Hello all! After almost one year of grinding missions for 279e, i am very disappointed! The only decent armor it has is on it's front,but if they use GOLD ammo.......pretty much useless!

 

1. Very slow tank and when you are stunned it is like a Slug

2.Your crew dies from arty splash (no damage taken)

3.Armor from the side including the turret is only 130mm (so a tier 6 can pen you at every Shot)

4.You get ammorack and your turret flyes so often ( i have crew with 6 skills including "Safe Stowage" and "Shell Organizer" directives)

5. You do not have gun depression to use your frontal armor

6. You get penetrated in the turret from weird angles

 

Bottom line,for the amount of time you poor into the almost impossible missions, this tank isn't worth it. Better grind OBJ 277, OBJ 260 and IS7 which are much better!

Here you have A live armor inspector link: https://tanks.gg/tan...e/model?vm=live (Keep in mind that you do not have gun depression to use your frontal armor).

 

Obj 279e needs a buff!

 

1. Traverse speed

2. Turret sides

3. Gun Depression

The most idiotproof tank in the game is certainly not in need of a buff

If you cant even perform in the most idiot proof tank in the game then you need to go down some tiers and re-learn how to play

Dude you don't have it! It is not idiot proof! First finish you missions, play with it at least 100 battles then share your opinion here!

It's still your tank with 4th highest average damage.

Are you sad that you only get 1200 wn8 in it or what? It's a super good tank so it has a lot higher requirements than most other tanks.

Its THE most OP tank in the game, in tier 8 games it can just bully tier 8s to death like no other tier 10 can, the only reason you die in it because every time I see it on the enemy team the whole team tries to kill it first, because its so OP, just look at the stats, it outclasses all other tier 10s

ROFL. Because it isn't 100% invulnerable from the front IF the enemy has 340mm HEAT?

 

It is better armored (frontally) than a Type 5 or Maus while having a much better gun and much better mobility ... how else would you define idiotproof?

I say just ammo rack,ammo rack, again.

 

The tank is trash if you spam heat or high pen ammo in front of it,not to say about the side,Instant ammo rack magnet.

 

Real not that op if you dont play it hull down ,and enemy has arty. It is the king at hull down but the rest is not that grea,only vs tier 8 and 9 you can say it is very op.

Has to be a joke yeh? Because it is factually the most OP tank in the game and makes players overperform by like 8-10% win rate. 

 

If the OP is serious, then it's people like him that are the reason the game is so broken and so full of dumb tanks.

Well, people learned how to counter them, easy shots, either perma track until artys finish it off, or either gold spam it. 

And usually their players over trust it's armour and lose a lot of HPs in no time.

Thank you ZDN and SHIKAKA9! You know what i am talking about! Yes the tank is trash.....With every arty shot you get 1-2 crew members dead, not to mention you stay ammo racked 75% of the battle if you don't  get BlownUP.

Ok some of what the OP wrote is correct. Getting your turret  blown of does happen a lot. Other down sides are you get focused by everything and I do mean everything you also have to factor in the amount of abuse you get(yes you can turn of messages but I do like to listen to people cry but some don’t) people can not except that normal players like my self can get this tank if you put a bit of thought into it and have a bit of luck.

The op does Not mention how good the gun is and when these tanks hunt in packs for example clan wars they do have the advantage over other tanks. When you fight on your own this advantage disappears as they only have you to focus on. I have played 81 battles and I have done rubbish in it.

I only really use it for clan wars now. Played it 3 times on ensk  last night two games over 4 k damage and 3/4 kills, one game I did 800 damage in it as the other team needed to throw the game and brought 11 arty and I was to slow to get to them.

The reason it has a high rating is cos lots of good players have it. It has its pros and cons but it is not as op as people say unless your have a pack of them on one team then it is devastating

I voted yes and was very surprised we were only two (probably the OP and I).

 

Did everybody miss the irony?

Meanwhile the title reads "Do not grind 279e missions".

 

Guess we're stuck.
