  • Bad gun depression and even worse elevation.
  • Prone to driver death and ammo rack damage

How to play on T 55A

There is a lot to say about the tactics of combat on the T 55A NVA DDR. After all, we have a real medium tank in our hands, with good mobility, a decent weapon and even serious armor.

Based on this, you can play quite aggressively, the directions for medium tanks are great for us, and having several allies nearby, acting together, you can easily break through the flanks. At the same time, the T 55A World of Tanks can not act rashly, sometimes, especially at the beginning of the battle, it makes sense to shoot from the second line, wait for the positional game and make some decisions.

If we talk about general tips, those players who learn to play from the terrain using the T 55A WoT armored tower will be rewarded with good results, a lot of enemy scalps and positive emotions. However, this is not so easy, because you need to get used to the fact that the gun bends down badly.

Otherwise, we can very quickly change the flanks, support the allied forces in different directions, return to protect the base, etc. As already mentioned, the T 55A medium tank is a very versatile and creative machine, capable of much in the right hands. And remember, although this car is similar to the T-54, it is much easier to break through it, and therefore you should play more carefully.

How to get T 55a in World of Tanks?

To obtain the T55a tank in World of Tanks, players must successfully complete the first set of Personal Missions, which are a series of tasks that are designed to test your skills in battle.

Boost services provide experienced players who will complete the missions for you, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of the T55a without having to go through the trouble of completing the missions yourself.

Brief summary

The T 55A is similar to the T-54, yet has more in common with the T-62A. The noticeably weaker hull armor doesn't allow you to be as aggressive as in a T-54, however, your turret armor and side armor are the same, so you still can sidescrape or stay hull down if possible and needed. Your superior gun handling gives you the edge and makes snap shots extremely potent and likely to hit even on the move. Therefore, you should focus more on flanking and quick snap shots, however, your short aim time combined with the very good accuracy also makes long range fights a real option. If caught in a close encounter, fear not -- the D-10T2S gun also has a high rate of fire only seconded by the same gun on the T-54 (that doesn't handle really well), the Obj. 430 II (which is a sniping tank with limited gun traverse, not so competitive in this case) or a few smaller calibre guns on other tanks. There will always be some advantage to exploit: either to trade, to simply outgun, or to land the crucial first shot with more precision.

The reduced top speed in comparison is perceptible, but not dramatic. In most cases, your quick acceleration and very good terrain resistance values make you no less as mobile.

A special mention is needed regarding the crew. Training crew from Leopard line, which is most logical, comes with a caveat: T55A's loader also doubles as a radio operator, while most other tanks from the Leopard line have commander for that role. This means that you won't be able to make use of situational awareness skill if it is already trained on commander - it has to be trained on loader as well if you intend to switch crews a lot, wasting one skill slot.

Beware of ammo costs - this tank is not a true "premium", it is just a reward "Elite" tank, and still retains very expensive ammo like the T-54. Especially premium ammo. Shooting pure premium ammo will burn your credits considerably faster than any other tank in the game.
