New American heavies

The American experimental heavy tank line leading to M-VI-Yoh was introduced in update 8.0:

Tier VII - M-III-Yoh

The tier VII stats M-VII-Yoh felt a good tank, but it seems to have performed pretty poorly on average.

Tier VIII - M-III-Yoh

The tier VIII stats M-III-Yoh was introduced as a very balanced tank. In other words it is performing below-average for a heavy tank. I found the tank pretty decent.

Tier IX - M-V-Yoh

The tier IX stats M-V-Yoh was not so fun tank to play due to its enormous reload time. It performed bit below average.

Tier X - M-VI-Yoh

The tier X stats M-VI-Yoh continues the pattern and performed below average. I liked the tank, but I have been fairing pretty poorly with it. I like the dual-shot gun more due to its unique characteristics, but the three-shot autoloader has far better DPM and seems to perform better. WG could give the dual-shot gun bit shorter magazine reload to make it more competitive. There is already T57 Heavy Tank so playing the three-shot gun feels bit “meh” (IMO) - even it performs better.

If you have seen the M-VI-Yoh performing well on the battlefield, it is probably since it has been driven by better than average players:
