Hi folks, just was in a game where with a T-21 and M-25, and a Leopard all going after a T_34-85 Victory that he defeated all after multiple multiple hits on his armor... Just seemed unrealistic or supernatural :-)     Is there something special about the Victory vs the regular T-34-85?   Anyway, he didn't seem to have that much of an advantage in HP and I was hitting him in the green zone... 

 

Just seemed invincible to regular med tanks...    I even think a KV-1 got in a hit on him as well...

Gold spam more. 

 

He probably was really lucky or good, or both, or your teammates were players of a much lower skill level. 

 

Probably all of the above. 


Masteries: T-34-85, Luchs, Flakroaster, JPanther x2, KV-2, SU-152, Panzer IVs, BT-2, T18

Tanks I like: M6, Pz. II G, Luchs, T-28, T-34-85, KV-1 (sold), 

Current Garage (* = fully researched): Panzer IVs*, M7*, M4A3E8*, T20*, M6 (Woo crew grind!), T18*, Hellcat*, T25AT*, Luchs*, Panzer III/IV*, Nashorn*, JPanther*, BT-2*, MT-25*, T-28*, T-34-85*, KV-1S*, KV-2*, IS (That grind though...), SU-152*, and zero slot(s). (How did I get 20 slots?)

The Victory has slightly worse stats than a fully researched T-34-85. Same armor though I believe.

 

You say you penned him 5 times? All the T21 guns do 160 average so that's 800, leaving what, ~130 hp? No one else penned him?

For some reason I think the victory has better armor than the regular T-34-85. I think some time ago they had changed its classification from heavy to medium tank.

My memory's really faint so I'm not sure if this is correct.

The heavy tank classification was an error. 

But yeah, it did happen. 


Thanks to Zennosha and/or Panbun, I have a shiny new signature! Thank you!

If said driver of the Victory has played more than 1k games in russian mediums, odds are he would have comfortably fought 3 lower tier vehicles, even 2 at the same time. By shooting the lowest hp enemy (or if they are the same HP, targeting the most dangerous gun) you can reduce the amount of firepower on you and face two tanks at one. Another key thing about the russian mediums is that you can wiggle your frontal plate and side-hug very effectively. This also gives you protection if done correctly. 

 

[Edit] In other words, the 85 all the way to the 62A are very strong brawling tanks with solid DPM

Well a Mt25 has poor penetration and the Victory has pretty good armor for its tier, so there you go.

 

I'm not sure on the exact differences between the Victory and the T34-88, but i can take a look quickly.

The Victory is the T-34-85 with the 2nd gun, but slightly higher ROF. The second gun has a bit less pen than the Top gun. I don't think there are any difference in armor between the two.
