God damn this forum is dead how does this topic not exist yet? Also I'm making this topic from my phone because work filters, so sue me for not typing out all the stats. Here's the TanksGG page. Anyways, basic overview. Skoda T 27 - the premium (and thus worlds better than tech tree) tier 8 Czechoslovakian medium tank. 3 round clip, 240 alpha with 1.8s intraclip and 23.01s clip reload with 100% crew. Rounds are AP 202pen standard, APCR 242 pen gold, who cares what the HE is. Mobility feels about the same as the tier 9 - same top speed but i cba looking up terrain resistances. Armor is obviously mostly a non-factor, but being tier 8 means you can meme bounce autoaiming idiots and low tiers who shoot your turret face more often. My thoughts: I've played something like 15 games in it so far while doing the Czech holidays event on NA. Winrate's not great (54% last i checked) because like all autoloaders it's super easy to get into trouble overextending and i have some bad habits. Gun feels as derpy if not more so than the T50, I like to joke that one shot out of every three in the T50 will miss or bounce and that seems to be true for this gun as well. I miss the shell velocity from APCR default as well and that's fucking with my DPG a bit until I get used to it. 202 AP is just this side of workable but I've definitely run full gold in matches before for both shell velocity and pen reasons. Also, the ammorack is a little fragile - had it damaged twice in three shots from a Pantera in one match yesterday. Haven't had a full detonation yet but it's a matter of time and getting shot too much. No fires yet despite running food, and I didn't notice any other significant rates of module or crew wreckage. Overall, it feels like a downtiered T50 with a bit less HP and the AP default gun. Miles better than the TVP VTU of course, and it really should be the tech tree option if they're not gonna give the VTU an autoloader to match up with the T9/10, but $$$ I guess, most new premiums are this way in the current year. I definitely like it, as will anyone else who enjoy the tech tree 9 and 10 Skodas. My current setup: Medkit/Repkit/Food, Vstab/Vents/Optics. I went with Vents because I had em lying around and they put me at 470 viewrange with my crew, but given the general derpiness of the gun I did consider a GLD. I carry half AP half APCR (which I believe is 27 of each). Crew skills (my T50 crew) are: Commander (girl): Sixth/BiA/Sit. Aware/Repairs/Camo, might dump Repairs for Recon and retrain it again Gunner: BiA/Snap/Repairs/Camo Driver: BiA/ORD/Repairs (which maybe i should change to smooth ride, but... Firing on the move in this thing is eh)/Camo Loader: BiA/Safe/Repairs/Camo Food, vents, and BiA push the clip reload down to 21ish seconds I think. Maybe 22. Thoughts? It seems actually fairly well-balanced to me.
