Well I've manage to get through A-43 and now on the A-44 already mounted what was already available particularly the 76 mm S-54 just need to get the tracks so can mount the turret and top gun. So far I got my first victory in it although I still to practice more to be more efficient with the rear mounted turret in shooting around corners and not over expose myself.

Here's another vote for the T-34-85M, excellent tank.   Rudy is OK but has less DPM and frontal armor than the T-34-85M.  I'm thinking abt the T-54 mod 1 myself for a trainer.

 

Also I had good results with the A-44, it isn't a bad tank to learn rear turret play style in, which is significantly different from central turret play style.  You do a lot more side scrapping and never drive front first out from behind cover to trade shots.  Any of the front engine tanks are very prone to engine damage/fires and need to have a few crew with firefighting skills or an automatic fire extinguisher.

The A-44 was a horrible tank. It makes my top5 worst grinds. The A-43 in the right hands is absolutely amazing, especially using the little gun since you can get the trload down to 1.9 seconds. 

 

For the OBJ416, it is definitely not for beginners. Not only does it have no gun depression and very low hp, the turret is not 360 degrees. So if you want to circle heavies, it takes a little effort. Also learn the distances you will be fighting. The 416 can long range snipe and extremely close range brawl. anything in between these ranges is very bad for you.

A-44 plays well in tactical minded hands it does not play well in the hands of someone who doesn't know tactics. It requires facing forward and taking on mediums primarily from the side. The front of tanks won't be pennable unless you use prem ammo. Focus on sticking as a support to heavies and blasting a heavy turned away from you. Use your speed to reach positions to hit at mid range. Note object 416 is getting the boot on a future update.

This would be a shame, as the 416 has arguably the best gun in T-VIII Mediums.

Trust WG to f*ck things up when there are no issues and leave things at the status quo when there are.


 

Leave my 416 alone! :angry:

The real question is how are the Russkies reacting to the news of the 416's removal. If they're just as pissed as we are, then there's a fair chance that it'll be moved elsewhere on the tree, treated as a reward tank, converted to a premium, or best of all the entire line change proposal might be abandoned for being a counterproductive waste of time.

So 416 is being promoted to special status? Geez Why are tanks I want getting axed from their tech trees all the sudden (fv201B) I would think there not that OP they don't have good armor, okay gun stats and generally there are better tanks more suited for the role of sniping support but at least I already researched it and need to purchase it which shouldn't take as long.

With the upcoming removal of the 416 is there any chance it will remain with player as a 'legacy' tank. This happens with the likes of the Death Star but is it likely at tier 8. I had the holiday planned out as the 416 grind. ID it worth it now?

If its already in your garage I would figure it would get special status like the others would just because its not tier ten doesn't mean it cant get "legendary" status if its being removed from the tech tree besides weren't there other tanks that were removed had similar treatment?
