it has been found for years in game files as medium tier X tank, too bad to introduce it as tier 8..that waste ..

Looks interesting, but weird that a 105 gun gets 390 alpha.. if you hear they want to change alpha to the specific caliber.

Shiny! I like it. Looks well balanced. But that cupola seems rather large...

 

EDIT: compares the pen with the T32... *cries*

Not quite, the one in the game files atm has the m48 patton hull, while this thing uses the t54e1 hull which is a bit weaker.

 

It looks interesting, really nice gun handling on what should be a mobile platform. Do wonder though how effective that cupola's gonna be since that could make or break anything the armour would have going for it.

So, that's like M103 downtiered to tier8? 

 

Probably without the turret weakspot because otherwise it's too weak for tier8.

Wow another tier 8 US premium HT with more pen then the T32.

 

But... I wonder how the armor layout is. As in if that cupola will be like the T95E2, or if it will be fairly well armored, or bordeline silly like the VK.

Atm more based on tier then caliber tbh. As the higher you get, the more alpha some get. As 105m does 390 on tier X meds. And 300 on tier 5 TD's etc. But it's not the first 105 with 390 alpha on tier 8. But first on a HT iirc at the top of my head. As most guns with that caliber on tier 8 HT's range from 320 to 360 as is. One was recently buffed from 340.

I don't know if you're referring to the armor but the hull is the same as the T54E1, 152.4 mm at the front and 76.2 mm at the sides. The turret is much stronger with 250 mm at the front and 140 mm at the sides apart from that cupola of course.

This gets 390 alpha and the T32 keeps its crappy 320 alpha. Nice. Not much more to say. Just another powercreep tank, lets see how overpowered balanced this one will be. :)

So another tank with minor tweaks that gets down tierend and looks balanced, where as it's tech tree counterpart...

I dont think it will be overpowered as it is now, it just highlights how much the T32 has been left behind. I just hope the T32 and up get some love in the HT rebalance.
