A first for the American tree has arrived on supertest -- a premium tier 8 tank destroyer, known as the TS-5! Previously, the highest-tier premium tank destroyer in the US tree was tier 7 (the M56 Scorpion), but this is looking to change that. The vehicle should also perform more closely to the high-tier American TDs, since it is characterized by strong frontal armor protection (and a decent slab of health) at the cost of speed/maneuverability.
In short -- compared to the T28, the TS-5 currently has marginally better listed frontal protection (in addition to only having one cupola, rather than two) and top speeds, as well as a slight increase in rate-of-fire, offset by vastly-inferior accuracy (0.44 vs the T28's 0.38), a slightly lower power-to-weight ratio, and a taller hull/casemate profile.
