17pdr is a lovely gun for its tier but its HE is sub-par :-/

I understand that. Feel the same way about the KV-4 topgun. That 107 ZiS 24 is amazing, but the HE is lackluster.

Yeah, yeah, yeah another Alecto replay. But this is different. Playing a tier IV in a battle tier VI game on Sand River with almost no light tanks. The Alecto had to spot and snipe in a tense and stealthy encounter. Not massively fast moving, but it gives you an idea of the value of the Alecto's view range, camo and the gold-filled 25pdr :chrg :-)

...and the very next game, 7 kills and an ace playing a more traditional TD role on FishyBay

I subsidize the Alecto with the Bishop and the AC4

Well I finally did it! Got the 2nd mark on the AC4 Exp. Those who log into the shared channel in the mornings have often heard me moaning about getting to 83% then getting a run of 5 horrorgames. The moaning is now over. A concentrated week costing lots of pudding and tea and the occasional directive got me my milestone.

The game is unremarkable but the outcome fantastic. We lost, but the Beast topped the table and kicked over to 85.6%.
I know a lot of you have masses of three-marks, but this is something special. The AC4 was my first premium, back in the days when I was only playing Tier I-III. I butchered the thing to the point where it had a WR of 45 and a WN8 of 300 after 1000 games. Yet I loved it. The gun handling is brilliant, the turret is bouncy, the pen takes you comfortably into tier VIII. It’s also slow as f*ck, but we’ll discuss that another day. It took 2500 games to get to this happy stage
Last noobmeter stats:

6 AC 4 Exp. MT GB 6 13 874 84.62% 1,867

So here’s a glass to the little beast. :o7 :o7 :o7 :beer1
