  1. The intra-gun switch is quite bad, but the other buffs are good.

    However, I fear this tank will be featured in the next Trading Caravan event (last year it was Kirovets-1 IIRC).

    1. another problem is it has meh double shot alpha, its the same reason they made 2 versions of obj 703. 100mm and 122mm.

  2. So they want to make a double-barreled tank that will always go for salvo whenever it sees a target.
    Fair enough, the tank has close-to-impenetrable turret, even stronger than T-32’s turret with -8 gun depression and very decent gun handling.
    I would even say good gun handling since you will put a Bounty Aiming instead of V.Stab on it because the tank has very good aiming speed + 2s salvo preparation anyway.
    With Turbo, it goes at 40/-18, 0.3 accuracy and 1.7k HP.
    Looks like a very good HT already, just like the T-832. Strong turret + reliable gun & decent mobility.
    Based on how the Obj. 703 II which is a faster tank that has more alpha but much worse accuracy and poor gun depression, is performing, this TS-54 will probably stay very close to its Russian counterpart or a bit higher. It will have less shitty games and less huge games as well, or should I say it will be more consistent.

    1. This turret is worse than T32’s. Nominal thickness is slightly better, but the scopes on both sides of the mantlet are poorly armored and no amount of hulldown can hide them.

      1. Ignore the mongoloid they play a totally different game.
        We know this from the ridiculous comments about “shit” tanks or “op” tanks that are totally incorrect

      2. Fair enough, I missed those weakspots but still, they won’t make a big difference if any. Those weakspots are small and it’s hard to exploit even at close range. As long as you don’t stay still for shit enough amount of time to let them have an RNG trial, nobody’s gonna be hitting that even semi-reliably.
        And if you underestimate that extra 12mm mantlet then let me remind you that T-32/T-832’s turret can be pen straight in the face by a lot of tier 9/10 tanks.
        Still, having those weakspots will decrease the overall performance of the tank a little bit.
