War Thunder Dev-Blog PT-76 – https://warthunder.com/en/devblog/current/825
lol this tank is in Wargame so are we getting towards Leo 2A6?
This tank looks nice
I wonder how the turret rotation will be with those two barrels on the back
When is all this bullshit comming out?
Cant wait to destroy them…. All of them!! 😀 :D
you should take out the T-95 DOOM TURTLE again that was funny shit
Fuck gaijin, let a good ‘ol American company buy the game and fix it.
u noticed now bout the pt76? lol it’s a news from a month ago still nice video tho
Inb4 the PT76 bounces L7 APDS due to “extreme hull angling” despites its 12~15mm armor. Also, it’s BR is 5.7. Tigers, Panthers, and Jumbos rejoice.
Awesome video again phly! And what i think about the PT-76 is similar to what you had mentioned, althought, id love to use it, especially once they add the amphibious capabilities, as i think it will be good for having a unsuspected flanking route… It seems like a tank you have to be carefull with, and definetly not too brave with. Anyway, awesome vid, and off topic here, could i ask if you could perhaps fly out the F4U-1a or any corsair for that matter? I havent seen any of your vids where you have flown it, and im near done researching mine and would like to see you try it 😀 Keep up the good work man!
U r funny I lk you
boat tank !!
I am not sure why they are introducing this tank to the game. There is so much more that they could add. *cough* Japanese & British tanks. Regardless very informative video thanks for the insight.
the game would be 10x better if the pz3 had a lower br
if they ever add the US MBT70 with the longer barrel 152mm gun launcher then maybe I’ll come back to warthunder
OF COURSE THE RUSSIANS THANKS SO MUCH GAIJIN IM JUST KIDDING F OFF
2 tanks are comming to the coast 1 was destroxed and so they have 1 tank form the complete beache sry for bad englisch :D
at this phase we will see Leopard 2, T-90, and Abrams, in 2 Years! Kappa
PT 76 the russian leopard ?
+phlydaily I swear war thunder has lost it… BUT IT WILL NEVER DIE!!!!!
Does this mean the DD Sherman will be added? Lol.
FUCK YOU PHLY!!! THIS GAME GONNA DIE SOON WITH THOSE BS BR CHANGES!
Maybe a setup for naval battles? Kind of like the airplanes in tank battles you could switch to tanks and take a land objective?
their is a pt-85 what about that
if they add the M113 FSV I’ll probably kill someone
That’s funny, I never realized that people named key points on Poland off of Hobbiton from LoTR
german submarine tank ?!
mr tets finally made a video on this, I think gaijin will put it out and then forget about floating it for 2 years
Well at least this confirms most of the Japanese tank tree
if it can float in water…it can drive out to the sea on Jungle map and fuck tanks ut from the sea :P
Are you ever going to play some wt planes? I’ve seen enough tanks and boats. Thank you
I can imagine the new custom battles: war thunder tan- BOATS?
The PT-76 is ‘Legendary’.. really? You can tell it is a Russian company who does the game. In the real world armour piercing 50 cal will kill BMP-1s and BMP-2s and almost certainly the PT-76. Most of the American DD (amphibious) Sherman tanks sank as they launched them too far from shore. The British launched them closer to the shore, and a lot more (certainly not all) made it ashore.
Amphibious tanks would be amazing! I hope they implement more crazy stuff like that!
OK, so WTF is the point of this tank if they are not going to give it the ability to be amphibious? I mean really the only thing it has going for it is this fact, they are labeling it as “an amphibious tank”… but (say what), it wont be amphibious to start with? What a retarded idea!
FYI – yes a landing craft is called an LST, I know because my sorry ass was assigned to several of these in my days of service…;(
This thing is actually going to be so bad lol
Sorry Germany? First Tiger tanks were able to dive 4,5m deep for 2h…but of course THAT wont be added.
9.00 lol ..American engenieering! xD
More than 10% of the tanks on dday made the shore it was only the Americans that suffered heavy losses of the floating tanks because they released them at 3miles out instead of 1 mile out with tragic results.
Just wait until we get M113’s and LAV’s. And Japanese tanks, even though the only good one is probably the ha-go.
