I just brought a t-44 after the wipe because i always wanted it :P Before the wipe i had the t-43, good tank. Ok i m noticing with the t-44 something that on t-43 and t-34-85 didn't happened: a lot of module damage. It's like almost hit is a module damage, ap, he doesn't matter. T-44 was so easily crippled before the patch too? Or it's just me?

I can spam this post with a lot of screenshots that shows 1st or 2nd shot is a module damage, hits in the right side that damages the left side (while right side remains intact)

I don't wanna be a cry baby or whine, i just did not expected he get module damage so easy.

T-44 is supposed to be like that, they were really dangerous with their setup of the tank thus it's really easy to crit kill the T-44

It needs it's sideskirts

"6 mm thick anti-HEAT sideskirts protecting the sides."

more hp means more chances for something to break...get wet ammo rack for 44 and NEVER stop moving in the 44 ...really NEVER

Before Patch the T-44 was an excellent tank and still is.

The difference is that your now being shot at by much larger guns. I have seen T-44's in matches where their the 9th or 10th tank on tank, and
every tank on that list can knock through it's armor with ease. Keep the tank, learn to drive it, follow the advice of one poster here (Never ever stop moving, ever)
and once the battlefields stabalize and you can once again find battles with similar tanks, you will notice the difference.

I have t44 and don't have problems with ammo rack, but with tracks so I ALWAYS have small repair kit

Yeah, the T-44 takes module damage from a light breeze. I didn't care for the tank one bit between that and the poor guns.

If you get through a match without crippling module damage it's reasonable against other tier 7-8s and a complete monster against lower tier tanks, but that's so rare that I couldn't stand driving it. The T-43 was much more fun.

i've 1 shotted a T-44 before, i think i hit the ammo rack and the whole thing exploded in 1 hit, the guy got mad and rage quit on me i think, calling me very rude names and called me a hacker... i was in a T-44 too with the 100mm as soon as i saw him coming up hill i fired...

the only thing i hate about my T-44 is the tracks can get destroyed almost everytime, thx to those consumables i can repair those tracks in an instant

thnx merig00 :) I m aware of that, and it's not such a big problem. I got killed by rack explosion only 3 or 4 times in 70+ battles. What I am amazed of, it's the amount of module damage i get

I've only had 20 battles in my T-44 and didn't have one before the patch but I can't say I've noticed the problem. I have had the occasional module damage but no more often than most tanks and a lot less than something like the IS pre-patch.

i was thinking about this earlier and here is what i think.

the tank has a low profile.

most people auto aim to hit us.

auto aim locks the turret.

guess where the ammo rack is.

And also since the tank have a more low profile the auto aim is closer to the Tracks which means the tracks get hit.

Just lost both tracks and the gun... FRUSTRATION!!!

I think the gun is made out of bad steel, it breaks all the time it seems... If we get another wipe, I will not be using the T44 again unless it gets fixed a bit. In my experience the components are too fragile, and it costs too much to repair. You have to kill 2-3 mid-high level tanks to break even, and thats with slow reload and constant component failure...

Thats fully upgraded, running with D10T, rammer, and vertical stabilizer.

I had 43 b4 soft wipe and invested in 44 after. And yeah i was kinda suprised how often ammo rack blows up, so i've adapted and bought "wet ammo rack". Now i catch a fire quite often... but well... seem like if it's not the hammer then it's the anvil.

Wait, people can actually complain about the t-44?

As far as I'm concerned it's god's gift to mankind.

T-44 is one of the most fun tanks in the game to drive imo, but it has a tendency to spontaneously combust (ammo rack), is extremely expensive to run (I often have over 18k in repairs due to removing speed governor when necessary, not counting ammo costs and essential repair kits) and tends to be everyones favourite punching bag if there's not a higher tier heavy nearby.

Couple the high repair cost with how easy it is to speed around a corner into a pack of enemies and instantly die and you can have some very frustrating rounds. ^^

Have you guys noticed sth? recently, my T44 got module damage and ammo exploding a lot. Just tried only 3 games this morning, the first and second matches :ammo rack dam, crew injury; the third: ammo exploded. Nothing more to say  :Smile-izmena:
