So the only grind I didn't finish was the Euro medium line of my current garage.  However while playing the USA missle tanks, i see the large turret medium with slower acceleration as less than threatening.  

 

When I play tier X mediums, I see the T-62a and Object 140 as my 1 - 2 tanks of choice.  They have solid turrets, 50+ kph top speeds, and solid penetration.  I prefer the T-62a overall, but I dont have a medium autoloader/reloader at tier 10.  Maybe keeping a single shot with consistent sub 6 second reload is a better option.

 

Overall I think the Sheridan is the tank of choice to play at this time.  The speed and acceleration is great, the hull armor gets bouces, and the nerf in penetration of APCR won't overall effect my gameplay in the next update.  

 

So what is the overall playerbase's opinion on the Progetto 65?

 

Is it out classed and out preformed by other tier X mediums?

I myself dont have the progetto 65 but i can tell you that its a strong medium tank that is very capable of reducing enemy mediums in a matter of seconds if given the chance. Its quite capable of trading damage with ease and is still left with a 7.5 sec reload on the 3rd shell which is nothing to scoff at when you are forced to take 3 shells continiously. It doesnt have armor but its frontal hull armor is troll due to its severe angling. And with missiles being criticized to the current extent i believe that it wont be long till they are removed

The Prosciutto 65 has a 90-day win rate of 56.5% on blitzstars compared to 54.5% and 54.0% respectively for the T62 and 140.  So on the basis of that data, I'd say no, it's the reverse - it's the stronger of the three.

The reload mechanism is so nice. Always a clip threat. Nice tank.

Progetto has been a solid tank even with the nerf.  I had a dismal run today in it but I put that down to me not the tank (and a few green that in three games decided to push me out of cover). 
 

I think the Leo 1, E50 M and T-62A are better tanks in the current meta - but the Leo has a very high skill floor that leaves no room for error.

So its worth grinding this autoreloader medium?

 

I figure i will still play the T62a most times.  The Pregetto is just to add an auto reloader at tier 10 that i probably will rarely play.  Just like the WZ113.

It’s still solid. The mobility loss hurt, but it was overcooked, now it just forces you to think on your toes, ie balanced. The reload mechanism is still tits and can be real trouble for reds not being able to know where you’re at with your clip. Only difference now is that you can’t be a Lone Ranger. Hang with another green and it’s still really good.
