So T1E6 a supercharged T1 which was the free gift tank of 2013 which many regarded as crap thanks to horrible armor and a meh gun. But its actually a very good tier 2 and for being a WG gift tank (pz IID) its extremly good.

My T1E6 :B.

Lets start out with its best atribute the speed well its only 48kmh which is ok, but the hp/ton is an amazing 27,03 and ah decent 42 traverse speed, Now the the terrain ressitance is average except on soft where its somewhere at the bottom barerly beating the Tetrach however this wont often affect its epic acceleration but mostly turning. Thanks to its hp/ton it can climb hills very quikly and most often you are doing about 5-8 kmh below your topspeed at all times.

 

Then we get to what many see as bad the gun, however its not as horrible as it seems. First lets get stats up (100% crew)

I compared it too the Te-Ke as thoose are the only gift tanks with 37mm guns, as you can see the 37mm sucks with one exception. Dpm as T1E6 got 424,6 more dpm than the Te-Ke thats three tier 2 tanks. Reasson why is because its using a very good 37mm autloader with a mag reload of 4.8 secs with 5 shells firing 0,5 secs after each other for 30 dmg thats 30x5 = 150 dmg in 2.5 sec. 

 

In comparison Te-Ke fires one round every 3 sec, yeah if you can get flanking shots up close then you will murder anything and if you miss just wait 5 secs ;D. In my opinion this is the Bat-Chat of tier 2. However the gun is crap at sniping thats to it loussy pen and horrible accuracy (0,51) compared to Te-Ke (0,4) but as you want to be close to the enemy its dosent matter.

 

Armor is crap as average is about 10mm on the front with the strongest part being 33mm (one spot on mantle) and the sides are 6mm so this thing hates any derp or any autocannon as they will pen all day of the week.

 

So whats left to say about it well, it dosent get special mm (dont need it) so you will see tier 3s at certain times. Gun depression is a standard 10 with 15 in elevation and the view range is abysmal 260m (Te-Ke 300,Mk VI C 300 etc) but spotting at low tier is neglected thanks to limited range of autos and <37mm guns.

 

So to summarize

Pros

-Burst is 150 dmg in 2.5 sec

-Excellent Hp/ton at 27,03

-Relativly small

-Tiny turret with good depression

-Short reload of mag

 

Cons

-Horibble armor which will stop nothing

-Bad pen and accuracy

-Below average soft terain ressitance

-No limited mm

 

All in all this is the best of the free tier 2s given out by WG beating Tetrach thanks to its outstanding close range dpm with its great speed. I hope some still use this hidden gem and good luck for anyone who might be interested about it.

Problem with Tetrach is its horrible at firing on move (long aim/slow rof) on the move and sluggish traverse of hull, this combined with its low rof makes it less capable of taking on tanks that severly out dps it. Sure it can pen any T18 from any direction (and H35/38) but I guess thats up to personal taste.

I got it with the British VIC at xmass, bad view range, gun, armour and turning.  Never bothered with it again.
