Is it just me or did the 9.22 engine buff to the T-54 mod 1 make it the best all-round premium tier VIII tank?  I'm finding the speed boost makes the tank much better at fighting in tier x than before.  I'm getting better assist damage, overall damage and the brawling is better as well.  Any medium or light below tier VIII just gets completely outmanoeuvred brawling this tank now.

Lorraine 40t still exists.

yes it does, but I've found it is always a support tank, not all-around and versatile, it's much better as a credit maker than the t-54 p with the great standard ammo that it has, but when top tier as the Lorraine, it doesn't play much different than at tier IX/X, paper armor is paper armor at any tier.  The 1 out of 20 games you are top tier in the t-54 p, it is a beast.  Don't get me wrong, the Lorraine is great, I just think this tank is now better all-around, regardless of the matchup.  T-54 soft stats are better than the Lorraine, Lorraine has the top speed advantage but agility goes to the t-54 p.

I loved it before the 9.22 Buff, haven't tried it yet.

I would include the Löwe to that. Those are two generally very good go-to Tier 8 premiums for credit and XP earning. I can’t include the Lorraine 40t because I just don’t make a decent profit in it, but that’s just me.

Credit making in the T-54 p has been hit and miss for me, some games I make great credits, other games I have to fight tanks that encourage me to dab the 2 key often and I just don't make much.  In general, you can always be competitive in this tank now and it makes good XP for crew training.


 

I've though about trading my IS-6 in for the Lowe rather than the 112, just for the credit making potential and as a bonus being a Maus crew trainer.

good news. I bought this a few days ago using gold I still have from the boxes. I haven't played it yet, though.

​Theres now no need to fire much gold with the boost in pen to 190, I remember when it use to be 173 (Think that was it) before the buff to 190. I fired all gold then, made very little but didn't loss any either. 2 marked it, put it in the garage and forgot about it after putting 700 battles in it. Took it out this week, with AP, and the things a beast, I just aim a bit and pen nearly everything. Killed an E75, IS7, and M103, all in one match, using nothing but AP. Its a great credit earner. Prob make 50k average

just tried it in a game, very nimble. Victory,  2 kills and 71k credits...not too shabby.
