Just got my T-43 recently and I love this tank. Decent speed, turns on a dime and the 100mm gun is the shit. My only complaint is the engine upgrade is weak.

I liked the KV-13 better, the T-43 seems like a downgrade for now.

i own t-43... and for me is alot beter than t-34 and t-34/85... Alot of fun, all modules with speed loader, wentilation and binocluars.... crew 100% camo and repairs on 70%... i hawe beter win lose ratio... alot of survived batles...

But, alot of times i loose crew, driver guner... and ammo rack... Then tank is uselles... i try to play with 85 and 100mm... but i like more 85...

I will go to t-44 in some time and will sell t-43... But i enjoy more t-43 than tiger... fast, agile, and with 100mm deadly...

Only tank, that is not ms-1 or pz2 that hawe beter win lose ratio is sherman, cuz i geth very balanced games... i am 70% of batles in top 3 tanks... with t-43 i geth batles with maus and is-7... so t-43 there is no good...

But all in all after ms-1 me favorite Rusian tank...

Alot of medals on that tank... Not so many like in t-34, but better win lose ratio and better survival rate...

Aye, it's a rather nice medium tank. The only drawback is the frequent loss of crew members (gunner, loader, commander) when one penetrates through t-43 turret (stupid paper turret, with the curse haunting you in t-44 as well)

In my experience the T-43 is an ammorack floating in fuel on tracks. Before i installed both WAR and the CO2 thingy (which I never ever used in all of the beta and release) I got blown or burnt to pieces every second round.
I think the ammo rack is in the turret as in all the soviet mediums but there is also a engine/fire weakspot on the front hull somewhat close to the red star. Easily hit even with auto-aim.

With both aforementioned modules installed I had a lot of fun rounds, but it still suffers from a heavy chance for engine damage.
It seems like the complete back half of the tank is an engine weakspot with every shot from any angle damages or kills the engine

Conclusion: I like the T20 better.

How does the T43's accuracy feel compared to the T20? I love the accuracy on my T20 (vent/stab/GLD!) but I have not played T43 and wonder how they compare. The two tanks seem pretty similar on paper otherwise, except for the asplody ammo racks and fuel tanks you were talking about.

kv-13 lacks a useful gun, it takes ages to accelerate to top speed...

i´m just grinding to T-43 from KV-13, the weapons that can be mounted on T-43 are much more useful!

Try the 122mm on the KV-13...It owns.

Much worse, I'd prefer the 90mm M3 anytime over the 100mm D10T. Less accuracy and more aiming time, a really bad combination for a fast medium tank.
You are right, both tanks are quiet similar, but to me the T20 is slightly better in every aspect (except maybe armor, but that doesnt matter much).

Edit: And ofc the gun depression on the US tanks is much better, i just love it ;)

i do but its HE only and it is far from owning, at tier 5 gun with 6 shells/minute isn´t really useful. but at least i can make some dmg and cripple the enemys heavies.
the 85mm is just too weak, i wont go for the upgraded one for 15k XP!

the t-43 has much more suitable weapons for the tanks he is playing against. 100m D10T hast 175mm penetration and 230 dmg plus 8 rounds/min!

i like the 85 mm more on t43, due to its rof compared with 100 mm

not to say best 85 is more precise and hit often that 100mm...

When i used the T-43 during beta i found that its more suited for sniping then say. T-34/85 or T-34. the 100mm with gun lay drive and rammer,vents made this tank quite enjoyable.

IMO The KV-13 gets better matchmaking, which combined with its frontal arnour, makes it pretty cool. The T-43 is a nice tank, no dount, bout I can feel the iD10T gun is at its limit (I have no idea what am I going to do with the T-44)

There is another topic about KV-13 vs. T-43.
Also i don't see ant difference between T-43 and KV-13 in terms of match making.

did anyone else find this tank just plain dull to play through? Its just average in all areas, it doesnt seem to do anything amazingly well.

It gets the job done like, but I just found it to be a tiresome task grinding the EXP on it for the T-44. It never done anything in a round that made me smile.

Its like the cheese sandwich of tanks. It'll do the job, get rid of your hunger, but you're always wishing for something nicer...

like i have many times say, for me after t-34 and ms-1 most fun tank to play... elite, elite crew with camo+repair perks... more fun than in KT, or even TIGER... Billotte`s medal, allot of defender, sniper, steal wall, confederate medals... reaper, hunter and so on and on... tank is often in top 3 in game so T-43 vs T-34, or TIGAR... :) pee ka BUM, pee ka BUM, 20k with no problems, and cca 500-1000xp per batle... no premium...

i sold tank only cuz i need crew in T-44, and have no need for similar tanks in garage...
