"An unusual specimen of the medium tank class due to its lack of a turret. As a result, the playstyle is similar to that of tank destroyers."

 

"lack of a turret" : actually, there is one (duh). seems you're referring to the gameplay (or your multiple-guns/turrets implementing-inabilities ;) ;)

Nice with more tanks :) 

 

But... when is the swedish tank tree comming?! 

The research is already done.

 

Just do it ;)

Looking forward to these a lot since I simply can't be asked to grind the whole like of British T95's after the AT-2 (which is a great tank).

With World of Goldammo now and the massive weakspots they have all that armour is pretty much useless.

 

So what you are left with is a painfully slow, occasionally armoured XP pinata and arty magnet.

That part of the advantages of the Achilles , where it is said " excellent penetration with gold ammo " - the person who wrote it, isnt very smart i presume.

You chose the ugliest version of the Firefly, really? Why not the most used one with M4A4 Chassis?

Such disappointment, Many sad, Wow.

:trollface: another british line that i won't play...

I dont quite understand why WG makes new city maps and this line of tds without armor which obviously doesen't feel right to play on city maps ... it's just wrong management i think...

Anyone sane has some prem ammo anyway, which they use for those bad bad times. It is an universal truth, so why not actually say it? It`s not such a great secret for already existing tanks, so why not say it?

 

You know, excluding "purists", there is no sane reason not to use prem ammo, when it is easy to assume it WILL be used against you. A kill is a kill and a shot is a shot - and if you die to my prem ammo, who`s the noob? Me, or the dead that couldn`t hull down / side scrape / angle / peek-a-boo / etc?

I thought about starting the brit meds but as always when there 's rumours concerning new tanks I wait and go after them instead...

WG didn't repeat the chinese mistake again except with the Japs which were not so appealing.

I just wonder how you choose which tank is a TD and which is a medium for instance.

 

T67 for example is very fast, has paper armor, not too many HP and a turret but it's a TD. Grant I is slow, goor armor for it's tier, no turret, large size and it's a medium.

I definitely want to try this new med branch... but I wonder if it will merge into centurion branch after Firefly or it will have it own branch? After experiencing the paper armor Jap tanks I hope this one can rival the russian meds.

The new TD branch look interesting tho... kinda like a little brother of german turreted TDs. I hope this is going to be better than the slow-[edited]target practice AT line
