I have the FCM 36,and i mentioned it is slow,so not that good at farming.

Can tell someone pros/cons of this tank?

Pros:
  • Solid armor can easily bounce shots
  • Good rate of fire
  • Turret traverses quickly
  • Has special matchmaking, only gets into tier 3-4 battles (unlike other tier 3 tanks that get into tier 3-5)
  • Quite mobile for the amount of armor it has

 

Cons:
  • Lower speed and maneuverability than other light tanks
  • Poor signal range
  • Low hull traverse speed
  • Lower part of the frontal hull is slightly less armored at 30mm
  • Driver hatch at front is a big weakspot
  • Has less penetration than other tier 3 Russian light tank

It is indeed fairly well armoured, pretty much immune to Pz 1C, unless you do something stupid. The view range is decent, accuracy isn't that bad either. On the other hand, it is rather slow (but not sluggish). Penetration isn't stellar, you may or may not need to fire a few shots of premium ammunition against some heavier targets. Avoid Matildas and frontal engagements with Hetzers.

 

And did I mention it is slow? Ah yes, I did. It is a bit annoying for me, as I am used to slightly more manoeuvrable vehicles.

One of the criteria to judge the tank is how hard to get the M badge. For this one you will get 1st class for 1000 base xp. Mastery goes at about 1200 - apparently people do quite well in it.

True.  I took out 10 tanks in a game i won a few weeks ago and I only got 1st class.  To get Ace you have to deal out a lot of damage

Just rolled this thing out again to train my MT-25 crew. Just had an ace game in it, game play wasn't even genius. I just drive to enemies, auto aim, and click them do death, haha. 8 kills, 1100 something damage, 1176 base xp. Enemy pz1c pests were quickly dispatched off in the beginning, they were the biggest threat to our team as it was a tier 3 game with a lot of lightly armored tier 2's.

And other 8-kill game I just had in tier 3:

I was given this in a promotion Xmas 2011.   586 games and a 61% win rate.  Excellent crew trainer for your other Soviet light tanks.

 

I've had ten kills twice in this.  2 Kolbanolov's a Naydins' and a Pascucci.

 

24 Top Guns.

 

MM has been changed for the last two patches.  It now sees Tier IV.

No, this is a relatively recent thing.   Maybe the last six months.

I've had mine over a year and it's always seen 3 and 4.

if you are claiming that it is nerfed, maybe you can specify what was nerfed?

I´ m still trying to figure it out...maybe it´s just the mm but I just can´t win matches anymore (in the sense of carrying the game).

Your not alone ast65, i've had this little pocket rocket for years and only recently i'm struggling to win games with it. Still have a 57% win rate with it after 1150 games but as you mention recently it's become tougher. Could be down to me though

I really loved this tank but after 9.5 I´m beginning to hate it...

gun accuracy was nerfed hard and mm is a fuckin joke- I´m always lowest tier with only tomatos in my team...

I can´t do anything with this tank anymore if 10/15 are dead in first minute.

Since 9.5 I can only stay at cap and try to defend as good as possible until I´m shot to pieces eventually...

really frustrating.

fk u WG

 

edit: it seems mm was f...d up especially yesterday, today allswell again.

        no hard feelings WG, eh?

When I first had it I had easily 5-6 kill games and 1k+ damage.

Didn't play it for some time and started to play it again a week or 2 ago.

Since then WR has dropped from 68% to  50% as I was getting only losses

The last few games I had were 1-2 kills and some damage.

My last game this weekend I couldn't even penetrate a T2 tank on the side, bounce after bounce after bounce, an PZ 35 T with 16 big mm of armor and my tiny 51 mm of penetration.
