When an STA-2 is born, it possesses a gift or two.

Decent tank. Not anywhere close to the Progetto though. Needs a good crew to work and has its drawbacks (cant snapshot so need to fully aim your shot).

Actually a good tank, people think its garbage, it's not. With the crew skills and vert stab this CAN  snapshot and quite well, now has armor on the turret and cant play hull-down against some tanks, i am definitely going to mark this one as i get some time. Got it for free on the frontline.

Make a wish! Did you ask for a Japanese Tier VIII medium tank with a good rate of fire, fast AP shells, great depression angles and high speed? Well, that’s very specific, but we got you covered. The STA-2 is a great support tank that might not have the armour to brawl but the speed and the penetration to make a wish come true. At least, if that wish is spotting enemies and sending them back to their garage. Again, quite specific but the STA-2 is a unique tank. Add it now to your collection and don’t forget to check out the other offers.

 

I have a STA-2 in my SA Account played few hundred battles. Here is my honest opinions ;

 

Good Rate of Fire - Well until those autoloaders came in, you shoot one and they will pound you three.

Great Gun Depression - Agree,  It was nice that the tank had a buff on turret but can not confidently bring her to the ridge line due to the power creep

and the armour will not hold onto it. 

Speed - Agree with good traverse speed. 

 

It will be ok for the support role but I would go for STA-1 for the tech tree and T44-100 or T54 First Prototype for the premiums. 

These Russian mediums are far more forgivable but indeed STA-2 is a fun tank if you know how to use the Japanese Sword !! 

 

Unless you need to train the crews for Japanese medium tech tree, I would not recommend it for everyone.

I heard that STA-2 is a just STA-1 with slightly stronger turret.
I fully grinded STA-1 on Frontline, it was like a top 5 (non premium) tank for me there. Really enjoyable to play. Can snipe well, can peek-a-boo on medium range and on close distance can use dpm, track and circle heavies and even sometimes ding shots on turret.

I like this tank. It was m first tier 8 premium and it was at that time quite a decent tank but not so great. Now after the buff it is like a Progetto without the autoreloader and slighly worse terrain resistence but better turret armor.

 

It used to have very bad shell velocity so it looked like you were shoting potatoes with a slingshot or a catapult.

WG used my points to give me the tank automatically as I hadn't picked it.I didn't play much so it was the best I could get they also gave me some gold for the left over points but I couldn't find that either

From time to time, the forum thread is created much faster than the portal article.

Generally, you should receive gold unless it states differently in the article.

Sell more leFH on this game and you can keep thinking why ppl won't want to play this game even to high tiers to meet EBR 105, Chieftain and...

Can you get the joke? It's the "balance" in World of Pay2win

I like the tank but for me its one of those cursed tanks with win ratio somewhere at 20% while STA 1 was around 55% if i recall correctly

It's a decent tank now, but I sold it, because it has no further use for me - I already trained my STB-1 crew to 5 skills, and there are tanks better suited for credit farming.
