From the 27th of April, the T-103 Russian Tier 8, Premium Tank Destroyer T-103 will be available from the (EU) premium shop. That's right another Russian prem tank, as we all whoop for joy. But is it OP? Is it worth the money? I'll give you a run down of the stats etc so you can make up your own opinions.
First impressions for me was, man this thing is FUGLY!! Its like a KV-3 and a KV-5 had some sexy time and this was spawned. It was actually developed on the basis of the experimental T-100 heavy tank. It was built with the intention of neutralizing fortified emplacements and also for coastal defense. However the work on the project was discontinued at the blueprint stage and never entered service.
So, in the game then, which is what you really want to know, what modules does it have? (click pics for slideshow)
A very nice 130mm gun, with 440 average damage per shot, with a dispersion of 0.32. However i have found that the shells seem to dip low in the shot from the reticle. Its also worth to note that the premium shell is also AP with 307mm of penetration but costs 4.8k per shot. The HE shells have 65mm of pen and can do anywhere between 435 and 725 damage, obviously if you pen. Its fairly mobile for a chunky type TD with a top speed of 40kph and the gun depression of 8 degrees is good. With my crew I have the reload down to 9 seconds, aim time to 1.88 seconds and the DPM to 2917!! The view range is decent at a base 380m
The overall stats for this as a premium seem well balanced (100% crew)-
The armour also in my opinion can be a bit dec
