As per title, did it receive any buffs recently?

 

Thinking of trading in for it.

NOOOOO! Stay far far away. The Turan III is the better of the Czech prem tanks!

I got one from chest and there is really not much to write home about. Turan at least has decent gun depression and can work ridgelines.

 

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

3 MoE tanks: T-34, Pz IVH, Tiger I, Pz.Kpfw. T 25, M7, T-50

It's not that bad. Some people like it. I like it. This has already been covered quite throughly about two weeks ago here on the forum.

 

Let's say that it's not immediate to use, and is a bit behind the competition of Cromwell Berlins and T-34-88's, but since there aren't that many Czech Premiums around you can buy it and the world won't explode.

It's a rather mobile mid-range support tank, has little armour so just take cover and avoid getting hit, relocate swiftly and punish already engaged enemies.

I repeat, it's nothing like the Cromwell or the T-34-85 & friends so I wouldn't use it for stat padding and seal clubbing, but if you're looking for a crew trainer, credit earner and you're already used to the other Tier IV-VI Czech tanks you should feel at home.

It's terrible, the dispersion on it is incredible - whatever size screen, you need a bigger one. Aiming takes about half an hour. So you race in straight lines (doesn't like corners!) to a key location, pop out with no armour and sit there for ages before you can shoot. Concealment isn't great either. 

 

Saying all that I like it. I shouldn't but I do. I wonder if I just feel sorry for it in an underdog kind of way. The bizarre part is that it is the antithesis of a crew trainer. I can imagine that it could be fun, if you have a Czech supercrew to put in it. But my Czech crews are all rubbish and that would defeat the point anyway. 

 

I'm not sure what else to say about it. I got it because it was dirt cheap in the personal offer, even though I knew it was bad. It is more fun and easier to use one of the TT mediums to train crews, but you can have good games in it if your expectations are low. 

 

If and when it hits, the gun hits hard. I do like it, but think it is niche. I don't want to recommend it, as I think most players would loathe it and it would be worse with crews that actually need training rather than just polishing up.   :)

I have both Žiška and Turan, and although Czech TT is quite small there are some keepers in that tree so you should have at least two if not three crews trained. I think they have TVP 50 premium being tested on PC. Supertesters said it's even better than tier IX T, so we have something to look forward to.

if you like the t34 and t34-85, spot, snipe and attack not by front, it's good and fun.

Thanks, currently grinding skills on the T-24 but unlocked the T25. Lack of a trainer means only 2 skills on that crew so far!
