So looks like they finally added more nations to the vehicle bay! So, in the chinese sector lets get to business and start the first Chinese thread.

 The WZ 135G FT as many of us know is the upcoming premium Chinese tier VII tank destroyer. Based on the pictures this is what we know about it:

  1. It has a turret, although semi traversable like FV/Grille
  2. looks like it has decent speed
  3. Same gun as IS with 217mm of APCR pen and 175mm of AP pen.
  4. Potentially a larger ELC AMX from PC.
  5. Weight is just 25 tonnes, so armor will likely be light.

Questions that remain to be answered:

  1. Will it be like another Dracula at tier VII?
  2. Hp?
  3. Acceleration good?
  4. Will nubs rage because of it?

These questions are important, but will be answered probably on the 28th when it is added to the game. Hopefully they will not be as game breaking as IS-3D's and possibly draculas. This is all I have to say, and please update this thread with any new leaked info or correct my wrong facts. Thank you!

 

Thanks to brick sniper and Pittoors_ for providing more info

Most fake tanks so have been over-performing compared to normal tanks if you like it get it imo it will more then likely be good

Let's get it

this tank isn't fake, there is a picture of one on another thread about this. It went by another name but WG changed it to WZ 135G

It is a prototype to the Type 89 tank destroyer. Kinda like the STB-1 since they are both from the 70's (insert Steve Austin, Star Wars, Nixon, 'Nam, ect)

Actually we do know some stats on this tank! 1 it's total weight is about 25 tons, meaning it's got low armor and most likely good speed 2 it's gun is almost exactly the IS's gun, having 175 mm AP pen and 217 mm HEAT/APCR/Premium AP and about four RPM,( <—which makes for a pretty garbage DPM for a TD of its tier) the aim time and accuracy stats aren't known yet (however based on the prior stats its safe to say it will probably be pretty bad-mediocre)

 

now this is all subject to change, but if the WZ-135G FT's stats do end up being something like this then it will probably be the worst (in terms of gun performance) premium tier VII TD. However we don't yet know the tanks speed, and based on the pretty mediocre gun (for a tier VII TD that is) plus the very low amount of weight I'd take a guess and say that we're about to have yet another speed demon at tier VII

Turret traverse is limited (I think it was at 40 degrees), like a Grille 15 or a Death Star. It probably doesn't have any armor and I think the acceleration is good. The penetration is probably the average for a tier VII 122mm gun (compare it to an IS/IS-2 or a SU-122-44 for perspective). It probably plays for like a light tank (pretty much a high tier ELC AMX) rather than a TD despite it's class.

 I just got some new info! 

The WZ-135G FT will also have A. a 50 kph speed limit forward B. it will have pretty bad Chassis traverse and absolutely garbage turret traverse,  C. it will have an open top turret, (which it means won't be able to use vents, RIP better gun stats:arta:    )  D. it will have 10° of gun depression, and C. it will have a pitiful 950 HP

So having vents - which improve air quality in a cramped enclosure, gives a 5% boost to crew performance but being able to breath fresh air in an open top turret has no effect on crew performance? That just seems [edited] backwards. 

                                        

                                                                                                                          Keep it old school.

maybe that aspect is already included in the base stats? But we won't ever know. Just glad I didn't buy this thing, though I have a feeling it'll someday get a buff that'll make it super good. Helsing 2.0 here we go!
