The 14cm is more viable if you know how to aim, and less cancerous.

i disagree. its a terrible gun and the pen is stupid for its tier and placement. also the reload, etc, make losing shots simply not worth ever risking that trash.

The accuracy really isn't that great. Even watching that pro he misses a lot of shots for no dmg vs guaranteed dmg hitting the hull or turret. 

if you watch the video I posted, Amway was doing it pretty consistently. granted it was at "hit em with my sword" range and he was using a press account

Neither gun is good enough for a tier IX, let alone a tier X Heavy tank, but the 14 cm gun is a mediocre derp gun and the AP round is effective against a wide array of targets.

I feel like I'm the only one that thinks the 14cm is the better gun to use on this tank.  I'm not willing to go full prem HE spam though.  I get MUCH more consistent damage playing the 14cm than I do in games running the 15 cm.  And honestly the Type 4 HT has a place in my garage for good.  You can really bully tier 9 matches and be effective in tier 10s with the improved armor.  Yes Firey/Prok with arty just plain sucks [edited]...but most maps aren't like that.

 

Too many maus, e100, kranvagn, e3, e4, type 5, etc.  Your better dpm gun is a lot less reliable especially at the extreme ranges where you can pop heavy armor with the derp and take no return fire.  It's  ID-10T proof.

You do like everyone else does.

 

You unlock the 15cm Derp, load full gold HE and just drive forwards, blasting everyone in the face and laughing as they bounce on your armor :P


Just be careful because if the enemy gets to your side you're done.

Type 4 isn't a type 5.  Frontally it isn't all that tough to crack with tier 9 and 10 guns.

press W, bounce 12000 damage, complain about it having no armor and prem ammo ruining your day

 

that's how you play the 2nd most broken tank in the game (type 5 being the 1st most broken)
