As great as all these updates are, they are meaningless to me until they release the second German Tank Destroyer line. (Which was promised the end of last year *wink wink say no more*)

Glad the Russian drivers have some new toys ... just that many more I have to get for my Master Tanker ribbon. I am always short one before each vehicle addition.

I would have to agree the German TD line compared to the current Russian and American line is severely lacking. If I remember correctly the Jag Tiger is lacking by just under 200 hit points per shot, in a match it adds up fast. I feel your pain.

I personally have been a heavy tank kind of guy. I have gone up the German, American and Russian line so the last 2 patches have been good to me via 6 or 7 new tanks to play with including the making of the T30 into a TD. I must admit I have had fun with it since it was changed to a TD!

I do like the new IS-8. It's fast and has the same gun as the IS-4. Speaking of the IS-4, it is now more than a match for the E-100, IS-7 and Maus.

It seems like they nerfed the gun a wee bit but it seem's to be bouncing a lot more shots from tanks that never bounced before. I would agree it is a lot more on par with the tanks you mentioned.

Yeah...I noticed I'm bouncing shots more from the Russian line for some reason...I'm starting up the French line now...got the AMX 13 75, which I think is a great Tier 6 tank.

Since I run German tanks, who I swear shoot ping pong balls, having random bounces is quite common. I've bounced rounds off tier 6 with the 128mm a few times.
On the flipside, I've bounced 105mm Tiger II rounds off my StuG ... go figure.
