Howdy Tankers,

 

After watching some review videos:

 

QuickyBaby: https://youtu.be/gTV3z7r8d8U

Circon: https://youtu.be/ZDnwQL6crNw

 

And seeing that some of our NA Forum Folks really like it, I went ahead and Free XP'd my way to fully stocked glory with this thing.  Another factor that I didn't mention is that I had the Tier VIII Premium Heavy already and wanted to put its crew in a Tech Tree tank.

 

After playing a few battles in it, I just don't find that the 53TP Mark is worth playing over ANY of my other Tier 8 heavy tanks.  However, I'm fully prepared to admit that, "It's me and not you" in this situation. So I'd like to get some feedback from those of you who've played this sucker and perhaps can give me more insight.

 

Thank you for your time and attention.

I just got this tank myself, only fought 1 battle in it. The battle was Tier X MM so I don’t really have an opinion at this point. These days playing a Tier VIII heavy with the 3/5/7 MM can be rough to say the least. I think I will wait and play it when Frontline comes back to the NA server.

The problem is if its stock even in a teir 8 you get screwed.

I play mine as a medium. Even with the top gun I find it does well in the medium role. It can bounce shots off that turret just about as good as the T29. And it has really good gun depression with the turret more forward on the chassis.

I loved the hell out of my 53TP. Imho one of the best tanks in the line. For all intents and purposes, it's an IS-3 with better gun depression and no pike on the front.

You both have motivated me to stick with it until I make a decision.  I agree with MountainLion though that the true test for me will be when Frontlines returns.

 

Thanks fellas!

Playing it like a medium seems to be working out, but I don't like this tank very much.

Try strongholds until you are more familiar with it.

 

lf you wish to travel with medium tanks, the stock gun has far stronger DPM. Also increases the HP/T. A gold ammunition penetration of 225 is low, but its enough for most you would want to penetrate as an acting medium tank, and considering it is quite accurate as a gun for a heavy tank. The armour is compared to lS3, but it is sure better than tier 8 medium tanks.

is3 with better gun, no. Its not even as good as its premium counterpart. Better on paper but the armor is just unreliable.

Its a great tank to play. I enjoy mine and I say a great tank to keep for playing pubs and tier 8 strongholds

This really does sum up the tank in a nutshell

I've been playing mine in Strongholds, and it frickin owns.

The top gun in this thing is pure EVIL. the simple fact I can pen a Defender with AP in the front tells you something.

"Oh hello Mr. Defender! BLAP! Take 400! LOL!"
