I was playing with Skoda T40, T6 premium and after 100 games I feel like this tank needs some buffs.

First of all it is soo huge but it has 780 HP, compared to others I think it has the least HP out of all T6 meds.

The shell velocity is just ridiculous on his normal and premium ammo (AP-700m/s) (HEAT-600m/s)

Aim circle bloom when you turn turret just jumps like crazy, and if you move your tank on top of that u can't even hit a target at 20 meters, and you cant mount Vert Stabs on it.

It doesn't have any armor (atleast buff its turret armor).

So at the end i really don't understand the playstyle of this tank , it is soo bad at everything

The Skoda T40 is just preparing you for playing the TVP VTU.

Joint lowest HP with the Strv m/42-57, yup...

 

It's always been unexceptional.

I own a T40. I bought it years ago and it trained my first Czech crew. I have hardly touched it in the last two years. I took it out for a spin a couple of weeks ago, and the gun handling and bloom annoyed me so much that I have not played it since.

 

You point out above all the other areas where it has become weak compared to other newer tanks, and lines that have been buffed.

 

But for me it is the gun handling that kills it and I have not played it again, and probably will not do so unless it gets a buff.

 

It can stay large, it can stay no armour, it can stay low HP if only the gun handling was buffed a bit. I would suggest the following;

Aim time from 2.21 down to 2.11

dispersion on moving from 0.23 to 0.21

dispersion on tank traverse from 0.23 to 0.21

dispersion on turret traverse from 0.15 to 0.12

 

for me that would make it comfortable enough to play again.

I'd have to agree it needs some love but sadly, 90% of the tanks in the shop need some attention just to make them relevant. 

For the life of me, I can't understand why WG don't look at their back catalogue and make some changes. It's far easier than making new ones as the model and back ground is already there/researched and they have a good idea of the issues with each tank to look at addressing.

It would breath a new lease of life into the rather stale shop and generate $$$ for the firm.

Well at least I can earn some credits and some points to battlepass. If you try to ace it or get marks on gun you notice that there are players who make huge impact with it.

I quite like mine, and for some reason I do better in it than my Progetto! :amazed:

To be honest I always found the gun very reliable.

 

It took the short end of the HP stick, and that could be a potential buff, but the platform and gun as such do put it somewhere in the upper half of the tier 6 tanks, in my opinion.

 

Actually playing it for this Battle Pass, it has the join highest DPG of my tier 6 tanks, together with the Hellcat.
