The Chinese WZ-114 heavy tank has been sent again to the closed Supertest. Compared to the previous round of testing, the tank has undergone many changes, and the vehicle is now tested at Tier IX. The tank also changed its status from Premium to Promotional.
It has a 130 mm gun with 530 hit points of damage per shot. Its standard Armor-Piercing shell penetrates 266 mm of armour, while a special HEAT shell penetrates 311 mm. The aiming time is 3.6 s, reload time is 17 s. The vehicle retains its distinctive feature—good accuracy of 0,33 m, which allows for aiming conveniently at an enemy’s weak spots, and delivering fire from the distance.
Maximum speed is 33 km/h, specific power is 12.1 h.p./t. The turret front armour reaches 300 mm, while the hull armour reaches 140 mm. General durability is high and comprises 2,300 hit points. Combined with good frontal armour, this will let the tank improve its lifetime on the battlefield.
The WZ-114 remains a heavy tank with strong frontal armour, unremarkable speed characteristics, but excellent accuracy for heavy tanks. The main combat tactics haven’t changed: head-on, preferably with some support from your allies who won’t let enemy mobile tanks outflank you, or force you into a manoeuvre battle. Good final accuracy unlocks a relatively rare opportunity for heavy tanks to confidently fight at medium and long distances.
All characteristics are with a crew trained to 100% and subject to change before the final release.
