I have been grinding mine on the live fire war stories in multiplayer its terrible.

 

Same here, I gave up on multiplayer and used War Stories to complete the grind.

 

With all OPS enabled, The Battle of El Alamein earns quite a bit of XP with this tank.

 

LOL, the armor works much better since the War Stories AI does not spam premium ammo.

i am just about to start the o-ho grind.  I am so glad I read this before i went to this tank.  i wondered after seeing them in the game if they were any good.  I wondered if they were good for anything except maybe small city maps and I am guessing not.  So i do want to finish it and unlock the tier 10 and be done.  So I guess war stories here i come when i get to the IX.  Sounds like a long time and many battles in war stories.  ugh

I liked it when I had it. The 15cm with HE is very good against side scrapping and hull down tough turret enemies though the reload is :facepalm:. The premium rounds hit hard like a TD and have high penetration but resist urge to use too many of them since they're expensive. The armor is a little disappointing but angling behind an obstacle and peek a boom works well. Side scrapping worked wonders for me and though I never did it I've heard reverse side scraping helps even more. I never use 14 cm since pen is subpar and comparable to Maus, though it does usually have better damage than HE rounds on 15 cm and not to mention excellent depression.

 

Right now I'm right at home with the Type 5 since it has better mobility, way better armor for sidescraping thought the front is still a little disappointing, and better reload and handling.

The type 4 is definitely a good tank. Excellent gun depression and the 14 hits pretty good. Still grinding to unlock the 15.

Top tier your armor is very good. Even against many tier 10 your armor holds well. Especially Angling.

Been enjoying the grind and though it is slow, it gives me time to think about tank placement.

Derp gun does not cost time, i got the 1st mark very easily on this tank using the ordinary gun, and it took ages to get it on Type 5 heavy with derp.

Type 4 is complete garbage. Not worth the time and I’m sorry I got to this level. No gun makes this xp piñata work. It’s complete trash and should be avoided at all costs.

WG you need to fix this tank. It's not fun to drive for 2.5 minutes only to get lasered to death by premium rounds through every bit of flat armour at the front of the tank. Sure it can bounce shots but only from lower tiers people at distance. This tank can't operate at a distance as the shot speed and accuracy is terrible. The side armour always leads to an ammo rack pen and mediums and lights have no problem penning any part of the turret as they circle. If I shoot that medium or light in their turret, I bounce. Not that it can keep up turning with anything but a T95. It needs to be a 32-35kph tank which can reach that speed within a decent time on flat ground, and have enough power to get up one of the MANY hills without going at 5-6kph, I mean, seriously... What is with this tank? It might as well say "base camper, because I cant get anywhere else fast enough". I even timed it driving across that new Nahompnoamaoamana or whatever that silly name is of an ice map, took 5 minutes to drive from the South base spawn to the bottom right corner. That's not a playable speed, it's just a paper weight.

Yeah, it's quite bad tank really, worst tier 9 tank I've played so far. Armor is actually very good against tier 7 and 8 tanks and some tier 9's as well but gun is quite bad and mobility is terrible. My tip for you: play some other tank and wait for the buff, on pc Type 4 Heavy has better top speed (25 km/), better dpm on 140mm gun and also 152mm derp gun (which is awesome!).

 

I actually get it to go 25kph but only on highway on a flat road after 45 seconds. Go acceleration!

This tank is only op in war stories. Playing this tank in multiplayer is a nightmare. Unless you’re in a supportive platoon or on a cooperative team. Basically running this thing through war stories for 30 percent discount for Type 5.
