[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.

AnnoGB42_Valentine_AT.png

34000

The Valentine AT is a British tier 3 tank destroyer.

This experimental tank destroyer had the gun mounted in the middle of the hull behind a gun shield. A prototype was built, but work on the vehicle was discontinued when a new tank destroyer was developed, based on the Valentine and mounting the powerful 17-pounder.

The Valentine AT is a tank with good hull armor and offers two different play styles. It has a great gun traverse arc and offers very powerful guns. It can either be a deadly sniper when equipped with the accurate and high-penetrating 6-pdr, or a close combat brawler capable of destroying Tier 4 vehicles with a single shot when equipped with the huge 3.7-inch howitzer. The Valentine AT is much slower and larger than its predecessor but compensates with improved armor.

The Valentine AT leads to the Alecto.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Decent hull armor
  • Offers an accurate and fast-firing 6-pdr gun with great penetration
  • THIS IS HETZER ON TIER 3!(3-inch howitzer deals even more damage!)
  • Wide gun traverse arc
  • Excelent view range.


Cons:


  • Much slower than its predecessor
  • Open-top hull is extremely vulnerable against SPGs
  • Side armour contains ammo rack, like most British TDs


Performance

Despite having 60 mm frontal armor, the Valentine AT isn't difficult to penetrate. Its gun shield is big and only 14 mm thick. Speed and mobility aren't the Valentine AT's strong points either. Furthermore, the open-top hull is very vulnerable to enemy SPG fire; getting hit by one will result in heavy damage and crew fatalities. The Valentine AT makes up for all of its setbacks with its great armament. It offers a choice between a 6-pdr or 3/7-inch gun. The 6-pdr is similar to the 6-pdr found on the Churchill III and Matilda Black Prince. It's accurate, aims quickly, has great penetration, decent damage and a good rate of fire. The 3.7-inch howitzer is very powerful for its tier, capable of taking out tier 4s in a single shot. The aim time on it is relatively fast for a howitzer.


Early Research

  • It is recommended to research the radios at first, in order to have radio contact to support your team.
  • Tracks should be researched to increase load weight.
  • Engines should only be researched now, as even 30 additional horsepower adds little visible difference.
  • The second 6pdr cannon is the most direct path to the Alecto, and provides the same firing rate with much needed penetration.
  • The howitzer provides much less penetration but can, with the extreme increase of damage, repel most tanks with one hit, effective when covering a small alley or path, however, the shot fired from the howitzer curves upwards before making contact.

Historical Info

The Valentine TD is apart of a plan to create a simple tank destroyer. It was to be equipped with a 6pdr gun in its field cartridge on the hull rather than using the turret. The work was discontinued when the Valentine was able to equip a 6pdr in the turret and newer plans were made for a better tank destroyer to be built on the same chassis.