……really? Okay lets get started. First of all amphibious? War thunder i nearly did a backflip in my M41 over a trench. I saw a Tiger 2H flip onto its side from a small stone fence. Since the mini patch that came out, im now fighting T10Ms M103s and such in my King Tiger line up but somehow i never get those matches in my IS-2 1944. Needless to say i can not penetrate a T10M unless im extremely lucky. Even a side shot isnt guanteed because of the broken bounce mechanics that only seem to affect Russian tanks. For example, a T34-85 on flat ground (Poland road) bounced 2 King Tiger rounds. Also phly dont get your hopes up on “dynamic” amphibious warfare. Remember Finland ice being “dynamic”? The only danger on that ice field is getting stuck between the ice plates. Fast firing heat rounds? Okay R.I.P. panther front armor. Because IS-2s can pen a panther 100mm sliped armor but 88 kwk cant pen a 45mm T34. So in conclusion fix your biased game Gaijin before you add even more op russian tanks from the 1950s.
If pt 76 going to be amphibious, give the maus the snorkel.
Afaik only two of the swimming Shermans made it to the beach out of nearly 100. Mostly because the testing for them was done on calm, even waters, not on the english canal with all the waves and stuff.
Something tells me that thing is still going to bounce an 88
this addition doesnt make any sense to me.. They cant even balance out tanks we have atm and they still keep adding new ones..
phly why youre not talking about new br changes for top tier tanks ?
Ok now, THIS I like
… yet still I won’t play WT that much without improvement on other fronts…
They need to fix the bugs, the MMing, and the BR in ground forces before they do ships and they really need to fix the damage models before they add any more damned tanks!
In just the past week I’ve killed multiple invisible tanks, killed players that never showed up on my radar despite them being clearly in my line of sight (one of which was less than 30 feet away) and despite their saying MMing limits to a 1.0 BR spread I’m still seeing plenty of matches where 1.5 higher rated tanks are somehow getting in to supposedly low tier games with predictable results.
Finally the damage model on a lot of Soviet (surprise surprise) tanks is a really bad joke, I can post videos here of a tier 2 German 76mm bouncing 8 fricking shots from point blank range on a T126 while the T126 doesn’t bounce a thing despite firing every round on the move while the 76mm is completely stationary (I’m sure anybody that knows basic physics will tell you a 76mm isn’t gonna bounce at point blank ranges, its gonna have too much velocity that close so the penetration value would be insane) and another video where I took out the T35 which is as flat nosed as they come yet ended up taking out 9 tanks while getting pounded on by no less than 7 tanks at the same time, we’re talking 20mm autocannon, 37mm,45mm, even an arty right into the engine deck and not only does the tank not get knocked out but its still able to fire! Anybody wanna guess which tank the prez of Gaijin said was his favorite?
They need to worry about fixing their issues instead of just constantly adding shit as IMHO the GF playerbase is dying, all the big YouTubers have left because of BS like the low graphics mode cheat, wait times for the higher tiers is getting longer and longer as more players get tired of being sealclubbed by tanks that are simply too heavily armored for anything in their line up to stop and just bail, even on the air side I’m seeing longer and longer waits which tells me they are bleeding players. The way to fix this is NOT adding vehicles but to fix the BR system by adding a couple tiers or lowering the spread, removing the low graphics cheat, and by fixing their glitches and damage models so that vehicles and rounds behave like they should.
The fact that their “answer” to their issues is to use moderators (that frankly come off more like trolls) to squash any and all discussion and just pile more shit into the game? Really doesn’t give me a lot of hope for the future of WT, and this is coming from somebody that has spent plenty of $$ buying premium time and vehicles to support the game.
please take the he112 A-0 because you will snipe pilots like no tomorrow
Quite excited about this one. I think it will have to be played in a very specific role, pure flanking. Machineguns will really be a problem, but if played right its mobility and powerful gun could make short work of its enemies.
EDIT: Some German shells (most of them) have a fuse distance of 25-28mm, so this should bring some interesting results.
War Thunder ain’t gonna live very long with the bad choices Gajins been making.
Because thats what we need…..more russain tanks…..
M551 sheridan tank next?
Phly don’t forget about the Japanese amphibious tanks ;)
I think it was made for sr
you forgot to talk about the japanese floating tanks… Japan had A LOT of those kind of tanks. They were adaptations of regular tanks. There was the Ka-Mi, the Ka-Chi and many others. I think all japanese lights and mediums had some float tank variants
Amphibious landing when navy comes out?
U have any idea when the update is coming phly?
Phly nice points made and also really like the fact you did not instantly judge the game and said yourself that you have not played the PT-76 yet so can only specualte. Too many players instantly judge the game with the slightest change in it .Myself been playing for 2 years and always adopted a wait and see if its broken work around it till its fixed report it and still enjoying the game .
