It was and still is my favorite MT6 among all the others.
It was ugly as hell though.
- Amazing 88 L/56 gun. Even considering how WG hates it by giving it atrocious accuracy.
- Decent RoF.
- Decent damage per shell.
- Acceptable pen with AP and APCR.
- Good mobility.
- Good top speed.
- Decent frontal armor of the top turret.
- Low profile.
- Decent gun depression.
It was basically M4A3E8 but short and with a stingy gun, minus vstab.
When it was moved to tier 5, i have tried VKP, it was basically the same deal, except huge in size and with an awful turret, but WG took away that too.
So i guess the closest thing now is Skoda T40, but not really.
Well, may be one day WG will add T-34-85 with a chambered gun for 88 German shells or outright T-34-88, since historical accuracy went out of the window years ago, plus it's on WoT Console.
Still, it will never be the same deal.
