Just as with any german HT. Sidescrape with cupola in cover (or wiggle turret if no cover available), bait, angle, take shot after enemy's shot. Roll over lesser targets. Alpha is beast for t8 HT, mobility is acceptable. Not bad tank, even tho not exactly the best either.

40mm top plates so tier 6 and 7 122mm guns can HE you to death

 

It's a typical WoT German tank, flawed so the main Russian playerbase can kill it

 

Buy a Defender and put German insignia on it is my advice

Make up your own Defender(Captured)

It's damn strong! Nice pen, beast alpha, can angle and wriggling in the open brings tons of blocked damage. It's also quite fast for a superheavy. Not as noobproof as a defender, but it has far more potential  for a good HT player, IMO.

Good tank but as with any tank with rear mounted turret, you have to be careful with your positioning. In a city, it's a solid tank that can do things. On uneven terrain or open maps, it's hard to play and i believe not very effective. The alpha is good, pen is good on both the standard and gold rounds and i think it's pretty cheap too for a tier 8 heavy.

 

Watch some replays on YT or a stream to see if you like the tank or not. No amount of talking will get you to know how the tank plays.

And you can get -15% ticket from tankrewards.eu which means it costs as much as tier 7 premium.

At the corner is more or less as good as the Lowe, even more so if you hide the cupola at the right side. But like the Lowe, it will punish you if you push in the open vs enemy guns at short range. On FL it was great to farm ranks with it defending, and moving across the wide-open fields vs enemy guns at long range. But less so at close range, the HP drained fast.

 

Was not a bad income machine either for FL.

Just as mentioned by some guys above: 

it is pretty mobile... for a superheavy tank. Not as good as Lowe in this regard. 

Armor has weakspots so hiding them, wiggling and angling is crucial. However, it seems it gets more bouncy at mid ranges unless it`s immobile - there`s much higher chance the enemies will shoot at solid armor and not the weakspots. 

The turret in the back means that you have to play it differently than many tanks and get used to the idea that if you simply go forward you expose your sides before you have a chance to shoot so you can`t ride it just like any other, more conventional vehicle. 

The gun has a massive alpha, coupled with decent accuracy and penetration. However, it`s a very German gun in that you need to aim fully, otherwise the shell will fly in general direction of the enemy. 

Due to the alpha it has a certain fear factor. 

It offers decent earnings and has a good shell price to damage done to credits earned ration. 

 

Overall, Lowe (and not only Lowe) is easier to play but not that many heavies of tier VIII can make you hit the enemy for over 500 to over 600 dmg with one shell.
