Ok the 105mm gun of the sherman5(gonna call it the m5/1.c because its a sherman 1.c hybrid from this point on) has a dispersion at 100m of .555 on a 105mm!??

While the deathstars 183mm gun has .384 dispersion at 100m.... 

Why.. How... 

Is it due the small size of the m5/1.c's turrent...

... Then why does the fire fly have such better accuracy on its 17 pounder which barely fits into the turrent and leaves the turrent crew is a horrible posistion.... Surley the 105 doesnt have as long of a breach as the 17pdr gun...

 

So what was wg thinking when they gave a howitzer that is 78mm smaller then the 183 much worse accuracy... The 183s gun is like a sniper to the m5/1.cs howitzer.....

Again.. Why...

The 183 was designed to kill tanks (IS-3s) and not shoot HE shells in a target's general direction (irl). This is evidenced by the shorter barrel of the 105mm (lower shell velocity and accuracy --> less time the shell spends in the barrel) compared to the 183's far longer barrel, and resulting calber (caliber is the barrel length divided by barrel size).

brev, look at the barrel length of the 183. now ask yourself this: which is more accurate? a snub-nose revolver or a rifle firing the a much larger caliber. you also have to compensate for velocity. compare the 105mm Sherman gun and the massive 183 shell, much better velocity makes it way more accurate. now because it is a game you have to make it balanced. would you rather have a sniping tank like the 183 with long reloads and good accuracy or a short reload 105mm that's perfectly capable. i can ramble on but your question wasn't well thought out. o7.
