Given my complete and utter inability to play non-turreted TDs, I'm going straight for the Hellcat and up. However, what about the Jackson? 

 

Is it actually good? Is it worth grabbing even if I won't be pursuing that line any further any time soon?

It's substantially less fun; slower, bigger, slower turret traverse. A bit more armour, though. Most annoying when you play it by accident...

I've seen some around, i don't have the tank but i can say it has some good frontal armor, however hull sides and turret sides (and rear obv) are so weak that can be pennable by ANY kind of HE shell.

Good rate of fire and gun.

Hellcat for the speed, Jackson for the DPM.  Both have the same gun, but the Jackson fires 2 extra shots per minute.

 

Hellcat runs away after shooting, Jackson is much slower but has less need to run thanks to 450 more DPM.

Bouncy hull, 50% more ammo capacity than the Hellcat, mobile enough. Good tank. Legendary camo is authentic Taiwanese.

It's good, but why pursue a dead end if you don't mean to grind that line? Get the T25/2 instead. 

i guess you're bothering with TDs because you need to acquire the crew skill? T30 is a very good tank for the purpose.

Not quite. I'm bothering with turreted TDs because I find them enjoyable; ok - let's face it - I'm playing them like I would a tank, whether a paper one, or a heavium depends on the TD in question.

I was unaware of the DPM discrepancy, thanks for that. I thought it was just Hellcat all the way; I might end up getting both now. :)
