I see that the Atomic Centurion is on Personal Offer for 4,800 gold. Been debating on a Centurion premium for ages, but not sure what is considered the reigning Centurion champ. 

 

With the release of the Halloween Centurion 5/1, is the tank better or worse then the Atomic? (I’m going to negate the spaced armor of the goofy helmet as the turret armor is already pretty good.) I’m too lazy to look up the mobility and gun stets...

 

So my question: Is the Atomic Centurion still the one Centurion to rule them all? Does the Centurion 5/1 dethrone it?

They'll both be good but different enough that it's worth owning both. The Atomic has better rate of fire (8.5 vs 8.0) and mobility the Centurion 5/1 will have better frontal hull armour and accuracy ( 0.35 vs 0.33)

 

The Halloween version of the 5/1 has some spaced Armour on the turret that makes it basically impossible to pen when hull down on a Ridgeline. But it looks fugly.

That rusted out gun mantlet is what's kept me from getting the Atomic so I'm waiting on the Aussie 5/1.

If I'm not mistaken I think Atomic has better dispersion while moving/turning turret.

Yeah, 0.14 vs 0.16

Probably only funds in the till for one. Atomic seems like a winner so far. 

 

How about shell velocity? Last I remember the the Swedish Cents has the best, right?

The Atomic and 5/1 both have 1020 m/s with standard AP 1275 m/s with premium APCR

 

The Swede has 1300 m/s with standard APCR and 1400 m/s with premium APCR. The Swede does have the worst mobility of all the Centurions though.

 

Tbh, all the Centurions are good. The only one I would recommend not buying is the Huntsman as it has nothing going for it.

 

Oh, if it matters the Atomic also has the best credit earning multiplier of the premium centurions at 65%.

 

Also when comparing mobility I was comparing the Atomic to the Halloween reskin of the 5/1. The non-halloween 5/1 may have better mobility since it wont have the weight of the spaced Armour.

Both are good tanks but the Bellerophon has a 50% silver and 15% xp bonus while the Atomic has a 65% silver and 15% xp bonus. So side by side the Atomic is the better value!!

The Atomic is an awesome tank (especially if you like the TT Centurion).

We need more Centurions in game, 7 reskins is not nearly enough.

Same, it's one of the better premium tanks in the game. I'd go as far to say it's a must buy.

What’s a guy gotta do to get an Atomic personal offer around here?!

 

Played about 15 battles in tier VIII-X mediums (mostly US/UK). No Atomic offer. 

 

Play the Centennial = Offer for Panther 88. 

 

Play the FV4202 = Offer for AMX 58. 

 

Aren’t the offers triggered by playing similar vehicles to the tank on offer?? Your stupid algorithm for these personal offers are broken WGCB! :deer:

I knew it was something like that...

 

So my mastery badge in the M60 after getting the 88/58 offers wasn’t good enough?? I’m doomed. :arta:

Haven't played my 5/1 yet but the Atomic a lot. 

You just can't go wrong if you get the Atomic, it's awesome besides the accuracy on the move. It also has a much higher silver Bonus than the Bellerophon ( 65% vs 50% ) 

 

On the other hand the Bellerophon has additional 30mm spaced armor on the 254mm turret.
