So I just got this tank out of a crate on my EU account, and I was wondering if anyone had any tips for it. Thanks.

Yeah. It's pretty good. Consider of it like a Comet but without any armor. Thankfully, its front is not weak enough to get penned with HE or HEP, so people will basically only be shooting AP at you. It's actually a tank that you can be quite aggressive with IMO, because it has amazing reverse speed. Like literally, it has 30+ kph reverse speed. This extra mobility allows you to get out of situations when you can't afford to spend the time to turn all the way around. 

 

Now, it has good DPM for its tier, and the gun handling is decent with a fast aim time so you can squeeze off shots easily. However, this gun has no penetration so make sure to bring lots of premium ammo. The pen is so bad, you will bounce most of your prammo to the side of an IS-6. So try to avoid going against Tier VIII frontally, ever, because you will get punished.

 

Good luck

Yea like Mav said, dont be afraid to run away. Use ur speed and play sorta like a bulldog with slightly more armor. The gun is quite accurate so is reasonably good for sniping i think. Definitely dont be too aggressive in it unless your completely confident.

The pen isn't THAT bad, AP rounds have 7 more pen than the comet to my knowledge, and 5 short of the T20's pen. 

 

APCR is a bit lackluster, at 200mm, but its better than the t-43's 194mm.

It was the last Tier VII premium I purchased with real money. 

Personally, I find the Comet superior to the T23E3, but you may have a different opinion.  It seems this tank is usually loved or hated.  I don't love mine enough to invest spare parts on it.

My very first higher tier tank, too bad I didn't ask this question, before running the guauntlet and driving it into the dirt.

I won this in a free crate months ago and played my first 5 games today.

 

First impression is less than stellar. Not as quick as I had hoped, though the reverse speed is a nice bonus that I will have to take advantage of later. Gun pumps out shells, but the combination of pen/accuracy/turret armor means you are not able to abuse it as much as I would like. It feels like a Cromwell B with a dead driver, broken engine... but up a tier.

 

At least it was free.

I bought mine with the nomad camo when it was new. 

 

Well balanced tank, if you can find the tank's niche it will bring you a good bit of credits.

I find that if you play it like a comet it does well but I play it like the comet and t20 had a baby and then it had rlly good reverse speed, equipment wise rammer , enhanced cabin , binoculars or camo ( depends on play style) second level is up to u. Gl and o7
