The most "powerful Sherman in the whole game".

 

Yeah, tier X tanks have no chance against this "monster"...

Well, it is arguably currently the second-best T8 medium tank, and it does have that big gun, gun handling and shell velocity going for it. Now, take a moment to consider that a 'fire support tank' with limited top speed and sub-par camo values doesn't have the penetration to deal with many same-tier tanks. That's before you consider that even the base chance of being bottom-tier is 46%. Chance of being top-tier (which essentially is a single-tier T8 match) maybe 20-30%. Far from great.

 

Lorraine keeps being a better choice, or even the Skorpion G. Lorraine has that nice clip, which rewards flanking manoeuvres far more. Skorpion has superior penetration and damage per shot - lack of gun handling can be countered by avoiding mid-range engagements.

 

In 9.20.1 my vote likely goes for the T-34-3 - correcting the aim time (and even improving the armor) on that thing will make it quite decent to play. 175mm penetration isn't great for sure, but less of a problem when you have turret armor and speed - and mind you the same penetration with premium HEAT shells. :P

Fun tank. I have it, I love it. Did not expect to enjoy it so much. :)

 

Be warned tho, no armor. You will only bounce due to weird RNG.

Thanks to ''improved'' MM, the 200/250 pen isn't so hot anymore. I really like the tank and played a good few battles in it, but my Skorpion G has taken over as my primary credit grinder.

Take a SkorpionG, take off the gun, take away the mobility/speed, make it a bit smaller. give it a 105mm 200apcr trashcannon, call it M4 Rev.

The sheer potential of bundling these bad boys are probably keeping some chiefs going like the Panther II's new top gun. It surely won't be on offer. :D

 

The '62 was bundled on NA a couple of years ago for ~€45 - and it wasn't a great tank back then. It's better now, though the 57 seems far superior - burst damage and shell speed are both essential things to have. Might make sense to put it as a mission reward again - to rebalance the tier distribution a bit.

I have that tank and I played over 1k battles with it so all it needs is more Pen or/and more speed because it is Limited to 40 forward and 16 backward which makes it 2nd slowest medium tank ingame at tier 8.

Edit: I also noticed that I play with IX+ a LOT which means MM is crap.

This is the only premium that I have until now. It is ok but require some skill to do well in it. I have only 820 dmg over 700 battles so I am bad in it.

With the exception of: defender, lorraine, t26e5, scorpion , liberte, chrysler,  the rest of premium not worth it.

I wait for defender.

 

what you mentioned above are op premium tanks most of them won't be on sale again because of being op. sorry to disappoint you but Defender/Obj 252u will never ever be on sale again, that if WG wants to keep the game alife.

Next time before you buy premium tank make sure that you view it at ''tanks.gg'' the reason that you don't know how to play M4a1 is because you're playing it as Heavy so play it as Sniper and shoot enemies while they're distracted, it needs Speed/Pen buff but not sure if wg will listen.. IS-6 also needs pen buff but WG been ignoring it for ages.

Never again...like with E25? 

It will be on sale. Maybe with bundle but it will be available.

I think the Defender will come up for sale around Xmas time. A time when money is tighter and they need something better than the norm to tempt people to part with money still (such as an OP tank) resold.

 

Not sure why others think the defender is that OP. I can pen a defender on lower plate using my FV4202, but struggling to pen a Lowe in same area now since it got the armour buff. I'd be tempted to say the Lowe is now a better tank than the Defender?

They will be on sale again and it doesnt matter, look at the sandbox/supertest there's at least four new (Tier 8 of course) tanks being readied.

This used to be decent tank, even been my fav. premium credit farmer at some point. But, STG made this obselete. Unless you strickly need french med crew trainer for some reason, get STG instead, it can do anything this and better.

PS. That 250pen Heat really worst ammo you can use todays battles. I better just run nearly full CR with couple HE with this. Heat with that low pen is just so bad. Would really liked to have it replaced with 265pen CR like most tanks that came lately, or give proper 280+ pen Heat. This also has less CR pen over ones used on STG (200 to 212), so yeah.
