You won't be able to go from the T54E1 to the T49 LT, if that's what you're thinking :S

If you don't think you'll enjoy the lower tier lights then it's probably a bad idea to consider investing yourself into tier 8 light gameplay in my opinion!

 

I think this is making me all hipster about the Chaffee :( At least judging by the posts on FTR there are going to be hundreds of "donkeys" desperate for this tank, and it'll break my heart to see them all suicide derping with less than one shots worth of average damage and awful survival rate! At least that means it'll never get nerfed.

 

It was nice being niche, I suppose now it's time to step out into the sunshine so to speak!

I dont mind being low tier as long as the scout can do its job. fast/mobile/gun can pen side/rear armor effectively thats all i ask. I have WZ-132 and 13 90. love them both.

Well get ahead of the game and get a Chaffee, save up some 50k exp on it too before patch 9.3. That'll shorten the journey somewhat and it'll be easier to make exp on the Chaffee now before they adjust it. Also you can say you were there! :glasses:

But they might lower the chaffee cost and make it easier. i have the m5 already unlocked with full mods (i haz T54E1) i enjoyed M5 allot so the grind wont bother me. id just rather not grind all that exp and then have the exp base lowered when the next patch arrives.

They probably will lower the Exp cost, yes.

It is reasonable to expect that we will be given some freexp (cost of top turret for chafee), since it's going to be removed.

Nah, it's just getting a different turret model, Chaffee will continue to have two turrets. You make me wonder about the gun, though. Does anybody know if the Chaffee is getting gun adjustments? I can't find anything about it.

Can't find anything either. It is possible the Chaffe gets the standard 75 mm M1A1 gun or the M1A2 I suppose since these look like the most logical options unless it gets to keep the 76 mm it currently has. Not sure if there would be any problems with keeping its current guns as it is or with some small tweaks.

I pretty much doubt top gun will stay. IT is too OP for downgraded chaffee. Insane pen for 5-8MM.

I just had a sit down with my T49 crew in the barracks. Told them to take all of their personal belongings from that tank and that they should prepair to be retrained for my new future baby. They took it rather well i suppose. I guess they're also bored of tier 5 clubbing and they really want the new challenge.

I wonder if the current Chafee top gun will go to the T37, or to the Walker Bulldog?

The Walker Bulldog's guns have already been leaked. Equal damage and pen to T71's gun, stock gun has a 10-shell autoloader and top gun has no autoloader but an incredible RoF compared to the stock gun.

 

So, Chaffee's top gun will likely go to T37.

But that woudld make it far better than the T21 at T6.  Unless they nerf everthing else to hell.

Or T37 will get chafee's MM (since it's pretty much the same chaffee).

9mm more penetration is the main difference.The RoF and damage (thus DPM) are actually identical, but those are soft stats and thus balance parameters. As are the aim time and accuracy.

Doubtfull that they'd give it Battletier 11 as max MM.

I wouldn't mind. IF it is pretty much the same as chaffee, only tier 6, it would be a pretty unique vehicle as currently is chaffee (less unique since tier 6 instead of 5, but still the only one across all the LTs).
