It's still balanced by ho-hum mobility and the sides are paper.   However, with that in mind, if you be the claymore (front towards enemy) it's an incredible bounce house.   Tier 9 TDs are a threat, tier 8 and 9 heavies aren't instapen unless spamming heat. 

 

It's strong.   Going for the bounce 3x your HP missions in it because it's that damn bouncy now*

 

*if you position correctly

After a long break, I am finding I am awful now. I need a simple to use, point at enemy tank. Sounds like the Mutant might be good. I love bouncy tanks. I looked up the vbaddict stats... depending on how accurate of course, shows the Mutant the #1 bouncy tank at T8....

You might be better off in a Defender, Lowe, or AMX M4 Mle 49

mutant was always bouncy if ya faced the enemy tanks, the issue was they just shoot your cupola or flank ya.

Lowe does not bounce much, only if in a hull down. It is one of my most played tanks. Any tank can be flanked too, not like the Mutant is alone there.

as Tsavo said, only if they can get to the sides:

and thats the "weakest" spot frontally except the tiny hat.

most tier 9 lights have Very bad pen, 210 is the avg. ap pen and 250 is the Top Prem pen for all T9 lights

It is both forgiving and totally merciless when mistakes are made.

You can play it like a complete muppet and charge things. If you are facing them your armor will bounce all but the most ridiculous pen/HE. Anyone can play it well if you have the front and turret facing the shots.

However if you turn it even slightly to the sides you go from Doom Turtle armor to AMX CDC level armor. Everything will overmatch and just fly through the armor. Even the guys playing the tier 6 lights will be in awe at how ridiculously easily they are penning you.

I find it a lot of fun because I'm a grinder in the heavys looking to win over time whittling away HP and if that takes 10 HE shots at a side scraping IS-3A then I'll take those shots while he keeps bouncing off the front. I will eventually win. Unless he starts loading heat or gold he can't win.
