Škoda T 27

As the first Czechoslovakian high-tier Premium vehicle, the Škoda T 27's qualities are similar to the top-tier medium tanks – high mobility, a quick and dangerous autoloader, and a bouncy turret. So if you're already a fan of the regular vehicles, this tank is the perfect choice to train your crews and earn plenty of credits!

Gameplay

So far, none of the Czechoslovakian medium tanks is about the armour, and the Škoda T 27 is no exception. Its hull is large and squishy, making you a juicy target if you are not careful. The turret isn't that thick either, and any well-placed shot will penetrate. Yet it can bounce shells in the heat of battle because of its round shape and favourable angles, plus the decent gun depression angle. However, expect to take damage if you get hit.

One of the biggest advantages of this vehicle is its great mobility. To be more specific, its high acceleration allows it to reach its decent top speed quickly, which will often come in handy, since you will need to retreat quickly after shooting your opponents. The Škoda T 27 also has a good view range, even though it's not as important for this type of vehicle.

In terms of stats, its gun seems like a modified German 8.8 cm gun, enhanced with a three-round autoloader. The shot per damage is average, yet the reload time of each shell inside the magazine is very low compared to others. Both the accuracy and the aiming time are pretty solid, especially for autoloaders. Use this combination to surprise the enemy, pump your shells into their armour, and get out of there before they even realise it.

If you are reloading your magazine, you'll have a giant X mark on your vehicle, as you are completely defenceless. Before you initiate your attack, make sure you have cover to retreat to, where you can plan the next one.

With its rounded turret and rational angles of the vehicle’s sloped armor plates, one can count on casual ricochets but shouldn’t rely on the thickness of the armor. Conserve your HP by making the most of the vehicle’s mobility and surprise factor—its good view range will definitely help with this.

When the situation demands it, high specific power and a decent top speed allow for swift changes in position on the battlefield. And don’t forget to reload your magazine during long maneuvers, so you can achieve maximum battle performance.
   

Equipment

Recommended Setup

Hover your cursor over the images for more information on each piece of equipment.

As you know, autoloaders cannot mount a Tank Gun Rammer, so the focus will be on the general performance of the vehicle. The Vertical Stabiliser will increase your gun stabilisation substantially. Even though the view range doesn't play a big role in the Škoda T 27's playstyle, mounting it can prove useful in many situations. Or you might just want to go for the Enhanced Gun Laying Drive instead. Finally, the Improved Ventilation grants a useful bonus to most of the vehicle's parameters.
