I have been playing this tank for a while now (bought it when it first came out) and back then it was a nice new shiny tank with good DPM and decent mobility. I loved it's gameplay style, but now that new tanks have been introduced to the game, I feel like it could get a buff, and not a minor one. A buff that would make it a lot better but not overpowered and still a snack to lower and higher tier opponents due to it's bad armor.

 

I feel like it should get a better gun, a gun that would be a pleasure to use. 

 

Current stats:

Damage: 150/150/190

Penetration: 171/239/38mm

RoF: 13,95

Aim time: 2,3s

Accuracy: 0.39

 

My proposal:

Keep the alpha damage and the penetration the same, but buff the gun handling and the DPM a lot.

RoF: from 13,95 to 17-18? This would give the A45 a great DPM but keeping it balanced around it's armor. (which sucks btw).

Aim time: from 2.3s to 2.0s. 

Accuracy from horrible 0.39 to decent 0.35.

Increase the top speed from 31km/h to 34km/h.

 

 

What do you think? Should it get a buff of some kind? :bajan:

Give it a 20 pdr gun with the same DPM. The 17 pdr has nothing to do on anything past tier 6 in the new meta. It was decent enough when it came even with that gun. Now less so. WG did even realize that on the Challenger. 

 

Mine has a ROF of 16.9 and 2536 DPM with BIA, vents and rammer alone atm. So it don't need a massive buff to work with the 17. But ideally, if they want to keep the 17 they could give that and the BP new ammo vs the other 17 pdr. So that the pen got closer to 200 instead. 171 average on a low roll is not ideal, even when top tier when on a HT line.

So, I just traded my HT No. VI for the A45, and I have to say....

 

I like it. ok the Alpha is trash, and the speed is total vank. last 4 games I seem to be doing ok in.

I love mine, got the biggest win ratio on it of 60%, and itsi great in t7 matches and sometimes against t8 too.

 

Still, I agree that it could use better penetration or other kind of gun buff except dpm one to be more competitive. Still great crew trainer and fun tank to play

If they give it that sick RoF it would become really unbalanced, 18 shots per minute base means 20 shots per minute with crew and equipment and that means 3 sec reload and 3k DPM on a tier 7 tank! It would turn in permatrack monster, plus what about the stat padders? Those guys would just load full gold with 239mm pen and go for it.

I don't recall if it was here or the NA Forum, but I had said I thought the Tank needed some Work....      Afterall, the Cent's got some as did the Heavy Line, but the A45 was left out of BOTH Reworkings....

 

Since WG is Largely going to Pass on the A45 with the Caern AX being out now, I suggested that maybe they would be Better Off just Pull the A45 from the Tier 9 Rotation....     This would give them the Time to decide Buff or leave it a PMM Tank....     It's not a Tank that handles Tier 9 Well, it hardly handles Tier 8 well with the New Breeds of Tanks coming out these days.....

 

Just my thoughts on the Topic.....     I like my A45, but it doesn't see alot of Use the last Year or so.....
