Hello fellow tankers! As it happens, two tanks that interest me have hit the store leaving me to decide which one I should purchase. What do you think - are they equally competitive, and how does their novelty factor come to play? 152K derp gun would surely be fun,  but I've also heard good things about this British Premium heavy. Does one have a higher skill cap than the other? I'm relatively new to WOT PC with 52% wr with about 1000 games, while I had some 7000 games with +58% wr on blitz, if it matters to the question.

 

Cheers.

I have the Carn AX bought for credits in the black market event it's enjoyable and good for me as it shares a crew with 2 other brit heavies, I wouldn't have bought it for real money though there are better T8 premium heavies.   If you have time you can earn yourself the USA Patriot which is similar through the referal program.  I don't feel it needs a high skill cap, the tech tree Caernarvon is better however.

 

Credit making I suspect the TD will be more profitable thanks to the pen and alpha per shell.

I'd go with the Caernarvon AX just because of the well enough armor and most importantly the incredibly fast reloading accurate yet low alpha damage gun. Believe me when I tell you that you build up damage faster than you'd think with such low alpha damage.

Thank you all for the replies! I went for the Caernarvon and am very pleased currently, mastered it on the second game with almost 1600XP and after about twenty games a winrate of almost 80%. Especially on lower tier matchups the turret is pretty much impenetrable, and the gun enables permatracking enemies with ease.

Caern AX 100%, ISU152K is just ... worse 152 with better penetration.
