  1. man, what the hell, only 10 mm extra pen for t32? can’t they make it to 220mm pen and be done with it?

  2. Why do the KV-3 and KV-4 get frontal armor buffs? It was more than plenty imo.
    Sure if the weak spots stay the same. otherwise i do not see the reason.
    For the KV-3 maybe, KV-4 armor was good enough.

    T32: Yeah any buffs on that are MORE than welcome! 🙂
    especially the penetration buff.

    1. Yeah the 103 badly needs a buff to its turret cheeks and also a buff to the roof so tanks stop overmatching it. The tank already has a hatch on top so WG needs to fix the roof to stop shells from penning there.

      1. Until they fix the turret on the M103 it will remain a garbage tank. That armor stats for that sloped curvy roof are the downfall of that tank and why I lick my lips in anticipation when I go up against it.

  3. balance? they buff the Soviet 122m to 217mm of penetration and the T32 stays at 208mm? how is that balanced when the Soviet HTs not only got a huge pen buff (175mm » 217mm = +42mm) as well as armor buffs while the T32 remains with the same armor and its penetration was only buffed by 10mm?

    maybe someone has to remember them that Soviet HTs had less pen because their ALPHA is much higher, to have some kind of logic the T32 would get 218mm of pen (+20mm) and the Soviet 122m D-25T would be buffed to 205mm (+30mm), that way it would make sense

    1. Soviet tier 7 and 8 heavies don’t have the amazing turret of the T32. Besides, they only buffed the D-25T 122 mm gun because it is the stock gun on the IS4, a freaking tier 10 tank.

  4. T32 still has turret impervious to about everything even tier Xs. Also keep in mind how T32 RoF increases, With rammer it should be about 7s for 320 alpha? I’ll take that everytime!

  5. ….still tier 8 tank T95E2 with pene 181 and alfa 240 is ridiculous…including huge frontal weakspots and otherwise paper armor

    I say “Buff them all”

    All wheelchairs need autoloader guns which goes well with improved autoaim..And their penetartion higher than regular medium tanks…

  6. KV3 and KV4 lack gun depression, T32 has OP turret and great gun depression…and btw WG makes no sense…when fixing game by breaking it even more

  7. first of all one recommendation:

    READ THE WHOLE COMMENT, I am not against buffing the D-25T I only question the balance of buffing it to 217mm

    THE MAIN REASON AS TO WHY IT MAKES NO SENSE

    the D-25T is not the TOP GUN for the KV-4, the KV-4 top gun is the 107mm with 220+mm of pen, while the IS-3 has the BL-9 also with over 220mm of pen

    AND THE QUESTION IS

    how can it be BALANCED when the “GRIND GUN” for the KV-4 and IS-3 has higher pen than the TOP GUN FOR THE SAME TIER T32?

    ANSWER

    IT CANNOT

    so, IS IT BALANCED?

    also, if the Soviet Tier 7 HTs had turrets as strong as the Tier 8 T32 on top of having the highest non-DERP alpha guns in the Tier, there would be no hope for WoT and the simple fact you complained about that descredits your opinion, there’s a reason why some tanks are at higher Tier than others………..
    and FYI the T32 isn’t just a massive turret, very few are the players that are capable of using the T32 to its max strength, then again sitting back at a ridgeline only showing the turret with some miserable 198mm or 208mm of pen (after the balance) at Tier 8 isn’t really effective, at that Tier only the Chinese HT has similar pen (200mm) but only because it is a “brawler” and its armor allows it to get close enough so that its 200mm of pen are effective

  8. “Decreased dispersion during gun traverse of the T97E1 suspension from 0,22 m to 0,22 m”…. Oh well…
