I have to say the only heavy that has a chance vs lights is my black prince.  Its super funny bouncing the enemies shots. Its good gun depression i can shoot at them where they cant pen me. Small angle evry light shot bounces minus the type 62 with its heat rounds but it not too bad.  Its armor is anti light for tier 7 for me. Been a few rounds where 3vs1 and i took out 2 while team mate mopped up last light. Its dpm and gun handling nit so bad as i can counter the COD. Maybe its the crew skills mostly at 5, but the black prince is a fun heavy to troll vs lights.

 

 

If you have a tier 7 or lower troll tank what do you use?.

I don't think the BP is good against a compentent medium/light driver, it's poorly maneuverable so it will be circled easily. After all, that's the meta of this game, where lights, mediums and heaviums dominate a lot. As for counter them, a KV-2 and a SU-152 will send them straight to the garage.

BP isn't that good.  It's decent but not great.  I'd rather have a tiger 1 to deal with lights.

Two letters to defeat all the lights..... HE.  They need to hit you 5 to 8 times to kill you in your heavy.  You only have to hit them 2 or 3 times.

BP is slow but it has great hull traverse. You can spin in place and keep up with most mediums easily. So no, it is not circled easily. It may be if you just sit there and let them, but that's about it.

BP wont stand a chance against light tanks, say the type 62!!! The armor is worthless against HEAT.

Worst tier 7 heavy tank to face a light or a med would be tiger p

I also think BP might be the best against lights and meds if they decide to not run away. Even multiple mediums won't break you.

 

it has great and trollish armor to eat AP

it has gigantic tracks and spaced side armor to eat APCR

it has great hull + turret traverse to catch up with the COD

it has laser-precise guns which never misses even if enemy reaches blitz speed,

it has amazing rof to keep them tracked in front of you, while you adjust your best angle

 

after that, it depends on who is driving the BP, and who is driving the medium/light tanks.

 

 

yeah a SU will remove them in one shot (sometimes) but it will also be punished dead if said aggressor doesn't camp in front of the 152mm gun. One on one close combat, I would pick the BP first over the SU or the light tank.

minitelrose is spot on with his bp analysis here. it can handle itself very well.

 

i was trying to write up a post saying how all the others can do just fine, but in truth most of them do get exposed by the mobility of tanks at this tier, with the exception of the recently buffed tiger1. i mean, sure you can blast away half a light tanks health with a nice 122mm he shell, but you have just as much of a chance to do 75hp of damage and die before you reload your potato cannon. most of these heavies really struggle with turn fighting, and with the swarms buzzing around tier seven these days there is a serious, ever present risk of getting flanked by something. 

 

Black prince is such an overlooked tank. someday i'll go and repair my stats in it.
