My point was about "fire it up" and "flares"
I am all about making the units different and useful.
On the other hand your suggestion are to buff both units. Cloning units across factions with different designs has been proven that it does not work.
Unless their price goes also up (185-200?) and require more teching both 76 and Easy8 would be OP.
Actually what I had suggested about the 76mm was to make it similar to normal Sherman but having an AP round option instead of HE. That would make it different and useful leaving room for both Sherman to be built.
My suggestion are not to straight up buff or clone any unit. Im trying to make both doctrinal sherman variants into useful distinct units. When i said "comet like" i didnt mean to literally copy its stats, rather to make it perform at the same level, "premium medium tank". And of course i thought the price going up accordingly is obvious so i didnt mention it...
The main problem here is that usf doesnt need any more tank destroyers and thats pretty much what 76mm is, a weak tank destroyer. USF lacks standard medium tank (one that has good survivability and good performance vs all targets) and premium medium tank (one that could engage panther 1v1 and kill p4 with relative ease)
