For how crappy the armor is it should be way faster. Or give it a better turret and gun

What I want is an upgrade option at the end where you get the fully upgraded yank except it has the stock turret for at least reasonable gun depression for have h paper armor.  And that is how a majority of pc players play it

Hands down the worst tier 8 I've played. Even after the engine upgrade its just so sluggish and the guns are just so underwhelming. A swift breeze in its general direction and the engine falls apart, not sure if I will be able to fight may way to tier 9 in it.. I thought the 34 100 was bad but oh boy, I did not know what I was in for.
I seriously struggle in the VTU, its starting to affect my stats.

Like I told someone before. "There's not many tanks in the game that I can safely say I dislike or hate, but the VTU is one of them."

I used it with the 88 and 105. The 88 is the obviously superior of the two due to general performance/stats/traits, however I've found it's often squandered by the horrid gun depression and armor. Thus in order to fully utilize it you must pretend to be an inferior cdc in all respects firing away and hoping you never get shot back. Good gun for the general player I guess.

But the 105... while inferior in almost all ways, somehow meshes with the tank. I've started to treat it like a more purposed VK 45.02 A. Again, worse gun traits and armor, but you get better mobility and can pull the flank/peek-a-boom a bit more. This might just be me coming from the chinese mediums, but the 105 makes it actually tolerable. 88 isn't even that accurate anyways.

Honestly both options suck and that's mostly due to the tank itself, but regardless it's gonna be a long grind. I do love how when you first get it with the default 88 it has 12 degrees of depression... what a bait and switch.

I've just about finished the grind on this tank but I've been torn between the 88 and the 105.. i much perfer the play style the extra damage gives, however statistically the 88 performs better for me

 

I this this tank is signposting you for the long grind on the next tank which from what i can see is drawn out until you get the autoloader

Well, give me more reasons to stay at tier 6, and grind 6 crew skills.

 Screw my elders!!!!

World of Tanks a game where it's 1 versus 29. 15 reds trying to kill you and 14 greens trying to support them. The yellows are your only hope. For signature and stats visit http://wotinfo.net/en/player-stats

It is the worst tank in the game, but you'll just have to live with it. If you're concerned with stats, just aim to get you x2 done daily. Also try to only play it when there is a good chance to get mainly t8 games.

The tier 7 is horrid. Yes, it can hit hard when top tier, but anyone who thinks this is a solid tank is mad. Tier 6 tank with a tier 7 gun. No armor or mobility combined with crap gun depression.   I'm woefully grinding this turd and apparently looking for more punishment with the tier 8.

I don't even have the words for this tank. Absolutely NOTHING going for it. Has to be the worst tier 8 tank in the game. Period.

I've stated this elsewhere I've tried playing everyway from sniper to trying to flank with the 10.5 and the 8.8 but I can't make it work been taken out tier 6 tanks with ease.

lucky for me it's all but done need a couple of thousand xp and I'm done, just glad I'm not a new player and this is my first line I think I've had quit for good.

Did you find the 105 worth the XP?  I've managed to get some decent games in with the new 88 package (upgraded engine).  I can't find anything notable about the tank and thought the 105 may distinguish it a bit.

I found the 88 more bearable.

Looks like the gun handling and DPM on the 88 trumps the small alpha increase of the 105. Thanks for the input.

I hate this tank.  Hate it, loathe it, despise it.  There is nothing at all good about it.  I am REALLY bitter I wasted the 17k XP on the 105 as that is a useless piece of crud.  I get ripped to pieces by everything tier 7 and above.  It is the worst tank I have played.  It is really destroying my desire to play.  I am going to play until I've got the T9 though.

Oops - posted on my son's account by mistake (he has yet to suffer the indignity of playing this crap-wagon).  Gives me further opportunity to state how much I despise this excremental heap of t0ss

This is interesting: the largest caliber gun for the Czech line is on this tank. Tier VIII. Pretty strange, pretty Czech. :girl::sceptic:
