Supertest: Caernarvon & Conqueror Changes Details

Supertest is currently testing quite a few changes to the high Tiers British Heavies. So you can have an idea of what is changed, I’ve gathered all the changes for the Caernarvon and Conqueror under one article.

Caernarvon Changes

One of the worse and most hated heavy tanks in the game will get some love. It’s top turret will be replaced by an improved old turret, and both OQF 20-prd guns will be removed and replaced by a nasty OQF 32-prd. Together with other changes, it’s damage per minute changed from 1,845 to and insane 2,920.

  1. Are you sure that the dpm will be 2,920? this would be better then 113. I guess it will be 1,920. If it gets 2,920 it will dominate every other ht, even when its higher tier.

    1. 280 damage in under 5 seconds with a rammer…yeah it’s 2.9k dpm.

      But low alpha, low mobility and armour still isn’t amazing. It’s like a tier 8 tiger 1.

      BUT if it gets hulldown and is able to protect itself like a Tiger 1 cant….it will be insanely powerful.

      With a tank like the Tiger you get epic DPM for the tier but you almost always have to sacrifice some of you HP to get damage.

      I think these changes are good overall. There are plenty of weak lines and tanks in the game that seriously needed buffs. This being one of them.

      Tier 8 is still pretty much bring IS-3 and Defenders or go home. Hopefully with some buffs to the 110, Tiger 2 etc we will see more variety.

      1. It wont be like Tiger 1. Lets just compare it to the patriot. The patriot is one of the best t8 tanks now.
        Caernavon will have more dpm, accuracy, gunhandling, aimtime, alphadamage, prem penetration (standart is just slightly worse), same hullarmor which is better angled (so the upper plate is even better then patriot, just the lower is worse), slightly worse turret (still great), better viewrange. The only real advantage of the patriot will be his top speed forward and backward.
        This tank will punish every other t8 easily without any problems. Even t9 will get outperformed by that.
        I hope they made a mistake at some point, or it will replaye defender/patriot in CW and skirmishes.

        1. It doesn’t have the mobility to replace the russian heavies in CW/SH. A major trait that makes the russian heavies so popular in these game modes is not just their overall power but also that they are quite flexible (for heavy tanks) allowing to react very fast on the enemies tactic. the new caernavron might become relevant at some key positions and on certain maps but it sure won’t fully replace the current meta tanks.

  2. So basically Caernarvon is going to be so much better than Centurion mk 1 – mobility will be pretty similar in a way, but Carnarvon will have more armor, more HP, similar pen and gun handling, but way better DPM. How is that fair? Why should Cent mark 1 have to be so terrible when compared to Caernarvon? I want WG to give some love to my Centurion mk 1!

  3. Love it!!! The Caernavon had been great at bouncing shells on face -to – face fighting but can’t hit back hard enough. I spent a full 5 minutes fighting a Tiger II WHEN BOTH of our sides had been decimated. I face scraped and he couldn’t pen me even work his big gun. I could only pen him with gold of which I only carry five.

    Now, or rather, when these changes take place the Caernavon will be balanced much better with IS-3, IS-6, Defender, Patriot and tier ix opponents.

    Bring It On!!! ASAP!
