I think Caernarvon AX is no match for tier 10 tanks. Can't pen almost anything and get pen even by rocks. What's your opinion guys?

What would it say about the tier 10 tanks if a tier 8 could easily pen them

When the MM is working it will be no problem

My 4202 has no issues with Tier 10, just need to find the Sweet Spot for the Caern AX is all.....       The Gun isn't half bad I just wouldn't recommend getting in someone's Face with it.....

 

Remember, Sides are your Friend, and Distracted Targets are Easy Targets.....

Its tier 8, so normal that higher tiers can wreck it...

 

But to be fair, u can deal with the tier 10, not all of them but most, u need to come up with the right strategy for it and also work on those weak spots and "2" key.

Its part of game to face higher tier tanks, so deal with it.

So far, I think caenavronax is the edited t8 i ve ever played. it should have preferred MM or else is completely useless except for campers

And remember the action X is not an in your face heavy tank, it is a long range support tank.

So it is a TURD with glitter, but overall it is still a TURD.

 

I still think KV5 is far superior even after the armour changes.

only stats with this tank, no other british tanks non premium Tanks, so no prior experience

https://wot-life.com/eu/player/playre_eu/

 

High DPM, fast shells, good softstats, extremly fast reload, good penetation, hard turret....good gun depression.

Perma track anyone?

I see alot of bitchin about the tank around...

But what i see in the game itself is bad playing of this tank left and right, then i understand the frustation of some ppl...

 

It seens all ppl tought this was going to be OP, the tank u take out and pen all for every shot u take no questions asked!... really folks?!

 

Bare with me...

If u got a decent turret, good DPM, average pen (for me its good pen), but low alpha and somewhat weak hull, how do u think u should play this tank?

Off course is hull down as much as u can, suport role and not frontline role and boost those stats with crew and equipment!

(wanna talk about bad pen, look at alpha tiger, wz111, IS6 with 175 pen and 12 secs reload, in this u can boost it to 5sec reload and u got 200+ pen)

 

If u are in a same tier or lower u can go HT role with some sucess, if u are low tier (most common), u go heavy medium suport role and u dont, ever, ever, ever go into open areas, or places u know ur gonna give that juicy hull to shoot at at the enemy.

 

So many folks dying cause they dont have the patiente to play this tank properly and them come cry in forums about how bad that tank is.

 

I leave u with a tought!

"Even the worst tank around can be good in the hands of a good player and the best tank in the game means nothing if u sux!"

Funny how Patriot with 240 alpha, but way worse DPM, gun handling and turret armor is borderline OP and CAX is rubbish. :D

It needs more alpha like regular Carnervon, cuz it often meets tier 10 tanks and its not deterrent

Its a poor heavy and a crap medium. too big and paper with a pathetic gun to be a heavy, too big and sluggish to be a medium. the turrets pathetic. cant sidescrape with 50 side armor. cant bait highly angled lower plate shots as its 0 armor and ammorack. the UFP is pretty pathetic to say how the LFP is SO BAD.

 

They even gave it a tier 10 medium tank turret but its british so its not worth anything. my T-34-3 shot threw the face of 1 3 times in a row with crappy 250 heat.

 

This tank needs armor buffing badly. the gun can stay if it can at least reliably hulldown against a gold spamming Lowe with 295pen. Lowe turret can eat gold for breakfast and has literally no weak spots, its cupola is even smaller!. its LFP is stronger, UFP stronger, side armor to sidescrape. anything CaernAX can do LOWE does better 100%.

 

Why even introduce CaernAX? its a giant turd in every aspect. 50TP can be a tier 8 heavy with 10 gundep and 440 alpha. but a brit tank cant have anything other than a god dam 20 pounder. you make me sick WG. boasting historical accuracy when you feel like it but make a line of FAKE china TD's.

 

Edit: and for thoese who are like "lol l2p nub" the russian forums are hateing this thing too. they all say its a tank used for trade it and not worth a garage slot. typical british tank garbage.

Caernarvon AX.............more like Citroen AX.  Although I'd put my money on the French Family car lasting longer

I had really bad taste on regular caravan with 20 pdr, and it was a massive change when it got the 30 pdr, that I even re-bought it back.

When I first sae news about T8 british heavy prem, I though, well, at least proper gun then maybe?
And they released it with 20 pdr.

LOL NO.

I'm struggling a bit with the Caern X. Very similar to the struggle I had with the Centurion I. The gun is fine, but the turret isn't very reliable, which should be the strong point of that tank. 

My DPG is similar in both tanks and it's short of most other Tier VIII.

Tried to make it work but it's often up against higher tier heavies where it's outmatched and a quick trip back to the garage. Overall a disappointment.
