For how amazing the 17pdr is at tearing tanks asunder, I can live with the 20pop. The real issue is how massive it is. Placement is absolutely crucial for something that requires manual facing and is slow to turn, but the 17pdr is so huge it simply can't fit in most places you'd want to put one, even with some serious demolition work. I rarely use it, not because I dislike it or can't afford the cost, but because I rarely find a good place to put one down.
I think this poll has to many answers. It would probably be more conducive to ask the same question with three answers being "It is Over powered" "It is balanced" and "It is Under Powered" and then have people explain why in the replies.
Too big to place anywhere useful, too high a pop cap requirement and not useful enough...
Complete waste of resources to build, don't think I've ever built one without regretting it.
It is better to spend the resources on a Firefly tbh. Same gun, good movement allows you to flank. As soon as the enemy sees a 17 pounder, boom boom boom, Stuka/arty.
If your opponent is retarded and does nothing but spam tanks into the same corridors, the 17 pdr saves your ass when you'd otherwise be fucked. But if they are remotely intelligent, they will nuke it with artillery and hand the shell-shocked rubble back to you for a huge loss of resources.
