Nice. You almost had them. Cool to see the tank in evasive action at the start and sneaking around at end. I imagine the turret comes in very handy in those situations and makes the tank fun in a unique way. That flexibility is the reason I have been curious about this tank for a while.

Got the 2nd mark right after that battle. Been playing it most of the day and it really is one of the most fun tier 10s. I've had 5 games close to 7k just today. Even when you get himmelsdorf there's still opportunity to do damage by shotgunning a clip into a couple tanks

It's worth the grind. Vive la tier 10.

I am grinding 4 tier 9 arties now.

The US, BRITISH,RUSSIAN, and FRENCH.

The French one is the worst.

You get spotted even if you can move.

It simple does not do enough damage so France is still last.

I reached the point of running 100% premium shells and it does acceptable damage at a high cost.

With WOT tossing 6 million a month at us why not?

Out of 26 current tier 9's I am grinding now this is one of the worst.

They need to buff the shell damage.

Tier X is silly fun. Go for it.  Fun for lobbing, fun for hunting down other arty with that speed, or shotgunning. 

 

Unfortunately, instead of decreasing the loading time, as they should have, they inexplicably increased it.

I have played a few battles in the 155 55, and I really like the turret.

From a competitive standpoint no not at all. If you already tried out other Arty and want something different tho it's really the only Arty in tier ten that plays any differently than the other 4. Just expect to lose alot, it's server win rate is really bad for how mobile it is.

MOEs so I can pretend like they matter

Push to the BC 58.  That is one of the 3 arties in the game that actually annoys me when it is on the red team.

Yes, I can imagine the M53/M55 is superior. I unlocked it, but I do not have any spare American crews at the moment. 

 

Thanks again. It's a little difficult getting comprehensive info about SPGs -- the stats available on most sites refer to the PC versions of SPGs. The performance of arty on the two platforms seems very different.

 

Ehhh, ya kinda don't need a crew for arty.

 

I did the Russian line first and swopped the crew out into a tank 3 times, only downfall is not being 100% and not having BIA, other than that arty will still do good.

 

I train crews while doing the arty lines, when i unlocked the tier X French arty, they both got a new crew.

 

The 9, i played for a while and still pushed up the MOE to 80% (was 70% when the crew was pushed into a tank.

 

So if ya want you can play the 9 and still do good !

Update.

I unlocked the 155 58 today. So far, I love the mobility. But I am not comfortable with the crazy long reload. The autoloader is pretty fun when I pin someone down, but that doesn't happen a lot. More often, I feel like I'm missing out on shots during that reload. I wish I had the option to select between the two guns at Tier X. I would keep the 155 58 and prefer the single-shot.

To recap 100%, The 155 55 is, IMO, definitely a worthy upgrade over Tier VIII. Thanks, everyone, for your help.
