Start at the T1 and work up......going in at the T29 through the Jumbo is a recipe for pain.

Here's a nice carry I had last night. The lesson here is know the tank and take advantage of every strength it has. Having a triple skill crew doesn't hurt, either.....

Bring the Pain! 1/2 assed thinking of getting a T14, once the T29 is researched retrain the Jumbo crew into the T14 and switch em back and forth like I do with my Super P/Patton. All I need now is a sale

I've played the T1 and M6 on the boys account to realize I didn't like those tanks so much. Had a battle with 8 T29's in it! For some strange reason, I was on top with my IS. I didn't last very long. I called it quits after that.

Went 9-6 last night with 2 strings of 3 wins.

Little buggers are worth 20 grand each - sell them after 8.7 comes out - or do I like did (they are on sale for 10k right now) and spend 2.5 million on them and pimp all yer tanks

I had one in my Lowe last night.. someone shot me, the auto extinguisher caught it right away and I went "YES!"
then another bullet hit me and caught me on the fire again.. burning me to the ground "NO!"

Then I suggest you have the free xp available to research the 90mm immediately.....a T29 with the stock 76mm is about the most useless tank in the game.

T29 seems to be my arch nemesis when I'm in my AT15. Them things have pretty stout armor. Well, not that the penn on the AT is so hot

I'm working on building up enough free XP that when the Japanese line is released I can just unlock the Tier 10 and skip the rest

Officially, no. Unofficially, I figure if they were going to deploy this week, it would have arrived today.

You mean AT-15A? It gets the best of a T29 unless it is hull down. Even then, correctly angled (hull 20 left with cupola concealed) the T5E1 can't pen it without premium shells.
