WG employees, why did you keep this tank Historical? It needs the A barrel 20 pounder badly. You like it more historical? Why don't you give the IS-3 it's historical gun, since we're taking a piss here? Russian manchild inferiority complex. I'm not a fan of NATO or Russia, but i sometimes have a feeling you belarussian f*cks are salty russian tanks got outperformed in every major war after WW2. Grow up.

No, the Tier 7 TD.

Now come on. Even as bad as the Challenger is, it's still better than the ARL V39 Tier-for-tier (though that's like having a golden trophy covered in crap and then comparing it to a slightly less crap-covered golden trophy). Even if the ARL V39 Can mount a 212mm pen gun at Tier VI, absolutely everything else about the tank still pulls it down enough to be worse than the Challenger.

You can't polish a turd but you can roll it in glitter ;) The ARL spanking paddle isn't that bad assuming you take the 100mm and load up the gold.

Oh come on, quit complaining challenger have 200mm of armor... at turret back.... 

You must be playing it wrong, rear of the turret should be always facing enemy... you have 200mm of armor there... bc logic...

Good topic, I enjoyed it.

This is how to write a proper whine.

 

It's the truth mixed with a witty jab at WG.

if I had a choice between either the challenger, or the AMX AC 46... id choose the challenger, because its actually still useable in the current meta, it can hide, and peek, the AC 46 cant do either, nor is its alpha very good for the reload time and accuracy that thing.. doesn't have :amazed:


 

out of both.. challenger every single time, even though I love the look of the AC 46....

challenger is a good tank

*doesn't grab popcorn, it actually was good at the time I was playing it, just after the buffs, idk how is it now in defender/patriot/chrysler/liberte era*

It's not the worst tank in the game. It's actually one of the better tier 7 lights in the game.. yes I said lights. As I farmed XP with assist vs damage when I played it. As it's a TD when top tier. And a scout in a tier 8/9 game. As most tier 8/9 tanks don't care to much about the 150 damage point with a crappy ROF you have when they cross an open field. It's worth taking those 2 hits to rape the team mate you can't help.

 

As pointed out above. I'll gladly play this over most French TD's.

I'd pick the Challenger over the AMX AC 46 tbh, simply because it has a turret and good gun handling/accuracy and it can move around the battlefield rather decently.

 

And as for buffs id rather see them reshuffle the 17-pounder guns so they can create a variety with more penn and alpha. I never got why people want to stick a 20-pounder in the challenger since that gun is outside the timeframe of the challenger (post WW2 gun on a WW2 tank) and i seriously doubt the gun can fir inside that narrow hole the 17-pounder sticks through.

Pizza Calzone!

 

My home town used to have a place where you could get one. Sadly gone now :( last I looked there was some Japanese joint where it used to be. Pivot to Asia and all that I guess....

ACtually, the AC gave me my first Radley Walther's medal. The CHallenger just gave me a headache.

You can actually polish a turd. :P

 

 

And yes, the Soviet bias is a bit annoying.

But here's the thing, the current Challenger isn't historical. The Avenger (elite) turret was mounted IRL on a Comet chassis:

Spoiler

So yeah, reason why you can't mount a 20 pounder: Its a free exp sink tank, in a line of free exp sink tanks...

This is by far the most epic post I saw in the last months.

ARL is pretty fun to play with the AC DCA and the 105

I still don't have the Avenger turret!
