After 103 battles with 71 wins, I think I can say I know a little bit about this tank. I played with the first three slots unlocked , used calibrated shells. I think this tank could do with a few minor changes . It needs an AP shell. Just 1 more degree of gun depression. And fix the frontal armor. Other than that I can safely say that this is an enjoyable tank with decent dpm, troll armor, and acceptable traverse. The gun is very much like a kv2, so I've had plenty of what the hell shots. But it works , I pulled 1,900 average damage in it, which is good for me. All in all I guess I'm just trying to say, don't write this one off if you see it on either team. Your thoughts? Cheers

EDIT, sorry for choppy punctuation, had a few drinks

If you shooot the lower part of the blade with 200+ pen you'll go through, even if it shows red

I can pen it with the Comet's AP easy. I remember Bushka pointed it out in his video on the tank. It's only the fact that few people seem to know this which saves it.

You may know how to play it, but most do not (myself included), although there was a guy with a 60% wr on my team the other day.  Was that you? Are you the only one in NA with 60% in the vind? lol

Goal: Suck incrementally less, day by day

It’s really just a better armored, but more sluggish, SU-152.  In a corridor fight it can be a beast. But the lack of gun depression is why I don’t drive mine very often. Roll over a cigarette butt in the road and suddenly you can only fire at higher targets. Someday in the far distant future I’ll buff mine with some second row equipment and really go to town. 
The point of the game is to win.  The purpose of the game is to have fun.  They are not mutually exclusive.

81 battles at 60% and it does seem to have some odd flaws despite it's good qualities.  Besides the broken armor holes discussed, the RNG penetration for HEAT MK VII are flat out broken.  I get more bounces, no pens with no messages, crit hit zero dmg or reduced damage hits with this ammo.  Last battle I hit an RHM on the side for 159 points of damage out of a possible 409-681?

I have had many battles where I  see below the minimum damage listed in the 100's?

 

And yes..FFS. Fix the declination. I cannot count how many times I have had to rock back and forth with a target in plain sight to get cannon to just go down an inch while on basically flat ground.  It's just silly.

So...HEAT MK VII still very broken.  Still pens for 0 dmg or bounces on nearly every hit.  Devs gonna address this anytime soon, or just keep selling broken [edited]?

I have near 400 battles with it and achieved 68%WR. I'd say the armour below the gun should be buffed, cuz it is supposed to be a siege tank or frontline tank with a few weakspots(bar above the gun, the view window, right side of the dozer blade, commander's hatch), not THE WHOLE FRONT. Other than that, the tank is amazing(ignoring the gun depression)

they made it like that so it is not impossible to kill from the front
