Tier IV armor and cannon with a worse pen than the T14. This tank has a very lousy pen of only 86 and is so slow it's boring to operate. I owned this tank on Xb360 and rage sold it, it was so horrible. Need more firepower? To bad, premium rounds give you a horrible pen of 102. No help there. And it gets really bad when facing tier VI. Want to waste some gold? Here's you opportunity to get the worst of tier V.

YES to +1,-1 MM. The game is more fun with PMM on every tank.

High tiered tanks, E100,IS4,E-75,ST-1 and T-54.

Maybe it's different on Blitz.

I've looked around online and can't find any benefits of owning this over the tier IV Matilda II. I'll be passing on this one.

It sure would be nice if WG dropped the stats of prems along with the bundles. Unless I am missing the info, I have not found stats of premiums I can go over before a purchase.

Matilda has the gun depression approximate to Dicker Max (-14), go to high grounds and use that to your advantage

I've wasted money on premium tanks and this tank is a poster board example. PSA to help save folks some money. T14 and A32 on the other hand are decent. The DPM on the T14 was severely nerfed for Blitz, but still an OK tank.

Here are some stats.

Cannon; sucks

Armor; same as the tier IV Matilda.

Speed; so slow it can't get out of its own way.

PMM. Pretty good against tier III and some tier IV. Too bad it battles up to tier VI.

It's a tier V(5) tank.  It should never see tier III(3).  Unless I'm missing something it will see IV-VI(4-6).  EDIT: that's IF IT HAS PMM.  Which is unconfirmed.

 

I agree.  I'm not certain why anyone would put a tier IV tank into a tier VI match...  I must be missing something.  -14 degrees of gun depression still wont fix the fact that the armor is well out paced at that tier, and with no speed the tank will be a sitting duck.

 

Imagine a Matilda where every match you're in, you're guaranteed to see a tier V...  And about 1/3 the time you see a tier VI...

 

I just don't understand this tank.  Someone please explain what I'm missing.

I couldn't agree more. The tank blows brown bubbles.

It sounds like it pales in comparison to my Black Prince. I don't think I'll be buying.

It's too bad, as I love the Matilda and the Black Prince. I would love to add this to my collection, but if it turns out like what is being said I think I will pass. I hope that it isn't the case though.

I really don't see much point in buying anymore premiums tier 5 or less...unless they are dirt cheap, like 3 bucks.

The main advantages over the MBP are a much better turret and much more powerful engine for better acceleration and faster turning. It also has higher alpha and slightly more gun depression. The pen is atrocious though so you have to work around that. And to anyone complaining that it has "tier IV armor", keep in mind that the Matilda has troll armor at tier IV, and good armor at tier V. It is not going to fare as well against VIs but if the MBP holds up for you, so will the MIV since it has the same hull armor without the giant flat turret.

I've been having a rockstar time in the Matilda IV

It may have same armor as the Tier IV Matilda but it has TWICE the horsepower of the Matilda and MBP....ALSO this is a 76mm gun with a very high rate of fire it can eat up tanks with low HP easily with a gun that basically aims straight down the gun depression is enormous

This thing eats other Matilda's and MBPs for breakfast



And the only bad tier V premium is that of the Matilda black prince....squishy turret and no extra horsepower and gun that is meh


This thing has alpha going for it....something that helps this Matilda survive longer in V and VI battles because it can hide longer to reset its camo and still do 120-200 damage by popping out once rather than sitting there like the tier IV British Matilda would do

I agree with Klaus_Klavier. My first battle was really OP resulting in an Ace Mastery. Please see my post First Battle Impressions - Matilda IV Ace Mastery

 

If you really like the British Matilda (which is me), the Matilda IV is very similar.

 

If you did not like the British Matilda, stay away from this one. It is just more of the same slow moving tank that crawls into battle.

 

But, worst tier V premium, no way. (Can I nominate the Ram II for that?)

 

Happy Hunting,

I like it. A liitle faster, nice alpha, good gun depression. First seven battles, 1415 average damage.

It as $9.99 with three days of premium added. Not very expensive... And although I only have played one match in it, it wasn't bad...what do I know. I buy every premium tank on Blitz-- mainly to have fun and collect...YMMV.
