Time to use about half of my Chinese bonus (37 of the 75 battles) to grind and unlock the Chinese tie X medium tank 121 (with the use of reserves), the other half are going to go to the Chinese TDs line the next weekend.

So when are you actually going to make the Pz. T25 competitive, certainly now that the real version is in the game.

 

That gun handling is still from 2010 and so is the mobility.

I have some gold, I will add the Chi-Nu Kai to my pixel collection. I still have a radio man left from the Chi Ri and some crew training from time to time for my STB-1 crew can be handy someday. :)

Got a few MT’s I’ve been thinking of buying back again (M4 Sherman, Pz. III/IV, VK 30.01 and VK 30.02).

Biggest problem will be getting good crews for them (need TC’s with 6th sense at minimum).

Lack of a good crew is what it's keeping me from rebuying the Sherman Jumbo with the derp gun. :)

 

Ah, fun times, playing with the stock turret, parking in front of tier 6 players who bounce on you all day while you slowly chip their health away. :D

Well I have just been on the tube, and the reload time of this thing, put me straight off, plus according to jingles, a tier one can pen you. Seriously are french tank really this bad? Sorry now wasting my money on this, I did with that useless even 90, won't fall for it again. Why don't WG put a tier 9 or 10 in the premium shop, give us all a chance to get in the top games?

Lorraine 40t is actually a good support tank. But the skill cap is higher, you need to be a good player in order to make the lorry work. :)

Lorraine 40T is actually pretty good. Probably one of the best premium tier 8 tanks currently available. Ok. It does not have armor, but so have none of the french autoloaders,  but for a support tank it has good mobility, good view range and nice gun depression,  and last but not least it has really good standard AP pen (especially when compared to a SuperPershing or T54Mod 1), so you do not need to fire prem rounds, ergo you can make good credits with this one.

 

Pz T25 was my first prem tank purchased in 2012. i still like it although it turns like a whale..  A 5 skill crew helps though. 

 

The Chi- Nu Kai is also a quite capable tank, albeit a bit average. Good pen and gun handling I would say. If you just start playing WOT it is a nice one to pick up.

Fix 3/5/7MM first, nobody is interested in buying always bottom tier t8 tanks.

​I don't mind it that much, played it just now and aced it with 1900 dmg. Drives like a Hellcat and you get to take a breather while you're waiting for the aim to settle. :P

But yeah that aim time and turret traverse could do with bufferoos.

I've been after a premium German medium for a while now (the T55A is proving illusive).

 

So I'll pick up the T25.  I've had the VK 30.02M in my garage for over 6 months (with no crew).  It's time to fix that.

 

Looks like that Val. II garage slot might come in handy.

The T25 was the first tank I had a legitimate carry in back in 2015. I took it out towards the end of last year for some nostalgia, the first time in nearly two years playing it. My reaction was...

 

 

Serious need of mobility and gun buffs.

I notice that neither of the Tier 5 meds are discounted in the premium shop.

 

Is that normal/intentional ?

 

Usually these kind of (money grabbing) discounts are for cash only, not gold.
