Yesterday I was playing my T-34 on Swamp(?), and there was one of these guys in the middle, while I was hiding in the west between the houses. He dropped off radar, and before I knew it he was behind me and blew me up. Holy crapthese things are fast.

OMG the 107mm gun ... It just misses way to much even when aimed for ages. Average damage is pretty good for a t7 medium, but it's very frustrating.

Aim better. I don't think that 77.5% acc is nowhere near bad, considering the average-to-bad accuracy (on paper) of the gun.

Its bad, pretty much all my other recently played mediums have around 80%, hell even my mediums that i havent played for years with no aim buff, shitty dispersion everywhere have around 77% and I don't even give a damn about wasted shots, I destroy buildings when they are in the way, same for walls etc. What hurts even more is the long reload time, also many of the shots that actually hit are damn track shots or bounces from crappy angles thanks to the inaccuracy.

The A-44 doesn't know what it wants to be. It has not enough armor or strong enough gun to be a decent tank destroyer, has not enough gun depression and camo (has pretty much the second worse camo behind the panther from all T7 mediums) to be versatile enough to apply as decent medium.

We saw it you like the tank, you are  entitled  you your opinion, but its just that an opinion.

One thing they could do, to actually make it decent is when they make it similar to the O416. Give it the D10 100m gun from the O416 and make camo slightly better, prepares you for the  play style of the 416 quite good and it would actually be more like a medium.

I never ONCE had the feeling that it has poor camo!

I find i a VERY stealthy bugger.

Unlocked Obj 416 after 126 battles.

2000 wn7 and 3000 wn8
63% w/r
1485 avg dmg
1.9 avg spots

That makes it one of my best tanks. The last few battles were simply epic. Nevertheless I hate this tank and I'm more than happy to have sold it.

Yes the 107mm kill it as a decent medium, as I already mentioned, give it the 100mm, good eough. Trades damage for penetration and better aimtime. Also could use a tad better camo value, it has the second worse value of all T7 meds.

Did you actually run any tests concerning that camo value?

As I said, I find that it has very good camo values...

there are people that test and collect the data:
http://www.wotinfo.n...=7&showLines=30
and the A44 has crap camo.
inb4 b-but m10 has also worse camo..
Its nothing compared to the T34-1, since i drive/drove both first hand I know that the A44 has much worse camo then the T34-1

Well that's really, REALLY weird, since it has such smaller silhouette than the VK3002D or the T20 (how on Earth does THAT one get so high camo values?!)

bought this tank today and my first impression is bad. I lost 6 out of 7 battles in it, simply because everyone penned me. In the time I have to aim I have to take 3 hits from others.
First I tried to take it easy and shoot from a bit of distance, but most shots missed or bounced. Even on a T25/2 upper plate which has bad armor (76mm angled). When I finally hit something, the damage is nice, but I find it very hard to do normal damage in it playing a match so far. A-43 had also bad armor, but I got used to that and played quite like a T-34 which I really enjoyed playing, so this one as well. This gun is one of the worst I ever used in this game. I also faced the problem that my engine got destroyed a few times so far.
Other people who posted something about this tank, said you should not play it as a medium tank. How will you do something usefull for your team when you can't shoot the crap out of any tank at distance and are too vulnerable to play it as a medium normally would?

Pretty alright though today I found out that camo ratings for it are terrible, had to check those after getting spotted in Murovanka forest and it is at Panther level, damn.

Works fine for me... Although the number of times I recently managed to put it to good use has dwindled, I agree it's not the most pleasant tank to play
Here are my best games in it so far:
