As a free tank from tank reward it is nice. But save your money :)

I got it in tank rewards, performs better than i expected, tiny, stealthy and with good gun for long range work. With the wide gun arc it has+ the good track traverse it works close range too, but ofc there is the meme factor of literally having 1mm of armor everywhere so if you are spotted the clickers and every derp tank in range will try to get you, also avoid ramming.

1mm armour, no not a typo it really is 1mm. Low pen, even if you dab the 2 key. It can be 'interesting' when you get into a T9 battle.

But good speed, great camo, so yes I like the challenges it brings.

Keeper for me, even though I got it for free.

This can be fun a little TD to roll around in, assuming there are no HE spamming clown cars, no SPGs that can splash you while missing by half a map (with you having 1mm of all-around armour), and that you get the right kind of map, where you can use the small size, good camo and gun-depression to its fullest. And pray that you see as few superheavies and tier IX tanks a possible.

I got it free too, nice tank not easy one but I feel to be paratrooper when I drive it. Jump, hide, seek, hide, destroy tank, hide, win, hide.

Needs full cammo and a commander with situational awareness, because if spotted your dead.

 

But if your hidden, it can be a good little tank.

 

Bizarrely it's crew layout makes it a crew trainer for the US heavy TD line T25, T28 and T95.

Got this one from tankrewards and I like it.

It's not tomato-friendly, but combination of mobility-camo-dpm and OP gold rounds make it quite a fun vehicle.

Funny tank, that's what I'm going to say. It's nice to play with it if you want to not do who knows what and you're like a tree is great :)

It kind of became playable after friendly fire damage was disabled. Otherwise, you lose half hp, if not get killed by a friendly bump at spawn already.

Hi there,

In the news article you speak about 14 days premium acoount but in the premium shop on the website it is saying 7 days.

Is it a mistake?

I see a lot of you got it from tankrewards! Do you remember when was it available?

A TD the size of an ELC can be fun, if you know how to hide it!

The bizzarre thing is that even if the layout match, the characteristics are totally different, making it hardly suitable for that line, especially on the t95.

I mean my t95 has no camo skill, no sixth sense and it's a marvel. If i move the crew to this i'll be useless.

On paper it seems bad but other than the gun traverse being a little slow I like it.

 

That said it depends on the map  we still have too many small maps and if its a city map like Himlesdorf then you are quite limited in where you can go without being spotted.

TDs generally are a support class there is good reason why tanks have turrets.so a none turreted TD and one with no armour is very limited.

But on the right maps you can do very well.

Great tiny devil . But you need to hide it if it possible even underground. Gun is ok but when you have full speed and try to aim somebody on left or right then you feel that the gun is heavier and you need to take the gun turn with your hull . But it's really fun stealth td .
