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.

I'd rather have the buffed Centurion turret.
