Ive been working on a few lines in the American tree and I've arrived at tier 9 and I'm trying to decide if the rest of the grind is worth it. I have a few concerns about the T57's lack of pen at tier 10, I look at the pen and just can't seen the tank being effective.

 

Please let me know about your experience with the T57 and the tier 9 tank before it and thanks in advance.

Haven't driven it, but 258/340 pen are the exact same values my ST-I have, and it works perfectly against tier 10 tanks, I don't think it will be an issue.

The pen is fine, the gun handling is the problem.  The t57 is one of those tanks that has crazy bloom on the move.

I barely load HEAT in the T57 and still average 3000 dpg playing like I'm drunk. Its fine.

It has the same pen as the E5 and nobody complains about the E5's gun.

I never had a problem with the E100 even before the gun was buffed, you can overmatch a lot of things with the 150mm shell if you know where to aim. Plus it snapshots surprisingly well.

Great! Good to hear. I'm not sure where I read my pen numbers but they weren't that strong. Glad I asked rather than just went off assumptions so thanks for helping me. I guess I'll keep moving forward on getting it then, I'll need to get through tier 9 so we will see what that's like.

 

thanks again guys

Its slow, has zero armor, garbage dispersion since it was nerfed into the ground. Its basically a really big paper medium. Oh, and its perpetually ammoracked like the E5.

The 57 is an amazing tank. I really enjoy it. Armor is inconsistent like stated. the bloom is awful on the move. However fully aimed and especially up close, the gun is amazing. really the only thing i can actually complain about with the tank is the reverse speed. It is just so painfully slow.

Its a very powerful tank, you just have to be aware of its drawbacks.

I'm surprised to see so many saying it's a non-issue considering it's known as the HEAT-57.

IF you have the credits to burn then yeah just like with the t-54 you will want to load majority heat due to the insane pen especially since its a clip and you can't easily switch out ammo types.
