580 credits for 390 damage makes for a good earner. Can't say it's all that competitive though and its crew doesn't match the (rather pointless) tech-tree meds (different radioman assignments). 

So it's a cannot recommend.

Big

Paper

Slow reload

Mediocre penetration

 

Gun accuracy is ok, not super though.

 

And that is what a strong French tank means?

Good for earning credits, especially in the wake of black market. If you sit back and snipe (this thing has excellent gun velocity) and hit around 2k damage a game, you can easily earn 1m creds in 15 games or less, especially if you have boosters and a prem account.

Great value with excellent alpha, cheap ammo and shell velocity for a T8 med which are usually some sappy 240 alpha so it feels really nice when you hit and pen targets.

 

I find it less useful and fun these days though and haven't played it for ages. The reason is the somewhat typical T8 pen of 200 has simply become less and less workable as tanks become more and more armored so what you can actually pen during a battle isn't actually a whole lot.

 

Sure, you can switch to it's 250 pen HEAT but in doing so you are 

 

1. burning credits which sort of defeats the purpose of playing this credit grinder with cheap standard ammo

2. Losing one of it's major selling attributes, the 1500 shell velocity APCR standard ammo.

3. Even 250 pen isn't really all that amazing these days and while it's plenty good, it's actually just standard pen for most T8 TD's like a SkorpG.

 

Gun handling is ok, I have a top crew for it though so if I'm finding it ok with a full spec crew with BiA and snap shot etc, I guess it's going to be only so so gun handling when manned by an average crew. It's slow, large and total paper which limits it to a TD sort of ranged supporting role primarily and which means you will be mostly shooting tanks frontally and that's not really all that doable with 200 pen and 250 pen options so ya... while I have a soft spot for the Rev, love how it looks with that big gun and muzzle break, I really can't recommend it as a reliable damage dealer and credit grinder. That being true, I certainly wouldn't say it's a bad tank, it's just armor became too thick in this game over the 12+ months sadly. It's not just a problem for the Rev though to be fair, most T8 premium meds with this sort of pen face this same pen issue but at least some of the other options come with mobility so on non-corridor maps you use your mobility to work around targets and play some sort of semi-light tank fast playstyle, a Rev can never do that it's just way too slow and big a target.

cannot really understand everyone who cries about this tank?

 

it's one of the better prems currently.

there's alot of other worthless s**t that pales in comparison to it.

A bit slow and cumbersome and the pen is lacking but the alpha damage and shell velocity makes up for it. Fun little tank! But it's not forgiving, if you're in the wrong place you die fast...

Even the EBRs are easier to hit with this tank.
On the negative side it gets fcuked over by the MM. 200 pen and more than 10 sec reload is awful in high tier games.
Slow speed makes relocating or running away very hard.

Generally, unless stated otherwise, you should be compensated in gold.
