I know it's not useful for CW due to armor that still can be penetrated, poor DPM, poor time between shots, poor speed.

 

But people are saying they use it in Frontline?

Yep, I have used it. Though kinda stuffs the credit earning, esp if I fire golden rounds :-)

 

But I am hardly a pro player.

Because Frontline is good for hulldown tanks, which the Emil is. 

 

In tier 8 only game, really only TD's will pen the turret front and maybe the Tiger II's gold.

Ahh right, because no tier 9 and no tier 9 with gold. That explains.

lol, yep, seems all the big auto loaders are blessed in this manner. Sometimes the rng and aiming combine to give you 1 maybe 2 hits at 100mts. But by [edited] it is great when all four hit and pen and the opposing tank is left in tatters.

The Emil I has the highest caliber autoloader at tier 8.

 

4 shots of 105mm (IKE)APCR can easily wipe out or cripple a single tank, and there's minimal risk to you if you stay hull-down thanks to that turret.

 

The gun handling is manageable for mid to short range. The reload is far shorter than that on the AMX 50 100, and the gun doesn't feel as weedy as the T69. There's no greater pleasure than to eviscerate those Italian fast-bois.

 

The mobility is sufficient, and at least you won't overextend yourself accidentally.

I havent played any Emils. They look good on paper. But when they shoot at me I tend to lol them. Yes; I physically laugh.

 

Emil II wasted an entire clip shooting at my wz131 @ 200m. I was moving well but they could have snagged at least one shot to kill me (200hp). I got a shot into its rear moving over a hill @50kph. Then a Tiger moves from cover to tap me in the face. Perfect shot.

 

The tier 9 looks bad; the 8 must be worserer. Something like the 50/100 should poop all over it. that thing can clip just about any 8??? saving some superHT punching bag

Yep, the Emil can be frustrating to say the least.

 

I find it more comfortable than the 50/100 though because it has useful turret armour. Using it effectively can be difficult on some maps. And the hull is just as weak as the 50/100.
