Has anyone noticed they kinda ruined the only thing Challenger's had?

So this one is pretty simple, from what I’ve seen the single thing that the challenger’s have over their peers such as the Leopard and Abrams was their fast reload speed, but after the reload buff of the Abrams they just don’t have that edge anymore.

[as a side note this also ruined the 105 Abrams side grade effect, where before you chose reload speed or damage, but now it’s the same]
