Draschel: let's just say the planned changes go through untouched, what do you all think. 1. 130mm UFP@60^ is already good front hull for a medium tank, currently comparable to 140 and 907. Any more is just icing on the cake. They plan to add more. They do not say as to what, but let's say it is 10mm like the 140 buff. Could be 15mm like the 121 buff. With 140mm UFP@60^ we are looking at ~262mm AP, ~283mm APCR. Not bad at all, especially if it is more with the 15mm instead. While not auto ricochet angle like CS63, it would be better than 140/907. 2. DPM is being buffed, if I am not mistaken to equal object 140 3 ,034 damage per minute. This is considerable, more than 200 DPM added on. And with 390 alpha damage not 320. 121B has an edge in fighting tanks like 260, 268V4, 279E, Chieftain - since it has 350mm HEAT not 330-340. Especially against 279E, 350 HEAT makes a big difference vs 330. 3. Nice mobility buff, adding 5km/hr both to top speed and reverse gear. 121B has among the better difficult terrain crossing stats for tier 10 medium tanks, meaning it can get through bad terrain spots pretty quickly. Miscellaneous:+++121B radioman is part loader, not commander like 140/907. This is an advantage, because loader skills aren't important compared to commander skills. All you need is safe stowage, then you jump on situational awareness. Commander needs to focus on recon, jack of all trades, Etc. Considerably more view range than 140/907. Considerably more potential damage than 140/907105mm bore size vs 100mm is an advantage, both for odd over-matches and applied module damageHas high pen HE like leopard, can be situational. 121B has fast HEAT. 140/907 have slow HEAT. ----Chinese fuel line fire woes. Holy moly guacamole. Reminds me of barbecue140 has more useful gun depression, and turret roof is protected against most over-match calibers140/907 and CS63 all have stronger camo values. While 121B has good accuracy, russian gun handling such as aim-time/dispersion are superior Maybe my opinions are farfetched and stupid. Maybe I jumped the gun. Who knows. But from what I at least see now, I think 121B joins meta and becomes a viable CW pick.