“its sloped a little bit” BOY ITS ALMOST FLAT , a 50 cal will never get trough that thing
MAKE A VIDEO ON THE NEW HORRID MATCHMAKING
When they finally make the PT-76s amphibious the first thing you need to do is Swordfish vs PT-76s, where the PT-76s swim out into open water and the Swordfish have to torpedo them.
Hi Phly, I love your channel. You always make me smile. Greatest YouTuber ever.
phly lst is right lst 105 I think it was. was here in Pittsburgh PA
Now Ivan will stalk you from the seas. One shooting ships like the Yamato.
Hey phly, what do you think of gaijin adding an “addon” armro system? Like when you are in the garage there’s an option for the player to put on extra tracks, sand bags and such on the tank, the con is that it makes the tank slower but ofc gives it more protection
To be fair to the .50 cal, it was designed as an anti-vehicle weapon, and 12.7mm was the common size for WW2 anti-tank rifles. The ability of a .50 cal to damage and knock out what is essentially a giant armored car just means that the .50 cal is working as it was intended to be.
And to be fair it won’t be the first paper-armored tank in the game, just look at the 75mm M3 GMC. It can be killed with rifle caliber MGs from the front after all.
You use google to translate mm to inch Iike 304mm=12inch and 20mm is crap armor
it can be an all out war with ships
Guijin will nerf the 50.cal so it will not be able to penn this thing! watch it will happen.
Phly, do you know that Gaijin going to introduce to the game a Global Map “World War”? A map where by winning the battles one of the side will cap zones and get resources from it. What do you think about it? It’s for clan or regiments (don’t remeber how is it called) fights obviously.
Now we just need the Stridsvagn 103 (The S-tank)
Gaijin should really start fixing the major problems of the game before adding new things…
Phly comrade, today is my birthday, can you shout to me?
another tank which isnt needed
Phily the pt76 is proof against 7.62 and small artillery fragments but is weak against 50cal and large artillery fragments.
Internet numbers on armor can be misleading, the PT-76 front is at a very steep angle and the turret would be more than 20mm, turrets are generally thicker in there armor than chassis. The sides on the other hand… will be fun to .50 cal.
looks pretty cool phly
Well lower tanks have lower depressions, but cover is open to you that is not open to bigger tanks. On some maps this can be really helpful on some maps, on others not so much.
War Thunder ships would be very nice, but there hasn’t been any talk about it :(
The reason the amphib M4’s sunk was they were only rated for a certain level of waves and swell. On D-Day the swell coming in was much higher than they expected.
yet again a russian tank … when will they ad a german post war tank ffs i mean rly .. the leo .. that all tht comes after ww2 …
Phly, your favorite plane in game is screwed…
the chase of this was used by the USSR for anti air and even had a tow missile so they could be set up the ground work of it.
MY PANTS ARE FUCKING STICKY
Bottomline, it’s not a tank, it’s an armored vehicle.
actually Sherman DDs worked well, the Americans just failed at Utah beach and most of their DDs there sunk because they let them out way too far from the beach.
OK amphibious vehicles in the future maybe. ….. PREPARE yourselves to encounter the japanese amphibious vehicles! Here would be another nice point why war thunder would add japanese tech tree to ground forces.
what i am exided for (just speculition) is if there are like 5 friendly ships and enemy ships and there are like lets say 2 (oore moore tanks depends how mutch players in battle) and like a ship round penetrates and the ship is about to sink and you want to get out of the ship with your amfibies tank you get out and get to land start to land and keep going and if the ship round hits the tank area that it kane pen the tan ass well (wich poore jermany will have hard times with it) and if the round penetrates AND your tank that you shoud be able t get to spawn on land you now
Will they ever put in modern tanks? then this game will never die…
Poor Armored Warfare everyone’s taking stuff from them, Wot is trying to take their Arty mechanics and WT is gonna start taking their tanks
I hope this opens up a game mode where it is a island assault. 1 Team is in control of the island and has dug in positions and the other team is either in amphibious tanks or is being carried through to the beach by landing craft. The 2nd team has to try to take control of the island. That would be awesome.
DONT ADD FUCKING NEW TANKS, FIX THE FUCKING MMAKING, IT IS BAD, IT DOESNT MAKE SENSE, ITS TERRIBLE, EVEN HORSE SHIT MAKES MORE SENSE, WHY THE FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO FIGHT FUCKING MAUS TANKS, AND T-10M’S AND IS 3 EVEN IS-4 AND JAGDTIGERS IN MY TIGER 2 AND WHY AM ULI SUPPOSED TO FIGHT MIG-15 (German) AND ME-163 AND SABRES AND NORMAL MIG-15 THE JOB WAS TO FIX THE F2H CAUSE IT WAS DO OP NOT TO MAKE IT USELESS!!!!!!!!!! FIX THE MATCHMAKING!!
