yeah it's fun, i'd only get it for the novelty factor though

Yep, thanks to being soviet, it's getting (or has gotten, didn't bother logging in for a while) a BR reduction to 1.0 and becoming a pay2win item.

;_; cursed bussian Rias! 1000 curses upon the OP russian ammo locker!

I didn't say it's because of bias... it's just a matter of fact that Germany/Japan do not get such BR drops NOR do they get such interesting vehicles.

 

All Axis gets are some reskins... partially even of not-so-interesting own planes/tanks

in a way you have a point. The F6F is a major offender. But the T-35 is a weak tank.

The thing is, that it's weakness is being slow, big and weakly armored... sure, we all know that.

 

However: Gaijin is going to rate it only for that.

 

It has 2 turrets as powerful as the best one available in 1.0, but with a better turret traverse.

On top of that, it has a 75mm "Mortar" which can and will effectively 1-shot pretty much everything it can face.

 

It would be reasonably fine against soviet tanks with the 45mm Gun, as it has a very good after-armor effect and can face off and cripple the T-35 enough to get off more shots.

 

Panzer II with their 20mm will however look at a fat bullet sponge, the chance of really crippling it to that degree isn't that high and takes some time which allows the T-35 to land a shot on you and wipe you out.

 

 

Hell, I wouldn't even mind if the T-35 was 1.7 atm and would drop to 1.0 because it gets wrecked... but such a drop from 2.3 (i think) in the first BR-change after it's added? In a Game that ignores BR-issues on other Vehicles over a year despite the community being absolutely enraged about it?

 

I mean there wasn't any huge load of threads saying "OMG T-35 UP", at least no well-supported ones... on the other hand we have HUNDREDS of threads about Matchmaking or specific Battlerating issues, where over 90% of the community are acknowledging that changes need to be done.

 

1.3 BR drops? I'd understand it for a Spitfire Mk.Vc, many German/Japanese vehicles, many Bombers from all nations etc. but seeing a Soviet Premium Vehicle having it's BR adjusted downwards THAT quickly (seriously, most people have hardly figured out how the turrets work) after release does leave a bad taste... for me at least.

Magirus ARW

Panzer I Ausf. F

15 cm sIG 33 (Sf) auf Panzerkampfwagen I Ausf B "Bison"

Dicker Max

Sturer Emil

Semovente da 20/70 Quadruplo (Italian AA Tank, only one build and captured by Germans, used in combat)

8.8cm Flak 18 Selbstfahrlafette auf Zugkraftwagen 12t

Panzer III Ausf L mit Waffe 0725

Leichttraktor

 

...  the only premium vehicle worth mentioning for Germany is the KV-1, which is the only one where Gaijin made some effort (and it still has the wrong turret)... and maybe the Pack-Only tanks, but I'm so not gonna buy another Pack while sitting on 13k+ GE with nothing to spend for.

Yes it's fun. Alot of fun, and Pretty Unique until the US Multi -Turret Tanks come out I think.

 

But it is a big slow target so if people know where to aim ((Ammo rack in the center)) It falls apart pretty fast.

the thing is that it's still relatively rare; a well placed shot from a BT-7 or T-26 can take it out pretty easily, but in most maps at medium range its a nightmare to face, and eminently fun to play. Fighting in poland in the city can get you as many as 14 or more kills. one problem, however, is that the T-35's 45mm sub-turrets aren't synced to use the main scope, so aiming with them can be a chore.

Hi, so I've heard that some T-35's were equipped with the L-10 76.2mm cannon instead of the KT-28 76.2mm cannon? I think this should be included. What do you think?

No, that would have to be a separate tank. (if it's true, and I don't think it is)

I was just thinking, the in-game information told something about some of them being eguipped with the L-10 instead of the KT-28.

It appears true of the T-28, and the T-28 and T-35 have the same turret, so theoretically it's possible.

"In 1938, the L-10 tank cannon was proposed for the main turret weapon, but the representatives of the ABTU (the "Auto-Tank Directorate") abandoned this idea, considering the power of the KT-28 enough for the purpose of defeating enemy armored vehicles and the accompaniment of attacking infantry was provided for by the two 45-mm cannons."

I assume that means there's no way to get the L-10 for it :(
