Very good little tank - likely worth the cash if you like TD style play - a couple of caveats:

 -  turretless (if you don't like that)

 - at tier V misses out on most WG events (e.g. cannot accumulate battle pass points etc.)

 When Battle Pass points can earn lower tier if 6, then could buy. At the moment not point buy lower than tier 6 tanks.

Basically they lose less camo when they fire, and it is on those premium TDs which were put into the game before the change were made to TDs.

Aka after the change TDs, in general, lose more camo when firing.

 

A classic example of old school camo is the E 25, which is the main reason it is so deadly.

I think he means that there's no reason to buy the SU-85I when there's a free veichle with identical playstyle.

It's almost 2 euros more expensive than Matilda BP (which is most expensive tier 5 in premium shop).

2 euros are not much, but still, why are you milking it and making it like that?

Nope,  I think you are mixing it with tier 3 Su-76I but I think we we'll see it in Christmas sales, bloated with gold. But 76I and 85I do look a like very much

Just over £8 in my money.

Not too expensive IMO.
