I bought the Skoda t-50 a few days before the Farterland nonsense, but I didn't run it until about 15 minutes ago. Unfortunately, I didn't have the necessary free XP to get me beyond the stock, single-shot cannon. Boy, it sure is iffy stock!  20 hits, only 11 penetrations. I carry 9 apcr, but not even all of those penned. I'm not sure if accuracy was off just a tad, but I sent three shots at the well exposed lower plate of an M103 with zero damaging penetrations.

I have to agree op, but it's well worth it once you get the autoloader.

well...I'm bad player, need more reliable penetration when stock :(

 

I was just surprised I had that many failed pens. Second battle I had 9 hits for 9 damage pens, but my targets were two arty, a PTA, a 30B, and a BC25....I was lucky to only encounter light armor.

The tank is night and day from the first to the final package. The tank starts sluggish and gets even more so with the second gun. Doing a small amount of damage every 8 seconds or so isnt very threatening. The autoloader instantly makes the tank one of the best in the game. The tank's mobility goes thru the roof with the final gun too.

 

Its a painful grind that takes far too long to get the real tank - both thru the mainly awful line leading up to it and its packages itself - but its all worth it in the end. What an amazingly fun tank to play.

Yes, but only fully upgraded. The other 2 guns are single shot.

This is such a rollercoaster of a tank as you go through packages and a monster of a grind competing with the WZ-120 for being the most obnoxious. That said, once you get the turret/suspension upgrade it becomes tolerable and even easier with the intermediate gun. It's smooth sailing from there if you want to save free xp. It's just awful without the turret/suspension, but still somehow better than the vtu.
Once you get the engine and then autoloader it feels very weird, but once you adjust it'll make you feel dirty.

You can use the fact that it’s better in WS and PG with single shot gun and get the autoloader there. 
Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

It's like 200-240k xp to go from stock to the autoloader, and then the 200k or whatever it is to the tier 10. You better really love war stories if you go this route...

Though that does bring up a good point, could use it stock in war stories if you must. It honestly isn't the worst thing, just sluggish until you get the suspension/turret which is the first upgrade at around ~40k.

There need's to be some kind of award when you research this thing. Call it the "You're still here?!?" medal.
