I just got my 304, tonight and I have researched the entire vehicle, all I have to do now is accumulate enough XP to get the Crusader.  With my fully trained and 1 skill crew, I have gotten the ROF to 5.5 rounds per minute, with the top gun.  But, which gun is really better, the 25 Pounder or the 4.5 Inch Howitzer?  Your thoughts on them please.  Thank you.

4.5 does a lot more damage per shot. I often permatrack players with it till their dead.

Left to right the 25 pounder then the Howitzer.

Stick with the Howitzer. 

 

It's what make's the Bishop, FV 304 as well as the Crusader.  Note for the Crusader you have to have the top gun mounted to stun and qualify for the stun missions.

Did you enjoy the Bishop,

the accuracy, lob and damage. 4.5 inch has better damage.

 

I also keep the same gun with the CSP. The gun makes the game for me.

Having to keep up with the front line, choosing which front. The short range makes the game fun for some.

My favorite 3 are with the 4.5 inch gun.

Quality with superb accuracy, quantity with that astounding load time.

The lob speaks for itself.

Uset the one with the higher ROF. The Crusader plays the same way in that you find somewhere nearby where the heavys funnel up and just start blasting away using the high shell arc. It’s the T67 of the arty world and I felt pretty dirty playing it. Keeping someone permatracked was a breeze and I got a lot of fan mail after battles using it. 

Oh, and the 304 makes a impromptu end game suiscout when needed. 

Btw, the tier 8 is a bit of a let down personally.
