  1. They mentioned they were buffing the frontal gun depression to -8 and would change the model so the gun wouldn’t clip into the hull. Calm your tits potential ragers

        1. Anti-German bias is history, dude. Just look at grille ir skorpion lol. Lets not forget upcoming Maus and faillöwe buffs.

      1. you won’t it’s german, they get 5 nerfs for every one buff and that buff is usually something that is nonsensical, like the the 10mm of added Armour to the overly soft Lowe , means absolutely nothing to the actual pen stats it will face regularly , but they can turn around and say they buff German.. commie cunts at WG. nuff said.

      1. But the height difference is minimal, so the only change, is that you will need bushs a little bit higher to camo your tank.

    1. They did not mention such change, so unless it’s a hidden one, everything should be the same.
      Feel free to correct me, I’m only going by logical deduction.

  3. Hm, this looks much more narrow, finally worth the ‘Schmalturm’ name.
    Since that literally means ‘narrow turret’.

    I actually like this new version. Though I wonder, will this change the penetration values (the new pen calculations included)?
