That's pretty crap for a T8 HT either way. Is it supposed to play Black Prince-style, with a dinky pew pew pew gun?

It’s effectively the pre-buff caernarvon, so the turret’s nowhere near as good as the tech tree one, and you lose out on dpm too.

Ah i get it, so they intend to do a swap right. Tech tree caern into prem, CaeAX into tree. Because WG right... To be honest i'm surprised they haven't put the worse prototype tanks into most of the trees and saved the better more logical line tanks for premiums in other lines. That being said it's potentially a free one, so there's that.

 

In any event, glad it's not going to be broken.

Not pretty gud then. Im hoping it would be good since im going for Brits HT line for mission, gotta wait for a new prem.

I know I've been saying that the 1st version of the Caernarvon (with Centurion 7 turret and 20-pdr B, before WG put the CAX turret nonsense on it)

is the most underrated tier 8 tank, and was only 400 DPM away from being a stellar tank.

 

32-pdr Caernarvon fixed that, but also put unnecessary amounts of alpha and gun clumsiness in the mix. I'd quite likely buy a Caernarvon premium if it had the 20-pdr B with 2.8k raw DPM. And a proper 'boxy' turret like that on the Centurion or even the Black Prince...but with Burster plates.

base DPM is 2.4k, which is actually much more then most other tier 8 HTs and way much better then all the tier 8 MTs

I guess, the tank should see battlefields for about a month max after event, then will be only increase garage collection.

so looking like a typical British tank.

strong turret, good gun handling, lower alpha, higher rof.

If this is a decent credit earner I may end up using it a bit.
