Of course it's missing that one as it paints the vehicle for what it really is: An underwhelming TD that is completely obsolete as it has no turret.

Or could it be possible that he is swearing like no tomorrow.

Overall WG wants to be good family friendly gaming company so they can't accept that kinda language.

Haha I remember when SirFoch was doing the M41 GF review for WG to put on the community spotlight and he was trying his best not to swear - you could just hear the beginning of it then he'd quickly change it something "kid friendly". :teethhappy:

 

His review is the best.

Bought it because i like the look of it and can make it work, not because it was going to be OP. It can be made work on a few maps" Not city maps". It's speed when spotted is not enough to outrun a med even some heavies . It cant pump out massive DPM unless you are vs a braindead team. Once spotted your clickbait. I even got circled by a WT PZIV and coundn't keep track of it even though i was leading it with my first shot . Too situational for 80% of maps and almost impossible to make decent credits every match , but you will make some .   Doesn't need PRAMMO and don't use the HE , it doesn't work .  Believe Foch's replay he hits the nail on the head ,

this is like a slightly worse version of udes.

unfortunately turetless td with no armor have no future in this more and more brawling in the corridors meta

if anyone wants/likes the tank, can keep the udes. no need to buy this almost-clone.

I was going to say L2P considering you're new and its one of those tanks where you need extensive map knowledge and at least some semblance of experience, but after checking your stats. Yup either a Foreign player from the NA/Ru/Sea server or a filthy re-roll.

While we cannot promote SirFoch on our portal due to the language that he uses, we know that he has an awesome community that watches him for that and the rest of his presentation.

 

So we will always gladly support him, but promotion is tough :)

Bought the STRV-S1 and its great that gun is fantastic though I really need to train my Swedish crew for the specific limitation of this tank ie tracked means dead.

 

This is way more of a problem than for most TDs given you have no traverse or elevation when tracked.

BIA + 100% Repair skill is essential large and small repair kits and the proposed change to reusable kits cannot come in soon enough for me.
