The Ro-Go is an excellently protected vehicle for 1.3. Featuring armour thick enough to stop 12.7 mm machine-gun fire from all angles (except the roof), and even anti-tank guns if angled properly. The placement of modules deep down inside the hull, where most 1.3 players would never think of shooting, makes the chance that the ammo, engine, transmission and fuel tanks get hit rather low. Even the crew inside the tank are pretty well protected by the tank's armour, and if everything fails you still have the lone machine gunner in the back turret, which means that a lot of the time you will be able to make a partial recovery from getting shredded to pieces by the waves of Pz.IIs and M2A4s.

The Ro-go, like most landships, is the perfect vehicle to lead an assault. The Ro-go's relatively thick armour and impressive firepower mean that the Ro-go can deal a lot of punishment to the enemy. As well, if being the spearhead of an assault isn't your style, you can always use that sweet 200 m/s to annoy enemies who think that they are safe behind buildings, walls, rocks and even hills.

Description

GarageImage Ro-Go.jpg


The Type 95 Ro-Go is a premium rank I Japanese heavy tank with a battle rating of 1.3 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.67 "Assault".

General info

Survivability and armour

The Ro-Go is an excellently protected vehicle for 1.3. Featuring armour thick enough to stop 12.7 mm machine-gun fire from all angles (except the roof), and even anti-tank guns if angled properly. The placement of modules deep down inside the hull, where most 1.3 players would never think of shooting, makes the chance that the ammo, engine, transmission and fuel tanks get hit rather low. Even the crew inside the tank are pretty well protected by the tank's armour, and if everything fails you still have the lone machine gunner in the back turret, which means that a lot of the time you will be able to make a partial recovery from getting shredded to pieces by the waves of Pz.IIs and M2A4s.

Usage in battles

The Ro-Go, like most landships, is the perfect vehicle to lead an assault. The Ro-Go's relatively thick armour and impressive firepower mean that it can deal a lot of punishment to the enemy. As well, if being the spearhead of an assault isn't your style, you can always use that sweet 200 m/s to annoy enemies who think that they are safe behind buildings, walls, rocks and even hills.

III Filters Crew Replenishment Elevation Mechanism
IV Transmission Engine
  • As a premium vehicle the Ro-Go comes with all modifications unlocked on purchase

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Main gun with 70 mm HEAT and the secondary with 37 mm APHE are a deadly combination
  • 70 mm's HEAT velocity of 200 m/s (one of the slowest in the game) means that it can shoot enemies behind cover
  • Great gun depression and good elevation
  • Six crew vehicle
  • The secondary frontal turret can act as a shield to absorb some hits
  • Has relatively thick armour enough to stop heavy machine gun fire, and even some anti-tank weapons
  • Good manoeuvrability for a heavy tank
  • 70 mm HEAT shells excel in both penetration and damage
  • Modules are very well hidden in the vehicle

Cons:

  • Slow turret traverse makes the Ro-Go easy to flank
  • Features only a single machine gun in a rear turret
  • Two massively different trajectories for the main guns
  • Back turret ammo runs out very quickly
  • Very slow
  • Penetration with standard APHE for both guns is lacking
  • Low velocity HEAT shell can be difficult to aim

History

After World War I, the Imperial Japanese Army experimented with some possibility of multi-turreted tanks design based French Renault FT light tank. The development of the Type 95 Ro-Go heavy tank is based on the older version of the tank, the Type 91 heavy tank, which featured only a single 57 mm gun and two turrets, which both armed with a 6.5 mm machine guns. The tank had a maximum armour plate thickness of 17 mm. Although the design was not successful and soon cancelled, this project became the stepping stone to the Type 95 Ro-Go tank.

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
