Should I keep on grinding? Will I be rewarded with paradise after all the suffering, 12 virgin female crew members, an eternity of good rng? 

 

Seriously WG this tank needs a bit of love... it goes against t34-85, cromwell, t25, etc. It is really punishing, and I've played trough the blackprince.

All it needs is to have an effective power to weight, and top speed that don't take 5 hours to get up. As they said it was due to the armor it was not that mobile. But the armor doesn't even work vs tier 6 guns. So I really don't see the need for it to be that slow. You see 25 more so then 50 on it. 

 

I had more than enough free XP to skip it. But thought I would save it and struggle past it. It's not a bad tank on some maps or in some roles. But the matches I did feel it was fine was few and far between. Tier 7 is worth it tho.

I find myself free XP-ing more and more stuff nowadays.

The other day I found myself trying to free XP from Grille 15 - where to? :)

If you spam gold its not that bad. :hiding:

 

One of the few tanks i didnt mind doing it in.

Nothing good about it really. A tank easily forgotten.

Tier VII has been good so far.

Personally, I free exp'd all the modules, and played battle for the exp to the next tank.

It took me almost 60 battles to get the 45TP unlocked.

My stats in it? 54% WR, 791DPG, 1.5k WN8, 1st MoE.

 

Tank isn't bad per sé, just too slow to dictate the flow of combat.

If you want a tier 6 MT with a big bangstick, go for either the P.43 Bis or even better, the VKP.

Not a keeper imo.

I bounced an O-I's 150mm AP shell off my 40TP's frontal armor and killed him afterwards.

 

Take whatever you want from that...

 

It's got better frontal armor than a KV-1! Remember that, and you'll see that apart from the appalling mobility it suddenly ain't that bad.

TP45 is absurdly OP, traverse, armor, damage... all ridiculous for a T7 tank. Very strong if you're good at angling and picking fights. It snaps like god, usually hits the middle of the reticle even on large aperture, like KV1 and the likes.

I started grinding the Polish and Italian lines when I got back to the game. Also didn't have any free exp so I played the 40TP ... stock.

One of the most painful experiences I can remember. It's a joke.
And armor? I got full penned by Lefh arties when they hit me in the side and LTs penned me through my front regardless of how I tried to angle.

My FCM 50t has an armor efficiency higher than the 40TP.

I dunno about my armor efficiency, but my results in it are good...also got better WN8 than the other Poles, (tier 6-8) by a lot.

 

 

It's decent! You played it stock you say? I think the top turret had better armor, but I'm not 100% sure...

 

Edit reason: forgot the picture... :facepalm:
