Hello everyone. 
I've had a Super Pershing for a while and i played a fair bit of battles with it. The gun is horrible, it aims forever and it still misses, armor sometimes works and sometimes you get pen'd like you're in a STA-2, but the main issue to me is it's mobility. The tank is just waaaaaaaay to slow and sluggish. Power to weight of 9.5 i think is just lame for a medium, hell, they should classify it as a heavy now, only thing about that tank that could be considered medium is the gun. :teethhappy:

It's needs a buff. It needs it desperately. You don't have to buff the gun, or the armor (even though the gun is bad as i said), buff it's mobility so it can finally move and feel like a medium. I'm certan that the bad gun handling would be a less of a problem if you could actually move around the map. Every time i get a Westfield in it i feel like i lost 15 minutes of my life, just because it's slow and it will take me forever to get somewhere. 

What do you guys think? Is it still a decent tank? What would you buff on it?

After 1448 game played in it, can confirm everything that you wrote.

I using a decent crew (69% at the 5th skill) but this tank just too slow. No way to help the team if need help at the other side of the map. Relocate in this thing is not an option. It feels like i driving a T28 proto... Guess why it has almost the same power ratio: SP: 9.89 T28 proto: 10.21. Oh i was wrong it not the same actually it is fewer. 

 

 

Edit: I propose to rename it to Snail Pershing.

Lol, i like the name, it really is slow. I mean 500 hp engine on a 51 ton tank is lame. 

As far as crew is concerned, i've got a decent crew as well but that can't help it, power to weight is just waay to low, that's the problem.

Yup, and the biggest problem is that its "speed" killing the fun factor of the Snail Pershing.

If its not a superior tank at least should be fun to play with but its not the case...

Luckily the crew fit into the T25 Pilot and that is an enjoyable tank to drive at least

Yeah well i don't have the Pilot so crap. But i don't even want it to tell u the truth, i don't like how it looks and there is nothing "great" about it anyways.

You already had the chance to get a refund. Too late now.

Yeah we all know refund is never gonna happen, and it doesn't have to. If they buff it so that it can actually go 40 on level ground and not just while going downhill, give it more powerful engine and better terrain resistance, i'd be thrilled. It's far from a great tank, but i do love it and i'm certan that if they were to buff it, it would be my fav.

Maybe just load gold? 258 pen APCR will rip through an O-Ho like butter. O-Ho is a super heavy don't forget, it's supposed to have armour.
