So no questions about the setup?

Can't believe noone else has studied and commented on this.  Great guide.  Also a potentially great tank to buy and learn from Storm's teachings..

Prob because they don;t wanna play T-34-3 if they can. T-34-3 in most pub matches suck. A lot.

Crappy stats for life.

You can say the same about every tank because 95% of the player base couldn't tell the [edited] end of their tank from the frontal armor.

 

T-34-3 buff inbound too right.  So Storm's analysis will only be more spot on.  Not surprised if it becomes a padder's dream soon.  At least until they re-sell the Type 59

They don't! T-34-3 is great for surprising the odd pubbie with 390 alpha! I can brawl and wolfpack in this tank, with a little sacrifice to the efficacy of the former!

 

Storm, great job with this guide man! I see my name up there too :p

Genuine question that's somewhat relevant:

 

Does over matching apply to HE rounds?

Great guide Storm.

I just recently bought this tank, having read this very guide, and hearing that the reload will be getting buffed makes me quite happy.

I like Chinese tanks, and this will make a great trainer for my 120 crew, being they are rather similar in style.

I've owned the Type 59 for a long time and is still, probably after all this time, my favorite tank.

I'd dearly love to plat with you in it so you can show me some more pointers.

Many pubbies think the T-62A sucks too, their loss.

Pretty sure it doesn't, although I can't say for sure because I rarely shoot HE, even less so in the T-34-3 because the reload is so long, the risk is not really worth it.

Thanks! Next time you see me in-game send me an invite, I'm a bit rusty as i haven't played much lately but I should still be able to give some advice.

I just brought the tank last night , do you recommend drive by shooting under 50 m ? T-34-3 takes awhile to pick up speed so I wonder if it is a good idea to shoot at people while moving <30kph.

Playing K-91 makes me happy XD

Depends on the situation, generally don't stop f you are trying to get somewhere (like the cap) or if you will probably take damage if you stop, otherwise stop and shoot. Of course the main thing is to judge the situation and make the decision yourself.

 

By the way, the tank takes some getting used to, especially with a crew that doesn't have at least one skill, so try not to judge it too harshly.

I played 13 games and I had as much fun as my other medium , the T-34-3 is harsh against mistake though . I paid the price for my carelessness at the first half of the game , I somewhat gotten to terms with the gun depression but positioning is still my weakness and I always find myself at places where I cannot return fire or make use of the turret . Storm can you teach me on positioning and timing ? I often misjudge the opportunity and gotten myself into trouble . 

 

* That being said , I liked the tank very much . My first 122 mm gun tank and I realised the potential of one hitting stuffs :D

 

SPECIAL THANKS to LittleTimmy for platooning with me on my quest to learn new tanks .

Sorry noob question. I thought Vents adds 5% to all skill n perks, so it means 5% of aiming time too rite? Or I've been mislead?
Spoiler

I heard it was just 2% plus according to some forum post , I could be wrong though .

5% to crew skills, which translates to ~2.2% boost to everything.

I think the t-34-3 isn't that efficient to pad in, found it quite tough to push past the 3.6k wn8 ceiling for it because the gun will inevitably derp.

Though the requirements for it are decently low.


Bye tanks!

Do you think that the new accuracy buffs to it's boom stick will make it more viable in pubs, or not enough to worry?

Nice write up storm, one of my favourite tier 8s, although havent played it recently as trying the 112 atm. Just a few things to add (which i know some people disagree with but....)

1) vents does help with aim time and accuracy enough that if you dont have optics or think an egld is overkill is a good option (just saying but I have a good crew so the vents stack up, either 3 of the options works)

2) you often need to aim to the side to get the gun down enough or it feels that way to me.

3) you have heaps of ammo so dont be a scrub take a decent amount of all ammo types (250pen is more than enough for the lfp of an e75 if your teams full of idiots and your backs up against the wall.)

4) turret armour is good, but not uber strong around the gun = flatish

5) this tank does not fire on the move except point blank

6) drive it like an autoloader mentality.

7) works well in type 59 packs, but even better with either the is6 or 112 (both speedy enough).

8) auto fire extinguisher is a must like you said, and ammo rack is fragile even with safe stowage.....

9) pubs underestimate you on their flanks and your low dpm can make them not concentrate on you.

10) save your hp towards the end game as the derp is very good for killing off people at the end on low hp.

11) you will still make credits with premium shells if you pen, so if you need it pls use it (your team will thank you).

 

 

anyhow would be fun to toon up with others who like the t-34-3, as a 3 man t-34-3 platoon is the only combination i havent tried with this tank.
