I just checked the available equipments and realised it was able to equip a rammer. No other Tier 1-3 tank in my knowledge is able to do so. And I tested, I was able to mount it.

It's a quite signifiant advantage. Do you guys think this is a mistake or intended?

Only tier III's I have are all premiums. But none of my other tier 3 prem meds can. Inc the GrTr that more or less has the same gun.

 

SU-76i and Sexton I can tho besides the T-29. Pak 40 can't.

I was bored so I checked and the following tier 3 vehicles can mount rammer:

 
Light Medium Heavy Tank Destroyer Arty
T-46 M2 Medium None M3G FT All of 'em
  Medium III   SU-76I  
  Pz. IV A   SU-76M  
  T-29   T56 GMC  

 

*Added the T-46 I missed.

With an autoloader too. The ONLY tank in the game with an autoloader capable of mounting a gun rammer.  GG.

Ah-yup. People really don't give dear Chiriko the recognition she deserves.

Oh, I wasn't aware there was others. Nice find. :) I still find quite strange only those have the ability to mount rammers.

PS: that rammer option on the T-29 is the final nail in the Gr.Tr.'s coffin.

Don't know when I last one of those.

 

Then again I try and speed grind through the low tiers as fast as possible.

 

I have no appetite for the shenanigans down there. If you are not being murdered by re-rolls and stat-padders in their Pz ICs you are left pulling your hair out at 12 of your allies trying to camp base on Mines, including the heavily armoured French tanks.

It's for a good reason. It is trash and has always been. The lack of pen, shell velocity and ROF really hurts. The HP pool is nice, but the armor is so bad machineguns and howitzers eat large chunks out of it.
