It's a rhetorical question of course,wg wants you to convert gold to free xp.

45k xp to be exact for a gimmick ''improved accuracy'',the gun bloom still being the size of a barn.

Hardly the same game gun, it aims quicker, fires quicker, more accurate and you get 0.02 less bloom on turret movement definitely worth 45k xp...!

Better dispersion of 0.35 better aim time 2.3 and better rof 9.1 vs 9.5 yes its alot of xp but with boosters and daily x5  xp boost its fast.

Sure you notice a difference. But not a 45K difference. 20 pd is still worthless on anything tier 8 besides the AT-15. If the ROF gain was insane. Sure. But that's a 15K leap at best.

You missed the sarcasm, the xp is too much :)

Well, these days on this forum, in all fairness... It's harder to spot. Maybe we should get one of these....

I thought this would be about the regular version and the TD version of those guns.

To make your grind longer.

So from pure frustration, you will go for premium, to decrease the painful grind.

KV-3 is a more serious offender of this. The two 122mm guns are practically the same, the only thing the upgrade does is increasing your rof. Aimtime, accuracy & everything else stays the same...

Same thing on Centurion 7/1. Starting of with the OQF 20-pdr Gun Type A Barrel, then you need 45k XP for the Type B barrel - where you gain 0,3s reloading, 0,01 dispersion and 0,4s aim time.  A well spent 45k....  Oh - and then you need another 25k XP for turret and then 65k XP to get the 105mm L7a1... Lovely grind indeed. :ohmy:

 

Oh - of course you need to get tracks first (23k XP) cause the stock tank is pretty much maxed on stock track.

 

Surprise - all the rasha IX meds (T-54, Obj 430, Obj 430 II) can mount top gun & turret without needing the better tracks. Just because rasha grind cannot be as painful as other nations.
