Na, that isn't a Typo, 2-Pounder is best gun in War.

It's obviously a 20-pounder or 32-pounder, which is great. Maybe we can get that on FV201(A45) as well. :)

 

More importantly, it has 6mm less penetration on standard rounds and 280 alpha damage, as compared to 20pdr usuall only doing 230, but I think this is more likely a variant of the 32pdr.

 

Conway getting premium HESH looks good and -10 gun depression is amazing.

 

FV4005 changes look good but it would be nice to have the -7 depression and 180 turret from earlier tests.

Conway is going to be pretty hilarous. Almost a medium tank with 600 alpha gun? Yes pls.

 

Challenger is basically little shittier tier 7 med but with gun that is arguably better than average tier 8 medium...so it will be pretty good

 

FV4005 wont be still good but it can be quite hilarous now. Getting some positions quicker than ever before could be crucial for gwtting early HESH pens.

 

Yeaaaa definitely getting back to this line.

 

Also they finally seem to care about British tanks. I am amazed, but in positive way. GJ! :)

All it needs a 24 round Autoloader with 2 seconds per shot :trollface:

To be fair, there are british tank changes on ST/Sandbox pretty much every iteration, just no actual changes being implemented.

They addressed a lot of the line's issues right after I had finished eliting the Conway, which I guess was 1-1.5 years ago?

 

Anyways, I mentioned sandbox changes from a while back, I think it was the very first sandbox iteration and there were very nice changes for FV4005...

 

Now, at least, with gun stats, max speed and turret armor changes, the british medium line should become very desirable.

The idea behind these changes is to make the second line of TDs (more) viable. Please bear in mind that the actual stats are of course still subject to many changes, but you can expect the tanks to get a lot more mobile and flexible in the firing positions they can actually use.

 

This should also bring the Challenger more in line with the following vehicles and make the line more consistent overall.

Thanks, MrConway, love ye.

I was expecting you to make a comment about us posting ST stuff on forums before official announcements. :)

 

Can you confirm for us what that **-Pounder gun for the Challenger will be?

Can we expect some changes for tanks like FV201(A45) any time soon in this line of thought?

There is a thread about it if you haven't had the chance to see it...

A 20 pounder would make the Challenger more useful. But.... 20 pdr have 230 alpha. Not 280. Even the 32 pdr don't have that high "250". So...makes me wonder what it really is.  And 220 pen? 20 pdr on the AT-7 have 226 pen. So I guess it's a compensation for the alpha. But 280 damage?

 

And a 140mm gun on the Conway? With a turret that's mobile? Well.. and people thought the Skorpion was bad. Well I hope they don't keep the shell velocity historical on it.

Don't forget -10 depression. Maybe they're changing all 32-pounders to this damage value.

I'm still voting on the 2-Pounder Mk II getting a major buff, imagine the carnage from Tier 1 up :P

There's still absolutely no reason to grind that FV4005. Still remains the worst t10 tank by far. It would need insane level of buffs to compensate for that turret.

For once I'm glad that I have that thing researched, it could get interesting :justwait:

inb4 you have to grind the top gun with the 120mm

I play it for the lols. I've got it where I can reasonably get at least 6-7 shots in before I die horribly, as opposed to only shooting once, missing and dying horribly. :D

Well... considering the Churchill GC uses it to. More alpha would help.

What annoys me the most about this particular posted leak is that I have the text ready to post it myself and was just waiting for dem sexy graphics, you just beat me to it ;)

 

There is really not much I can say about other unannounced balancing changes that are coming, other that there are a lot of them. We're planning to look at most of the tanks at some point soon.

This makes me happy in my pantalones.

Also YES, 180 turret traverse and -10 on FV4005!!!
