Top of the Tree Halftime: Centurion AX Line

Commanders!

Now that half of May is over, let's check the mid-tier vehicles featured in this month's Top of the Tree line. They are particularly interesting, as they are quite different from other medium tanks.

All values below correspond to a 100% trained crew.

CRUSADER

Main Characteristics:

  • Hit Points: 410
  • Top Speed: 44 km/h
  • View Range: 360 m
  • Hull Armour: 40/28/28 mm
  • Turret Armour: 50/23/29 mm
  • DPM: 2,133
  • Dispersion: 0.39 m
  • Damage: 75/75/100 HP
  • Penetration: 110/180/30 mm
  • Reload Time: 2.11 s

Once a Tier V light tank, it is now re-classified as a medium tank. The high rate of fire is its main advantage – catch your enemies off-guard and punish them hard. As usual for British vehicles, it comes with great gun depression angles, allowing you to hide most of your vehicle. A good tank to train hull-down gameplay, as you can't take much punishment in return because of your low armour thickness.

CROMWELL

Main Characteristics:

  • Hit Points: 750
  • Top Speed: 64 km/h
  • View Range: 360 m
  • Hull Armour: 64/42/31mm
  • Turret Armour: 76/63/57 mm
  • DPM: 2,165
  • Dispersion0.36 m
  • Damage: 135/135/175 HP
  • Penetration: 145/202/38 mm
  • Reload Time: 3.74 s

The Cromwell is one of the most popular vehicles in World of Tanks, thanks to its combination of mobility and firepower. This tank is especially flexible, and you can switch flanks in a short time. Flanking and circling enemies should be easy as well, you can fire one shot after the other into their sides. Make sure to be close though, it's not a great sniper tank.

COMET

Main Characteristics:

  • Hit Points1150
  • Top Speed: 51 km/h
  • View Range: 380 m
  • Hull Armour: 76/42/31 mm
  • Turret Armour: 101/63/57 mm
  • DPM: 2,246
  • Dispersion: 0.33 m
  • Damage: 140/140/190 HP
  • Penetration: 148/208/38 mm
  • Reload Time: 3.74 s

If you got used to the Cromwell, the Comet is definitely a change of pace – literally. While it's no longer as fast, you can still reach any position in a reasonable amount of time. The Comet will also introduce you to what awaits in the higher tiers, such as a strong and flat turret. However, it also keeps some traits from its predecessor, such as the quick low-calibre gun. Another good vehicle to train hull-down tactics with.
