Even with 0.3 accuracy the Foch 155 still misses 2/3 shots. :teethhappy:

That's the magic of autoloaders. Never allowed to pen a full clip. :trollface:

What about the Deathstar though? How accurate can it get?

 

The Foch 155's HE shells are the only way to play that thing, really.

I got it to 0.33 without bonds equipment or directives:teethhappy: It can actually snipe decently.

I can get the 4005 to the same value as well (along with food, which I use on it anyway). The problem is if you want to buff its reverse speed (up to 11 km/h, which is actually workable over the default 8 km/h) you will have to sacrifice something that the Death Star will not need to.

 

For the record I achieved the above with Vents, Aiming Unit and Additional Reverse Transmission, but the latter can be easily replaced by a Rammer for the 215B 183 or 4005s that don't feel they need the quicker reverse speed.

The only problem with putting food on a FV 215B chassis is that you become a lot more vulnerable to destruction by fire, thanks to your forward-mounted engine and fuel tanks. The FV 215B 183 even has weaker armour than the FV 215B 120, and while you can hide in certain maps with it, it won't be as plausible in others.

 

But that being said... I expect this particular use-case to be nerfed soon. Just like last time :P

That's where the new CO2 fuel tanks step in, protecting you from that first fire. They work like automatic fire extinguishers, but only once per battle IIRC.

That's true! But that means sacrificing an equipment slot, which, in the case of the FV 215B 183 and FV 4005 (not worried about fires, but its reverse speed is atrocious), will have to be either the Rammer, or the Vents. I'd personally opt to keep Vents rather than the Rammer; while the DPM increase is valuable, it is not often you need to fire exactly when you've reloaded, as opposed to augmenting most other aspects of your vehicle's effectiveness (including its vulnerability to fires, or its terrible reverse speed).

 

It's worth mentioning that the CO2 fuel tanks only protect from fires from fuel tank damage. It's still possible to be set on fire with the first hit to your engine, and whatnot, unless I really, really misunderstand engine fires as opposed to fuel tank fires.

Welp, it turns out I just had to put food on it and fire HE. Did 7.3k damage and 1k assist. On the live server that would have been my damage record lmao. 

 

food gets it down to 0.28 btw

Accuracy has never been a massive problem on either 183, it's the bloom that means you have to aim for 5s if you turn the turret a tiny bit.

The Foch155 has always missed or bounced at least 1 shot of every 3 shot clip, even before the nerfs. It's just what it does, like all French autoloaders always bounce 1 shot every clip.

Got Grille to 0.22 accuracy, still miss about a 1/3rd of shots, especially since with that pen you really need to aim.
