type 59:
I.mk.2 stab- a must for mediums tanks since they roll fast and they need accuracy on the move.
II.rammer- when you put  a rammer you maximize your Dps allowing you to fire more quickly and therefore you inflict more damage
III. vent- improves your your basic skills for every crew man. thus' increases your tanks preformance in every aspect by a bit.

skills- didnt get my crew to 100% yet.

so far so good havent had an ammo rack issue yet, but thats why i carry a small reapair kit, for those issues.

it might be because i always angle my tanks when i fight making it harder to pentrate my armor' and with the type 59 this technique is helpful.

Your KV5 might benefit alot from Controlled Impact, I've seen those thing take off alot of HP in ram attacks.



Type 59, I went Vents, Rammer and will go Vert Stabalisers too (toolbox atm), though a wet ammo rack is useful for the occasions you get racked.

Skills,   I fancy off-road driving on the driver as I want to get to where i need asap, but smooth ride would be good also. Though preventative maintenance would help with the engine fires.

commander - recon for me, i like to see as far as possible so I dont get myself into a pickle.

loader - safe stowage, reduce those ammo racks

radio operator - situation awareness, as i said i like to see as much around me as possible.

before all those i'll prob have my first skill as repair on the crew with the commander on mentor.

KV5

Vents / Rammer / MK Stab (Used before repair, binoculars, camo, splash liner ... but MK seems better)

Bia, Eagle Eye
Bia, Dead Eye
Bia, Clutch Breaking
Bia, Situational Awarness
Bia, Repair or Camo or Ammo Rack
Bia, Repair or Camo or Ammo Rack

I'm thinking to change eagle eye and dead eye, what do you think about that ?
And what about the last 2 skills what to use from those 3 ?

Thanks

I have played more than 1000 Type battles, and trust me, you DO need a wet ammorack, or you will be blown up over and over again, even by tier 5 vehicles (happened to me). I even destroyed my vents to get a WAR.

Stab and Rammer are certainly a must. I still doubt between Vent and GLD (that's why i run with a empty slot, where I usually carry a toolbox).  Wet ammo, i don't think is so important, in my short live with T-59 (16 games) I don't remember being amoracked (though I've been set on fire several times).

EDIT: I wrote at same time as kastrator. Coming from an experienced type player I'll reconsider wet ammo, which probably means I will run with an empty slot for a long time till a gain enough evidence.

Cool i see many player who dont know how to equip an Awesome Tank like the Type 59. U NEED an wet-ammorack.
The Type 59 is verry fragile when you dont use it. Last weekend i killed an enemy Typ 59 in my own with 2 shots. 2 Shots hits the Ammorack the first Damaged it the secound finished the Tank. After that i was blamed as Cheater as ofter :| how ever your Equipment should be like this:

Wet-Ammorack
Stabilisator
Rammer

As Skills on your Crew:

Repair
Brother in Arms
the 3rd should be specific by every crew member
Comander - Eagle Eye
Gunner- Sniper
Driver - "Drive like on rails"
Reload Gunner - Adrenaline

When you dont belive me you should look my statisic i played 906 games with it. :)

I'll hope i clould help

Regards,

t59 doesnt need vstab in my opinion.enhanced gun lying device would be smarter choice.the more aim time the gun has,the more you expose yourself to enemy.this tank doesnt have limited  rounds (34),spent wisely
t59 classified as medium tank but dont play like a medium you'll die quick

My IS7 Crew currently sits in my KV-5. And with it iv gone,

Commander : BIA - Six Sence - Repairs

Driver : BIA - Snap Shot - Repairs

Gunner : BIA - Clutch Braking - Repairs

Radio Operator : BIA - Situational Awearness - Repairs

Loader : BIA - Safe Stowage - Repairs

Loader : BIA - Adrenaline Rush - Repairs

KV-5 suffers with poor turning so clutch breaking is a must for both IS7 and KV-5 in my own eyes. And as a tank thats on point alot, six sence can be handy.

With all my tanks I start up on repairs, once iv got my crew onto their 2nd skill at around 250% I respec them with the silver charge for 90% skill and then either BIA all my crew or go with the specialied skills.
while leveling the 2nd skill on repairs to get the most out of my tank at any given stage of crew development. I repeat this also when my crew gets to 325% skill and then have BIA and special skills while leveling repairs again.

Type 59

Coated optics
Rammer
Vert Stab

Why did I get neg rep for this? If you do not agree that is fine but just neg repping is counter productive.
