The Kranvagn and Emil II are the dominant heavy tanks in their tiers. They offer very high battle performance, which explains why the “Swedes” are very popular in Random and Ranked Battles. In terms of their characteristics, both vehicles are slightly superior to their same-tier heavy tanks, meaning that they can turn into formidable opponents when placed in the right hands. We want to reduce the efficiency of the Kranvagn and Emil II in several ways.
The Kranvagn Changes
The vehicle’s mobility will be limited, with the forward speed reduced from 60 to 45 km/h, and the reverse speed reduced from 18 to 12 km/h. Shooting comfort will also be reduced.
To do this, the dispersion at 100 m will increase from 0.36 to 0.4 m, and the dispersion during turret rotation from 0.1 to 0.18 m. The amount of damage caused will also decrease, with the magazine reload time increasing from 21.5 to 25 s. This will reduce the damage per minute from 2,933 to 2,596 HP/min.
The Emil II Changes
In terms of performance, this vehicle does not stand out as much as its older counterpart. However, to keep changes consistent, Wargaming will also reduce its forward and backward speed to 40 and 12 km/h, respectively. As a result, the Kranvagn and Emil II will become approximately the same in terms of movement speed.
The firepower of one of its guns (12 cm akan L/40) will also be reduced by increasing its dispersion at 100 m from 0.38 to 0.42 m, dispersion on turret traverse from 0.12 to 0.18 m, and magazine reloading time from 25 s to 30 s. Damage per minute will be decreased from 2,554 to 2,200 HP/min.
