The Crusader is painfully slow for a flanker.

Don't underestimate the Light Tank camo value. Crusader is tier 5 light tank with great camo and he fights vehicles with very limited view range - tier 5-7 HTs and TDs are basically blind.
Gun and mobility is comparable to tier 5 medium tank. Gun depression is great, DPM is great - ppl will ignore your 75 dmg pew pew pew and after few shot there will be too late for them to do anything.
IMO nothing to complain.

But I have to agree - it's hard to make Crusader work. It's not a tank for every player IMO.

On these tiers there are some vehicles with excellent view range, f.e. the S35 CA with is 400m.
In most aspects, this tank plays similar to the T-34, but is inferior in terms of dmg, pen, armor and top speed. On the plus side, you have a better camo value and lower height.

The crusader is my favorite T5 (not counting dedicated scouts). I play american tanks most of the time, so i'm used to the lack of armor and good gun depression. I run it with vents, rammer and GLD. My crew is trained in camo (around 90% atm), and combined with the good gun depression it's the phantom troll of the battlefield. The only thing it needs imo is a bit faster aim time.

Strange, the Crusader has faster aiming and reload times compared to these two tanks, better penetration than the M7, and is much more agile than the T49.

The T49 does have a bigger gun, and the M7 has better mobility but to say that everything they do is better is just plain wrong.
