I thought I'd do a bit better in the T-34-85 than I have. Even though I have a rammer, my rate of fire doesn't seem to be as fast as some other 34's, and the Comet rof kind of kills it.  Seems pretty vulnerable to side shots too.  Anyway, just wondering about the strengths and weaknesses of the T-43...  I searched the board and don't pull up anything.

It's awesome. Everything a medium should be. Extremely similiar to Rudy.

I love the thing. It has great dpm, and while not as godlike as the comet, it has a bit more alpha (which I find useful). It also has really good side armor (around 70mm) which is extremely effective when sidescraping. Also, It has better depression than most other Ruskies, so there's that...

Love my t-43.  I'm a complete noob, but this is the one tank that makes me confident when I get on the field.  Only time I killed six tanks is when I drove a t-43.  Never drove a Comet, but I have driven a Panther, a T-20, and a T23, and this bests them all.

how do you have it outfitted?  I have the stock VI gun (very short barrel) and so far I've been crushed.  The HE doesn't seem to do much damage against my tier.  And if you have equipment, what ?

I like the tank almost more than I like the Cruiser IV and Covenanter, which are my favorite two tanks. It's top gun is very powerful and I've reached a top speed of 65 in it. Fast and powerful, the T-46 makes for a fearless tier IV

I run my T-43 with 38 AP shells, 10 HE (For dealing with Nashorns, St. Emils, and SP 1 Cs), Improved Ventilation, a Gun Rammer, and Coated Optics (Crew skills gives me a whopping 280 meters view range with optics). With a 100% crew, your reload will be 4.6 with the Tier VII 85mm and about 4.3~ seconds with the Tier VI 85mm. It has trollish but unreliable armor in my opinion, and is very mobile. Its traverse speeds are very similar to the Comet, 55~ for tracks and 45-50~ for turret. 

 

Overall, a solid medium tank with a lot of good stuff going for it. Also, it CoDs like a freaking beast. It can make enemy mediums have a hard time trying to kill you in close range.


I used to suck once. Now I'm just trying to get as good as I can.

so much you would assume the Rudy is just a T-43 with a different skin :P

 

It is a great tank, that whole line is reliably forgiving which people call Russian bias and they aren't wrong to jump to that conclusion particularly as the T-54 only got a prammo nerf after nearly 3 years of being king of OP.

 

You should continue up the line and enjoy :)
