i have it, it needs some buffs... like at least 10 extra view range, some buffs to the gun handling and a little better engine and like extra 100 dpm  to be ok.

You would think with all this money they are making,that some improvements in the game might be afoot, I  wouldn't on't hold your  breath though.

 

The tank itself, not bad if your on a level battlefield.

Please give this tank a little buff. It really needs some improvement. Not worth the money in its current state

And it's a tank from the bond shop at that. I reckon they would have sold more units with a better sales timing. Milk game weak.

Dpm is big problem of this tank. Sometimes can bounce iwth turret, good cammo, good alpha damage, decent mobility but a tier 6 tank have more dpm than this.

Obj. 416 is a better looking tank and it has monstrous dpm for 

it's tier, plus 330 pen HEAT rounds!

 

Grind that hidden gem instead of paying for this polished turd!

The DPM totally breaks this tank, you can hide and snipe all you want but as soon as someone gets close to you they will simply out DPM you with autoaim. 
The mobility is a bit on the low side as well. I try to love this tank as it looks great but man......

I considered buying it yesterday for bonds, i thought it was something like a ruski M4 Rev when it comes to gun performance(and i love my Rev), but then i checked in tanks gg... a shame really, it can be a good tank with interesting playstyle if it gets a slight DPM and and gun handling buff, but now it is just good looking and useless.

Guys, this tank has high alpha and as usual with tanks of high alpha it does not get a good dpm. It`s a trade off: you can`t have good alpha, good overall gun and high dpm in one tank, that would be a teeny tiny bit too much. 

Still, personally I`d say it`s simply a well balanced tank, for a specific gameplay that relies on trading shots rather than outgunning and outspamming your enemies.

I traded in my T28 HTC for it as I dislike slow turretless tanks, especially ones with big weak spots. 

 

Everything about it is meh other than the alpha and the pen. This includes relatively poor shell velocity and gun depression (isn't helped by the rear turret layout). 

 

A Revo does the same job better arguably as it has lighting rod like shell velocity and actually can depress it's gun.

Skorpion (while a TD of course) has higher alpha, better reload, better aim, better aimtime, better pen and is faster. Much better DPM

 

Progetto which is an autoreloader has higher base DPM. Better DPM with only using last shell.

 

M4 Rev which has better gun handling, better depression has a whole second faster reload. Better DPM

 

Lansen (which has 320 alpha) has close to 5!!!! seconds better reload. Much better DPM

 

Udes has 360 alpha and 2 seconds better Alpha. Better DPM

 

Heck the SU-130PM has bette reload. Much better DPM

 

Have you tried playing STG @Falathi?

 

Chimera... It has better alpha, better pen, same aim time, better gun handling, better shell velocity, better VR, better depression. STG has better camo and dispersion.
