Wat.

 

  • Added engine Rolls-Royce Griffon. The basic TTX of the engine is as follows:
    • power 950 hp (the old engine had 650 HP, almost 50% increase and Shitbarn is not even super slow either currently)
    • chance of fire 20%
  • Removed the engine Rolls-Royce Meteor Mk. IVB
  • The spread of the 183 mm L4 gun during the rotation of the FV4005 Stage II tower is reduced by 12%
  • The speed of the rotation of the FV4005 Stage II is changed from 12 deg / sec to 16 deg / sec
  • Angle of declination of the gun 183 mm L4 in the tower FV4005 Stage II changed from -5 degrees to -10 degrees
  • The horizontal guidance points of the 183 mm L4 gun in the FV4005 Stage II tower are changed from 45 degrees to 90 degrees in both directions
  • The ammunition of the 183 mm L4 gun in the FV4005 Stage II turret was changed from 12 to 20 rounds
  • The maximum forward speed has been changed from 35 km / h to 50 km / h
  • The maximum travel speed has been changed from 12 km / h to 15 km / h

 

So among with the buffs announced before, it also gets the Conway engine (almost 50% horse power buff!) and more ammo. Its literally a medium tank with 1750 alpha gun now.

 

Imagine someone yoloing you with this like you got yoloed by T49s/Sheridans, expect this will now pen you for 1750 no matter what you are from butt.

 

What I can say?

 

...I want one now :trollface:

Deserved buffs. Somehow not mentioned anything about the nerfs. Hope they are not going to get implemented...

This is what it should have been from day one. As this is what I expected when they announced the turreted line, saying this was a faster, more mobile 183. And tuned out the mobility trade was so crap, it was not worth the armor loss the buffed 183 had when they gave it more turret armor etc.

 

I'm still on the tier 9. But I suspect it will be my next tier 9 grind with these changes.

Tier 10 is already so unbalanced this is just cherry on top.

Don't mind me, I'm just casually strolling down 50km/h with 183mm gun. Murazor please.

OP you clearly have not played that tank at all if you think those buffs are going to make it OP.

It still wont have any armor and once you are spotted all guns turn to you.

You need to have brains to play that tank and get any kind of result that can be considered good.

And if seen dead before you can even point your gun at anyone.

I'm actually really interested in tier 9. Apparently it gets HESH as gold ammo with increased damage. Might be really interesting...

It's still a BIG bloody HE magnet. I would love to see people driving across the field at 50km/h and surviving after being spotted. One of the easiest tanks to deal with it...

What nerfs?

 

This tank is a one trick pony, at least the 183 can take some shots and be part of a push. This one can't even sit in a bush with that gigantic turret, and even the -10 gun depression won't help it a whole lot, just look at the placement of that gun...you're gonna get shot before you put it to use.

Well sure, but if are not in the open, you won't take 5 hits in the time it takes you to traverse and reverse back into cover.

Was referring to OPs crazy ideas of just casually driving along and hitting targets left and right :)
