Does the spall liner (or other modules) effect the speed and maneuverability of the tank?

Honestly, who would -1 a question someone genuinely wants answered? But yes, they do add weight to the tank so therefore, it does lose some acceleration and maneuverability.

Very little. German heavies already have bad acceleration so you wont even notice a slight decrease HEHEHE. More engine power, better acceleration; more weight, less acceleration. So, adding Spall liners (very heavy) will reduce your acceleration ability. Acceleration is based on your engine power-per-ton (tank weight). Spall liner is good for Tier 8+ heavy tanks. If people start spamming you with HE then spall liner is a must no matter what. ;)

Lmao well i shall give you a 1+ it's the first one i'ved ever used lol

Sorry back on topic though . Yes it never even dawned on me the modules would affect your maneuverability allthough all my tanks run three modules.

So i figure i'm never going to notice the difference in the maneuverability.

So does spall liner make a significant improvement in survivability? Is it worth it?

I run a spall liner on my tiger and i think it helps but thiers others that say it's not going to protect your modules at all for the 15% boost it gives in he protection .

I'm going to wait for the next patch and try running without it and see if there is a difference or not .

the liner does protect you considerably from high damage HE rounds, like 152mm rounds and arty shells, since 15% off the 900 some odd damage can save your ass.
