The armor is practically useless; even though it has a bit more than the regular Chi-Nu, it does not reliably bounce much other than auto-cannons though only from the front. Can be done, but keep calm, assess and take them one at a time. Miscellaneous The gun depression the T14 like other American tanks is above average making hilly terrain your best friend. The pilot model was thus sent to the Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland to undergo trials on 18 June 1941, and returned to Montreal in October 1941. The only downside to this machine is the low-ish pen of the 75mm cannon a mere 150mm , but considering the mobility and the fact that it has a good firing arc horizontally and vertically, you can almost always work around that problem.
It can bounce lower tier guns. Later models were turreted Rams with the equipment in place of the main gun. Battle Tiers: 2-4 wide The Locust behaves much like the M3 Stuart, though smaller in profile. Plays more like a flanker than a real heavy, though it definitely has the size profile of a heavy tank. One major downside of the T14 is the low view range at 330 meters which will be an issue if you push out on your own and cannot spot what is shooting at you.
It is faster than the A20 70 kph, almost as fast as the T2 light , has better armor, but has the derp gun of the T46 which is tier 3 A32 is tier 4. Any general advice to playing these tanks? Huge World of Tanks fan and by far, the game I've played for the longest time. A solid tier 2 from what I can gather. It would retain the standard M3 power train and gear, but the hull and turret would be an entirely Canadian design. The only premium tank i got worth of this name is T34 that's the only other premium i bought actually , so i strongly suggest to spare that cash and add some more money for a worthwhile premium tank or just use it differently. In the end I give the T14 a 3.
Its also a bit slower than some of the other tier 5 mediums, so flanking isn't particularly a strength either. In early 1941 the Canadian Interdepartmental Tank Committee adopted a compromise: to develop a superior design locally but still using the M3 chassis. At the time the decision was reached, only Canadian Pacific Railway's Angus Shops in Montreal had any experience assembling tanks. Current templates, 3-5-7 and 5-10 are very restrictive on what they can do so the solution can be to add more templates and make the matchmaker less restrictive.

Adding a 975-C4 version in the tech tree would make sense as the top engine as it could drop right into the Rams engine bay. Canadian engineers ran into many challenges when developing the tank as Canada had never produced a tank before. The two slow tanks can't really flank or circle tanks that they encounter, whereas the ram can.
As stated above; premium vehicles come in a variety of forms, and there are a few limitations on what they can be. Due to standardization on the American for frontline units, it was used exclusively for training purposes and was never used in combat as a gun tank. Even just switching the first 2 is loads better. I know some people make the case for the Panther M10 and I may return to that when I get back in the mood to drive high tier mediums again. Just a fun game with a little favourite. With these new experimental guns, the tank is certainly more than able to punch above its weight with higher tiers. The tier 5 American premium heavy tank T14 has been out for quite some time now and you see them here and there.
Admittedly if it was faster it would be a lot more serviceable in tier 7 matches as it could scout and play a flanker role a lot more reliably. This, combined with increased armor and more health, leads to greater survivability than the M4 Sherman. Bringing in more templates to the overall formula might actually be a positive change, but will it be a final solution? Intelligent systems are s mudt these days. The engine is extremely underpowered and the top speed is very low. The idea for producing cruiser tanks in Canada first arose on 15 July 1940 during a conversation between Maj. This can be compensated for somewhat by using premium shells, but whether it's worth it or not is up to you.
Stat wise it is a jack of all trades tank that proves to be valuable in just about every situation but does not excel at any specific area. The first 300 tanks were to be identical to the vehicles being produced by the American Locomotive Company, while modifications were to be implemented from late 1941 onward.
