I got some gold and I want to buy a premium tank of a tier V, I dont want any T14 or churchill because Im not a fan of heavys I like playing fast meds or tds, is the tank worth the 1500 gold? I need a tank for moneymaking purpose I dont want any m4 shermans or KVs. How much will it earn without premium and with premium, and also is it better to get more gold and buy the dicker max, and the t25 too?

The T-25 is really nice, its gun is only slighty worse then the L70 on the panzer IV. Its traverse is kind of slow and its turret traverse is even slower. but it has a pretty high acceleration even in reverse and a topspeed near 60.
Dont get hit in the sides or rear though, this thing is a german tank and tends to get ammo racked, set ablaze or gets its engine destroyed pretty quickly when flanked.
The Dicker max is a great tank, drives quite similar to the Marder but its a little bit more sluggish and extremely vulnerable, so you need to play stealthy and camp alot. Since you prefer to be fast and all medium like i would go for the T-25.

Never had been set on fire, although ammorack tends to suicide in bad situations(Not often, but in bad situations.) Either way, it has excellent RoF, HP, accuracy, but needs GLD to have a good aim time. The speed is a great addition, either way, you won't regret buying it.

I got theT-25 when it was on discount last weekend and I really love that Skoda "Panther". The gun is extremely good for tier 5 and with that rapid fire (4,6 sec reload with an 80% gunner) mode it really tends to annoy any tank. The only things you should avoid are zero range engagements (especially with fast and agile tanks) as the traverse (tracks and turret) is way to slow for such things and you'll get blown up very fast.

Awesome premium tank, bought it while it was for 750 gold and I dont regret it. Got 100% panther crew and 60% BiA perk.
Fast, good gun, decent credit earning (on premium acc), bah even mm is pretty good. Often I land up in max tier VI fights (which are ok, since you can penetrate every tier 6 tank).

As it was said: good, fast gun, nice acceleration (but it turns like train), decent armour, and satisfaing credit making ability. Also 610 HP is something worth mentionig. I don't regret buying it. If it only wasn't so ugly...

BiA doesn't do anything at all until you have 100% on every crew member.

Excellent tank, one of the ones I've played with the most.

Seems to get less slack cut for it in the new matchmaker, though.

Yes it is. A bit hard to play, since the aiming time after stopping is quite long. Slow Turret moving, not very agile, slow acceleration at the beginning (catches faster speed as u go), an neraly impossible to hit anything while moving above 15km/h.
But: Good accuracy, good penetration (for a tier V premium without goldammo), very fast and the most impoertant thing in the whole game: superior gund depression



My stats:

I like it a lot.

I had a lot of low-mid tier premium tanks. Up to Tier V this is the best one, RAM II is probably the worst.

Strange tank. Poor armor but good HP, good topspeed but bad traverse making it unsuitable for orbiting. Good gun but again, the slow traverse is weird for a fast tank.

I´d guess an GLD and maybe Coated optics (Rammer doesn´t make much sense with an reload time of about 4 sec.).

Rammer makes a world of sense. Faster shooting is always good, especially a semi-sniper like this one.

Decent armour ??  :arta:  it have 0 armor ! its armor is useless. It only presents good...these extra slopes.
Even tier III can pen you. Turret is Hell... slow slug....... useless for close combat- i died many times becouse turret 360 turn is like one minute. Its turret have same  speed as KV-2 giant turret.
  In tier 5 battles 2x KV1 shot and you can be cocked to death. This tank eats insane damage, almost -0,0 bounces.  

I have other premium-- tier 5 Churchill. Its  better. 350 battles - 550 frags.

On Skoda some matches im killed one shot , in tier 7 especially. This tank drive faster to action than half of others  and also die 1, so dont rush, dont get involwed in 1 line combat- or you will be blasted instantly, even by low tiers.

I. Its only good at sniping from cover. On close engagements you must rely on your speed tricks- shoot enemy and dont get shooted ... not an easy task .

Churchill in armor is like terminator compared to T25.  Tier 4 can shoot Church crocodile and and it will bounce off half shots .

T25 ?? Man, it eats every shot for maximum damage. Im suprised how quickly 610 hp can fly away to scrapyard.

I have now 80% crew , we will see later how it would preform. Now its quite bad. Forget about close ranges fights like in Churchill - 2,3,4 enemies at once. Even one tier 4 can bring death to you.

Gun is good, but not too good, not a sniper. Penetration is better than in Churchill, damage also little better, but rate of fire 2x slower. Of course if youre lucky this gun can kill quite effective KV1. but if KV1 does not see you, becouse hes gun make you giant holes.

I have T25 on another account. Glad for sure that bued for primary account Churchill. It earns sacks of money every match almost money and no frustration.  Skoda- to ern money must be driven by luck,smart and with BIG care . Its a medium with bad traverse speed , awfull turret traverse-- forget about any flanking enemy in 1 on 1 dogfight .
We will see what will change if crew will be 100 and i add rammer. Now it have 80% + Ventilation.

If you guys want easy mode tough money maker-- get Churchill. It fights only tier 5 and 6. Only have 28 battles and 20 frags in Skoda, still i give it a chance and try to play careful now . But i remember, spectacular stats on Churchill (giant frags and winning matches) started form 1 game.

But gameplay in T25 isnt easy thing, thats for sure. Mabe this tank need some special treating. Its a semi sniper sneaker ?  but 0,41 is not a snipe.
no armor fact + incredibile sluggishness of turret and bad traverse speed. as soon you start to turn tanks stops acceleration.
gun depresion is one of best in game, reloading speed is also quick -14
1 impression ? quite bad, compared to Churchill. Church instantly make you feel the king of battlefield.
But Skoda can preform well behind enemy lines.

From experience with fights against it, it is most efectie in midrange, where front can even bounce a few shots. In close quarters it gets eaten up in no time. Nonetheless, my best credit games were the ones that I could fight at midrange.
