So I have all the tanks that were nerfed or buffed today and the Kranvagn really got a decent buff. My first game in it today I got ace tanker and 6k damage, really enjoying it now. Type 5 I will probably never play again, its pretty bad, Fv4005 is ok still but not as crazy as it was, probably wont use it nearly as much, and arty is done for, I see no value playing them anymore, not that I did much anyway, but I did for the missions. If the enemy is using a heavy spall liner then you may aswell be throwing rocks at them.

And that is sad, but at least there is something to grind for in this line. Kran is indeed good now.

In my opinion Kranvagn is still trash. The weakpoints were the pathetic gun handling and the bad penetration, not the dpm...

Dunno about that. Nerfs looked bad in patch notes but...

- gun handling was nerfed by 0.01 on hull movement only,

- tank effectively lost 3-4 degrees of hull traverse (depending on surface),

+ bigger alpha,

+ smaller clip (shorter exposure time),

+ faster reload (25.3s with BiA and vents which is awesome),

+ 35 mm of hull side armour so no more getting overmatched by everything - you can even angle Emil a bit and easily get ~200+ mm effective armour on LFP and ~220 mm on UFP.

 

Please note that 4th shells was useless most of the time because of 3s intra-clip reload. Personally, I was often reloading after firing 2-3 shells so smaller clip with much better reload is a big plus for me. Firing two shells and going for reload doesn't seem like a waste now and you are not useless for 33 s.

Also, while Emil I lost one shell, clip potential went down from 1280 to 1080 so only 200 less which means it didn't lose one shell but 60% of it... And dealing 1080 damage in 6s is better than dealing 1280 damage in 9 s because most tanks will be reloaded by then.

 

Hull armour buff is huge but nobody seem to notice it. 0.01 worse gun handling is a big deal for everybody while 35 mm side armour was the most important change to Emil I in this patch. No overmatching from all 105 mm guns (!) and less, ability to sidescrape and angle the tank to make hull ~200+ mm effective - this isn't important. Who cares if Emil I gets penetrated in the side from every angle when you have 0.01 worse gun handling...

I did not have the Kravagn before the Nerf - I find it is enjoyable to play it also seems quite fast or is it me? ok it does lose a shell unlike the T57 - to me it drives and feels better than T57 but no 6k damage
