I review the T29, a tier 7 heavy tank in of Tanks (WoT), with a replay of a tier 8 Erlenberg battle.

Stat line: Ace Tanker, 4.1k damage, 4 kills

With its hull-down capability, the T29 is one of the strongest at-tier in the game. I found it to be very comfortable to and enjoyed driving it.

Strengths and Weaknesses
+ superb turret
+ superb max depression (-10)
+ excellent silver penetration (198)
+ excellent aim (2.3 sec)
+ good alpha (320)
+ good speed
– relatively weak hull armor
– slow hull traverse / turns sluggishly
– slow reverse speed, which can be problematic versus arty

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 other players improve their gameplay.

  1. +Phillip Huang I’d prefer to be able to spot the mediums and TDs at long
    range after I’m done brawling rather than make it better at brawling. I
    want to compliment the tank with equipment that helps it be better overall,
    not make it excel at 1 thing only. And vents are pretty much a waste of
    equipment on tier 10s from what I see. And I don’t need GLD, because I have
    a 3 skill crew and Snapshot on gunner and VS.

  2. Or enhanced laying drive

  3. Tbh I would recommend vents due to you enjoying it’s a brawler and 2nd
    since it already has good view range. So would you rather have 5 % overall
    or 10% more view range. After all the choice is yours

  4. +Nguyen Ba Nhat Minh kv-13 but i prefer the A-44

  5. Hmm I would say e2

  6. Yes really good 🙂

  7. +Taugrim
    the thing with the tiger 1 is that it may have good dpm but it doesnt have
    much else because the turret is placed in such a way that it cant
    sidescrape very well and its front armour is useless. so in my opinion that
    dpm is justified because thats one of its few strengths. The t29 has so
    many great features as you mentioned like weirdly good gun handling great
    gun dep, decent hull armour, invulnerable turret (also the turret roof is
    only an overmatch zone for 120mm and above guns) when you are shooting down
    at someone. decent mobility and good view range. In my opinion it is good
    enough to be put at tier 8 with just a minor hp buff and it would be fine.

  8. +DEANOGTO > Do you not think this thing is really op?

    I think it’s fair to say the T29 is stronger than its peers. Then again,
    the Tiger I has crushing DPM, and the IS is a brawling beast.

    What makes the T29 overpowered, is the fact that most tier 7 tanks either
    lack the accuracy to hit the roof / cupola or lack the pen and alpha to be

    > the hull is a LOT more troll than you’d think from the armour values that
    sloping makes it very annoying

    With angling, yes the T29 hull will bounce some shells. It won’t hold up
    against the guns of tier 8 and tier 9 heavies.

    > AMX M4 in comparison

    The M4 is a crappy tank if you use silver ammo, and it’s the weakest tank
    by far in the French heavy line between tiers 5-10.
