    T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

    2 T49s and a 5.5in. HESH shooting Conway is also loads of fun. And it's all glorious holy he(sh)

    New US Prem tank destroyer the TS5

    Rear armor is 50mm, so at least anyone who buys this can expect a 152mm HE shell up the booty

    If this is about the universal "special ammo" nerf, then the Defender is basically getting an HP buff because now premium rounds that do penetrate the ridiculous armor will be doing less damage.

    LT-432

    I was running vstab/optics/rammer for my first 10 or so games, then switched vstab for vents. The extra view range is really needed for piercing camo, even with a max crew. It also has identical handling to the M48 Patton, so not so great that a vstab is unnecessary/unhelpful, but not so bad that you absolutely have to have one. Run food for the extra camo/view range, though pay attention when your fuel tanks get hit, it happens quite often in this tank. My ammo loadout is 24/24/3, I could probably run less ap, but a few games it's been useful for carrying. They also have decent shell velocity at 1k m/s. The HE shells have really excellent alpha at 300, so worth having a few of those. The tank is big, but very low profile which is very nice. Combined with troll Russian armor, you get some weird lucky bounces. I've bounced tier 10 TD prem rounds on multiple occasions. It's quite mobile, with 70 kph as the top speed and an excellent hp/t at 33. It doesn't turn great, but I don't often find myself wishing I was a bit nimbler like I do in the M41 GF. The tank isn't super great at vision to do the lack of view range, but has enough camo to allow it to do the job just fine. The gun is good, especially combined with the low silhouette, and a random 7 degrees of gun depression.

    SU-130PM Soviet Tank Destroyer

    I'm excited. Any tank that's an auto-pen with my T49 makes me happy.

  13. JoAT was mostly used for tanks that burned a lot so one could drop the first aid kit for food and leave the fire extinguisher. With arty stun however, it's not good to drop first aid kit anymore, especially now that you can use them multiple times in battle like you mentioned. JoAT would only be useful if you were running a small first aid kit and lost more than one crew member, or if you lost a crew member right after using your kit. Either way, it'll only be useful for 90 sec or less. The only skill on the commander that I wouldn't train before JoAT is Mentor.

    I don't think they're planning on coming back anytime soon. And no, they're not active here anymore because it's hard to make sure you're information is still 100 percent applicable when you're out of the meta. For 3-marking and playing the tank in general, I suggest focusing on making good trades, gathering as much information from your minimap as possible and use that information to do the best possible thing at the right place and time. I remember telling Crab my feeling that he plays the game more on that bottom-right corner than he does the rest of the screen. Lastly, improve your survival ratio. You can't do anything when you're dead! I don't know what yours is, but work to be the last one alive each game and you should have around a 50 percent survival ratio.
