Sure, there's been plenty of hype surrounding the coveted Type 59, but the best possible recommendation for a tank always comes from your fellow tankers. If you're sitting on the fence about purchasing the Type 59 or just curious about whether it's a worthwhile addition to your Garage, then read on!
"Look, it’s mobile, it’s got enough gun to work with, it’s got Premium matchmaking, it’s strong enough to bounce a whole bunch of things, it makes Credits hand-over-fist... if you’re thinking of buying one I really can’t recommend it enough."
"On Himmelsdorf, this thing can book it, but on medium to soft terrain the speed it usually gets is around of that of the Centurion."
"I bounced a shot from the IS-6, so it can bounce the 122mm Russian guns that you see all too often."
"It does make quite a bit of Credits."
"Type 59, overall—really good tank platooned up."
"If you’re looking to pick a tier VIII Premium this is probably the one I’d recommend, especially if you do well in medium tanks."
"After nearly 150 battles and a close to a 65% win rate, I would say it's worth it. It's great to Platoon with and makes a ton of Credits. I think I am closing in on 3.5 million over the the last couple days."
"I thoroughly enjoy this little beast. Armor is pretty troll, and [it] prints decent Credits."
"It's refreshing to play a medium and actually make Credits at the same time!"
