50TP Prototyp

As the first Polish heavy tank in the game, the 50TP Prototyp is a suitable introduction to the play style of this nation's heavy tank branch. Focusing on sloped armour, good gun depression, and high damage per shot, this vehicle combines the strengths of other nations in one vehicle. But of course, there are downsides to it that you need to pay attention to. 

Gameplay

This Polish heavy tank has its very distinct armour layout and isn't really comparable to any other nation. Frontally, it has an acute and almost impenetrable pike nose. On top of it is the driver's cabin, which is also tough but not invincible. The lower frontal plate is the main weak spot, try and keep it hidden to avoid getting torn apart. Taking a look at the side armour, it's okay for side-scraping but it's easy to overdo it and receive unnecessary damage, so be careful!

To get the best protection, it's best to show your front to the enemy. Angling the 50TP Prototyp will expose the side of the driver's cabin, which is easy to penetrate for every opponent you meet.

Mobility-wise, it's average in terms of top speed but features above-average acceleration. This helps you get to critical positions in time. What makes this tank truly awesome is its 122 mm gun. Featuring high damage per shot and decent penetration, you can be sure that the enemy will think twice before messing with you. The rate of fire is predictably low but the accuracy isn't that bad, considering how hard the gun hits. Use hills and the superb gun depression to show your tough turret and smash your target with the big gun, and you'll have a lot of fun with this Pole.

The 50TP Prototyp can act as a heavy tank when at the top of the list, but when facing too many heavily-armoured opponents it's better to mess with the enemy medium tanks, despite the lower mobility.

Equipment

Recommended Setup

Hover your cursor over the images for more information on each piece of equipment.

Considering the strong 122 mm gun, it's only natural to choose pieces of equipment that are aimed at improving the performance of it. The Tank Gun Rammer makes a big difference because of the high reload time. To make sure that more shots hit your targets, mount a Vertical Stabilizer and an Enhanced Gun Laying Drive.

We always tell you how important Repair is for your vehicle, as destroyed tracks mean you'll be a sitting duck and prone to enemy fire. With the 50TP Prototyp, though, we mean it – have you seen those massive tracks? Make sure you have that skill mastered to be able to keep moving.
