Wargaming...please do something about this tank. It's gun handling is a nightmare. Even though it's accuracy is 0.34 I managed to get a lower hit ratio than with tanks that have 0.4 accuracy. And I also checked...this tank has one of the lowest win ratios of all the T9 meds...

It takes forever to aim...and then BOOM ...MISS.

Mobility wise the tank is barely decent. This is very strange considering it doesn't have armor.

Is it just me or the shot dispersion within the aim circle is one of the worst of all tanks? less than 50% of the shots land around the middle and the rest to the far middle of the circle.

I know the armor is a joke and this is supposed to be a support tank....but that *edited* commander's cupola is 50% of the entire turret and people manage to hit it 70% of the time from 300-500m. And you cannot not expose it as it is enormous.

 

On paper this tank is decent but in reality this tank just SUCKS.

I have it and I really like it.

 

But yes, I agree about it's accuracy.

 

Main 105 mm cannon is really unpredictable.

 

Sometimes, most of the shots miss it's target and sometimes you can get some really weird hits...

 

But in general, I like Type 61 and I will keep it.:P

Actually, it is not bad. Not as good as t-54, but for me its the 2nd best WR for t9 meds. And I actually liked it. I think, t9 meds are more about personal play style then their stats. My black sheep is Leopard A , while many players like it a lot.

In fact, two of your best performing tanks are pretty much my worst performing tanks. And vise-versa.

It is the weakest tier 9 medium for me along with the chinese one. I would advice using vert stab, ventilation and gun laying drive to smooth it out a bit.

It will still be bad after this, at least the T10 has a good rate of fire (the missing all the time pattern continues though).

That must be why I've never heard of it.

It’s one of the worst T9’s in the game honestly and it does need a buff yes

I quite like it but the lack of armour does get old. I don't generally have a problem with accuracy although it doesn't have Obj 252U accuracy, i.e driving at full speed, full bloom, snapshot a moving target at full speed from 400m.

I really liked the tank back then it came out, I havnt got any "achivments" with that thing, but I still liked it. The only bad thing I still remember is, that it had praticlly no armour, not even the gun mantle

Your typical jack-of-almost-all-trades paper tank. Good second liner and a tank with nice gun elevation - though that gets harder to work with patch by patch

it is the worst tier 9 med by a long way. i can't fathom how WG have ignored it for so long and it isn't like you are being punished at 9 for the excellent tier 10

 

i unlocked it about 6 months ago but have never seen any reasons to play it.

 

from VBaddict (all out of 15 tanks)

 

tank spotted - 14th

survival rate - 15th

winrate - 15th

accuracy - 13th

pen rate - 7th

damage dealt - 11th

kills per battle (pointless stat) - 14th

exp earned - 15th

There is not a single good japanese medium tank, no reason to grind anything really.
