Currently the M41A1’s turret traverse is 24º/s, instead of the 36º/s it used to be, which is a value that is usually quoted to be the turret traverse of the M41A1.
The reason for this is this exact bug report: M41A1 incorrect turret rotation speed - Documented Ground Reports - War Thunder - Official Forum
In it, the technical manual of the M41 and M41A1 from July 1958 is used to say that the turret traverse of the M41A1 is wrong and should be 24º/s. Specifically, this page of the TM is pulled up.

Math provided on the forum post says that 360/15 is 24, therefore the turret traverse is 24º/s.
Among all the complaints that have existed about this specific report, there is one that has gone completely unnoticed and is probably the biggest issue of them all: the specifications provided specifically state the “Maximum time required to traverse 360 degrees”.
Why is this a problem? Well, it is a problem because had it said “minimum time”, it would mean that that would be the fastest possible powered turret traverse time. However, because it is maximum time, it actually means the exact opposite: 24º/s is the slowest possible powered turret traverse on these tanks. With that in mind, this report becomes completely faulty. There is not a single bit of information given on the actual maximum powered traverse, simply the minimum powered traverse.
What I find most ridiculous of all is that the same user that has made the bug report on the M41A1 also made bug reports on the M26 and M4A3 (76), leading to both turret traverses being nerfed from 24º/s to 21º/s. With their examples, their respective TMs specified minimum time, and said user made a point to show this, stating that this is indeed the maximum turret traverse that these tanks can do.
Response about M4A3 (76) and M26 turret traverse
But then on the M41, which has a specification sheet that specifically called for maximum time instead of minimum, dead silence. The same user that had paid so much attention to the fact that the M4A3 and M26 TMs said “minimum time”, now suddenly ignores when a TM says “maximum time”.
Makes me feel like some people just want to watch the world burn.
