Batchat 155 platoons would be the SHIT They'd have the firepower of an entire team composed of KV-2s firing in battery
Firstly, I wouldn't be sure about 6 155mm shells. I heard something about 3 round drum. Keep on mind that for example KV's (undersized due to the recoil issues) round weights about 50 kilograms already. I can't see an ammo drum which can hold 700kg worth of ammo and spin, loading it in. Secondly, French arty will be the most delightful counterarty target ever. They either won't be able to relocate, as that will fuck up their precision and they will have to wait to aim and completely lose the advantage of the drum, or the will shoot from one position repeatedly, giving you a wonderful message about where they are and where they gonna STAY. With arty like S-51, you usually shoot, relocate, and aim, and shoot at the moment your new shell reloads. Drum loaded arty simply can't do that.

Another thing is that the revolving artillery gonna shoot the revolver clip and can go make a coffee or have a quick wank before the drum reloads again.
Anyone got any good mods? I haven't updated anything since 7.2 released and I'm missing some of the better reticle and sight mods.

As it is we have to rely on them for help with high tier heavies, and help with killing enemy artillery, and rarely ever do they. "Why waste time counter-artying and securing my teams victory, when I can drop a 203mm shell on that 1/3 health stock tiger tank!"

I imagine as long as it isn't spotted and locked on before the end of it's drum, it will be a nice mobile arty unit.
And then it ends up being a horrendously OP tank if it ever goes into TD mode
[QUOTE=scout1;35723968]And then it ends up being a horrendously OP tank if it ever goes into TD mode[/QUOTE] I bet its going to have ridiculous aim time/accuracy loss with movement to compensate for the RoF so probably not
If it has ridiculous aim time there'll be little reason to have it be an autoloading arty. So yeah, it's going to be a beast TD.

I will TDmode that beast.
Will be so glad when Province fucks off in 7.3

It's on a French designed chassis that's heavily based on the M46 the USA sent them. It's not going to be that mobile.

Get that territory lads!
No one except our platoon had even 1000 efficiency. [thumb]http://horobox.reager.org/u/Orkel_1335534986.jpg[/thumb] "we're pissing in a sea of piss here"
[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/nmkIc.jpg[/IMG] First time it ever happened to me, and it happened twice yesterday. IS-3's ain't got shit.
Did you slaughter them?
I just took on a KT and a VK4502 A, both at full health, alone in the Tiger P. I killed the VK and brought the KT down to 400 health before I was killed by a T32 gotta love that frontal armor
HOLY FUCK FP IS FINALLY BACK anyway we lost all the clan battles that mattered tonight
Won a couple good ones though, including a hilarious match against a group that tried to spam us with T110s and discovered they were terrible drivers. Watching one of them facehug CrashJr's IS-7 and ding like 5 shots was as funny to watch as it was painful. [editline]27th April 2012[/editline] Also my friend keeps asking what tanks we need to win a clan match and I have to revise my answer every time. Apparently now E-100's are in?
[QUOTE=Raidyr;35726651] Also my friend keeps asking what tanks we need to win a clan match and I have to revise my answer every time. Apparently now E-100's are in?[/QUOTE] Only with gold rounds. Ever.
[QUOTE=CG-105;35726916]Only with gold rounds. Ever.[/QUOTE] Orkel might disagree
Orkel apparently sends all t10 heavies to school with his E-100. It's just hard thing to play but I dare to say very dangerous in the right hands.
I'm getting ammo racked almost every match in my T-43. Help.
[QUOTE=Awesomecaek;35726977]Orkel apparently sends all t10 heavies to school with his E-100.

Trying to shoot an IS7 in the front with standard rounds feels like an exercise in futility every time I try :P
I believe someone linked a waybackmachine link of japanese tanks and small arms? If anyone has that n hand could they relink it?
Welp, after not playing since just after the American tree was introduced into the beta, I'm getting back into the game. Shame my old account can't be used. I can only imagine how much gold I had hoarded. Germany4lyfe

They dinged 3 shots off my M103, and took 9 shots to kill me. Meanwhile I did around 175+% damage spread out across 4 T110's
