Hi all !

 

So I was wondering the following are the M41 Walker Bulldog and the T49 US light tanks overhyped ? In comparison to the Spähpanzer RU251 and the Russian counterparts the LTTB and the T-54 light?

 

If you look at the channels of QuickyBaby and The Mighty Jingles they give the Bulldog nothing but laurel leaves and medals.

Only Jingles says in his review of the T49 that it is essantially a small KV2 with a top speed of 72 kp/h.

 

So yeah let me know what you guys think about this and which LT you're driving.

 

Thanks for reading ! :honoring:

 

ps: no rage or neg rep ! Just a decent discussion !

i LOVE my M41. I really do. The auto loader on it is just insane, so it can do both damage and spotting VERY well! I was in a tier 10 game yesterday and got a top gun with mine

Even with the standard ammo ( apcr) 175mm pen is just fine for anything you come across.

i love my m41 as well :D the autoloader is a beast, even w/o the autoloader that little thing is pretty damn good.

the t49 is a kv2 with enormous topspeed, its fun, maybe not the best light but a lot of fun. get in a tier 10 match, throw your bowlingball against the touret of an amx50b, smile :D

The Bulldog is an extremely nice vehicle, though I havent attuned to it, yet. But at least I know the problem is the driver not the machine. As for the t49- I think it is not a good vehicle. Troll machine- yes, but a reliable scout- no. Other tier 8 scouts are much better. This 152 mm gun on the t49 means that u need to get close and personal with your target- that is not always possible nor is wise. As others stated before me it is fun to play especially when u hit soft spots but nothing more.

T49 is like arty with AP shells. Good for fun but bad for team results.

Bulldog is good for people who are able to play LT and extremely bad for people who can't do it. I have seen so many bulldogs that didn't reach damage equal to their own HP in game.

 

Both tanks are good in their small niche and bad everywhere outside of it.

I understand what you guys mean, I asked this question because I just see a lot of Bulldogs and baby K2's running around and not a lot of Spähpanzers RU 251 and not even te new Russian LT's.

For some reason alot of people still believe that autoloader = OP tenk, so they grind the US line, then see a big derp gun and get T49 just in case it also is OP. Neither is, and TBH I think that LTTB is stronger tier 7 LT, maybe even the strongest out there.

 

Spypanzer has a problem of very meh grind, tier 5 is so-so, tier 6 was nerfed so many times, tier 7 is just awkward. Not many people will gind it, even less will prevail, grinding afk panzer without engine unlocked on E-50 for instance is deffinition of terror.

 

US line gives easy grind (past worthless tier 4), many people already had Chaffee, if not elited then at least unlocked, and from tier 5 to tier 8 there are only good tanks in the line, something that cannot be said about Germans nor Soviets (although M-25 has been buffed, have not tested it since then, but it look soooo ugly...).

So I'm going to have a certain nightmare with the afk. Panzer because I don't have an  E-50 -_-

having the option to unlock either last gun or the autoloader, i think i'll take the auto

 

 

Sure, it got 4 second longer clip reload now because of the nerf, but compared to almost a second longer reload on the other gun, i think it's actually more of a viable choice now

I played my Afk Panther to elite before any of the buffs if got last year. Wasn't too much of a hassle, just mount the howitzer and spam HE from afar. Don't need much mobility then. Not that the top engine is that expensive, though.

M41 is the finest scout around for sure. T49 is quite crap.

Dont be afraid of the aufklaringsshit. I was not shure if i wanted to grind trough it but it was a joy when i forget about scouting and started to deal damage with the kønisch gun. Aufkl. has worse camo then nearly all meds from tier 7, play it as an mobile damage dealer and you will have fun.:B Im not more than an average bob and Auf is my 7th ranked WN8 tank.
