My AC 4 needs a serious buff.Now,that isn't to say it's totally useless.Respect the gun.The gun has amazing pen(171 AP and 239 APCR) and has best camo ratings for a tier 6 medium tank.It also has a crazy top speed of 60,and some of the best gun depression in the game.However...... It has bad hp(330),(as opposed to the real thing which had a 397 hp)poor power to weight ratio and can bounce or block virtually nothing. So at least buff the horsepower,or lower the top speed.I love this tank but it needs some serious buffs

Um, the AC always had 330 horse power, from three Cadillac truck engines.  The UK had no tank engines to spare and the Australian air force couldn't give the program aircraft engines.

 

Near the end of the tank design program, they did have an idea to add four small engines to produce 410 HP.  They also had a proposal for an engine company to make one engine that could produce 600 HP.  But like I mentioned, they never left the table before the AC program was cancelled.

 

The AC 1 can bounce a fair number of shells.  But the gun that gives the AC 4 it's punch apparently makes it jump two tiers.  So the AC 4 is more of a sniper then.  The 100 octane fuel will add almost 0.6 HP/ton.

Yes please raise the power to weight...It's sooo slow. Sure, the top speed is 60, but I have never gotten to 60, even when going down hills. It's seriously so slow. 

 

 

And the gun handling isn't great so it'll still be balanced compared to the firefly.

Nobody made you buy it. Only reason to get it would be Aussie crew voices - "crikey mate, that one bounced" "s'truth she's a big one mate". No Aussie crew voices = no reason to buy. Why u no Cromwell B?

The AC-4 is a great tank, but I agree, a buff to the engine would really make it shine.

If I had my way it would be more "sporty" and a total hurr durr COD zerging machine instead of being limited to mostly TD roles, I only bought it because it is Australian. I would play it if it were not for tier 8.
