Give top tier tanks stock apfsds

Currently tanks like the leo 2k, m1a1, leo 2a4, m1a2, Leclerc, amx 40, and type 90 start out with Heatfs stock. This patch the stock heatfs was nerfed from 650mm to 480mm, making it a horrible stock grind for t3 or t4 mods such as apfsds shells. 

 

As if rn with these new heatfs pen values, there should be no reason to not implement stock apfsds.

Previously, HEAT-FS stock was viable, I did reasonably well with it, but now, definitely not. I'd say a lot of tanks need a different stock ammunition, and for some, just no upgraded APFSDS.

Well, I have been considering buying my yearly dose of 25000 GE during the weekend, I am glad I did not do it... I guess I will stay away from top tier for good... First downtier helicopters, now introduce more deadly choppers as premiums and nerf 120mm HEAT-FS which is stock for many NATO 120mm while leaving Soviet HEAT-FS untouched. They should nerf Soviet HEAT-FS too and make it stock round for Soviet MBTs... As usual, Gaijin makes one step from pro-Russian bias and two steps back... :facepalm:

It’s pretty clear Gaijin wants stock rounds to be as restrictive as possible. That motivates players to spend shiny birds. 
 

It’s the same reason we will never get proper US APBC performance. If we did, then there would be little inventive to pay up for APHE.

Yep, the stock heatfs was okay to grind with as you could pen weakspots reliably and could pen Russian armor, but it came with a lower velocity. Now that the pen value was dropped to 480mm, its pretty much useless, since the Russian armor (especially with kontach armor) makes this round ineffective. This makes it harder to kill tanks using weakspots as well.

"We have to gather statistics first and then we will consider which shell should be stock"

 

Yes, they said that

Unhistorical nerfs are a way to balance things for gaijin, specially if vehicles from a particular nation suffer against others. 

You can keep your sarcasm for yourself.
