Survivability – The Hull armour of this tank is very troll but not immune to penetration, it is really a hit or miss (no pun intended). Having said that, for its tier, it is one of the most heavily armoured hulled tanks. The Turret armour on the other hand is quite weak, and indeed can be penetrated by many if not most of the tanks it will come accross in-game. As such, I’m giving this tank a 7/10.
Mobility – The power-to-weight ratio of this tank is 9.42 giving it a 2/5, while the average traverse speed of the tank is 27.065 giving it a 2/5
View Range – The View Range of this tank is 350 meters giving it a 8/10
Concealment Whilst Stationary (Camouflage) – The Camouflage rating of this tank is 8.04% giving it a 4/10
Value – This tank in my opinion is a very valuable tank. For its tier, it has decent penetration, and combined with its easy to play mechanics, forgiving armour, and great credit making ability, I’m giving this tank a solid 8/10.
Thus, the final BrandScore is 56/100
Would I buy this tank again? For sure! I think it is a fun, cheap, and easy to use tank that is very forgiving for inexperienced players while also being fun for those who are very experienced. Also, a very good looking tank model!
