Supertest: ASTRON Rex Tier VIII American Medium

2 min read

The ASTRON Rex 105 mm, an American Tier VIII Premium medium tank that just arrived at the Supertest.

Its 105 mm gun is equipped with a 5-shell autoloader with quite awful intra-shell reload time. Loading time between shells is 4.5 s, and the magazine reloads in 37 s. The gun has an accuracy of 0.43 at 100m and an aiming time of 2 s, as well as good stabilization and 9 degrees of gun depression. Standard shells penetrate 185 mm of armour, and the special APCR shell can penetrate 250 mm.

Damage per shot is 320 HP. Frontal turret armour is 220 mm, and the durability of the vehicle is 1,250 HP. The maximum forward speed is 45 km/h and its specific power is 13.5 h.p/t. This vehicle features a high maximum backward speed of 30 km/h. While the backward speed is very high, the specific power is worse than some heavy tanks, so don’t expect a fast tank at all.

The tank will feature a crew of three, a Commander (Radio Operator, Loader) a Gunner (Loader) and a Driver, a nightmare for crew skills with so many roles in the Commander. The vehicle does have a historical background, the ASTRON program was developed during the 1950s and had several variants.

All characteristics are with a crew trained to 100% and subject to change before the final release.

  1. this is the weirdest combinations of stats for a atank i have sen in a while lol

    1. Garbage turret (always with the tumor on it for USA), garbage reload between shots, garbage pen and holy **** that’s some bad dispersion. Garbage tank in general.

      Remove the tumor, decrease disp,give it some 20mm pen to both prem and normal and make it a normal reload and it would’ve been interesting.

      Sad.

    2. Honestly this should have been a tier 6 with the gun that was actually proposed for the Rex I. But of course they had to make ANOTHER tier 8, because we don’t have enough already.

      As for the cupola turret, WG really needs to do something about tanks getting killed by being shot in cupola turrets where the internal damage would be minimal, it’s ridiculous at this point.

  2. Lol, no gun handling, no mobility, no armor. America must make shit tanks compared to Russians.

    How can anyone take this game serious anymore? Its the same shit time after time. Maybe 1 or 2 exceptions, but take a russian tank and you usually have the best of everything

  3. Aaaanooother premium. Myyyyyy god this game is just in such a terrible state with a company that is just filled with greed. Bah!
