It's really, really bad SPG. Especially for pro players because it doesn't have HEAT. I tried premium APCR ammo a bit. The result? Hit on enemy Sexton: zero dmg. Then hit on a side of t5 medium tank: zero dmg. Then hit from the front (somewhere) on enemy light tank: zero damage. 3 attempts with APCR, 3 hits, no damage, just flash.
There are tier II SPGs that will perform much better than this one.
I hope it gets some kind of buff. It's a low tier tank, so it's not that spectacular when it comes to credits of crew training. It should at least be fun to play. In several battles I played with Sexton on Test server, it is not. Actually, I felt completely useless. And I thought I can bounce at least one shell with this frontal armor but it never happened.
This is just one of those completely useless Premium tanks.

It doesn't cover the entire map but it's better than the stock M37 gun.
You reload in 6 sec and can carry 114 shells, fire away, aiming is secondary.

You can score a direct hit on a T3 light, and just knock off a few hit points. It's accuracy sems good, but with a 100% crew I am landing no more than about 10% of shots on target on a fully closed reticle. The rest spray around the outside of the circle. It has no splash, so you have to hit direct to do anything. It is slow, cannot fire across the map and has a very low muzzle velocity so good luck hitting a moving target (and all you will be shooting is low tier lights - you can't damage heavies anyway).#
All it has is a reasonably wide firing arc. I'l be passing on this one.

Did you even play it?
What does well-rounded mean, that's it's equally bad in everything compared to even tier2 SPGs?
And why would you use this tier III artillery for crew training when you can use tier V UK artillery when it comes and train 3x faster? Unless you only plan to play UK SPG's from now on, it just doesn't make sense.
I don't mind if other people play useless tanks ingame, it's easier to win for pro players. But in the forum I feel I should warn others not to waste their money and time on completely useless tanks.

What's a support arty? An arti that supports other arties?
The aiming is not accurate so it doesn't matter that it's a small bit faster, and damage is at least 4x lower than you can get with most other t3 or t2 SPG's. I am not even exaggerating. Every pro player will be able to use premium shells on t2 t3 artillery, but this SPG is useless with premium shells.
If I saw correctly, this SPG has privileged MM (t5 max, but could be just my "luck") which is supposed to compensate for worse stats, but many of the tanks it will thus meet are too small, and move too fast, for this SPG to hit them (because although you aim fast, aiming circle is not small). And those it can hit easily (big targets such as KV) are not going to be scratched.
I will test it more but that's how I see it right now.

anyway, reload time is nice, aim time seems good, splash is bad, as is all T3's though. i tested mid range shots on an open patch with gun decreasing to 0 dispersion + 3 secs for good measure (for server reticle to zero in too) and accuracy and shot grouping is nice, but not great considering splash. this means you can expect a few missed shots on those tiny low tier tanks. have'nt tried it with gold, IMHO if you need gold in T3 arty, just give up the game now.
