Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Mobility hasn't changed much despite it has bigger gun and more armor on the turret
  • The 90 mm canon is replaced by a 105 mm canon with access to HEATFS and APDS shells (HEATFS is very cheap)
  • Has an auto-loader and can fire 10 shells continuously every 5 second before it has to reload
  • Good gun depression (-8/13)
  • Good turret rotation speed
  • Turret has thick, angled armor. Only a few tanks can penetrate it
  • Premium RP/SL bonuses and all modes are fully unlocked

Cons:

  • Flat armor beneath the canon and the hull armor are both easily penetrated
  • Takes a long time to load a shell into the autoloader
  • Most penetrating shots will disable the gun or detonate the ammo
  • Tall and big turret with long gun barrel makes hiding without being seen almost impossible
