T25 Pilot. Definitely not a good tank.

Look at the "Tank curves" information.

 

Progetto and Lorraine are much better (and much expensive).

If you like to take different roles on the battlefield, this one is your guy!

 

95% of times I've noticed this tank fills the role of HP pinata for tier 9 and tier 10 tanks.

"reliable 90 mm gun"

192mm of pen reliable on a T8 in 2019?

Thanks for the laugh.

Naaah. This tank is a bad joke. Even worse than KV-5.

one of the most important aspect of US tanks is their turret armor... this tank has none

another one is view range ... this tank has 390 vs Pershing's 400.plus the face it has less engine power and the gun is only slightly more accurate in exchange of shell velocity

as an owner of this tank,i say  it is the worst premium tank i have.get your self a super Pershing . it's way better than this one

My only tier VIII Premium vehicle which I have it.

 

You can play with it in Frontline mode, but you will struggle with that 90 mm gun.

 

You will be forced to use Premium ammo against Defenders and other vehicles with broken armour...

 

Also, accuracy is a joke, so you can't do crap from longer distances...

 

It is slow, so it means you simply can't relocate to other spot very fast.

 

Armour? What armour? It has no armour at all... only turret can bounce some shots if you lucky to hit gun mantlet...

 

In short, don't even think to buy this vehicle, because it's not worth it...

Got the tank back when marathons were good.

Honestly... This tank is a big hit and miss. Mobility is by far not great (probably only good is turret speed), armor is non-existant unless enemy hits gun mantlet (if you're very lucky) and gun leaves wanting more. Probably one of the underpowered premiums currently in the game.

Good when it's top-tier, mediocre in mid-tier, bad in bottom-tier (and since you get a lot of matches like that nowadays, it's not fun).

In Frontline, it's okay-ish most of the time if you play it as a support vehicle, so staying further behind and sniping is a good option... IF your shots hit.

 

Honestly, can't recommend the tank when we have much, MUCH better premium tier 8 mediums. The tank needs some serious buffs, either to mobility (better hp/t, current one feels almost like a heavy style), gun (DPM feels a bit low (even though with all the buffs it is 2.2k), pen is awful though (192 normal/240 gold, so pretty much 0 chance to pen Types frontally to "weakpoints" ) but ironically it's the same problem to most tier 8 mediums), or both.

I wouldn't recommend it for reasons pointed out above. Let the price guide you somewhat. The T25 is €28 while the Progetto is €40. That says all you need to know and while all tier8 tanks are equal in regards having leveling ingredients that balance(lol) some are a little more equal than others. 

 

I had this tank and traded it for an M4 Rev. Actually if we take a look at the Rev we can see it's around the same price as the T25, a little bit cheaper actually. Both are slowish compared to the more fleet footed T8 premo meds and both have practically no armor. So they're about the same and both no worth the money or bothering with right? Wrong.

 

Let me put their difference to you as a question, keeping their slowish speed and no armor in mind, would you A. like a depressingly ineffective 240 alpha single shoot with slowish shell velocity that really forces a more close quarters and regular exposure of your paper tank to try and rack up meaningful damage or B. a meaty and telling 390 alpha jaw breaker that can 1 shot ammo rack 100% hp lower tier tanks along with rail gun light speed shell velocity as standard which gives this tank a ranged sniper ability, punish even fast targets like wheeled tanks along with being an effective supporting tank from the back against higher tier opposition? I think you now see which is by far the better value for the same money.
