General info

The T95E1 in the garage.

The Medium Tank T95E1 is a Rank VI American medium tank with a battle rating of 8.0. It was introduced in Update 1.69 "Regia Aeronautica". Presenting a 90 mm smoothbore cannon, it is currently the first tank in the American tree line that uses APFSDS ammunition.

The main purpose, usage and tactics recommendations

General play style

The T95E1's playstyle consists of mostly setting up ambushes and/or on the frontlines. The APFSDS shell has more than enough power to destroy most tanks that it will face; however, on a uptier against T-64's and KPz-70's, you will need to play more cautiously, thus the ambushing tactics come into play. You must be extremely aware of what is around you and be quicker than your enemy on the gun because the lack of stabilizers will make your shot on the move very difficult.

Cons:

  • Large exposed cupola on turret top serves as prominent weak point.
  • Sluggish acceleration.
  • Large ammo racks to the sides of driver, front hull penetration could lead to easy ammo detonation.

Modules and improvements

History of creation and combat usage

In the early 1950s, the US began looking for a replacement for the M48 series. In September 1954, the T95 was selected for development; construction of pilot models began in 1957. The T95E1 differed from the T95 in the inclusion of a recoil system mount and the omission of a two-plane stabilizer, and was completed in early 1958.

The T95 program was shut down in July 1960 when it became clear that both the engine power and smoothbore cannon's accuracy were unsatisfactory and would provide no significant improvements over the M48 already in service. However, further development of the turret design contributed significantly to the turret used later on the M60A1.
