Why is its main gun so much weaker now than before, as well as its armor? It also seems like it's more inaccurate. It used to be that the Grant could take out most German tanks in one shot, now it's the other way around. The Grant was supposed to be the most powerful tank in the desert until the PzIV arrived.

Refer to this post made by [COLOR=darkorange]Anlushac11[/COLOR] a while back

3) The Grant was a big shock to the Germans in 1942. The PzIII was suddenly outgunned and the Germans suffered heavy losses, losses they could not easily replace. 4) The Grant and Sherman 75mm round will easily penetrate the earlier standard armor PzIII's and PzIV's. Later uparmored models should hold up better. PzIV never did address the weak turret face armor so it was a liability til end of war or unless field modifications were made.

If we're worried about maps being unbalanced because the Grant is too good, then just put fewer of them in the maps. So what's the deal?

yes, it seemed to be much weaker now, people just are too upset of that ...

it often bounce off the front armour of pzIII, and often don't 1 hit kill, while panzer III could easily 1 kit kill it (Late version).

in 2.0 I think I saw the germans win like 2 times in Operation Aberdeen, now in 2.15 I have never seen the british win. all due to the grants. but if the grant is now what it's supposed to be, and was IRL, then of course it should stay so.

well the grant gun do 60% damage to front of a pzIII if it hit and not bounce off. not really bad if fighting short barreled pzIII which need at least 2 shots to kill a grant (in front), the long barrel pzIII is superior to grant ... but still same armour.

not to mention the grant actually got another 37mm gun...one grant might not be too much, but a few grants are gonna cause troubles!

But IRL the Grant was superior to the PzIII, but not the PzIv.
