Playing the Type 61... Gun is absolutely potato accuracy-wise, and the tank is pretty slow for the amount of armor it has (zero). Ugh.

It'll stick with my Chi-Ri thank you.  Everything above tier 7 is absolute trash.  

 

The ST-A1 isn't even an ST-A1 (it's an ST-A3) and it still manages to be trash.  

The Type 61 looks correct but it's game play leaves something to be desired.  

The STB-1 lacks its hydro-pneumatic suspension and therefore falls under the category of "I'll play it when you fix it"

STB-1 is trash, you get high dpm but trade that for every hitting [edited], and your armor is paper and you only block anything if someone has bad rng.

 

Since WG wants us to grind this potato, then the buffs to it better be substancial. I don't want another 430U, but I also don't need it to be a centurion AX

I’ve been grinding the Type 61 for a while now and I actually like it the best of all of the Jap meds.  I rank in the top 100 for it (like 29 or something) so clearly it’s not played much by anyone.  It’s accurate for me and hits hard.  Just try not to get shot back. And that huge copula, uggg!

How to buff STB-1 line:

 

Keep armor as is across the line and increase gun firing rate to reach the following DPMs (without crew skills or any tank equipment/directives):

STA-1: 2500 --> reasoning: make it level with the Object 416, which has high DPM, good camo but poor gun depression. STA-1 will be high DPM, poor camo, but good gun depression, cost is that it'll have lower alpha, so it will need to expose itself to make use of this DPM.

 

Type 61: 2900 --> reasoning: make it level to the AMX 30, which has high DPM, but AMX 30 has slightly better turret armor. Also increase the Type 61's shell count from 32 to 55.

 

STB-1: 3200 --> reasoning: make it slightly superior to the russian T-62A and K-91, which both have good turret armor and sub 2 sec aim time. STB-1 has 2.21 s base aim and overall weaker turret, so make it more attractive for players to use this tank by making it more glass cannon. Hell, if WG wants, just strip off another 50 mm of frontal turret armor, add some more horse power and make it fire like a rail gun (3400 base DPM). I'm sure people will be intrigued by this.

 

In fact, what I would love to see is this:

1- Make the AMX 30B into a tank with decent camo, poor accuracy (0.35 disp) but no turret rotation dispersion.

--> 3300 DPM, 0.35 disp, 0.08 moving/tank traverse disp, 0.04 turret rotation disp.

2- Make the Leopard 1 into a tank with good camo, high accuracy, no armor but faster tank.

--> 3200 DPM, 0.29 disp, increase power to weight to 22 HP/ton.

3- Make the STB-1 into a tank with poor camo, poor accuracy, very high DPM.

--> 3400 DPM, 0.36 disp

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD....... WG, please stop giving out the Locust with EVERY on-track. Especially when there's usually a low tier tank from the same country available. Like the Japanese Te-Ke, which might be actually useful to someone going up the Japanese line. 

Yes, IK, don't complain about free stuff, but really just a little effort to make the reward fit the work would be nice.

 

Now that that's out of the way, looking forward to going thru the on-track with my Imperial tanks. Feel free to boop me.

STA-1 has no armor and is slow like a heavy tank, what's the logic of that? I'm almost given up to keep doing this line. 

STA-2, this premium need buffs. If you will not give armor at all to japanese medium tanks, give good guns.

The thing I like about the STB is I rarely have to use gold rounds in it and your turret can block some shots as along as it is not a gold round which is rare at tier 10....:(
