i was thinking that these tanks should have a higher view range than they currently do since how huge their cupolas are, i was thinking they should have 400 base view range as a trade off for their gigantic easy to hit Cupolas.

 

T95E2 has 390 view range and the Legion/Type 59 patton which use the same turret has 10m more view range.

Chieftain/T95 has 380 view range (tanks like the Tiger II/Variants, Lowe and the Centurion I/Variants all get 400 view range wile having smaller cupolas than these tanks)

i was just thinking that that would help these tanks a lot and make the cupola actually mean something other than a gigantic "Shoot me HERE" spot.

 

just a thought i wanted to share.

thank you for reading!

Makes sense...

It is but its not a weak spot like the three mentioned above.

 

 

Agree with them needing a little love though.

Fair enough...I dont get killed with my T110e5 through the cupola. If i do its because I get bum rushed by mediums.

The Centennial has circa 50mm on its  cupola, the T95e2 circa 75mm and the T110e5 circa 205mm with no gun depression. With gun depression - still 52-65, 80-87mm and 256mm....not really in the same league.

makes sense cause you compare tier8 cupolas with a tierX cupola

T110E5's cupola is actually only 5mm less than the Type 5's Cupola (which is 210mms) (though the type 5 heavy's cupola is 210 all around)

 

from the looks of other T10 tanks, the T110E5 has one of the thickest Cupolas (most t10 heavies look to have 91-191mms of Cupola thickness, some even have 51-71mms,)

 

(R.I.P  the Type 5 heavy (since it is one of the easiest tanks to kill if you have high enough pen or just fire premium).

It was totally a joke on the size of the E5 cupola... it’s THE weak spot for that tank. Defeats the hull down concept which is why it bothers me. 

 

Besides thickness in in this game is semi relevant when minimally sloped armor bounces shots.
