It is a nice credit maker.  Not as good as the Lowe, but more fun to play.

Solid tank and great credit maker. Not quite as fast as I'd like, and the gun's not really that great, but the armor is great for a medium and it gets preferential matchmaking. It's quite good when top tier.

I own a lot of tier 8 premiums and it is a great one. If you can play hull-down tanks it is near perfect. The downside to this tank is a poor rate of fire (still not that bad), and horrendous aim time and accuracy which doesn't really matter if you're hull-down because nothing can pen you anyways. The T95E2 is still my favorite though.

absolutely worth it!

possibly the best Chinese tank in the game, tier for tier, and it gives a lot of the Soviet tanks a run for their money, PMM or otherwise

 

great armor, good speed and mobility, good gun, cheap AP rounds, and PMM, its a fantastic tank in almost every way

if you do buy it, make sure you fully aim in your medium & long distance shots.

Cool, hoping they offer it next weekend for the Chinese vs whoever it is again OP. I also want the motherland but they put a paywall above 100.00 which is astronomically insane. No thanks!

Motherland to me is better than the Type 59, other than no PMM.  Sucks you couldn't grab it when the Op was out giving it for free.

You must be really good in a Löwe to say that. lol it's got a bad reputation for being the first purchased tank by newbs who haven't crossed teir 5. but it is a good tank, I just think Type 59 is better.:)

Not that great in the Lowe, but find the Lowe makes credits better is what I meant.

The motherland & t-54 first prototype are wayyyyyyy better, the type 59 has a 2.9 second aiming time, this just extremely bad, by the time you finish loading, the game is over. The centennial is also better.

It's a very powerful tank, one of the best premiums without a doubt.

stat wise i'd agree the t54proto/motherland are better, but for me personally i play much better in the Type 59,  no idea why, but i feel like the Motherlands gun trolls me way more even tho it's more accurate and for whatever reason the turret of the Motherland doesn't hold up as well for me.

Regardless of its flaws, because of its PMM, the Type 59 is the best Premium vehicle in the game IMO. It's just too good...even with the bad aim time. 

 

The Motherland and Centennial, as good as they are, still see Tier X...which is a huge con. It's much easier to perform well in the Type 59 because of the PMM..which makes it the superior Premium in my mind.

The Type 59 is a good tank and to me personally, I find it a very fun tank to play. I think the Motherland is a better tank but the Type 59 is somehow way more fun to play.

Love it.   Gun can be a bit trollish at times but hull down or as a brawler it is a good one.  Making silver requires no effort.  On the downside, ammo-racking can be an issue but you soon learn to not expose that side to fire.  One of the best Mediums in the game IMO.

Might I introduce you to the far superior STA-2?

PMM, a gun which slaughters tier IXs (and Xs), gun handling not shafted to near uselessness, adequate mobility and a very low, permanently available price.

Silver gain is a little bit on the lower side, but it's a far more enjoyable tank to play, as it actually hits things.


You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.
