Just bought this tank tho i have had it researched a while..Not looked into cammo values etc but..

 

With a 45 second reload it screams out for a rammer ..tho as i only have a 2 skill crew in it (All cammo/6th first skill then Snapshot/Clutch braking/cammo 2nd skill) i feel like i want to put vents in it till

i get smooth ride/Sit awareness and at least some Snapshot?..

 

Got Optics/Vert stabs and vents at the moment so not sure what to lose for the rammer??...any help and thoughts is appreciated.

 

 

PS looking forward to playing it as it reminds me of the old 1390 with +3 mm with that 6 shot gun:)

 

 

How do you play yours?

It cannot mount a gun rammer like most autoloaders. So I would stick to vstab, vents and optics.

Why not toolbox, cyclone filter and spall liner to make it truly OP.

 

Without kidding though, take automated fire extinguishers, that thing catches fire A LOT.

How do you play yours?

 

I moved from vertical stab/gun laying drive/vents combo to dropping vents for coated optics.

i run it with optics/vstab/gld

 

basically, you have to decide between vents and gld(the other 2 are more or less mandatory).

 

With vents you shave ~1.5s(if memory serves me right) from reload time. Which, well... kinda meh if you ask me. Not that gld is some awesome piece of equipment either, but I prefer gun handling improvements to anything else on this one(ran it both with vents and with gld, I prefer it with gld). Imo, you need all the help you can get in gun handling dept. because reload takes a century, gun handling is mediocre, so missing shots is costly.

 

running food is dubious; not that I was set on fire too often in 1k battles, but when I switched to food... bam, 2 fires in 10 games. Might be bad luck, but any configuration without extinguisher seems risky. Also tried to run with 2 repair kits and no extinguisher(as you can get tracked + engine and I'm too cheap for big repair kits) - again, was set on fire often. Otoh, when I have extinguisher on, I'm almost never set on fire; life... :P

Just played 2 games in it both a BAD loss..

 

First game i notice it has zero traverse compared to the 1390 (Am i wrong) when playing active scout on prok..

 

2nd game i get tracked/Fire then full ammo rack all in 6 seconds (ish)

 

 

Not too sure whether to play aggressive/active as i was... or play opportunist trying to look for targets to unload that clip on??

 

 

V/R seems not too good even with optics?...am i wrong?? (Must check cammo values...got outspotted by an E3 static Probs with bino's)

Im guilty of running food in all my lights as i feel they need it.

 

Got large med kit/Food and large repair kit in it as im willing to put up with a dead commander more than i am a tracked/dead tank (At least till i get some repair skills?):unsure:

Don't waste your credits on the GLD, it's quite possibly the most worthless module around. It doesn't work when you are either moving your tracks or turret, so pointless on a highly mobile light/medium. It's only good on thing like arty and stuff like the Kv-2.

Stick to the Optics, Vents & Vert Stabs combo

Works quite decently on slow TD's as well.

The only Td I use it on is my ISU-152, other than the SU-152 can't really think of any others it would be needed on, especially over the the Binocs/Optics, Vent/Camo-Net & Rammer combo.

I ve found that in auto loaders with "bad" gun handling ,they perform very well in combination with the vertical stabilizer plus snap shot and smooth ride skills.

I also use the combo in Skoda t50/51 and Emil 2.

Yeah, the viewrange is pretty poor, the camo is not good, especially not when coming from the bc12t and being used to the 13 90. Every other shot seems to ruin your engine or set you on fire, to the point where I almost considered taking two repair kits in it. Basically, it's just a pretty bad tank you need to get through to get to the batchat... It's literally the first tier 9 grind I didn't like.
