Hi,

I'm not a tank collector and i was intending to sell it, but when i saw it comes with history camo already applied and it was part of significant history battle i thought about keeping it. I sold all my tier 5 premium tanks i was grinding credits before. Is it worth keeping that one with that awful accuracy?

(Still haven't played a single battle in it) 

Have you played it? Do you enjoy it? How it is compared to regular T-34 and Type T-34...

+better alpha

+better pen

+better armor

+apcr as standard

+more health

-worse speed

-worse dpm

If you are wallet warrior, you dont need it, but if you are f2p(like me), its good tank to have.

I have unicum wn8 and win rate in it, despite being average player

Pretty much this - its just a better T-34

 

I'll keep it for sure.

It's a worst t-34 relax ....

Because of the 3-5-7 MM, (you will se only tier 6-7 tanks that have  150-175-200 pen) so you are auto pen.

To fight high tier tanks you need :

  •  speed
  • view range
  • High pen premium ammo

This tank has less then the standard t-34.

 

 

YOU do the MATh.....

If it had that 57mm gun from tech tree one it would be a keeper, that 76 mm is next to useless.

The only reasons to keep this tank are:

1) If you are a collector

2) If you want a crew trainer for russian meds

3) If you have lots of empty garage spaces and you just don't mind having it there

T5 is not good at farming credit the only good thing about is training crew

It's a bad tank because of the poor mobility, dpm and accuracy and a bad trainer because it lacks of gunner.

The only reason to keep it is as collector. Or as a bad trainer if you don't have the good t34-85m

Useful for the x5 if you have russians med crew, time to do the x5, and not many other soviet prem meds like t34-85 and the others tiers 8.

Why not just play it for a few days if you like it keep it if you don't get rid of it.

You have 500+ games in your Matilda IV. And yes it's a better option then that. As there is more to tier 5 premiums then credits. As it can train crews to "tho not an ideal crew setup for high tier meds on the T-34S"

 

Vs the normal T-34? Well, that depends on if you like high alpha and pen, or the faster pew pew 57mm on your T-34. As vs the T-34 with the 76mm gun. I would say the T-34S is better. If you have the 57mm. Then even with less pen. I would say the normal T-34 beats it with the DPM and mobility bonus. The T-34S trick card is APCR as standard ammo. So it's shell velocity is rather high for a tier 5 med.

T-34-85M is the real gem of low to med tiers

Got myself a T-34-85M recently and haven't touched the T-34S since.

Subjectively, it feels like I actually bounce more often in the Tier 6 tank, and I also feel much more useful in mid and bottom tier matchups. 

Not to mention that it has a dedicated gunner.

I like it a lot. The gun is good enought for a tier 5 med and the extra armour helps a lot sidescraping. I bounced some 150-160 pen shells thanks to them. 

Comapred to the standard T-34, it gives you the chance to use armour and have more HP to trade. A bonus is the gun depression that is quite good. On standard T-34 you get -8 only with the 57mm.

This comes at the price of a worst mobility, even if it's not a lot less.

It's a keeper for me. But I would suggest you to try it out by yourself.

It's quite an OK tier 5 med, and it's another daily double XP for your high tier Soviet med crew, so it's a keeper.

Why don't you play a few battles in it and see for yoursefl whether YOU think it is worth keeping? You might find the tank suits your playstyle and is fun for you to play, whereas, another player might not. What have you got to lose by giving it a try?

Auto pen? I can bounce 1k dmg with normal T34 in some situations.

This tank can side scrape even better, and it also has spaced armor for Pz 4 H, M4, OI exp, arty,....

Er! You will also see T5's and T4's. In fact, as it is a T5, you will see more T5's than you will T6's or T7's.

I have unicum wn8 and win rate in it, despite being average player

 

Well my winrate is redder than a ripe tomato but my wn8 is very unicum... :amazed: Yeah yeah small battle count but this you don't see everyday.
