I have been thinking on this. Why does the entire TD line with the crapbarn have small Guns compared with the tier 10? I dont say the others are bad or something. I love the charioteer and the conway.

But why not make a second tier 10 TD that fits the Gun class more of the line. I dont know of there are any tank destroyers with a turret and that have a 120-130 mm Gun. But I think the FV4401 Contentious could fit pretty good as a tier 10 tank after the conway. 

The FV4401 has several Guns that could fit. Either a 20 pounder auto loader, a 105 mm Canon or twin 120mm revolver canons.

As a tier 10 tank the 20 pounerr would not work and the twin 120 mm revolver would be maybe to OP. But it would be a cool mechanic in the game. But The 105 mm would work the best.

The tank did have hydraulics so. As I can see on the tank.

 

But what do everybody else think. Should there be a more fitting tier 10 TD after the conway or a second one after it.

It'd be nice to have a functional tier 10 TD after the Conway. Something that actually work and not just for memes whether it's the Contentious or any other design. Personally, i'd prefer a tank without the hydropneumatic suspension. It limits the tank's performance on a lot of maps and in a lot of situations.

How does the hydraulics limit the tank?  Cant they make the suspension the same as the SBT and udes 14?  Or is there something else that are bothering you?

If your proposal works like the swedish TDs then yes it limits the tank's ability to peek corners, fire on the move or fire quickly in general because of the delay before entering the siege mode. Using the same suspension as the STB-1 will solve these issues.

I think at this point the 4005 line is probably the most nonsensical and unsalvageable one in the whole game. There is simply no fixing it without removing 4005 and replacing it with other tank, or giving the other tanks stupid guns that dont make sense either. And even if 4005 was replaced, conway also makes no sense compared to what charioteer is. So literally every single tank from t8 to 10 has nothing to do with the others.

 

My own opinion is that if the line were to be changed it should be made into a line of charioteers and 4005 should be removed. But there probably arent even any british tanks like charioteer for higher tiers. And the reason why conway makes no sense either in that kind of line is because compared to charioteer it is too huge (especially the turret) and has no camo. Obviously camo can be tweaked, but historically camo and size are stats that go hand in hand...

 

So really unless WG were to pull some napkin designs i dont see how the line could be made consistent. Not to mention that i very much doubt WG is interested in changing the line to make more sense because they simply love their game breaking high alpha tanks...
