Many say this tank is horrible, but with a couple of active brain cells its a tier 10 gem that is rare on the field.  Too many people over look the gun depression, 420 base view range, and minuscule dispersion during movement and aiming.

No1 says the m48 Patton is a bad tank. The only thing that makes the Patton a bad tank is the fact that the leopard 1, e50m, and t62a exist, because they can do anything (with the exception of using gun depression which is easy enough to not need) the Patton can, only better

something, something, something, dark side...

I love the Patton. It has easily become my favorite tier 10 in the game for its spotting capabilities and all-around good tank nature.

It's not a bad tank until you compare it with any other tier 10 medium lols.

I wouldn't say it was bad comparing to the other mediums tbh

Still has far better minimal dispersion than any other medium.

The patton is good if you don't have an E50M.

The Patton is good when you do have an E-50M

I have a Leo 1 & an E-50m. Soon to have a T-62a and a Batchat 25t as well. I don't really see much reason to put much work into getting a Patton as well. I'll probably get one eventually (I am at the pershing atm) but i'm certainly not in any hurry.

 

That's not to say it's a bad tank. It just doesn't have any standout features compared to those four.

Its standout features are its gun depression and gun dispersion/aim time

Leopard 1 has the same gun depression (9 degrees) better dispersion (0.3 vs 0.36) and better aim time (1.9s vs 2.0s), and is also more agile and faster on all types of terrain. You can argue Patton has better armour and it does. But as a general rule of thumb you don't want to get hit in either as your unlikely to bounce.

The leopard 1 has far worse gun dispersion. One of the worst of the tier X mediums in fact. Also has almost no armour whereas the Patton turret can bounce some shells.

leopard 1 has 9 degrees. Same as the 48 patton. Only tank that beats them (At tier 10) is the FV4202 which has 10 degrees.

Dispersion, not depression. Leopard 1 has bad dispersion values

Folk was wrecking in his Patton today when we platooned. It's a good medium just like any other Tier 10 when in the hands of a skilled player.
