I have wanted it forever and I have read about it but is it worth the gold? I like heaviuns and it certainly seems to fit the mold. Looking at the armor in the viewer, it looks fairly soft except the turret front. Also, it's not a pike nose? It appears to be one at first glance but once again the armor view makes it look flat.

 

Thanks for any input.

Armor and mobility is not bad. Gun is trash though. Don't expect much from it when in a tier 9 game as the pen is terrible. could use a few buffs IMO

Will WG ever have WoT offline like they promised?

I recently bought this tank because I like the looks, and for me, I really like the way the tank plays. It's not that I do great in it, but more how it feels to play. It feels like a slightly more mobile Defender 252. I need more games in it to start having good results, and I only have a crew with something like 4 skills, but yeah, like the tank a lot. YMMV!

Slightly more mobile Defender...with a weaker gun and weaker armor. Premium round is HEAT.

It is worth it just for looks alone, but if you want to have a good time you need to use a lot of heat

You sacrifice armor for better gun handling (vs the 112 which has the opposite).  You just need to use more premium rounds.  It still a very good tank and you will make money (even using premium).  WG has basically open up the wallets for players (silver accumulation) with all the ops.  Both Chinese heavies are good crew trainers if you’re not worried about silver.

Alpine Tiger doesn’t have anything in common with Defender as far I see in the stats and when I see it on battle . But in my view it’s like IS-6 with better prammo pen (it’s still something). I own it just because I’ve won it from War Chest. But I wouldn’t buy it otherwise and I think I still haven’t played it and just have left it to gather dust.

The gun is trash, can't hit the broadside of a barn from the inside.

I've only played a few rounds in it, but I like it......Just fire from hull down....Good tank, even with a 3-4 skill crew.

I know it is prettier than 112 but prettiness aside, 112 is the better tank.

Blind tank with 175 pen and a month-long aim-time paired with arty-like accuracy? Yeah have fun with that lol. Powercreeped into oblivion.

Thanks for the input everyone, I decided to pass on it for now. Maybe when there is a better sale but despite already having the Type 59 in the Chinese Duo there was just too much bloat in the offer.

 

Too bad there is never a decent sale on the 112, I like the armor on that better and it looks like it makes up for the gun more than the AP does. Chinese tanks are expensive!

Isn't it 15k gold?
I don't think anything is worth that much.
For that price, you can pick up three better Heavies at the moment.

You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.

Plays like a stock is3 but with the upgraded turret and pmm.... I'm when top tier you can smash.. when in tier 9 just pick your fights.. not a hard tank to play.. very much a heavium.. and the pike nose isn't as orodominp as on the is3 so angling works a little better.. I'm a fan

i won it on my second account when i bought 6 war chests just to give the account a small boost. i actually quite enjoy it over the 112 and is6. im running around 3500 to 3800wn8 on it, makes good silver.

im not sure what the outright cost is but those tier 8 prefs are expensive.

I got this from a crate a while back and have played it a few times.  Like people have said, at tier 8 can smash but at tier 9 is just ok.  I probably wouldn't buy it for the price but I am glad I got it form a crate.
