I don't get it. On the wiki, the gun depression is -6°, yet in the announcement it is highlighted as great gun depression angles.

It's called sarcasm, WG would never mislead anybody on purpose.

"great gun depression angles, which allows you to use hills and ridgelines to your advantage. Paired with amazing spotting range".

 

Seriously? This thing has 6 degrees gun depression, that's belov average even for tier 8 Russian mediums, as most of them have 7 degrees of gun depression.

 

The view range is 370 meters, that's worst among any tier 8 medium. Every other tier 8 medium has at least 380, that's crucial when using optics.

 

Added to that this vehicle feels quite sluggish, has paper hull even on front, gun reload -> DPM is among the bottom of all tier 8 mediums, gun handling is quite bad in general, but somewhat acceptable for it's caliber. Just a tank with combination of features that does not really work very well and would need buffs to view range + (mobility.and/or overall gun statistics, meaning DPM + gun handling + shell velocity). Currently you aim very long and miss half the shots because of relavively inaccurate gun for medium to long range + slow shell velocity. Short range is extremely risky because of terrible DPM.

 

But guess it's the usual WG way, that when there's barely anything good to say about your product, just lie.

Like the look of this tank (Guard variant), but never been tempted to buy.

Funnily enough, not for the litany of flaws already discussed, but mainly because pretty much anything goes straight through the turret!

yes, i agree. i don't understand why don't they give it 380m view range. also, i'm sure if they give it like 200 extra dpm and a little better dispersion during movement and hull rotation + some mobility buffs it would be better without being OP.... but the gun is accurate

Just pure garbage.... From the start... And then even 2 versions of them... Immediate regret when bbought.. misleading advertising to say the least... Needs buffs to be competitive

Had to actually go and check the stats of the gun, because the gun have never really felt accurate for me for some reason. And have to admit I'll stand corrected, 0.33 m dispersion is very good for gun of this caliber. But the dispersion blooming for tank movement and hull turning seems quite bad, so maybe that's the main cause for my problems, as I do not tend to be very immobile in my mediums.

The experience has been very frustrating for me gun wise with this tank, as the aiming time seems very long and often the shots seems to derp all over the place with slow shell velocity, after having long reload. I however have been using the tank to train somewhat new crews to tanks I've been grinding for. I have also been cheap about consumables and been running it without food that I think might be crucial for this tank when the starting statistics for gun handling etc. are so bad. Hopefully the tank gets more enjoyable when I'll finally get the K-91 crew up with the skills and my credit grinding needs for tanks is over for now, allowing me to use it to luxuries like food etc.

But definitely wouldn't mind some buffs to view range, mobility, DPM and possibly gun handling in the move, as currently the vehicle is often just frustrating to play.
