i am about to get it but i have not seen it in game for a long time let alone the WZ-120 that i have been using.  Still wondering if its still worth getting?  i do have the 140  but this tank looks pretty tough and seen a few good video's on it so for the last 20 days been grinding using the WZ-120, just the 2nd gun though. My patience was wearing thin on that tank but i will keep it.

the 430U is just a better 121, get that instead.

 

Rasha forever comrade

i do have the 430 and its a fun tank but i see better speed and i like a faster offensive tank of the 121.. I will look into 430U later though.

The 430U does everything that the 121 does, except better.

 

 

That being said, I'm a completionist so I'll probably have a 121 eventually. You also never know how buff/nerf cycles change things. One day a tank is garbage (old Caernarvon) and the next day it's bananas (new Caernarvon). It never hurts to diversify your garage.

No. It is slow, gun aims slow. Low pen. Easy to kill. Oh yea, and no gun depression.

Gun depression was/is the problem for me.  Performs well in parking lots.

I went ahead and got the 121 because I had an all female crew in the T59 & the other Tier 8 Russian premium.  I had gone down that line for lights (T64) and decided just to add the meds at the end in case they ever buff the 121.  I never play the 121 and that's an understatement.

It's a good tank

 

It's just not as good as the 430U.

121 is a good tank similar to the position E50M is in except that there are tanks that can do what it does but better. In this case the Obj430U; get the 121 for its looks only. Its very unlikely that WG will buff the 121 in half a year or in a year.

Low pen? If I am not wrong it has better pen the 430U. The pen is alright for the 121.

I played about 400 in the 121, it has good DPM upto 3300  even without food. I am not the best player in it, but when I get bored with other tanks I just go to 121 and it never fails me. High alpha + high ROF makes even lost games not so bad.

My friend, it's a good tank, get it if you can.

your right on the time line of the buff, just heard a few weeks ago of the "E 100" rebalance for this year!  maybe later on for 121, who knows with War Gaming.

I'm not terribly good in it but I like it better than most of the other tanks in my garage.

The 121 is basically a faster 113 with weaker armor, and no -7 depression over the side. It is a fun tank, being able to out maneuver heavy mediums and most heavy tanks in general for that 440 alpha. But with the introduction of the Chimera and the 430U, there is no essential use for the 121 other than pub fun. It's not a bad tank, it was just power crept to death like so many others.

At this point? No, theres no point. The 430U is better than it in every single aspect basically. I would say stay at tier 9 with the WZ120, where the gun is still unique (in terms of alpha but crap in every other stat). If you get the 121, its gonna be nearly the same as the WZ 120. Big alpha gun but everything else in the tank suffers compared to other tier 10 meds. I will say though, the reload on the 121 and its high alpha can get really nasty.
