STORE: The Angry Connor Is Back!
This time we are offering you the chance to acquire a perfect ambusher - the Angry Connor (Archer), a unique Premium Tank Destroyer, with a “lucky” camouflage.
The development of the Archer took place during World War II. There was need of a vehicle that was capable of carrying the powerful 17 pounder AT gun. Many projects were considered but finally the Valentine chassis was chosen. The first prototype was completed in 1943 and that’s when production of the tank started. A total of 665 vehicles were built from 1943 through 1945.
Now, taken straight from history, the vehicle appears in-game – see with your own eyes how it looks and what to expect from it:
The Angry Connor is an unusual vehicle and it plays differently than any other tank in the game. Why? It’s because the gun was mounted rearwards on the chassis. Due to that, the tank drives faster backwards than forwards! Is it a flaw? Not at all! This trait makes the vehicle the perfect ambusher. Simply punish the enemy team with your powerful and accurate 17-pdr cannon from distance, and as soon as you are spotted, reverse safely into cover. Driving faster backwards also comes in handy while escaping – not every tank destroyer can scoot and shoot at its enemies at the same time.
Unfortunately, the armour is quite weak, so do not expect to bounce any shells. Thus, it’s better if you do not get shot at all. However, the Angry Connor is not a front-line tank, but a supporter, where its armour doesn’t matter that much. Just pick a good spot at a distance and snipe, devastating your opponents like there is no tomorrow!
If that sounds like your playstyle, then don’t hesitate – you will love the Angry Connor. The tank will be up for grabs from 11 November at 17:00 CET (UTC+1) to 14 November at 17:00 CET (UTC+1).
