In my opinion it is an overrated tank, primarily overhyped by unicums. It has an excellent gun with good DPM, but compared to other tanks its armor model has big weakspots and hulldown plays are almost impossible due to the cupola.
The armor layout is good and bad at the same time. It has a boat shaped hull which helps the otherwise thin side armor, but it's possible to track and damage the tank at the same time even when sidescraping properly.
Speed and agility are mediocre. It's almost necessary to use Turbo. You can't really take any decent heavy head-on, so you will need to manouver around enemies, but the underwhelming mobility holds you back.
Overall, I don't like how WG put the concept of this tank into practice. The tank wants to be a jack-of-all-trades, but it's more like master-of-none due its lackluster stats in many departaments. Whenever i'm playing this tank i'm always focusing on how to not get gangbanged into the cupola and instead of being proactive, I feel at the mercy of the enemy. I think this tank needs a slight increase in overall mobility and a significant reduction in cupola size so it still has a turret weakspot, but can play hull-down more comfortably.
