Now if you want to talk the M1A1, if you ever looked at a M4 recently you'd realize the Panzer IV Ausf. H with 100% fires it's L/48 at 15 RPM to the M1A1's 14.29 RPM on the Sherman(Again, at 100% crew).
Damage? Fine, it hits harder when it hits, however the Panzer IV still has more DPM
We can keep going with this, how the M4 has this so and so stat that makes it better in this condition, or the Panzer IV has this so and so stat that makes it better under this condition, this hidden stat gives either tank this advantage in the right spot etc. Something you're going to have to realize is regardless of whatever argument you come up with next, the Panzer IV is balanced with the other medium tanks with it's strengths and it's flaws. So if it's balanced as a medium tank, it has no place being compared to a heavy tank. So you have 2 options here:
1. Sell it and move on to better tanks, many Pz4 veterans did in protest and now they refuse to speak of it or regard the change with bitter rage. This won't change what it is now and no begging for the L/70 back is going to help.
2. Embrace it for what it is and keep on tanking, like I did
