I've had the Tusk since finishing the contract last November 2018. I play it here and there, but have yet to figure out the gun. Standard rounds generally do 320 or so damage, often far less. I hardly use premium rounds. Even hitting other light tanks, I feel like I rarely pen even when very close to my target (often side by side). I know the objective is to hit flat spots, but with the horrible aim time and horrific accuracy its rare that I hit for any real value of the gun's potential. I have pulled up on the rear of T10E4s and put a round into their rear ends fully aimed at 5m and did 450 damage. Any pointers??? Seems like I'm wasting this guns potential or RNG is never my friend. Btw, I have like 7 crew skills on the tank.

I ran mine a grand total of 26 times after I completed the contract in November. Just got burned up on lights. RNG has not been my friend in it most games.  Premium rounds are the best from what I have heard.

If it's exactly like the 152mm on the Sheridan, you must go over flat surfaces and, still, can be quite trollish. I tested it in a game with both HE and HEP (not HEAT at all), and if you know what ammo choose for what target you can even get surprises like a 700ish damage shot in a T57 Heavy's hull.

Like all derp guns it is very RNG dependent.  You have to do your best and roll with it.

If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send a message to Prof935 (xbox) or dimka935 (ps4).

Today I put a fully aimed Premium round into the rear end of an opposing, nonmoving, tusk from 15 meters. It did 86 damage. He then returned the favor with an unaimed snap shot which destroyed my fully healthy tusk. Got to love skill based rng.

In my view it’s simply fun tank for occasional lolz. So my best games are blessed by RNGessus in run - close range hit - flee style. But - yeah, the most games the RNG is trolling. And it’s not a sniper. 
Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!
