Besides T20 and maybe KV13 all tier 7 MTs are trash. At least T-43 goes to be T-44 which is great.

It was one of my most favorite tanks. The gun is actually OP at T6. T7 is where it belongs. Decent pen, amazing HE shells, Decent mobility and troll armor against lower tier tanks. What else could you possibly want?

when I last looked, the Chinese tier 7 was probably the worst. Not sure if that's still true.

LOL excuse me what the actual ****?

 

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/

 

I know right?

 

Hands down.

Armour is much much better. And trolls a lot of fire.

I liked my T-43 a good deal. Same gun on a better platform.

I think T-43 is one of the most underrated tanks in the game. Actually it's my favorite T7 medium tank. Nice drive, good dpm, bouncy turret. If we could turn regular tanks into premiums, I would go with it.

T34-1 is a very good tank.

Learn to flank.

 

Sorry, couldn't resist :)

That's the idiocy the forums where filled with years ago when medium players complained the game was unplayable against heavies.

And the game wasn't better back then when trying to go past the first line.

And we had +4/-4.

 

Oh boy, the game is crap nowadays, but we were really out of our mind to support WG over such a long time of incompetence.

  • Battles 76
  • Victories 61,84%

only the top players will make claims at how good it is. I mean look at the stats people proudly display here in conjunction with their comment.  It's a meh tank. Nothing more, nothing less.  Just standard.

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.

 

It's actually worse than the T-34-85M.

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.

 

You need to let that gun fully aim, once you do that it becomes insanely accurate.

It can also snap a little and requires few mods to move to the t8.

T34-1 is a very good tank.

 

Very underrated t7 med.

Will buy again in the future.

 

It's the lowest tiered russian hovermed style tank, and it does not need to sacrifice an equipment slot for vstab.

Its only downside is low-ish dpm, and the fact that the tank just performs way way way better with food.

I loved and I still love the T-34-85 <3. I played T-43 with the same playstyle like T-34-85 but just didn't work

So much BS in this thread, T43 and VK3002D are among the best tier 7 meds by a good margin, i'd say Chi-ri and KV13 are the 2 worst IMO.

All tier VII meds are mediocre at best.

I really liked the T-43 and I think its a pretty solid tank overall. Not shining in any department but its not bad in any either. I would say most tier 7 MTs are pretty decent overall.

When I 3-marked the T-43 it became one of my favourite T7 medium tanks.
I really liked it. Was on the old MM though.

I agree with most of your comments, I strongly disagree on the t34-1, used to be my favorite tier 7 (true, a few years back and true, with an all female crew with 4-5 skills).

Well, "used to be" ain't "now", innit? :trollface: Most of the new nations' meds are better.

 

Nice crew btw.
