It seems it is better to stay with stock turret (152 front armor vs 63 upgraded). 10 gun depression looks nice for hull down. Anyone playing such setup ?

Been playing it with a stock turret and 105 derp for years. Top tier it's amazing still with that setup, even on the HT line. Even more so when the E25's with AP was out and about.

Not really, only everyone else.

That is the only point of playing the Jumbo after you are done with the grind.

Stock turret + derp gun = much butthurt caused to enemies even when bottom tier.

The stock turret is much better, but the armor figures for the elite turret are the old ones; it now has a ~175mm thick mantlet. Rest of it is pretty darn weak, but if you can't handle the derp or M1A1 it's certainly an option. Stock turret makes the tank, anyway, the staying power that thing has in proper positions is just awesome.

Yeah I'm pretty sure it's illegal not to stock and derp.

I'd wish more tanks in the game'd have various ways of being setup, not just the jumbo or a few french heavies.

Derp is what makes the Jumbo.

If you want the top turret and gun...then play Easy 8... which is better...anyway.

Well there's also for example the TVP VITTU but that thing is wrong no matter what you pick.

Wrong up until the moment a Defender shows up, then you're all "oh yeahhh!" regarding your choices.

Seeing an E2 with the top turret and a 76 is like seeing a KV-2 with a 107mm. It makes me sad.

I was fan of german tanks, but now sherman looks just adorable, I have M4 atm, nothing special technically, but in practice feels so nice, not sure, maybe it's just driving history or something.

the jumbo is only viable with the stock turret and the derp gun, if you want the other gun then just get the easy8.

I run vents, gun rammer and binocs on mine, because the stock turret is blind... 350M VR does not help.. if i could id install VS on it.. so maybe a different setup would be GR, VS and binocs/optics.. thus removing vents...

 

the gun is ok, but to be honest it lacks in damage.. that gun is fine at tier 5 on the sherman, but is abit lacking at tier 6 specially when your face armored tanks like the OI...

 

But yeah it is a fun tank.. hide your hull and show only your turret...

Stock turrent + derp = one of the best tier 6 mediums
