Hello 

 

Does anyone have idea if the changes to british tank destroyers in the comming patch affect the AT15A premium ?

I haven't heard anything about it, so I doubt it, as it is not a regular tank.

just compared it and there no changes to the AT-15A, but to be honest its the least terrible AT tank in the game so there ya go. honestly tho i feel WG didnt do anything usefull to the line. they did fix the armor profile of the AT 8 but who cares realy and the tortoise got a armor buff. i much rather would have seen some speed buffs to the line 20km/h simply doesnt cut it on a turretless platform with weedy guns.

 

here is a comparisong for the AT 8 for anyone who cares

Thank you for contacting Wargaming Customer Support.

It seems that the changes are going to be applied to all non-turreted British tank destroyers but still we haven't got any information whether this includes accurately AT15A or not.

Much success on the battlefield!

Why should it? The AT-15A got more armor vs the AT-15 on some areas. And going by tank.gg It will be stronger on most areas still vs the tier 8 even after the buffs. As the tier 7 can't be armor nerfed as it's a premium. If anything the AT-15A buffs should have affected the AT-15 when they got their HD model.

 

The only thing that will be stronger is the commanders hatch on the AT-15, and the gap in the gun mantle will now have 279mm vs 127mm now if you compare on tank.gg. Tho atm the AT-15A already got that weak spot removed ages ago. As it had 100mm when it came, but has 202mm now.

 

Besides that the AT-15A will have a stronger MG turret on the roof, with 152 vs 127mm on the AT-15. The hull armor next to the mantle is stronger on the AT-15A, as it has 228mm with the curved area at 152mm, vs 228 and 127mm on the tier 8. The lower plate on the A is 100% 228mm all the way around. Vs 228 at the top, and 137 lower down on the tier 8. So 260mm effective vs over 400 on the tier 7. Even on the side the AT-15A has 152mm all over. The AT-15 will have 152mm on the middle and front. But the rear half that goes down to 101mm.
