Please remove type 5 HE gun, and bring it back to how it was, better armor, less weakspots, and more enjoy to play and to play against..

I have the feeling in tier 8 that my tank is made out of paper... de biggest noobs can pen it with autoaim and a little bit of luck..

Agreed. Why would you give the Type 5 Heavy such a crap gun? That's really ridiculous. Give it at least the the same alpha as the FV4005 has, APCR to make it more funky, penetration values of the JP E100 Heat, the gun stats of the Badger and the reload time of the Cromwell and armor of at least 400 frontally and 300 on the side.

Type 5 had not the weakspots it has now.

When there was no derp gun and the armor was better the battle was fun.

 

Even tier 8 pens it in frontal, without any special ammo.. just cause there is no angle.

 

 

And than the weakspots are huge.

You may get confused. When the derp got introduced, WG also buffed the old weackspot (the hull shoulders) from 220mm up to the UFP thickness. after some patch and complaining from the player base they added 2 fake weackspots of 250mm and 260mm respectively. as you can see, non of them is in the pen range of tier 8 HT standard round, nor in tier 9-10 HT standard round too. I would gladly have back the old armour layout, so the tank, can't angle and I would be able to quite reliably pen it trought the shoulders with AP in tier 8 tanks.

Where? Where can a noob in a tier 8 PEN a Type 5 frontally using autoaim?

Tpye 4 and 5 needs a buff. The amount of times they get penetrated is ridiculous. I propose the Type 4 heavy gets a buff to it's front turret from 250 to 300 mm and the hull from 250 to 300. The sides get buffed to 225 and the rear to 215, so that everything can be fair and balanced. Since the Type 5 is a tier above, it's turret should be buffed to 320mm and front hull to 340mm. The sides should get buffed to 245 and the rear to 230mm so that T8s and T9s can't penetrate it, but T10s can. This way, the Type 4 and 5 can be true super heavy tanks. Also, the penetration and damage of the 15cm guns should be buffed, as I feel that doing 400 damage per shot to T10 heavies, 600 damage per shot to T9 heavies, and 800 damage to T8 heavies is unfair and completely unbalanced

Ehhh? 

Type 5 had 'weakapots', the cheeks, which meant it couldn't angle to well because the cheeks became weak.

 

In the Type 5 buffs,  WG added armour to the cheeks AND added the derp gun in the same patch.

 

Some time later, WG added "weakspots" which are like 240mm or something instead of the 260 the rest of the frontal hull have.

 

Though quite a few T8 tanks can pen it frontally with regular ammo.

The Strv S1 and Udes like <20% of the times.

ISU-152 like 5% of the times at most.

Even regular 225mm pen tanks can pen it frontally <1% of the times if at ranges closer then 50m.

Why is everyone saying T8 tanks can pen the Type 5 heavy frontally with regular ammo? The front of the Type 5 has nothing below 275 mm when facing you. What T8 can penetrate that with regular ammo?

Dude I don't know if you ever viewed the armor model on tanks.gg but the Type5 already has thicker armor on it's supposed weakpoints then same tier guns have standard ammo penetration. Therefor it's impossible for T10 tanks to penetrate it unless they highroll on the penetration.
