The dude in the cent 7/1 got 8 kills...wondering whats going on here..
Cent 7/1 doesnt have HEAT rounds, it has APCR and two types of HESH (High Explosive Squash Head), the premium version of which are VERY high penetration HE shells which do average 480 damage. 522 sounds like a realistic high roll (and given what you're driving, the HESH shell definitely penetrated and did full damage)
My clanmate and i roll double (sometimes triple) Cent 7/1 platoons, Doing this I have a 63% win rate in that tank. We go hard aggressive in them and just ruin peoples days that way (He runs the Royal Ordinance L7A1, im not fully upgraded so Im only rocking the B Barrel, if the third person is with us he's still on the A Barrel), We just roll out one after another firing, the 20lber does little damage but fires every 4.45 seconds, which basically means you're not going anywhere unless i stop shooting you.. Which I wont... The 20lber is actually a legitimately good gun on it (albeit its not as cool as the L7) because of the aim time and spammy RoF...
My friend keeps a few HESH shells for those times he sees a WT-line German tank, Those things WRECK them.. (Like I keep an ample supply of HE in my E100 for the same purpose, Doing 1000 damage to a WT E100 and having him completely rage melt down is just SO ENJOYABLE)
Cent 7/1 is an absolutely terrifying Tier IX medium, I like it more than the T-54 at the moment (Probubly because my T-54 is completely awful stock..)Edited by KenjiS - 3/10/14 at 1:42am
