I recently re-purchased this tank to grind the Object 430U line, as many of you have asked for a review for the 430U.
It’s been 5 years since I reviewed the T44, back in Episodes #4 and #5.
It’s worth revisiting this tank for several reasons:
1. The meta in the game has shifted towards more armor on tanks, especially heavies, and players have often asked how to deal with that in tanks such as the T-44 that have lackluster silver ammo penetration
2. The T-44 received meaningful buffs in 2018 to the turret armor, engine, gun handling, and silver penetration (+7). The first two buffs meaningfully impact how this tank can be used, especially for spotting
3. I’m a much better player now than I was in 2015
Strengths and Weaknesses (with 100mm LB-1 gun)
+ Superb turret protection
+ Excellent camouflage (over 32 with Camo + BIA)
+ Good gun depression (-7)
+ Good gun handling
+ Good acceleration
+ Good alpha (250)
+ Low profile
– Poor silver AP penetration (190)
– Poor view range (380)
– Low HP (1300)
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.
