German heavy trainer?



Though it should probably be noted that it might not deliver quite what this video shows ... :?

Oooops silly old me, forgot about the Lowe' :oops:
Yet I remember seeing it when having a look at the Prem tanks in the shopping shop.
I might give it a go, I shall have to see.

Does it get normal or prem MM so that I don't have to make my lazy self find out for myself ?

It gets normal MM, doesn't need preffered because the gun is good. Play it like a TD and you can't go wrong imo - the accuracy of that gun is just awesome.

Awesome :o7

I really like mine despite the drawbacks of being giant with hull armour that doesn't bounce very much and a weak spot that makes side-scraping a bit hazardous. Reverse side-scraping is sometimes better as it also has the common German heavy weakness of mounting the gearbox behind the LFP. But get it to a spot where you can hide the LFP and keep the mantle pointed towards the enemy and it suddenly makes a lot more sense. :)

A bit like my T29, T32, T34, hull down trying to hide the LFP just showing the turret ?

Try to hide the whole hull since it is garbage on the Lowe. And never ever ever ever ever get into a brawl since you will lose. DPM is garbage and tanks like the IS6 will completely wreck it in a close brawl.

I found out exactly that, with an IS-6 wrecking me on Fishermans Bay when I had a quick half a dozen games (mostly terrible) and one of them with the Lowe' for the first time this afternoon. :(

I will have to try to play it a bit more, because playing one tank, going back to the garage, picking another one etc., I won't get used to its play style doing that. :D
Thanks for the advice Drak/Dram. :trl
