Horrible tank. I dont know what the devs or the testers were thinking. If u havent played the t1 heavy then look no further. It has raised its ugly head this time as a german tank that is 3 tiers higher and is now t8. Bad armor, Huge target, Okish gun. This tank should have been left on the drawing board. Great speed for a heavy but u are a gigantic target that nothing will be missing.

Have you maxed it out?

I do well in most of my tanks thats why i can tell u exactly how its performing for me. Got 11 kills 1 match in my t1 heavy but that still doesnt make it a good tank.

Yeah it is weird how unused this tank has been so far. I mean I was seeing E-75 and E-100 all over the place at the start of 6.6. I have only seen two of these tanks so far, it seems strong enough stats wise but it looks like people were racing to the higher tanks.

I'm personally pushing for one in the future but not in the short term. Too many others on my list.

Well, I had mine in tests 2 and 3 and it's one of the best heavies I have ever driven.

I've seen one finally in-game. The user called it 'fun'. It survived with one kill.

Haven't seen one yet.

And being totally honest, looking at it on paper, I'm glad I already have my 4502 B.

I have one.  It is indeed fun, though, I don't get to play it as much as I would like.  Soon though!

Well, it is a tier 8, nothing to do with tier 9.

I have seen only one thus far, and I am grinding away again to hopefully get one in the comming month or so. Not quite sure what to expect when I get it since there is very little feedback from either drivers of the tank, or those who have encountered it.

I have one, its basicly a light/heavy tank, very fast and agile, but you can't get into a head to head slugging match with equal tiers, you need to use its manuverabilty like a medium to out run the enemies gun.

I prefer the 88 L70 on it, the 105 lacks the penetration and has a slower reload.

Ive just started grinding exp towards the 4502 Ausf A, ive got a good month until i have it, at the least. (Im working on other tanks now that i finally have the Tiger (P) fully upgraded).

And no, i have yet to see one.

I saw one in a game the other day but it died to artillery fire before I could engage it.

So does that make it a more durable Sniper like a Tiger H?

Any tank with the long 88 is a decent sniper, its better at peek-a-boo fighting. (pop out from behind cover, fire, and scoot back to cover)

Saw my first two today. In different matches though. I managed to engage one with my IS-3 in the first match. The thing had some bite and moved well - I nearly destroyed him and still had most of my health though. I'm not sure how much of that I can attribute to positioning and differences in skill, though. I looked the driver up and he averaged into the 700's with it. Not too bad at all for a tier 8.

I asked him and he also seemed to like it. The more I hear about it and see it, the more I wish I had one. I'd love to start grinding on one - I just have too many other lines that I really need to work on to start another though. Especially an additional German heavy line! (Mind you, I have a 4502B already anyways.)


Edit: On a similar note, that's exactly why we've seen so few. It sits a tier 8 in the middle of new machines and along a line which many people have already reached the end of anyway. The only way to have one already is to grind like a fiend, which some clearly have (the guy I mention dueling with in my IS-3 already had 220(!) battles on it), and spending gold/free xp to get it right away.

On the other hand, the E-75 was easily obtained by simply having some xp waiting on the KT. The E-100 is a new Tier 10, and we all know that tier 10 tanks are highly desired for clan wars, so people are MUCH more likely to spend the gold/free xp to get to them quickly.

Well, you can think of it like that. Its a good tank to snipe in. It depends on what your facing. Personally for me, I use the tank as a sniper. There are some battles where i'm the top tank and the enemy top tanks are tier 8 meds, then i would go up front.

I think you missed my point, not that it matters, since it's such a minor statement. I meant that I was glad I already have my B, because it means I never have to touch the A.

Cool thanks, always good to get an idea what I am getting myself into.
