Hmm, but I have - at no possible point - ever suggested that it should have standard attack range!
I only said that it should have 70 basic range instead of 75 currently, the standard attack range for most vehicles is 60.
So, 70 range is still +10 more than the standard attack range...
The gun has crap accuracy, that's true.. but you can just keep trying from safe distance until you manage to hit, the enemy has no chance to catch you anyway as long as you have +15 range advantage! Also, the gun isn't that much crappy... It's capable of killing Pz4.F2, Stugs, as well as all Pak40 half-tracks in addition to valuable mortar half-tracks from safe distance... I tell you what, it's also often used to kill AT guns from such a distance! The accuracy against AT guns that are revealed or not in camo yet, seems to be very high and precise.
Pak40 on the other hand isn't much more valuable when you don't have a range advantage.. it's true you can kill some medium tanks of that same tier with 1 shot, but those medium tanks will also kill you with 1 shot! It's a huge risk attacking them when u don't have a range advantage and at the same time paper armor that is pretty much destroy-able by any sort of AT fire, even 50.cal can kill u. And those half-tracks almost cost as much fuel as HE Shermans. Also, there are some tanks in ur same tier that are simply impenetrable with your Pak40 such as Churchills and Jumbos except with extreme luck. How would you risk going head to head with those tanks when you don't have a range advantage??
Keeping in mind also that when those Pak40 vehicles are selected from the reward menu, you also won't have the standard Pak40 AT guns.. which means you are severely exposed against Churchills and Jumbos, on the other hand both the T48 and 57mm AT guns are available to all docs always.
According to my suggestion, the 57mm half-track would still keep its range advantage, which is +10 basic range advantage over all other vehicles instead of currently +15 basic range advantage.. and at the same time, also according to my suggestion... The 57mm half-track would still keep a basic range advantage over Pak40 vehicles.. but instead of +15 basic range advantage, it would be +5 only. Yet, the Pak40 vehicles would only have +5 more range advantage over all other vehicles! So, my suggestion would simply lead to a better more fair result.. and yet it breaks nothing!
