M4A1 Revalorise Unicum Guide/Review, When to Snipe vs Push

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (215 votes, average: 4.93 out of 5)


I review the Revalorisé aka “Ravioli”, a tier 8 in World of Tanks (), with replays of tier 10 and Tundra battles.

Is it worth it? I think so. The Ravioli is a fun tank to play due to its gun characteristics. As a tier 8 premium, it’s an excellent credit earner. The Ravioli is purchasable at any time as it’s part of the French tech tree.

Strengths and Weaknesses
+ Superb alpha damage (390)
+ APCR as silver ammo with very high shell velocity
+ Superb max gun depression (-10)
+ Excellent gun handling
+ Excellent accuracy (0.35)
+ Good view range (390m)
– Squishy
– Large profile
– Low top-end speed (40 km)
– Sluggish acceleration
– Poor hull traverse, circling an opponent ain’t happening
– Long reload time (12.8 sec base)

The Ravioli is a “finesse” tank but it fills its role effectively.

Recommend Equipment
1. Rammer
2. VStab
3. Optics

Some Unicums favor Vents over Optics but as you probably know from my prior videos, I place high value on vision control for lights and mediums.

Viewers have asked me to review various premium tanks that I don’t have in my garage. If you’re feeling generous and want to gift me a premium tank, let me know and in most cases I’ll be happy to review it.

I talk through how I’m reading the battle as it unfolds and discuss key decisions and mistakes. My hope is that these videos meaningfully help players improve their gameplay.

If you want to support my WoT habit (thanks that’s generous of you), you can send me gold in-game, or you can donate via PayPal or by shopping on Amazon:



  1. Geeze Taug. The uploads! Great video bud.

  2. makes me quite happy to know that I’m not the only one liking this tank.
    I enjoyed this video and I think you clearly understand how to play this tank 🙂
    while you try to 3 Mark it or are you not interested in doing so ?

  3. good to see you back, Taugrim. nice vid!

  4. My favourite premium tier VIII tank.

  5. Cosmin Herciu-Sava

    Cannot wait to hear what you have to say about the new patch. Also, I’m a new player (kinda, 2k battles) and your videos really help me understand the game better. Keep it up!

  6. I enjoy my M4A1 Rev. too, but you can certainly get into big trouble if you are not always mindful of where the reds are as you won’t bounce anything.  Nevertheless, that gun is real fun.  I also appreciate, again, how you weave into your commentary how WarGaming can introduce more balanced premiums to the game.  If they have an advisory staff, you should be on it.

  7. I can’t believe that Malinovka game. All your heavies went hill like they are supposed to? Wtf? Every game I have they either camp base or go K4 to die. :feelsbadman:

  8. Lack of mobility and low-ish pen on ravuoli made me choose the sta2 as my go-to credits source.
    The current influx of defenders in pub games and skirmishes makes this tank much less enjoyable to play, unfortunately.

  9. Great information. I love that you solo a lot, so it shows that without gold ammo and without great team mates you can still carry. Thanks for platooning the other night!

  10. Twomark on Rev is around 2.5-3k avg is it?

  11. Paulius Rinkevicius

    could you do a unicum guide to obj 416? pls

  12. How would u play the Rev. in a city map like Ensk,
    Ruinberg, Windstorm or Himmelsdorfff??

  13. thank you taugrim was just thinking about getting it on next trade in your video helped a lot

  14. Pretty good video. How many master badge games have you gotten in it at this point?

  15. No prem ammo… #Respect

  16. Man i have been watching you since warhammer and dude, Eve Online is like the PERFECT fit for your personality if you manage to break the first impression

  17. Ravioli? only in America lol. Reva-low-reese-ay or Reva- Loris depending where you are in the world but in America it’s Pasta,,, lol thats great.We Mericans could care less…..Z iz Z dammit, NOT Zed, that’s 3 letters, not one. Grill-a or grill. which others are there?

  18. infinitelyExplosive

    I noticed that you generally aim down as soon as you de-scope. Is there some advantage to doing this or is it just a habit?

  19. The Pilot Penguin
