The 45mm Gun is Useless in EVERY situation. and is Outclassed by the Zis Field Gun
Lets go over the facts shall we?
- I has a penetration of 100 Close range, making it useless against anything that is not a Kubelwagon, its even more useless than the 57mm USF gun, atleast that can be made 10% more useful with the Completely-not-micro-intensive AP rounds.
- It deals 80 DAMAGE, it deals 1/2 the damage of normal AT guns, And dont give me that "Muh Fire Rate" nonsense because it will be completely redundant when 90% of weak shots bounces off anything bigger than a luchs
- [FONT=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]It is outclassed by the ZIS field gun in terms of damage and scaling, heck. Id take the Gold Medal in Dancing Guards with PTRS over this monstrosity because it has the same penetration, but its more mobile and Guards are actually better against infantry than weapon crews.[/FONT]
- [FONT=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Its Doctrinal. and the much better Zis Field gun is Stock in the Soviet armoury[/FONT]
Remove it, there is no reason to use or even think about not using this thing, best to replace this unit in all 2 doctrines its in with something potentially better, like SVTs of Cons, Commissars, or something useful.
Why not just buff the numbers?
Because unless you make this superior to the ZIS, there is not wya people would choose this over ZIS or any other AT gun.
Oh, and here are the Commanders that have this unit in case you don't know.
