A solid German medium tank shows its slender turret in the Premium Shop. Don’t miss the opportunity to expand your tank collection with two tanks put into one.

To all intents and purposes, this is the tech-tree tank that got taken away from us (because it was too profitable and fun to play) and was then sold back to us as a premium.

 

Much like the T-28 with the 85mm

Well actually it was a needed balancing nerf. PIV with Schmalturm and L70 was a bit strong in Tier V.

Like KV-2 being its own tank in Tier VI.

 

And they did the right thing. They took it out and introduced it a Tier higher. Unlike russian premiums, liike isu-152-k or T-28E mit F-30.

The old tier 5 Pz IV had the 75mm L70 as a tier 5 medium. That set it apart from the other mediums, but as a tier 6 its rather meh.

its terribly slow with bad acceleration and meh top speed - only guns is somewhat/sometimes usable

Its just another long time outdated premium not worth the money

The mobility of this vehicle is so horrible that TOG-drivers offer their assistance by pushing you. :sceptic:

Slow and sturdy, nice gun, though DMG is low,....I would disagree that mobility is  compared to TOG,..with TOG game is over when you are 1/2 way to the batllefield,..with Smalturm its ovr when you get there :)

The answer to the choices that are made with tanks are usually a notch less dramatic than popularly painted by the audience. :)

We didn't want for the TOG to feel too bad about its speed. :P

Oh yes, I used to have this, i remember I got it for free through grinding it. Then it was stolen from me and i think this is the 20th attempt at trying to sell it back to me. Good logic WG, good logic. I also think it was taken from me (and many others) because it threatened the then dominance of the KV1 and 2. Couldn`t have that.

Those precious moments when russian heavies run past you like the wind, and you go up small hill and it slows you down to 7-8 kmh..

Please give this tank the 440 horsepower PZ4 motor, this tank is misarably underpowered in mobility.
