M6A1 Heavy Tank needs a buff. WW2

#1 Post by Schmidty » Jun 02 2019

Right now a M4A1 Sherman is better than the M6A1 heavy tank. This makes zero sense at all. The M6A1 has a 76mm gun, a 37mm gun, both capable of AP and HE shells and much more armor. It also has a .50 cal mounted machine gun and .30 cal coaxial machine gun like the Sherman. Please make the M6A1 to have better stats then the M4A1 Sherman.

It does not need any buff. Although it has better guns than the M4A1 on the paper, in reality it was far from being impressive or even usable. So I don't see any point in buffing tank that was notoriously bad andhardly usable design. Especially there is no point in making it better than Sherman.

It has thicker armor and better guns. It already takes about 20 days longer overall to build and it definitely should have better stats. The Sherman was more reliable, cheaper, and better for crew survivability which are all stats not reflected in the game. The M6A1 should have betters stats than the first unlockable Sherman, the M4A1. The M6A1 should have more armor and firepower in the game bc it did in real life. Obviously the Sherman is a better tank but it is designed for different purposes. Speed, combat time, strength, fuel consumption and other stats should remain better for the Sherman.

More guns and armor does not necessery mean better stats. Size also matters and the ways crew can use these guns.
