    Those are the stats for the base 76mm gun....:puke1

    The 90mm upgrade gun is 240 avg dmg, 173 avg pen and 7.27 rounds per minute. It has a 4 round magazine and takes approximately 25 seconds to reload that magazine. I'm at something like 24.7 seconds with BIA and fans. The top gun on the 50-100 has more like a 50 second magazine reload.

    Thanks for the correction Brian.

    The T54E1 reloads in 30 something seconds.
    The T57 reloads in 22 seconds :deal

    I think I'm likely going to sell the E1 because of this; it is just more fun to play the T57.

    With the E1 I've been using its lower Tier gun which is 5 shots instead of 4 and 22 second reload instead of 33 - just to screw with people who assume I have 4 shots :D

    :lol3 I just noticed the chat.

    Please do tell more about the mods that I highlighted in green on your picture. Links would be awesome if you have them. They look awesome, especially the minimap.

    I installed roughnecks mod pack.....then removed all of it. Too busy for me. and neither of the boys liked it.

    I'm sticking with Jimbo's sight and advanced mini map.

    You need to try the Churchill GC, that will cure you.

    I just like the look of the roughnecks minimap. I haven't played with it yet though since I'm still at work. I don't want to change anything about my setup except for the minimap.

    I am kindof thinking that the Panther/M10 looks interesting too. My only draw back is a fair amount of the time that I see them in battle they die fairly quickly but that may just be moron drivers too...

    You can use whatever parts of it you want.

    I started with the full roughnecks.. then turned off the stuff I didn't want and then edited the stuff I did want to take advantage of the resolution I run (for example I have my teammate's names appear on the minimap - but not the enemy's names; only their tank name. That way I can address someone on my team directly if need be).

    It takes a bit of time and fiddling but once you get it figured out it is very flexible. :freaky

    Mind you.. if they keep spitting updates out at this rate it is not going to be worth the hassle to go through it over and over :( Hopefully there isn't a huge xvm revamp with 8.7 like there was with 8.6

    with that logic you'd never own a chaffee/t-50/elcamx/t-71/insert-light-suicide-scout-name-here? :huh

    all tanks usually die quickly with moron drivers.
    all tanks usually last with good players.

    don't hate the tank hate the playa'!

    I thought this game was hopeless. Capfast loss, and I'm in an AT 8 - what can I do except drive and hope.

    A friendly Leopard proceeds to suicide rush into the cap circle and stall the cap timer. Ten seconds. That's all I needed to execute a monster carry.
