Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Very Mobile, top speed is good.
  • Traverse was buffed, and is good at circling heavies.
  • Gun performance is great.
  • DPM is fantastic.
  • Very bouncy turret front.


Cons:


  • Penetration is low, needs to use APCR ammunition against tier 8 and 9s.
  • alpha damage low.
  • Hull armor weak.
  • Weak ammo rack.


Performance

The Comet is a versatile thing, fit for sniping, circling heavies, and (to a certain extent) go hull-down. The top gun is accurate and quick-firing, perfect for long-range assualt. The traverse speed is greater than the Cromwell's, and can therefore easily circle and flank heavies and TDs. The speed, although nerfed from the Cromwell, is still good, which lets you go the long way around and flank enemies. The bouncy turret front lets you go hull-down, but unlike the T29, you can't just sit there. Your turret is not all-powerful, so make you move and duck into cover. From the above description, you would think that the Comet is the tank of your dreams. But in reality, weaknesses make sure that the Comet is no good at any one thing. The gun has low alpha damage and penetration, which is a problem if you are sniping or taking the enemies head-on. Going hull-down does not protect your ammo rack, which can be damaged even from the front. Although, fortunately, the ammo rack has enough durability to not explode on you with normal use, it will hinder your good gun. Also, you have a weak hull, not excellent speed, and a relatively large silhouette, which means rivals will be determined to send you to the garage. In all, the Comet is a challanging medium, but you can reap from the rewards.
