World of Tanks Supertest: Chimera Details

2 min read

Chimera was a postwar design of a heavy British tank, capable of competing directly with the Soviet IS-3 tank. Despite the original solutions and the use of experience from the German tank school, the project did not arouse interest and it was discontinued.

The vehicle, if introduced, will be a medium Tier VIII British tank with very good stats and it’s 490 alpha signature gun. I still hope something changes in the vehicle, as at the moment I believe it still is overpowered for what it should be. Supertest results will determine the fate and final values.

  1. are you sure you DPM is accurate?

    4.47 shots in a minute with 490 alpha
    that only gives you dpm of 2190.3

    oh wait….you use the HE to calculate……

  2. The paint on this tank reminds me of the current personal mission tanks and the camo they receive

  3. Was it, golly, we used German experience, did we? – funny they seemed to have missed that chapter out in its official documentation 😛

  4. ******ed tank.
    Have decent armor for tier 8.
    Against tier 10 it would be useless, like every other tier 8 medium, Mutz, Pilot, Super Persh, T44-100, T54-mod1 etc and it couldn’t be balanced to tier 10 tanks it will meet.
    But if we look other side, most tier 6 tanks will be 1 shot and 10% hp left.
    With 64mm of HE it can oneshot all tier 6 lights easily, and severely screw tier 7 lights in 1 shot.
    So, after 1 shot your tier 6 tank is useless and will be dead if arty sneeze on you.

    But… Tier 6 will be raped anyway.
    Tier 7 will be 2 shots most of the time, you only need slight highroll.

    And look at M4 Rev and other tier 8 heavy hitters. They have no DPM, no pen or any other advantage.
    They have ok pen, ~200 pen is GOOD on tier 8 medium. 250 for gold is GOOD.
    232 and other **** pen is OP on tier 8 medium.
    But, i digress.

    It will be broken with that alpha, especially while top tier. And unable to be balanced.
    And unless it’s reward tank it won’t be possible to nerf it.
    And we don’t need OP premium. -_-

  5. This is preaplha betatest or something? That mobility is too insane.
