Tiers 2 and 3 have ridiculously bad view range. Armor is tissue paper and the guns can't hit anything at range. Tier 4 is the same until you get the top gun but all three require spotting to be effective and all 3 are 2 shot to most same tier and one shot to many tier +1 vehicles. Tier 5 finally has decent view range and guns but is too slow for a vehicle that has the same armor (none for all practical purposes) as the tier 2.  I have not yet earned the tier 6. and gun depression also sucks except for tier 5.

Chinese TD's are bad in every possible way. I was really looking forward to this line, even though it is 99% fictional, but I'm disappointed. 

 

Mobility isn't that good, guns are mediocre, accuracy is pain in the neck and the worst thing is - module XP cost is way too high!

Makes grinding of those lame tanks even more painful. Have to point out I had 4 perk crew (from Type 64) in each tank so far and it's not helping my tanks perform any better. Those TD's are just crippled compared to their counterparts on other lines. 

 

On a bright note, I had a little bit of fun driving tier 6 TD, but that's it. Nothing special...

I got up to fully researching the T8 TD, and I find it to be quite underperforming. For a supposed assault tank destroyer that can "Spear head a charge" I don't see this tank spearheading anything. The upper front plate is made of swiss cheese never mind the lower plate. T6 tanks can penetrate it. I am really struggling to find out where this tank has any strengths it's slow, has bad armor, and abysmal health point pool. In tier ten games I tend to get one shot, mostly two shot even in tier 8 games.

 

I really don't understand the purpose of this TD in it's current state, if chinese TD's are all about "raw power" this is definitely not it. Maybe when I get to the T9 this tech tree might start showing that it can actually do something other than being an exp pinata. In this tank I have a 38% win rate. This tank is turning me into a tomato, geeze.

 

All the tanks from T1-T7 were just hurdle to overcome, I didn't find any of them interesting enough to keep in my garage permanently. These are some pretty lousy designs, which is saying something. Overall very disappointed with this tree so far.

I used Gold and Free XP to skip to tier IV. But I noticed that the Tier IV Chinese TD is overpowered in a few areas.

 

The Accuracy beyond 300 meters is really good and for tier IV I think that needs to be dialed down.

The Camo Rating is also a bit high. I was able to remain invisible with only a camo net and tear apart a T14 who was less than 100m away.

Also I believe a 45KPH top end speed is a bit much for a turretless tank destroyer.

 

Just my thoughts, take them with a cup of salt.

 

Just got a Top Gun in the Tier IV and it was only good for a 3rd Class Mastery Badge

Just got the T9, and it easily gets out maneuvered in close quarters combat, I will probably stop playing this line at this point as I don't find it much fun. I may get the premium because unlike the tanks in this tech tree it might have enough mobility to be worthwhile.

I love TD's that have mobility AND a turret. This line does not get useful until tier 4 IMO. Pen is way better albeit armor is not so good but with any tank that is quick and agile the armor sucks. As with most TD's you must stay back but this one can move and is agile enough to relocate quickly. I have sixth sense only right now so I cant wait to get 3-4 perks!! Tier 1-3 SUCKS POND WATER!!!! JS.

I would REALLY like a premi Chinese TD please. Make it useful and a money maker if possible, not like the Russian 122, it sucks LOL.

SO far I am up to the T7, but the Velocity of the shells is just horrible, its nearly like shooting ARTY, I would like to see a velocity BUFF on the AP/HEAT rounds.

- Ridiculously bad view range - They are TDs for goodness sake.

- No armor what so ever - got one shoted by an arti, M4 and a few others but can't remember now

 

At tier 5 now and top gun is just okay. Hoping for better on the upper ones.

Copy and paste of Russian TDs except for the premium which is an up-everythinged SU-122-44 which I happen to already have. 

Mind you, it looks powerful enough for me to want to play it despite my already having its younger cousin in my garage. 

What do I think of the Chinese TD line? I don't know yet. They're fantasy-league from tracks to periscope, but the premium looks interesting.

I'm up to tier 6 but seems they all have decent guns but horrible armor (NO ARMOR) doesn't take much to knock them out.

After playing the Tier 9 for awhile, I found that I tend to trail behind the push and get to the battle after it's finished. I can't really keep up with the team in most situations. If it wasn't so slow it might be a much more fun tank to play. I don't know what the T10 is like but if it's similar I really don't see a reason to grind it out.
