Nothing fancy, would still rather have a TD with a turret though.

Was a great T7 premium TD... in 2015. I have almost 700 games in it. Not so effective in current WOT speed meta on corridor maps, where casemate TDs (without much armour) and 175 pen are meh. best to save your money/gold and buy a Tier 8 premium which can also be used in Frontlines and Skirmishes.

No option to buy the tank alone, without all the bloatware.....it's better to buy tier 8 for such price...still way too much for simple pixels.

 

Do you enjoy meeting Defender tier 8 in your tier 6 tank where even gold can't help? And Defender shreading every tier 6 with gold anyway :D That's what WG calls a balance. (Easy top gun for Defender)

This made me spit my coffee out, lol.

Was a long time one of my favorites. But always needed a lot of gold ammo and with the HE changes it has become a lot less effective.

I like it being top tier.

No turret and aiming takes a century, though.

It was already difficult to play with this tanks against the latest generation tier 8 premium tanks.

 

But now we enter the era of tier 9 premium tanks. It means you will see yourself a lot more in games with tier 9 tanks. 

 

Tier 9 premiums will make playing tier 7 a joke. So good luck with this tank

A beast when top tier. As bottom tier I used to load HE but WG removed that option, making it rather useless in tier 8 & 9 battles since sniping weakspots is not very reliable.

So far removed from Todays OP meta of +- 2MM (mostly +1/ +2 MM barely ever top tier) and newer far more powerful T8 Premiums and lol! never mind the frankly scary T9 Vehicles when you play a T7 tank in 2021

 

poop your pants time today playing with this old relic of a once years ago great Vehicle

It does suffer from powercreep and given the current MM whch you have to assume will be. +0 +1 or +3

Being top tier was amazing in this tank today most of the time top tier means you are in a same tier game which is not the same thing.

Increase pen a little would help but I find the main problem is too little Ammo.

35 is not a lot and the other same tier Russian premium TD has just 30.

 

It either needs better pen for its standard rounds so they will be effective in most battle situations or more ammo so it can carry a decent ammount of premium for when standard rounds are not much use.

Other than historical reasons I see no need to restrict ammo carried too much.

Still like playing it in the right matchup but the facts are we no longer seem to meet lower tier tanks so we need the ability to fight many more battles against same and higher tier tanks.

If you read some of the history of TDs during WW2 it was common for them to be in battle for so long without resupply they commonly carried excess ammunition on the floor of the tank and used those shells first.

So there is a reason to increase ammo storage.
