I usually don't have issues getting a feel for a tank at some point. But every time I get in this tank it's like I'm cursed and just can't seem to get around it. How should I be playing this tank? Any help would be appreciated I liked every tank before the type 61 so i don't know what I'm doing wrong.

Doesn't have camo.

No armor.

Kinda big

 

Still good tank, a CAX at tier 9 with a crap turret.

(CAX is trash so don't ever buy that)

Optics

Rammer

Vents or something else of your choosing

Play support and use your gun depression for peek a booing. You do have a good hit pool, so you can take some hits and enough armor to take some HE shots to the front. 

 

Let others be your meat shield, pop out when the enemy shoots, or you can snipe, but I never did that.

 

Try spotting tanks but to where you will have enough cover to pull back or get away without being shot.

 

90mm or 105?

Id go with the alpha and penetration. You can pop out for 390. Of course the 90mm is good when there's enemies just constantly giving you shots, but that isn't always going to happen. When it does though, its great.

One of my issues the times I can't make use of the faster reload I get hit trying. I'll try switching the gun and see how it goes.

Thanks for the advice I generally try to snipe over using other tanks as shields but I'll try it and see if things improve. Part of my problem is not getting greedy with that reload so the 105 might solve that

Ammo Count sucks, I've ran out of ammo a couple times with it.

I rarely do run out if ammo but when I do it's always because I accidentally switched the prem ammo to gold and I don' keep gold so ammo doesn't renew lol
