The tank has 47mm of penetration. Enough to pen most tier 3s. The premium ammo has 110mm of penetration, and can one-shot all but one tier 3 with autoaim.

 

I suggest WG removes the premium HEAT ammo, halves the HE damage and reduces the penetration to 25mm.

 

Otherwise the glorious heights of tier 3 is ruined for everyone.

...and you miss it because your shell velocity rivals that of a spud gun.

An 85 year-old with tetanus could dodge the 3.7's shell due to the sloth-velocity, so it really isn't as Godzilla like as one would think.

I played that tank for some 20 games. The way I understood, you don't actually shoot with it, you point at a target and if it stays stationary for 10 seconds, it gets nuked from the orbit.

Well.

My answer to this is very simple.

Compare the number of players playing this OP tank (The Cruiser II with derp) to the number of players playing the PZ1C.  

Without looking at the actual numbers, I will venture out and say that the PZ1C drivers outnumber the Cruiser II drivers probably 5 to 1 on the low end estimate, and more likely 15 to 1 or much higher.

When I play tier 3, and I do play tier 2-3-4 on occasion, very rarely do I see less then 3-4 1c's in each match, usually 4-5.  Very often I see platoons of 1c's.  

I cannot recall the last time I saw a platoon of 3 Cruiser II's.

 

That was the serious answer.

 

The real answer is this is obviously a counter to the PZ1C thread, and I doubt you really mean it.  Good on ya for making it a clean jab, and not a dirty one.

Cruiser II is fine, its a slow tank that has no armour with a extremely unwieldy gun. yes it can oneshot things but only if said things sit still infront of it. its essentialy a KV-2 at tier 3.

 

what about the M2 Medium? it has 370 base viewrange and -20 gun depression, with a good crew and equipment it will outspot just about anything (except the FCM36pak40) and it too has acces to 91 penn HEAT shells, sure it doesnt oneshot things except for tier 2 tanks and TDs but it handles much much better.

 

have some Cruiser II memes by yours truly :hiding:

Spoiler
