One of the reasons why I decided to buy a premium tank for this account, is that since the new cash balance update, I find it extremely difficult to get enough cash to buy new tanks in a reasonable time frame, even with a 65-70 wr average, and while using nearly no additional rations and very selective usage of premium. It is not a Steel Wall contender; do not ever sit out in the open taking shots. Also, unlike most other prems, you do not need to fire gold on a regular basis. The tank has great hull and traverse speed but it can't brawl due to poor armor. And if that means running some or a lot of gold rounds, then I do it. If a Type 59 is coming at your, and you ram it, it will hurt the Type 59. The Lowe basically gets 20 more pen, not a deal breaker, and I think slightly more alpha damage, but both come at the price of nearly double the reload time.
Btw I would like to know if it prints out credits like tier 8 premium heavy tanks. Only 40 rounds with that reload is pretty bad ammocount. It's also very possible that, with practice and experience, your premium will become less of a disappointment to you than it currently is. It is a heavy on pc and it is huge, this combined with it seeming to always get spotted leads me to believe it has horrible camo. In a tier 8 game this tank can really abuse its potential view range with coated optics 440m effectively with optics. And those duel with fcm were unfair, imo.
I can't imagine why anyone would use gold rounds in a premium tank in the first place - it's counterproductive. But please don't buy it. Don't let yourself get in trouble because of the speed though! An average match earns me 50-60k credits. You'll get scout medals in this tank. What equipment do you folks suggest for it? Stay back and snipe in the first third of the game, flank when about a third of the enemy team is dead, then hunt down the stragglers in the final third of the game.
Good reload on the gun with nice accuracy and aim time. The gun handling is excellent, gun depression is good. This tank is quite large, but has a nice health pool and view range. Hits 50 and above quickly. It feels like a faster type 59. Netted me a Scout Medal in my 3rd game, something I don't normally get.
While in theory it's a good money maker i find it not to be,it's certainly not the cash machine the lowe is. This kind of situations are stressfull but very satisfying when it ends up the best possible way. How is the credit earning? Tag wotguru if you enter! Lack of gun depression is pretty bad, but there's so many tanks with no gun depression anyway! No-one has made a secret of this and it's only going to be a surprise to people who buy one without doing a little research first. Splash is rarely an issue.

Might cave and get it and pretend it has a giant cock on it though. Who is the best person to watch on youtube play this thing? If you remove those two tanks the tier 8 premiums are fairly balanced across the board. Ah thanks for clearing that up for me. You'll need a radio operator I think? We just wont like you much. This tank wrecks others in Tier 7 and can still be annoying in tier 8 and 9 matches. Well worth the asking price and even better with the rumored discount! Despite it's speed, never lead a charge, lol.
Good reload on the gun with nice accuracy and aim time. Seriously, this tank is all about the view range, mobility, gun, and camo. Not worth buying c No Auto Loading Gun Yep u heard it right. This entry was posted in by. So what should we call it? There is a new French prem heavy coming.
I already have the is6 and is2sh but I'm not a big fan of heavy tanks. Fast forward to this weekend and I bought the 50t on discount, stuffed the B1 crew inside, trained a 5th crewman and set about to find what's what with the 50t. But if you want to wait until you get a different tank and you are tight on money, don't get it. The great news is you often don't have to be too close with an excellent 400m view range! The excellent mobility and decent speed make it more of a medium - especially when regarding its armour. The 50t does not handle like a heavy. The gun depression is -8 degrees, which is above average ~6-7 is average. It is open topped, so it doesnt take arty very well.
Big package deal is a waste of money, if you want the special camo then buy it all seperate, the gold that's included is worth more then the price difference and is half way to a second tier8 tank. It's not a tank to play casually at all. But it reloads in just under 8 seconds and is accurate 0. The track and turret traverse speeds are quite good as well. The tall profile requires you to aim down more than say a T54E1 and its lower profile. I have been trying the new French tier 8 premium heavy tank on the test server.
So, with all the good, where's the bad? This is in part caused by Strongholds tier 6, 8 and 10 and clanwars tier 10 only promoting having highly trained crews on these tiers. Great credit making capabilities, albeit not as good as a Type 59 because Chinese bias. Running with Vert Stabs, Rammer and Optics. On the other hand, if you can get the tank into this second-line role, it can be a phenomenal fighter. Purchasing through affiliate links is an easy, painless way to help out your favorite bloggers.
