I don't profess to have this figured out yet, but the E3 seems to respond well to being a rolling bunker and just pressing forward. Had a Maus  underestimate the tank and I just wrecked him,  had a couple mediums try to stand off to me at mid-distance and that didn't end well for them either.

 

More fun to play than I expected, and much more usable compared to the T95 which I wasn't quite expecting either.

 

Any tips in the current Mehta to share?

I'm not quite sure why this tank does so badly in the given meta - because if you keep it pointed at the reds and hide the lower glacis, you're almost impenetrable.

Tanks:  _X: T110E5, T110E3, FV215b(183), IS-7, Obj.140  _IX: M103, T-54  _VIII: IS-6, T34, Lowe, T-44, IS-6, IS-3D  _VII: T-43, Comet, E25, AT-15A, SU-122-44
Usually on in the evenings Pacific time.  Intake Contact for Triarii Clan (PM for details)

It really is lacking in speed and track traverse.  It is sort of like the Maus in that some games you can be a real bully.. in others you get left behind and end up getting circled, tracked, shot up the [edited] and killed.

 

Where as in a tank like the IS-7 or OBJ268 it doesn't care what the matchup is.. you can always get out contribute.

 Well, that's a fairly important point.

 

 Going to get some more games and the darn thing but as noted by Reluctant above, this thing has potential.

try side scraping, and make sure your team is near to help. Stay at mid range to be safe from gnats.
