    I used to like the tank, but i was quite unlucky against arty and the ammount of mediums lately. Just like the Lowe, this thing gets overrun by mediums, once the support runs away or dies.

    Still a sexy tank with a formidable gun.

      I despise how that tank lost it’s fear factor. Tier 9 JT has a gun with both punch and ridiculous DPM. Also, very high pen and ridiculous HP for it’s tier. Jt 8.8 has only DPM.

      I bought this on a prvious offer and just found everything I met penned the frontal armour anyway. Probably using Premium ammo, but regardless it did not prove much good.

        Bought it ages ago, when it was still available on keystores as a bonus code. It costed less then 10EUR back then.
        It even makes good money in games where you did poorly and you will do poorly rather often. Sometimes you are too slow to get enough targets and sometimes your team gets overrun before you arrive at the frotline.
        Its sometimes rather frustrating to play.

    my most played tank, cant recommend it though, special playstyle is required.
    dont have the new skorpion, but jagd 88 rivals it when it comes to cred income.
    and when fighting lowtier…… like a fox in the hen-house….

      Try shooting lower tiers with tier 9 JT. Only words that come to my mind are “destruction” and “annihilation”. Amount of people thinking they can outreload a JT and ending up with 1120 hp less is amusing. Also, great feeling when they choke on 2100 hp.

        jagd 128 aint what it used to be, feels like a pure defensive tank, pushing in most maps is out of the question. much prefer the 704 as an assault gun at tier 9.
        got 3.3k dpm on the jagd88, so fast reload that, u can shoot track, shoot tank, shoot track and repeat until dead.
        can outdpm just about everything in favourably conditions

        had a favourite spot on old pearl river where i could go hulldown near a bridge, and stop everything coming from that flank. just track,track,track.

    This is really the only vehicle in the calendar I wanted and I was hoping it would be offered by itself. However I’m not paying the full Tier VIII price for it. The entire point of Christmas Sales is that stuff is supposed to be cheaper than it normally is so that people will buy more of it. War Gaming doesn’t seem to be able to grasp this concept though.

    Against tanks with less than 180 pen it can be godlike, but anything with more pen will just pen you over and over again until you die. Too slow to follow the main push so you’ll either get no damage or a bit of damage before dying because by the time you get there the fight is already over. Even after 600+ battles, can’t really recommend for anything other than farming credits, which it does better than any other tank currently on sale
