Skoda T 27

Recommended Posts

I picked up this tank in order to complete the Czech portion of the Czech Holiday missions as the female crew you can earn would allow me to crew the Skoda T50 (a great tank that has been crewless in my garage for a long time). 

Overall, the Skoda T 27 is a good tank. Not a must have; it isn't OP and doesn't bring any new features or gameplay. Nobody is going to rage against its addition to the game...which I think is a good thing. Playstyle is very similar to the tech tree Czech IX and X tanks, and the crew layout is also the same.  If you like those tanks, which are fun and competitive in random battles but not generally used in organized play, then the T 27 is basically perfect.

 

Pros:

Autoloading fun.

Quick intraclip reload so you can get your 3 shots out in a short window (1.8 between shots, for comparison the Lorry is 2.5 seconds).

Gameplay and crew layout match high tier tech tree counterparts.

 

Cons:

Surprisingly sluggish for a medium, my first battle I went to a medium tank position I often use but got caught out and destroyed without getting any damage.

Reload is longer then you might expect for a clip with three 240 alpha shots.

202mm AP pen is fairly poor for tier 8 in WoT 2019.

Not a Progetto.

 

I was able to ace the tank on my 5th battle.

Completed all the Czech Holiday missions with the T27. The style is very nice and now I can crew the T50 with a new female crew.

Also, the crew books you get through the missions provide a nice starting crew.

New crew before the books...

Played 55 battles in the T27 to complete the Czech missions. Overall, my initial impressions that were shared in the opening post of this thread haven't changed; good tank that fits with the high tier tech tree tanks.

 

Two ace tankers from this weekend.

Bottom tier on Prok.

Guess your gunner is not too happy about going to the T50?

There’s always that one.
