I’ve run into the 38 numerous times today (it always seems to be on the red team).  I’ve been running my A 20.  It seems to be kicking butt.  One guy put out on global “I’m 12 & 0 with this today”.  It can be whacked, without a doubt.  I’ve taken it out a couple times and watched some team mates take it down. It seems pretty quick with a decent punch.  I don’t spend real money on this game, so I would never buy it.  It does look like a lot of fun to play.  Seeing as I’m in a t4 & it’s a t5, maybe I just need to get used to it.

It is cute as a button, I'll give it that. Probably would have been an auto buy for me pre-5.5 for the low price they are asking.

No low tier premium is worth any money after 5.5 imo.

It's a fun tank. Reminds me of the T-25.

It’s ridiculously OP 

 

Ace bar is 994 base exp 

 2,200 dmg 4 kill.  

 

Hull armor is ridiculous turret is small enough if you move it’s hard to hit. 

 

It’s a med that can gun down a KV-1 without breaking a sweat.

C6, so compared to the Pz V/IV, I'm not seeing a whole lot of difference between the two. There are some but it seems they cancel each other out. I feel like the V/IV has lost some of it's OPness with the recent changes. Tier V is not the same as before, and I am cautious to drop some $$ on the Krupp, especially since I have the V/IV.

The V/IV is a little faster, but looking at them in game the Krupp hull was red upper and lower - while I penned the V/IV with AP both upper and lower.  While I had to aim and pen the cupola on the Krupp. 

  I had two red Krupp’s just bounce about 11 shots off me in response.  

 

The Krupp also seems to have semi-decent gun depression.   I didn’t look in game at the stats - I figured it’s tier 5 I’ll just wing it

The Krupp has 8 degrees gun depression and averages 160 on the AP round (giving it 1236 dpm without equipment and provisions).

The small stature lets it hide in very good spots.  I was able to side hug a Pz V/IV (carefully because it is lighter) and he was not able to hit me.  (I was moving as well)

The gun is about a laser as you can get at tier V.

 

I would say that it is a bit strong right now.  The mobility is a bit sluggish, but amazing turret traverse and good hull traverse help it.

 

I am not the best player, but am 5/5 with 100% survival and averaging 970 damage per battle.

 

Ace bar is a bit higher.  I have had 1059 xp and only received 2nd class

4 kills and 1565 damage vs a team with a Weak/SRT  'toon only got me a Class 1 Mastery despite my Kolobanov's carry at the end.

 

*you should receive extra base xp for every unicum you kill, and triple that amount for killing both members of an unicum platoon.

AP pen is a tad low, Dpm and mobility are a little below average for a tier 5 medium.  Front hull armor is great against 4s and some 5s.   

 

This tank will will be above average when high tier but will likely suffer more than the average tier 5 medium when low tier.

Only if you're on red and in low tiers. 

I may have a few too many tanks. I think I was over 150 in garage by last count.

Agreed.  I got an early ace before the bar had risen off the initial set by WG. 

  It’s going to be significantly higher for a while.

Yes because the three games I played in it to ace it clearly is breaking the game.
