Why is that long 90mm so damn derpy? MIssing alot of aimed shots which leads to frustration which makes me want to shoot another shot (not preserving reload). I havent unlocked the turret, tracks, best engine yet. I keep seeing that this thing is a beast once elited, but my own experience is really putting me down. Do things really evolve that drastically once new turret is unlocked? If so, that is really shitty mechanic from WG side. Any thoughts?

Turret and tracks improve gun handling. It feels pretty good fully upgraded. Tier 9 feels more derpy for sure even though overall it is fantastic IMO.

Tracks improve gun handling? Plse explain how. I've not upgraded tracks on P44 so far as 2 degrees extra traverse didn't seem worth it.

Upgraded tracks improve hidden/soft stats that you can see at tanks.gg

In this case they improve dispersion/gun bloom while moving and turning the tank from 0.19 to 0.17

I just unlocked the Panterra, had enough free ex for the top gun then went to the turret. It's not a bad tank. Should I go for engine or track upgrades first?

 

Also another question, I enjoyed the Panther at t8, how far is the panterra fully upgraded from it?

I've got the latest engine but not the tracks yet, and as of now, it's a GREAT tank.
I'm running it with rammer, optics and Vstab, and it's a fun tank.

 

The engine make it quite a lot more mobile. I'll tell you what changes as soon as I'll get the tracks.

the gun does not seems too randomic, but, as all guns, it has his own quirks at long range. At medum range it's fantasti though. And the 3 shots loader it's the best thing after ice cream.

 

What's your crew skills? I've decided to use the crew from p.43 Ter, and now I'm at almost 100% of the first specialization ( sixth sense and camo for the other 3 ), but I'm open to debate. :D

Still lacking upgraded tracks and both engines, but oh boy this thing is fun! Already aced it too!

Its rather meh when stock, but the top gun and turret transform this into a whole different beast. Armour is almost paper though, so handle with care.

Fully upgraded P.44 Pantera is an awesome tank... And although I love Progetto 46 (and think it is one of the best tier 8 premiums), I think that Pantera is in fact a little bit better tank overall when it comes to it.

 

1. Shell velocity: P.44 Pantera's ammo has a shell velocity of 1.050 compared to Progetto 46's 929 m/s shell velocity. Also, Pantera can carry 15 more rounds and a half a second longer interclip reload isn't as hampering as one might think... You are still able to do more damage in those 5 seconds than any other tier 8 medium meaning you can trade 240 recieved damage for 720 caused damage (if you are careful and know what you are doing)

 

2. Engine power: P.44 Pantera has 1,000 HP engine with power to weight ratio of 22,22 and top speed of 60 km/h. Compared to Progetto that is 348 HP more, 3,59 hp/t better than Progetto and 5 km/h better top speed.

 

3. Troll turret: Although P.44 Pantera's turret armor isn't godlike, 120/60/60 is enough to grant you with some troll and unexpected bounces. Especially because your turret sides are extremely well angled and sloped and they are automatic bounce if hit there.

 

All in all, P.44 Pantera when fully researched fills a lot more nimble than Panther II for example, or T-44, T-44-100 and it can easily keep up with most of the higher tier mediums and some light tanks, enabling you to get to the position fast and also to get out of the trouble fast.

Three marked this today and have to say I quite like it. Even if the Progetto looks better on paper, I feel like I'm doing much better on Pantera.

 

The biggest downside compared to Progetto is the intra-clip reload (2,5s vs 2s) and that is huge. But other than that, I really don't think I'm missing anything by playing Pantera instead of Progetto. In fact it has armor that works sometime and it is very agile. For some reason this combination outweighs the DPM based on my track record.

 

I would highly recommend all of the tier 8+ Italians, even after the nerfs.
