We all know type 5 heavy is worth it only when u playin with derp gun, and shooting Premium Ammunition 

And that is too expansive to shoot, also type5 is not that much op when opponents shooting Premium Ammunition to it

I think type5 is goin be balanced if: delete or make stronger cupola, add another gun with bigger alpha (that stock is also good but weird damage rool(everytime under 550)(Alpha is 600)))

To be fair the AP gun is indeed trash and could be buffed, but no way in hell the armor needs a buff. Cupola is like the only place on the tank's entire armor layout that you can actually pen with AP (and its so unreliable that nobody bothers to shoot it).  The derp gun is pretty fking broken though and should be just removed, or at very least the prem HE should be removed and then the stats should be tweaked a bit

 

The entire tank needs a massive overhaul if you're gonna ever fix it tbh

Well he is not wrong about the gun. All the Jap HT's from tier 7 and up needs some gun buffs or adjustments to make them more appealing vs just derp. I mean the T49 got a 90mm gun with more DPM vs the derp just as an example to get more to use it vs just the derp. There is a reason why everyone uses the O-I derp on the tier 7 and 8. As their AP guns are terrible in terms of both pen, dpm and gun handling. I'm not saying super heavies need super DPM. But something would not hurt. That and the AP gun on the Type 5 can't even pen a fellow Type 5 head on unless you high pen roll. And that's why no one uses the AP guns, as they are not that effective vs other super heavies unless you 100% gold spam on that as well.

 

Buff the AP guns in some way, and reduce the gold alpha to less then the normal HE shell to about 1K or 950. But buff the pen instead. It will still do more damage vs the normal shell, but won't one shot meds or lights.

Yeah he's kinda crazy, actually both tier IX and X are not the greatest, taking into account that they are super heavy tanks  like the Maus and thus should be at least as hard to kill.

By the way what they would actually need, with the AP gun buff (that is necessary), at least an increased protection on the frontal plate or additional armour on the frontal side cheeks to allow it to sidescrape like almost every tank at that tier.

If not, well, just an heat shield like on the T26E4 or on the S. Conqueror would greatly help given the fact that both the Types aren't "historically accurate".

And we could say the same about the T110E5 which should be reworked to make it stronger, given the new OP tanks that came out recently, but that's for another topic.
