So, what's your opinion on it? I've had quite a good record with the MS-1, getting it up to elite status and getting Top Gun today (destroyed 7 tanks) with its great 45mm gun. I think its gun really makes it great for the battles it gets into. :Smile-playing:

Most OP tank of them all!  :Smile-playing:

Ltractors don't stand a chance against it, and those Germans still complain about IS7's.

Yesturday we had a game with IS3 KT Ferdis you know the usual stuff. Enemy had a ms1 paired up with a su14. The bus ms1 and our hummel were the last survivors, our hummel engaged his assault hummel mode and took out the roaming su14. Their MS1 was capping.... our hummel rushes, he only has 14% left.

After spotting ms1 he shoots to stop the cap which was 90% already, and misses..... MS1 shoots him once, twice and we lost............. :angry:

Honestly the MS-1 with the 45mm is an incredibly versatile tank. Though a bit slow, with 50/81 penetration you can surprise quite a few people.

I managed to knock 1% off a T-54, which was INCREDIBLE. Check it out:

I have a friend who refuses to play anything more than tier 3 tanks and often he uses the MS-1 all day. He gets 7-10 kills several times a day in it because he has 100%x2 crew and bought all the special upgrades and perishables for it against new players. Its actually pretty funny because that tank with these upgrades is amazing.

Meh, I always liked the autocannon more.  You just spray it and something will hit!

MS-1 is an epic tank. I destroyed 2 tanks in my first game with it, and almost destroyed 2 others.

I just love my MS-1, I've got the best stats on it. I stay in a bush, wait for the enemy, and then attack them before they have a chance to escape! Then, I move from bush to bush, cover to cover and we win (If my team isn't a bunch of rushing, no tactics noobs).

Nice tank, the modern update on it is what year? I heard it was 1970's update. I cannot find it anywhere though.

I love sniping with it. Have scored 8 kills in 2 different games with it. The 45mm is the only way to go with it as well.

using auto cannon on the ms-1 isnt the right thing to do if you going to use auto cannon the pz2 will be a good tank for it.look at that insane 2 hit ko gun on the ms-1 2-3 hits on 1-2 tiers

Love mine. Even have a model kit sitting next to my monitor. It's what I started with and of course didn't last long for several battles. Once I got smart ( and upgraded ) things changed. Yesterday was my biggest day. Had five kills ( a record for me ) and managed a draw. We had 2 to 1 at the end after being outnumbered 2 against 5 earlier. Had the smoldering wrecks of a BT2 behind and M2 in front for cover. Both were knocked out at point blank range. Was the most exciting battle ever! Provided a lot of entertainment for some of my 'late' teammates who were rooting us on. The other kills were sniped from long range. I love the 45 mm for sniping. It hits hard at long range and is pretty accurate, and can be pretty devastating up close with HE in a pinch. This battle was at Malinovka and I can usually get 2-3 kills sniping across the open field. you definitely learn to use cover quickly with one of these, as they are a tin can and have the least hit point of anything, and occasionally almost need a push to get up a hill. Can be pretty nerve racking gettting up a grade to get to cover!

My friends and I enjoy taking our T1 tanks out for a drive on the nights we play. We play like half our games as T1. I am the only one of the three of us that uses the MS-1. I love it! That 45mm gun chews through LOLtraktors and other MS-1 tanks. I sit and snipe :Smile-hiding: and generally get a couple kills a battle. Last night I got 5 kills in one and we were outnumbered 2-1 at the end when I got three of the kills as they rushed us. :Smile-playing: The two of us left almost got us the win, but the guys they had left figured they had better team up and get rid of me and then take out the LOLtraktor that was left with me. ;)

yeah, have to agree I was able to enjoy MS-1 more than T-54 recently... until our ISP decided to reduce our net's quality, which make the game unplayable...

And at Tier2, the german premium Pz38 (don't remember the name) is just great, 45mm armor at tier2 is awesome, not to mention the high accuracy of the gun: 0.35 miss rate ! When I play city map like Himmelsdorf, I feel like a T-54 :)). Who cares about high tier tank when you can enjoy the game with these little guys ?
