LTTB in tier X game ... never, ever stop moving. You're not a bush scout. You can afford to sometimes in tier 8-9 games in order to snipe at exposed targets. But in tier X - if you drive less than 5 km you're doing it wrong.

Why would you ever not be moving in this thing? I got mine solely for the purpose of driving around like a maniac.

Well, I always try to drive in such ways that I don't expose myself too much. Prohkorovka is my favourite map in this thing, because I can keep popping up and down the middle ridgelines.

Really LT7 is difficult, and the above posters have most likely crew in their 3rd or 4th skill training and are experienced LT commanders, as you can see from their replies.

Hence they are able to the things they describe.

It takes quite a bit to command the LTTB successfully becasue of it's cons.

If you are interessed in LTing I reccommend to start a vehicle line with "easier" vehicles, i.e. US LT.

I had T-50 long ago, was one of my favorite tanks, thats why I got so many battles in light tanks in tier 4. I expected LTTB to be something similar, good speed, decent gun, didnt expect its turn rate to be this low

made this video long ago while T-50 still had 500 hp engine

Got kamikaze the other day... by rear-ending a reloading 13-90 that couldn't outrun me at full speed. While zooming past confused heavies of both teams. (All right, took me the length of the map to catch up, but still.)

 

Love this little beast. Fine active scout, fine scout hunter.

Scouting? Scout hunting? Spotting? NONSENSE.

 

LTTB is the stronk sovyet brawling tonk! Staluinium stronk! Gun stronk! 2 stronk 4 other teeny tonks!

On Himmelsdorf? But... how? :ohmy:

I hate Himmelsdorf in my Light Tank since it has so little space to manouver properly. Especially for a speedbeast like the LTTB.
TEACH ME!

Got few "M"s and even one Ridley on  Himmelsdorf  in LTs but never so awesome as this one. Congratz.

 

You probably dont have replay, do you?

I love this little armored beast. A few days ago i played peak aboo against an AMX 50B while hulldown. Both his shots bounced on my turret lol! those were his last shots, (2of them wasted on another tank). Then i proceeded destroying him. And this is not rare. LTTB has some stronk trollish armor sometimes.

 

A Velociraptor!

I do!

 

To be honest, I got lucky as hell in bouncing that much damage. A Tiger II bounces off my turret cheek that should have killed me outright. But hey, have the replay :P

Not achieved better than first class yet... but on a number of occasions I've come top of the tree in Tier IX games.  I   I am getting GREAT results.

 

Interestingly, while I have the Expert USSR badge for at one time having killed every Soviet vehicle, I am yet to kill an LTTB.   I'm out in mine at least once a day using the X2 to develop the crew before they get a ride in my fleet of premium Soviet LTs.

Another pretty good result of team circling hilarity: http://wotreplays.com/site/1370844#redshire-brachiaraidos-lttb

 

It's my T-50-2, reborn in fire and steel and PAIN.

 

Never been so happy ;w;

I'll be updating the links once I get round to uploading onto the site. I don't do it very often. It's not like the information you get is much different.

 

EDIT:

 

Also, Still loving this beauty of a tank

Here's a replay without sixth sense, tier 10 battle. Experience did help thou. A tip to further improve the situational awareness, adapt to not rely on perks/skills and play with fresh crews.

 

 

I really like the LTTB.
