So I’ve researched the Type 61, its turret, and plan to get the free xp for the gun before playing around with it. I’d like to know what your experiences with it and the STB-1 are however, and if the STB-1 is worth the grind. Also some guidance on how to play it from those who have experience with it are appreciated. :)

STB seems sneakily under-rated, with a decent turret. Looks awesome, if you care about the aesthetic portion of a tank.

Funnily enough, I ran the Type with the 90 and 105 interchangeably- I found both guns very usable. 

STB is dangerously underrated- however, certain mediums out-perform it. I like mine and find it quite comfortable, personally. 

 

EDIT- 

Turret top can be trusted, but front can be penned. On the STB. I'd say it's fully worth it. 

Type- play it like a nerfed PTA and then you'll show results akin to a buffed PTA; that's how i found it personally...

Btw don't get compfy with the type 61 gun handling. IMO the type is pretty much a patton without the armor or dpm but has pen or the leo without the mobility but has gun depression.

However the stb has god awful gun handling

I hated the type 61, it is huge with paper armor, mediocre mobility and rate of fire and the gun isn't as accurate as the pta's.

 

i hope the stb is much better.

STB is a good tier10 medium, absolutely worth it if that falls in your play style.

 

Type61 on the other hand is semi junk. 

It is slow.

it has no armor.

it is tall.

ok that’s the entire line and it’s compensated for by a good gun, but read below.

it has a giant cupolaairport-type control tower

the camo rating is that of a E100or close to. Some IS-7 with camo on, might outspot you f f s. It simply has the worst camo ratings of all mediums, ex aquo with the enormous E50, and very close to heavy tanks, without any of the armor.

 

as a result you will be shot from all sides before you even know about it. If you survive, you will be pushed because you can’t run, only crawl. finaly, you are subject to HE all around , which makes it a very very dead tank in no time.

 

good luck.

​Gee you had to say that. Now I went an got the STB-1. Like I needed another tier 10. Tell me, because I seem to listen to you, what is the best Equipment and Provision Setup? And yes I golded (is that a word) my equipment because I can. And hit me up with a toon when you play so I don't screw myself up on this tank's WR like I have accomplished all by myself on my other tier 10 tanks.

Type is a trash tank, STB is wonderful though.

When you reach tier 9 at that moment you learn a lot about how to drive meds, it's most of the same, it have an accurate gun, nice gun depression, you need to play that tank on second line, map awareness is a most, hide your bigger cupola you will get a lot of bounces. STB1 is an amazing tank worth the money...I learn how to play it watching videos of a Russian superuni bertushka, he play the hole line since tier 1 to 10, many Mastery Badge he got in that tank.

Would you suggest that i try to grind out the 105 with the 90mm instead of just dropping free xp?

If you filter out the grind and crew training (200 games), I quite enjoyed the Type. It’s quite an effective tank. I haven’t yet purchased the STB so idk.

Just say 'NO' to Vanity
