I have come to the conclusion that T-43 is nothing more than a tier 7 T 34-85 that has more hitpoints, a little better armor and a little better dpm.

The gun is the same as in T-34-85 and can't penetrate most of Tier IX tanks with AP shells and the APCR shells aren't any better.

I think they should bump its penetration more since most of tier VII tanks have at least 210 mm of penetrations on premium rounds not 190 like this *edited.

the average tier 7 MT pen isnt that high tho, near every one of them has issues penning tier 9 so thats not an issue of t43 alone

 

so far my experience i would take t43 over panther/skoda/kv13/chiri/panther m10. anyways slap some boosters on and keep grinding, t44 is pretty amazing

It was my second tier 7 tank. Considering how tomato trash I was at the game, it must be  quite forgiving for new players.

T-43 isn't even that bad. It just feels like that, simply because of the T-34-85 being so good.

There are 12 tier 7 medium tanks from all nations, not counting premiums. Six of those have more than 200mm of penetration on their gold rounds. The maximum being 250mm HEAT on a much crappier platform called the T-34/100.

 

Now what can a Comet, for example, do with 208mm that a T-43 can't with its 194mm? Not much i guess against hard tier 9 targets. Better to avoid those and use your DPM on something softer and of lower tier.

 

It's not an amazing tank but it's more like general purpose, it can do a lot in the right situation.

LOL excuse me what the actual *edited?

 

The T-43 is up there among the best tier 7 meds, together with the Leo w/105 and and the Konštrukta T-34/100.

 

There are far worse tier 7 meds that come to mind, such as the T-34-1, Chi-Ri (sorry Nishi), and A-44.

 

Here, sort my tanks by WN8 or WR, T-43 is 4th by WN8 with 74.29% WR, Leo is just below 3k. https://www.noobmeter.com/player/eu/PervyPastryPuffer/513969842/

Naw man, T-34-100 has alpha at least. I kinda liked it. Although I've liked all tier7 mediums I've played.

It is not. I've used the howitzer and I had tons of fun with it. Max I've done was 3k dmg, with a howitzer :)

yep that one, although I played it 6 or 7 years ago when it had 130mm pen and mobility of oil tanker,but still 39% win rate is abysmal

I like my T-43 quite a bit and did for sure not find it weak, haven't played it in a while but apart from Jap HT's not much have changed that would change my opinion I think.

The VK 30.02 (D) these days is a monster, one of the best tier 7's I've ever played:

 

Still grinding the crew as well so I can only see it getting better.

I guess it depends on your playstyle, but I found it's inability to both snipe and snapshot absolutely horrendous. It's decently mobile, and the gun hits okay if it decides to hit, but it just misses way too much (even close range) to rely on anything. Add to that the 5 degrees of gun depression and it's an okay platform for a gun I personally absolutely cannot work with.


Overall I quite liked the tier 7 grinds, but I guess I just hate terrible aimtime, medium alpha tanks like the t34/100 and t-20.

It's AP pen is actually rather high vs other tier 7 meds. As some are even below 150. It's gold pen is smack in the middle for a tier 7 med. Sure some have way more. But some have way less too. So count your blessings either way considering the meta.
