Supertest: Matilda LVT British Medium Tank

2 min read

A new British Tier IV medium tank enters Supertest, Matilda LVT. If you never heard of this tank, its normal, it a creation of Wargaming based on a Matilda hull put together with a spare turret, it was never a proposal or even planned thing to do. A photo of this tank is available on Google taken in an Australian farm.

The vehicle also has a decent 75 mm gun. Its standard AP shell penetrates 91 mm on average, while the average penetration of its special APCR shell is 144 mm. It has a damage per shot of 110 HP, an accuracy of 0.43, and an aiming time of 1.7 s. Its engine power is 190 h.p., has a power-to-weight ratio of 8 h.p./t, and can reach a top speed of 24 km/h. Considering its sub-par mobility but excellent gun, this tank is best played at long range where it can realize its firing potential.

The vehicle is likely to be a lootbox exclusive for Holiday Ops 2022, coming this December but the information is yet to be confirmed. More details as soon as possible.

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

  1. Conflicting information?
    Invented by wargaming… yet a photo of the actual thing exists?
    Guess its a one-off thing then, but it’d still be interesting to know the history behind it.

    1. Just because it exists it doesn’t mean it’s historical. Maybe it’s a botched restauration or a dude had a Matilda hull and kitbashed an LVT turret (that never was equipped with a 3 inch gun btw) on it. Just like the famous 17pdr TD conversion of an M3 Grant. People said it’s real but it was actually a botched restauration in a museum.

    2. Well, then isn’t that still a part of history that people might like to know?
      If nothing else, it is to keep fact from fiction.
      Just so we all know that it might actually be a botched restoration like that M3 Grant you mention.

    3. It’s unfortunate that M3 Grant with a 17-pdr was a botched restoration, because it would be really cool if it were real.

      Though what Wargaming really ought to be adding as a premium is the very real M4A4 Sherman in India that was re-gunned with the D-56T off a PT-76.

    1. @Nishi Kinuyo

      That is the botched restoration I was talking about…

  2. It is just literally someone who had a Matilda hull without a turret and just put an M8 turret on top of it just so the tank wasn’t there without a turret… There is no history behind it, nothing, its like that T-34 hull that someone decided to just put a T62 turret on top of it…
