It really needs a lot of apcr and a good crew to do well. It also needs a lot of gold ammo. Your success will also depend on the match up. Some tanks just outclass you. Did I mention you will need a large supply of premium ammo?

But other than that it can be a decent tank.

 

 

if you stop relying on prammo & start trying to make the normal rounds work, you may be surprised at how many tanks you can end up getting the normal rounds to pen.

 

the tank is awesome btw, & needed for the british line.

I agree ... +1

 

Long time ago, and definitely much prior to the recent additions (tier 4, 6) there were'nt good options that were on the tree - I bought the UK Sexton thinking "Tier 3 and XP gains" - but was aghast as it earned next no XP. Regretted it. Waste of gold, I say.

 

Then next Tier 5 sale, I bought the Excelsior and that turned out be a darn good purchase.

I suck and pulled a Radley in my Excelsior with a one perk crew, didn't even have SS. One of my premiums that I'll always keep, has alot going for it. Split my ammo load out 50/50, never felt like I "had" to shoot prem constantly but still want to be prepared. I always felt it was a tank with the potential to get a Pool's in.

It depends on the match up. Some matches have heavy armor and load up apcr, that is premium or gold ammo.  If there are a lot of tier 3 and 4 load regular.  I probably run about a 50/50 split on the load out. I will switch between ammo in a match to what ever will work. I don't like to throw away silver needlessly. 

 

But its reload is not really fast enough to switch while on target. You have to plan ahead for the next shot. If you might need apcr, load it.

It's a good British crew trainer, especially for a virgin crew with no skills.
