RoF is expected and totally acceptable. What this vehicle needs is a code inspection to elimiate its no penetration and no dmg hit bugs.

Gun accuracy needs to be better, give it the correct gun, not a russian derp thing.  0 dam pens or any of that should not be the issue it is, not because you only notice it due to the long reload, but because the size of the shell should not have the same chance of bouncing a side hull shot on a t-50-2 as on the turret of a t-59.

Same for bouncing HE as much as it does, it's just too inconsistent.

Camo and view range should be more proportionally correct in my opinion, give me no camo but give me view range to compensate to allow for real sniping.  A lowe with BiA and binocs, you can get 5 or more gridsquares away semi-well placed shots, 4 squares consistently accurate.  JPE with the same and it's a gamble if you can get tanks in your immediate area, flinging massive shells into the air or straight to the ground, with slim chance for a second attempt.

JPE camo is better firing than moving, and that's fine, but give us a true successor of the JT's gun, hell I would rather the 128 on that than the thing it's got on there now.

If it's going to play at being arty, give it the view range of arty.

I would prefer the tank be a smidgen faster with turning. Give it another 1-2 degrees a second for turning and it'll help the tank a LOT more.

Looking over this thread has convinced me to stick with my JT rather than upgrade to the E100.

Lord knows it's bad enough with JT bounces: I once bounced twice off a Pz38Na with the top JT gun, and three times off a T-50-2, who wound up killing me. If I spent the creds for an E100 and still bounced, I'd probably rage quit. WG seems to hate letting german tanks be effective in general.

I was really excited when I got this tank initially, back when it was released. I sold it recently because it just doesn't perform as advertised. The most common sight you will see when you fire the gun on this tank is a tracked tank at the receiving end. Yes I know how to aim, and my crew and tank were hooked up properly - The round just has an odd tendency to not hit anything but tracks.

I'm mostly a pub player, and having one of these on your team is more or less a detriment if your team doesn't have a clue on how to support it (which is about 80-90% of the time). If you're lucky enough to get a city map, you can dominate but you will NOT get those most of the time. You end up getting wide open field maps with 4+ arty on each side, and only a Volkswagen beetle to hide behind.

If you must have a T10 TD, go for the Foch 155, 268, 263, or even the E4. The JT contributes more to a T10 battle than the JPE100...

I'm sad that I had to sell it, but it's too frustrating to play. I don't miss it.

I'm only pulling 2k average damage in my JpE  ..... Which is a little disaapointing.  I must agree though the most frustrating thing in this tank is its ability to track a tank..... The 2nd one would be the 0 damage pens ..... HOW DOES A 170 MM SHELL PEN AND DO NO DAMAGE?!?  But I mean the tank isn't that bad... Has a decent amount of armor that likes to bounce everything ....
