I had a battle with 5 3601 in it yesterday. we sucked though. I had a 5 kill game in murkonova meeting engagement with the PzIV. If they get rid of the long 75 in the PzIV I'll just sell it because it's got no other saving graces. I make wayyyyy more coin inthe Stug3 and loving the SU26 yet too.

I break even in the M26 usually, but rarely survive the battle.

Boomer, don't "upgrade" to the M12. The M41 was better IMO. I'm really trying to get to the M40/43 but it makes so little XP that this will be a 20 year arty grind. The Priest still works pretty good for me, although I've noticed accuracy is falling off since 7.5 updates.

Current stable is E8/M26/M7 Priest/M12/PzIV/ VK3001p/VK3601h/Stug3/Churchill/SU26

If the S-51 reloaded a little faster, it would be a hell of a TD.....1 kill and 2 significant damages scored this....

Any particular sector on the map where you parked your S-51 on that map?

Playing Widepark from the south, I usually park in the south west corner with my SPG on that map, with higher arc SPGs, you can actually land decent shots on enemies in the north east of the map and cover the south east of the map where the majority of SPG players like to park.

Yeah, I was on the south side. I worked over to the SE corner, stopping right at the crossroads before you get to the park, to deal with the guys coming down the railroad tracks. You have to shoot between and over buildings, so it doesn't work for every arty.

SE corner, is that K8 sector? and you aim for enemies coming across D & E line, in mid map?

On the line between K7 and K8, mainly.....depending on the match, I have been known to run up into K0 as well. I can hit guys from B0 on south.

I gave up with the Priest. Best money for converting xp ever. The accuracy was indeed horrible.
The m41 is working for me. fast enough to run away if I'm paying attention to the minimap.
I survived a battle with the IS3, and still lost money

I'm going to keep the PZIV and try out the slightly upgraded L/48 (i think that's the right number) I will also be trying the L/70 on the 3601H I'm thinking a platoon with 3601H's one running a L/70 to snipe and keep them tracked and two more with the 88's to move in a rape them.. I have to say if the PZIV we have now become a premium tank i will buy it. What will piss me off is if I cant use my super crew from my PZIV in it. there 3ed set of skills are at 51% right now.



yes i'm a German tank junky there's 13 in that stable.

350% crews are nice to have, I have similar on my SU-26, BatChat 155 and Pz4.. same crews can be used on preminum tanks such as T-25, 105 leBH without performance penalty, not to mention extra earning capability for credit income in the premium tanks to allow higher tier plays with less worry of credit loss.

Band of Bros perk doesn't go into effect when all crew members have it at 100%.
I wait for the 1/2 price skill reset special come to come up and then set my crews for all of their first perks as Band of Bros.; no point training them separately at different time for that particular perk.

Surprised that you don't have Designated target for gunner or Safe Stowage as perk for loader.

I saw there's going to be a PZIV premium, but couldn't find any info on it. I wonder if they will do something like what they did withthe AMX series when 8.0 comes out. My Pz4 has 100% crew, but only working on thier 1st perk/skill. I had another 5 kill game with the PzIV yesterday.

The Stug keeps the L/70 right? That little guy is a menace when played right. It's about the only tank I can get good money and wins from.

SU26 makes more money than any of my German/American tanks. Got another top gun with it yesterday

Pretty sure once they come out with the Black Prince, if it's even remotely historically accurate, I'll probably sell the the Churchill and get that. If they make it a russian premium, then my Church crew can transfer over.

The whole British line is supposed to go live in 8.1, so I wouldn't be surprised to see the Black Prince be Brit, not Russian.

you made me go and look at that... The reason i do not have the Designated target skill is because I miss read it. i will be fixing that. I thought it was for after you died. I got it mixed up with the radio man one that does that. and the Brother in arms perk I also didn't realize it meant all of the crew had to have the perk for it to work I thought it meant that the whole crew had to hit 100% on that skill set, 1st 2ed or 3ed set of skills for it to kick in, I was thinking that was where the extra 11% on my crew was coming from.

And i didn't take Safe stowage because 90% of the time the PZIV does get hit there and when it does I'm normally dead anyway so i figured the extra camo was better for my play stile in it.

thanks for pointing those things out to me...



On to the PZIV premium, it is your PZIV right now, just will be a tier6 tank now. also the Black Prince from what i have read it's all that great in it's current form. people are asking for more horse power.

oh the regular PZIV will be a little faster then it is now due to the lose of the weight.
