Historical incentive for Premium Ammo - Depleted Uranium Shells

Uranium is far denser than steel and has a history of being used as a high pen projectile.

 

So why not have them as an ammo in limited amounts. For when you need that extra pen, you can switch to DUAP.

 

Being a limited ammo could mean they wont be abused and only provide advantage in limiting situations.

 

Their density and weight could even provide an overmatch facility for smaller calibre guns.

You're possibly a great guy or lady (whatever your gender), but the fact you've just mentioned premium ammo in WoWs has just earned you an honourable tarring and feathering if I ever meet you in real life!

 

My personal feeling is for there never to be premium ammo in this game. I think it has ruined WoT from being truly great. Better players (and those with better personal finances) can afford to use it more than most and the fact they can afford to use it more than most gives them added advantage over weaker players.

 

If you open that door for limited amounts you've opened the door and its too late to close it. Best it stay shut.

What would be historical would be to heat the shells until red hot and then fire it

Depleted uranium is for kids, how about W23 as a research bureau obtainable ammo? /s

Great idea! Sigma should be removed anyway according to some people and with these shells you only have to shoot somewhere in the general direction of the enemy. Iowa will be the meta. Steamrolls may occur, but I'm sure WG will find a way to balance it. :cap_popcorn:

we've just closed one topic about premium ammo, 

another one pops out. 

 

On a very slim chance you are not trolling, and genuine about your suggestion, 

please use the suggestions topic. 

 

This one will be closed.
