The 76mm gun on the A-20 now has 200 HE penetration, compared to its 105mm of HEAT pen and 80mm of AP pen. Do yourself a favor and pick it up if you don't already have it.

 

Edit: Yeah, I guess I'm dumb. Was looking at damage and not pen. Both HE and HEAT have 95 pen.

I rarely play low tiers, but yesterday someone asked me to platoon in tier 4 and we faced a PRAMO platoon, both of them with A-20s. I was surprised that PRAMO is playing tier 4 but this explains it.

Unless I'm missing something the A-20 doesn't have a 75mm gun. It does have a 76mm but only has 95mm of pen, not 200.

I would still rather the 37mm autoloader. The 76mm gun is tonnes of fun but I find it weird to play now. To anyone seeing this, and if you'd like a t49, get used to this thing. Except the t49 has to look for weak spots because at tier 8 armor is a thing that exists. 

Tip! Use calibrated shells on guns with high HE pen over the gun rammer. The A-20 can be such an amazing example, that goes up to 105mm of he pen, and best of all, it's 56 credits and somewhat more effective than the heat rounds cuz it can do splash damage. With calibrated shells you can melt pretty much any tier 5 frontally (except the at2, the PZ V/IV and I think the t14).

 

 

Best way to combat an a20? Just shoot it lol it's easy to kill

95 pen of HE in tier4 is already defying logic.

thats 5 short of what the HEP does in my tier8 lekpz of derpy fame.

 

Maybe ill go down play a game or two, tier4  lttb with derp HE definitively sounds like fun.

But wasn't it 115 pen before? They dropped it to 95 (105 with calibrated shells)

As seen getting lucky on Littlefinger101 Youtube channel

Wg is horrible at balance anymore. It's now a tier 4 smasher. Oh btw see another smasher roll about 6k damage in tier 7/8 for like the third time ...
