Pulled from crates (last time gambling from WG casino, I promise...). Guess a Tier 9 is a nice pull but unsure of this one...

 

On one hand, hull armor is worse than T-54. On the other hand, top engine is present here and gun looks like the best of both worlds from T-54. Amx Proto faithful here, and I have yet to find another Tier 9 med I enjoy more...


Anni is more overpowered than missiles were...will it get removed, too?

i like how it looks, imo it looks like a tier 9 version of the 121B.

That is well said. It played similar it just isn't as good tier for tier. 

Player_0000000007, you will still like the Proto better. The T-55 is a play for fun tank, nothing more. It's nothing special really. Some prefer the T-54 to it while others do not. It isn't a particularly great tank. Tier 9 meds are tough to play right now so... I'm trying not to be too harsh on it.. I want to like it but I find it just kinda boring right now honestly. I haven't took mine out in ages. In my opinion, I would rather play a tier 10 med to this 100 times out of 100.

Oooof. I haven't had any luck in the 121b lately, and this has even less gun depression... Is there anything really bad about it that makes it boring for you?

The tank performs better than T54 (but that could be because less players are using it ? we don't know).

Actually is the 2nd best T9 med.

Said that:

- The gun is superior (nice better pen with AP and better shell velocity) and that is an important improvement, 

- Turret is still decent.....and who needs hull armor in a medium ?

only issue with the turret (which it shares with the 121B) is the flat and weak turret cheeks on both sides of the gun.

The tank has very crazy HE damage, same amount as the lepoard 1 iirc. You can completely melt soft targets in the 55a.

That's odd bc I'm having some of my most success in tier 9 meds and lights these days. I'm finding that a good medium tank that rotates and gets out and spots early is a lot easier to win in than a heavy currently.

I seem to get nothing but tier 10 battles, in which case it just makes me wish I would have chosen a tier 10 med.

It is not that anything is really bad, it is that nothing is particularly good about it. Sure its solid, but boring in my opinion. I am sure there are others that like it. I just think the T-55A was about 3 years late to the party. It should have been introduced back in the early days when the T-54 dominated.

All the T55A that I've gone up against were not impressive.

I'd call it the thinking mans T-54...

   It has a better gun - at the expense of armor you shouldn't be using anyway, or at least relying on that way.

 

I haven't played it in a while though, pre Heavy HP buff I thought it was a gem, but like Eric points out - pretty much 90% of tier 9 games at this point (for me at least) are 9/10, and then I'd rather be using a tier X med with the superior pen, and generally better everything.

Depends on the matchup. If it’s you and a green med vs 3 top tier red meds there’s really not much you can do.
