You get a 5 sec reload with Rammer.

So it will be good at permanent tracking opponents, an asset that is rarely mentioned but rather powerful. 

Accuracy of .31 makes it possible to do so at 100m range.

 

I'm sorry, are you trying to say that accuracy is a relevant statistic in this game anymore? *Laughs in British*. :D

Looks like a worse turret than cents typical 254 face. Minimum 230ish next to the gun.... I’m not seeing a good reason to play this over the cent5/1 really...

Well I would welcome a Marathon (dependent on mission conditions of course). Anything to try and motivate me to play the game.

 

Just acquired the T-34 Shielded today, apart from weekends I played the absolute bare minimum to achieve this. Some days literally one game, mission done, log out.

For someone who used to absolutely love WoT and used to play for hours, the fact I just wanna get out of the game asap shows me that a lot is wrong with your game.

Armour is worse on flat, but more useful in bottom tier games due to relying on angles rather than raw flat thickness.

4202 is much better in uptiered games than Centurion style turret.

Looks pretty decent. A slightly more mobile caern something that would have pushed the regular t8 to op-status, plus possibly a better turret? Though at the cost of some alpha and quite a bit of dpm which defined the tech three tank. All depends on how well the turret performs.

Nice. Was kinda hoping they would do that to the Polish HT since the tech tree was around the corner and they had sold a few already. But I'll take that over it tbh. Pleasant suprice. Wonder if the missions will be on pair with the Italian one etc. Or if they will try something new. 

 

.....yeah first sell it and than make a marathon......Thats some BS.

The previous version, maybe. The current version, fully upgraded with the 32-pounder gun, has 280 alpha.

The point is its not something new.

Hmm, at last a 20pdr armed tank that i might enjoy! If you pimp it up with a good crew and equipment the reload goes down to 4.9 seconds.
To compare it with the Patriot the gun gets 410 more DPM, much better base accuracy and soft stats(except when turning the turret) and the same aim time.
Definitely a good tank to have, if i play enough to get 70% or more discount i will get it.

Alpha is king,  not DPM

I'm close range combat accuracy is useful. Like 100m or 150m engagements.

On these ranges accuracy can mean a certain track and damage while a bad accuracy tank (0.4) can sometimes miss the track and damage shot. 

 

Though I agree that accuracy on a whole is rather useless due to the difference between so called accurate and non accurate tank is to small.
