British TD changes

I just wondering what's their plan for the FV. In the first Testserver version it was kind clear. FV is the tank if you want much better gun handling and dpm. Now this advantages are out of the window. S.Conq has now the same dpm and pretty much the same gun stats. FV became totally obsolete.

The average user is not going to have a choice between the two tanks. Making the Superconq close to the current FV in terms of niche, is a sensible choice and also gives it distinguishing features to other T10 heavies. E5 gets better armor and mobility, Superconq gets the better gun.

Honestly WG is just throwing stuff left and right not really knowing what they are doing.

E5 gets better armor ?? Not really tbh with it's huge and weak cupola now. Added to that the SC has -10 vs -8 of the E5.

Sad that they didn't go through with 50 km/h top speed on Conbae :(

Along the HD maps they are updating the 4005 model with a new integrated radio antenna.

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.

good changes. It was absolutely maddening how the Tortoises armor was worse than the AT-15 and AT-15A

Some of these just got really annoying to fight. And all the low pen tanks in the game just got worse again. Creep creep creep.

Kind of sad to see the AT2 get nerfed so hard. Given its mobility or lack thereof, it’s going to really struggle. If they really wanted to nerf it then in my mind it would have been better to reduce the gun accuracy and soft stats. That way you encourage people to play it as an assault TD which is the very definition of this lines characteristics. By nerfing armour you will get people just camping in it even more than TD drivers tend to at the moment.

Conveniently the flat parts of their armor still just don't have enough to bounce gold rounds.

AT-8 is overbuffed, the rest are fine.

These tanks are slow, turretless TDs with guns on par or worse than most heavies on their tier, they rely on DPM to do their damage so need to be exposed for a long time. They should be difficult to pen from the front but obviously still need a viable weakspot.

@Fabunil Torty and AT-15 can angle a lot because of gun arcs, so they might be better, especially when using corners. That flat bit on the Torty is over 270, it's currently 228 and with full gun arc you can make it 245, so you might be able to make that area over 300.

Trtoise :

Entire front became stronger. The roof is now 57.2 mm thick so it is no longer overmatchable except for the biggest guns in the game.

The roof is no longer 25.4mm. They buff it after i will be done with this POS.
