Oh, look, Russian tier 8 premium is actually one of the better tier 8 tanks.

What a surprise.

Very nice, the page is what the wiki should be for each tank, showing the armour layout and other useful information, both on if you should buy one and how to combat one.

The only concern I had on the test server is it's gun ... 175 pen for a non-limited MM ( against tier 10 tanks ) might be just a tiny bit ... okay , it's nowhere near enough, even gold ammo pen isn't that much ( and people were complaining about the penetration of the STA-2 ) otherwise it looked pretty decent...  I'm still thinking about it ...

But the STA-2 has ridiculous HEAT pen...this doesn't so it doesn't look great against tier 10s
Looks sexy as hell though.

"We removed type59 because it was too popular and too overpower" but don't worry, now we made the same tank but it's russian.

 

Anyway, great article and descritpion, hope you will make other tanks the same way.

Can you stop creating new russian tanks and focus on other nations as well? That would be great.

Well, the type has limited matchmaker, so you statement is only true 2/3rd of the time. :p

In t10 Battles... well... I just cant imagine having fun there with this tank.

It is a nice bully against lowtiers, with fantastic armor for a t8 medium, but against t10 tanks? The armor wont help it much there and the pen is just -_- .

?? it's tier 8.

T44 has 175

T69 has 173

Pershing has 180

T-34-2 has 181

How much do you want more? Premiums are supposed to be slightly worse than normal tanks. 175 is not much, but it's enough. And 235mm penetration for gold shells on a tier8 medium is not enough???? are you kidding?

the only problem what i see on this medium tank its the penetration and the speed. An medium tank cant have the speed of the heavy tank. its the most easy from premium tank by weight and its the slower one. if this problems will be fixet i will consider to buy it, but till then i will say, pass.

Well... on one hand, you could be right.... but on the other hand... couldnt it be, that the listed t8 mediums dont have enough penetration either? ;)

 

 

Although I agree, that 235 gold-pen isnt bad.

The page is really nice looking...that interaction is interesting and you can see many of stats and armor displayed that way...weakspots too :P....i think that this tank is brawler like hell...and 175 pene is probably enough..if you compare it with T-44 for example...it has the same...yes T-44 is probably little faster but has much less armor as this tank....and other thing...T-54 prot has lesser terain ressistence as it seems....with time we will see...i will probably wait for some action or when the tank will come to ingame shot...hopefully it will :P

Yes yes EPIC tank .

1. Paper armor  . Turret same as is4 , roof says hi .

2. Slow 

3. Gun is awful , long aim time , accuracy like kv2 . You can't shot on move because you don't hit anything .

4. Ammo only 34 .

5. Not limited MM . For tier 9 this tank is free frag , for tier 10 its like mc-1 .

 

WG please introduce more pay2lose tanks for easy game on tier 8 lol

I bought this Tank because I wanted something to train my T62 A crew in, but I must say I am very disapointed, this Tank is not worth the price because it gets constantly slaughtered in tier x matches, this Tank needs preferential matchmaking! if it never saw tier x, then it would be barely ok.

and the reload is way to slow, even with gun rammer, needs a buff

Well, you might aswell introduce the Type 59 again because you have already nerfed it down to oblivion, now it's defenitely not Op anymore, the T54 prototype is nowhere near as good as the Type 59 is even the Type isn't exacly a good machine any more, why do you have to make every good Tank unplayable, why not make all the other Tanks better? then  everyone would be happy and no Tanks would be Op

The only Tier VIII premiums I don't have are Type-59, WZ-111, and KV-5.

 

In my opinion, after 30ish games, the T-54 is a good solid all rounder if you play with a bit of care and not just yolobob around expecting the hand of Stalin to guide every shell into something bouncy.


 

It isn't fast, but is mobile enough to relocate if required. The gun is reliable, and long aim time offset by fairly small reticule. The armour is borderline OP against most things you're likely to see in any given random. The camo is very good if you don't fire the gun. The mix of armour and camo means you can usually get some decent assist.


 

People complaining that it is weak should try the STA-2
