(I know size does not matter, my wife tells me all the time.)

But ingame size matter allot.

Hey WG: Why do we get an shrunk Panther instead of a historical correct Leopard?

 

What are your thoughts?

I have no idea what you are showing here. Tank sizes look OK to me. Sorry if I dont see the obvious!

Have a look at the humans on the pic, then try to compare the, i.e. the height of engine deck and the overall heigth.

IMO the Leo is to high (and to wide).

 

Or even better ingame, take a Leopard and drive next to an IS-2 you will most likely wonder what has gone wrong.

It's easy to see if you compare the Luchs to the Leo, in comparison the Leo is a very fat little lady indeed (and not so little). But her pert fuel tanks mean I'll forgive her most anything :-)

More like guessing game during implementation and too little time to change anything later, at least I would guess that could be the line Storm could use when asked about it...

It had been rebalanced in the past.

The rebalancing brought more "agility" and larger size. (I guess that what happens when you take steriods.)

Some time later WG improved the model, but forgort resizing it.

Agree with Azakow. So far, Leopard size gave me many headaches: too easy to hit, as big as a soviet heavy. 

 

Would be nice if WG were going to resize the Leo. BTW, would be too much to ask WG for a reload buff in the 30 mm gun? 10 secs or so. Come on!! This tank can not snipe and has only 95 pen...

 

Pleaaaaase :justwait:
