I own a Type 5 and really feel bad for the enemies who try to side scrap as a defence .. i believe , for the good of the game , that the 15cm should not have 2 types of HE.. 

 

It should have some type of AP round like the 14cm gun  282 pen / 600 damage ( needs higher velocity).. Keep the expensive HE as secondary...

 

Thoughts ?

NOPE! It was time the Japanese Heavies to have derp guns the whole line, if WoT changes it they better refund the EXP and credit from tiers 9 and 10!

I don't believe that would change anything OP. People would still use the expensive HE round. It's pretty much all that is used anyway.

You should read the post again. It talks about adding an AP shell in place of one of the 2 HE shells. It will still be a derp gun that you will use exactly the same.

I actually created an entire thread about this problem.

 

http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/589646-type-5-pay-for-damage-problem/

 

It needs one type of HE shell. The Type's premium HE is literal pay for damage. Not pay to win, but pay for damage. If it had just one middle of the road HE shell it would be fine. 

 

Unless they remove the derp entirely, but I think it's obvious it here's to stay.

This, but it'd be nice to have a few on board for overmatch situations.  But that could be done by adding it as a third round, instead of removing the stock HE round.  Because as has been said most folks would still shoot HE.

 

With that said, I tote some AP on my big derps that have it for that reason, but even then I rarely use it mainly because of reload ( when I remember because forgetting is the other reason :P ).

 

Edit:  Previous poster presents an interesting point.  Plus one.

Remove the 15cm naval HE bombardment gun

 

Type 4, give it the 15cm short howitzer from .oho. as stock gun, buff the 12.7  and  13.9cm guns 

Type 5, just buff the 13.9cm gun

 

Type 4 and 5 are really bad tanks for the game.

So are KV2, .oi.

All classes should get three ammo types.

WG likes them as they are.  However, all prem rounds are to be re-balanced.  And, it's a niche tank, leave it as it is.
