Neither rare nor effective.

Back in the days it was a kind, now with all the others prems and stronger tanks, it's just nothing special.

Hoped for AMX M4 49 just so i would swap my Liberte to vanilla AMX M4 49 like it was possible with Patriot, but oh well.

Bought it some time ago, already have 200+ battles in it. Took it this morning out for 5 battles - before the offer went live - and got my 1st mark of excellence on it.

2 battles had 2500+ WN8, 2 battles had 4500+ WN8, 1 battle I was crap. So overall, very good for my rating and the credit income.

 

It is an excellent crew trainer for the top tier german TDs as it has the same crew layout and took just a few battles to retrain my crew for the Grille 15.

Also because of the 3x crew xp bonus for every win.

I'm wondering with it being a prize in the big xmas decoration box if we'll ever get it.

This game is turning into Quake III Arena thats very fast facing wars. Our tanks are not jumping yet but I think they will in future !! Today those old gems is useless after every game iterations, fast medium tanks become king on this game and they take a bite from gameplay with every update iterations . So I think old tanks are becoming increasingly useless.

Used to be a fun tank back in the day but haven't played it for months now. Excellent credit grinder and decent crew trainer but it's quite slow and sluggish and not the most fun.  Buy a Skorpion, Krupp Steyr or E25 :trollface:

Neither of your options is a good crew trainer for Jagd E100 or the Grille 15.

I once heard that the NA Twitch streamer Overloard_Prime on his stream said that this tank is a really good credit maker, yet it is painful to play, so he wouldn't recomend it to anyone who can't "deal with the pain" of driving it.

This thing is neither ferocious nor good, it's easily pinned in place and shot up with premium ammo.

 

Once the mobility is buffed to T9 Jagdtiger levels it will become competent, but until then it's one of the worst TD's you can buy.

Oh, was my earlier comment way too spot on? Because I see it got removed. Well, to cap it up:

 

Still waiting for non-clown camo version of AMX M4 49, long due with T26E5 and Obj.252U out.

And the JT88 is really in need of buff:

- Very old premium tank, and thus outdated in current meta and overshadowed by newer tanks

- Gun just doesn't cut it against other tier VIIIs, and don't even mention tier IX, neither in pen nor damage

- Armor is a joke versus equal tier tanks save for the frontal superstructure - hull gets penetrated easily up front because it is too huge to hide with the gun traverse limits most of the time, and the joke of 80mm roof/side armor leads to way too many penetrating SPG HE-shells

- Very situational armor coupled with poor mobility makes it very vulnerable

+ Cheap ammo so it still makes credits when you don't do well in it

Got one anyway and even if you payed me enough to play on these stupid maps (you couldn't), whats the point in having a long range accurate sniper cannon, when the next corner is only 50m away anyway :sceptic:

 

and an expensive bungle, lel

It was very good before, but it needs to have a 12.8 cm gun, or at least a 10.5 cm.  The 8.8 cm gun is accurate, but it bounces a lot and will not penetrate Tier 8 Heavies as it should.  The speed is OK but Traversing could be better.    Perhaps too WOT should create a partition between WW2 and Korean War Era Tanks and Cold War Period Tanks as the Cold War Period Tanks had more advanced features.

Ho boy, a slow as balls turretless TD that doesn't have the standard AP penetration required to be effective against sumos and premium heavies. Who in his right mind would ever buy this?
