Is it just me or does the tank look taller in real life than in the game?
You are not the only one. Real height would probably hurt its camo rating.
Russian bias *tinfoil hat on*
This would also hurt the slope.
You are correct, it is MUCH smaller in game than in RL. I believe is8 is the same story? (As they are also same chassis). If I recall correctly, its because of “balance reasons”
Complain about Sherman instead.
Stronk QA – well not really, but they dont seem very eager to fix it :D Or its just game vs RL optical illusion?
No it doesn’t. Notice the size at 1:28 when he is standing just right next to it at front.
Now look at my brother (1,76cm, therefore nearly 20cm smaller in size) standing right in front of a JP:
If anything it might be a bit to tall ingame.
Go to a tank museum and get a feeling of tank sizes. U would be surprised how tiny soviet tanks are in comparison.
Panther and KT are just huge (Sherman is very tall, too).
So it is really just a virtual world optical illusion – I wonder if Maus is big as I think it is :D
Sherman next to a KT
Maus hull is not that much taller than KTs hull. But its just a massive tank. Everything is big on this one.
Chieftain next to Maus hull.
Gives u a good size comparison in case of both, Maus hull and Obj. 268.
you should note that that KT has it’s tracks about 30 to 50 cm lower than Sherman (a fact that is many times “overlooked” by those who use it for evidence that Sherman should be taller than KT… ;) )
268 has correct size in WoT.
30mm of armor
30mm spaced armor ;) Eats HEAT like no other, because Russia Stronk :p
sounds like someone doesnt know how heat works in RL ;)
From what I could gather from HEAT mechanics it would penetrate the outer plate but the inner plate would like not be penetrated because of pressure loss due to open space behind the outer armour. Heat really doesn’t like open spaces behind armour.
Dafuq? I saw this video 2 or 3 months ago…
There was ruskie video I think.
Especially if it’s uploaded 7 hours ago ;)
That’s just it – I swear I saw the video on the 268, with all its oil leaking glory, at least 2 months ago.
Oooor… yeah, Woras might be right and it wasn’t a Chieftain video, but a separate RU video presenting the 269 altogether.
Curse my memory…
I saw the video a few hours ago you’re talking about. It’s pretty russian, driving out and in, leaking like fuck. …
