Hello,

 

TS5 USA TD is in premium shop today, is it worth it? I like the T28 HTC and I LOVE TURTLE 1, is it still good and fun to play?

money is no concern, I am wondering if its fun

 

does the armour hold out?

 

 

the accuracy seems very poor, do you struggle to hit targets?

Armour is excellent, it's not a sniper so you will struggle at range.

No. not at all. The TS-5's armor is a hundred times better (at least). And eventhough the stats state otherwise the turtle is not a better sniper. The TS-5 can brawl, but it can also fall back and fight from distance reliably. I really like it :)

 

I only played the Turtle for 5 battles, but i liked the concept of the TS-5 much better.

Pro ->

DPM

Complete Bully vs T6/T7/T8

 

 

Con ->

T9/T10 Will shred your tank

Arty magnet, if arty hits your rear .. your gonna have a very bad day.

Highly situational

Team dependence.

 

TL/DR.. unless you enjoy the gameplay the T28/T95/E3 offer stay away from this tank.

It's a slow static gun TD with "armor" in World of Goldammo, so no, not really.

 

Generally if it doesn't have a turret or Russian (tm ) Spaced Armor, neither of those two points are a good reason to forgo mobility and flexibility.

 

The only static gun TD's that are worth it are the E-25 and the WZ premium TD.

It's very slow and an arty magnet, only good for brawling and holding chokepoints. The gun has no accuracy and feels like a potato shooter on long distance shots.

 

Good armor, but good players will have no problem penetrating its LFP and hatch.

 

It's not fun as everything moves so fast in WOT nowadays.

I have mine for more than a year. It's very worth it.

Never played it though.

Considering the tanks you like to play it's absolutely worth it, it's the best of the 3, granted one is a tier 7. You'll love the ts5 if you like the turretless playstyle.

TS 5 is really worth it, it has an insane DPM at T8. :)

I like playing it from time to time, but Su 130 pm, WZ 120 -1G FT and Scorpion are better because of their flexibility.

Yes and no, it is an assault TD but the gun depressions and traverse is nowhere near as good as the Turtle, could have been better but WG says no, that said it does have a good gun, but it is no T 95, and the weak lfp is huge.

 

Tbh the free tech tree one looks the better option as basically it is the same thing,

TS-5 is borderline OP.
