Has plenty of weakspots and has been in the game for so long that literally everyone knows where to shoot it. Don't expect it to actually bounce much.

You are correct. One of the oldest premiums in game. Yet, I always get surprised how much I bounce in game when I play with that thing. I never expect to bounce anything with T8 mediums (or heaviums for that matter), especially against T9's and T10's. But then people these days just seem to press number 2 key and shoot general direction. This thing expects you to learn weak spots, that are not Eiffel tower sized cupola's on top turrets. One of the nicest thing this thing now has is: 212mm standard ammo penetration its just so comfortable with some of the newer tanks that go 190-208mm pene on standard ammo.

 

I still say this thing is is acquired taste. Not suitable for everyone. Avoid like cancer if you hate slow tanks. (although this is not as slow as it used to be but still this thing is slow especially up hill)

Its a usefull tank, with good potential and good buffs recently.
Bounces 1500-2500 a game, pref mm doesn't help always with low pen, but its enjoyable yet a bit boring too play in the long run. Good crewtrainer BTW.

Conclusion: feels like 15-18 euros would have been a more fair price (but dont espect fair from WG)

Dont forget accuracy and rng + tanks near you. If you stand next to JgE100 i bet enemy will not spend time to aim fully, they will sort of yolo shoot with hopes to hit 50% of shots and not get pawned by that big bro next to you...

So, you ruined Frontlines, and want some suckers to pay you some money so they can be screwed over by tier 9s?

 

From my part, no euros, no eurocents; you can starve!

Does this still have preferential matchmaking?  Would think with that and a turbo it would be a decent money maker.

Play it every few Months its Ok nothing special as it still far to slow (even with Turbo) in todays WOT 4min Turbo battles

Got a nice handling Gun with standard AP 202mm Pen which is good for a PMM Vehicle

 

sadly

all decent players just aim for the Turret Cheeks just below spaced armor , which you cannot hide (thanks WG

or

the very obvious (again) that you cannot Hide Machine Gun pod on the Left Front Hull

 

Buff its Mobility to at least a more realistic 16 Power/weight (hp/t) and it would bring it better up to date 2021 in WOT Turbo battles

I still have troubles sometimes when fighting against this vehicle. It's good in my book and can fulfill multiple roles in one game unlike normal "versatile mediums" which have this and that but just melt down if forced to tank anything.

Given the map sizes, and the speed meta - wouldn't chalk this one down as a 'frontlines' tank. Mobility is to crap for that.

Could not agree more, same setup with bia and food that tank with turbo is great after the mobility buffs:)

It is a heavy tank disguised of medium .

In a battle I received 3.2k bounches but no one hit in the weakspots.

People aim at common weakspots normally (those who still aim).

It's a good tank vs bad players imo, still a great crew trainer for your murican mediums
