You might not get the flag or the eagle, but you get a true American.

Good at first, outdated like a tape cassette walkman nowadays. Penetration makes this tank mostly a witness. bad mobility too, easy to outflank by today's mediums.

I have patriot from bond shop. Nice tank, but its no heavy tank in true meaning.

Alpha is more like medium tank. If I am bottom tier I go to medium tank line. You cannot trade even with tier 8 tanks so your play style must be different.

It's ok if you can get it hull down for long enough, but with the pace of the game these days, pretty out-dated and easily countered.

Its cheecks are weak and the turret is not so strong, it has to be played as a medium, too bad it doesn't have the camo. T26E4 is a medium and that tank has a better hull. Why can't this be a medium, too?

Thank you for sharing your advice on how to play the tank! :)

Definitely power-creeped like 95% of the premium tanks :P

Had it few years a go when it was still meta, as a rental, doing 2k + easy, got it recently with referal and doing 1.4k.. Yeah powercreep is noticable. Still not a bad tank, with low alpha as a major negative point.

Actually the tank is available "free" via the referral program. By free, I mean, you have to play (grind) some low tier games, and try to earn as much medal as you can. :)

Got it from bond shop.

hate it.

not strong enough for a HT.

not mobile enough for MT.

its got the best of all weaknesses.

its okay in tier 8 games, in 9 or 10 you are just easy farming for the enemy.

Patriot skin looks terribad. Asked support if I could swap it for the plain version. No.

 

guess this’ll be the first one I trade in when that comes around again.

This tank used to be good, it's my most played tank and great credit maker, BUT, it's not as good as it used to be.

 

Now it could use additional top speed, like 44 - 45, better turning speed, and better dpm, just to make it similar to mediums - because it's not really a heavy tank. You do have decent turret that works against tier 8's, but that's it.

 

It's not worth the money... maybe at 30 - 40% discount :P

Baffling how they make two premium US tanks on the same tier, and make the T26e4 inferior in everything but traverse and camouflage...
