  1. Well, if you have the credits, hold on to it for next patch. Getting rather good armour buffs.
  2. Yup, and prior to the 32 pounder being buffed, the 3.7" howitzer did 280 damage with heat rounds, while the high velocity 32 pounder (also 3.7") only did 240 damage.
  3. Changes to All British AT series tanks AT 2 gets pretty gutted loosing a fair bit of armour across the front of the tank AT 8 is capable of being an assault tank now. Frontal weakspots are gone (unless you consider 152mm a weakspot), with the 76mm by the 20mm gun being buffed to 203mm. AT 7 Weakspots are buffed, overall should be better, but not night and day like the AT-8 AT 15 sees buffs to the UFP (it's now 139.7mm) and there is no gun weakspot as the hole behind the mantlet was removed (unless you have 250-275mm of pen you aren't going through it) Some improvements to the miniturrets and cupolas. Tortoise... Just everything was thickened. Will stand up to tier 10 standard rounds fairly well, but most importantly, the roof is now 57mm (was 25mm). It will no longer be autopenetrated by 76mm+ guns. FV205/FV217 still not available for viewing yet.
  4. The models are up on 3dgamemodels Tier 8 Tier 9 Tier 10 ELC EVEN 90, Recon Panther and Caernarvon Action X were added to supertest as well
  5. Damage is completely arbitrary and caliber is only one possible thing to consider when selecting damage for a shell, they could have considered.
  6. Oh boy, another 750 alpha TD! Just what we need! While the Su-122-54 and Su-101 could probably see a little love, there is nothing so wrong about the object 263 to warrant replacing it.
  7. Depression isn't thing I really wish they didn't handwave away, because of the physical effect on the design of tanks. Tanks like the STRV 74 had such a big forehead because that's what was required for 15 degress of gun depression with that gun. It really gets into fantasy tanks, and not in the manner of something which only existed on paper, but entirely made up.
  8. It really should have a turret roof like the T25/2 where it is spaced armour, not part of the hitbox. The little bit of armour that goes up to the roof piece is actually fabric IRL.
  9. I think giving it 10 degrees gun depression AND fv215b dpm was what tipped it over.
  10. It gets armour buffs, but it is less than what were planned. 200mm where it was 240mm, and for the cheeks, they are 140mm instead of 165mm. Forehead is 80mm now (don't know what it was with the buffs though)
  11. Was designed to be a light self-propelled/assault gun, not a light tank role.
  12. Man this thing sucks now.
  13. Leaked Patch notes for patch 9.22 FV4202 re-designated a light tank. Top speed increased to 65km/h Receives 910bhp engine.
  14. And yet another tank get 10 degrees. Not that I'm against buffs, but good lord these changes are making things seem very cookie cutter. Dispersion on hull movement reduced by 25% (0.16 to 0.12, FV215b is currently 0.08) Dispersion on hull rotation reduced by 20% (0.1 to 0.08, FV215b is currently 0.1) Dispersion on turret rotation reduced by 29% (0.14 to 0.1, FV215b is currently 0.08) Reload time decrease from 9.3 to 8.7s (FV215b is 8.7s currently) Health buffed from 2350 to 2400 (FV215b is 2500) With the buffs to gun handling, it's within spitting distance of the FV215b's, and now it has the same fire rate too. It may just end up being a better FV215b.
  15. On thing which would help the A45 a great deal is if they gave it 10 degrees gun depression across the entire front instead of the 8 it currently has. IRL it was only 8 over the machine gun blister, while the rest was 10.
