I bought this tank just before it went into Special Vehicle status and haven't played it so far, partly because I don't have equipment on it yet. Rammer and optics are a logical choice for me, but I'm in doubt what to use as 3rd. Usually people will take vstab whenever you can. Since you get set on fire a lot of times and the ammo rack is weak, I've been thinking. Is it worth it to drop vstabs for Wet Ammo Rack, or "fill tanks with CO2"?


As always: thanks for the replies!

Rammer, vents, Vert.Stab.
Only thing you could change is getting Optics instead of Vents but i'd take vents rather.

optics isnt worth it on this tank, it has 410m base considering the short range engagements we get these days its more then plenty (with a decent crew it will hit 445m anyway) gonna echo what others said because i run it the same way, rammer/vents/vstab.

It's never worth dropping vstabs, it's the one piece of equipment I consider to be mandatory when it can be fitted.


A wet rack might help if you're continually getting a damaged rack when your loader has safe stowage, the only tank I've got one on is my Skoda T 25 because the rack in that is terrible for taking damage. Filling your tanks with CO2 is only useful if your fuel tanks are what's catching fire - if it's the engine (and the FV is nearly all engine up front) then CO2 tanks will do nothing to prevent fires. Running an automatic extinguisher will reduce your fire chance, I use those on every tank from tier 6 up except arty because they have so few hp that being set on fire with an auto-extinguisher is really just a way to waste 20k credits.

As a Dinger i advocate the permanent use of premium ammo but i still had to FIFY.
