Why is this tank have a high threshold to achieve a good score in the game??? 

 

The tank has bad depression, it is usually match in a T10, as it is slow you cannot circle tanks, and the shells bounce if you fire from a distance. further to that to achieve your mark of excellence is probably one of the hardest on WOT

-10 gundep is allot. its just the platform is tall so it feels allot worse.  also the guns just lacking pen, the platform lacks mobility for the paper hull. funny how Lorrain gets 232pen heavy tank autoloader gun and be classed as a medium. while this M4Rev turd gets nothing besides gun handling that wont let u pen anything regardless of how well you aim.

Yes Ok 

You are correct but search warrant has just answered that issue,thanks:)

However with the slow load, slow speed and penetration issues this tank is in need of a make over, plus the grind for the mark of excellence is a nightmare similar to the WZ-111

Lol.

The gun has one of the best depression in the game, especially for the alpha it does.   It also has the bets gunhanling for any gun with the same dmg values.

I quite like the tank. Sure better mobility and penetration would be nice but it doesn't take much to get some half decent damage in it thanks to the decent alpha.

Shell velocity is fantastic making it very easy to hit moving targets etc. 

Agreed on the penetration though. Even with premium it's a 50/50 if you will damage a Type 5 frontally.

And one of the best credit gains... untill you realise it has 200apcr which is almost preff levels of pen its so bad, 250heat is garbage too.

The point being the Tank in my opinion needs to have a buff to stay inline with the other Prem tanks as you usually go against T10 and the penetration is pretty hit and miss. in some cases it like chucking tennis balls :)

It's just a paper, yet hard hitting tank? What did you expect from a sherman chassis?

Plus, it being difficult to get a mark of excellence is a good thing right? That does ultimately mean that the tank ain't crap at the very least.

Ah man, I still remember the good old times where you would play the regular old Sherman versus an IS-7...

The good: Alpha, Shell velocity, Depresion, Good moneymaker (if you manage to penetrate).
The bad: Pen, Mobility, Low camo, No armor, To tall and mediocre gun handling.
