The big gun on the new french heavy is reading only 280 of an AP round.  I have tier VIII heavies with A LOT more pen than that.  This MUST be a bug.  If it is not, i will NOT be spending the 600K free XP to get it.  That is just laughable.  The small gun has normal pen, why not the big gun?  This tank offers NOTHING new to the game, just below average EVERYTHING like the 121B.  Learn to balance your tanks WG!!

It's not a bug, been low since the stats were first leaked. If you don't approve, then play with the smaller gun, it's probably the more viable option.

It's the design behind the gun.  Look at the pen on the E100...

 

See I try to explain these things when I'm in the clan and no one ever listened.

That seems about right for tier 8. I just looked at IS-3, T26E5, and Liberté and they have less pen than that.

Look at the non derp gun on the type 5. Also on the test server I was doing fine with 250/280 pen. Also keep in mind the gold is AP so it gets better normalization. And its a fairly large caliber on a tall tank so shooting down at people will happen a lot (aim for engine decks).

What's all the hubbub, Bub?  Looks about right.

I actually think it's a splendidly balanced tank. Not really overbearing or OP in any way yet still brings a unique flavor.

 

Basically WG accidentally did what they should have been doing with new tanks for years. End the power creep!

And funnily enough it's still getting a good amount of complaint that it's not strong enough it seems.

 

This community is hilarious.

That's because the community wants creeping tanks like the 5A and SConq every patch, and prems like the Skorp and Patriot.

Problem is that no one wants the new tanks if they dont continue the pattern so until they nerf the powercreeping tanks, people are going to be mad
