Below are the planned changes to vehicle Battle Ratings for both Aviation and Ground forces, due to take effect on the 29th December 2016.

M4A3 (76) W* - This is the Japanese version of the M4A3 and has been raised in BR to match the American variant at 5.3 so both have equal BR.

I can't believe you actually raised the M4A3 (76) W to 5.3. Do American tanks not suffer enough?

 

Its not the American M4A3 (76), its the Japanese JSDF M4A3 (76)to match the US one (Japanese one was previously lower than the US version of the same tank).

 

The American M4A3 76 is already at 5.3 and has not been changed.

but contrary to the american M4A3 the japanese can`t mount the additional armor upgrade so it will be worse than the american at the same BR.

The Vampire is doing better statistically and economically than most of the 8.0 jets and 7.0 jets. So 7.3 is more than fair and was actually the suggested change based on community feedback last time. Your opinion on whats best may vary, however its performance is not the only factor.

Good changes! Vampire to be moved to 7.3 made me extremely happy :) 

 

Could you please also think about the F-80? Currently, it's suffering at 8.0 

 

It doesn't perform very well against top tier jets (MiG-17, MiG-15bis, CL-13 etc...)

 

My suggestion: 7.7 BR (not 7.0!)

The changes are really good! I think that there are still some aircraft that can be uptiered that haven't been mentioned at all, such as the Ki-44-II series, and P-51D series, especially the D-30. Aircraft such as late Ki-84s, and late Ki-61s could do with decreases in BRs as well.

Also, the P-47Ds should be at the same BR, considering their only difference is some rockets. I disagree with the Yak-3P BR increase, I'd rather the Yak-3 vanilla went up instead.

The add on Armour is an optional upgrade and one of the last ones available to unlock at that. 17mms of minor Armour add on difference does not really warrant a 0.3 BR difference when the tank is performing every bit as well as its American counterpart.

Hmm Sherman II 3.7, it's start.

 

Remove the unhistorical APCR and put it at 3.3 like the American M4A1

 

If its unhistorical, then please submit a bug report with the evidence so it can be corrected.

7.3 is still better than 8.0 for the Vampire

Not according to how well its doing on multiple levels. Performance alone has never been the only factor for BRs.

 

As I said, not to mention 7.3 was the average BR suggested by the community last BR update for the Vampire.

Hard to prove a negative, there are no records of British using APCR in 75mm guns because, well we didn't use them. How am I supposed to provide evidence of something that never existed? All I can do is dig up ammunition issues of regular ammo.

 

Only APCR in British service was an experimental 6pdr round that then led to APDS. edit: We did have APCR for the 37mm ans 2pdr Littlejohn adaptor.

This kind of report has been done in the past by others. Provide a Maintenance or Crew manual that details the load out for the vehicle. That should be sufficient. Cheers

If only spesific ammunition types would have been used, there would be records or stock calculations for evidence of that. Orders restricting ammunition types etc.

 

However considering the gun was capable of firing it, much like its American counterpart, its hardly unhistorical.

Wow Sturer Emil down to 5.7? Would have liked to see the M36 go down to 5.7 as well.

I think the AB rate change for Reppu is fair ONLY if you rework sligthly the flight model... in his biography Saburo Sakai describes Reppu as nearly as manoeuvrable as Zero figther.

I understand it cannot be really as manoeuvrable as Zero because of higher mass (and so inertia) but a little improvement is needed for sure in game.

Another way to balance a BR increase without FM rework would be a slight decrease of repair cost (10%?)

 

About B34: I was expecting an increase, but I would have started with a 0.3 just to see how it goes.

Only because people are afraid of whole 1.0 BR change.
P80 and F84 are still alot better jets, Vamp can only turn better, and thats it. That is also why its statistics are good, people dont know how to play the damn game.

But whatever, this is a step in right direction anyways.

Now again, wheres that D30 uptier. It has to be done, its 5.7 plane at 4.7
