Wow this tank is bad, no redeeming features at all. Hull armor? Horrific, the hull is useless against anything but stock tier 7’s and 8’s, you can’t sidescrape at all either. Turret armor? Mediocre but overall pointless, your inability to go hull down in a large amount of locations makes the turret armor pointless and when you do get to use it, everyone loads gold and fires straight through. Mobility? Fine but nothing special. Gun? Mediocre, the damage is nice but the awful gun handling makes it useless unless you brawl, something you can’t do because your armor won’t bounce anything regardless of how much you angle. 

 

What makes this this tank special? Why would I play this over a Russian medium? This thing needs a gun depression buff desperately, make it 5 degrees or something because 3 is unnecessarily terrible, and then it either needs a gun handling buff so the gun can be used at ranges exceeding 100m, or a  hull armor buff so it can actually brawl without being immediately penned by everything. If your going to make every other stat terrible just because it gets a big gun, at least make the gun decent.

Agree completely. I tried for a while and eventually gave up. Someone praised this to me as a T-54 with a big gun, which is a hilarious comparison.

I actually quite liked the WZ-120 it is completely out shone by the T-54 in every single aspect but I still enjoyed the tank. Yes it difficult to play but it still a devil of a tank to play against in the right hand and right positions.

rip the Chinese medium line with how good the russian medium line looks, like even the tier ten Object 430U has the spaced side armor and you can grind for 5 tier 10 mediums using 2 tier 9s that i heard are VERY good.

 

the main selling point of the 121 (being the 122mm) got replaced and even Topped with the Object 430U having better everything.

You would think the devs would buff the Chinese mediums so that they could be a viable alternative to the Russians, but seeing as they tried to nerf the 113 of all things because a bloody spreadsheet told them to, I’m not sure balance is one of their strengths.

ya, isnt the 113 one of the least played Tier 10 heavy tanks? i almost never see anyone playing it...

Edit: as in it is very surprising to nerf a tank due to "high stats" if almost no one plays it. i guess there was a few Uni''s that were dominating in it somehow? but usely  i would think looking at the battles played and stats compared to other heavy tanks a good thing aswell :D

I ground that thing out with daily xp boosters for nearly a year. I just couldn’t handle the gun handling, i think it is the vehicle i have retured to the garage most with.

121 is the same, i don’t recommend 


(And yes i do need a new banner i can't be bothered to change it yet)

It is my favorite tier 9 medium(together with 430ii)because of great gun and it is allways gettinf underestimated by the reds...(because of all these kind of posts).

sure you need to have a bit more skill to play it well, as you need to be creative to get a bit of extra gundep... so yeah not for everyone....
