So, I'm really curious about the cdc, that is this tank plays like a Leopard 1? I like playing with my leopard 1, i really like playing with lights.. (1,1k battle with the type 62) so I'm asking you guys: is this tank like a leopard 1/light tank combo? If so i think its worth the money if it WG will sell it for 7500 gold. 

(sorry for bad english)

Its more a hellcat tier 8. Light armor, good gun and depression, fast only in straight line, can not circle tanks. So no, no tier 8 leopard.

Hellcat is still OP in T6, alpha and pen above average for tier so no, this is nothing like a hellcat.

From what I have seen looking through my arty sights today, the cdc is easy to set on fire.  I have seen two of these tanks so far, and both of them burned.  Make sure you have a fire ext handy....

Yep just bought this tank , its definitely not to be used for brawling !!, it seems slow to turn and does not feel fast to manoeuvre , However good gun depression and load times but do not rush into battle as you are gonna get spanked.:D P.S its no hellcat

Hellcat has pretty much average pen for a tier and is not OP, want OP get T67.

Do you recommend buying it? I really like playing meds. Btw how do you play it? Support camper or how? What crew skills should i use? Camo or repair is the more useful?

Yep just played a few more games and WOT have really pulled the stops out and given us the plywood prototype !! However with a bit of skill you can earn credits with this thing .Pemertracking a T34 was fun :trollface:

I am playing it with Rammer,Stabs and Vents.

Clan comrade got this beast. It has a decent gun, very good gun depression, is very fast and midiocre maneuverable. The armor is paperthin. The hellcat has a least a decent armored turret. This thing has not.

 

In the beginning he plays as a long range sniper. Then he rushes in to flank.

At times it seems quite nimble over ground but then if you drive over some marsh/wet ground then it really gets affected.

 

I've been using it as a support sniper, the speed can be used to go back and attempt to decap so long as you're not spotted.

 

I was one-shot by arty on the highway map but that's my own fault for not moving when spotted.

 

I was hoping to use the Lorraine crew for this vehicle but there are only three of them......

She is primarily a support tank and nothing more. Used to flank unsuspecting enemies and show them who's boss. Cannot take a hit as she only has 30mm of armour on the front of the hull / turret. Also ammo rack seems to be made of paper as any penetrating hit to the front seems to damage it.

Bought it today, best t8 prem BY FAR

So much potential behind it, would agree that it has similar playstyle to leo 1

Requires a lot of skill and situational awareness to play though - it's very easy to suck out in this tank.

I average 2.4k dmg and 70k profit/game

Got this tank yesterday  all i can say is it's so much fun, till WG nerf the crap out of it when whiners start about the gun and the speed, they'll forget theres no armour and bad turning at speed. But use as this tank as support forget the moaners who want you to stop sniping, because

A) they dont have one and dont understand what role you are

B) they have no understanding of this tanks limits as a front line tank

Then when you need to it will brawl but you need to be a thinking brawler use every advantage you get including the terrain when brawling, But "ONLY" when you absolutey  need to.

Best t8 prem BY FAR?.... that is a pretty bold statement.

T8 is like one of the most competitive areas so basically you are saying this thing is better then the FCM50T (which is the same tier a heavy and gets premium matchmaking), the type 59, T34.... LOWE etc. etc. etc.... considering that on day 1 I killed a CDC from full health in a Chaffee I find it seriously hard to believe that this is the best t8 prem BY FAR.....

Next patch WG nerf CDC and you all lost our real money. Nerfing is WG trademark.

Great replay.  This tank is making FCM 50 obsolete.

 

The same crappy armor,  but much smaller target, much better CAMO,  more accurate gun,  slightly better ROF and aim time,  better gun depression, AWESOME mobility 35,3  HP/ton !!!

CDC has only 100 HP less (1400 vs 1500), has tierX MM, which allows much more income/XP gained.

 

If I had an opportunity to swap FCM to this hornet, I'd do it without 1s hesitation.
