World of Tanks || Super Conqueror Review

History

A variant of the Conqueror heavy tank with the addition of extra armour protection. Manufactured during the first half of the 50s and used for testing the Dart and Malkara guided anti-tank missiles. During testing, the vehicle played the role of a heavy tank that could potentially appear in the future. It never saw mass production.

Top 3 Quirks

  • It has HESH rounds which are effectively High-Explosive rounds, but with a huge amount of Penetration (for an HE round anyway)
  • The cannon has best in class accuracy and gun handling
  • Especially at range, this tank has superior armour – its a great long range sniper

Bottom 3 Quirks

  • Poor mobility in general, with a low top-speed
  • The FV215b it is replacing has significantly better overall gun-handling and DPM
  • High chance of being set on fire (20%) when the engine is hit

BrandScore

DPM – The DPM of this tank is 2,580.65 giving it a 7/10

Penetration – The Penetration of this tank is 259 giving it a 7/10

Gun Handling – The Shown Dispersion Value of this tank is 0.33 giving it a 3/5, while the Hidden Dispersion Value average of this tank is 0.134 giving it a 4/5

Aiming Time – The aiming time of this tank is 2 seconds giving it a 8/10

Gun Vertical Movement – The Gun Depression of the tank is 7 degrees giving it a 3/5, while the gun elevation is 15 degrees giving it a 2/5

Survivability – this thing has greatly upgraded armour, with its frontal turret armour being almost impenetrable with only some regions able to be over-matched. Meanwhile it upper-frontal hull will block most (non-premium) shells fired upon in, but the lower frontal plate will be easily penetrated by most tanks it comes across. As an added bonus, because the tank has spaced armour, it is very good at ensuring high penetration HEAT rounds will not be able to go through it as they will be slowed significantly before it can hit the solid armour behind it. Thus, I’m giving this tank and 8/10.

Mobility – The power-to-weight ratio of this tank is 12.34 (which is oddly cool) giving this tank a 2/5, while the average traverse speed of this tank is 29 giving this tank a 2/5

View Range – The View Range of this tank is 400 meters giving this tank a 9/10

The Concealment Whilst Stationary (Camouflage) – The camouflage value of this tank whilst not moving or firing the gun is 4.62% giving it a 2/10

Value – I believe this tank is a valuable tank. It feels like a nice little upgrade over the Conquerer, which is already arguably one of the best tier 9 heavy tanks in the game – especially with its latest turret upgrade! However, I still think there are tanks which are just objectively better than this tank such as the Maus. As such, I’m giving this tank a 8/10

Thus, the total BrandScore for this tank is 65/100

Final Thoughts

So should you grind for this tank? I think if you want a tank that is an all-rounder, and great for random battles, then for sure this is your tank. Even in clan wars, with its laser like gun handling you will have no trouble at all in being able to snipe the enemy tanks whilst also have very suitable armour especially at range. So yes, for sure!
