Why is the Leo A1A1 tied with the TAM 2IP considering it's not even better than the bog standard TAM?

Pondering if is there’s a reason to even spawn the A1A1 (I’m actually pondering if I should buy it) considering that both TAMs power creep it in the most meaningful areas…

It’s also louder, lacks a laser rangefinder, the ammo array is more vulnerable, etc.

If it is a matter of “player statistics”, then it’s more than confirmed than the A1A1 does perform slightly worse than both TAMs.

That being said, this is a single example is a sea of many. Pls Gaijin, raise the BR ceiling once again.

might just be one of those things brs where they expect you to play light tanks instead of mbts? I feel like some brs do that in certain tech trees
