Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Excellent rate of fire from 76 mm guns.
  • Ability to use Vertical Stabilizer (equipment)
  • Thick and wide gun mantlet coupled with excellent gun depression allows the use of hull-down tactics
  • Thicker beak and glacis plate makes cresting a bit safer than for most tanks even compared to the E8
  • The front upper glacis is very effective at "front scraping" incoming fire if angled 45 degrees on the side of a building wi


Cons:


  • Penetration is insufficient against many higher tier opponents, and often struggles against the sides of tier 8 tanks.
  • Low penetration and alpha damage on top gun, compared to other Tier 6 mediums
  • Somewhat large and tall, making it easy to hit
  • Transmission is mounted in the lower glacis, although it is well protected.
  • One of the slowest mediums with slow acceleration.


Performance

Playstyle of the E2 is very similar to the E8 just know that you aren't as quick. With a stronger upper glacis and the same turret, the E2 is a more effecitve hull down tank. It is best to go with the mediums in most cases if your team has a large number of them. One key advantage that the E2 has over the E8 is the ability to frontscrape from the corner of a building. While the sides are just as thin as on the E8, with the added protection of the front upper glacis plate, the E2 has the ability to bounce an ACPR shot from an IS-3 BL-9 off the front. While possible, it is not recommended but know that if in a situation where you are using a building as protection, it is possible to bait an enemy shot with effective use of angling off the building.
