I am currently struggling to consistently have good games in the Su 122-44.

 

The 8 degrees of gun arc really sucks in peek-a-boom as the target can easily shoot me and hide before my gun can accurately shoot. The gun depression has made me learn to avoid hills. Currently what works for me is like sidescraping in top tier, where the frontal armor can bounce shots and I can shoot them at a leisurely pace.

 

How do you guys play the Su 122-44?

Best guide I’ve seen on it.

I play it aggressively and run it with the mediums, i mean, it doesn't have a good gun for sniping and it can't work on a hill cause it has no gun depression, the best thing about the tank is its speed and relatively troll armor so use those things in your favor. 

Tier X: Leo.1, E50 ME100, Jageroo, MAUS, E4E5, M48, T57, Obj.140, T-62, IS-7, IS-4, Obj.268, STB-1, 4202, BC.25T, WZ-113.

Thx for the video! I will try to follow his advice!

 

I was searching for some video like this on the su 122-44 but couldn’t find much

 

 

Would face hugging Kv2’s a tactic? Also do you think sidescraping and using the troll armor work in battles?

I doubt you could face hug a KV2 but try it in a training room. I don’t think it would work because your front angled plate would be flat to him looking down on it. Even worse, he could shoot your roof top. Only E25s have a low enough profile to pull something like that off. 

 

As for sidescraping, never tried it. If you try it, keep the left side covered and expose only the right side, as it has the smaller spacing between tank edge and gun mantlet. Again test it with a friend in a training room. 

 

Honestly, I sniped a lot with this tank mid range (long range is horrid). Alternatively roll with mediums to help them quickly finish off enemy mediums. Or roll behind heavies, using them as meatshields between reloads. Really depends upon the map and your team composition. 

 

The best way to bounce though is the way he mentions in the first third of the video. You move the tank up a slight hill or ridge, causing the upper angled plate to become extreme, causing auto bounces. In effect, the SU-122-44 is like a lighter, less OP version of the WZ-120-1G FT (which has insanely OP frontal armour due to it being angled as well).

 

Once you get the hang of it. It’s an amazing little tank. Best game I ever had was one I did 5095 damage in it.

hmmm, i just got a 122-44 myself. its pretty fun to play though. also i have an 8.8 second reload which seems kinda OP for a 122mm gun at tier 7

I’m a 46.96 percenter

But I’m an IMPROVING 46.96 percenter

I am currently running with the camo net since I can disappear faster after shooting a round.
