Good find :)

Just spent some free xp going through the light tank section in preparation for buying a chaffee :)

M5 then should be 14k xp and 300k to buy?

You need around 55.000 Xp for it and the tank costs around 550.000 credits.. :D A bit crazy and front armor of 25 at hull and 38 at turret but it's really ugly and so great the second one :D

The second turret looks like something out of a 80s scifi comic... but i kind of like it.  :Smile_great:

Second turret is hilarious but the thing is amassing.

Killed a Tiger with it, penetrated an IS frontally :P
Put coated optics on it and it gets 495 view range.
Put Stabilizer and you can pew pew on the move with pleasure.

Will update screen shots later.

You forgot to mention that this thing has insane RoF as well. It does more DPM than E8 or Wolverine. With better penetration.

BTW, I'm quite sure that coated optics (and vent + 100% crew) are needed to get the listed view range.

Nope, its 100% crew + Vent + 10% crew consumable to get the listed range.

Screenshots!
(as yes you need all that junk for the view range, was just alluring to the fact that 460 (technically at least) view range for a scout is quite amassing ;))

Hell, that 75mm alone is enough reason to get it. At least it will be able to damage equal tiers, even mediums slighlty above it.

Nope, but the 76mm makes more than up for that. Fast firing, extremly high penetration for Tier5 and good accuracy.  :Smile-izmena:

Yep, get ready for a lot of grinding in the M5

Penetration is only ONE mm less than the PnzIV's venerable 76mm L70! That L70 is good even for a tier VI medium and is what you have to grind the stock tier VII Panther with. Chaffee's 75mm does slightly less damage, but has a significantly higher RoF and is mounted on a tier V zippy.

We should not applaud it too much, let's concentrate on it's weak points, or we'll get it nerfed before the release.... so, yeah, the Armor is weak, and it looks redicilous with the second turret.  ;)

What is this armor thing you speak of?  I'm certain M24 has none of it.

Also it has lowest speed of all T5 lights and 2nd turret and best gun add enough mass to make acceleration a bit iffy at times. And considering the size of SciFi turret its likely least stealthy T5 light.

2nd turret looks need to be revised, it really does not fit on the hull, and we have a nice T5 scout/stalker.

A 55k exp grind with the M5 for a lightank that is worse then the others. I guess we won't see many of them.

It's not bad at all. it's quite fun, just not your typical rush scout. More of a view range scout with great flanking oportunity.

The VK however ... meh
