Front Armor of the churchill is not that thick compare to other heavy, only rear armor and HP is stand out but it is a part of slow - damage sponge at grenade range design.

I think the durability of the churchill shouldn't be touched but at the same time torn down it's AT capable will work. With lower pen, churchill will not going to stand alone again heavier tank but with proper AT support, it still can fulfill it role as damage sponge and anti infantry - infantry support tank.

Furthermore, i'm thinking of some upgrade like "close support tank" for the churchill, give it HE shell with Sherman's HE profile. Basically turn the churchill into an anti infantry specialist but no longer a threat to armor.

Historically, Churchill "close support" is fitted with 94mm howitzer to fire mainly HE and smoke shell.

Add a limit of 2 to the Churchill, add a limit of 2 to the Panther.

Problem solved.

While i'm totally fine with this, i'm not sure how panther spammers will react, LOL. Still, add a fix limit to everything is not a solution.

The absurd amount of tankyness or its decent penetration needs to go down. There is actually no real counter to churchill spam. Why ? Lets have a look.

>ATG spam -> Gets 2 shotted

>Panzergren/Panzerfusi x2 schreck spam -> Churchill is here to counter infantry so this doesn't work either

>Panther spam -> Probably the best option but still too costly and ineffective

>Heavies -> Goodluck with your limited to 1 Tiger Ace trying to be the hero

Seem like L2P issue to me since you dont know what is the meaning of "combine arms".

Spam only 1 unit and expect it to work? I dont think so. Event churchill cant wotk without at least proper AT support.

By the way, with that logic, there is actually no real counter for panther spam :v

The thing is panther spam is vulnerable to infantry spam churchill spam isn't. And also I know what combined arms is. Was jsut giving examples. Watch the first "Balance Matches" from tightropes channel. OST is just doomed by the churchill spam even with his x2 panzergrens x2 P4s x1 stug (and x1 atg if i remember corretly). I know you like the Brits but churchill is absurd in its current state and it is the reason why comet is not used.

And i'm proposing decrease churchill's AT capable so it can no longer be spam as you can see.
At the same time, by anyway, takings away churchill's durability will prevent it from doing the only jod it good at, the job that it's designed for and i'm strongly against that.

Please take a look at my ideas above.

Agreed or as another way make it a potent Tiger like tank but limit it to 1.

I maintain that if comet and Churchill were limited to 1 and balanced according the UKF would be all the better for it. And before some goes "BUT PANTHERS!" fuck off. We're talking about ukf and can address panthers when we get there

:gimpy: Churchill needs more nerfs. Just came back from watching the Banace preview tournament and that Churchill spam was so OP

Right now it can hold off a panther, while costing less fuel and being able to beat up infantry

I would suggest reducing the main gun’s AOE damage so that it can continue to fight panthers on even terms, but can’t slaugher infantry afterwards.


Wehr late game just suck and dont scale well. 1 Elefant cant stop Churchill spam.

Wehr doesnt get P47 or Armor overwatch and that UKF one. Their stuka air strike is less damaging.

Bascially Panther should at least put a good fight against Churchill. But it doesnt

Simply now AT Gun or TD zone out Panthers for Churchill push.

Makes no sense Churchill can hit Panther for same 160 damage due to Panther poor rear armor. If you watch the KV1 hull down vs Panther. 100 pen vs 260 armor, and it was ugly for Panther. Showing some stats are better than others.

Range > Armor.

USF,UKF,Sov have strong TD vet bonus.

Panther gets inconseqential armor skirts at current values.

Like i said, rebalance Panther armor so that it decrease rear armor pen from non-TD non-premium med at max range. Give Panther a moving accuracy vet.

Now, this is the UKF thread, since there are not many people who actually care about the faction, please crying about panther un others thread.

I love it when wehraboos cling to the total RNG that was Tightrope's Hulldown KV-1 showcase as 'evidence' of Panther being 'weak'. If you even park the panther in front of the KV like that you deserve to lose it.

More on-topic, I'd also favor a nerf to AT performance.
