I only consider seal clubbing using a highly trained crew.

I love it! I decided it was a keeper after 2-3 matches with the last package. IT CAN PEN MATILDAS!

This is an average "conversation" between it's autoloader and the average cocky Tier III.

 

Red, "I'm comin atcha!!" BANG

38, "Hmm, really." BANG,BANG,BANG.

Red, "uhhh...." BANG??

38, "yeah, no." BANG,BANG, BOOM.

Both good,

but the Mk.IV is more capable with some of the best in game gun depression alone.

Love my Cruiser tanks,  but really do like the vc38, bit sluggish off the mark but a very capable little machine.

Great sniper support tank but you need vents and a gun laying drive (I use the same equipment on the Mk.lV) helps to bring the bloom down in between shots, so you can unload quicker.

Nope, but definitely keeping the ST.vz.39 though. Aced it earlier today with close to 1,700 in damage and 7 kills. While testing it fully upgraded, I suspected it would be very good in tier 4 matches.

 

I got the Skoda T 24 fully upgraded now. I just need to test her out first, and then take her out next weekend. I'm drooling seeing video on the higher tier tanks. Freaking wicked gun on some of these lines. You just got to be careful with the paper thin armor. ;)

I had the same result in my first battle with the vz.39 to bad it was a loss.

Me too :)

It's a good support sniper with that gun.

Two of them focus firing a target into Swiss cheese is good fun :D

I'm on the '38 now and quite enjoying it.

True, it's a bit slow, but other than that...it's a nice surprise. I don't usually like lights.

What's the next one really like?

Does it play the same but a bit more, or is it crippled somehow?

Tier 4 and 5 are played differently, and tier 7 and 8. They are "normal" mediums, without autoloaders, that are better played as second line support and snipers.

 

The next similar tank in line is the tier 6, which is faster. After that, both tier 9 and 10 are autoloaders too, with similar play style.

 

You may notice bouncing some shots from the tier 3 turret, but up from there you will rarely bounce shots and get ammorracked a lot. But  g guns with good mobility is a winning combination.

I have this tank as a keeper. Tons of fun. Will be nice to get the replacement crew 6th sense (original crew moved on up the line and currently lives at Tier VII). And if I could not be used as filler in predominantly Tier V games that would be great. :great:

Hate it. Trying to grind a 6th Sense crew in it is torture. Gets tier 5 matches more than any tier 3 I've played. Garbage armor, horrible bloom, bad mobility, frustrating gun depression, poor shell velocity, piddly alpha damage. Hard to carry turkey teams even when top tier because of this, Cruiser IV craps all over it.
