Hello,

 

I am looking for answer about T-44-100 tank. Is it possible to buy this tank on some events or it will pop up random time on store.. What is the story about that tank? Looking for Russian medium tank for grinding crew xp, and from all tanks I think this is the best tank T8 in Russian tech tree for prem.

 

Thanks

it's a decent tank and it appears in the shop but very rarely, I think originally it was a reward tank for a marathon mission a couple of years back.

I bought it a month or two ago. Think it only comes on sale about twice a year or so...? Expensive AF though...

 

If you want a good Russian MT for crew training get the T-34-85M. Awesome for its tier (even though I UP in it...)

Expensive yes but best premium med ingame IMHO.

you can buy it on special occasions but

Its gonna cost as much as a Tier 8 TD because its a reward tank. Its gonna be around 60~70 $ which makes it not worth the money unless youre fond of the tank or youre a collector

It will pop up eventually at some point in the future.

Solid tank for tier 8, quite expensive though (I guess like the T25 Pilot -which I dont have) cause of the marathon comissions.

T54 proto (I dont have it) must be a quite cheaper and similar alternative.

There is also the Guard, which has more of an obj 416 playstyle (its not bad at all though).

Cheers

T-44-100 proved it's worth during Frontline, it was the tank I most ended getting General rank with. I did the mission marathon for it, and am glad that I did. It is expensive to buy because the mission tokens were so expensive.

huh... just checked the stats on the T-44-100 in comparison to the T-44... better gun handling, better mobility, less effective turning speed, slightly more health.

 

So, yeah, very decent T8 prem indeed.

yeah it is the best one after the recent buff, but then still see's TX and i would rather play my M41 90mm due to those tiers. But if FL comes back, as Zero stated; you can't go wrong

is better than prog 46 and lorr 40t?

 

T44-100 is different type of tenk (jack of all trades rather than paper auto/re-loader), but even so, the burst damage of the other two can be highly effective (I don't have 40t but would like one).

Reason its expensive is coz its a better T-44 due to the stupid overbuffing of the gun handling and other areas that are hidden soft stats. its a upgraded with spaced side armor T-44. powercreep~

The Prog 46 has 212 standard pen, the Lorr 40t even 232 ... that is why both of these MTs have the more reliable damage output in addition to the burst damage, especially against higher tiers.

Thanks to all.. very good answers and info gathered! I will wait to see store price but probably buy it, because it will be my last prem tank, I only need 2-3 for main job silver grinding and FL when it returns  :-) I already have progetto (got it cheap in marathon) and AMX M4 mle.49 with -30% coupon

Often comes up for sale.  However I feel it's more expensive than others due to the way it was bought originally with tokens.   

 

Good tank tho.  Great in Frontline

Just play the regular T-44, it's pretty much like that.

 

But since the over-buff of RU meds last year you can'r really go wrong with any of them, they all got vastly better gun handling now for no reason and also got 250 turret armor because of Reasons (tm ), meanwhile the Pershing is looking quite sad as the "armored turret" medium tank.

It was on sale on one of the other servers quite recently, so it just might make an appearance here, wouldn't surprise me if it came before the new Cent, you can never predict anything with WG and premium tanks, re the new cent, if they had kept the two wheels on the front upper plate as it was in historical photos, I might have been interested as those would provide yet more armour, they haven't so I fail to get excited about it.

My fave t8 med, very good allrounder but an excellent med scout. Its fast enough to flank and pester t10 tanks too. Imo the t54 mod doesnt come close due to speed and inferior ammo capacity. The gun can hit on move feels like the obj 140.

Top tier its OP, it happens very rarely though. The mm has limited its effectiveness a lot.

Its basically the best t8 scout in game.

It was on sale on Christmass I thing, a special offer

It's not bad but i don't like it, maybe because MM and maps

If top tier and a good map, you will easy erase campers from the field, with 2-3 crazy rushers teammates behind you

T 44 100 is one of the best tier 8 meds. I love mine. It`s so nimble and the gun works great. In FrontLine, it was my main tank. I`m sure WG will sell it again so, if you are not in a hurry, I suggest you wait! The tank worth it!

I got it for free from the marathon. It's an ok tank. Not worth the price. If it's not the credits you want, go for the T-34-85M or Rudy or whatnot. Or even Matilda 4. :D
