What does 100% Major Qualifications mean? Its like 100% crew but without BIA some tanks get (like Berlin tanks)?

Just means a 100% crew ready for first skill or perk. NO automatic BIA- Like the Berlin trio

And just noticed that this one is far worse than the original. If it fights tier 10, it should be similar to M26, but instead its junk (aiming time, accuracy, premium round penetration, turret).

240 for premium round in not that bad on t8 as you make it sound. Pretty much as accurate as m26, aimtime bit worse but better on the move. Turret looks like m46's stock turret, kinda logical, since it is an m46 as well. :/ Consider it's a premium tank, why'd it be as good as m26? Not close to "junk" either.

Well, maybe you are right. They are playing with those numbers like with domino :/

But it also have little less view range. Thing about me is that i train BIA and put vents, train view range skills to INCREASE lots of stats, not to reduce them. This tank seams to stand in the way of that.

 

If someone is lacking good premium tanks, this might be good. But i have lots of them so i will pass. Since i have mutz i dont need this one :D

It has a nice custom paint job and it's "only" the cost of four and a half T144-100 mission tokens.

 

It's still £28 for some downloadable content.  I'll pass.

The effective aimtime isn't worse than the Pershings due to the considerably better bloom values. It is a very comfy tank to drive but obviously not as powerful as the Pershing.

Just a normal 100% crew its the confusing way they choose to advertise it.

Nearly everyone understands the phrase 100% crew.

100% in major qualifitcation makes you stop and think for a minute as it sounds like they have a skill to 100%

 

Crews come in 3 flavours now.

100% in major qualification = 100% + no extras

Berlin Crew = 100% crew + 100% BIA as a FREE skill

Female crew from PMs = 100% crew + 100% in SOS as a FREE skill"equivalent to BIA" + enough crew xp for100% in the next skill/perk you choose.

Despite the fact that I seem to do quite well in it (250 games and 64% w/r), I feel that it is worse than the AMX CDC or FV4202. The thing is just average in all respects. The turret front is VERY weak ( 60mm of armour), it is slow, has low(ish)pen and is a quite a large target. Sure the soft stats on the gun are good, but considering that it meets tier 10s quite frequently, I would pass for any of the above or even the T54 mod 1.

I have the M46Kr and must say I do find it a mediocre tank. I simply can't get it to work. I don't find the gun handling is that good. I think it has something to do with turret traverse equal or worse that hull traverse. So when you turn the tank the turret often can't keep up. This is disappointing. And armour seems nonexistent. It is also a slow medium, although not as slow as the superior SuperPershing. Maybe it is because it does not suit my playstyle.

Remove this tank from tier 10 and you have my money. You WG are very stupid to put tier 8 premium tanks in tier 10 matches.

 

How can you expect to make money in tier 10 with penetration under 200 and with damage of 240?

Basically a premium pershing. I would personally say not worth it simply for the fact that it doesnt have preferential MM and it has mediocre penetration. If they brought this tank to light  like 3-4 years ago at the time when pershing came out. It would be an excellent tank but these days same as its equivalent and similar premiums like T44-100 or type 59 in this aspect it is simply outdated for the current state of the game. Pershing is a bit better because of its viewrange but the fact remains that being in T10 with less than 215 penetration or really OP premium ammo like T54 has is a no go and you only get frustrated, especially with the current map pool being 30% city maps and 70,% corridor maps where you can hardly flank anything...

Personally I think that wg should give preferential MM to all T8 meds/heavies/td which have less than 210-215 pen unless they have 300+ pen premium ammo. Especially to premium tanks.. how are we supposed to make money in a premium tank which has to spam premium ammo to actually do anything, especiallly when they actually nerfed the silver gain by like 30% or so quite some time ago...

Well, it´s nice of you guys to keep those old premiums coming for us new players and especially nice when they seem outdated so we save money this week, he, he... :-D Joking aside, nice to see that you continue offering premiums with different loads of gold, missions and such, keep´em coming, just want to mention 2 things (Again, wondering if someone at WG reads those threads, one can´t but hope...):

1. Will those old premiums ever get a balance check? Been trying out quite a few and some seem well equipped with nice hard and soft stats, high tier modules, prefered MM and so on while some just, well, you wonder why you ever bought it. The answer being, you were new and stupid, but happy customers are godd for business no? :-) Also, if say the ones your hard pressed to hear anyone saying something good about don´t sell and if they do we all get those lovely haters going bananas, well, that´s not good is it? Must be balanced of course but still... ;-)

2. Yes, yes, you love the FV 4202(P). Some boss have made a bet that he will make it the best selling piece of electronic tank ever. Some beutiful woman/man said it looked great on someones screen?! :-D But please, PLEASE, put some new/old/different in the shop ALONG that people will need or is even ABLE to buy more then one of because this has been on since I joined and yes, we have a selection of ...em... models that you can buy now, but maybe it´s just me but it´s really, really hard to squeeze those into your computer! ;-) 

 

So, in all, nice work with the weekly tanks, I´ll be sure buy more when the nice ones comes along, but hey, better selection, more income, sweet deal for WG, Beardmonster and all happy players... ;-)

My best game:
