While admittedly I've only played 2 games in this SPG there's no question in my mind about it's general usefulness and ease of play.

 

I wasn't planning on following this SPG line as I'm playing others and Arty progression just takes time.

 

I bought the SPG and fully upgraded it with free experience, so there's that. I've got a brand new untrained crew.

 

The tank is modestly quick, is as big as a house, and can only fire about a round a minute as you've got to target things you can see and hit. The big gun is big though.

 

The American SPG line has a wider covered arc but this tank compared against the same level German tank feels very balanced.

 

EZ mode SPG

It is good but the narrow arc is annoying at times but other than that there isn't much to complain about other than getting bad teams that knee cap the win rate.

While such a big gun at this tier is a novelty (the only tier 8 that has a bigger gun is the GW TIger P), you'll eventually begin to appreciate the increase in reliability that comes with both the SU-14-2, and the 212A, it was definitely an arty line I have enjoyed thus far.

This thing made me enjoy playing arty, I'm currently at the 212A (And that's where I'll stay), it uses the same gun but it behaves a lot nicer than the S-51.

I haven't fully upgraded mine yet and am using the stock gun. Is there anyone who prefers the stock gun over the top gun for its rate of fire and accuracy?

I have both. One is good for missions, and the other is just for fun....

I been slowly grinding my way to the S-51 for a while now for some months in the KV-2. I am really bad at any sort of normal tanks in WOT, thus why I play primarily SPG's. Only thing I can manage to play somewhat decently. So yeah literally tooth and nail 200 to 300 xp per battle. I have a long road ahead of me. I know I will get it some day finally and so I am looking forward to playing the S-51.

I use the stock gun. The rate of fire with the top gun is frustrating.

So just played the S-51 on the common test platform of WOT. I really liked it. I played with it fully upgraded so I am not familiar with the the stock gun. I am excited to get mine researched one day. Being that most of my experience in WOT, over four accounts, is playing SPG’s, The reload time does not bother me. I have learned from my experience, that the stun is the rewarding part. Sometimes,  I hit a tank, but I always aim to miss. I find I am able to make more XP this way through stuns and assisted damage than kills and direct hits and penetrations. Once in while, as weird as it may seem, I am top of charts in DPS for the team I’m on. Once In a blue moon, I will be top of Damage done even if defeated. That is just weird, but sometimes its how it is.
