Nice to have an OP American TD for a change. I mean the T28, T28 Prot, T30 and T95 are just marshmallows. I guess Russian bias doesn't exist after all!.

After all these years, can somebody please explain to me how you can have Russian bias on Soviet tanks in a video game developed by a Belarusian company? What is my stupid self not understanding?

It pushes across open ground and nothing stops it. It defends a position by sitting out in the open totally exposed, bouncing shot after shot. Aim time and DPM are significantly better than its tier 8 counterparts.

I would say OP!

The RU server accounts for a huge majority of the WoT playerbase as a whole. Therefore, if WG wanted to appeal to it's largest demographic, they may have those tanks more OP than others as the theory goes....

 

 

As for the TS-5, it's pretty awful. It's not OP at all. l don't think it's bad by any means but it certainly isn't better than the T28 or the Proto imo.

While i agree the reload is too fast. The armor isn't that much different to the T28

Exactly - It's like they prefer to identify with the Americans!.

Apparently no ones groped your lower plate yet.... but they will. Unless you're exceptionally good at hiding it. Which means they'll soon fondle your cupolas. It's pretty good, but it ain't OP.

You have 124 battles.  Lots still to learn.  Definitely not OP.  Balanced at best.

Guessing that OP is using an alt account as the one posting isn't past tier 3.

I don't if its overpowered, I'm curious if its better than the T28.   It seems more mobile but with the same armor, and the gun has a very quick reload.

That's the only way to kill them!

You will find that you can even kill a E100 in your Scorpion by circling it and kicking it's butt.

With the lowly Skorpion G, I have been able to apparently ammo rack several of them straight through the front with standard AP rounds.  No, it's not OP but it is very good and I wanted one but things just didn't work out to get it.  Glad I bought the Skorpion G instead.

The TS-5 has a better DPM and can go faster. T28 has better armor coverage (the lower plate is a big target on the TS-5) and can snipe better. Minor differences but none making the TS-5 OP.

TS-5 is a decent premium TD but it's not OP.  Good rate of fire, decent alpha, some armor, makes it very strong at it's tier but other tier 8 tds are good too.
