T-44 Review After the 9.20 Buffs: Thanks WG!
If you’re among the millions of players who worked through the Russian medium lines to get the T-54, Obj. 140 and T-62, you probably didn’t much enjoy the grind through the T-44.
The tank was generally considered pretty hum drum. Not terrible, but just not really very good.
My own experience wasn’t so bad; I have a win rate percentage in the high 50s, but I really struggled to get much damage due to the poor turret armour, gun depression, penetration and gun handling.
That all changed in Patch 9.20. The T-44 got buffs to all those elements of the tank, and now I find it a quite good Tier 7 medium with snappier gun handling, fewer bounces, and the ability to at least occasionally bounce shots off the turret.
I think the T-44 is now a keeper, but don’t just take my word for it. Check out the review below by WoT YouTuber Aging Jedi.