I also think they should add a system in the “Test Drive” Where you can spawn any tank in the game and put it up to the test with the tank you chose. I really enjoy the “Test Drive” as it is what i do when im relaxing and dont want to fight other players.
germany needs the panzer kannone 90mm
I can’t wait for the specialized German Schwimmwagen 128 with it’s deadly and powerful 2 cm flak. That’s 20 mm of pure German innovation coming at you. Fired from a modified Volkswagen Beetle. Everyone will fear the deadly devastation that this pure death machine will bring. Once you hear it’s powerful 4 cylinder boxer engine the Americans and Russians will shit bricks the size of a continent.
Imagine when they add ships noobs taking out the PT and trying to knock out other ships in the water with that puny 76.
CUZ FOOTBALL, MURICA!!!
Germans actually worked on amphibious tank in 1940. They modified some Pz. IIs, Pz. IIIs and Pz. IVs for operation Sea Lion.
Im exited for this tank because I am working on the american light tank line and the m22 is amazing (In my opinion) so now I need to work on the russian light tank line so I can get this and it wont be a premium so even better
please gajin add the canadian modified bren carriar whit a 50mm
well 200 m of penetration wouldv been pretty op xD
War thunder must be having a tough time with ships. Or they just dont care about losing players. We have enough tanks ffs we need ships!
Gib schwimmpanzer 4
consider this: it was brought about in 1951. It’s well within the cutoff date, its armour is paper and its gun is meh. It’ll be pretty well balanced.
War Thunder was promising ships like in World of War ships…..ummm were are they…..
Any idea when the mythical patch 1.53 will be coming out? I have been looking but have not seen anything promising
What do you think about the crazy repair cost increase? What about the BR compression changes?
“Though it has only light, bulletproof armor…” Translation: It has armor sufficient to bounce 12cm shells.
bro saying 7.62 mean nothing thats just diameter i can name eleven 7.62s right now anyways by light armor i hope thats .50 bmg and below or in that range P.S. not trying to be an asshole srry
i love how phly has yet to talk about the SHIT ASS balancing of every single plane 6.3 to top tier recently, yet he has ‘concerns’ about one fucking tank (granted it will still have problems but nowhere near as much as their have been since the jet commpression)
I don’t even play this game anymore. Ima just unsubscribe :3
I just checked the wt wiki and the is2’s he shell has about 40mm of penetration…..if a pt76 is hit by one of those its game over wherever its hit
It’s going to be like the m22 locus
to all of you saying they need to fix br and mm before ships arrive . A aah one thing 😀 ships will come in 1.5 years and more :D
Maybe they could make japan called asia and at the beginning just japan and then maybe some vietnam shit?????
The Pt-76 got a fire rate of 15 shots per minute…thats really fast fireing.
Ok this is one of the reasons I left war thunder because it’s a f’ed up game and second because of the shit and overly hating community. Everyone is so fuken biased, anything Russian that comes out, everyone starts hating. Anything American and we algood. Amd after 2 years people still complaining of Russian bias. What do u want from the game? It’s not made by an American company which will make all ur shermans and p51 wet dreams come to life. Soz for essay but this shit has been going on for way to long
Am Phly… mixed tank battle are a thing in WT… whene did america fought russia with geemany or whene did germany and russia fought america?!?! F**ing never, and this is a thin in every game!
Can I just say its probably cooing to be like a hell cat it’s going to be absorbing shots just like the hell cat
Phlydaily, will you be addressing the massive problems Gaijin caused with their latest patch? Maybe if you give your opinion Gaijin is more likely to fix this abomination.
gaijin said .50 can pen the lower front within 50 meters and the side armor within 1k meters
25.2mm = 1 inch
it would be SUCH bullshit if the barrel will be able to go through the fuel tanks beacoe the Tiger H1’s gas canisters on the corners blocks the barrel so the barrel has to go up to get past those canisters
This tank blows… Paper armor and it doesn’t even have its amphibious edge yet. Why would you waste your time covering this piece of shit tank? It’s not going to do anything, but get clubbed.
some1 please tell me or lie to me the t-72 was built after 1970s
the Russian’s depression give me depression.
