Hey, I recently got the BT-SV and I was wondering if anyone else had one and could platoon with me. I could do with some help on how to drive it, plus it would be pretty cool to see 2 of them together. Thanks in advance.

Hey Jack_E , I just got one, so if you see me online let's try a platoon.

A shop in Russia, but they couldn't accept paypal, so I had to send money to his friend in the US. It cost me £70, although I didn't get the other stuff which comes in the box.

I have one, and the mighty Panzer II J too.

I have platooned with Cappelen in his a few times before, he is very good in it.

Well, I only care about the tank. That price though.... I'm guessing it may not happen.

IMO it isn't such bad value as the 10,000 gold and 90 days premium would cost around £50 anyway, and for me a fun (and rare) tank is worth about £20

I bought one this christmas as a birthday present to myself, €92 but well. The main asset of this tank is that it combines a reasonable gun (the same as the T-127) with high speed (nearly the same as the Pz IIc). The armor is thin, but very angled on the top hull. Many T3 players will shoot just there so you will create bounces, particularly from lower-pen 20mm flak guns.

 

Trolling around on open field as some Youtube videos suggest is hardly possible. I prefer to use this tank for a quick rush to strategic positions such as the hills on Prokhorovka or Himmelsdorf. You can hold out there a bit until support arrives, giving the team an important advantage. However you will be strongly dependent on your team. Also flanking is an option, particularly when the game advances and the fast scouts are dead. Ramming is effective due to your weight and speed, but you will always take considerable damage because of your weak armor.

 

Often T3 matches turn into pure chaos, also on city maps you cannot use your speed to your advantage so well. So often you will simply be a T3 light tank among many. I often had very good games that would have been just as good with a T-127. 

 

In a nutshell, dont buy this tank hoping to get an OP monster.

I couldn't agree more! I bought this tank thinking I could drive around as Jingles did in his video, oh boy was I wrong. Have you also found it is fairly vulnerable to ammorack and engine damage?

I have to disagree :P

Its quite possible to do it but it really depends on the matchup. The only thing I do not like about this tank is the turning speed. If only it could turn better.

 

PS: Ignore my horrible driving ^^.
