Anyone else like this tank?

I ve got it recently and I love it. Its BIG its UGLY, but its efficient. MM usually with 3-4 tiers or only 4 makes this tank prety awesome. With a gun tier 2 wouldnt last long against tier 5-6 anyway....Of course you have to load premium ammo but I found out that apart from TD and some heavies this tank bounces alot or cant pen at all, and can be pretty frustrating for enemy team  lol. Gun isnt the best fuf fast ROF and decent premium pen makes it ok. 

the drawbacks are(besides the ugly look lol :

-its slow compared to french B2 , though pretty quick for a heavy.

-Stay away from TD and you ll be fine

Hi. It would be almost a fine post except for the gold ammo part. To say its a good tank that must be played with gold ammo means it is not good.

Unfortunately with 55 pen you cant do a thing in tier 3-4 with pen 90 . Even Luchs LT has 95 pen with normal ammo and suffers :(

you can look a bright side , premium ammo costs only 800 credits :),..even it was 2 gold I d use it :)

There's a reason the B2 has very special match making: its gun plainly sucks. If you want to deal with some of the more heavily armoured vehicles found at tier IV, such as the Valentine, Matilda, Hetzer, B1, or even the B2, you either need amazing aiming or outright premium ammo to stand a chance. It also has some significant weakspots, with only DPM to compensate. That's not to say it's a bad tank; it's just that it needs a significant amount of premium ammunition to work 'properly'.

Got mine from WoT Rush card game, was quite surprised.

 

Anyway, armor is great. But you cannot win only with armor, gun has fast reload and aim, but penetration useless vs other armored tanks.
