Just received it, had to pay $8 worth of Gold for it because I had 5 horrible games at the end leaving me short.

 

What are the recommendations for Equipment, Consumables and Provisions?

 

Im sure this question has already been asked but I did a boy look and couldn't find it

I've been runaming it with no equipment ... it is actually a pretty good tank.  I plan on gun enhancement ... not rammer.  It needs a bit more penetration.

You say 5 horrible games at the end? No [edited]! Welcome to the world of wargaming algorithms! I had 5 crap teams as well. Ended up as top tank in every match, but the match making algorithms gave me a bunch of [edited]players, playing [edited]tanks. 

 

Whom in their right mind goes into a ratings battle with a t-49 or lttb? You know your going to face the is spam.

1:
  Calibrated Shells (The base pen is pretty bad)
  Enhanced Modules (Duh)
  Optics (Duh Again)

2:
  Gun Laying Drive (Not sure how supercharge would benefit)
  Armor or Hitpoints
  Traverse (Acceleration is a!ready fantastic)

3:
  V-stabs (Make it an even better snapshoter)

so far I've got calibrated shells, optics and crew protection as the driver seems to sit behind a sheet of tissue paper.

Big Gunz and Ammo Rackz.

Just run Rammer and Optics, and whatever 2nd equipment. Standard provision set - two food and fuel.

I'd argue that calibrated shells would be more beneficial since the Cheiftain lacks in sufficient pen.

Even without the Calibrated Shells, it can pen IS5's lower plate with the standard AP round. To me, that's good enough.

 

DPM matters for the Chieftain, because 1) the armor won't hold against lights and mediums rushing in, and 2) it can't afford trade a shot-for-shot against other tier 8 heavies that have 400 alpha gun.

Totally agreeeeee

 

Calibrated shells doesn’t do much for it.   

    202 base AP pen isn’t bad.   It will pen IS-X tanks. 

Even with CS your APCR won’t do much on a E 75 or ST-I. 

 

I tried both and ditched CS to go back for the Rammer.    

 

I personally dont think EGLD is useful on this tank, as you need to be still - and that means red will be aiming at the cupola. 

  Super Charge allows you to pen better at range - and remember this tank is really a slow med not a heavy. 

That said the timer just ended on my SC (I unlocked that L2 slot last)

 

Enhanced Control for added traverse is needed.  It has good terrain resistance so take all the traverse buff you can.  

 

 

I just started the timer on my Vstab.

I think 5.5 was good for the game - But I also want my Kenny OP nerfed
