My review for the American tier 6 TD.

[My credentials] Mostly solo battles. Battles fought 132, Victories 88 (66%) Defeats 40 (30%)

Battles survived 64 (48%) Tanks Destroyed 167, Maximum Exp per battle 1374, Average score per battle 655 damage caused 1046 Enemy vehicles destroyer 1.3 Enemy vehicles spotted .7

 

I will make this pretty simple. This tank should be played conservatively. The two guns on the Jackson are both very good. The 76MM has a fast reload and acceptable penetration even in tier 7 games while the 90mm trades reload for firepower and penetration. When starting off in this tank I suggest  going straight for the turret then the tracks then the gun. Hopefully you have already researched all the engines from the Wolverine as they carry over to the Jackson. Because of the stock gun already being a very capable weapon in tier 6 games you do not have to worry about jumping straight to the 90mm When playing with the 76mm you should always be someones back up so when the enemy is focused on your team mate you can pop off a shot or two before going back into cover. I do suggest you load at least 10 gold rounds on the 76mm to aid you with attacking heavy tanks of your tier.

Once you max your tank with the 90 mm Your reload will be cut almost in half so it is even more important that you have an ally with you when attacking a target same with the 76mm. When the target is distracted with your ally you can pop off a shot before going back into cover.

Once again I suggest you load at least 10 gold rounds to deal with higher tier tanks.

If you have a open map camp and take shots at target that are far away. This is possible due to the accuracy of the guns.

Your tank has 750 hp so never over extend or force yourself in a position where you are out in the open without cover.

Thanks for reading.

Consumables:

The standard for me & alternative:

 

Fire Extinguisher 

Repair Kit

First Aid Kit

 

Equipement 

if you decide to keep the tank

Camo

Tank gun rammer 

Binocular telescope

 

Open to revisions from the community.

Thanks for the review. Not too long yet not too short - includes all the relevant information for success with the TD. +1

 

Also, I'd also like to offer an alternative for the consumables. Due to the fact that this tank should be played conservatively, perhaps the fire extinguisher and/or the first aid kit can be replaced with the Three Tool Kit. This can be quite acceptable if the Jackson is in a situation where it won't be fired upon too much. This opens up a slot for the Reload Speed perk which can help out if you do have to switch to a more aggressive role or if there are multiple targets in the open engaging a smaller amount of allies. The perk would enhance your sniping and supporting capabilities, hence increasing the DPM for the duration of the perk.

 

However, this alternative would mean an increase in the credit expense. Also, there is a chance of damage to modules and crew in quick succession, meaning that you would have to wait until the kit is ready to be used again and limiting the effectiveness of the TD during that time.

Wrong (subjectively)! One of the worst. Definitely the worst TD. Don't listen to people who say it's the same as the JPanther. I have a higher win rate and better damage stats on the JPanther compared to the T25. The JPanther seems to pen slightly better and bounce shots slightly better.

True enough, the JPanther isn't nearly as good as the beastly T25.
