Hi, is there a difference in terms of performance between the 3 snipers in the game?

It's still slightly slower than the Ostheer sniper, and it has slower ROF.
Compensation for being able to damage vehicles.

You can try to use Incendiary Explosive round to do a measly 50dmg to any light vehicle with IIRC, guaranteed penetration.

Like when you hit with 3 shrecks a T70 and you just need 40dmg to kill it.

- German Gewehr43 - 10 bullets, high rate of fire/kills. (1 shot 1 kill)
- Soviet used to be mosin-nagant 4 bullets, slow rate of fire. But germans complained.
Now SVT-40 sniper - 10 bullets, high rate of fire/kills.
- British use Boys .55 caliber (13.99 mm)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boys_anti-tank_rifle
which has 5 bullets, slow aim, slow reload, but also kills in 1 shot (much bigger too)
Note: Finns used it a lot during the winter war against the USSR :)

Germans bitch about the brit sniper being op, but allied snipers being both bolt,
their rate of fire was super low compared to the german one, which made sense
in context of german small squads.

A recent patch increased it's rate of fire, but it's still lower.
Not to mention it still has the 5 bullet clip to the Ge43's 10 bullet clip

Putting everything else aside... did you just call a G43 magazine a clip?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gewehr_43

The addition of a 10-round stamped-steel detachable box magazine was an improvement over the integral box magazine of the G41(W). The Gewehr 43 was intended, like the G41, to be loaded using 5-round stripper clips without removing the magazine.[citation needed] Soldiers armed with the weapon typically carried one standard stripper clip pouch and a Gewehr 43 pouch with two spare magazines.

Hmm. Box, Magazine, and Clip are all used here.
I'm half expecting to find feed belt at this point.
