As you can tell i hate T54 with a passion. its overpowered and deserves to get stomped by light tanks. i will probs get T54 LT simply because i think it looks cool. i dont understand what the turret is tho.. its a T54 hull? with T54 turret? but the armor values are not the same. are they older models or something?

 

It's a T-54 with reduced armour thickness, to save weight. Hence identical looks but less armour.

I thought that but i guess the model is newer or older? was the LT version the first one and T54 was the "final" version? i dont mind the armor loss but they took the gun too..sucks.. keep armor nerf gun maybe but WHY BOTH DAMMIT? :angry:

Historically, it's a later model. They wanted an adjusted T-54 for specific missions. Later they realised the whole thing was pretty useless.

18 sec to unload is a drawback, for sure, still, regular tier 8 medium has to shoot 4 times to kill you and that's ~19.5 seconds, with the first shot already loaded, so it's close, but M41 should have the advantage. And sure you would have to pen all 10 and not roll low, because average damage of one clip is 1500 and that's the healthpool of Panther 2. Still, in a lot of situations you will win. I mean, no one will want to end up 1 on 1 in a light tank, but if you do you have a chance to come out alive. Obviously meds with some armor can bounce with front before you can get to their side or win extra time if you hold with shooting, like Panther 2, possibly Indien, Super Pershing, T44?. And T54 is too stronk, and tier 9 so no way you can win alone. Unless he's distracted, wounded and you are on his butt, before he realizes he lost half his health.

plus the fact M41 is a huge target and the chassie front is big/flat makes it a great target to use HE on.

True, 25 mm at front?, should be no problem for 90mm HE. Still, majority of players don't actually use HE at all, and not in every situation they have the luxury to load it.

A clip of 10, APCR as standard shell, 2 sec inclip reload, and 27 sec clip reload.

Did I copy the top speed of 74 km/h correctly?

 

My M24 Chaffee crew already filed a transfer form, another "Queen of Hearts" for me too.

 

Same - it also seems that a lot of mediums at tier VII are just generally underwhelming, barely an improvement over their tier VI predecessors. So, I hope that this ultra fast dpm devil at tier VII can fill out a gap in my garage (I have no tier VII meds).

 

Good thing I have a buck load of free XP stored up for this and perhaps the German tier VIII light.

I do. i make it my duty to ruin a light armor targets day by loading HE.

 

most meds at T6 and 7 are crappy. but then again T6 tanks dont meet tier 9. tier 7 has such a crappy MM. no tier 7 can 1v1 a T54.

You'd do that to all our LT's bros, even though their life is so hard? You so cruel! On the serious note, you are a decent player which puts you in minority of players in WoT, which being FTP has many more bad players that have no idea about switching ammo. I usually carry 1-2 HE for interruptions, especially on tanks with low ammo capacity, but when 9.3 goes live i'm loading at least 10 HE on every tank that i can, for sure.

You shouldn't see the Bulldog as a replacement for a tier 7 medium, though. Due to it's MM, all scout tanks are effectively a tier higher.

I started loading HE since the new german TD's was introduced.
