What actually changed when this tank became a medium? (I mean besides the crew reclassification - where the players should have been compensated for it with at least a crew book.)

Is it better as a medium than it was as a heavy tank? 

Did it gain extra speed / camo / view range or anything?

This tank is too weak to be a heavy and too slow to be a medium.....it's like driving through treacle.

It does have two things going for it......a powerful gun with 157mm pen(standard ammo) at T5(the best at T5) and accuracy with a dispersion of 0.32 @ 100m.

Play it second line or as a TD....you will never need or even feel the need to load premium ammo.

Well it used to be a medium anyway at tier 6.. think more mobile and generally better VK3601H.

I used to love this tank until it was lowered a tier..

 

Was quite good as a heavy (more so than I expected), now a little better again since it's class is back to normal.
