Hello fellow tankers,

 

Not a long time ago, there were those bundle of missions that one of the rewards was the German prem Light tank - The T-15. I unlocked it, and had a couple of rounds. And since then, I simply fell in love with it! Sure, it's obviously not making money, but the fun... is simply outstanding! Speed and acceleration, View Range, Signal range - All those making him a master scout in his level.

 

Just wanted to share,

Cheers.

Yeah the T-15 is quite fun to play. As long as you do not use it as a pure scout, rather a sneaky combat tank.

I loaded all his ammo with gold and go to troll people. REALLY having fun with it! I usually play 2~4 games a day, and move to other tanks.

If you are good at at scouting you can use it in trollplatoons (know the difference between "trollplatoon" and "failplatoon") because it really is awesome scout. :ph34r:

Fast, invisible, good view range and high tier radio.

If I can live with the measly alpha, the gun struggles to pen the flanks of tier4 LT. And don't tell me it's a scout, there's really no use for dedicated scouts at tier3-5 as there are tons of light/fast meds and plenty of suicide rushers at those tiers.

Always felt it was one of the overlooked gems for lower tiers , the view range alone makes it deadly when used right.   Someone disagrees though be the neg rep you got , such strange fruits on the boards :bajan:

Using mine to train most of my awfulPanther crew, good fun tank.

A vehicle that delivers pure fun. My Leopard crew serves with great pleasure on this vehicle.

I completely agree with you. It's a very fun tank to drive. :glasses:

Had to love this tank. Got my first and probably last ace-tanker badge on a light tank.

90% luck, 10% bad enemy.

I just got this little machine to train my pz38 na crew in it. Struggled a bit with it. Right now it has vents and a camo net. What do you use on it? Recommendations?

In 111 games I have  a 56% win rate.  Extremely versatile little vehicle. I bought mine for half price in the 2013 Xmas sale.  I have it camo’d up and have vents, camo net and binoculars on it. Crew is now on it’s third skill and the core of that crew is that from the LolTraktor.  they’ve achieved that level because I’ve cycled them from the Traktor, through the Pz38H and into this T-15 regularly.  Now I have a Pz II Ausf.J and that means even more crew improvements.

 If I get into Tier III battles on Provence (particularly) it makes the game.  I’ll sit in one of two bushes (depending on my spawn point) and shoot across the map, raking in spotted damage XP. Sixth sense tells me when it is time to leave as 2 seconds is usually shorter than it takes the enemy tanks to see you, decide to shoot at you and to aim. When it comes time to move it is a fairly zippy little thing and I’ve been able to reset cap or intercept a breakthrough many times.  It is actually a good enough scout tank, but shouldn’t need to do that if you have BT-7’s on your team being used right.

Sad to say I noticed after the 8.9 patch that all the little Tier III premiums we’ve been gifted, won or have bought are increasingly thrown into matches of higher tier.

With 100% crew and binocs you have almost max view range with an excellent radio, speed and nice turn rate, trouble is most of the time your team will never make good use of your scouting witch is a shame because its very hard to carry games with its unbelievably bad gun.

Agreed.

I got one recently and it is nearly (but not quite) as fun to play as my Luchs.

 

Also, get the US Locust as well if you don't already have it, thats also a blast to play.
