[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.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:

- Abnormally high HP pool for tier 6 TD (750)

- Great penetration and rate of fire

- Excellent gun handling, has quick aiming time, great gun depression/elevation, as well as 200 degrees of firing arc

- High mobility and quick traverse speed

- Handy crew slots that matched with vehicles from British turreted TD line.

- Low ammunition cost; decent credit earner


Cons:

- Horribly oversized, finding a place to cover or hide can be troublesome

- Very poor armor, can be easily destroyed if not covered

- Has "turret" which can be damaged and/or jammed. also, turret's rear is extremely prone to HE shots and it can be exposed when aiming at another angle

- Poor shell velocity, inaccurate at long range


Performance

Think of this tank as a bigger KanonenJagdpanzer that trades camouflage for gun handling and flexibility. The interesting turret placement allows for some quirky positioning - it is possible to hide the rear of the tank behind cover and only expose the very front of the tank around a corner, although the absurd size of the Excalibur can make this difficult. The lack of armour and low alpha damage of the gun can make this tank tricky to use at close range, so mid to longe range should be what is used. This way the excellent accuracy and aim time of the Excalibur can be taken advantage of, as well as the nice DPM. The HP pool (which is on par with Tier VI mediums) can then be conserved for nearer the end of the game, where your rate of fire can be used to mop up any low health stragglers.

Using the good mobility of this tank to reposition is key, in order to keep the gun firing, as you do not have the alpha damage to take huge chunks of hit points off with one shot. Relocate often, abuse the unusual turret and great gun handling stats and harass the enemy with the great rate of fire - just remember that only your generous health pool will keep you alive, not your armour.
