It's a proper good one. Skorpion G have gun and turret advantage but in its own way one could make a case for it being as good.

honestly? no.. SkorpionG does its job better. WZ-120-1 armor is kinda crappy when bottom tier all the time (typical tier 8 MM) also the LFP is autopen for any tier, roof overmatch easy.  the pens ok but the guns got accuracy of an arty and the aimtime is DISGUSTING for a 440 alpha gun with poor gun arc, why the hell skorpG gets a turret with godlike aim and 0.30 dispersion is beyond me.

 

As long as SkorpG exists there is no reason to play any other tier 8 TD besides crew training for that nation. WG shot themself in the foot when they released that broken tank, no current nor future TD's will ever be as good as SkorpG. moron balance department.

Bet they currently making skorpG (rasha edition) with with 300mm armor all around but it has a cupola the size of typical rasha heavy tanks as a weak spot id guess.

One of the best premium tanks available in the premium shop. At least that's my opinion. DPM, mobility, cammo, more than decent armor, very good pen on both shell types. Horrible gun handling, but you can't have them all.

Well, there are 2 other options. One is Jagdtiger 8.8, which let's be serious is not really a valid option. So the only remaining tier 8 TD is Strv S1.

Between WZ-120 and Strv-S1 i'd go for WZ without thinking,  but that's me. It's much more versatile than the swedish one; you can play it regardless of the MM and of the map.  But if you like sniping go for Strv, that's also a good credit maker since the standard pen is ~300 i believe.

The WZ actually has pretty solid armor. Even if the model on tanks.gg shows only 220mm frontally, I believe it's a bit more.

 

Strv S1 is a very good option as well, if you want a credit maker. For over 250 battles, I can promise you that I haven't shot more than 2 premium rounds. I've never been on minus. Bad sides are that it is probably the most map dependent machine in the game. You get Ensk, you better desert the battle.

It's worth every cent . Armor works fine and you can angle to make it better .You need to aim fully or youll miss every shot  unless you are point blank . Anything that tries to circle you will die and give you credits and exp .The DPM is epic + HE shell dmg v squishies wont be walked off . 

Top teir v teir 6 if you hide that LFP  YOU are GOD and DEATH.

Best used peeking over a slight ridge giving you even more effective armor , more of a brawler than a sniper

Angle and you get Detrack damaged every shot. armor is useless as everyone can snap the LFP mid distance. the fact you need to aim so long cuts into DPM hard. it turns fast but you wont out turn a LT. even top tier, tier 6 can go threw everywhere other than the UFP. peeking ridges is hard with only 6 gundep. go too far and you expose LFP which is almost always due to crap gundep.

Accuracy is like that because the tank wasn't meant to be a red line sniper, but more of an assault gun, second line support, it's like this to "force" you go closer

but, yea as you mentioned, it suffers because of tier 8 mm syndrome, in a good mm you can get a good amount of bounces, and really bully lower tiers.

​Seeing as your enemies are not affected by RNG and are all snapshot gods there's no wonder all tanks are trash to you. :P

When playing WZ-120-1 it feels that way.

I started to think that we are not discussing about the same tank. Just to be clear I was reffering, to WZ-120-1-FT, premium chinese tier 8 TD, which is absolutely OP versus tier 6 and 7. Versus tier 8 is very good. Versus tier 9 and 10 is competitive.

I had ny highest ever base XP in it. Just driving into other tanks' faces basically.. But it's like most turretless TDs in that it quickly becomes boring to play. It wil make a lot of credits though.

Tell that to everyone who i faced in it going threw my LFP and bullying me coz brawlfests with corner it doesent work. you try be agressive in this and you end up detracked and dead, casemate TD's are dead.

 

Edit: showing me a single game where you did good doesent make a tank good you know.
