So, T55A is all around a good tank, but u really cant use the turret since it has weak spots on both sides of the gun. If u try to hull down, enemy will most likely hit the area with 200mm of armor and pen. Maybe give it same kind of turret as T-54 has?

Hmm....T-54...is in the soviet tech tree...T-55a...is in the german tech tree...Belarus...was in the soviet union...do you need more clues as to why it won't be buffed?

Yep, it needs a buff. Don't care about the hull, just give it a better turret ffs. The Type 59 has far better turret armour on a tank that only sees T9s.

it has the old T-54 turret, but unlike the T-54 it wasn't buffed unfortunately...

Not like it was the #1 tank for most players in MoN for T9 Germany or anything...

I don't understand the T55A dislike. Compared to the T54 it's much more comfortable to play, mostly due to the aim time and soft stats. I would welcome a turret front buff with open arms though.

I was terrible at and hated the T-54 but that was years back when I never used HEAT.

 

Now that I have the T55A ... the gun handling and accuracy are excellent. It's a bit sluggish (lower top speed for no reason, otherwise understandable that engine power has to be historical) and the armor is honestly trash now, as if it wasn't already worse than T-54. At least 1 less cupola to worry about.

 

The two tanks are completely messed up. The same gun on the T-54 is completely different, but the D-54 one, while closer in role has more pen...and for some reason T55A has less gun depression with the T2S.

 

None of it makes any sense. T-54 should have never had 120mm upper plate and it should have more pen by default.

I hope they can just give the T55A better stock ammo and keep the gun handling to compensate for worse hull. Obviously the turret should match the T-54 in terms of armor.

No, but it has better turret armour nonetheless.

Far superior, that is. Disregarding any other statistic or performance of the vehicles, the picture below shows how the turrets hold up against the 225 mm AP shell of the IS-3. I was pretty surprised as well.. Then again, the HEAT-54/55 meta should get a major rebalance in general to not need to rely on the (ridiculous) HEAT round as much as they do right now. I'd personally like to see the base penetration of the 100 mm D-10T2S increased to 219 mm (current value of the D-54 gun), and the HEAT round exchanged to the 264 mm APCR shell that the tier 10 meds use as default ammunition. On the T-54, the D-54 could get a penetration increase from 219 to something like 229 and retain its HEAT shell but also the sub-par DPM it currently has.

 

Spoiler

If they are gonna do anything about the T-55A, it'll not come sooner than four-five months* after the T-54 adjustments. Kind of doubt there'll be a buff anyway.

It is a good, the only thing that bothers me is the turret since T-54 got the turret buff but T55A didnt. (which doesnt make any sense)

I would not mind if it got the T-54 turret buff etc. But as long as they leave the hybrid gun vs the T-54.
