I want to know where is the Chinese bias on this one ? 

 

60g ft the tier 5 CH TD is worse version than su85 , its slower , way less armored , bigger , very easy for arty to hit and do full damage 

 

It doesn't have armor or mobility , frustrating as hell 

 

Problem is I have stock 75% crew just like everyone else

 

Any tips?

It has 340 m view range or something like that instead of 280 so its automatically better than the SU-85 by that fact alone. SU-85 has literally 0 carry potential because it has no view range so it completely relies on team to snipe and it can brawl either. 60G FT can at least outsppot things if it mounts binocs. View range is big thing at lower tiers which is why the SU-85 is honestly terrible and probably the worst regular tier 5 TD.

 

60G FT also has much better DPM and -8 depression instead of -6. SU-85's armor isnt exactly very useful either (especially since tier 5s no longer see tier 3s).

 

Dont judge tanks by 75% crews lol. I assume that having camo crew and SS would help drastically that tank. Again, view range is quite significant at those tiers.

Is there a Chinese bias? Towards what?

Though all of this is true, I found the 60G FT a truly horrible tank to grind. The fact that it is so massive and absolutely zero armor was not compensated by the (I have to admit) excellent top gun. In these lowtiers, it just makes a massive difference if the hordes of hetzers and other derps are capable penning a tank frontally with their HE. And that happened. multiple times. :arta:

 

Also, both the 60G FT and the SU-85 are just kemp bush tanks. They literally can do nothing else. And because of that, the fact that the chinese thingy has more viewrange is kind of compensated by the SU-85 having a massive advantage in camo. All in all I would probably still rather play the SU-85 than this chinese box.

Oh good lord, im so "looking forward" on getting this tank then

 

Still, I think the fact it has crapton better view range makes it better abuseable than having ridiculous camo but no view range. Even with camo skills I was unable to outspot anything with SU85 unless I didnt fire, while this should theoretically hit max VR with binocs and gud enough crew, meaning it actually can outspot things.

 

The huge, 20mm platform seems annoying, though, especially how infested the tier 5 is with derp guns

Already regret not having freexp'd to tier 6. Giving this tank until Sunday, after that it's gone. The gun is alright but platform way too annoying.
