Brace yourself for utter stupidity at unimaginable levels, it's really likely for you to not believe anything written here!


tin foil hatting starts here


Might as well call that excessive tin-foil-hatting on my part, but it's whats happening to me.


I played TDs before it was cool. It was also never cool to begin with.

Wrong tenk. You're describing KV-2.


Favorite Tanks: Hellcat, ISU-152  ||  Favorite Premiums: IS-6(apparently), T23E3 Nomad, Cruel Twist, T-34-3

Tanks I'm Most Hyped For: Skorpion G, M56 Scorpion(when they go down in price)

I'm the player that wrecks his WR by always switching to different tier and types. But Tier VI and below elite!

As for premium collecting...not counting tech tree vehicles, I'm only missing (big #) at the moment.

YES SO TRUE. The reason is because it is not american at all. It is a reskinned T-34 with the 76 mm.

In the words of an old PC guru, the T-34 medium tank is the tank ID #1. All other tanks are balanced to that tank's standard. So if the T-34 feels like any other tank, it's because it was the template for what a medium tank should be in the game early on in WoT creation.

If i'm not mistaken, American tanks are typically decent at firing on the move, so that might account for something, but I agree it's kinda weird...

Yes, I've noticed that about tanks in general, a lot of them seem to fire on the move or while leading more accurately than if you stop and shoot.

I've noticed the HE on the M4 and other Americans with the M1A1 gun seems to roll high when they hit.

Even the second gun from the top is very effective.

Those tanks also climb hills better than a person would think, even though top speeds are moderate.

I haven't played long enough to know for sure, but I've wondered from comments in the forums, if the American tanks might have gotten a little buff in recent months.

It doesn't seem like I have problems penning anything and they have great depression, elevation, and rates of fire up through tier 5 at least.

I can’t speak to the Tier V Sherman but it’s not something I’ve noticed in the Jumbo.  At maximum aiming it’s very, very accurate with the basic 76mm in the stock turret.  Quite good on the move as well, just not full aim accurate.


Historically it’s actually reasonable for the Sherman to have decent on the move accuracy as it was probably the first mass produced tank to have a semi effective vertical gun stabilization system. 

The point of the game is to win.  The purpose of the game is to have fun.  They are not mutually exclusive.

And you're complaining?  This tank owns tier 5, and its quite nimble. Very rarely do I sit in one spot with it for more than 10 seconds.

Tier Xs: M48 Patton, E100, T110E4, T110E5, Maus, T57

It's reasonable when on-the-move, and the decent pen helps, but still better when aimed.  After 1900+ games, I oughta know :D.

its my favorite tier 5 tenk and i have 1.2k battles worth of combat experience me and that little tank, i noticed its stock 75mm roles higher damage roles then the 76 M1A1 gun, ive been getting amounts of 180 damage out of it when highest i role on the 76 M1A1 seems to be 173. its very good at firing on the move if you unlocked all equipment and have all crew levels unlocked which makes it more accurate on the move then sitting still and blazing away at a target 350m away, a very reliable tank which i will play until the game dies or i do. But the 105 Howitzer is a super fun gun, i got my first 7 kills using the 105 which i was amazed i achieved with a howitzer. but a all round enjoyable tank to play.
