I had a bit of a honeymoon period with this tank, and I've slowly come back to earth with my recent results in it. It's a dpm factory that can shred most of the tanks that it gets placed in front of. However, its armour is a huge compromise considering the sheer size of this tank. 250mm at the thickest part of the superstructure is enough for most tier 9 tanks to pen with a coinflip chance, and considering tanks like the Object 263 exist it does feel like a bit of a letdown when comparing the armour profile of the two. You feel too cumbersome to snipe in it but too weak to brawl, meaning it exists in this strange limbo of hybrid play where you have to think very carefully about the matchups that you are in. The mantlet is a reliable shield if you can get hulldown, but this tank is essentially a great gun on an underwhelming platform. The really fantastic part is that you can be competitive straight away as the starter gun is perfectly workable with decent dpm and penetration, so there are no moments where you want to rip your hair out trying to grind for a better gun or engine.
