A few updates ago, the penetration of pershing and superpershing was buffed from 181mm to 190mm. However T69 and T95e2 still have 181mm of penetration, I think they really need a penetration buff to stay competitive against other tier 8 medium tanks. Do you agree with me ?

(Sorry if my english is approximative because I'm french :P )

If it follows the same trend as the Pershing, I'm fine with it.

 

What I hate with passion on the T69 is the post-firing bloom. With equipment, I have to wait 3 seconds before to shoot again or nothing will hit at 100m. Meanwhile, in the Lorraine 40t with the same equipment, I can just hold le LMB and it will work decently at 250m. With that wonderful pen as a bonus.

The T95E2 definitely needs a penetration buff. Ideally, I would want it to be a T95E1 ... but probably won't happen.

Still, same gun as 59-Patton, and that gets 212 pen.

 

Actually, the 59-Patton gets the M41, whereas the T95E2 has a M41E1...it should be better.

Every tank that has less than 200 pen in the higher tiers needs a boost nowadays.

They need an everything buff, like most T8 meds.

Yeah that's not happening. Though that said. Pen is not my issue with the T69. It's already been buffed. As it was 173 before. For the role it has, and for my style in it at least. Pen is more then good enough. I have issues with the gun handling on medium to long range.

 

On the T95E2 on the other hand. That really needs to get close to 200. Or at least on pair with the other US mediums at 192 area.

The poor 69, let the lorr 40t have the pen but give the t69 the better gun handling and intra clip reload, match the mobility of the lorr. It's a pity they've not looked at these aspects when doing the other med changes for 9.20 and just done a pure HD model - we are being punished for the sins of donald

the mobility does need some help there... like i said is one previous thread, a defender was pushing my T69 in one battle.. and i have a 3 skills crew in it..
