I really enjoy it, it's a welcome improvement on the horrible dpm/reload on the T24 and the ammo rack seems a little less fragile. It really seems to confuse some people too, they expect to get hit for ~100 and you're like pop pop pop. Against the right spots/tanks you can sometimes clip them down with just 3 shots, I've sometimes traded 6-9 shots for just 1 or 2 in return.

Forgot how much of a pain it is without Sixth Sense. It's a pity you couldn't buy a new crew with one skil trained.

 

Anyone able to compare the Ziska to the T-25 chassis? 

Might spring for the unpainted version when it's available, could be interesting with the 88.

Yeah I'm about 1k off the next tank up from the T25 now and only at about 75% on the crew skill. I've not come close to a mastery so may keep bashing it to get one and get the crew up.

 

I know they say prem tanks are the best way to bash skills up but the line is so made of paper and ammo racks that it's really not much of an incentive for me to do it with the only prem on offer.

Once fully researched the T-25 is really fun to play

If you see a platoon of these and they know what they're doing, it's best to stay away. I was shooting some from hiding. Edged forward a little too far and was toast before I could repair my tracks from the first shot.

Got the auto loader! Wow! This makes the tank for sure!

 

That's the part I don't get. Doesn't it have the same gun the tier 5 has? If so, how come the autoloader makes such a difference?

Because it gives the tank a completely different play style.

 

They're both made of butter so trading is the last thing you want to do but pulling back and forth behind cover is a bit tedious and requires a lot of discipline, plus it is actually pretty hard to hide yourself because in order to shoot you need to expose yourself somehow and even the turret won't bounce.

 

So it allows you to pop in and out of cover, the ~7-8 seconds reload keeps people guessing and you can think about relocating or coming from a different angle. You have a ~300dmg burst with the 3 shots which is basically bang-bang-bang which really confuses people and is hard to deal with, particularly if they're already facing someone else or expecting to trade one for one with someone who they think is going to hit with with ~130 alpha.

 

Having 3 hits in the pipe is a game changer against some tanks - If you have the shot you can ammo rack a Tiger for full health with one clip or track someone with your first shot and pop them twice somewhere else whilst someone else gets shots into them.

 

Played properly you can pop out, drop 3 shots and pull back before they even get a shot off or spin their turret towards you if they're already concentrating on someone else.

 

Keeping people second guessing takes a gun out the game or allows a heavy or beefier tank to make a move.

 

I caught a full health one chasing our arty down, took the time to aim, lead the first shot and got his ammo, the second shot did him for full health and sent his turret flying. With another tank you'd be hard pressed getting that second shot off before they either repair or stop/move etc. Granted with a large cal gun you'd probably one shot them but good luck making that shot at 200m with an IS whilst they're at 45km across a field.

 

Against arty you can pop 3 shots in very quickly, most other mediums have to go for the circle of death or peek and give them a half chance of shotgunning you.

Without the autoloader it is pretty much a T24 that sees tier VIII.
But it turns into a beast once you get it.

 

I hope so, the first 3 times I ran it, I got one-shot killed.  Frustrating doesn't cover it.

I was messing around with equipment last night and I am currently running with Vents, Spaull Liner and Wet Ammo Rack..

I must say, the durability on the T-25 went up rather well... 

If you have the $$$, try messing with different equipment to see how it changes the tank.

I was debating on switching the SL for the track one...I forget the name currently and I am at work.

I've grown to like this tank.  I will keep it to grind crew.  I do find that I need many APCR with the accuracy, especially after 1st shot.  Did any of you have issues with the standard rounds?

There are still some severe frustrations, but I still love to play.

I was looking for a comparison to the Chi-Ri with the autoloader. From what I'm reading it sounds like it with a little less burst damage. I'm currently at the first upgrade on the T-25.

I just unlocked the autoloader on this tank. It is like the Chi-Ri only a tier lower

So would you say that it is more effective in its tier than the T24 that precedes it?

 

I am planning on getting 1 TT tank in the CZ line and I was wondering whether to stop at the T24 or go for T25.

My opinion, the fully upgraded T25 is good. The 3 shot autoloader is nice on tier and even a tier down. The reload on the clip is a touch over 7 seconds for me. I recommend it 

 

Edit:  The I and the o are too close on a phone keyboard, especially when the word you are typing is shot 

 

:D

Just don't get hit.  Like Sean Connery said in a movie one time, The T-25 doesn't react well to bullets.

It's also really fast.  I chased down an ELC which was going after arty.  He tried to run, but couldn't pull away, and I was agile enough to stay with him as I took him out.

Totally agree, but it's better. I love this tank, so much fun to play. It's everything the German T-25 isn't. Even has betterr pen than the 85mm gun on the T34-100. Going from the T-25 to the T34-100 with the base package is such a downer.

No. It's 3 pot auto loader with 132 pen and I think 110 alpha. Very effective little tank. I've taken out tigers and t-29's on a regular basis. I've even taken out the odd tier 8 tank too. Always a fun thing to do in a little tier 6 tank
