    1. so, 55mm in flat front, 75mm in curved places up and above, and 100mm in the mantlet plus armor behind the mantlet? would be that a good expectative of the effective armor? =P


        1. and it catched my eye, it’s 105mm gets a 104 pen shell, that’s alot, considering the top gun gets 115 for half the damage, and considering m4 105 shoots only HE, and pz4h 105mm AP have only 64pen, its basically OI-exp level =P

          1. Hmm. Now as you are saying it…
            Holy crap, this will be the most OP tier 5 tank in the game. They will nerf it, I’m calling it right now!
            Oh, also: *caught. Not ‘catched’
            The more you know, eh?

            1. Yes, you’re right.
              And well, they will nerf it for sure, but I believe that only in the soft stats of the gun, like they did on the OI-exp, where the problem was the super alpha for a tier 5, and WG changed everything except the real problem.
              Anyway, if the soft stats of this 105mm come to be like the soft stats from the pz4h 105mm or the m4 105mm, this will become the best tier 5 medium tank.

              OI-exp 105mm fires every 9 secs or so, for 300dmg, and 130 pen.

              This thing gets 104 pen for 350dmg, if you do a +25% roll from RNG, assuming you reach the total of the +25%, you got a shot that can damage up to the max of 437,5 dmg. So, one-shot party? =P

  1. Because after the jap cancer, the Tier 5 definetely needs more 300+ alpha gun. Newbies in Tier 3-4 will LOVE it.

    WG’s “balance” notion is quite something.

    1. Yes, getting two shot at tier 5 (one shot if tier 3 tank and low HP tier 4 and it highrolls) will certainly be a good lesson for new players. Then we wonder why top tier heavies camp at base :P
