OK, try again now.  I jiggled some wires around, maybe yours had come loose.

 

Spoiler

 

Played the tier VIII so far, accidentally with the stock gun because I didn't notice it hadn't mounted the middle one because you need the tracks for it and it's really capable even then.  I love the automatic suspension lowering rather than having to push a button to do it.  Just got the top gun thanks to the x5 missions and the extra x3 boosters for premium accounts.

 

Only downside at the moment is six of these on a team all going for the same ridgeline.:hiding:

Having played with the Tier 9 I can safely say that the penetration feels absolutely horrible and is compounded by APCR for both standard and premium rounds as well as the gun handling characteristics. I can't contest even same tier weakspots and I'm averaging something around 10% penetrations for aimed shots taken in the games I've played so far.

 

I love the rest of the tank but with that pen I'll be glad to see the back of it for the Tier 10. It's a real shame.

 they have cool mechanics but their gunhandling somehow feels way too good.......idk what are you doing at wg but why is it always diferent what is in paper than whats reality?? At Wg why are you guys making snapshot tanks one after another???  if i want to play shooter game then i play cod or apex or something else, and not WoT... i loved that WoT needed strategy and time to aim... not aimbot like reflexes like in other shooter games... it wasnt a freaking yolo show like now. srsly the game is becoming more and more what i dont realy like, with the yolo wagen 430u, bobject v4.. the new wheel chairs... git gut.. I feel like the money what i have spent in the game is becoming wasted and i should not buy premium day or even new prem tanks because its doesnt worth, because its already not the game what i loved.....

Perhaps you don't see the problem because a) you haven't played it and b) you didn't read everything I referenced. The standard shells are APCR, the Patton is AP so normalisation will play less of a part. Also, the gun handling and meta exaggerates the poor pen. It is frustratingly bad for me. Perhaps others can make it work but I really dislike how unreliable perfectly aimed shots (even hitting weakspots or the sides or tanks) penetrate in the Tier 9.

Very Nice! Unlocked The tier 8 and loved it right away.

A unique tank and playstyle that offers both challenge and rewards. 

I personally like theese more odd tanks, it has a really Nice mixture of styles that creates this new breed.

i look forward to get The stb too with this suspension. 

The tanks look Great and afe fine as they are.

I would say very gj on this new line wg.

I'm having a lot of trouble trying to use the siege mode in sniper view. Just won't do it.

Me too can sit on ridgeline and suspension depresses gun in normal view and when I switch to sniper mode gun aims high and wont depress?

Siege problem in sniper view is caused by some mod or xvm. Works fine in vanilla client.

The suspension feature doesn't work as stated.  It DOES NOT automatically engage at less than 10Km per hour - it only does when driving that slowly AND YOU DEPRESS THE GUN.  so approaching a ridge slowly does not have the suspension raised - only if you also dip the gun

 

It's crap - you should have the choice to lock it into raised position as a manual selection

Why can't you recruit female crew-members to the new swedish medium tanks? :arta:

 

I was trying with the female crew from Excalibur-campaign. Did not work.

Capture.JPG  I have been really rubbish with it so far. Hope unlocking the main gun might help. Also it messes up WOTINFO stats. Is anyone having this problem too?

The new campers tank of choice.  Another group of waste of space campers who think they are in TDs.  Just what the game needed.

I've noticed on some ridges and rubble piles in cities, that the swedish tanks can see and shoot me but I can't even see their gun barrel. This appears to be quite an advantage to me, perhaps its a camera angle issue but if they have lof on me it would be realistic if I could see the gun. This isn't a VR/spotting issue, its up close.
