This tank is absolutely horrible, and I avoided playing it during the On Track figuring I'd just run it in Frontline. Not only is the pen extremely low, the mobility bad, no armor, and it also throws shells everywhere but where you're aiming. Honestly what is this thing for other tan wasting free exp. to get past it? And is the T54 this big of a heap?

 

Btw, it's fully upgraded with the exception of the tracks.

The T69 can be a powerful little tank in the right situation, not sure about in FL where most people are playing in Defenders and such, need to dab that 2 key a little more, look for flanks, and play the mid range game.

 

As for the T54E1.. Well.. it starts out with the same 90mm top gun you're using on the T69.. So that's a thing.. It gets pretty solid when you get the 105, but 43k xp is a long long grind for it.

 

It's all worth it for the T57 though, stick with it and I promise you'll be happy with the T57.

Frontline isn't really suited for it. It's a bit slow for a med and the bloom is big so you can't get shots off quick at range. It's better suited for a smaller map where you can poke out on a tank shooting at an ally and dump 4 shots in and then back off while on reload. The tier 9 and 10 are very similar in that regard. When they were introduced they were great at longer ranges. The t57 was easily one of the most OP tanks ever in the game because it was devastating at close range (and still is), but it had a fast aim time and fairly accurate gun so it was also capable of putting a clip into a tank at range quickly. Then when they nerfed HEAT they nerfed the bloom on them and the t69 hasn't been touched since afaik.

 

I bet it would be good on the defense side in the 2-3-4 cap area where you have somewhere you can actually hide during reloads. Stick to areas where you can surprise enemies or at least have somewhere to retreat to.

Sadly, there was a time where T69 was a strong medium tank.

lt had 600 Horsepower, it had 300mm pen HEAT ammo.

Along with T-34-3, 112, WZ111 also having 300 pen HEAT.

lt was found to be too strong, so they toned it down.

 

That was before the time, of tanks like Liberte, 252, super buffed 112. 

l think T69 needs a DPM increase, at least. And make the magazine hold 5.

At any rate, T-34-2, King Tiger, KV4, AT15 are all pretty lousy, more lousy than T69

The T54 is a lot better than the T69 when fully upgraded but a lot of that might be it doesn't see +2. Do yourself a favour and FXP the top gun though. Thing with it is I found I really relied on my team backing me up, that long long reload can really screw you. If you have a competent team that allows you to stay in cover and reload as well as take shots from flanks(it has crappy pen with AP) it can be quite devastating.

I agree, it's been power creeped big time. As was said before though, there was a time when it and the is3 were preferred for tank company battles.
