Hey howdy tankers, WG,
I would like to say that I am pleased with the new Type 5 Heavy, its new gun, and improved armor.
But I have noticed that it needs a little bit more love(imo). For starters, the penetration on the 15 cm/45 41st Year Type gun is quite low, causing it to get only 390-440 damage-per-shot, unless you hit a weakly armored tank or weakspot. But since your accuracy is a horrible 0.5, you have a very high chance of missing, thus wasting your shots more often, and racking up a high repair bill. Even the 183 mm gun on the FV215B 183 has much better accuracy at 0.38. And that's a 183 mm gun! And its HE rounds have much better penetration (HE, not HESH folks). And then the other issue is, because of the high likelihood of missed shots and low, damage-per-shot, the economy of the Type 5 is rather awful. So I would say increase its accuracy and penetration to allow it more fluidity and dynamic gameplay.
So let me know what you think.
