first game in new buffed STB. holy shit they fixed pretty much all the problems I had with its rework. the increased side depression means you dont have to play front on only any more, and the buffed speed that the suspension stays active means you aren't constantly switching in and out of the suspension when rolling around on flanks and the annoying hiccup that happens when trying to aim down and activating the suspension is gone as well.
I cant believe WG did something right for once.

Yeah they buffed the depression when out of siege mode from -6 to -8, and buffed the top speed that siege mode is active in from 20-30kph.
Still didn't buff the side armour, or the driver compartment.
If they gave 45mm to Type 61 so its no longer over-match by 122 caliber, the least they can do is provide it to STB1 too, which is a tier above and the successor. It makes sense. AMX TVP Leopard need this buff too, 45mm is not alot of armour to ask for, yet it is enough to stop alot of shit that otherwise ruins your day. Like how progetto has fifty mm in the front.
I have never played the STB and thought it would bounce shots though. yeah sure a buff would be nice but it wouldn't really do anything because the front hull is paper anyway
