World of Tanks Tortoise - 6 Kills 10,4K Damage
Medals received: High Caliber, Top Gun
The Tortoise is a British tier 9 tank destroyer.
The development of this assault tank began in Great Britain in 1942. The design was finalized by February 1944, and an order was placed for 25 vehicles. However, by the fall of 1947 only five tanks had been manufactured.
The A39 Tortoise is the heaviest and last of the slow and heavily armored "AT" tank destroyers in the British line. It’s a great leap forward from its predecessor, the AT 15, mainly due to its extremely accurate, fast-firing, and powerful 120mm cannon. and greater protection that even rivaling several tier 10 tanks.
The Tortoise, just likes its name. it is extremely tough. it has a very large hitpoint pool. and very tough overall armor that, combined with the 120mm gun (which had second highest DPM in the game), makes this tank became one of the strongest opponent to face in tier 9 or even tier 10 match. But, also just likes its name. the overall slow speed can make this tank vulnerable from encircling by agile opponents.
Compared to its tier 10 counterpart; The FV217 Badger. It has more raw armor values than the Badger which provides more decent protection from HE shots and SPGs than the Badger, although its speed is fairly slower than its counterpart.
Overall, the Tortoise is one of the only few tier 9 tanks that were regarded as a "Tier 9.5" due to its top stats. with proper use of its rapid-firing gun and well-rounded armor, it can easily prove its worth and striking fear into anyone who dares to oppose it.
The Tortoise leads to the FV217 Badger.
