CS-59 - The least bad Polish medium

Recommended Posts

Don't see a thread for this tank so why not create one? I kind of find it decent, it's not Leo PTA comfort but trying for the same position so that makes it bad by comparison. It feels like the least bad  Polish medium to me, with the possible exception of the derp-BUGI, which has hilarious alpha for a tier 6 med.

Have any of you researched the engine? The stock engine is 670 HP and 1.900 kg. The upgraded one is 700 hp and 2.100 kg. Seems to me there is no real need to spend 50.300 xp on that thing. Should I?

I will absolutely not spend 9.200 xp on the upgraded radio. Going from 710 meters to 730 at tier 9 is absolutely, utterly pointless. And you get the radio for free when you unlock the tier 10 so double the reason not to spend XP on that module.

I would have said the 5 6 and 7 were all less bad, but at least it's better than the 8.

Faster traverse. The radio might be pointless but so is the tier X.

It's clearly worse than the PTA, but does it at least compare well to the Patton/Type 61? I've seen people bring this thing into 430 positions and use the small size + DPM to cut through things. Is that a legit strat?

Small size? It feels enormous. Not too high, but pretty much every hit pens so you feel big and fat. I don't think it can work in positions the 430 can rock, since it has a squishy turret. It's been so long since I played the Pat and 61 so I can't really judge it in comparison with those.

So engine is a yes? Or suffer through without it since it's not really a keeper?

I don't have it but in general the better engine is the way to go even if the numbers imply it's meh. Those things have hidden values such as gearing, torque and throttle response it seems, which can make a huge difference where the p/w ratio gain seems minimal of even non-existent.

Meh, I ended up getting the engine. I don't really notice a huge difference, but it seems to feel a little more agile. Could be a placebo effect I suppose.
