Got my hands on this tank the other day, and figured it would be a good time to share some gameplay and thoughts on the tank while players may be unsure about whether or not to pick it up! Hopefully the video helps some people make a more informed decision! :honoring:

 

If you already have the tank please let me know what you think of it!

nice game. Agreed, I like it. Even better than the Skoda T-25. Top tier it's a force to be reckoned with. Been seeing way more bottom tier matches in it and that's a hand full. the 20% silver boost covers costs on 2800 silver prem rounds when needed, and they are needed. 30% xp boost is ok, added Mentor after getting 6th sense to make that 40% crew xp boost.

I absolutely love the tank, on 88.5% and going for the 3rd mark soon. Had this game last night, the thing can be a monster even bottom tier.

Nice review, I look forward to seeing more from you. I'm really enjoying the tank. The damage output at tier VI is really nice, and I dig the short magazine reload. I haven't played autoloaders that much so I'm having to learn how to be patient and pick my engagements carefully. It's a fun rig, though.

Holy ****..... What a game.... I've barely broken 1k damage in 6 games. How many skills do you have on that crew and what equipment are you running? Great game.

I love the tank.

I haven't aced it yet and I got it the day it was released, so you know people are going full beast mode in it.

My  best game was 2500 bottom tier and it was only a class 1.

 

I only have SS on the crew and 50% on camo.

I'm running optics, GLD, and vents.

 

Once we all get better crews, it's going to be one of the better tier 6 premium tanks IMO.

 

I can't watch your game yet but you know I always do, love the content bud, keep it up !

I got mastery also yeastarday, but i dont like it so much, yeah its pretty good against six and even almoust all sevens if you play it right, but there are many eights that it can only pen in a few places in a premium rounds and it doesent have speed to do that if it fases them

Right now I have 6th sense and BIA, haven’t had any crew xp multipliers. I’m running coated optics, GLD, and vents. For consumables I’m using a large repair kit, large med kit, and auto fire extinguisher since it has a 20% chance of fire. Ammo loadout is 20 AP, 40 APCR mainly sonde I’m seeing a lot tier 7s and even more 8s.

It's a great tank. 20 games in I've pulled Ace a few times, and managed to train up the crew to have 6th Sense, BiA, and 11% into Camo (been using 6X Crew Boosts the whole way). using the same Optics/EGLD/Vents setup. Am starting to see the wisdom of using the Large Kits and Auto Extinguisher now that you mention it. Probably upgrade to those when I get home. Have been using the small versions, and it does seem to catch fire and take multiple-module damage more often than I'd like. Ammo loadout is 100% APCR :trollface:

I don’t blame you for all the APCR, a lot of the time it’s needed. The main reasons for the large med kit and repair are the potential for multiple module/crew damage and not having the crew to deal with that. Also only having 3 crew members makes losing 1 pretty sketchy and 2 devastating. Once I 3 mark it and have repairs and track mechanic I’ll remove the large repair kit.

My only problem with it is I play on the West and get into tier 8 games most of the times, In tier 6 and 7 it rules. I ended up running a full loadout of APRC and 105 octane to turn it into a "fun" tank though. Otherwise its just meh.

Had two 3.9k damage ganes in it so far. I dont actually thinknits a particularly good tank but it's usable. 

Artillery punishes flankers, not campers.

 

3500Wn8. 70+ tanks with 3 MoE.

I like it, but it isn't the greatest at much. You can pick at some people, but you're in trouble if you run into any other medium tank. Still, I've managed 2.6k damage maximum, and around 1.5k average damage.

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. No use being a damn fool about it.

Coated optics, GLD, and vents. The camo is actually pretty decent and the view range is ok for its tier. I try and stay mid range if I can ready to ambush tanks that just fired. Easier on tiers 8 to get a full clip out. Only shoot as many shots as you can without them being able to shoot you, this goes for all autoloaders, but this one especially since it doesn’t have a good hit point pool to work with.

That's what I'm running, I'm probably to aggressive in it and need to be more passive
