WG published another official how to play guide for the rare prem tank.
- Almost impenetrable fortress on tracks;
- ROF is faster, which allows you to land shots quicker than your enemies;
- Great earner and trainer for the crew;
- Preferential matchmaking is limited to Tier IX (at the moment).
- Vents, Eq. Rammer, Vert. Stab.
Another option is L. Spall Liner, which will help to minimize dmg from HE and artillery. The tank is pretty vulnerable for both due to weak spots.
Now, that's what I call a drawback. Nevertheless, the rest of its armor is a real deal, so the task is simple: do not expose the weak points to your opponents.
A replay of skillful game commented by QuickyBaby. It really helps to understand the potential of the tank.
