Some game play from earlier today. As top tier, if your front hull does not make contact with another tank you may be shortchanging yourself on one of the Jammer's key assets, ramming potential. The engagement with the T23E3 at just about 2 mins in is a good example. And yes, the Snakebite should have been shut down sooner and coulda, woulda, shoulda but didn't. :playing:

 

 

I like this tank a lot. It's no good for stats though, just a fun tank to play. And apparently I have to pay lots of silver for the privilege. :teethhappy:

You trying to get 3 marks of excellence on your Jammer? Man. You need to play it like the T23E3. Use your ammo wisely. Try to deal more regular damage and get more assisted damage.

Actually just killed one.  Tough little tank.  Thank you and sorry to one of the 47R guys.  I needed one of those for my "Expert: Mercenary" ribbon.  Now, if I can just find a Lawgiver in the wild.

Not a chance on playing it like a T23E3, that's basically telling a bird not to fly. But when I'm ready for the third mark, I'll certainly make an effort, right now just having fun blowing through silver.

You're a funny guy. But yeah tough tank. The key is in the bum rush, most players resort to auto-aim, and the front of the tank loves auto-aim.

That explains why I bounced a couple off the front while on the move, then.  I auto locked him and was looking over to where his TD buddy was at, because he'd put a round in me already.  So, I was trying to get to where the TD couldn't hit me before I got him.  Had to get around to the side of the Jammer to finish him.  I was so close, I kept thinking one of my team mates was going to get him before me.  That's pretty much the luck I'd had the past few weeks while hunting for the Polish 60TP for that Expert: Poland ribbon.  I'd get close to finishing one off and a team mate would take the kill.  I never wished to be able to shoot team mates so much as the last few weeks.  :P

I love this tank! She is one tough cookie.

 

My Jammer at 1/3 health curb stomping two of it's peers, an A-44 and T20, back to back:

 

I was ready for Valhalla in the game of chicken with the A-44. But too much heat in the kitchen and he swerved last minute, out of the frying pan and into the fire. :teethhappy:

You already equipped your Jammer with Coated Optics, Rammer, and Gun Laying Drive. I think the Jammer is a Type 64 hooked on steroids. Hull wise. The hull part of the Jammer requires good angling and the turret part of it to negate shells. You should be able to spot and shoot multiple enemies within your range at any map. I hope you'll make those 3 MOE happen (on your Jammer).

Take my Churchill GC, for my example. It still has 3 marks on its barrel. It did things very different than what your Jammer has been doing recently. My Churchill Gun Carrier had to defend itself. I had to rely on things like its front end, its 94mm (32-pounder) gun's depression, spotted enemies within its range, and its alpha (each shell damage). I still got the Vents, GLD and Coated Optics on my Tier VI British tank destroyer (over 500 battles).

Thanks, when the time comes for that third mark I'll settle down a bit. At the moment seeing what results I can squeeze out while pushing her aggressively.

You actually own either a TV or a PC monitor. Using an LED monitor and setting it to Game Mode would make gameplay smoother than ever. Anyway. Hey. Keep trying to 3-mark that Jammer of yours, no matter what players' feedback on it have been. You should put either the Snakeskin or the Thorn camo on that tank, fozfactor. The Jammer is capable of being flexible on its own. Go with the Thorn camo (summer maps).

Not a chance I'm covering up that awesome looking jungle green and its patches of oxidization with anything other than clear, but feel free to customize yours however you wish.

You adding a camo to your Jammer should add an intimidation factor to it. Make the Jammer more intimidating and threatening to enemies than themselves intimidating Jammer.

Some players choose to not put camos on their Mercenary tanks, but there are those who do put the camos on their tanks. I understand. To some players, they think Mercenary tanks appear better without camos.

Channeling my inner Ivan Drago:

 

Maybe if the Jammer's gun were better I wouldn't ram so much stuff. :P

Typo confirmed! Should be "R" instead of "J" in the tank's name...

 

Spoiler

I do wish the mercenaries had better camo options.

Some Jammer gameplay working toward The Machine sticking to my golden rule: embrace any opportunity to deliver the front-end to the reds. Narrowly missed being rammed broadside by the T-44 and he ironically ends up doing me the favor. :harp:

 

 

Running on fumes at the end but managed to make some ok silver with no premium fired. This tank is a lot of fun to play but it's no money maker.

Since I've been playing the Jammer more, I love the thing. I've managed to use it more affectively with spotting and even as an assassin. Circled a caernavon to death from full health today. It took some time as you can imagine with the low alpha and all.

 

One of my favorite tanks.
