Did this tank get any buffs in the past 6 months or so I was unaware of? I started playing with it last night again after 2 years of it sitting in my garage because I hated it (granted it was my first Tier X Medium and I wasnt very good with mediums) but man I was putting out between 2-5k a game with 3-5 kills a game. If WG ever gives us the buffs it received on people will start calling it OP lol....I somehow managed to block a Jageroo shot onto my machine gun port on top of my turret last night and got called a hacker in the process...One of the few American tanks I do not have a mark on...almost there tho!

Yeah it did. I think in 3.0-3.1. It got a reload speed buff, and something else. I'll see if I can find the patch notes for it.

Frustratingly I can't find it in the patch notes anywhere, and I think my initial guess of 3.0-3.1 is wrong. I'm pretty sure it happened this year ,January-ish?, in a balance update.

Either way, whatever happened has made the tank playable and fun again (especially with my E5's crew in it LOOOOL)

May have to put a ticket in to get it back, I put about 120 games in it hoping it would be as good as the M46. I unlocked the T57 recently so my E5s crew has been bored. Would be nice to have a tier X medium again.

My last game in it last night was a little over 5k damage and 5 kills and a Grille got lucky and lit me on fire with his shot and my crew must have been drunk or asleep cuz I used my extinguisher but it didnt stop the fire :( Oh well still won that game thanks to a STI and E-100

Just found it thanks to google. It was update 3.5, and I'm not sure why it isn't in the patch notes.

Thanks Max...do you have an idea of when or IF we will get the armor buffs PC got for it last year? More importantly the machine gun port on the top of the turret that everyone loves to go after??

48? One of the easier tanks to play. Just think.

When man invented consoles, even monkeys began to scratch their heads.                      

Bad maps and teams generate bad play and create idiots even from good people.
The nasty truth about this game starts with the people who try to hide it.

It wasn't technically an armor buff, it was given an HD collision model, and yes, we have the HD collision model also. :honoring:

Ok cool, that explains why I feel like I actually bounce shots more than when I first got it, admittedly it was my first Tier X medium and I wasnt very good with them at the time. Thanks Max!
