Thanks the Harkonens awesome blog there is info about new UK tier VIII HT - Caernarvon AX:

Caernarvon AX

I would call this one as "long expected premium tank" after scores of soviets :bajan: (yet I still fell like there is bit too many premiums lately)

Stats are linked above - no point to just copy here.

 

Those HEAT shields seems to be nice new UK thingy. And as always - we cant miss opportunity to have another tank with 20 pdr :justwait:

A bit pity UK hasnt got its HT in Defender/Liberte/Patriot era, but Im damn glad that era apparently ended and this one seems still somehow solid and/or usable (and there is always space to buff it 10x like FV4202 :trollface:  )

Still better than "iconic" 17pdr :child: But ... yeah ... I would like to argue, but I rly cant.

Doubt it, to little to make it stand out against new buffed Cearn.

tbh the only issue I had with the 20 pounder on the Caern was the utter abysmal DPM, this thing gets 2.3k base so if it has the same gun handling I'd imagine it to be pretty nice.

The thing I'm worried about with this Caern is how its completely inferior to the buffed tech tree Caern on test, so I hope WG goes with the option of nerfing the 9.20.01 Caern than overbuffing this one

The only problem I have with 20 pounder is how bloody expensive the ammo is.

That is true, somewhat.

Almost everything is at least fine with it, can't really see a problem.

  It is inferior as it should be, pay to win got out of hand for the past year. Hope they leave the buffed Cearn alone, I will rebuy that one.

So? Let me guess, OP prem is OK as long as it is British? This looks solid enough, depending on mobility it might be better then regular tier 8 tanks already.

Well, duh, because reasons. But at least this shows why WG does not want nor need to listen to people on the forums, screw game balance, I want my 'nation' to have the best tonks...
