As I was reading the supertest patch notes for 10.0 this cought my attention: - Replaced the top (2nd) turret of the Caernarvon U.K. heavy tank with the turret of the Centurion Action X- Replaced the standard (1st) turret of the Conqueror U.K. heavy tank with the turret of the Centurion Action XAm I right in thinking that the Action X Centurions turret I'd far, FAR better than the top Caernarvon and stock Conqurer turret? Does that mean that hull down can once again be viable in some situations, because as of now anyone can lol pen the turret front of the Caernarvon ans stick Conqueror... WG have also stated in a Q&A that this change "Is flat out a WG fake." However, they explain that at the moment, there is no other way to buff these tanks without doing this. Also, since these tanks were paper projects, they are bending their "historical accuracy" rule for armour to try and make these tanks competitive. What do you guys think? Good sensible move by WG or will these tanks still be meh (Caernarvon) to Stronk once upgraded (Conqueror)?
First match in IS-7, Westfield. One of the reasons i lost was that I was engaging an E100 on the hills, we were both hulldown. I put about 4-5 shots, some premium into the flat turret cheeks, but no pens. This took up time I could have used to kill other tanks, therefore we lost. Now, with my over 300 premium pen, I should be able to pen the turret-cheeks of E100, shouldn't I? Should I instead have aimed for the weaker armor on the bar on top of the turret, with a higher risk of missing?
