One thought just occurred to me, what if I use my free XP to get the 110E5 first, and then come back and grind all the modules of the 103? On the long run, I'd save 60K free XP by getting the 103's top gun directly from the 110E5. Good idea?

Upgrade/Max it, play it, enjoy it. It's a fun tier 9 for sure. Each player will have their own opinion on what is the "most fun" or "best" Tier 9 heavy. For me right now that goes to the Conquerer but I thoroughly enjoyed the 103 and IS8 (for some reason did not enjoy E75)

The armor can't stand long enough when an IS-6 can penetrate you're lower plate with AP.

 

"Better chance of bouncing a shell" and any American tank shouldn't be in the same sentence. Anyways, the T-54 with the D10 gun shooting AP can pen the lower plate of an E5. It can't penetrate the lower plate of an E-100.

 

Uhm. . .no it can't. It is very difficult to reliably penetrate the E5's lower glacis with standard AP from the D-10T2S. And the 122mm D-30 on the IS-6 also cannot reliably penetrate the lower glacis of the M103 - even with APCR. Take a good look at armor inspector and check your facts.

The point is moot since no tank should be flaunting its lower glacis anyway

Do not skip. If you don't learn the M103 and play it well you will be terrible in the E5.

With the new Japanese line coming up soon, now I'm thinking that I should save my free XP for the new line of tanks!!!
