Ive tried alot of tanks but never seen any worse than the chinese medium tank line, im currently at the T 34-1 the tier 7 medium and there is almost no videos about the line on youtube, well theres alot reasons for that

let me name a couple you have a gun that has 126mm pen up to tier 8, the gun has no gun depression which mean that you have to expose your entire tank on a hilly map to do any dmg. yes the best turret has good armor but that doesnt help you if you still have to expose your entire tank to get a shot in. While looking around i found a video on youtube about the tanks the youtuber that posted the video said that no one was playing the tanks because they are so bad that people either go the light tank line or just convert a bunch of xp and skip them. If there is anyone here that has played the tanks you probably know what im talking about. Please post your opinions on this    

 

Edit:   As of what ive seen the tier 9 is quite good and enjoyable but the tanks on the way up to it are not and i havent got the 175 mm pen gun yet but grinding with 128mm pen is very boring in my opinion

Up to tier 6, they're clones of other tanks. I enjoyed the T-34-1, but the 34-2 is just a turd. Worst of all, there is literally no reason to play the tank. If you want the top tier Chinese med, you can play the lights and unlock it that way. Not yet played the WZ-120 or higher yet though, so can't comment on those. Some reviews below, though a little aged now.

T-34-1 is IMO one of the better tier 7 med around.  Line in general is not terrible, but still could use a buff or two here and there sure. As for the tier 6 pen? Well you make it sound like 132 or 144 is a lot to vs tier 8's like some tier 6 meds have. But most like the US tier 6 meds and the Russian A-43 are in the 126mm area to. So he is not alone.

T34-1 is excellent. Probably one of the best T7 MTs in the game. The gun has 175 PEN which is very good for a T7 MT. If you play it with the 85mm thats your problem. You have 250 alpha, 175 PEN and a turret that can bounce T8 HTs. 

 

Stop crying and play the tank to its strengths.

I enjoyed the T-34-1 as well and had some great games in it. However, I'm not going anywhere near the T-34-2.

Chinese Medium Line

Type T34 = alright

Type 58 = alright

T34-1 = pretty good compared to other tier VII mediums

T34-2 = slightly under average tier VIII

WZ 120 = average amongst tier IX mediums

121 = Not as good as 907, Object 140, T62A, or even Object 430. So fifth of the five clones. Of course the USSR mediums are better all rounders than the NATO gun support mediums.

 

At least thats my experience of all of them, and I played them through and have a 121. Both the 113 and the WZ 111 5A are better than the 121 as well (I have both of those as well).

This turd needs polishing.

Couldent stand the derpyness and terrible aimtime of the tier 7 as it has horrible module damage issues made it not fun to play, also frontal gas tank was a bad idea WG... tier 8 is just.. a bad T-44...

Honestly I didn´t find it that bad. Played something like 50 games in it without FE and I never got set on fire. Gun is decent for that alpha. Snapshots seldom happen though which is my mine gripe with it. 

 

The tank is very good overall. You just have to be somewhat smart about it as there are few places you can go hulldown with such bad gun dep. Top tier I often go brawl with the HTs. I had some of my best games on city maps where you can hide the hull behind some rubble.

T-34-1 is probably the best tier 7 med in the game, the t-34-2 is mediocre all round but not bad and the 9 & 10 are decent tanks.

The US T28, it could use a frontal armor buff. The 203mm massive lower plate is just terrible even when facing the newer T8 tanks. It's DPM and gun are alright but the T28 prot has the same armor (slightly better slope) and not to mention a turret giving it much more flexibility. The armor isn't really an improvement (the gun is slightly better but with the turret you can do so much more).

Not hard to make a "best in tier medium" as literally all of them suck vs tier 8 and 9 tanks and dont do that well even vs lower tiers.
