better than the stock turret since it has a mantlet. You have to be really aware of your surroundings in this tank. Showing anything but your front is death. So hull down and only poke out when you are ready.

melted a bunch of kv-2s on my way to 100 games in the arl... did have one game where i did zero damage. three kv2 on red. it was just like jurassic park, when the guy is hunting the raptors. i thought i knew... but suddenly my game was over. 

 

the tank is a really nice target if youre not playing carefully.

I remember how bad playing the M6 was as a noob. When I saw the ARL I instantly thought KV2 fodder.

Luckily the second turret is smaller than the hull it's attached to.

And it doesn't have to make runs to the post office with everyone's mail.

Wait a second both the M4 Jumbo and Conqueror do that. So not a​ common trend but the ARL isn't the only 1.

there is a couple,thing is the m4 jumbo you aren't losing anything staying with the stock turret,the ARL you have to run it to get the better guns,the conqueror I dunno anything about.

 

Now some tanks do lose a few hp in turrets,but it may be two or maybe ten at most-I could see going from sixty to say fifty five or fifty but as it stands an A20 or DW2 could rip this thing to shreds right now :amazed:

M8... You need to run the second turret on the jumbo if you want a good gun as well.

 

 If you give people easy shots at your turret then its no fault of the tank. Considering the armor profiles of the line(nice big soft sided turrets), its as good a time as any to learn to keep safe.

 

Feel free to keep the stock turret if you think that the nominal armor value is what counts.

All that gun offers is higher fire rate,to me the only reason to really get another gun is more damage and only rarely is a higher fire rate a desirable thing (like the Panther) at six the first M4's turret is amazing and so much bounces off it.

 

And some of us play aggressive which is why I like Russian tanks so much,many combine great armor with huge guns so you can get downright nasty in a fight.

I don't have it, but I would stick with the better turret, because the stock one is almost as big as the empire state building:D

So you haven't ground the FV215B line then? The conqueror top turret drops armour thickness for shape.
