I review the T95, a tier 9 American tank destroyer in World of Tanks (WoT), with replays of tier 10 Fisherman's Bay and tier 9 Lakeville battles.
The T95 is the quintessential bully. The frontal armor is incredibly strong, and the only meaningful weak spots are the two cupolas, which still have ~212mm of effective armor. The side armor is thick and sloped toward the middle of the tank, so with angling the side is difficult to penetrate.
Strengths and Weaknesses
+ Superb frontal hull armor: 305mm to over 400mm effective, aside from a thin silver at the bottom of the hull which is still ~250mm effective
+ Superb side armor (152.4mm) that is sloped and will bounce shells when you are angled 30 degrees relative to incoming fire
+ Excellent alpha (750)
+ Good gun handling for a turretless TD
+ Low profile
– Very low top speed (20 kph)
– Very sluggish acceleration
– Cupolas are vulnerable to accurate high-tier guns
– Poor gun depression (-5)
– Lack of turret limits brawling around corners
I talk through how I'm reading the battle as it unfolds and discuss key decisions and mistakes. My hope is that these videos meaningfully help players improve their gameplay.
