Great credit earning potential, 178 mm in the upper glacis, excellent position in the match maker... what more could you ask for from this tank?

This is ABSURD !!  I meet 9tier every second game and not 2 or 3 but 5,6 vehicles. "Penetration of 170 mm is just more than you need when engaging your enemies". This must write incompetent idiot without pardon !!!

Edit: Try penetrate E-75, M103, Jagdtiger, or another from front or flank him with 5km/h.

ditto @ sarxify nearly every game I get tier 9s and I always see E50s at the moment and they just rip me a new one... the tank is under performing, yes the frontal armor can be nice but everyone now knows the weak spots and the tank can't stand up or get out the way anymore... it's becoming the joke tank in most battles, it can't pen effectively, and can't retreat to safety without getting a good beating,

if you are going to leave the tank as it is pen and damage wise, and not improving it's acceleration at least reduce it's MM by 1..

the Super Pershing is much like the Churchill now, it's a nice tank but it's getting properly screwed by the MM to a point it's not effective anymore.

This thing goes uphill slower then T34! I know, I was playing in platoon with it today. And they call this thing "med"! Soeone in WG was smoking really bad stuff.

nice video, but i never got over 90k silver with premium account :) i do like the tank tho, it´s speed is what bugs me most since i rarely go above 25Km/h and sometimes 38km/h if the slope is big enough to get to max speed.
yes i play this tank as a heavy and in city maps were speed is not an issue this tank performs great.

it takes sometime to adjust, i play the M26 and the Patton both as small heavie tanks too, M26 carefull in the start and when needed i can charge and go around wounded tanks to finnish.

so appart from the speed this tanks i awesome :)

Appart from being extremely slow and all that... it's not really well armored either. Those spots on the front side of the turret are not so easy to hit... but the turret roof is... extremely easy.

"What more could you ask for"

Howw about uhhhh:
- A decent gun
- Non-abysmal speed
- Armor that isn't filled with weakspot from the front

I'm not sure if WG is actually trying to troll people into buying this PoS or just trying to make a comedy post.

Easily the worst tier 8 tank in game. When i see one i just laugh and pity how fast he will die by my hands (or of my teammates).

You can penetrate the Jadgtiger even with a tier 6,it has a buggy cheese armor.
Anyway this really look like a propaganda video...anyway nice retoric Community,it wouldn't convince a potato.

My experience with SuperPershing (61 games as of now)

Winrate; 52%
efficiency rating; 2013
avg XP; 724

Still learning with this very peculiar gameplay.
Credit earnings; 20k-120K. After repairs/ammo I tend to have 40-60k net earnings.

SuperPershing is superperfect for training your USA med crews.
I can recommend buying it even if i suspect the Type 59 is a better credit earner in itself.
