Agreed. All of the other British tanks have 226/258/42...not sure why the T95 chieftain has to suffer with the horrible tumor on the top of the turret.

Totally agree. This is should be obvious to WG.

I just wanted to create a new post for the same and found this one. I liked this tank so much when purchased it and I still like it.

 

It is so nice to play a hybrid of a medium and a heavy but I would NOT recommend anyone to buy this tank because a) hatch on the top b) poor pen. Seriously why this tank should be nerfed so much by introducing this large hatch. How player can use hull down tactic with such big weak spot. What was really the point of introducing tank with good turret armor and nice gun depression but with such a weak spot. It ruins the entire gameplay. I do not regret about money. It is not a big problem. But for sake of balance would not be better for blitz eco-system  to not have tanks that are crippled so much as Chieftain 95?

 

Pen problem makes this tank not a good farmer. Why someone would buy this tank after reading all these reviews knowing that playing this tank totally depends on using gold. I can afford, but many people are on budget and could not buy tanks just to try a new gameplay. They will never buy this tank as it is a poor earner.

 

I am a big fan of British tanks. They are so unique. So I am going to enrich centurion next month (run out of this month tank budget) and play it instead of chieftain. At least cent has better turret (no hatch) and it has better mobility and it has a way(!!!) better gun.

 

Do not buy Chieftain T95. Enrich Centurion. And price wise it probably would be even cheaper considering how much I paid to Chieftain...

Face, it's good to see you back.  I find the pen workable but that stupid commanders cupola is a major Achilles heal.

Yes the same for me. I can overcome low pen with gold rounds (not unusual for tier 8 heavies) but cupola is something I could not get. Wargaming already did this mistake with E5 and they have removed hatch recently. Why to make the same mistake again and putting this awkward weakspot. They should cut it off.

In my opinion the tank is just too situational.  The only place it can really shine is mid range hull down engagements.  Too far away and it struggles to land shots, too close and the cupola is a easy hit.  The cupola needs to either be removed, shrunk, or buffed.

If they do that i would certainly get one, it looks a lot like the pre haircut e5

The chieftain is pretty much unplayable. Its apcr can't even pen the tiger 2 up front, and its too slow to cod. Without a gun upgrade it stays idle.
