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).

 

You and several others wouldn't mind no, but it's just not going to happen. It will have regular MM, Battletier 9, and will be balanced accordingly. M41 Walker Bulldog will have Battletier 10 and T49 LT will have Battletier 11. All the (new) standard of +3 tiers for scouts.

Id prefer better MM. lower armor targets in lower tiers. more pen more BOOM!

The gun is too good even for tier 6 MM (if the stats are kept the same). So either gun nerfed or same underdog MM as current chaffee. (I prefer the latter, while former is unfortunately more likely).

The only thing that would make the gun 'too good' is the soft stats. It has only 9mm more pen and the same DPM as the T21. So they'll probably tone down the aiming speed and dispersion and call it a day.

It will be balanced by having a terrible P/W ratio of a T28proto i bet, making it unusuable as a scout tank. its not a russian tank so it cant be decent or OP by russki laws.

From Supertest:

 

Hitpoints: 1100

Top gun: 152mm Gun-Launcher XM81
Penetration: 76/152,4/76 (HE/HEAT/gold HE, gold HE shells have larger blast radius it is assumed)
Damage: 910/700/910
DPM with HEAT: 1825
Aim time: 4s
Accuracy: 0,6
Depression: -10

Hull turnrate: 44
Hp/t: 24,74
Weight: 22,234 tons
Viewrange: 400

 

P/W ratio of 24 is pretty good. We don't know the ground resistance yet, but they would need to make it really awfull to make this thing slow.

I love my Type 64 with its 21.74 P/W seriously its amazing with 23 tons AND Ability to turn in place (seriously i love that ability) so depending on the acceleration and turn/speed limit it might be great.

I will wait till the inevitable nerf has been and gone before I decide if I am going to get this thing. If, and its a big if, wg leave the derp gun in a usable state after the post introduction nerf. Then it may well be something I would like to get. Hopefully all the light tank lines are going to be getting some love from wg soon. As at the moment they are all next to useless as scouts due to the ante TD map changes that have happened over the last few patches.

Does anyone know the amount of XP needed from the tier 5 light Chaffee to get the new tier 6, perhaps shown on test server ?

It would be good to have supertest info from some kind person as to XP cost there.

Oh ffs, it is not that hard to guess on the XP cost. From T5 to T6 LT's the general rule is about 27k >. T6 to T7 is around 40k >. T7 to T8 can range anywhere from 70k up to 100k. Give or take you'll need about 200k free XP to get to T8 from T5 including modules.

 

*edit: 

For the Record

 

Source: https://vk.com/newsblog_wot

In 9.3, XP prices are likely to be as such:

- RU251: 92700 XP
- reworked Chaffee: 12480 XP
- T37 LT: 28100 XP
- M41 Walker Bulldog: 56300 XP
- T49: 101200 XP
- LTTB: 59150 XP
- T-54 Light: 96300 XP

I've got a load of free xp and tempted to jump straight to the elite bulldog to get to this mini monster.

Well I have saved 120k free exp which was going to be used to make the leo pta a nicer grind but instead now it'll be used to unlock all the modules on these lights (not to skip any of them mind, they all look awesome). Just a shame that I saved an excessive amount of xp on the Chaffee though, hehehe.

Wow... I love my T71 but damn... this will be on another level! It will most likely be almost certainly unlocked from the T71 right? I want to save up some XP to get it as soon as it comes out! Ignore that, just read a previous post. I have a T54E1, the T49 LT won't will be auto unlocked for me, right?
