Optics and camouflage is your friend.
I think his main complaint is the bad cannon, Kankou. It's a bit silly (IMHO) that WG does not allow the Long-88 (from Nashorn) as the Stock Gun for the Sturer. It's a bit cruel to make some drop Massively from having 203-pen on the long-88, to ....169 pen on the 105 ? lol - at Tier-7...facing up to Tier-9's...with that...oof...not good.
At Tier-7 (only), that pen is workable...but keep in mind, it's the gun on the Dicker Max...and that's a Tier-6 TD....here we have a Tier-7...that can be getting into Tier-9 matches...and you are rollin' with a 169-pen gun ? As a TD ? lol !!!!
And, as General Tiberius pointed out in several threads on this, in the 8.9 Test Server sub-forum, WG was particularly cruel since they made you have get 4000+ exp for the tracks...FIRST...and THEN grind out a further 60,000+ EXP to get the 12.8 gun, at which point Sturer can finally be "judged in its elite / final form".
It is a ridiculously long / cruel path to make people suffer on. At the end, you are finally rewarded with 15-shells only, terrible speed and maneuver, and exceptional gun depression. But that's about the package deal. That's all you really get.
