MrConway, can you please confirm for us what 180 means in the case of the FV4005 Stage II?

Does it mean 90 degrees to each side or does it mean fully traversible turret?

 

180 to each side, so a full turret

Supertest 9.20: Chinese Premium Medium Tanks Changes

 

I really think this would have been nice and welcome buffs. No idea why decreasing the aimtime from 3,4 to 2,9 didn't make it to the new update?! Maybe the T34-3 would have become too OP while aiming for a weakspot with 175 AP?! Don't get me wrong, I can live with 175 AP, but a HD model and faster aiming time would help this tank for sure in the current meta.

 

Also the buffs for Patton and Type 59 should have been implemented.

 

My 50 cents

Even more armour inflation, just what this game needed.......oh wait.......It actually needed viable weakspots for same tier AP(CR) ammo........oh well....

Atleast they didnt buff the LFP, its still very reliable weakspot on all of these tanks against pretty much every single tank they can face, and side armor is also weak on these 3. Could have been worse.

Will most likely have its own branch (2nd HT) line. Makes sense because the tank really isnt related to the development of the tanks of current HT line. It is more related to Centurions than Conqueror; both conceptually and play-style wise (better gun than Centurions and stronger turret (even after Cent buffs) but slower).

Yes, finally! I agree with everying in regard to tiers 8 - 10!

 

Caernarvon finally gets a good gun and turret, Conqueror no longer has an awful chassis and looks hella cool.

 

Good, now, what do we do about the Chieftain and FV201(A45)? :)

To be perfectly honest, Super Conqueror looks much more interesting than Chieftain.

So Caernarvon is basically a poor mans T32 now, in every metric.... nice to know its still useless trash.

But what is it? Is it the turret Dave Lister dug up from the archives?

 

Basically Conqueror with spaced armor plates added on UFP and sides combined with the "Super Conqueror" turret.

Still better than what it is now, though that doesnt say too much. Also IIRC the mobility nerf is not significant.

 

Caern has ok penetration unlike T32 and probably better accuracy so there is that. T32's gun is absolutely horrible in current meta.

There are no official images of the Super Conq yet so I won't spoil it too much, but the turret is quite unique.

I can't say it looks anything like Dave Lister's archive find. I have read the original document that lists the added armor etc. but nothing was mentioned of a new turret for wartime Conquerors.

 

EDIT: Yeah, it's Listy's turret.

So now it'll only be below average?

Having looked at the Super Conqueror turret again, yeah, it's definitely Listy's turret. It has the same commander's cupola and the round barrel on the left side. It was about time though, that was...3 years ago.

Oh I see. I just hope the turret will actually be useful and not filled with weakspots :unsure:

The turret looks ok when hulldown. There is cupola but its literally pixel sized weakspot when hulldown. Without hulldown tho turret looks vulnerable to HEAT spam

 

The armor is not the best thing about the Chieftain tho, but the insane gun instead. It would be utterly broken as hell if the turret was immune combined with that gun.

Dear WG staff,

 

Please,make every tier X tank to have something unique (good example:German tier X light tank Rhm. Pzw has that interesting gun handling mechanism,or Swedish Strv 103B with 2 different modes).Adding armor to every tier X heavy won't do a trick.For example,years ago I heard about ST-II: a new tier X Russian heavy tank with 2 guns!I think it was a good idea just you needed to balance it carefully:playing:.Leave Type 5 heavy with intimidating armor but remove that HE gun,make this tank mostly useless at damage dealing but great at taking damage.Same thing with Maus:great:.Let's talk about Sheridan.This beast is a tricky ones because this tank shoots with rockets,not HE rounds:facepalm:.You should add a new ammunition type for it.I understand that all these things I said are hard to complete but it's possible.:izmena:There are even more interesting and crazy thoughts in my head,sadly I am going out of time:(.
