Basically the title. 

Is it worth getting prime for this tank? 

While there may be a few shows i'd watch with prime, i'm not convinced yet.

So, i'm wondering how this tank compares to his Peers?

You can often get 7 day trial period for Twitch Prime, so why not try.

 

Or if you can get a Prime Video trial, that is also enough for Twitch Prime.

NO!

 

it's good for it's tier, but you can only use it with an active prime account. As soon as it expires, the tank can not be used anymore!

To be honest if you play WOTs, order about 5-6 things from Amazon in a year, and watch stuff on TV, I think the Amazon Prime is pretty much a 'no brainer' for the price.  Buy the year package and it's slightly more than a pint of beer a month and for the price you get a lot of stuff. 

 

You also get loot for other games as well and can do prime subscriptions to your favourite streamers.

A tier 8 tonk at tier 7 can't be bad

We (Me and the missus) already had Amazon Prime for internet shopping, music, TV and stuff so Twitch Prime cost us nothing as its associated.  The KT© is alright, but if you don't use Amazon Prime and have no wish to, I really wouldn't bother forking out for a Prime account just to get a tier 7 tank mate.

Except you don't even need Amazon Prime.

 

Prime Video is enough, and that usually has a trial period available. I am even now on a trial period for a week so I could claim the latest WoT package. For free.

Just sell the damn thing for gold, to me it seems another cynical money making scheme.

Nothing is worth dealing with Amazon.

They are basically the same and the same price

The tank itself is pretty decent. You have reasonable gun stats, decent armor and not a bad speed for a heavy tank. 
There are cons - you need to position yourself properly to bounce enemy shells. The alpha of the gun is rather small, so you can`t trade shots - it`s more like Tiger I. 

Top speed is nice - but the specific power means it takes time to reach it, and the vehicle doesn`t turn that super fast. 
Still, it`s pretty solid for its tier.

Depends how much Amazon prime costs to you. For Portugal it was 30 euros for year, so pretty much a no brainer, with all the amazon perks.

 

The tank itself is not fun to play, low DPM, a bit sluggish, but you also get a commander each month, discounts on tanks, cammos and other stuff.

It`s because the style represents the look of the actual vehicle once it was captured. The American put only rough markings without painting over the original German camouflage and recognition markings.

I got the discounted trial running. The tank is not bad at all, but the real benefits are care package India and shows on Prime Video.

I got this tiger and really like it. For me against tier 7- very good, tier 8 - so so and I'm totally useless against tier 9's in it.

 

I would buy it if it was sold but properly wouldn't get prime just for the tank.

 

Another nice bonus is the monthly mission that comes with the deal.

It's a VK4503 with less mobility and a better armor, you trade a sniper for a brawler.

And it trains US crew.

 

About prime video it's ok, I wish there were not so many vids that can't be seen in EU : we lost LOST btw ...

i seriously doubt that Americans would leave that insignia unpainted or at least uncovered by their star,....

Not forgetting some very nice crew they have been giving out during the year.
