I thought you wanted to do away with preferential mm ?

Anyway I have this tank its a decent low tier tank a tier 4 heavy with a very low pen gun but tons of ammunition.

You will always be top tier thats one thing

So this is a german premium heavy tank, because germans captured it and slightly modified it.

But the 105 leFH18B2 is somehow a french premium arty after germans installed a fully german howitzer on top of the same captured tank. 

Well done WG.

Normal WG logic...

 

There's a German KV1 on the console version.

Yes.  Why not promote a tank more sure to put newer players off?

One would think, that WG would be interested in keeping the new player influx that came with 1.0 invested in the game, so you know, they stay and eventually become customers... Apparently, however, someone from the WG marketing department forgot that the word "invested" has more than one meaning...

Are these capable of taking on a Matilda? I'm sure I had one of these before but not sure if I got rid of it, plus the price is a bit off putting, I gifted a friend a tier 5 Churchill 3 recently and it cost less than a fiver, that made it a good deal, £17.10 for this I am not sure about so wallet closed for me.

Not really The Matilda can easily pen the B2 and the B2 will have to use premium to have any real chance of penning the matilda

 

The B2 has good frontal armour but the place where the howitzer was mounted in the original French tank is 45mm

So mostly 75mm but a 45mm weak spot and a gun that has 55 pen with AP and 90 pen with premium APCR.

 

Matilda has over 70mm armour most places and a gun with 121 pen with standard AP

The 400 hit points of the B2 will vanish fairly quickly, 

Personally I would treat a Matilda as a major threat load premium and pray

The B2 is totally obsolete in this game, it's a money pit and not a credit earner.  It's not even enjoyable to play any more.

Yeah, 105 leFH18B2 was only in german service.But I guess someone out  there is to dumb to understand that ,apart from honoring historic truth, . they would sell millions of  German 105leFH18B2s.To dumb to milk easy money that is in front of their nose.

Most of that hat cost is nothing to do with the tank.

30 days premium

1,300 gold

1 garage slot

 

gotta be at least £12 of added ‘bloat’ if not more. So probably fair deal if you would have planned on taking premium and gold anyway

Just be prepared to spam APCR.. and stay away from Matilda or anything with a derp like a Hetzer.

Got one of these in a christmas box. Didn't make me feel like an invincible clubber so it got put away with the decorations.
