Burned mine,  liked it at first ....  But


.. Gun is great with the quick firing and quick reload but the small damage and the slow acceleration stole lots or the fun for me

I gave you my opinion as to why not give it another buff , but like you if I think I have a good point it will be hard to change my mind. This is not an insult but just to say if you think it is something you are right about keep up points an W G an others might start to agree an get the changes you suggest


An opinion is an opinion. Discussions require arguments. Solid arguments leads to constructive critics. I do not know if you actually have played the 13 57. I‘ve had a good amount of matches in it. I am actually happy with it‘s performance, except that - based on what I experienced - the engine could really use a 25-40% engine boost. Yes, this sounds like a lot, but the 13 57 engine has already been on the lowest end to begin with. 


The 13 57 (and of course the HMH) is equipped with the Tier V AMX B 271 engine with 250 horsepower from the Tier VI AMX 12t. The latter also has a Tier VI AMX 272 engine with 330 HP available.  This one would totally solve the issue. And since it‘s still a component of a lower tier it would most likely qualify for a premium.


edit: actually the 13 57 have got SOFAM 8 Gxb engines, but they are similar in performance to the B 271.

I'm learning to love mine.  I've never used high octane gas before even though I have a small stockpile, but when I played a few games with the 13 57's appalling acceleration I gave it a try instead of food.  The gas makes the tank good.  Lycan is still better though.

I'm not stealing kills, I'm handing out Confederate medals.
