  1. dont joke about op bulldog. In VIII it has worse gun handling than at this moment in tier VII. So it’s not gonna be op.


    1. I already said It’s fine above. It was OP before, now it’s simply a tradeoff for having the ability to shred everything if you get close to it. The alternative single-shot gun was better in general use imo and I’m fine with them nerfing the autoloader a bit to make the choice more of a choice than a meta thing. Obviously, I expect the single shot gun to be much better handling, as it should be.


    2. The gun handling is actually better than on liveserver. Only the aimtimestat is worse. However, it can now mount a gun rammer to get the reload to 30secs.


  2. curent live server in tier VII Bulldog: aim time 2.01s, dispersion at 100m 0.38, reload of clip 34.5s so yeh, it’s the same. Really?


    1. Also in tier VII it has 72km/h top speed. So therealisnes really drunk if he see the same stats as in sandbox as tier VIII.


      1. Uninstall your mods, right click on the gun and check the characteristics and you will be able to see that they are exactly the same as the stats listed here. Also I was only talking about the GUN stats, maybe you should get glasses or something to impore your sight.


            1. he is even to stupid to check it on because you can check the base values too.

              0.40 acc and 2.1 aim on who would have thought


    2. Maybe you should look up the difference between base and effective stats.

      Stats shown in this post are base stats – 100% crew WITHOUT commander’s bonus applied. They exactly match live base stats).

      Stats shown on (if you don’t change it to show base stats), in garage are all effective stats – 100% crew (or more with bia/vents etc) WITH commander’s bonus and all other bonuses applied applied – that means loader, gunner all have 110% (more with bia etc).

  3. So T7 Bulldog with that autoloader is OP, but T8 Bulldog which gets into the same T8-10 games as T7 Bulldog isn’t OP. Seems fine to me…


    1. As much as I despise that they ever gave the Bulldog an autoloader, 210 premium pen against tier X just won’t cut it with this gun handling. I hope this means the single-shot gun will have 250mm HEAT pen.


    2. its just the same MM but more HP M41…and with the new MM 3-5-7 now M41 have more chance to see tier 6 and 7…its actually a buff


  4. I am annoyed that the Bulldog gets -10 depression with an AUTOLOADER, that is a large and complex mechanism, whereas the hand-loaded M 41 90mm gun is the same gun with a different bore and yet it only has -8…


      1. AFAIK, the M41 Bulldog on the live server currently gets (and always has gotten) -10 gun depression with the single-shot gun, but the autoloader only gets -8.


        1. Yes, my mistake, you are correct.

          Still, it’s the same gun with some of the length taken off and changed bore size…the only reason the depression would be affected is if the breech was much larger.


          1. I would assume the breech would’ve been at least somewhat larger IRL – note how much taller the roof of the T49’s stock (historical) turret is, which I’d assume was done in order to allow the gun to depress the same distance (as well as fitting the new rangefinding equipment and such).

            However, if this wasn’t the case, I would assume it was done for reasons of “game balance” – note how the RU 251 only gets its full -10 gun depression over the sides, while having -5 over the front and having to aim up when facing rearwards. I put “game balance” in quotations there because I really don’t think the tank having -10 gun depression would’ve made it overpowered – it’s quite a bit taller than the RU, after all, not to mention its slightly lower health pool – but this tank was made before Wargaming’s mindset on premium tanks (where they had to be slightly worse than regular ones) changed to how it is now (where they can – and should – be on-par), so who knows.


  5. So the bulldog will now face tier 10 more often, but it gets a nerf to its autoloader?

    I am glad it got to keep the autoloader, but the increased alpha on the standard shot- gun may be more competitive now.


      1. The fuck are you smoking? Light tanks are getting normal MM…IE the bulldog will now see tier 6/7/8/9/10 in equal measures.
