D25, buff one gun, buff all guns

Ammo swap like IS-5 would work, without buffing all the D25Ts

Or you know... Just balance it by what the tank has to fight against and not care about that garbage.

I thought they have mentioned about technical limitations. Same gun from the same nation cannot carry different ammo set, Chinese TAs are 175 AP, Rusha's are 221 CR. So they have to change the gun completely or it will buff 112 as well. IS-6 however is different, carry unique gun.

but we already have the wz-120 stock grind. 

Which can be almost entirely circumvented by researching the 113 first. Just chuck 23500 free exp at the turret and you are golden.

They can just slap the letter A behind a gun's name and make it "different". They did it for IS-5, and they did it for Chrysler K.

That would be more sensible than armor buff but WG and sense doesn’t come together.

A pen buff would be pointless, the only way it would be useful is if it was at least 212, but they are not going to buff a limited MM medium to 212 pen.  Anything sub 210 on tier 8 is basically pointless, whatever you pen will probably be penned by 175 (especially with 122 overmatch ability), 210-220 lets you pen IS3 hulls, Tiger 2 LFPs, O-Hos etc. and at least challenge Chrysler/Defender LFP if they are flat on.  Anything on tier 8 with 170-200 pen might as well have the same pen, you'll need premium rounds for most tier 8 heavies. 

They are not going to jump the 122s up to like 200 pen. Nor do they really need it, just the Russian ones need a useful premium round.  All the Chinese ones have 250 HEAT to use, so they are fine with that. Bully soft stuff and lower tier stuff, get your HEAT out for the IS3s and Chryslers. 

The armour buff makes sense to me because this tank is a brawling medium, but currently has a fairly weak turret for a dome turret, a lower plate you only need 90mm to go through and 50mm sides which meant a slight overangling mistake and you'd get screwed whilst sidescraping. With these changes the T-34-3 will be able to brawl away much better. 

Also the T-34-2 is just a free XP sink, doubt they will ever change it.
