Just got a Lowie and in it's stats it said top speed was 35 km/h, well only way to get that fast is to go down hill on a road with everyone pushing. Would have got the T34 if I knew
the Lowie was so slow. I WANT MY 800 H.P. ENGINE and I'll give WOT's lawn mower engine back

You could have asked the community and or actually looked at what people were and have already said. Or possibly even ask lowe drivers what they think of it pros and cons.

It's a prem tank. Don't expect it to be as good as regular tanks purchased by credits. :Smile-bajan2:

Btw: it's still my fav tier8 heavy due to the gun and credits modifier value. I am used to drive slow heavy tanks so speed isn't of my great concern.

It's also a German heavy, which have never been known for their race-car like qualities. They all move like various glaciers, the Lowe just happens to be one of the most glacial.

The T34 isn't that much faster. You bought a heavy tank that feels like a heavy tank. Keep the lower front hidden and you're going places.

Also, that's not smoke coming out of the exhaust. It's credits.

Fun fact: the AMX 40 can go 50km/h. It can go about 10-15 on flat ground. Never trust the speed limit in stats.

With bia, vents and gas it's decently mobile.

The t34 isn't really any faster (except maybe downhill).  The tier 8 heavy prems are slow.

KV-5 needs to have something it can hold over Lowe and T34. Speed is it :-)

I have the Loewe for over 1k battles....everything is top notch and I can compete with every tier 8 tank out there...no problem....I can make a tier 9 tanks life very miserable and sometimes very short, and I can annoy the shit out of a tier 10. The Loewe fully upgraded regarding equipment, crew and crew skills is a totally different tank to the one you buy. I don't just play him for credits....I play him for fun battles....maybe that is just me....but try it out, and find out for yourself...

You realize the T34 is just as slow.
