Hey. 
 

just wondering if anyone else has noticed that the Caenarvon AV turret has the same in game armour as the Centurion AX at tier ten? Also that the FV4202(p) turret looks identical but has way less armour?

 

is it me...? Have just started playing this tank and I really like it. The damage is a little “meh” but it is entirely usable and more playable (especially in +1/-1 MM) than the tech tree Caenarvon.

Similar could be said about the FV 4202 (X), same turret as the tier VIII but rather more armour.

 

Pretty remarkable they kept the Caernarvon with the same as the AX really.

The AX turret in both Caerny and Cent have always been the same, apart from the view range of I remember correctly, which was  lower on the tier 8 Caerny. In the old format it was great for 8, bit started to be easily penned at X denying the Cent it's one advantage.

When they did the buff of all the turrets, they removed the AX from the Caerny completely and up-armoured it to the point that it is now pretty damned good.

The 4202 turrets meanwhile are inconsistent. They should both be the same as the AX (it was the same turret) they have given them different stats and versions in the game.
