Just got a pop up for early access to the Loza Sherman, not a BiA crew but a 100% perked sixth sense commander.

 

"A Sherman fighting for the Soviets under the command of Dmitry Loza. With a similar gameplay to the American original, this tank performs best in hilly terrain. Only show your tough turret and chip away at the enemy's HP. Next to the Sherman you'll also get Dmitry Loza as the commander with the perk "Sixth Sense" plus a crew for the tank. It's time to write history yourself!"

 

Euro 15.35 for the standard package.

Yeh had the same but don't see much point to it, it's basically an Easy8.

 

T-34-85M or Rudy are way better trainers and you don't even get a special crew. 

 

Which IIRC the Thunderbolt and Tiger 131 both got, they got free-BIA crews so were worth it just for that, but this is a normal crew with the commander with sixth sense.

It seems...horribly useless and pointless. Literally only purpose is to have another piece for collectors.

 

It's basically flat out outclassed by the Rudy, which in return is outclassed by the T-34-85M, if we dont count the BiA crew that comes with the Rudy (and the doggo!).

Is the sixth sense a free perk or does ist count as the first perk?

Except it's russian. Expect massive buffs to make sure it's better than all other Shermans in game.

In terms of other premium medium Sherman specials it's faster but less armoured. Also the last thing I need is another Russian commander with sixth sense.

 

Might be appealing to some of the players coming back or joining for 1.0 though?

If it's not bundled with the Defender, thanks, but no thanks.

Saw a platoon of them a few battles back. They all hated it vs the Rudy or even the T-34-85M and said it's not worth it. It's a crappy Easy 8 as they put it. Same DPM, but they did notice the less engine HP. It broke down constantly if you got hit head on. And the mobility is worse off, so the extra top speed is not worth it as it's engine is way weaker one said. As my Jumbo even drove past them at speed on the soft terrain, as they did bleed lots of speed when turning I noticed. 

 

I have 6 premium Russian meds. So I'll skip this one. It's a collectors tank. And I suspect we won't see many of them in a few weeks time.

It's not in the Premium Shop, maybe WG have targeted the gullible players? :trollface:

It's funny T34-85M is so OP, it makes even Rudy look mediocre... when Rudy is also pretty darn good.

A soviet crew trainer. How original.

M4 is a little nasty tonk when coupled with its derp gun. It has faily decent armor and turret for its tier. 

remove the gun, reduce the armor and you get a fairly "blah" t6 medium.

That's World of Tanks in a nutshell I suppose. But hey, bots casuals are going to pay more in short term and in a year or two when people grow tired of it we get a promise of 2020 being "the year of fixes" and IS-6 will get 20mm armor buff on every plate. :)

The only reason why M4 is any good is because HE mechanics are broken and it's a tier 5 tank so you mostly play against bot level players who are stock grinding who don't even have 6th sense.

At least it's a Russian tank that isn't OP!

 

No idea what they were thinking though, 5 hp/ton less than the Easy8 and worse gun depression as well, slightly faster top speed you can't reach easily doesn't compensate for that.

 

The Thunderbolt is a much much better buy if you want a premium Sherman at tier 6.
