Today, we’re setting off the first Supertest of Polish progression vehicles, namely the 50TP Tyszkiewicza (tier IX heavy) and the 60TP Lewandowskiego (tier X heavy). These tanks are quite compact for their class, with excellent protection and above average alpha damage. Their speed may be lacking, but with protection like this, you don’t necessarily need to hurry in battle. Read on for more details.
Being the topmost vehicle, the 60TP Lewandowskiego has great all-around armor and a large caliber gun dealing 750 points of alpha damage (we’ve implemented both 130mm and 152mm versions and will choose between them later on). The drawbacks of 60TP are mediocre penetration and limited mobility (due to a low specific power of 10-13 hp per-ton). This tank will play as a compact “superheavy” slowly pushing through enemy defense thanks to its ability to block lots of damage and its high alpha.
The 50TP Tyszkiewicza resembles its bigger brother: not fast, well armored in all places, and with impressive alpha for a heavy. A single shot from its 130mm gun will deal around 560 points of damage, but our tests will help us define a precise amount. As the 50TP Tyszkiewicza is a Tier IX vehicle, its mobility and protection parameters are lower than those of the 60TP Lewandowskiego.
The current stats for the top Polish heavies are mostly reference marks spelling out the gameplay role, yet they allow for very comfortable play. We are going to try different values for their alpha – and for their mobility and targeting parameters as well.
Following our tests, the stats on the 50TP and the 60TP may change; we’ll look at the data and your feedback and introduce adjustments if needed.
Stay tuned and good luck in your battles!
