The AC 1 Sentinel is an unusual medium tank that represents Australia’s efforts in tank development. It’s a unique piece of history that belongs in any proper tank collection.

So sad... If machine guns were a WoT mechanic; players could double penetrate enemy tanks with this one... Imagine the tactical possibilities!

Got one in the garage its sitting next to my AC4

Not played either for some time so I was wondering.

Given you have been stating they both have a top speed of 60kph a feature you mention whenever you advertise it.

A feature thats mentioned in game in the stats and in the game guides.

I was wondering if you had rebalanced them to actually reach 60.

Even tanks GG reports the Sentinel is faster than a Luchs light tank.

While the AC4 is faster than the 59-16 the 12t and a lot of tier 6 light tanks

 

Not complaining about the tanks performance I am complaining because you stating its speed as 60 means potential buyers will be disappointed when they find the speed to be well average they are definitely not buying a tier 4 Cromwell.

Easy fix and it applies to all tanks premium and standard, rate their speeds and for that matter armour in a way to inform not conceal.

Give top speed and realistic or battle speed, but do please make the top speed one the tank can actually reach on the level before it runs out of map.

I might just try out both tanks today with a turbocharger and anything else that boosts mobility and see if I can get to 60 but don't hold your breath.

If the stats of this tank has not been changed since all these years, when it came out, then is should be by far the worst Tier4 tank in the game!

It was horribly underpowered on its release, and now with all the powercreep it should be pointless.. :(

I remember it having a bad DPM, too low mobility and accuracy/aim time like a KV-2. And there was nothing to compensate those problems.

AC4 was fine, but this one... just don't!

Could really use some buffs.

DPM could be a lot better. Doesn't have to be 2200 like some of the other tier 4 tanks. But 1360 is a bit pitiful.

The aimtime is also really lackluster, especially considering the aim time is more than the actual reload speed of the tank, on a tank that is already struggling with DPM.

So you're constantly going to be aiming in order to hit shots, reducing your DPM even more.
