OMG. This tank is just so useless. Slow as a turtle. Fully upgraded. Waste of free XP and money. Simple WASTE. There are way more FUN tanks to play. Funny and profitable too. I still cant believe i invested on it.

Are you guys playing a different T44 than I do ? I see very little difference pre-patch, to be honest. Mostly up hill if anything...

Other than that, having a blast with it ...

Except heavy tank drivers, who just ignore it.

If you're using autoaim on a fast mover then you'll fail. T-44 drivers pray that you're using autoaim, most of the time your shot will pass harmlessly over it's back and even if you do get a hit it will be on it's upper hull away from it's delicate tracks. A tracked 44 is a dead 44, it's armor is quite weak when compared to other tier 8 tanks. A 44 is like a leopard on growth steroids, has good mobilty protection, but a sitting duck when stationary.

Nothing needs to be done about it. If you think it OP just give it a try. It's a great tank but no OP.

The mere fact that there are 1000's of posts/topics talking about this tank should tell you something is wrong, good or bad. Pre-patch it was better 1v1 then the panther, post patch, it's even better.

I drive them both, there is no question of skill etc, it's a better machine and the only people that argue against this are people praying it doesn't get modified. Once you
add gold rounds to the equation, it's not even a contest, and in clan/match play, people are going to load gold rounds and spend the 50 cents it costs.

That being said, I like the tank, perhaps it needs to be a tier higher then it is, not sure what other make believe russian tank you might put in it's place, but the developers
can always make up another post war non production experimental tank and include it just like they did with the T44, which never saw any action is WWII.

The T44 saw  action in world war 2 but in secrecy.  The T44 is a good tank but I think because of the amount of IS series of tanks it seems underpowered greatly (I can take on a Tiger and a tiger 2 with a T44 but notice rarely a IS or a IS3), however there is 1 thing that needs to be changed and its the ammo cost of the 122 mm cannon for the T44.

As in another post, the T44 is low profile so the auto aim is aimed at the slightly at the tracks and the rear is >__>

In the battlefield its funny but I fear the VK3002DB more so then the panther, the VK3002 has slanted armour on all sides while the Panther does not. So most T44 shots bounce off the VK3002DB while not much on the Panther. Hmph I think we should be comparing VK3002DB vs T44 rather then Panther vs T44.

The T44 isn't overpowered its a Tier 8 tank. Actually in fact a IS and a Is3 could easily do what the T44 do, how is it overpowered plus max repair cost is 17K for the T44 and if you equip the 122 mm cannon the T44 is a money sink.

I love my T-44 but it has a huge number of weaknesses

Take out my tracks or damage my engine (essentially, remove my mobility) and it’s only a matter of time before my T-44 is scrap.. If you have a friend or two with you or even arty support, the T-44 is at a disadvantage  :huh:

Even with the 100mm gun, front on to a Panther and Tier 9/10 tanks is just wasting my ammo.. Occasionally, I can penetration if I shoot into the weak points on the front, but usually, it’s far safer to get to the rear or sides.

The thing about the T-44 is that is has high speed, good manoeuvrability, good turret speed but thinner armor (especially on the sides and rear) than comparable tanks in the tier 8 and above bracket. If you’re in a tank and wander off solo and a T-44 finds you, you only have yourself to blame.  :D

This is just another classic example that mobility is better than armor. Being able to get yourself to a fight quickly, get out of a fight, and outmaneuver your opponent are of greater advantage than a few more mm of armor plating and a bigger gun. T44's are difficult to kill because if they see that the battle isn't to their liking they can simply run away and wait for back up or go for a different target. Slow heavies cannot do that, if they enter a battle it's a case of fighting to the death, so the t44 has the benefit of being able to choose combat situations that favor it and avoiding those that do not.

T44 are not frontline combat tanks. They cannot go toe-to-toe with heavies in a massed frontal static battle that the slow heavily armoured excell at. In those situations the t44 will be one of the first to die. They simply lack the hp and armor and a hit to the tracks or engine is a killshot. What t44 and other fast med excel at is pack hunting and skirmishing. If you stray from the herd then a t44 is going to tear you up, that's what they do, hunt lone targets and harass the flanks of massed formations. They are like a pack of jackals hunting down the bison that strays from the herd.

If you see a t44 gunning from you, chances are you are alone and that's what they like. If you see a t44 running away it's probably because your backup arrived.

Slow heavies are for forming an iron fist to punch en masse through defensive lines
Fast Mediums are for skirmishing, pack-hunting and harrasment
Lights are for scouting and arty killing.

+1 for that.

At the beginning of a battle I love chasing down enemy scouts in my T-44. The T-44 is better equipped to do that than most any other tank. Save the Arty, Save the World (or at least that battle).

ammo rack is a pretty big problem with the T44

a wet ammo rack is a must for a 44 killed 2 by ammo rack and fire in one battle .

If you think that the t44 needs a nerf then you'll probably be surprised to find that its performance is actually quite poor. It's actually amongst the worst of the end tier vehicles.

I think the T-44 need a major buff! Give it the engine from the Panther(870 hp) and the 88 L71, because it's weak now!  :Smile_great:

let t44 stay good it ment to be this good, it was easly one of the best tanks in ww2 and the t34 was one of the best produced tank ever during ww2.

t44 and t34 has sloped armour which the germans then used on their panthers but cost effective wasnt one of the things the germans failed to produce while russain t34s and t44 were easly produced on mass and had great all round ability.

they kind of ment to be the best medium armour around, panthers can kill them but not close quaters more long range
