Does the nearly doubly expensive before accounting for tech costs Jackson fall under tight or medium tanks? Asking for a friend?
I've killed every single allied vehicle with a micored and supported puma so the player you quited's statement holds true. It's vet 1 locks turrets on turreted vehicles, stuns assault guns and engine damages lights for the love of God (not to mention forces crew weapon s to pack up and redeploy)
Its the ultimate support vehicle of you have what it takes to micro it. Avoid pebbles for best results (cause there is no way in hell it is getting heavy crush)
Ofc it the Jackson cost more, but by god it has all the advantages associated with a TD with nearly no disadvantage.
SU-85, Stug, JpzIV - Turretless is enough of a disadvantage
M10 - Turreted but somewhat "weak" (since 80 fuel TD)
Firefly - Turreted but turret rotates slowly, not awfully fast either and on the move acc is quite poor
Jackson - Good range, exceptional speed, fast rotating turret, good on the move acc, good penetration - Pretty much the perfect TD
Puma (included since "technically a TD anyway") - Good range, exception speed but no crush so pebbles can fuck you, kinda poor turret traverse and poor on the move acc. Cheapest and available earliest
SU-76 - "its something )))"
