Lovely tank, shame about the awful aiming time, everything else is just funky.  A true noob destroyer and the best promo WOT have done yet - I wouldn't sell mine.

Strangely, i much prefer the BT2 to the tet.
prob my play style, but BT2 feels more agile, so can dogfight better, and even when sniping the BT2 gun aims and shoots faster and more accurately.
Well, BT-2 IS much more agile thanks to monstrous engine it has and DOES dogfight better (thanks to better agility and better close-combat guns). Overall BT-2 is probably better. I used to use BT-2 to troll lowtier matches, but then switched to Tetrarch when I got it. Tetrarch is only better as sniper than BT-2, thanks to good accuracy and excellent penetration that allows to damage even armored tanks (unlike BT-2 or Tetrarch itself) at longer ranges.

Hi.

Made 11 kills in one battle today with my Tetrarch:

Victory!
Battle: Malinovka Freitag, 21. September 2012 10:09:10
Vehicle: MkVII Tetrarch
Experience received: 2.272 (x2 for the first victory each day)
Credits received: 13.265
Battle Achievements: Top Gun

I gave him my standard scout equipment (Binoc, camo net, toolbox) and use him as scout for the rest of the team.

Coolest machine in WoT so far.

Yours

tom! :Smile_blinky:

Record 12 kills in a battle with Tetrarch. Loved the speedy sniper. Now matched with tier 3s as bottom of the column which makes playing a challenge and winning hard.
Many Tier 3s one shot Tetrarch easily. Also some elements of gun, visibility and view range nerfed around summer. No more easy wins.

yeah I wonder if the Tetrarch got a nerf. I used to rack up 7 kills a match easily, now it's quite rare for me. I hardly see tier 1's anymore, just a few a match, and have been only in tier 3 matches since 8.0. :(

Tetrarch is a very good tank in company battles i found out today  (junior lvl), it
makes a good scout, and has a cannon most underestimate to their peril.

Well I got this in the promo and played many battles.   Like a slighly slower, slightly blinder BT-2.

Of late I find myself consistently at the bottom of the tank list, which is a shame.  If I had paid for this I'd be mad for sure.  She remains a fun tank to play and one to devour the noobydoos, but don't pay money for it.

Yes since 8.0 the MM of Tet is much worse. Too many guns can one-shoot you now. I miss massacring loltraktors :(

That's why I rarely use my Tetra. Now I use my fully upgraded MS1 with binocs, camonet, ventilation and Tetras commander and driver to slaughter those loltraktors.

i love this thing!
You get the map province allot and sometimes malinovka, that is where this thing(imo) really shines!
the gun is just so great to snipe with(for low tiers!) and even if you get on a city map it can still handle it self quite well.

Great review mate, as usual.

I find that tank really enjoyable, and really really good for it's tier. It's even better when you consider it was free...

The matches it gets into now are just silly. Same with good old pz38h.

Only tank I have taken up from 50% crew.  Still a keeper especially as I now have range increaser and off road driving - its amazing where you can take this tank now :)

Is it just me or no-1 ever plays the Tetrach anymore? I've been in at least 10 battles in a row recently and none of these had a Tetrach teammate in it. It's so disappointing because it's a really great tank  :Smile_confused:

I doubt it will be, it was a special.

And yeah, I hardly face enemy tetrarchs anymore. I remember the days where each team had 3 to 4, now it seems they're quite rare.

I play mine all the time, if you have one its a good time to play, you can rape all these T1-E6 just don't get to close to them with that auto gun.

I am going to see how many Topguns I can get in one day hehehehe

The Tet is one of my all time favorite WoT tanks

my only gripe is the limited maps, they should make more available for T1 and 2

Mine has ventilation, camo net and gld.

Crew has biA at 100% with the next at 50% or something.

I still play at least once a day. Nothing beats the feeling you get when you rack up top guns consecutively with this beast.
