Problems with low armored tanks:
1. Most of the hits do damage to them
2. The rest of the team loses HP pool and good players who like to play low armored tanks
3. Arty and HE shells can kill them easily

 

Solution?
Simple. Enhance armor on the lowest armored tanks!

Dont do this. At this rate all tanks will soon be same.

Actually WG needs reduce armor on tansk to their real stats and make angles work as they should.

I do think low armored tanks needs something to stop arty penning them. its wrong how you can still get 1 shot by a +2 tier arty from full HP. that should NOT happen.

 

Edit: id make all arty have 1mm pen so it can only splash.

Well I can agree on giving Scorpion 2x more armor. And buff it to 2mm.

 

But joking aside. Then buff LT with how much? The paper armor tanks trade armor for mobility etc. Just like the T26E4 traded mobility for armor. If you buff it, they should by logic get slower. Unless you want 150mm thick ELC's driving around? Or do you want the Borsig to have a 200mm turret shield? Because increasing it by 10mm, HE will still kill them.

Sure, make all the tanks the same. Impenetrable turret, -10 gun depression and great RoF. Give them all 750 alpha and there is no need for different tech tree lines anymore.

Spershing traded everything for armor with enough weak spots to be totally useless. i actually sniped the cupola of a SP 2 times in a row with the T-34-3 from a distance. its that useless.