I can see it now. A small naval force trying to protect a group of transport ships from a larger naval force and whatever tanks make it then become embroiled in a land battle
WT should concentrate on implementing sea instead of yet another Russian tank
lets be honest, stop making new tanks, planes etc… and make bomber and tank cockpits!!!
Next’s thing you know the BMP-1 and T-62 come out in war thunder:D
1 inch = 2,54cm = 25,4mm
It will be able to penetrate 200 meters? goodness phly…
they should add the Sheridan light tank it makes the cut off and is amphibious too
>Plays WT 1.53 >Map : Normandy >Plays as PT-76 >Floats to England
Hey, it’s NOT a tank, it’s an armored personnel carrier. The Barrett M82 with API penetrates this thing at will. That’s why the US fielded the Barrett, to kill these things, before they could let out the troops it was carrying.
Cant wait for the next ten years when this game will be finished. (thats not really a bad thing)
Honestly the US tank tree is kinda lacking in variety.
They definitely need to seperate ww2 stuff from others. I don’t want to play against 50s stuff in my tiger 1. Even if it has shitty gun and paper thin armor. I started play warthunder because it was ww2 game. Okey if they want to add post war stuff. Its great. I will play that too. But it need to be seperated.
The Shermans only sank for the Americans, who launched them too far out. One made it to the beach at Omaha. For the British and Canadians they just worked.
I saw the thumbnail and i freaked out, that thing looks like a BMD-4
I honestly think this is gonna play like the pz3 L/ M with its fast firing gun and speed except the pz 3s gun is a bit sad with its pen where this has high pen 76.
Great now on jungle I’ll get sniped from a Russian siting out in the ocean
He ammo ho
guys it can be killed it’s not invincible , don’t worry
just watch a god dam t90 will be added
soo It will be have at least 7,0 br right?
Honestly if I was using this tank I wouldn’t even play the objective, Id just enjoy swimming around the entire time.
So when are they going to add Japanese armored SUVs?
Rubber ducky lake battles, sounds like fun.
Isn’t the Pe-8 coming in 1.53? If it is Phly plz talk about it
This could be quite cool, for example in sim you could go to the beach on jungle and hide behind the big landing craft then ambush players, Possibly. Although it does have a very very very weak gun
You can tell this tank is not even supposed to fight other tanks because the typical load of ammunition it carries is (out of 36 shells total) x24 HE, x4 APCR, x4 AP-T, and x8 HEAT. It carries more HE than it does anti-armor rounds combined, which means its an anti-infantry vehicle than anti-tank.
This tank will be god awful. Weak ass armour sure the top is sloped as but the lower hull is a big juicy which any tank can get through. The gun is more for an infantry suport role and its ap potential is awful and same with the HEAT. Plus this tank never carried Sabot nor HEATFS well Soviets only got them rounds in 1967. Lets face facts here its going to be awful so thats why im not hyped, I’m more disappointed by Gaijin that they put pointless tanks in when they should focus on British tanks, you know the tanks people want.
This thing is going to suck.
DAM 200 METERS OF PEN lol
lol, pens 200m of armor, lol
imagine when the ships come out! I see amazing custom battles!
armour that thin AP is gonna be useless against it HE only and most heavy tank drivers dont roll with HE loaded
Even with its fancy post-war ammo the T-44 and IS-2 still have better penetration (why better if you count the round the IS-2 mod 1944 got)
Perhaps rather than deploying tanks at will, player-controlled ships may be able to be used as a spawn point OR AI ships are spawn points and pose as objectives for both teams – if the ships are destroyed, then they couldn’t be used as spawn points. (Of course, you’d need to have secondary spawn points where land-based vehicles can spawn, as opposed to amphibious-only).
Speculating of course, and not really thinking much will come of it, but the potential is cool.
Do the t-35
I believe this gun has literally next to no depression. Good luck with that…
I guess “most successful” is a relative term….
this tank will be a spawn camper!
Haha the only reason i watch videos on Warthunder any more is to see how Gaijin continues to screw their game up xD it just reassures me that I made the right decision when i completely stopped playing it… 😉 However, in all fairness I might come back when they add the British tanks; but I’m not sure why because I’m about 90% sure I’ll be hugely disappointed lol
All of these tanks were at least in a prototype stage. There’s a big difference between paper and prototype tanks. Prototype tanks did Infact exist and were built and paper tanks weren’t. Big difference there. Most of these are prototypes due to the lack f resources and due to the lack of time http://live.warthunder.com/post/254120/en/
Imagine the flanks you could do. such as on Jungle etc
