Is it going to receive a buff?

As it currently has the worst stats overall of any German premium tier 5 medium

The worst Penetration, Shell velocity and Gun handling (terrible dispersion values)

Best view range in class however, but with a gun that is the worst at sniping.

Also why give it only 40 shells, barely more than the Turan III's 32 shells - T 25 gets 60 shells while the Hydrostat get 87!

Giving the Turan III and Pz.Kpfw. III Ausf. K 60 Shells capacity will not make them OP I promise . . . .

I can live with the shell capacity and the gun.  It's the manourverability that makes it [edited].  Take the most mobile tier 4 med in the game, up tier it and make it move like a heavy.  top kek.

On the holy trinity of Firepower, Mobility and Armour it fails all three.

If ever there was a poster child for a tank that needs pref MM, this is it.

That ^

Same with the AC1, I bought that knowing it sucked, but it's unique Aussie tanks with a novel machine gun cover.

I'll probably buy the Pz.Kpfw. III Ausf. K, one day because I collect German tanks. a fool and his money are easily parted - Just, why does it have to suck?

 

That being said with the fail platoon bonus and the terrible directions taken in sandbox, I'm wondering if I should continue to invest long term in this game.

The touted view range isn't even very impressive for a prem tier 5 med.

M7 and M4 Improved get 380m and 370m respectively, compared to the Pz,Kpfw. Ausf. K with 350m

 

FUN FACT! Pz V/IV is looking great these days  (just had look on tanks.gg) I think they buffed it a few patches ago.

Pz V/IV best in class (German prem med tier 5) for DPM, gun handling, view range, ammo capacity, armour AND mobility.

Not that you can find one anywhere . . .

I know someone who's got a V/IV and yeah, it's OP now.

Being a preorder tank, my understanding is that it won't ever be on sale again.
