Had the T71 before the bulldog was ever in the game and loved the little terror then sold it to pay for the next tank along the line.

 

When we got the bulldog i had to go back to the Chaffe to get to the T49 that was the goal but when i got the Bulldog i knew i would love this tank forever its not much different from the T71

IMO but i consistently have more fun in it and yes your right its a better looker than the T71 any day.

 

would i sell a T71 for a bulldog having played them both yes i would and i would not regret it either.

I've played both, admittedly I am still stock on the Bulldog and I've only played 2 games in it, but I must say it's very nice and fairly easy to play IMO. The stock gun is usable, but I've had to fire about 3 premium rounds to penetrate the back of a JgPz E 100. I'm really looking forward to maxing my Bulldog. The T71 was good as well, but I played it before the Bulldog was released. I got 1 MoE in the T71 but I wasn't particularly good at it because back then I was pretty noobish

After playing a few matches in Bulldog, I think we need a premium version of it just like Cromwell B. American line doesn't have any premium light tanks after all to train crews.

What are the Locust and the T2 lt? Chopped liver? I know they aren't the best crew trainers but at least the Locust matches the T71's crew layout.

Those 2 you named are pretty useless since they are tier 2 and 3. Tier 7 premium Bulldog with auto loader would be an excellent tank that would sell well.

Useless or no, that is still more premium lights than some nations.

You do realize that the lower the tier of premium tank, the bigger the crew exp bonus it gets, right?

 

Even accounting for generally lower amount of raw experience in lower tiers, that makes them better crew trainers (IMO thanks to greater pace of lower tiers). Also, locust is just pure fun.

Had both.  Loved both.  Switched crew from the T71 to the M41 for the standard 76 cannon and then back again when they nerfed the reload, but I have now gone back to the M41 simply because the T71 looks terrible in HD.

Did anything change this year regarding t71 vs bulldog ?

T49 derp was my target, but I had too much fun with the bulldog to sell it.

But I'd like an autoloader, and the 10 clip is too big for my playstyle, do you think T71 is still a good option ?

I quite enjoy the Bulldog, but find the autoloading gun to be both good & annoying at the same time. You don't need a 10round clip and the 34s reload is crippling! I am currently on the T21 pushing through to the T71 as I like the sound of its 6 round autoloader, 19s reload, slightly more accurate. The better turret dispersion is countered by worse moving & tank traverse stats.

 

T71 is smaller in size with slightly better power/weight but lower top speed.

 

Have a look here at the differences: http://tanks.gg/wot/compare#t:t71;2lxi200.c:m41-bulldog;5lxi200

 

I'm looking forward to it! I might even get the locust to help train the crew

I only own M41 Walker Bulldog. I just love it.

 

It's a great Light tank and really fun to use.

When are they gonna utterly destroy and nerf these retarded tanks? they are straight up miles ahead of every single tier 7 light and some tier 8 mediums IN GAME. no same tier light tank can handle one of these 1v1 in a million years.

 

f** the moron at WG who introduced Bulldog and T71.
