I have ACE in the Jumbo, but only like a 30% win rate in the damn thing.

 

I hate that damn thing, but I still have to grind to the T20.

With the stock turret, I just love the Jumbo, combined mantlet and turret front can bounce tier 8 guns. I just need to learn how to keep my hull armor out of harm's way, considering everyone seems to know how to aim for my upper glacis when I'm out in the open.

EDIT: Haven't tried it with the "top" turret yet, I'm nervous about how it will affect my playstyle...

I always use it with the top turret. The M1A1 and 105 just dont seem to have the firepower to deal with other tanks, besides both the turrets have very strong mantlets

Jumbo is my favorite Sherman I've used so far.  Since I've only used the M4 and Jumbo I can't say about the E8.   Personally it's a perfect support vehicle, with enough capability to face down tier 6 heavy tanks and win if used right.  I faced down two tier 5 and one tier 6 heavy once in it and absolutely ate them alive.  It's that wonderful armor it has.  If you use the derp... you can just troll people to death.  Only thing that sucks is when people pull out premium around that do 200+ penetration, then it's armor is next to useless even when angling well....   

 

It's a great tank still, if it wasn't for it's bad view range, and slow speed I would absolutely roll in this thing just about all day long. LOL

 

The Derp is the way to go with this thing though.  It's HE rounds don't require penetration, heck don't require brains... I often just aim for forward road wheel and keep it tracked while they're stuck barely around a corner, it deals damage to their HP and tracks each shot crippling them leaving them helpless as you just spam them to death.  Great way to even deal with tier 7 heavies it works.. jumbo gets 70 rounds which is plenty to waste on such an affair.  LOL
