 Turret traverse is very very slow. Gun is highly inaccurate so you miss a lot of the shots when you’re trying to hide. 

 

Speed is good. 

 

With camo, net, binos, muffled shot you can stay hidden. But the gun is very troll so expect to miss or bounce a lot.

I havnt played the t67 in a long time. Wish the gun wasn’t so troll.

I’ll keep working at it. Good he shell for lower tiers

I don't have it quite yet (on Stage 8), but it looks like the slow traverse and low depression/elevation are the primary limiting factor for the tank.  I'll probably start with Camo fully trained and the net/binos/rammer and go from there.

If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send a message to Prof935 (xbox) or dimka935 (ps4).

Camouflage skill does more than muffled shot - switch those out. IIRC it has a similar gun to the Honour at tier IV, but with a slow turret, like the T67.

 

Keep it hidden, or pop a shot then drive away fast.

This tank is sweet.  In a tier 4 match, it literally dominates all and tier 5 it rekts them hard.  This is basically a t67 with a 85 mm gun.  It supposed to snipe mid range and that reload time, omg i love it.  It is like having a hellcat at tier 4 nearly with gimped hp.

You have 2 battles in it......is it not a little early to be publishing such a ringing endorsement?

 

Edit:  Just played my 5th game in it and had 3 kills using HE only.  I find that if in any kind of close quarter fight the turret rotation is a massive liability.  Also elevation is so bad it will shock you when you go to put a slug on an elevated red......I thought the gun was broken so I checked to see if it was.  No, it just shoots line of site pretty level.  Elevation is listed at 7 degrees  however from my short experience I wont be attacking any reds above me.....Unless you can use terrain to lift the front up a little.

 

Yes agree the gun is a little wild.  Just realize that all you can do is aim and execute the shot, the rest is up to RNG and way out of your hands.  Try not to get mad!

When a man with a .45 meets a man with a rifle, you said, the man with a pistol's a dead man. Let's see if that's true. Go ahead, load up and shoot.

I'd imagine with a decent crew this should be a good TD.

So I have come around and now understand the playstyle around this tank. Yes gun is derpy, but hits hard at the tier.

I transferred in a crew with three skills, I’ve got camo, muffled shot, and silent driving. Working on green thumb. With binos and camo net you are pretty darn stealthy.

HE has a lot of use especially when top tier.

If you want to do a drive by you need to have your turret moving in the direction you want to go

At range the Roundabout is awesome. I had seven kills in one match while not even being spotted. It’s so small that it’s difficult to see. One match I sat near the red’s base and shot them from behind, in another several tanks passed while I was reloading and they also were great targets. I have had match after match in the top three damage and destroy between three and five reds per match. Camo net, loader, and binocular optics. Camo skill, muffled shot, brothers in arms help.
