The new OST Panther is now way better when it comes out at Vet0, which invalidates all the points you've just presented.
Vet2 bonus was BS anyway, and popcap won't matter if you don't try to spam it.
Way better how? cca 1 sec faster rof is "way better"?
Even that was compensation for removing vet 2 bonus.
U know what would be way better? To keep this faster reload and make it more accurate! I mean, its expensive, its late tier, its tank hunter, cant do anything else, if any tank deserves high acc its this one.
Only thing that you did is to make it miss faster than before and to die easier with vet. GG, yea way better, keep telling yourself that darling.
