Looks like the T29 is going to lose some of its hull down ability.

* T29:
Changed elevation degrees of 105 mm Gun T5E1 from -25 degrees to -15 degrees
Changed elevation degrees of 76 mm Gun M1A2 from -25 degrees to -15 degrees
Changed elevation degrees of 90 mm Gun M3 from -25 degrees to -15 degrees
Changed elevation degrees of 105 mm Gun T5E1 from -25 degrees to -15 degrees

Only model change, without characteristics change

Gun depression is usefull for hulldown, not elevation. So those "nerfs" are useless :Smile_trollface-3:

EDIT: funny how i got -12 for telling that elevation is not needed for hull down :Smile_trollface-3:  Hull down make T29 a very cappable tank against even tier 8 and 9 - and it's good that WG didn't nerfed gun depression. So i can live with those elevations nerfs.

old elevation:
