got this tank for "free" with the marathon , it's a decent tank when you're in a top tier or at most tier9 mm

Got it during the marathon. It is a good tank, very similar to Patton KR.

At current tier VIII mm, i play my M4 rev which is a good tank and many battles ends with 9 hits, and 1 pen. 

With new 268.4, 430, 430U the game is most "fun". It is also a pleasure to met with rev: 257, 705, 705A

 

And mm work also well when in city map one team gets: Strv and the another team gets tortoise

i have this tank since the marathon....

iam not a pro but i managed to understand this tank cons and pros.and i personally believe that this tank is very good as long as the owner is good. Now this means that this tank is "balanced" which in fact it is somehow (but its a bit U.P) but does it worth it? this tank sacrifice the most american aspect of medium tanks to get only a good gun handling , RoF and better terrain  resistance, what are those american aspects and specialty u might ask ... well .... great armor on turret Great view range for its tier a good engine.... as u see from my description t25 pilot lack all of the mentioned in the latter sentence but thats not all of its weakness... low ammo compared to M26 low shell velocity low power to weight ratio are also in his weakness list .....

pick this tank only if ur good enough and know how to properly use this tanks strong points

Piece of trash. Don't waste your money on this. Even when I got it for free last marathon I felt like I got the short end of the stick somehow. :P

There are indeed just better tanks for this type of game play.

That is valid for almost all tier 8 premiums and non premiums (except light tanks) imho. Very few can still be playable while bottom tier constantly.

But not that bad either :).

 

Having it from the marathon I cannot say I would actually recommend someone to buy it for cash when they can buy the Patton KR for gold in the tech tree and have almost the same tank. They both play the same.

Have the tank from the marathon. Honestly, my opinion on it is... kinda meh.

Mobility is only average at best. Power/Weight ratio is just above 14 HP/t, which doesn't help in accelerating the tank. (EDIT: For comparison with normal Tier 8 mediums, the power/weight ratio is only better than Panther II - that tank has around 12.5 HP/t ratio)

This tank has typical medium tank armor, which is pretty much none, except the gun mantlet. Bouncing shots - pretty hard. Pretty good gun depression though.

The tank has a pretty decent medium tank gun, but it's more useful only in longer, sniper ranges - DPM is just too low for close combat. (And I'm talking 1.9k DPM without rammer, and max 2.2k dpm with rammer, vents and BIA) but it won't help you much in close quarters. Good thing about the gun - it has a fast traverse, BUT I heavily recommend VStabs to keep the dispersion slightly better. Although the downside of the gun - poor penetration, even of the premium ammunition (average 240mm on premium ammo).
(EDIT ABOUT DPM: Okay, I didn't check before, but DPM is pretty average when compared to standard Tier 8 mediums... And also, why the F Object 416 is Tier 8 has a DPM of 2.5k while next closest tank by DPM (Indien-Panzer) has a DPM of only 2.1k? Russian Bias much?)

 

Overall... If you get a top tier battle, then you can have a lot of fun, it's a decent tank. In Mid-tier you'll struggle quite a bit, and forget low-tier battles - if you see top tier, run. Even premium ammo won't help you against Tier X.
My opinion: good as a collector's tank, or a trainer, but with the current MM you won't be able to do much.
