Yikers, the gunhandling is pretty bad on this tank, especially since I don't run prem consumables on it, not planning to either since it's one of my moneymakers. Thinking of replacing vents with GLD, i'll still have 450m view range so view range aint a problem. Anyone have experience with GLD+Optics+Vstab setup with this tank?

vents optics vstab. 

Nothing else needed besides a good crew, there are plenty of meds with far worse gun handling that this and they dont have the massive clip potential.

NO there arent many meds with worse gun handling pls point me to some.

 

Edit: in fact, the only tier8 medium with worse gun handling is the T69, every other tank has better or equal handling.

CDC, FV4202, 34-2, Guard, Indien, Super pershing have all worse gun handling while being single shot tanks.

No they dont. 

 

 CDC and FV are flat out better than the lorr. Indien PZ and guard have worse dispersion but much better aimtime, so their overal gun handling is better.

I did forget about the SP, but thats not really a med and even then the gun handling is better since it soo slow and has better aimtime.

The T34-2 is indeed worse, so 2 tanks have worse gun handling ,wow!

I don't think they're factoring in aim time when considering overall gunhandling, quite foolish.

 

Anywways i've changed vents for GLD and it much more tolerable, it went from 2.48s aim time to 2.3, much better.

If Pershing being slow works for its gun handling, CDCs speed works against it. 

 

0,4-5s aiming time versus 0.05 turret traverse bloom. I'd rather take better turret traverse than aiming time.

Except the lorraine is faster than the cdc so your point?

 

Doesnt matter what you would take, 0.4s aiming time is massive and matters way more than turrer dispersion.

Top speed, but seeing effective values, CDC does achieve higher speeds more often. So your point back to you.

 

Like I said, I prefer turret etc. dispersions more than aiming time.

want good gun handling? then BIA + food, if not then its your own problem. anyway lorraines gun handling is not even close to being as bad as t69 which is terrible even with bia + vents + vstab + egld and food.

Have you seen the terrain resistance values of the lorr and the cdc? yeah... 

Regardless which one is faster, they are barely different. 

 

And like I said, it doesnt matter what you prefer.

Plenty of difference to me:

 

What I prefer is all that matters as we are telling our opinions here. Or are you saying you preferring aim time doesn't matter either? Neither of our opinions are facts, just different sides of playstyle. I'm guessing I take more snapshots which is why I prefer dispersion values and so on and so on.

I dont see a difference, the terrain values even out the better p2w, so in the end they are about as fast. ( from experience I would say the lorr is faster).

 

Gun handling isnt an opinion though, I dont prefer aiming time,  I look at everything and the CDC has clearly better gun handling.  

So how many times do you shoot someone without aiming  while turning the turret?  And compared to that how many times do are you driving , then stopping to aim and shoot?

Really surprised I like this thing so much. I really don't like higher tier tanks but the Lorr for some reason just works for me. I imagine it's because its weaknesses are mostly things that don't really matter I mean it's armoured about as well as my car but so what? everyone spams premium ammo so if it did have armour, it would be worthless and it's the size of a small country but I always seem to get snap-shotted even in tiny fast tanks anyway. 

 

glad I got it 'free' in one of those Christmas boxes. The other tank I got free, the skorp G I just cannot for the life of me make work.

I try to get close enough that the target fills my aim circle even when it is large.

 

I like my Lorraine.
