Not my thing, static gun TD's are pretty much handicapping yourself for no reason in the current game meta and map design.

 

If it doesn't have a turret, it's not worth it (with a few small exceptions like the E-25 / SU-122-44)

 

Can we get the Type62 on sale please, otherwise #WalletClosed.

Great gun, great cammo, not so great in the other departments and very situational.

 

A camper's delight.

Nice enough but some changes needed to make the siege mode tds work in the game.

They are just to vulnerable, its the overpowered underpowered thing that some tanks just have.

 

In the current game and at the ranges combat takes place they are vulnerable.

If the ranges were greater and they could remain hidden more often they would be way overpowered.

 

All tanks can move their guns to some degree even when tracked all the Swedish siege mode tds have zero gun traverse and I think only one has gun elevation.

So its not just that you can be flanked when tracked the enemy only have to move a few feet to make your gun useless.

Firing on the move I find all but impossible the UDES 03 can do it as it can elevate the gun

I like playing them as they are a challenge but a very frustrating one st times.

 

More than any other tank I think you need a really good crew, my crew concentrated on camo I think I would be much better off having them retrained for repair.

I do have 20 premium tanks at the moment and this one is the one I play the most. The most played tank in the garage, when I think of it. So I do recommend it. The one that I also recommend is the FV4202 which is great tank as-is, pending massive buff in the next patch. I would refrain of recommending other premiums, even those considered OP, such is Chrysler, Obj252U, T26e5, which all of these are members of my garage.

 

There!

Oh look, the tier 8 of the week is one of those unspotable TD's that can snipe you, with all the penetration of the world at tier 8, from the other side of the map or at 200m from you and you can't see them unless the whole team rushes him.

 

Fair enough.

That thing is very situational. On city maps you have a problem. Playing on the offensive is a bit problematic too.

 

The penetration and camo makes that thing work. When playing in a platoon, you are permanent low tier. So you see every time tier XI and X. This thing still makes profit. :)

Not sure where to post this question so I'll try here...

 

Where is the World of Tanks EU event calendar located these days? I get a 404 error when I try following the old links to it. The US has a helpful Calendar showing the upcoming specials and events etc but I cannot see an equivalent for the EU? I only ask as I'm curious as to what the next Tier VIII of the week will be... (if there even is one!) 

 

Thanks in advance for any info!

Nice TD. I own it from release and I m happy. Maybe few km to slow but ok. Recommended. Good cammo, excellent gun pen, bounce almost all to 100 mm guns. Otherwise player need to adopt to new play style with "X" and siege mode...

 

Erm 90mm guns only. 100mm will triple overmatch -ALWAYS-. "some 100mm guns?" shows how much people know about this dam game...

Every video I see on YouTube of these consists of fellow team players pushing these off cliffs, into rivers or flipping them over.

Well, considering how funny is a red-line camping snipping TD gameplay, that's a way to put some fun into their gameplay. Since the only good thing this TD's do is: Boost up-hills noone ever saw before beeing boosted; beeing the only alive from his team against 10 enemies and dig 3k dmg in the lat minute of the match before he dies because the team can't spot him unless they get close enough; or simply snipe you to death from everywhere whitout getting spotted back.
