Sounds interesting and your description of the tank makes look like it's s formidable vehicle but then again I remember how you described the new RA gr8 of British light tanks and how you forgot to mention how utterly out classed they were compared to all the wheeled vehicles.

So I shall reserve judgement over this tank until have seen from some of the "forum experts"

"A force to be reckoned with" :o

This tank is a piece of thrash, you forgot to mention the absolute horrible hidden gun stats this tank has, bad mobility, bad armour, turret front is way worse than the typical Russian tier 8 premium heavy. Only consider buying it if the amx 65t is your favourite tank.

I use vertical stabilizers, gun laying drive AND vents just to get a somewhat decentplayable gun on my black market version.

Isn't trying to sell this about as irresponsible as trying to sell the CDC and Panther 8.8? :hiding:

Used to be one of my favorites in ancient times. Now it is SO forgotten by WG, that I would need an archeology expedition organized, in order to unearth it from the dust in my garage.

Do not buy. Way out of date for current meta.

Think not, because mediums have mobility going for them, and better gun handling.

I have it from the black market (worth every penny spent) :trollface:. This thing is a little bit too slow, gun is interesting, but I agree it falls behind the current meta and you cannot react in time. Anyways it is a defensive tank and should be played as such. :B

Ah yes, the tank that time forgot!

 

Don't spend your money on this premium as it's still balanced according to how WoT was back in 2012. 

You have atrocious DPM, horrible gun handling and the mobility of the Titanic on a shingle beach, for no good reason.

 

Until this one is made competitive, that is to say at least 1800/1900 DPM base and vastly increased P/W and gun handling, it's simply not worth any amount of money over 10EUR.

It's because they're still using 2012 descriptions. they're not updating tree tanks to follow the meta, let alone old premiums (is6 i miss you a lot), a tank description is way way too much effort.

Well, it's not good tank, got it from black market and... well - this used to be my signature:

 

"
@WG, please buff T34 USA heavy tank and prove us there's no Russian bias. :hiding:

 

Improve rate of fire from 4 to 5, damage from 400 to 440, aim time from 3.2 to 2.4, dispersion from 0.28 to 0.22 (moving, tank traverse) and from 0.22 to 0.15 (turret traverse), ammo capacity from 34 to 40, improve engine power from 810 to 875 and terrain resistances to 1.1 (H), 1.3 (M), 2.4 (S), increase tank and turret traverse to 28, improve armor of turret roof from 38mm to 44mm and armor above gun from 203 to 223, increase armor of turret "cheeks" slightly. This way it would be hybrid between heavy tank and tank destroyer. Thanks. :great:

"

 

So yeah, this tank IS BAD. Do not buy it. If they would buff it as to levels I'd like, it would be closer to T-103 soviet TD - and we all know that tank is not popular. Even with "my" buffs tank would be just average by todays standards.

Have you tried the CDC? Gun handling kills the tank because you need to sit exposed for 3 seconds to aim, not fully aimed is a certain miss in the CDC.

do NOT buy this tank, unless wg will be kind and give it some significant buffs, not like they did last time , when they buffed the dispersion during turret rotation from 0.24 to 0.22...
