We also need some more mid tier US prems in the garage to buy with gold. I would personally LOVE to see the Jumbo with the stock turret and derp as a tier 6 prem :D

T20 - Tier 6.

 

Remove 90mm M3. Top gun would be 76mm M1A2. It'd essentially be an M4A3E8 alternative.

 

M26 - Tier 7

 

Remove T15E2M2, remove M45 turret. Top gun would be 90mm M3. Slight reductions to mobility. No neutral steering. Ford GAF as the top engine.

 

M47 - Tier 8

 

90mm M36 as the top gun.

 

M48 - Tier 9

 

Pretty much the same as it is now with mobility, ROF and gun-handling nerfs.

 

M60A1 - Tier 10

 

Tier 8 Premiums:

 

T42

M46 Tiger

 

The entire Patton lineage in one neat little package.

I bumped this thread in honor of the leaked info on two additional German heavies.

I would just like to say:  WELL DONE WITH THE RESEARCH..

 

I would love it if WG did any of your suggestions to the US Mediums.  It is one of my favorite lines to play, even though most of the tanks suck until you get the research elements completed.

So here we are, almost a year and a half past when I first started this. I am sorry I have not posted in awhile or kept this updated (currently not much more I can add to this).

 

We have another year ahead of us here. To which HOPEFULLY this is the year they do something! So keep strong warriors, keep bringing this topic up to Minsk and the crew! The data is here let's use it! 

 

I wll try to update this here to the 2017 themes here soon, and we will make American Medium tanks great again! :p

If it is not something the Russians want, that means we won't get it. Plus WGNA doesn't seem to pass suggestions or feedback along to Minsk.

We still need the M60A1 has a tech tree vehicle.
I know America lack HTs but we do have the MTs to be able to fix this lines.

There are enough candidates to fix the heavy lines as well. Just off the top of my head:

 

Tier 8:   T29,          T32,          Chrysler K

Tier 9:   T34,         M103,        T110E5

Tier 10: T30,     T57 Heavy,   T96 Heavy

 

This gives you three distinct playstyles (slow and hard hitting with great armor, average to autoloader, and quick heavium line), which would be nice instead of more or less one single US heavy line. And the T96 Heavy was an offshoot of the T95 medium, and is what killed the T110E5 project. So given how unhistorical the T110E5 is now, rebalancing it as a tier 9 heavium (think something like a British Chieftain) would make sense. But sadly, no.

I'm guessing the T96 Heavy using the T123E6 120 mm gun because the mod British 120mm smooth bore gun is out of the picture of WG. If I remember it had 3 gun options: 105mm smooth bore, mod British 120mm smooth bore, and the T123E6 120mm gun.

The British have never used a 120mm smoothbore cannon, all of the British 120mm cannons were rifled. So yes, the T96 Heavy could in fact get the 120mm L11.

Thanks for all the research that this took....I've pretty much given up on the US line. (yes there are some tanks and TDs that are good, but as many have said, after 3 long years power creep as sapped the line of any life it had) I love it, but they are, on the whole, just not that competitive for the average player.

 

I remember when the US line could at least hold its own, but anymore, you just don't play it if you want a good game. The Pershing/Patton line has always been my favorite, but its just foo hard to make anything work well without a really good team behind you, and we all know how well Random Battles fills out a game. :facepalm:

 

Everyone here has made good suggestions, but to be honest, after the lack of love the US mediums have had, ANY change would probably be for the better. WG better start showing that it wants the NA market, because truthfully, I play maybe once a week now (I have 1/2 the battles most posters have, and look at my join date) when I used to play at least 4 times a week, job permitting. I have marks on tank barrels, but they're on Russian tanks, not US. (hint hint, nug nug...know what I mean?)

 

Speaking for all the absolutely dead average, 50% players out there, this is a good idea presented here and way, way too long in being implemented.
