I've had the M48 for quite a while now, but I've also been wanting to buy back the M46 at some point as well. I remember loving the tier IX Patton, as it's one of those tanks that just "clicked" with me, so I was looking at its current stats just in case it was nerfed without me noticing when I saw its turret armor.

 

Has the M46 actually been given a turret that bounces shells at least somewhat reliably? I don't remember it being buffed, but at the same time I feel like its old turret armor was only something like 100mm and couldn't bounce more than the occasional shell. If the M46 actually has useable turret armor I'm going to be buying it back in a heartbeat, so I appreciate it if anyone can confirm this change and whether or not you can feel safe while hull down in it now.

So they actually did buff my favorite tier IX medium's turret armor, and it was given better accuracy as well? Thanks for posting this, I'm going to be buying back the M46 and giving it the best crew I can spare as soon as I'm on next. :great:

The gun is still troll. It has a bit of a turret, but i wouldn't say it can bounce shots reliably. Far from it.

I mean, I rarely ever had any issues with its gun trolling me and I really enjoyed the tank before, so the fact that it's more likely to bounce shots off of its turret and is a bit more accurate is a bonus more than anything. Thanks for the heads up on the turret still not being all that reliable though.
