[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

AnnoA86_T23E3.png

7000

The T23E3 is an American tier 7 premium medium tank.

Development started in April 1943. The prototype was manufactured in August 1944. Unlike its predecessor T23, this variant featured a torsion-bar suspension. The vehicle never entered mass production nor saw service.

The T23E3 was first awarded to the top 6000 players during the "World on Fire" mini-campaign. Due to this, it is not visible in the tech tree nor in the in-game store and it makes this tank quite a mysterious machine.

Like most American medium tanks, it is a jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none. However, this tank is also very different in that it has a very rapid fire, low damage and low penetration gun that forces its users into a very different style of play than what is the norm for American medium tanks. Its armour is very similar to most other American medium tanks: it can not be relied upon. Furthermore it features that excellent gun depression American tankers are accustomed to and tops it off with very decent soft statistics and mobility.

Patch 9.12 saw this tank buffed with an increased penetration of both standard and Premium shells: from 128 to 149mm, and 177 to 190mm respectively.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Excellent gun depression
  • High rate of fire
  • Very fast reverse speed, allowing for a speedy reverse escape.
  • Good accuracy, aim time and gun dispersion while moving and turning turret
  • Preferential matchmaking (tier 8 max, no tier 9 battles)


Cons:


  • Turret armor and mantlet do not overlap significantly
  • Rather sluggish in turning and accelerating making it hard to maneuver cross-country.
  • Poor alpha damage


Performance

This tanks performs very similarly to a T20 armed with the stock 76mm M1A1 gun, with a few extra albeit negligible features. In fact, it was designed as a successor to the T20 in real history so it is only logical that they will share characteristics. In its playstyle, it is very similar to the Comet in that it also relies greatly upon gun depression, rate of fire and flanking. It is worth noting that the T23E3 has one of the highest DPM's in tier 7 medium tanks and is only outclassed by the Comet. The T20 is quite a bother to drive with the stock 76mm but this issue is not present in the T23E3 as its matchmaking is limited to tier 8 and below. In common with the T20, it is quite sluggish while driving and requires some getting used to. On the move, it fires very accurately, hitting most of its shots at medium range. Overall, this tank is hard to master and difficult to drive, but in the hands of an experienced driver, it will wreak havoc.

A sidenote is that the T23 turret is virtually identical to the upgraded turret of the M4 Sherman and the M4A3E8 Sherman. This is because the T23's turret was used when it was desirable for Shermans to be equipped with the 76mm M1A1 and the 76mm M1A2, since both tanks share the same turret ring.

Historical Info

Like the T20 and T22, T23s with the 75 mm automatic gun and 3 inch gun were planned but never constructed. The T23 was actually the first of the T20 series prototypes completed and was found to be highly manoeuvrable. The Design was classified "limited procurement" in May 1943 and 250 T23s were ordered, although the design was never standardized or issued to front line units. Production models featured the T80 turret that would later be used in modified form on the up-gunned M4 variants. The T23 was not adopted for service partly because of its untried transmission system and partly because the design had poor weight distribution and excessive ground pressure. In an attempt to rectify this, two further variants were ordered, the T23E3 with torsion bar suspension and the T23E4 with horizontal volute suspension. The T23E4 was cancelled before the design was completed, but the T23E3 prototype was completed and the Torsion bar suspension was found to have reduced the ground pressure by 20% compared to the T23.
