How is the Action X Centurion?   I can get it or the Object140 soon.   More on the path of AX, but can grind my T54 too.

Obj 140. I sold my AX awhile ago. It's decent but over matched by many others at tier 10.

AX is very generic compared to the other NATO mediums at tier 10. Currently you can say that it has better turret armor than the Patton and better handling than the STB-1, the two others that have good gun depression. But now that they're buffing the Patton's turret that's out the window. They're also supposedly going to buff the Obj 140 turret (and in doing so, make the T-62a obsolete) so between the two the choice seems pretty obvious.

 

However, if you're already close to researching the AX, you might as well finish. As awkward of a place as it has in the meta, its still much more relevant than the other Centurions. And I for one am still holding out hope that if its peers are getting buffs, it may be buffed too.

The trouble is that it has a great long distance gun in a world of brawling maps. It's fun on the open maps, which we don't have enough of.

WG has it in for Brits. Maybe because historically the Centurion has been whipping Russian tanks in combat for almost 70 years.

I do like the Charioteer.  Not the best win rate, but I can carry a lot games with tops in damage with it.  Still learning the 7/1.  Brawling, yeah no good for that.  Love the gun depression to peek out and BOOM.

The AX is pretty much a support tank at top tiers.  The gun is very good (DPM is low~ish), armor on the turret is unreliable, the speed is decent, and camo...what camo?

The CAX would be MUCH more competative if only it was the size of a obj 140.

Seriously, anything can snap shot a CAX.  Its an enormous tank, for what it is.

Otherwise, its a fantastic tank.

I do better in my Cent AX than in my 140. It's fast, it has great alpha and it has great gun depression. I think it's mostly the gun depression which enables me to do better in the AX

I played my T54 and Cent 7/1 back to back and went with the AX since I like to use ridgelines to snipe from.  Russian gun depression left me depressed...    50% WR in first 10 games, see how it goes from there

object 140 is already significantly better than the Centurion Action X. Presuming the 9.20 Super test balancing comes into play the object 140 might very well become the best medium tank.

 

I'm by no means a great player, but I own or have owned every Standard  Tier X medium , excluding the E 50M, and the Cent AX is easily my least favorite to play, albeit my most favorite to look at. There are heavies with a smaller profile, it's mobility when accounted for everything is pretty meh, and it eats credits. 

 

Object 140 eats credits too thanks to the troll gun it has, but aside from the current turret overmatch, soon to be going away,  it is quicker, better came, better soft stats, and the reload time is insane. 

 

Honestly they need to do something with the Cent AX soon, especially if the 9.20 superset balancing happens, because you can argue the M48A1 is already petter, but moving to the M48A5 turret, the M48 will be unquestionably better, except when you have to rush back to cap for a reset.
