Finally 3 marked this thing after trying about 80 games this month from around 88%. I've 3 marked a few lately but I feel 3 marking this particular tank is worthy of making a post.

 

Its not easy to consistently get a minimum of 3K combined to keep the damage standing, given the lack of armour, long reload and sometimes-troll gun.

Its even harder to get balanced teams (so you get long games to reload and unload at least 3 clips), the right map and game mode (so you are not forced to go brawl in corridors), RNG etc to get big damage games to boost you closer to 95%. 

 

I ran GLD, V Stabs and Vents. 

Only shot gold (cant risk not penetrating given the 48 seconds reload)

 

Cheers for reading.:medal:

 

Heres the last string of games for whoever's interested (in watching me spam gold)

GG, congratulations.

Question, was it really necessary to shoot prammo in that first game? I mean you were top tier against IS, m6 and such tanks, and AP pen is over 230 so that should be more than enough. Premium adds only 20-ish more pen, am i right?

On second thought, the first game shouldn't call for premmo, considering the composition and types of tanks in the enemy team. I spammed premmo as I was closing in at 93.8% I couldn't take any risk of any lol-bounces, especially after trying for over 80 games even from 88%. I had games where I opted not to use premmo and ended up only hitting/penetrating 1-2 shots out of the entire clip in tier 8 games (bouncing against black prince and absolutions LOL). 

 

But you are correct, the standard ammo penetration is 232 wheres the premmo's 263, so only 30 penetration is added, so it's probably best to use standard ammo in that game when I didnt have to face KV4s.

hmm I opted for GLD as gun rammer can't be mounted. Even with the GLD the long aim time (originally at 3 secs) makes the tank vulnerable in the open in close range/ hampers sniping at med/long range.  Not sure what else to equip other than the GLD, perhaps a spall liner to be arty-safe:teethhappy:

I run GLD on my T32-A instead of Vents. Minimal reload gain is not worth compromising the quicker time on target for me and do better with Optics, esp against the X's. Good job on the markz. :great:

Well played Sir! I have the same set up on mine and spam a bucket of gold because I find the gun to be woeful somedays. It's like the gunner gives a galic shrug every time he pulls the trigger.

There's no point going for spall liner. You can't armour plate a paper bag. :teethhappy:

 

I've got two marks, now I have the inspiration to try for a third mark. There's time in my schedule now I've done the T54

Congratulations. I'm close to unlocking the top package with the bigger gun.

What's your impressions on the 2 guns?


Remember, it's just a game!

Well played, I'm currently at the Tier 7 with intent to stop at this tank.  With most Autoloaders I go with V-stabs, Optics and Vents.

 

Whats your crew setup?

Thanks mate, congrats on the T54, that tank is on my list to 3 mark as well (sitting at 94.5% now). 

For the 50 100, as you have rightly observed, the gun trolls hard sometimes (like other french guns), hence you may feel to spam gold to secure damage like I did as you close in onto 95%.  I think the key to 3 mark this tank is really down to whether you are lucky to get a string of games allowing you to get 3-5k combined damage.  There may be times when you only get 2K or less (due to unbalanced MM and quick matches, or you get focused and wrecked early in the game), but these drops in damage standing % can be rescued and compensated by getting big games of 4.5K plus combined.  Hence, its crucial you don't get into Tier X matches often (esp. when serve population is low), otherwise even with premmo you can't pen and may get 1 shotted by Tier X TDs/ Arties. The ideal MM is full Tier 8 or Tier 7-9 matches with enough hit points for farming.  Good luck!

Keep grinding! Always go for the top package, I reckon the top gun has more damage per shot (300 instead of 240) with same gun handling.  Given the poor aim time and accuracy, let your aim completely zooms if time/situation permits to increase chance of hitting weak spots.  Avoid using auto-aim to shoot on the move if you can, even at close range.

You can keep this tank but many would ask you not to stop at this tank. Go for the 50B, even the 50 120 isnt so bad after the buff to gun elevation and depression!  Its much more balanced to have a 4-drum magazine than a 6-drum like the 50 100.  

 

My crew skills were: Sixth Sense, Brothers in Arms, Repair, Snapshot, Smooth Ride, Situational Awareness, Recon, Safe Stowage, Off-road Driving (originally used camo instead of this driving skill, but turned out camo skill wasn't too useful as I always get spotted when I spot/fire, whereas any slight boost assisting you to escape in soft terrain would increase survivability).
