This tank is questionable at best most the time. Unfavorable Match Maker. In the past 10 game in it 8 been vs tier 10 all that can pierce it armor like candy now.
and it armor was already questionable. It's side are already paper thin it 191 armor is a small mallet on a massive turret. With all the new fasts tank that have come
it have unbalance the the tank. Now need special MM at least not seeing tier 10. Doesn't have the armor or really the gun for the job.

Agree totally with this observation!

They have agreed the hull is incorrect and will be changed with the HD model. also they said they would look at the size issue.

Why was the M6 put in the main tech-tree? It never got out of the proving grounds and is was not due to the war ending. It was due to they figured out it was a horrible tank. Which it is in game. It would be fine if it was a tank you bought, not one that is in the tech-tree.  Like I said it never got off the proving grounds. The M6A2E1 was actually the T1E1 which was the electric transmission equipped version. This is a horrible tank in battle, underpowered, under gunned, and was built to deal with smaller tanks by design. If you gave us the ability to make the M6 into the M6A2E1 with the thicker armor and upgrades then we would be almost equal to the T-29 Pershing. This Tank was never a real tank in combat. On 14 December 1944 the M6 was declared obsolete. Only forty units were produced and they never left US soil. In performance my T1 which is 1st line of this tank, outperforms the M6. I say remove it from the tech-tree and make it a special tank that can be bought on the side, so if anyone wants it they can have it. It just never played a role in combat and was only R&D.  Just my opinion, but one that history and facts will back up.

This is wargaming, facts and history are irrelevant. 

 

 

 

In game against other tier 8/9 tanks it does great. Just not when it's at the bottom of a game full of tier 10's.

Took mine out for a single battle, generally leave it to the side, same gun as the T-29 with a slower reload and seeing tier 10 means it is not so attractive in my line up :) Anyhow this was a tier 9 match and it did really solid, bounced a few E75s guess they where not happy :)

Just say this beast in a match for the first time. Thought it was a KV-2 at first with it being so tall. Needless to say my IS got smoked on the Himmelsderf hill.

I really wish they would put it up for sale at least once. I would pay out the butt for it. I am trying to collect all the American tanks.

Anyone else spot this little bit of news in 9.3 SP patch notes?  "- Characteristics of the following vehicles improved: Object 430, M6A2E1, Т92 SPG."

 

I hope this is going to be the preferred MM it so desperately needs, but if they decide to buff it and keep it in tier ten battles :( ..... well at least i will play it more so i'm happy about this new.

Current owners of this tank:  What are you thoughts on this news?

Posted this a number of months back. Some of what is in that thread will eventually be put in, much of it won't be. But it can give you an idea of what to expect with the HD model etc.

I am pleased but I do not know what will be improved so I have no idea what to be excited about.

I hope there are more changes with the armor profile it currently has, the new tier 8 lights will absolutely shrek this tank

I hope so Shapeshifter also I hope it gets a buff on rotating. After watching the streams on the test server today, getting flanked by a tier 8 light tank with the current side armor profile will mean instant death.

 

If the the t49 penn's your sides with HE from the 152 he will kill you in 2 shots.
