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

134000

The Valentine AT is a British tier 4 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, based on the tier 3 Valentine light tank. However, its gun shield is extremely vulnerable to attack since it is only protected by a very thin layer of armour.

Despite its move to Tier 4, the Valentine AT retains both of the powerful guns it had at Tier 3, leaving it on similar footing to its new Tier 4 peers. 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 in two shots when equipped with the huge 3.7-inch howitzer.

The Valentine AT leads to the AT 2, and the Bishop.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good hull armor
  • Superb gun traverse and hull traverse
  • Offers an accurate and fast-firing 6-pdr gun with great penetration
  • Very high DPS when equipped with the 3.7 inch AT Howitzer
  • Wide gun traverse arc


Cons:


  • Open-top hull is extremely vulnerable against SPGs and HE shots
  • Side armour contains ammo rack, like most British TDs
  • Very light armor on the gun shield
  • Low damage for a Tier 4 TD with the 6-pdr gun
  • Tank is extremely slow and will be left behind unless a turbocharger is fitted


Performance

"She may be flawed, but she has teeth." This quote was originally used to describe DS9's Starship Defiant, but it applies equally well to the formidable Valentine AT. The Valentine, on which this tank destroyer is based, is a tier 3 heavy masquerading as a light. As such, its 60mm of frontal armour is capable of deflecting damage, and lower tier vehicles may struggle to penetrate. However, the Valentine AT isn't so difficult to hurt, since its gun shield is wide and only 14 mm thick. A few HE rounds to the gun shield will result in a quick return to the garage. Furthermore, the open-top hull is very vulnerable to enemy SPG fire; getting hit by one will result in heavy damage and crew fatalities. It is possible to be one-shotted.

Speed and mobility aren't the Valentine AT's strong points. The vehicle accelerates slowly and has a modest top speed. However, its hull traverse rate is extremely good, allowing the Valentine AT to defend itself from attack surprisingly well. It is strongly advisable to consider fitting a turbocharger rather than a gun rammer, since the gun reloads very quickly and the extra horsepower will allow you to reposition and keep up with most of the team.

The Valentine AT makes up for its setbacks with great armament selection. It offers a choice between a 6-pdr or 3.7-inch howitzer. The 6-pdr is similar to those found on the Churchill III and Matilda Black Prince tanks, giving a mix of great accuracy, amazing aim time, great penetration, and a decent rate of fire, at the cost of rather low damage for a Tier 4 tank destroyer. This gun makes the tank a great medium ranged shooter.

The 3.7-inch howitzer is very powerful, being a tier V gun, capable of taking out most tier III and IVs with as little as two well-placed shot. While the aiming speed and reload times are relatively slow, with a higher shell drop than its other guns, the damage potential is extremely high. An experienced tanker can compensate these setbacks by aiming ahead and leading for moving distant targets but can be used in a pinch when you're in a tight spot versus a nimble opponent, such as light tanks.


Early Research

  • The WS No. 19 Mk. I radio and GMC 6004 6-71A engine carry over from the Valentine and should be mounted immediately.
  • First, research the Valentine AT Mk. II suspension to allow equipment to be mounted.
  • Next, research the WS No. 19 Mk. II for increased signal range.
  • Finally, research the QF 6-pdr AT Gun Mk. IV and 3.7-inch AT Howitzer, starting with whichever you plan to use.


Suggested Equipment


Camo NetBinocularsGun Laying Drive. Alternate take: Camo netBinocularsTurbocharger. The Valentine AT responds extremely well to the boost in speed and horsepowerallowing you to join the attack or escape danger rather than being left behind or stranded. The Val AT's guns fire so quickly that a GLD is only marginally useful in comparison to the priceless extra mobility. Your choice will depend on how aggressive a player you are.

Historical Info

The Valentine TD was 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.

Historical Accuracy Errata

The following are consensus errors or inconsistencies which have been identified with the configuration of the vehicle in question and conflict with information available on the public record. The causes for these divergences in the game are normally not disclosed and may be rooted in game balance.

The 6-pdr gun was the Valentine AT's only main armament, hence the name Valentine with 6-pounder anti-tank mounting. The 3.7-inch howitzer configuration is fake.
