Bofors used on an cavalry archer type of gameplay - shooting at full speed, circling and avoiding shots.

I just like the Howitzer, it´s a weak gun, but it shoots in a very, very ballistic way, which makes it very interesting - getting out of cover, activating autoaim, sneaking back into cover and shooting your target across (quite large) obstacles; wish the other howitzers would drop their shells as low - no difference at short range, and the benefit of shooting out of cover is offset by the long shell flight time.
Anyway, I´m sure it´s not the best gun, but I like the 3 inch ... :Smile-playing:

But the howitzer makes it incredibly difficult to hit anything moving as fast as a tortoise, since youll aim somewhere on the landscape everytime you attempt to lead your target and your shot will attempt to hit the landscape and leap over the tank you intended to hit.

true dat, but it would still be an awesome gun if it delivered some more damage - at some maps you can actually shoot over the trains!

Personally I hate everything Pompom/bofor ish. They annoy my head. Crap accuracy, that forces you to to get close. Not good with no armour.
I wouldn't use the 3", as compared to the 3.7 on the T3, it is pants.
Which leaves the 2pdr. Which is accurate, has good PEN, and a near MG rate of fire. This is what I used.

I prefer the Mk. X, though I understand why people like the pom pom and the bofors, they just don't fit my play style. If you want to play a support role then use the 2pdr and shoot from the second rank or the flanks, if you want to play at knife fight range get the pom pom or bofors and do hit-and-run attacks.

2pdr is best for securing a win

bofors is the most fun unless you hit the top range of your MM

None of the above as they all feel woefully inadequate imo.
And as far as I know all of the main ones you can get on the tank below so it makes them pointless on this one.

The 2lber is the best alrounder, no wasted shots and no range limit, best pen' of the lot too, did try the automatics but ultimately stuck with the Mk X, and used the little 3" derp for fun, landing a rainbow arced dollop of pain on a camper from across the map is very satisfying.

well the pom pom is just an inferior bofors and the howitzer is pretty awful so its between the bofors and the 2pdr.  at that point its down to how you play the tank.
