Even a blind man with a dog can hit you in this tank, weakspot is XXL and can't be missed by anyone.

Hello there again :)

 

Now I have uploaded the Video and would like to show it to you :)

Summary:

I personally like the tank alot. It has great gunhandeling, great mobility and somewhat working armor. If toptier you can easily dominate T6-T7 opponents and you are a fear inducing enemy for the T8 enemys. If you are floptier just keep a little bit back and give supportiv fire. If your 190mm AP pen is not enough you can switch to your 250mm HEAT pen with excellent balistics and great speed ( APCR lvl). I can definitly recomend you this tank for being a really good and balanced t8 medium tank.

 

Cheers

Ahh I see Joke tank of the week continues to thrive, I just love these tanks with otherwise great armour but with a weak spot that's impossible to hide unless you find a rock or house with a hole in it.

 

I would be interested to see how this particular tumour limited the real tank, I mean I imagine an AP Shell could rip that right off the turret whereas in the game even after getting hit a dozen times assuming the tank is still alive it still remains a weak spot.

 

It's like the top turret on the Lee Grant it cannot turn or fire the gun so is useless except as a target.

It wouldn't surprise me if one of these made it into the game before too long.

I recently bought this tank and I cannot understand why this tank gets to see tier 10?


It's pretty sluggish, hard to reach top speed, mediocre traverse, 190 pen with 240 max damage isn't great especially in tier 10 and of course the massive weakspot.

 

People are better off buying the FCM50t if they want a fast agile tank with tier 9 max.

Strange to see this tank on sale. I clearly remember some WG dev's being sacked for releasing certain tanks.

"The company,  wants to fix all these issues and has pressed the panic button, Cyprus became disatisfied with Evilly (Anton Pankov)'s work mostly due to the adittion  of shitty Premium tanks (STA-2, Patton 59, etc)"

I give you several reasons you should not buy Type 59-patton:

 

-Cupola: HUGE, really HUGE weakspot.

-It sees tier 10 with 190 pen gun.

-Sluggish as every chinese medium.

-Low module health as every chinese medium.

-Frontal fires and ammoracks as every chinese medium.

-Crew prone to take damage.

 

Dont feed this kind of policy towards chinese tanks.

That's not bad for T8 medium. There are worse tanks in the tree, e.g. T-44 has 183mm T-34-2 has 181mm. Pershing also has only 190mm.

 

Play the tank as it should be played and penetration will be the last of its issues.

thats not the point,the point is why would you buy this tank when you can buy fcm with special MM and better pen? unless you are a collector there is literally no reason to buy it
