SU-14-2 also run out of ammo quite offen.

 

Yes, same number of rounds as the M40/M43 with a slightly longer reload.

when you are playing a SPG, you got to roleplay LT, MTs, HTs what tanks are more likely to spot targets for you, as rule of thumb, support your own team's LT or first tank on the action during 1st minute of the game. i can't recall how many times i saved my team's LT just by landing a full pen shot on enemy LT.

I have a raider in my GW Panther :hiding:

 

Also there are generally 3 spots you aim at in any map in arty. 2 to start of with, where 1 is where the LTs are lit first and 2 is where the heavies will be spotted. 

 

Once you know the 3 spots its literally click and alt tab.

Yup, Marks of Excellence definitely MUCH harder to get - of the 6 SPGs I play regularly (all German with their problems, damnit), I have 5 ACEs but no second stripes and only 4 first.

Strange about the MOE.  I thought it was based on how we do compared to others using that same tank for the week.  Is there some sort of artificial prerequisite as well?

That would be my guess. Easily the hardest tanks to mark in my experience. But then that could just be me being bad at arty.

I'd think the problem is that the difference between someone who is good at arty versus merely competent is markedly smaller than other classes of vehicle, and is easily lost in the much larger amount of noise due to the RNG leading to huge variations in the amount of damage you can do from game to game.

tell me about moe, i tried to 3 mark my m53, highest it went was 93% but a series of bad maps and games send it to a downward spiral.

 

now i simply don't care and play spg for my own amusement.

 

And a good friend of mine told me, go for stun assist damage if you are marking spg, shoot the enemy tanks that can be shot by your allies. Damage is secondary. Its better to get an instant 1.5k stun assist on a open HT rather then just going for 400-500 damage per 33sec depending on how your team is spotting targets
