Hi,

I have decided to write a review to sum up this tank, I personally think quite similarly to most people so hopefully you find this useful.

 

Overall

 

The tank is a tier 8 tank which came from the very good new american light tanks, the very good T37 (review can be found here) is a absolute joy to play. So easy to grind!!! 

 

Then its the M41 WalkerBulldog , it is probably the best light tank in the game, certainly the best autoloader tank, making the t71 look weak. So again easy grind!!! Gameplay  can be found here..

 

Now the T49, 

The stock grind is pretty nice if you can afford the prem rounds, because the HEAT rounds on the stock gun is somewhat better than the top gun, the reliablility and gun performance is awesome. But we are surely not here for that gun right? But it will do for a nice stock grind.

 

Once you unlocked the T49, personally it made my stats drop from 70% win solo, 4.2k WN8 to 50-40% win and 2.0k WN8. So at first I didnt like it very much. 

IMPORTANT

its bad tank when you haven't got used to it, believe me it is fun afterwards. First get 100% crew so it actually hits, don't go 1vs 1 against other light tanks because it has bad self defence especially if you miss the target. 

The tank definitely need rammer and vertical STAB, third one can be coated optics or enhanced gun laying drive.

 

Mobility

It is not as mobile as the m41 Walkerbulldog but hell its not slow. In fact, its less sluggish than amx 12t and amx 13 75 for sure or at least in my mind it is. So its not really for a light tank just not as good as the previous one.

 

GUN

The Gun is like the kv2's 152mm except it is not guided by Stalin (jingle's words) , T49 does feel like it hits the targets far less, but it could be because t49 is faster by far so the aiming spread is high and kv2 is slow so the aiming circle not so big. IDK and IDC, the fact is T49 not as good in terms of accuracy as kv-2's gun. But the reload and such stats are slightly better so its still awesome. In my video, i did 1.2k damage to a conqueror and 1k to a WT-e100 so yea its good when it hits !!! :D

 

There is a lot of info and example about the gun in the video!

Is it Worth the GRIND? 

WEll, it is, because it is unique and fun (not OP) and even you dont want T49, M41 Walkerbulldog is a good enough reason to grind this line.

 

Do I recommend it 

 NO, to red and yellow players or players with low FPS. Too hard to control, and takes ages to aim so you could easily die and call this tank crap.

Yes, if you have 40+ fps and good stats for light tanks, and experience with derps or rather enjoy derps. 

 

Took me a long time to get this made, first essay I wrote so I hope you enjoyed this. And I am happy to platoon with people on EU.

 

If you appreciate my work, you can donate to me because I simply don't make any money from this and I do it simply for helping people.
