  1. They could at least give the Sheridan an APCR gold round; http://sturgeonshouse.ipbhost.com/index.php?/topic/694-the-armored-warfare-disappointment-thread/#entry19265 Supposedly about 250mm of pen at 2000m.
  2. That RoF seems a bit disappointing for such low alpha, though I'm on phone so I can't actually compare it to other tier 10's dpm.
  3. https://eddb.io/station Punch in the ship and the system you're currently at.
  4. According to @Renhanxue, the standard round is HEAT, and it's probably gonna get rebalanced before it goes live.
  5. Crossposting from the general Swedish thread; 15 depression, 150 damage with 115/144 pen, seems decent. Mobility looks bad though.

    Strv m/42

    The Strv m/42 will be the tier 5 medium tank in the Swedish tech tree. It's going to be entering a pretty crowded field, there's a lot of tier 5 mediums, including some pretty good ones like the M7, M4, and T-34 (along with some pretty lame ones). Here's what its armor layout looked like historically; (originally posted by sp15 on WoT EU) It's not that special, you're not going to be bouncing much besides tier 3s and autobounce stuff. At least its a fairly narrow target. The historical gun was the 75mm m/41 L34. In real life it was about equal to the 75mm M3 on the Sherman, but it was somewhat handicapped by bad ammo. Given that the m/42 doesn't have amazing armor or mobility (380 hp / 22 tons = 16.9 hp per ton, which actually isn't terrible), there's probably going to be some options for gun upgrades. Historically, a high velocity 57mm and a short 105 were considered, and I think I remember reading about some upgrades to the 75 (aside from the one that eventually ended up being the Strv 74). Gun depression will be amazing though, like everything else in the Swedish tree. Without knowing too much about it, the m/42 looks to me like it will be pretty decent but not a standout like the M7. Historical Info; http://tanks.mod16.org/tag/strv-m42/- Swedish Tank Archives pages on Strv m/42 (renhanxue's page) http://ftr.wot-news....t-vii-strv-m42/- Article on Strv m/42 in World of Tanks video game, written by sp15, has useful info http://www2.landskro...agnar/lago.html http://sturgeonshouse.ipbhost.com/index.php?/topic/11-stug-iii-thread-and-also-other-german-vehicles-i-guess/page-6#entry15542; Early m/42s had German transmissions. They were really bad. Bonus pics: (pics by renhanxue)
