WoT RU: Tier 8 Premium Flamethrower Tank


Don’t be distracted by the Kanonenjagdpanzer base, it’s just a test construct to analyze the new mechanic.


XXX (USSR, Tier-8, premium, mechanic: flamethrower) went out yesterday to Lesta’s supertest, only for the RU region.
The tank has new flamethrower mechanics. The flamethrower deals damage depending on the armor of the enemy, but the distance of the flamethrower is no more than 150 meters.

The tank has an “autoloader” with a single type of HE projectile. 3 shells in a drum with a small reload between them.

A little about the mechanics: the whole gameplay is built in such a way that you have to drive up to the enemy very close. Because of this, it is almost impossible to avoid taking damage. Also, when fired, the flamethrower lasts for a few seconds. The damage dealt to an enemy tank depends on the armor. Maximum damage will be dealt to the thinnest armor. When dealing damage, an enemy tank will receive a crew stun, which can be reset with a first aid kit.

The machine used in the test is the German Kanonenjadgdpanzer, the appearance of the gun was taken fromDurchbruchswagen 2, and the mechanics are completely taken from the Art of Strategy RTS mode (April 2022) at the flamethrower bunker. All this was collected in the prem USSR, later, where the tank will come out. But the release will take some time. These are very early tests of the mechanics of the flamethrower.
Also, the Lesta developers drew their own icon for the tank, which is different from all others in the game.
