Hello everybody.

Even after all those buffs I still wouldn't recommend to buy this premium tank (especially if it is the 1st one). There is a lot of reasons for this kind of opinion, and maybe some of you won't agree, but here is what I don't like:

  1. Lack of acceleration - T-54 mod 1 is too slow to be a medium tank (compared to other russian medium tanks, especially with T-44 which has 6 hp/t more) both in top speed and acceleration.
  2. Penetration - While some medium tanks have penetration of 200-230 mm, T-54 mod 1 has only 190 mm which is still no enough (however I wouldn't complain about that if T-54 mod 1 was a mobile tank).
  3. Armor - Armor is a joke versus tier 9 & 10. Numerous of time I got shot through the gun mantlet which should be the toughest part of turret.


If you ask me, I would rather have more mobile tank (such as T-44) then 30 mm thicker front plate because with current match making and gold spammers your armor means nothing. Everybody (talking about tier 6-7 tanks) who can't penetrate you with the first shoot will penetrate you with the second (premium round). If you go on tanks.gg and compere T-54 mod 1 and T-44 those results you will get:




From this comparison you can see that T-44 is waaay better then T-54 mod 1, almost in every aspect. So way we can't get T-54 mod 1 similar to T-44?!

did any of you T54 mod1 players noticed less money income after fight?

It used to be great money maker (even if using gold), but last few days I'm not earning enough, or even losing depending of shell usage.

It varies from fight to fight and with my performance, but overall impression is as I said, it is not any more money maker :(

175 pen is an accident . do not buy this tank , only wasting money :)



The accuracy is poor, targeting too long, slow, and armor is weak because of all let you hit gold. t10 is not this machine rather than as something to do. it is a very mediocre tank


I agree - this tank was my favorit when it first came out. Only a few other tank in its own tier could pen the angled 120mm hull. BUT these days, after Skorpion G, buffed british tanks, buffed t-44, buffed type 59, FCM 50t and many more WILL just obliterate the t54 mod. 1 - AND its a shame - its a nice all rounder, simply loved to play it back then.


Come to think of it! its my own stupidity to buy a primium tank. They are always good in the beginning, but WG wants my money, so following prems are of cause better.


To become a nice tank again it needs a bigger gun and a bit more reverse speed to get out of harms way.



PS. Thx to all you guyz contributing to this forum, i have learned alot here.


EDIT: Took it for a couple of games: If your opponent is new, he migth bounce your hull. BUT all experienced players will just shoot your turret and its like butter. Just had a game vs. AMX 50 100 and he penned me 5 times in a row - NO BOUNCES!

Had to fire some gold rounds and they feel pretty good (maybe they shoul be standard ammo).

Well yeah, they realised the turret was too good so there was a silent nerf to it, plus when you're comparing a prem vs a regular tank, the regular tank should be better - because then why play the t44 at all?

Update: just played 25 games in the past week in this, 16 times were t10s, 8 times were t9s.


Some tanks have pref mm, then there' this.
