I just got this tank and after a few games i was thinking i wasted all this grinding... Posts on this thread say the same thing. 175mm penetration vs tier 10 is how WG troll people who dont buy gold. I still got stock engine so scouting of flanking is out of the question. I actually had a funny game in heavily tier 10 based game with very well armored tanks on enemy team like maus, E100s IS4s and so on, my team roflstomped them, i was in between enemy tanks, they completely ignored me, I couldnt penetrate anything at any angle even from behind. Ended up with 0 damage and 480 exp doubled lol....

Somebody said its great anti-scout, amx 13 90 will unload a mag into you before you reload second shot.

Had one game in it before I have taken look at diferences - oh yeah, this is why freeXP is there. Fun aside, this is a must.

What equipment do you use on it ?

I installed : optics, rammer and spall liner.

Seems to work fine.

why on earth you'd use spall liner instead of vents or vstab?

Finally aced the thing and looks like the scores are pretty low (not as low as WZ-132), but more reachable.

I was expecting it to feel like the WZ-132 but it doesn't. Except for the lack of armour it plays like an MT with the best LT perks - speed, agility and a bit more camo. Gun is a little poor and  I was very annoyed  also at having to try to find a radio operator. Rest of the crew were on the top of their third perk, but I've waited too long to get him up to at least BIA.

 

Tank is definitley a keeper though.

True that surprised me as well, at the begining I made few 1500k baseXP games, hardly reached "1" now ace was somewhere around 1250 if I remember corectly.

When I look on my playstyle I should think about it as well, ramming in this tanks is indeed a viable option and I like to use it. But than again - optics is a must; vents boost viewrange as well as camo and moreover its one of few things how to boost driver; rammer ... nah ... I cant imagine ANYTHING without rammer as long as it can mount it (few exceptions exist). Sadly, no slot for spall liner at my side.

I finally aced this thing with around 1600 base xp. I had a few 1300 base xp games, but those were only good enough for 1st class mastery. And I found it really hard to get 1400+ base xp in this thing, took me 541 games. :ohmy:

 

In the end I started to get used to this tank, you can really rape enemy lights with it. AMX 13 90 no problem usually. Just yolo them hard, and face hug them so they can only shoot turret. If they bounce/miss 1/2 shots they're dead.

After a flurry of buffs, I can say without a doubt that this tank is superb now.

Should someone read the entire thread, disregard my previous posts, they are irrelevant now.
It truly feels unique and useful now. Not as fun and mad as the LTTB, but a great little machine which can tackle tierX heavies if you absolutely need to do so.

Yes, and I have the feeling it gives a little less penetration (but that I really don't know). Just get my first mark today, grinding for the T54 :medal:.

I find that it detracks easily on little jumps, it's a bit annoying, ... just have to be careful.

It's quiet effective at ramming other light tanks. It weights almost as much as the normal T-54 and most scouts (don't ram AwfulPanther!) take considerable more damage than you take in return when you ram them with the T-54 ltw.

This tank is awesome. Mobility, firepower, camo, view range and somehow remarkably troll armour in one sexy looking package. :B

I have to say I actually love this tank above other Tier VIII lights I possess.

 

Its armour is so bouncy, mobility is fantastic and camo is good.

 

Yes the gun is not amazing - but it is accurate and what do you expect for a light?

I just got mine today and i ve got to say ive never played a tank that had a better stock set up. ITs almost unfair , this tank stock goes 70 kmh accelerates and turns nicely gun handles great and it actually bounced unlike other lights. 

Im half way tempted to sell my t44. My t49 seems meh in comparison.

Not sure how the gun handling on T-54 LW is, but I'm a big supporter of the Vents/Rammer/Optics setup. I only mount a Stabilizer on tanks with bad dispersion, because Vents is really handy. Especially if you also run Repairs and/or camo, since Vents will boosts those skills by 5%.

Well vents are always nice to have but when comes to stabilizer vs vents.Some ppl say stabilizer is must have if u can mount.I want to play more ranked team battles 7vs7/54 points.
