World of Tanks T110E5 - 8 Kills 9K Damage
Medals received: Radley-Walters' Medal, Steel Wall, High Caliber, Top Gun
The T110E5 is an American tier 10 heavy tank.
Developed from 1952 as a heavy tank with more powerful armament, compared to the T-43 (M103). Restrictions were placed on the vehicle sizing as the tank was supposed to pass through the narrow tunnels of the Bernese Alps. Several designs were considered, but the project was canceled. No vehicles were ever manufactured.
Simply called the "E5", It replaced the T30 as the American tier X heavy tank in patch 0.7.2. This tank has high penetration and relatively quick reload in exchange for a lower alpha damage compared to many traditional heavy tanks. The T110E5 is a relatively quick heavy with good gun handling characteristics, and since patch 0.9.10 has had excellent armor values, allowing it to force other tanks to react to its actions when driven well. The T110E5 is something of a blend of heavy and medium characteristics, allowing it to fill almost any role on the battlefield and perform well, but at the same time making it less specialized for specific roles compared to many other tier X tanks.
The T110E5 retains the 'eggshell' style of front hull armor layout from the M103 and has greater protection in the areas of high thickness both in the hull and the turret. However, there is little increase in effective protection in the previously thin areas such as the lower plate. The T110E5 also has a prominent commander's cupola that invites shells from opposing players. However, such an obvious target can be a boon as much as a liability in the hands of a player familiar with baiting and misdirecting cupola shots from opponents; the cupola is more heavily armored than most US cupolas and can surprise many an opponent looking for a quick shot. Only very high penetrating shellswill be able to go through the cupola since the armor buff of patch 0.9.10.
Sadly, in patch 0.9.17.1 the E5's cupola was nerfed, making it a new weakspot for the E5.
The T110E5 marks the end of its American heavy line.
