I love the GUARD i own. People often under estimate it.

 

It has low profile, superb turret armor, good alpha dmg, 0,30 accuracy, and has good 50km/h mobility.

 

I often use it as semi-TD or ambush tank. If used as conventional medium rush tank, it sucks. Because 11sec reload time wrecks it badly against  other 5-8sec reload medium tanks.

Camp in a Bush like a TD Medium Tank best wait for an Enemy 

and

have a good escape route ready it cannot relocate in a hurry at all

 

Its Slow its got a weak low power Engine

its got awful DPM

its got terrible Gun Depression -6

the 122mm AP shell has very low velocity so not good for Sniping the target at range as the enemy is not there anymore

 

Its turret is Excellent 

up close (within 300mtr) its Gun is Good at Tier 8 and Excellent down to Tier 6   ((Tier 10 its useless like most tier 8 Premiums

 

4 years ago it was nice

now its out-of-Meta 4 years is a long Time

Especially with WG continue Power Creep with T9 much stronger and T10 vastly superior to this poor little Tank :(

Or ignore both and just use a Rudy as a trainer.

 

With an additional country on top.

For those who needs a trainer for medium tanks crews yes, Rudy it's a better option.

and if you have the occasion , you can spot too, because it has good cammo rating. i'v took the bush on malinovka many times, with good results :)

Yep even the advert for it says "slow and steady"

Slow has been out of meta for some time now, especially for a medium

And for someone who like to camp with SU-130MP at back? Want to be at 2nd but lacking some armour.

I like the tank look. I don't have any ambitions to be s good player, just to have more fun closer to frontline. Like the Guard version more, but never can't make 8.000 bons though :-)

Yeah, it is exactly like tier X K91....bad...kind of paper, gold ammo needed..and that DPM :D

 

saying is exactly like K-91, then proceeds to compare apples to oranges... how biased must one be to fall for this nonsense?

 

K-91 is on par with Leopard 1... and will out-DPM pretty much all other mediums in the game on a maxed DPM config, but unlike leopard, has far better turret armor, similar gun depression and the best APCR velocity in the game.

seriously, if you're being clueless about the problem you're adressing, keep it to yourself, because you're spreading misinformation... which you believe, by the way.

 

on topic: not exactly sure I would recommend this tank, there are other soviet T8 prem MTs.

however, I feel like Ravioli is far better than STG.

Finally I bought it. I can say it definitely not worth the money though. Save money or bons for more useful things ...

Mobility is OK for me. Penetration, aim time, and reload are biggest issues for me. (don't using gold though)

 

So first part of battle I'm trying to snipe from the bush. Which cause other players click on you, insults in chat, and even pushing you from bush.

Second part I'm trying to finish tanks from sides or back. With the alpha and reload you can't simply fight with Progetto.

You even have problem with penetration of low plate of some mediums.

 

With ven, gld, rammer, consealment, and visibility skills you can comensate some of the issues. With food and gold feels the tank pretty well.

I have similar abandoned premium at my garage T34. But I bought STG more for it's look.
