Wait... is that a premium clone that is just better than the tech tree version?

 

Better DPM, better gun handling, better top speed, better turret traverse, slightly less HP/t and less effective track traverse

I half wanted to grind the tech tree Firefly. Now maybe I should get the wallet out? :trollface:

I would have been all over this but it's #wallet closed until WG respond in a positive way on their PMM solution.

Yep. Pretty much. Dont get me wrong, nice to see some new NON Tier 8 premiums, but come on WG, Cent has been released on all other servers already except EU. And the UK could do with a LT premium, not another MT (and a better clone at that) . Oh, and where is the Caernarvon AX??

Hmmm....  I looked this morning before coming to work and didn't see the thing...

 

Just bought it now.  Something to try out when I get home for the cricket this afternoon.

 

It'll be interesting to see if it stands up against the Sentinel which has a 17pdr and great gun depression.

Slightly better than the AC 4 Exp, but much worse gun depression and 2/3 the speed. I've got the AC 4 and more than happy with that. The extra gun depression and speed is worth more that the other stats IMHO so sticking with the AC 4.

Because we didn't have enough shermans yet.

Edit : I see this post has the hamsters seal of approval  I don't know how to feel about this now

American ones, Rashan, a few British, one silly French one and even an upcoming Argentinian one? :trollface:

Well i just looked and I cannot see it, but I have the AC4 experimental so am sticking with that. As for the new cent, this is nothing more than deliberate corporate trolling by a company of it's entire player base in the EU, I am convinced there is some political motive behind it.:angry:

The AC 4 is too slow but its nice gun saves it and makes the tank quite enjoyable. So you're saying that this new one doesn't have the AC's redeeming quality and is worse in the aspect that drags it down? Yikes. :D

Why premium tank is better than it's tank-tree counterpart? Pay to win is in the open now?

 

Sorry, wallet closed until the preferential MM issue is resolved. I just can't trust a company that will power creep and ruin premium tanks in the players hands, with no real solution to the problem. This tank will also become obsolete in a short time, when more imaginary monsters with 1000mm of armor and no weak spots will appear.

The speed of the tech tree Firefly killed it for me. Getting worse mobility on the premium version doesn't really interest me.

Yeah, the cosplay Sherman with a gun heavier than the turret. :)

 

This one is quite interesting tho...

 

 

M4A1 FL10, a Sherman hull with an oscillating AMX turret. Took some innovation to put that crap together. :)

If that crap came with an autoloader then wallet open, lol plus the reva whatever did exist I think and was intended for the IDF

Silly as it's probably way past it's sell by date. Even putting a big gun on it doesn't make it particularly better or at least I wouldn't want to be sitting in one after WW2...

That looks epic, can't WG implement that one.

The FL10 was an Egyptian development and the rev was Israeli. The FL10 IRL didn't had a drum like french auto loaders but had an assisted loading system, something like the ready rack the Italian tanks use. Fitting a 105 mm gun to the Sherman was a stopgap solution because it had to fight a much more modern tanks like the IS3.
