Good morning fellows. As always, I have been derping about tanks since the latest update, but I'm noticing a distinct lack of the new German T6. I'm aware that anyone with any amount of gold/free XP got  the 30.02 before 8.5, but isn't it odd to not see at least ONE of a tank? (Excluding the ABCDEFGpanther) I haven't seen or even heard anything about the 30.01, and I'm curious as to if I should just rebuy my 3/4 and get one for myself. Anyone played the thing? And if so, what was it like?

I have the 30.01 D, its a decent tank, it feels just like a stock panther that traded some armor for speed.

I'm assuming that most people, myself included, have already researched well past the 30.01. I hopped into the line at the AwfulPanther, and really can't wait to research out of it.

Yes solo, I know how its spelled, it's called "a play on words" It IS a darn awful tank. I enjoy playing it, LOVE the squeeze gun (konisch) even with the 80 front it is still way to easy to kill in the tiers it runs in.

how do you know everyone used gold or free xp? i had the 3002 db since long before the Entwicklung tanks where in the game, and saved 100k xp on it to go up to the indien-pz since christmas (yes i know it wasnt that much, but at that time noone knew how much xp was needed, so i took the highest xp med and used that as the benchmark)

and from what ive heard the 3001(d) and 3002 both kinda well... sux. 3002 esp. compared to how it use to be.

I haven't tried it yet, looking at it, it looks like a pz4s premium tank only with sloped armor, faster, better turning and turning turret. I think I will personally like the tank when i finally get it.

Well, I've nearly gotten through the PzIII/IV (good thing I researched the VK 30.01(h) before the VK 36.01(h) or it would take me quite a bit longer), so I've still got time to choose which line to go up. Probably going for the Panther/E-50 line, but you never know...

It's meant to be a pretty decent tank. It has 10' of gun depression, along with decent armour, mobility and the L/70. I can't wait to re-buy my PzIII/IV and unlock it. I had the 3/4 fully kitted out with camo, emblems, inscriptions etc., as well as 100% crew and all 3 equipments, but I sold it before they announced that the new med line would be coming off of it, I really regret that.

I just don't see much of a reason to use the 3001 over the 3601. Better speed and lower profile, but that doesn't seem to make up for the poor armour and lack of the L/58. I'd just go with the 3601 for a German Tier 6 Medium.

outside the sloped armor, it really is not special. 3601 has better armor and guns, and the 3001 H has lots of speed.  It is only useful it seems if you don't have the 3002 yet and want to go down that line.

I have one, havn't unlocked the engines, but everything else is.

I like it, it's a solid T6 Medium.

Well, I guess that makes me the proud owner of a Limited Edition, then  :teethhappy:
Liking it so far, especially with the L/70. Whoever thought to give this thing a stock gun that sucked at Tier IV...needs to have their head checked. Or buff the L/48, whichever works.

Acceleration is meh until you get the second engine, which is 50kg lighter than the first.

All in all, a great tank. :great:
