My.com is happy to present the main battle tank – T-80. Constructed in the Soviet Union, this tank earned the reputation as an outstanding combat vehicle and was praised by many experts and tank commanders. Watch the video to find out more about this military machine.
In Armored Warfare the T-80 is a Tier 7 vehicle. The main characteristics of this main battle tank are high alpha damage and high mobility. The T-80 shows its very efficiency in close-quarters combat. The top gun can consistently deal a large amount of damage per shot due to the high penetration, but the lower accuracy, long aim time, and penetration falloff of the ammunition make the T-80 far less effective against targets at longer ranges.
The T-80 has powerful frontal armour on the hull and turret, but weak rear and side armour combined with lower HP value makes this vehicle highly vulnerable to flanking attacks. Therefore, the best tactic when meeting this tank will be going around the flank or to the rear. Those who use T-80 should constantly be covering the rear or use the landscape to protect yourself from vulnerable flanking.
Players will be able to upgrade and modify T-80 in various ways: step-by-step upgrade of guns and ammunition to more powerful ones, installation of additional electronic equipment and external defence systems, as well as more powerful engines. The T-80 can be modified up to the level of T-80U model.
My.com will share more information on tank modifications very soon, so be sure to follow on your favourite social channel and sign up for the beta for your chance to pilot the T-80 main battle tank.
