Just had a Blast with this Light tank. I personally think it's one of the most underestimated scouts out there.

Killed 7, Survived, Win - 2,6k EXP!

Enjoy watching:

Well, no offence, but it looks to me if you had a lucky run catching players AFK, fires, and rather retarded enemy team overall ;)

I have just played like 20 games so far with the T21 compared with 300+ on the Chaffee and personally I do not see what the T21 does better if you are to compare the Tier5 scouts. The Chaffee feels more mobile, have a better gun. None of them have usable armor.

Wow - where can I buy such bad teams ? Will take a dozen of them  :Smile_blinky:

Sorry to say this, but this battle only shows how bad the enemy team was and how lucky you were, to get on their flank without opposition.
And then you could handle them one by one, because no one covered their team mates in the enemy team (or were AFK).

So again: pure luck - no skill.
And you could have achieved that even in some lower tier tank.
So you can't credit the T-21 for this.

I want to fight teams like these. Even the Somua would shine.

I got one of these over the weekend, along with an AMX 12t, the 12t, that's just pants or i cant drive it.... the t21 though, after a couple of battles i thought, its a t6 T49 and had a blast for a game or two then along came a string of t10 battles, all you can do in that case is look for the other lower tier tanks.  The gun isnt up for those battles though, I sat 15m along side a kv-5 in one battle that was distracted and i tried to pump 10 rounds into his sides, not a single bit of dmg dealt :(  In another t10 battle in ruinsville, nearing the end of the battle i decided to at last have a hunt for the remaining one arty, I was spotted by an is-8 (heavy tank), and he caught me up and finished me off.  How can this be a scout if a heavy tank has speed on his side against me.  I am enjoying it strangely, its just so manoeuvrable but ultimately it lacks the firepower and pace, so .... no its not a T49 at all and its equally not a scout.  the 12t, omg... :(

EDIT.  Just looked at my stats in the tank... 68% WR, granted only 27 battles, and some of them where not elited of course.  Maybe my perception is wrong on this tank.

the same pretty much goes for every t6 light/ light medium though. t21, amx12t, 59-16 and cromwell. non of these do anything better than the chaffee and t50-2....

The T21 is great, loving it, much more enjoyable than the Chaffee

I passive scout for a while and then when the enemy is busy flank and get right behind some unsuspecting heavy and pump your shells into his weakspots, pen of the gun is great up-close.

Snipers\campers have no business playing with this tank, its a shotgun ninja tank

Hating the T21. Been wanting the T71 and further on tanks for ages, but I just can't get past this piece of shit T21. :/ Loved the M5 Stuart, only had 7 games in Chaffee but it's clear that tank even as stock is great. Facing off T71's in 1375/1390 it's equally clear that thing is damn powerful, the damage potential/size on it just makes it a power package. It actually out-circles the turret speed of my 1390, was double-tracked once and just couldn't track him.. I also have the T-50-2 and VK28 (T-50 was great, Leopard terrible). M5a1 + 59-16 and WZ-131 is great (havn't gotten the tier 8 yet so can't comment).

The problems with T21: not its gun. It's a great gun. Vision range works as well even considering it's a "leveling tank" you pass for higher tier lights. Mobility and speed is quite decent as well. But this tank.. it has the size of a barn door. I've had tier 10 games where I sit next to top tier heavies that have the same size as me. And unlike many other light tanks it has zero chance of bouncing shots, it will die if someone sneeze on it.

If the T21 was half the size, or the very least a maximum of 75% of its current size, with a little more chance to bounce shells, then yeah this tank would be good. To me, the (old, not tried the new) Leopard was the absolute worst grind in the game. After trying to get past the T21 now for several months, I have resorted to only do x5 and x3 with it, and even *sic* what I absolutely lothe - considering to free xp past the rest.

It's definately up there being a contender for the worst tank in the game.

It's ok to passive scout and rather fun to drive around in, but the regular non-burst 76mm just doesn't cut it if you want to get your hands dirty later in a match.
The T49 does almost the same job with much, much better MM.

I did not sell it after getting the T71, but might as well as there is little reason to play it.

Indeed a lucky game. But then again, every very good battle (8 kills and more or other special badges) you need luck.  First the enemy team must be very bad,  Secondly your team must be better but not by much (otherwise you rust run over them and no one did exceptional), thirdly you need to be at the right spot at the right time (easier in a fast tank but still) and last you need a favorable randomizer (bounces on you and you make the most ridiculous shots).

I got my T21 recently and really like it. It's better than the 12t and I like it too (that one is just to get to the bat chat).
