A brand new Italian Tier VIII Premium tank destroyer is coming to Supertest: SMV CC-64 Vipera or Vipera for short. It will be the first vehicle released for the brand new Italian tank destroyer branch.
It is equipped with a 120 mm gun with a 5-shell magazine. There is an 8s loading time between shells and a total reload time of 36s. The gun has an accuracy of 0.44, an aiming time of 2.7s, and can depress the gun -10 degrees. While standard Armour-Piercing shells penetrate 220mm, special APCR shells penetrate 264mm. Damage per shot is 400 HP.
The vehicle features reliable armour for its tier. The frontal hull armour is 210mm and the turret armour is 275mm. The turret traverse angle is limited to 90 degrees. The vehicle has a decent HP pool of 1,400, a forward speed of 36km/h, and a specific power of 11.7h.p./t.
The Vipera is an Assault Tank Destroyer designed for frontline battles. This vehicle plays almost like a tank with a cyclic gun, but the 8-second reload time between shots and high damage per shot allow it to outplay many opponents in one-on-one combat.
Don’t forget about the Vipera’s low speed, however, which prevents it from quickly reacting to changes in battle and moving between flanks. So, choose your direction of attack in advance.
