Just a question for the oldtimers, what has been over the years the most regular OP tank there has been? I would not consider the Otsu of B2, that are just anomalies. But are the Annihalator, the Smasher, the Emil 1, more OP then others before in their age?

What was the most OP tank ever, before it got nerfed of powercreeped? Is this the age of the OP tanks, or just another chapter soon to be replaced by new shiny OP vehicles?

Contenders? The IS3 defender? Drac? Helsing? Luchs? T92E1? ,HEat 54? I am surely forgetting a lot of contenders.

Definitely IS tanks, Dragon used to be very OP as well and I would also say the 140 looong time ago.

The Tankenstein and IS-3 Defender were OP when they first came out back in 2015. 

 

The Tankenstein had better armour than the Tiger P, and the gun from a SU-100Y with very high alpha damage on its premium ammo.

 

The IS-3 Defender was the first autoloader, with 1,200 burst damage in 23 seconds, plus much better gun depression than the tech tree IS-3.  

 

They were the beginning of the end of Blitz as a WoT clone on mobile, and the beginning of Blitz as a fantasy arcade game.

The IS-6 armour was super troll.  But it didn't have the top gun it has now, only the old one with 175 mm of AP penetration.

There is always going to be something, it just gets pushed aside by new tanks)

It might have been at one time.....definitely NOT now as WG simply have nerfed its pen and alpha, as well as mainly tier 4 games which providing is not full of dead heads, it cannot pen at all............the Straight Ke NI is now so much better!

I know, I don't have to guess. :P

 

Elias, please first define "regular" here. The answer depends on that. Does it mean a tech tree tank?

 

I know it any way.

No, WG have not nerfed the Ke-Ni Otsu's penetration or alpha damage.  It is the same as it always was.

 

They have massively buffed the penetration, aiming time, armour and hit points of all the tech tree Tier III tanks, but not buffed the Otsu, making the Otsu look bad in comparison.

 

The Otsu now has to fire prammo to match the AP penetration of the other Tier III lights.  Or it can stick with the 40 mm penetration of regular AP and accept that half the shots will bounce.

Thanks Eliasdepelias! I actually crunched some numbers and wrote a blog article about it. Yes it has its faults since it is consider the best of all time, not the best during the tank's peak moment. 

 

Who guessed it right?

Oh the IS-6 Useless can't be there, it's not all OP.

 

But very interesting comparison!
