Forget the Lorraine.  Just got an object 140.  Damn that thing is a mean little tank.  Cranked out >8k damage and 6 kills my fourth time out of the garage.  My be my new fav tier 10.  Sorry Fatton.  Other than gun depression, the 140 has you.

Roger that!

 

The B/C AP is a lot better than its bigger brother, in all compartments of the game. And I have only four skills on mine. I can only imagine what it would be if I had the vision enhancing perks and gun stabilization, plus the stealth and driving helps...

 

Just fresh of my Stage 8 as I type; I am going to take a break before I get into 9 and 10...

I got 12 skills on my crew in it. Still get roasted but the 6 rounds per clip and speed of the tank is awesome. With the exception of a couple of T10s tanks I generally prefer the T9s

Dang, Stage 5 is the one I was thinking I'd need to buy-out.  76.8k xp & a fire in just my AMX 13 57 will be brutal. :(

 

You call that brutal I have the HMH version

What stage can you begin to buy out the Machine? At Stage 5 now, doubt I'll finish it before it ends so IF I really want it, i'll have to spend gold at some point.

Got The Machine last night.
1st game 1500dam and blocked 3900.
2nd game 3900 dam and blocked 1500!
Lost both.
I like the tank though, speed as Amx 50B like. Frontal armour rocks as does the turret. Interclip reload is great and overall reload is ok.
Penetration is a little lacking and alpha only 320.
I will wait till I have 50+ games in it before I decide either way but as I like autoloaders I reckon I will play it a fair bit.
As to the grind, well I started to get a bit tedious at about 250k into the last stage. But as I was so far in front of the requirements I just switched to playing my other T10s when I got bored, you know the death star, the waffle and the Jageroo. Guess I can continue the grind to the death barn now...
Happy tanking

Don’t need to wait for 50, 11 games in and I love this tank. Ok my win rate 45% isn’t crash hot but of those 11 games I have easily carried 7.
Mobility is a amazing relocate while reloading 26s, front and turrets armour rock

I'm at stage 9 and am enjoying WOT very much at the moment. I've been playing X's that I never get a chance to play. I rarely use every X2 in a session as I usually keep my 9's and 10's with crews after finishing a line, so have quite a few. Hardest stage was 6 for me, took me 4 days after the XP requirement to get 4 sniper medals and then got 4 in about 2 hours lol.

 

PS. First game today @ stage 9, I see my T8 Centenial is available to play, wierd, checked my tank filter screen and it's set to contract tanks so played a game. Went back to the garage and now the correct 9's and 10's are avaiable. Just a funny glitch I thought I'd mention.

 

Happy tanking.l

Finished yesterday.  I used the Centurion 7/1, Conqueror, Object 430 II, Object 140, and AMX 50B for the final stages.  I also bought the Bat Chat 25 t halfway through stage 10.

 

Three games in the Machine so far and it's my favorite tier ten.  4366 average damage so far with horrific silver losses as I spam HEAT.


I'm not stealing kills, I'm handing out Confederate medals.

Yeah I use a bit of heat too. Just like all autoloaders it’s hard to predict what pen your gonna need when you relocate whilst reloading. If you stay in the same place it is easier to choose.

wouldnt day it’s my favourite T10, it’s hard to beat the Deathstar, Batchat, or Batchat Arty ( yeah I said and arty, surprised me too). That said I have been playing it a bit and having that frontal armour and turret on such a mobile tank is Killa.

I'm on Stage 6 of the contract at the moment. Giving me a reason to play my Centurion 7/1 so I can unlock the FV4202. Hoping to at least make it to Stage 8 or 9 before the end of the contract. Hasn't really been a terrible grind IMO, but I enjoy playing the tanks required for the contract.

I just finished yesterday, started 4 days after contract was released. I thought it will be long and maybe boring by the end, but not, it took around 800-850 battles to get and I had around 2000 win8 last

months. I enjoyed the way as much as I like the Machine, or even more, just played the game and got all the requred medals. I got an is3, t10, is7, t62a, bc 25t, 50 100 and the comet at the beginning, by the end I bought obj277, amx 50 120, centurion mk I, cent 7/1, fv4202 and opened amx 50B. I enjoyed all the tanks, I played few heavies (mainly scouts and meds before) but now I was forced to figure them out - I got is3 and t10 2 marked, aced the obj277. Than I found a new super favourite med, the centurion mk I, I got 2 marks (go for 3 now), oskins medal, 4 times aced it and also aced bc25t and fv4202. Before only had jagdpanzer e100 aced in tier X... So it was good it got me to play more heavies instead of lights and have fun in tier ten. Great op, now I will play a bit less until September, but I anyway don’t play too much in summer:)

Finally completed this contract last night! I don't think I could have done it without the x3 Labor Day weekend. Thank you WG!

Please don't nerf this tank until after I get back from vacation next week!

Eh, not really. It’s fast but maneuvers slowly, it lacks alpha, pen, and clipping power, and it’s side armor is utter garbage. If anything I’d say the tier 10 TVP should get buffed back to its previous stats. This thing is great if it sticks with a pack, but it quickly finds itself out of place as a lone hunter. It may have a fairly quick reload, but the low pen APCR bounces a lot more than rounds from say a T57 do and they hurt a lot less. If it’s alone, once it’s rounds are spent, this thing gets buttered if it sticks around, and the slow acceleration/maneuverability mean it’s not gonna escape as fast as you’d think. I love over confident players in them, and I’ve shredded them in CQB with both my M48 and FV4202 by exploding the side armor. If they’re facing you at anything other than perfectly head on, overmatching their side armor is a breeze. I will grant it’s frontal armor is incredibly tough, but you need to be very conscious about making sure that’s all your opponent sees at all times.
