A.) Where is my turret buff back to pre HD model levels.
B.) Where are the gun handling buffs for compensation for the HD turret armor?
C.) Who asked for 10kph more speed?

Gun handling is needed, but saying you don't need to buff the cripling speed of this PoS tanks is insane. DMP and speed buffs cover at lest 2/3rd of this tanks problems, armour is not really and issue, never had reliable bouncy armour against even same tiers.

Yeah gun handling is needed. They improved the dispersion values on the M4 Rev and that seems to had a very positive effect for that tank. I think something similar would be good for the Centurions.

Not overly impressed. The ROF buff and speed are an improvement if small. I'm more impressed/surprised that the tanks are not being nerfed.

Hopefully this insanity from WG will last a while so they can buff the HT/Td lines.

 

they need their ridge fighting abilities back and some half-decent gun handling would be nice.

Although at least the proposed Aim circle RNG being proposed on the Sandbox won't impact the 105 and will ensure that it remains as "accurate" as it does at present...

 

...and then they nerf APCR penetration at distance.  So although the L7A1 will be able to hit the weakpoints at 500m, by the time it gets there it may not have enough PEN.

The Swedish cent  III in supertest has a ridiculously strong turret, though supposedly identical to the British version in real life...apart from the atgm launcher, maybe a sign of changes to come.

Don't see it happening for the British Centurion's. They have been taking turret armour away from them rather than adding.(also making them faster) You never know tho.

I have my fingers crossed more for the Caern' as the new turret model I saw is extremely flat fronted and 250mm of thickness would stop it being crappy.

Well I haven't played regularly for some time, since the game was getting worse and worse, and to have to play more than 2 games in a row for missions has become hilariously painful. 9/10 of games are just broken meds winning 15-3, 90% of tanks are completely useless and so far behind the power creep curve that there is bugger all you can do to just enjoy it for a few seconds. The anti-NATO artillery mechanisms means anything that's not a broken biasmobile or power-crept cash cow just gets obliterated after being spotted by the first 2 cm of a soviet med's canon as it protrudes from the flower bed that so magically makes soviet tanks disappear. So I have to be in the top 5 damagers, easy right? roll out in a tier 8, I get a match with 8 tier Xs each side. It's just pathetic. I have no idea how people can endure this. It has to be the shittest game I've ever played, out of the thousands of games I've played. It's just crap, there's no other words for it. As an IT pro it fascinates me to see how this giant turd still keeps going, and I keep coming back to see what amazing device they'll come up with to make it even worse. It's just spectacular, to some extent I am in awe. And to read the discussions...well OK I used to take part when I thought they were trying to improve the game like any sane person would. But for them to systematically spit in the face of the players and for the players to keep coming back to give them money...I just want to understand, I guess that's why I keep coming back. I've been studying a few games for my own research, and this one just baffles me. I am genuinely curious as to how far the paying customers will let WG defecate in their mouth and still empty their wallets in their bank accounts. Simply fascinating.

they seem to be happy with unhistorical buffs though, could see the whole tree get the German treatment.  Cents need the turret armour to be relevant, heavies need something, TDs needs a reword.  Make Achilles a premium move the whole tree down 1 and stick the 215b 183 on top of the turreted line, FV4005 at tier 9 and find something more brick like to go atop the other line.

 

And lights, Vickers paper tonks at tiers 8 and 9 and something from project prodigal at tier 10 (hopefully).

I actually like this idea. Charioteer with 20pdr could very well work at tier 7 and Conway and Challenger at tier 8 and 6 with reduced RoF.

 

FV4005 would be like 183 expect it doesnt have any armor and probably little worse gun stats. At same time i would rework 183s: reduce HESH damage to 1450, make it regular ammo, remove AP, buff RoF to keep effective DPM similar on HESH. This would make it more historical and bit less broken. Then add a new tier 10 to AT line that actually fits the line.

I can think of a couple

The Jagdcheiftain

 

The FV205

The Jagdcheiftain
Too modern

 

The FV looks interesting as it follows the trend of losing armour and in this case hopefully gaining some speed. It's also from the right time period for the game. Finally If it's just a scale model WG can do what they want, so a Tortoise on steriods sounds fitting.

JagdCheiftain is around the time of the STB-1 and the Sheriden (late 1960s, early 1970s), and we have those in game :P

Both of those are 60's vehicles tho' stb did enter service around 1970. The JC was definitely 70's. It also was destined for reactive armour which won't happen. (After a little googling) 

WG as far as I know always said they would stop at the 1960's. Though you never know we may get some decade creep:)

Think they have switched more towards does the technology fit rather than a hard decade cut off, so tanks like the stb-1 and that Chinese thing with the L7 make it into the game.  The Jagdcheiftain special armour might rule it out though, even if tanks like E5 would have had composite armour had they been built.

 

Think there was hints at a tortoise II with an enourmous engine, as well as others like that super heavy listy found or that conqueror casemate tank FV217 that could serve to top the assault tank line.
