I've heard mixed reviews about this tank. Is it worth it?

I would like it  - because it may be a unique tank. I may try and get both of them

That is why I am grinding my socks off. The first few FL moments I couldn't play due to surgery, and the next two I am at sea. So I have to grind the ones I can play like hell. :P

Vs the standar Emil I it's not bad. It has more ammo, faster intra reload and aim time etc. But second or two longer clip reload. But it's still rather flexible.

 

I enjoyed mine on FL. Only played one random battle. But I've had some interesting results on FL vs the Emil I after the buffs it got. Tbh I kinda like the 51 more. As the speed difference is not that much of a downer that it kills it. Nor have I noticed the 50mm armor over the gun vs the Emil I. As this has the gun on the manlte centered. Not placed at the top like on the normal Emil. Not sure if tank.gg is wrong with that 50mm lane vs the 250 on the Emil I, as I've not been hit there, or seen to many other Emils to test on.  Do I did get penned there instantly when I aimed up on a reload like I do on the Emil I. But the gun that hits me gets 250 pen on a 25% high roll.

You could test it in a training room  .

If you don't enjoy Frontlines, I doubt grinding for it would be worth your time. But if you meant buying it, I guess trying the Emil 1 first will give you that answer. They are very similar.

Well I think it is better since from the reviews I watched it is significantly faster than Emil 1. That's all it takes for me to say it is worth it. But I have lost interest in the game and FL. At first I completed 2 levels in episodes 1 and 2. Then I completed 2 more in episodes 3 and 4. Now I am at tier 15 to level 7 and I can't get myself to play even one more game. The entire game has become boring and not really worth it. I would rather spend my extra time doing anything other than WoT.

But back to the topic, I'd say it is worth it. Looks decent to me.

Wtf man? Have you uploaded a replay of that battle? It might be the highest damage in a tier 8 tank.

FL, not randoms. It's a bit different when you have 30 tanks to shoot at, and can respawn if you get taken out.

After a good number of battles I finally found my feeling to play the tank.

Surely it is not the most competitive premium tier 8 autoloader of the game but it can give satisfaction.

I made some good matches both in the random and in the FL mode, reaching also damages greater than 10k with only this tank and about 4k in the randoms.


Obviously the gun depression must be exploited and the turret otherwise it is a totally useless tank, the gun unfortunately has a long aim time and a quite high dispersion both from standstill and in movement.

 

However, the dispersion of the gun is compensated by the fact that the vehicle shoots APCR as standard and as special ammunition and the shots are faster and more precise.

Mobility is excellent but the visual ray is truly pathetic and this often means that it is not able to spot opponents in solitude.

It can be an excellent support heavy tank and an excellent vehicle to defend certain positions and keep opponents in check.

 

Obviously it avoids excessive camping as not being very armored the arty causes you enormous damage and the long recharge time and the DPM so low can make you very vulnerable in many situations.


It is not an exceptional vehicle but it is not completely to be thrown away and above all it is a free premium tank and therefore it is worth having it in the collection.

 

Personally I equipped it like the t57 heavy

Fans, v-stabilizer and gun laying system + combat rations

 

This makes me sacrifice the visual radius of the tank but gains on the statistics of the gun , aim time , dispersion , reload time and DPM.

Somehow I managed to grind it already....

And I suppose its a carbon copy of the Emil I - It can be fun but this gun.... Its terrible. That gun makes you like the handling of WZ-111 and 112 guns.
