I got a S-51 with the recent sale too. I'd be interested in any tips you have on using it from your recent experience.
I'm somewhat of an arty newb and have only played maybe a few dozen games with tier 2 T57 and Buffalo when I first started WOT (my friend who introduced me to WOT loved playing them). I enjoyed the support role that arty did, but then got sucked into playing tank destroyers and normal tanks and haven't had the time to go back. This S-51 sale lets me jump back in at the medium tier level (branching off of the KV-2) without having played anything but tier 2 arty before so my arty skills are probably going to be lacking.
Also, I'm curious if you added any equipment like a rammer or gun laying drive? The load and aim time both sound so slow that it doesn't sound like cutting a little bit off of it would be a big payoff. I'm currently credit poor and tired of grinding for more after pushing to earn the IS-4 (before the 7.3 patch).
B-4 can only carry 12 shells, which in most cases is enough thanks to the low rate of fire.
I think I'm buying the S-51 tonight/tomorrow. Haven't played any arty since a few rounds @ Tier2, so looking for something different.
