The text refers to a battle in the city centre of Cologne, where there is no horizon, and the reason why the Panther didn't fire was because the commander thought the T26 was a German tank. C'mon guys, easily accessible information.

Ahh this was the plan they had, when they let tons of clueless players have it for 0 credits in rental due to battlepass.

 

Too bad it is a stinker though.

I think it is an ok tank, but I don't really see a point in buying tier 7 premiums. They really are not good credit makers.

 

A lot of new players are getting this for free from the referral program, so if you want to three mark a premium tank then this is truly one of the easiest ones for that.

I wanted to rent this in battlepass sadly did not get the opportunity to test it.

Though based on the comments I probably would not have bought it anyway.

Doesn't seem an awful tank just little different to what I already have

The tank has a good bouncy turret with a nice large mantlet on the front.

A nice 240 alpha damage for a medium.

On the downside it has a slow shell velocity and mobility. Kind of Medium Heavy tank.

It has abysmal mobility for a medium tank, power/weight ratio is 12.69, which is ridiculously bad. Also that "nice large mantlet" is mostly 204 mm effective, Progettos and others will just shoot through your mantlet and if they care to aim, your turret cheeks have around 120 effective, while the roof and the tumour have around 100 mm.

 

So please, we know that you have to speak for WG, but it's quite immoral to try to sell obsolete junk to new players.

Sorry but tier for tier, I think this is one of the best premiums.  Fun to play and capable, possibly needs a preferential matchmaking status to prevent some unrealistic matches but there is no doubt it is a good tank and worth having.

Yet you manage to win 47% of games you play in it, so compared to your all-time WR, that tanks drags you down.

Wargaming making good review at their own products is like someone laughing on their own jokes.  Pathetic .

Proven? Where, when?

 

There is marketing and there is just plain lying.

I couldn’t care less about bloody win rate, that does not result in a viable review of anything.   Kills to death and how enjoyable it is matters.  This community really stinks, get your head out of other peoples stats as if any of it matters and realise a win rate is the result of team effort.  So sick of the vile morons that exist here.

It's the only result of viewing tanks performance - low WR means that the team you're in, loses more and one reason is that tank. But the main problem is marketing, as pointed out before - there's marketing and there's lying, making statements about Eagle 7 being good or competitive is pure lie, especially considering some not-so-experienced players thinking of buying it.

I think this is a fun little tier 7 medium. Or would be if it had anything other than a literal hamster wheel for an engine. The gun has surprised me in a positive way more than once with its accuracy, though it's not something I would recommend relying on. And of course, low pen plus bad mobility means you're completely useless against most tier IX tanks. If you know how to play a medium tank with no armour, no mobility. bad base pen and temperamental accuracy, this isn't the worst tank around...
