Rebought, can't believe it has the same stats.

Also can't believe I put my old RU251 crew in it :trollface:
456m viewrange on T4 is balanced right? :trollface: And then I also still run the binocs :trollface:

 

Seems they just did not notice this tank during balancing :P

Pretty sure all the tier 4 LTs were untouched, so yeah. Fun to be had all around.

 

Of course, tier 4 LTs always had a weird matchmaking where they were both scouts but could also have top tier matches so they're probably not entirely OP... just a little :B

Seems they forgot to remove the OP machine gun.

It was a nice little tank back when it was (barring an odd tier 4 game) essentially a tier 5. Now it's incredibly strong. 300 damage delivered instantly, with 60 kph and great agility and 440 meters VR and 35% camo (with my setup). Can even score a few bounces.

 

Benefits hugely from platooning too: 2 Luchses (or Luchse) have enough potential damage to vaporise a tier 5 in less than a second. 3 of these little Lynxes can rip a tier 6 to shreds before it can even fire.

I'd really like to progress up the German light tank line, but this tank is just way too fun (and looks damn cute to boot)!

 

It's a damn shame one cannot obtain marks on tier 4. They would look great on that tiny barrel.

Sadly, you can get marks on the tier 5 Leopard using the same gun, but they aren't really noticeable.

Oh boy, this thing sure puts the "power" into the "powerhouse". Just saw MarkGFL play this on twitch and I just had to instantly free exp to it and try it out. I feel a bit filthy doing so, knowing I'm spoiling some poor newbies game every now and then, but IT'S JUST SO FUN! :playing: Dakka dakka!

Imagine the carnage with a 3 man Luchs platoon, put on the same team as a 3 man Leopard platoon

 

weep

 

Imagine no more: http://wotreplays.eu...z_kpfw_ii_luchs

 

I feel sorry for that Tiger...

And that IS...

They nerfed it, damnit. Even with merciless speed nerf it is still powerful scout
