This is the thread about the british tier II tank Cruiser Mk. I (like the topic already says). A really ugly but actually fun to play tank with a strange issue regarding the tech tree. Its stock gun QF 2-pdr Mk. IX seems to be much better than the researchable 40 mm Pom Pom so I ask myself, was it added like this accidentally, or is there something about the PomPom you cannot recognize by comparing the statistic sheet?

Two shot auto cannon, so that's the reason for the strange name  :Smile_Default:

edit: shouldn't it be named Pom Pom Pom Pom? Mine shoots four times, reload time is not bad, penetration however...  :Smile_sceptic:

Ah, thanks for the info! I was wondering why the stats of the Pom pom were worse. I didn't want to try it out, since I can't be bothered to spend 20k at this moment, since I'm gathering money and exp for the Lorraine 40 t for next weekend.
I'll try the Pom pom another time. :)

Right, I got the Mastery Badge on this odd-looking fellow in my 3rd battle, 2nd with the Pom Pom, so it is not useless. However, when looking at the other branch of the British tech tree that will lead to the heavies, you just wonder why the Cruiser branch is there at all: The A13 Mk I is faster, has "better" armour, better turn speed, the same guns. The only difference are 20 points of structure in favour of the Cruiser. As any salvo from a machine gun will still slam the Cruiser despite these extra hit points, I truly wondered what its purpose is.

I am still wondering, but am still driving it, while I ditched the A13 and have now reached the Covenanter on the other branch. I have also got to the A10 on the Cruiser line and am pwning with the troll gun.  :Smile-playing:

Vickers did have an interesting gun design for the Valentine in 1938 which would have made more sense, an automatic 40mm firing the same round as the 2pdr gun.
