The armoured vehicle equivalent of a shot in the head would be a shot in the ammo rack. Since this is a British tank, one can absolutely "headshot" it.

 Why you didn't include Discuss on forum link at the bottom of your Previous article regarding medium tank rebalance? Afraid of critique much?

Hulldown its extremely hard to pen your turret (cupola is weakspot so wiggle and move your turret). RoF is good (<5 sec reload with good crew), and pen is fine. Alpha as usual in British tanks is 'ok, just like it gets ammoracked easy. When first released I was disappointed it came with a 20-pounder gun in stead of a 32 pounder, but I can make it work. I have a great time playing it in FL mode training up a crew for the SConq.

 

And yes, Supreme bundles have been 100 euros for quite some time now.

Yes they are. Since in every forum topic related to the changes (or the lack of changes in the case of the Obj. 430/430U ...) there is already a sh*tstorm .

Is not op, is situational tank, in some situation can bounce some shells with turret. Sometimes can permatrack but against tier X is useless.

Is not an easy tank to play well. If you count to much on it's armour will be disappointed.

All the people cry because they canceled the nerf of 430 U but this tank is the only tech three tank that can do something against clan tanks.

907 is op, 279 (e) was recently buffed, chieftain is op, 260 was buffed. In all clan battles tech three tanks are rare.

430u have bad gun depression and if lower plate is exposed or you play to agressive in most situations game is over.

Unbelievable.

Caernarvon AX, AMX M4 mle. 49, IS-3A and Somua SM at the same time in the shop.

Really?

 

It seems developers want a little bit heavier team's setups in battles. ;)

Me too, especially while playing with LT. :P

They're not even hiding the fact that it's OP, thus a "unicorn tank". Yet, there is something happy in me inside that the regular Caernarvon has better DPM than the premium one! :)

There was a marathon mission for this tank and you could get it for free playing the game for 7 hours per day for 2 weeks.

A friend of mine got it as a british trainer and he regrets it a lot... only works as hull-down and it easy to deal with in most other scenarios.

Hulldown positions are plenty, I really have few problem finding them.

Hopping from one to the next at the right time is tougher ;)

It almost sounds like a Caernarvon. What exactly was he expecting?

It may require ‘hull down’ to be effective - but given 10 degrees gun depression, that’s not as’situational’ as some other tanks that rely on the same tactic.
