Which gun do you prefer. So far did two games with the monster gun and reload was rough. 128 hits faster, but less alpha. 

 

So far leaning 128.

The 12.8 is the far superior gun if you want to be competitive and play to the tanks strengths. It has the accuracy to sit back and snipe well beyond anyone’s capacity to spot you. The 15 cm while fun isn’t really suited to the borsig unless you are in a city type situation where you can peak a boom.

 

Ask me how to join -HOW- 2nd armored Hell on Wheels

12.8 unless you want to fire HEAT and have worse velocity.

 

You're better off putting two shells through a tank faster and doing almost 1,000 damage as opposed to putting one through for 750 with a greater chance of bouncing or missing.


If I only had a Baneblade....

12.8 is my choice on the Borsig. Has great accuracy, average damage, aim time, and handling. It's a reliable choice for consistent high damage games and clutch long distance snapshots

If you want to reliably aim for weak spots beyond 100 meters and know you're going to hit what you're aiming at then run the 12.8.  If you want to derp someone in a town and be required to run HEAT for 50% of your shots on open maps run the 15.  

That being said, the 15 was fun but it's not the serious choice for the borsig.  Once you get the baby waffle the 15 gets better but still isn't as good as the 12.8 due to slightly worse accuracy and pen.

if the short gun allowed more mobility than it does, then it might change things for me cos i like to relocate but it has to be the 12.8 all the way. 15cm is fun but its derpiness lets the tank down

15CM all the way.  I usually get + coins after at least two HEAT round hits.  It's fun to see TIER 8 tanks evaporate after one shot.  Then you can dilly dally with the AP or HE.  I have 1 MOE and didn't really try to hard.  I elited in no time at all.

The reloading of the last pack is definitely too slow, there is nothing to do with it.

I use Google translator for english language

Lots of juggling in french text, sometimes translator in trouble with that. If you do not understand what I write, tell me.

I've been rolling out for over four years and still can't decide. As one of the previous posters pointed out, 128mm for ranged work and 15cm for the in your face derpisms. If you knew which map was up next, you would change the gun accordingly beforehand.

I personally run the 15cm and run the tank like a medium. It is a boss if you have a big strong heavy to block for you, but don't attempt to snipe with this barrel unless your timing is on point.

Yes it’s one sacrifice I hate making in this game however sometimes it’s an easy decision like the kv-85 has little armor/hp to get too close early in the game unless you can scrape & of course the 122 is has a crazy aimtime and a bit worse accuracy. Dpm: 100>122

15cm if you're used to it, otherwise 12.8 is easier to use.
