American punch combined with French speed makes for a very capable tank of the month: the T71. Find out more about this never-completed US prototype, and learn how to use it to your advantage in our in-depth review!

Great, I just started grinding it recently :) .

As for the guide: Nicely written but how the hell did you reach this conclusion?!

Overall, both guns are about equal in terms of their on-the-battlefield performance.

It's certainly a very interesting vehicle and a very quirky looking tank as well :D Might buy it and give it a go to compare it to my AMX 13/75.
So that matchmaking value basically warrants the higher penetration and slightly higher stats over the AMX 13/75...

Yeah! I was waiting for that famous and well known veteran of many battles all around the world for far too long.
So good we wont get any blueprint tank or never existing one when still so many tanks that actually existed were NOT gloried in this event. After AC Mle something, the most massively nonused tank destroyer of all ages and the infamous WZ-something, light tank that destroyed more Tigers and Panthers than any other chinesse tank ever!
This time we wil get tank that existed and also looks soooooo good.

I hate this tank whenever I see it on the enemy lineup.
Perhaps I should spare some free xP and fail in it myself?
Hmm...

I'm playing this myself atm and have a love/hate relationship with it.  As I'm a medium driver I drive this thing too hard and frequently get myself caught out of position or end up flying off bumps etc and tracking myself!
It can be a really really powerful tank when used right however and I hate facing against enemy T71's. They're usually high on my kill list!  March is going to be a fun grind with it!

Just remember, buy it tomorrow as it's 50% off starting tomorrow.  :Smile_great:

i play with the following equipment, since i play it as scout for Tier 8 TCs:

Vents, Coated Optics, Suspension

It works good as a sniper, too.
Suspension give you + 30% hitpoints on tracks, and thanks to the new map design, u need them

end up flying off bumps etc and tracking myself!

thats why i have suspension in all my light tanks...

I see them more and more and like shooting at them. Especially with my T95  :Smile_veryhappy:

i got the T21 now and love it, it is almost like the T20, I am used to. I love medium tanks, very fast and furious...

i think I would go for VStab, bino and optics.... Then for the crew members camo....

I see what you did here. :Smile-tongue:
Joking aside me playing with arty and my platoon friend playing with T71 is a pretty fun/lethal combination. T71 looks like a fun little bugger.
