very good tank especially with vents+stab+layingdrive, peek your shots faster so enemy has no time to deliver dmg back. when driving backwards behind the hillridge cover the cupola with your gun barrel by shake shake shaking

Must be playing it wrong because it's a beauty of a tank. Stop expecting it to bounce stuff, it's Japanese not Russian.

Don't get shot at, it's not that hard.

Yeh, not soviet at all! :trollface:

Its turret has been buffed recently, before that it was paper. Now it can bounce sometimes here and there, but don't expect to be another Centurion AX. But honestly, what did you expect after the Japanese meds' line? STB-1 is the most bouncy among them, you should be positively surprised. It doesn't have that horribe cupola like Type 61 and that turred is much smaller and the shape allows some bounces. My only problem with it is that it is not a Type 74. :(

cmon, just gitgud :D both type 61 and stb-1 are epic after buffs they recieved, one of my favorites for some epic high tier dmg farming :) in fact only one tank has higher dpg than my stb-1 and its 279e :D from tech tree tanks stb-1 is the best med that i have ever played, absolutely love it, same as type 61, both strong tanks.

The only bad thing about STB-1 is that arty totally wrecks it.

I still prefer the old STB over the 'new and improved' version.

The nation imho could sure use some love, more lines etc. As discussed often on this forum. Refreshingly different kind of game style. Dynamic lt line, TD line and a second heavy option . Even newer premiums too.

I'm planning to get this tank, and mate, having -14 on this tank don't actually mean that it has turret like udes 15/16! You still can block some shots but don't expose your turret for long time so enemies don't find time to fully aim at you.

Gl!

Splash.

Had a game on Abbey few days back where I bounced 2400 HP from a TP60 and IS7. They must have been fuming.

For me a TX med needs to be useful/reliable either in CW or randoms and i feel the STB isn't therefore i won't buy it.

I must just be laughing on someone who is going for tier X tank and cannot find any information about it, especially armor before buying it and then crying on the forum how it is bad xD In the time of internet and youtube where you can see tons of reviews on anything. This is beyond me, really.
