Why aren't there anyone talking about how useless the Pershing is compared to this (and basically all t8 premium meds)? Almost as if everyone just accepted the fact the premium tanks have to be better than their techtree counterparts. T8 MM is so f*ckd up because of all these stupid premium tanks, and it just makes me so angry to see people casually discuss how good or bad this premium tank is compared to other prems, while this tank could literally roflstomp the Pershing.

 

And? It is what it is, there are loads of rubbish tanks on tier 8, some of them premiums and reward tanks (CDC, Panther 88, IS-5, T95/Chieftain etc.) if you start balancing tanks to tanks like that then you are just going to add to the more rubbish premiums.

 

This thing might be better than a Pershing, but it's not better than a Defender, Progetto, VK 1001 P, T-44-100, IS-3, Skorp G, Caernarvon etc. so that is why people won't raise issue with it. What's the point of a premium balanced with a the Pershing right now? It would just be a giant waste of money, that ship has sailed, the power bar for tier 8 was raised years ago. There are clearly a set of very strong tier 8 premiums and the odd tier 8 tech tree tank that are a level above everything else right now and quite correctly people want to know if something they are going to buy is going to be able to compete with them.  

 

We can only hope that eventually some of the older underpowered tanks get buffed to decent levels, but at least with the Pershing you can grind through it quickly, get the good Patton and never have to play it again. My CDC, Panther 88 etc. just gather dust in the garage and are completely useless.

 

Plus WG have said some tanks in a tech tree are pretty much deliberately poor to encourage people to free XP past them.

Not worth it. Better have a LT-432 , Progetto mod 46 or Skorpion.

Not really impressed, armor in not really viable (even the turret), mobility is OK, it will get you where you need fast enough, the gun is classic American that misses for no reason, but it aims fast, it's generally OK but not something spectacular.

The only downside to this new tank seems to be lack of camo, the penn and armour layout looks too over the top to me in comparision to many of the other t8meds

If anyone is planing on buying this tank, do the Tank Reward missions and get a coupon for discount. You can apply it on this offer ;) 

Just got my first one, for 10% and it works. Still haven't pulled the trigger, probably will once I get the 20% off one :)

Hummed and Hawed for a few days and finally bit the bullet

 

Its a medium and over priced by about 8 bananas IMO

 

...but I do like my mediums...

 

What got me thinking seriously was one in my TS5 sights for 30 seconds, there was a lot of pink and red on the sight, got him through the lower plate and the side of the turret but anywhere except the lower plate was a hit/miss

 

Mobility is like the 5/1, very medium but it goes ok, not great, ok

Gun is ok and it stings, its pretty reliable

I seem to be able to sidescrape but its early days, I may have been lucky

It has very high ammorack and engine module values

 

Cammo totally sucks, with 4x100% + vents and BIA its 21%

 

It definitely has potential and can be used for assault purposes, you get a lot of bounces if you don't rush, bounced 1500 playing peek a boo with an obj 263

With the horrific MM WoT currently gives us you can wander off and have your own game with this one

 

Of course we're in the honeymoon period at the moment

I like it

Did anyone actually notice the TL-1 LPC is actually a T95E2 with a bit different add-ons like headlights, no cupola MG and sideskirts? Otherwise it's basically the same model.

The tanks is a T95E2, but basically a way better version, is something being done for T95E2 owners? 

 

 

This is a question the WG staff that visit the forum seem to have trouble answering.

Shocking that, but its why I didn't buy the tank.  

 

Usually am a serial premium buyer but have passed on the last 4 premiums now I think for various reasons like that.

Little Late getting here, but if I recall, someone pointed out it's a Perfect Trainer for the T69 and T54E1.....       

 

Now, bear in mind that's if you plan to keep the Crew Intact AND you're Training Newer Crs....    I'd say if you're Commanders are Done with all their Regular Duties, it's the Perfect Place to do some Pick Up work and get the other Skills for other Tanks, ala Sherrif Level Crews.....

To long reload, aim time and bad dispersion. They need to fix this and the tank will be ok.

Seems ok but not really played mine enough to judge if I'm honest. Better than the Pilot for me but I guess it's down to the individual. 

That camo though had to go. I could live with it black and even the decals but the instruments just spoiled it for me. If there had been some proper stuff in the basket behind the turret (which is what you look at most of the time), it would have been manageable but as is, just no.

Incidentally, I bought mine with the 20% off because frankly, it's a bit rich anyway and the Offspring weren't THAT cool and it was a LONG time ago.

I think it will come into its own in FL

Can cope with randoms too, nice to punch holes in tier 10s with relative ease

 

Got a huge total DPM of about 18000
