RIP.

 

Imagine a PZ IV Hydrostat without preferential matchmaking. That's what this tank is.

 

I mean yeah, it has better DPM and 3 more penetration. I'd rather take preferential matchmaking than that. The gun handling is slightly better when stationary but worse on the move or after it. The Turan also has lower top speed and a lot worse traverse.

 

The ammo capacity of Turan which is 32 is also a disaster with a 110 alpha gun like this. Hydro carries 87 ammo.

Better this than tomatos buying another T8 premium tank and ending up in T8+ matches while having no idea how to play the game in the first place....

 

But yeah, compared to the regular vehicles already available, a lot of which are superior, I don't see a point in buying this tank either.

Not worth it. Buy the T25 or something. 32 rounds and slow speed. Sees tier 7, meh.

WHERE IS MUH KV-5???

 

WG, here would be nice chance to gain atleast 40 euros. Just put that damned KV-5 on store and buy it. But no, you sell this instead which almost no one will buy (i never see these...)

I would buy it today right now, if the Turán III prototípus had


 

extra +100hp  increase the weak engine power ~ make all the difference its so slow and sluggish (in 4 minute turbo slaughters well its not fun

52 rounds of Ammunition ~ not the 32 it has ~ you can and will easily run out of ammo


 

Then it would be well worth buying

as it is now ~ NO!

Not sure why I bought it back then ... could've been drunk!? ... but not that bad to play ... if you ignore the utter $haite ammo capacity!!! FFS 32 rounds!?!?!?! ... even I managed to run out of ammo before dying ...and I usually die pretty fast :D

Maybe there is a reason why Prototypes never saw actual combat...

One for the collectors as they say, let it sit in the garage polish it now and again.

Its the ammo that put me off it well mainly.

 

Q are there two design teams working on new tanks. ?

The reason I ask is that originally premiums were produced based on the rule that they would be as good or a little better than a stock tank but not as good as a fully upgraded tank.

To balance this out they often got preferential matchmaking.

 

Now Preferential MM is dead and buried Premiums are being made almost if not as good as standard tanks and this is great.

But I cannot help thinking that somewhere a group of designers are still working according to the former ideal.

 

We seem to get really good premium tanks then some fairly lackluster tanks.

Not that I play alot in tier 5 matches but I hardly ever see this tank on the battlefield. Carrying only 32 rounds for a tier 5 is a pretty low standard, even for experienced players. From what I've seen in  reviews the gun is not great either. I think you're better off buying the Churchill 3 or T25 for €5, when on offer it's only €2,50!

 

I  think this tank is in need of a (much-needed?)  buff and It should be in the in-game shop aswell.

a friend gifted me this quite awhile back, its a pretty mediocre vehicle with below average viewrange and a absurdly low ammo capacity quite slow, gun is pretty okay and the armor will stop some HE fire. panzer T 25 is far better vehicle and is sometimes discounted aswell so its a far better vallue. 

 

despite this i find it okay to play but ussualy i play it in platoons because ammo is a issue i run it 16AP/16APCR im thinking of running it full APCR

It's a shame all it has is "collectors" status.

 

Let Murazor do some magic with it.

Turning the 20e this thing costs into cents and throwing them 1 by 1 out of teh window is a smarter decision than buying it.

What's the proposition?

1) Collect WW2 German? Can't complete that collection cuz VK72 is an exclusive reward tank.

2) A crew trainer for German meds? Why would you want to train a German med crew when German meds are of no use in the game whatsoever - not in team battles, Strongholds or tier 6, 8 or 10 CW's.

 

Can't think why anyone would buy this.
