I could use an American trainer, but preferably with only 4 crew slots.

Sold the Pilot 1 because of this, I have no use for a dedicated radio man (and after 3 months, I can still recover the vehicle with credits, so, there's space for regrets).

In my alt account, I'm at Tier V, but I don't usually play it.

 

Most reviews say it moves like a Maus. Fine with me and overall looks good. The cupola is what you'd expect from an American vehicle, so no surprises there either.

 

On the other hand, the T-34-3 also looks perfect, if it were not for the worse-than-artillery dispersion. I'd like to hit what I am aiming for and I'd rather not buy a vehicle that misses fully aimed shots at 10m and ammo racks a light tank on the move AND while moving at a distance.

 

Just consider me the average bob with meh to barely acceptable performance and tell me which do you recommend, please.

No, it's garbage. It was bad when it first came out, don't want to think what it's like today.

It looks good on paper but trust me it's terrible in reality.

While the buffs were nice to the T-34-3, the gun is still absolutely dreadful. 

If you want a 390 alpha med, M4a1 is much better, albeit with less armour and sees tier X

Nope, not worth the grind. Not until it gets a pen buff and the roof tumor goes away that is, for starters anyway.

T-34-3 was and still is a great tank, it heavily depends on playstyle, it needed some buffs and it got them. watch some vids on youtube  pay attention to the gun handling, and if you are ok with that go for it

T95E2 does not have increased credit income. Its a reward tank, not a premium. And on top of that, I heard its quite horrible and pmuch flat out worse than the Pilot I (and IMO the pilot is not really good either).

 

T-34-3 has problems with massively potato gun and given that combined with its shitty pen it either has to use a bit of HEAT (and with that gun handling + HEAT, you will still expect bounces) or just...bounce (or shoot HE because it does more damage xaxaxaxa)))) . Because of that, it is not super good as credit maker compared to most other tier 8 premiums.

 

If you want alpha + turret, get M4A1 Ravioli (meeting tier 10 does kinda suck tho but other than that its really nice IMO)...or wait for Skorpion G

I dunno why people call T-34-3 a "terrible/bad" tank.

Sure, 175mm pen is sometimes horrible but when you go hull down and shoot lightly armoured targets it will print credits. But if you are looking for tank with good armour and pretty good mobility, I wouldn't go for T-34-3, instead go for 112.

 

I bought 112 last week and I can say, it might be the best premium tank for yoloing and playing like a total idiot. 45km/h top speed is amazing when going downhill and even in flat terrain you can go at 40-45km/h. Hull armor is amazing and turret is great aswell. Gun might be a potato but trust me, it's good for pref MM tank. but problem with the 112 is, as it is a heavy tank you often have to brawl against other heavys/superheavys = You're gonna have to spam some HEAT. 

 

But there is a another way to play 112. As it is more like a heavium rather than a pure heavy tank, you can use that mobility to go fight against mediums and when you fight against mediums, you're literally a god. When you angle, enemies need around 220mm of pen to get through your 2lower plate", and to get trough your "upper plate" they will need around 270-290mm pen.

Forget brawling with 112, all the heavies it faces ( besides is3 which can pen it easily anyway) are taller, so they can easily pen you at close quarters.. going med line is the way to go.

T95E2 is truly, truly awful - for the sake of your soul I don't advise going anywhere near it.

Only way for me to get it is with an alt account that someone else will platoon with me. No way I'm grinding XP and credits for a tier 10, and using specials (x3, x5) makes the whole situation much more bearable, as you'll collect crew members on the way and also get to do it with tiers 5/6 only pilling up platoon XP.

The best thing that you can do with a T95E2 is to sell it for some credits \o/

Also, 343 is not bad, but wz-111 is far more better as a Chinese crew trainer.

Weezee oneoneoneoneone is absolutely incredible for crew training indeed.

It kinda sucks to train my med crew though. The 343 is much better at that.

I think there was some talk about this around the M48 turret remodel, though not entirely sure if it was rumors or just someone mentioning the Patton-turreted tanks. 

 

59-Patton makes for a good, and roughly as bad, alternative to the T95E2.

wat?

Why not just have one radio guy dedicated to Pilot? When training your second crew it will never take any of the x2 due to acc training anyway.

You can train radio skills on whoever has them if you set them when the crew is in their normal tank, they will just be inactive in the Pilot.

If it got the same pen buff as the 59 Patton, it would be a major improvement.
