Well, now that we've had the arty "fix" for quite some time now I took up arty again. Grinding the Su-14-2 at the moment, but I'm torn on what gun to choose. Sure, the 203 is pretty devastating when it gets a good hit, but it doesn't fire very often and isn't very accurate. Unlike the 152. But the 152 doesn't have nearly the same splash or damage. Any Russian arty mains who want to help me out here?

I don't have any of those but I've been hit by them (lol);

 

The 152 for general purpose

The 203 for when you wanna thrash stuff.

 

It's not as innacurate as it seems. But running food on SPGs might help if you're finding the 203 too temperamental. And BiA.

Another thing is, although the mobility won't allow you to as effectively move, if the map allows, try to be in a position where, even if you have to be constantly moving to aim, you are able to get a clean shot out of your field of view.

 

I'd use the 203 since SPGs are mostly a hit or miss, anyway.

 

But it also depends on your target. If you're like counter scouting then the 152 is what you're looking for. If you wanna thrash the heavies, go with the 203.

 

Apart from, that. I dunno. It's not rocket science. ;)

203 > 152 on the SU-14-2, any day. The RoF goes actually down on the 152 mm from the S-51, and the damage output starts to be really pathetic at this tier. Also, the reload on the SU-14-2 is much faster than on the S-51 when both of them are using the 203 mm.

 

The 152 is better on the S-51, but on the SU-14-2 the 152 is almost the same as the tier 7, while the 203 mm improves significantly over the S-51.

Use the big gun otherwise your playing a GWpanther without the gun traverse angles.
