I see this very often that they use Gold ammo in T71 or T69. In T69 even more then in T71. A Autoloader with Gold ammo is OP. And those players then think they are the best players.

Note however that T71 uses APCR as standard shells. Premium shells are HEAT with only 210mm penetration which is a debatable improvement. Due to the mods showing which shells you are being shot with people often whine about T71s using gold when they are in fact not.

T69 on the other hand has AP with 170mm penetration as standard and HEAT with 250mm (used to be 300mm) penetration as premium which makes a world of difference on a tank way slower than T71.

I hate HEAT shells..that pen dont mean crap if you hit spaced armor. T71 has the mobility to flank and use that low pen unlike T69 which is way too freaking slow to use his terrible pen and shit damage (yeh that damage is terrible trust me!) most will ether miss, bounce or simply get eaten by spaced armor. T71 is an upgrade compared to T69.

Not once did i ever need gold in T71! the standard ammo is great because of the mobility. take away that mobility (T69!) and you have a garbage tank that pings.

5.600 per shell in a tier7 light tank?
You need that prem ammo? REALLY?
I mean...T71 has AWESOME gun and standard APCR ammo...I wouldnt use HEAT even for free.

You shouldn't even need to bother with premium shells..I don't have any on my T71 and I've killed tier 9-10 with no trouble with it, my best game in it was with mostly tier 9 and 10s and it was my 2nd best game between all my tanks.
If you think you should stay around and shoot in the front of other tanks than you're doing it wrong anyway.
