Don't get me wrong, 30 prot is among my favorite tanks in the game, however I do miss the playstyle of it before the rework as well and I miss the accuracy. Is leo PT A similiar and is it a good tank overall, I hope it's not a stinker like its tier 10 counterpart.

It's similar, though AMX30 even before the change was better in shooting on the move. Once you fully aim you're golden in Prot. And it's definitely not a stinker. If you like(d) AMX you should be able to make this one work equally well. Requires good crew though.

Leopard PT A is amazing tank.

 

Fast, mobile and armed with deadly cannon.

well recent amx 30 changes is one of the best wg balance example. Before that PTA was just better in almost everything now they both have their roles. Sadly but with these changes centurion lost its role. That tank really really needs rof buff. Atm it is too low for tank with that quite unique gold ammo. It worked well on fv4202 exactly bc of great rof.

 

p.s. still go for pta it is cdc on steroids even with that rng based gun:)

Yes but better. I found the PTA after I enjoyed the pre nerf 30 and the German tech tree amendments meant I didn't need to play the Indian at all.

They are almost the same same. Leo PT A did get better after the last buffs. But still trails a bit behind the AMX after his buffs in some areas. But with the mobility, camo and view range it can be a better support med even so on some maps. So kinda like the old AMX indeed if you will.

 

AMX 30 has the turret that can actually bounce a few shots when using a ridge line, and great DPM. So you can take more risks. Leo has mobility and accuracy, and a way faster shell speed. But don't expect to bounce anything. And expect a bad trade if you use ridge lines. I say mobility as the AMX has more power to weight, Leo bleeds less speed due to the better traverse stats etc. So it's great for hit and runs still.

it's not similar, as the PTA has a terrible reload. I loved the AMX 30 Prototype before it was changed, because the dpm was fine, mobility and gun was great, especially the reload. Now I rarely play it. I just didn't care for the fact it had no armor.

I agree with this. Reload time could be "buffed" a bit, but still I love this tank.
