Mediocre medium tank with good gun depre, its ok to play nothing special, 240 alpha out of meta these days but ok pene with ok standard shell velocity. Still remember when this was the top tier X British med:) Centurion RAAC is a better choice imho.

"bouncy hull armor"

 

Wtaf? Only bounce if you are in a position to effectively uses its gun depression. As soon as it's caught in the open - everything pens its hull.

 

Even if tempted for this tank - wait for Cent 5/1 RAAC - better tank - period.

Yep, pretty bad in 2021 and definitely does NOT hit the bullseye with the gun handling (soft stats) it has. :D

 

EDIT: I would add that even the turret is total rubbish when you're on flat ground. Only time it works is when you get hull down on an uphill slope. Even tech tree Cent 1 is way better.

If Wargaming were fair, the would offer tanks such as this one with a disclaimer: "Warning - this tank is balanced and therefore recommended for collectory only. If you want a competetive Tier 8 Premium, choose any of the following: ..."

230 alpha with long reload too, something like 6.7s with gun rammer + vents (bonused one from field mods), 6.9s reload otherwise.

Armor is paper on turret, if you expose just enough to fire while using full gun depression, you have armor, otherwise ... NOPE.

 

Gun handling kinda sucks, can't snap to save it's life.

 

If this tank had the gun/gun handling and turret overall armor profile of the Cent 1, it would be awesome.

It's one of those few cases where the tech tree tank is better than the designated premium (like Ind pz >>> mutz).

What? Bullseye? Are you kidding WG? xD

It can't hit the barn even from the inside! I bet KV-2 has a better accuracy than this crap.

Shell velocity is crap. Pen is crap. Forces you to play with gold ammunition, which makes farming not relevant.

No armor... don't believe that "bouncy" nonsense.

 

Only good thing is the gun depresion. Period.

Poor gun handling and abysmal shell cost/damage ratio = poor credit farmer.

 

Avoid, there are better tier 8 premiums out there.

£21 GBP plus 14 days Prem Account (worth another £6).  Interesting bundle?

My advice on this is its for collectors only.  As has been said, its mediocre and there are better and similar types in the game that its certain will be available at some point which are just better.  The the RAAC being at the top and the Strv 81.

My advice to anyone is keep your money and don't fall for the scam WG is giving you. This tank is a scam. On paper it's a laser but when you play it, it really is useless. The gun is so bad. With 4 crew on it and everything mounted, It still feels like as if the tanks aims from 3 seconds and downwards. 

 

I have no idea why one would buy it. I got mine for free and it sucks.

Selling mine, I just cannot get on with British Mediums..... It is strange, I love American Mediums.....  To be fair, I can't get on with any tank.... :)
