An oddball of the Tanki Online world, Dictator is one of the more unique hulls the game has to offer. A medium hull that borders the realm of the heavies, Dictator has high torque, mountains of health, and an unusually tall stature. This vantage point is what makes this hull stand out from others, as a turret mounted on this hull can fire over obstacles that other tanks would deem insurmountable. Couple that with the turret's placement on the rear of the tank, and many advantages for hiding locations and firing positions become readily available. However, unless you're crawling around in a Ping-Pong, a mid- to long-ranged weapon does best on Dictator, as it's the slowest of the medium hulls and has a fairly poor acceleration speed.
Description in Garage
An unforgettable hull adored by seasoned clan players, Dictator inspires fear and commands respect. Its height allows it a higher vantage point from which to fire. On the flip side, this makes it a bigger target. It lacks speed, but has multiple armor plates to make up for it. Works well when outfitted with Railgun.
Table of characteristics
- Protection (hp) — the tank's health. Damage dealt by a turret is subtracted from a tank's protection. Once the protection drops to zero, the tank is destroyed.
- Weight — affects the tank's stability, i.e. impact force of hits, recoil of its own turret, and partly, ability to move other tanks (this parameter does not affect the tank's speed).
- Top speed (m/sec) — maximum speed the tank can reach while moving in a straight line.
- Acceleration (m/sec²) — affects the time it takes a tank to reach its maximum speed, as well as its ability to push other tanks.
- Reverse acceleration (m/sec²) — anti-inertial acceleration that comes into force when a tank is moving in one direction and the player presses the button for moving in the other direction. It is in effect until the speed drops to zero. After that, normal acceleration becomes active again.
- Lateral acceleration (m/sec²) — responsible for damping of lateral speed. The smaller this parameter, the easier it is for the tank to drift. A higher Lateral Acceleration makes it more difficult for the tank to move sideways.
- Turning speed (deg/sec) — the maximum speed at which the tank can turn.
- Turning acceleration (deg/sec²) — affects the time it takes a tank to get to its maximum turning speed.
- Anti-inertial turning acceleration (deg/sec²) — works like reverse acceleration but for left-right turns instead of moving forward/backwards.
