There has never been a better premium than the T-54 mod. 1.  There is no better Tier VIII medium or anything else that isn't premium.

 

The turret is tougher than Turkish prison and it rotates more like a T-62 than a Tier VIII tank.  The armor and its traverse are both great.  The only weakness of the tank is that it takes a few seconds to accelerate but this isn't important;  

1. most ankle biters that would circle you will bounce unless they aim well and are lucky.

2. you will still be able to easily circle any heavy you could circle in a T-44

 

The gun isn't insanely fast but it isn't slow like the Type 59.  You won't see people drive out of your field of view while you go super saiyan with rage while looking at the reload reticle.  The penetration is what you would expect from a Tier VIII but it feels much better than the T-44.  Maybe this is because the platform is more stable or because you aren't driving really fast in a desperate ride for cover.  T-54 mod. 1 takes its time getting from one point of cover to the next because it doesn't fear the puny guns of its rivals.  The tank doesn't go up hills very fast but this isn't important;  you can change direction and traverse your way up a hill faster than a stupid tank that wants to drag race up there and get shot right away.

 

I love the Dracula, the Helsing, the IS-6, and the Lowe.  They are all fun to play and good for making silver.  If I only got to keep one premium, it would be T-54 mod. 1

 

If you are driving a Type 59 from here on you really can't deny that you're a hipster.

I'm not convinced that it's the best yet but it's a great tank. It's fast enough to get you to where you need to be.

A solid sales pitch for the T54 mod! I sorta feel like I am at a car dealership checking out a sweet new ride I can't afford.

I am not sure it is the best ever, the IS-3 defender might take that. That said, it is an amazing tank.

It's awesome. The weakness is facing tier 9, low penetration, and only -6 degrees of gun depression. But they are a good balancing factor.

Gun depression woes are overstated a lot of times.  I love having a good American or British tank that can go on hills but I know that if I'm going to drive a Russian tank that it's just a matter of switching tactics.   

 

Being completely honest, I'm not a youtube maker or a shill or anything but I definitely would recommend this tank to everyone who even remotely likes Russian tanks.  I can't think of a more forgiving tank to play, and it is good to have a medium for getting silver that actually feels somewhat like the ordinary tech tree tanks at the same time.

 

edit:  to clarify, this tank doesn't feel like a gimped T-54.  That's how Type 59 feels and, even though I like Type 59, I've never been a huge T-54 fan.  This one really just feels like a T-44 with heavier armor.  I don't know how that works out, stats wise, but having enjoyed the T-44 I can only say that it just feels better than the T-54 in my hands.

It's a really nice tank but not the best by any means. It's mobility and gun handling was sacrificed for armor which is quite trollish but not overwhelmingly bouncy. Still nice though.

 

Did I mention that it's nice?

It's a great tank all right, I still think the Type 59 is better with its flexibility of more mobility and gun depression. But you are correct it's a strong tier for tier 8 medium which with its armor and traverse speeds can take anything on

I agree with Bolo.  The T54 mod 1 is my favorite premium.  The T44 is my favorite med in tier 8 and the t54 plays just like it but with troll front armor.  At same tier or lower you can fairly easily bounce shots and the gun is decent.  I played the T54 mod 1 quite a bit over the weekend and it will be my new "slump buster" tank.

Question(probably a noob question), are the T54 Mod 1 and the T54 Prototype the same tank?  I see the Prototype on sale in the premium shop and and I see a T54 ltwt in the tech tree but I don't see anything with a "Mod 1" in the name.

Yes it is. The T54 Mod 1 was a prototype made leading up to the T54 at tier nine. So if you hear "T54 Prototype" it's the same thing, I prefer saying prototype than mod 1, just because it sounds better

This tank is fun to run. Way funner than the IS3D.

I've got 600 plus battles in the Hype59 and really find it useless. Can't brawl, can't snipe, oh but you can hull down with it. Sorry that's lame

 

The Mod54 can do it all

I can't say it's the best but it is fun, and I stand a chance in it.

Nobody should buy it.

Its a terrible tank.

Armor is tissue.

Credits are terrible.

Total junk.

I've played around 26 games solo. I have a horrid wr of 77%, Surv. Rate of 69% my damage avg. is 2341.

Other night, played 7 games was only able to get 2 measly Masteries.

Worst Tank ever!

If you want to just totally waste $30.

Dont say I didnt warn you.

That is basically it for me too.  It is simply more fun to play than an IS-6 because I've been grinding silver with IS-6 and Lowe for a year now.  Yes they are fantastic but it is tedious to play a heavy tank whenever I need to get money to buy something.

 

 

I don't know why it's called Prototype here and Mod. 1 there but they goofed at some point when they traded this great turret out for the T-54 stock turret.

What gets me is that somehow other t54 prototypes straight up pen me frontally. It's like the sight of your comrade tank causes you to load pramo or something.
