[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

AnnoA89_T54E1.png

3600000

The T54E1 is an American tier 9 medium tank.

A medium tank with an oscillating turret and automatic loading. Developed on the basis of the M48 tank in the mid-50s. Two prototypes were built. However, during trials automatic loading proved faulty and the development was discontinued in 1957.

Although at most pretty challenging to play due to its huge size, sluggish speed, weak armor, and poor gun handling, the T54E1 is made an effective tank by the power of its autoloaded weapons. Able to bring focused damage to a firefight, the T54E1 is not crippled by long reloads like many other autoloaded tanks, and is capable of first devastating an enemy force at the opening of hostilities, withdrawing, and then sweeping back in shortly after with a fresh clip to crush the remaining resistance. Effective timing and good support tactics allow a T54E1 driver to achieve victory.

The T54E1 leads to the T57 Heavy Tank.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Powerful top gun. High burst with the 105mm and fast interdrum cycle rate
  • Bouncy turret if angled right; many odd angles that can cause ricochets
  • Fairly maneuverable with good traverse speed
  • It's heavy enough to ram, allowing to finish enemies if they survive a full clip


Cons:


  • 2nd worst gun penetration of all tier 9 mediums; APCR penetration is rather unacceptable.
  • Poor gun handling in dispersion and aimed accuracy. Fires faster than it can aim.
  • Large size with poor armor and crew protection; frontal half section of hull is made out of pure ammo racks.
  • Top speed and acceleration is abysmal for a medium tank
  • Rather painful stock grind if M103 grind is not completed and can be extremely underwhelming in tier 10.


Performance

You can carry a total of 36 rounds with the 105mm gun, in clips of four. The reload time between round is 2.22 seconds with a 35 second drum reload, which is fast enough to not remove the tank completely from participation after the first burst before the end of a heated firefight. You can only load AP and APCR rounds, not HE. The aim time and accuracy for the 105mm are not in any way excellent, but not terrible. You are still an effective second row tank, a flanking, lurking, spam-damage machine. The penetration is 255mm for the APCR, which is not too bad, although you will have problems penetrating VK 45.02 B, and Type 4/5 frontally even with gold ammunition.

Again though, just like the T69, you need to operate either well out of the field, out on a flank, or lurk with a couple of big boys. Never go it alone somewhere that a flanking medium can pick you up. A T-62A for example, will eat you for breakfast in a head-to-head. Sometimes you'll be heckled for not 'playing like a normal medium' - just ignore it - you're not a 'normal medium' at all. Play it like a pocket heavy tank due to its heavy tank size and speed.

One thing that you might consider, if you have some pals with the same tank, is to mass-platoon three of them and stagger-fire, covering each other on the magazine reloads. The amount of metal coming out of a platoon of three that works closely together is insane, and you can certainly go it alone in this instance. Arty will be all over you like a rash though, so keep mobile, use that agility well and listen to that sweet sound of three 105mm cannons firing in rapid succession.


Early Research

  • The AN/GRC-7 radio carries over from the T71 (not the T69) and should be installed immediately.
  • The Continental AV-1790-3 engine carries over from the T29 if you played it previously.
  • The Continental AV-1790-5B engine can be used if the M103 is unlocked.
  • The AN/GRC-7 radio transfers over if you have the M103 elited.
  • You'll need the upgraded suspension before mounting the top gun.

Historical Info

The T54 was a series of prototype American tanks of the 1950s with three different turrets, all armed with a 105mm gun, mounted on the M48 Patton chassis. The original T54 had a conventional turret with an autoloader, while the turret on T54E1 was of an oscillating design with an autoloader and the one on T54E2 was conventional with a human loader. The turret on T54E1 was similar to that of the T69 in its oscillating design and in that it held a crew of three and a nine-round drum autoloader under the gun. The T54E1 was abandoned in 1956 and in 1957 the entire project was cancelled in favor of the T95 medium tank.
