With the new campaign out I started playing tanks I haven't played in a while and dang this STB sucks.

 

I found myself hull down still getting penned, and the worst part is it's gun. It's SO SO BAD. Can't hit anything with this crappy gun, fully aimed shots just fly off into the moon or into the dirt. Incredibly derpy and inaccurate. I have a better time aiming with the FV4005!!

 

This tank needs something for sure, to the gun the most cause that is just horrid how bad it plays.

If you think the STB is bad you should try the Leo1

I have both and don't do to bad with them.

But comparing them to the other nations at the same tier they most definitely could use a little love.

PS. Not to forget the E50M in this equation.

Wargaming mentioned the hydro pneumatic suspension in one article and that they would look into incorporating it on the STB-1.

But that was many moons ago and never was heard of again.

WG puts a lot of things on the backburner I mean look at the IS4 as that has been tossed around to be buffed or flat out replaced for almost 2 years now. Besides that you have WG buffing some tanks randomly when no one expects it just to make some easy money like the Maus or E5 which got overbuffed and stayed like that for a while.

 

Giving the STB-1 siege mode wouldn't be game breaking and it would solve the issue of that tank's gun handling while in siege mode.

I'm not sure what even giving the STB hydro suspension would even do for the tank. It already has decent gun depression angles and good mobility. It's the gun that is making it a hard tank to play. The turret armor is "meh" it's not terrible but it's fine, its this gun that is bad.

The STB needs some updates to its gun. The OBJ 430U has more alpha, but less dpm, and a little worse accuracy. But I find myself being way more accurate in the 430u than the STB, due to the bloom of moving/turret traverse. The STB takes freaking forever to aim, even with a maxed out crew & food. Couple that with the terrible turret armor (better than the leo1) and it makes an anemic tank all together. The only upside to that tank is the DPM it has

Main problem I find with the armor is the mantlet is still glass kind of like the T22sr.

 

EDIT: Was gonna link the Tanks.gg page for the tank models of the STB and T22 but the site is down

Siege mode = better aimtime and abiity to work areas that other meds are unable to use?

 

Basically gives the tank more versatility and I'm sure the Russian devs would love to make the Leo1 even more irrelevant lol.
