Vehicle Overview

The T92 is a very powerful vehicle in its class that you really don’t want to be targeted by on the battlefield. The main reason for this is the fact that this American SPG is equipped with the fearsome 240mm M1 Howitzer, sporting an insane average damage value of 2,250 points per shot. That’s the highest alpha damage in the entire game!

On top of that, HE shells that fit this colossal cannon contain a massive payload of explosives, which generates an exceptionally wide blast radius upon impact. This means that your projectiles will not only cause damage to the target itself but they may also deal “splash damage” to vehicles in a relatively wide area around the point of impact.

This immense destructive power is counterbalanced, primarily, by the horrible reload time, which is long even by Tier X standards. On top of that, the gun itself isn’t particularly accurate and, as a result, placing the shell where you want to can prove to be quite a difficult task.

Also, it is worth mentioning at this point that the T92 does not have any gun depression and considering it has only 500 hit points, defending yourself in close quarters is pretty much impossible – especially when it’s low-profile light tanks that are making a run for you.

While in battle, first and foremost, consider your reload time: knowing that it takes ages to feed your gun a shell, you really need to make every shot count. This means that you should concentrate primarily on the easiest targets, such as huge heavy tanks, stationary and/or immobilised vehicles, and slow tank destroyers. However, the absolute priority targets for you are tight groups of enemy vehicles.

Remembering your extraordinary splash radius, in certain situations, aim for the central vehicle (or even just the middle of a group) and, if the shell lands correctly, you will have the chance to badly damage or even destroy multiple tanks with a single shot! Also, if there are no better targets available, don’t hesitate to aim at the side of a rock, building or other object that an enemy vehicle has taken cover behind – if they’re close to the edge, the splash will still reach them causing considerable damage.

If possible, aim at the side closer to the enemy tank’s rear. This way you will have the chance to catch the engine compartment in the blast, igniting a fire and causing additional damage as a result.

Last but not least, try to relocate after each shot. Even though your camouflage value is quite good for a vehicle of this size, remember that shooting temporarily nullifies it and can reveal your position. Also, if there are multiple SPGs on the enemy team, you can rest assured that at least one will try to counter you. You have have some time to kill before you can shoot again anyway, so you might as well move. Besides, “better safe than sorry,” right?

 

Tank Tip: In order to improve your horrendous reload time, consider taking a Case of Cola with you into battle. This consumable will boost the crew's general performance by 10%, which also includes speeding up shell replacement. However, please bear in mind that this is a premium consumable, which, depending on your chosen option, will cost you either 50 or 20,000 to restock after each battle. If you’re short on resources, using these consumables can turn out to be a straight path to bankruptcy. 

 

In order to maximise your performance on the battlefield, we suggest installing the following equipment:
Enhanced Gun Laying Drive Large-Caliber Artillery Shell Rammer Camouflage Net

 

 

In addition, your crew members should learn the following skills and perks:
Commander
Gunner
Driver
Radio Operator
1st Loader
2nd Loader

As always, please consider the setup for both the equipment and crew skills as suggestions. Feel free to experiment on your own and choose what you feel works best for you.

 

Roll out, Commanders!
