T37 is a nice keeper for stronghold. Great all-around package. DPM, view range, camo, mobility and insane dispersion on the move. It's got a pretty decent HP pool as well.

Honestly though, I prefered the chaffee and my cromwell.

 

Bulldog is the keeper for pure fun.

 

Not too sure on the T49, but there's a lot of tier X tanks you can pen with HE if you aim well. Not all of them of course, but quite a fair few. Then there's always splash for the stuff you can't pen.

Also you can always take it into tier 8 stronk and wreck most Lights/meds/TDs/ IS-3 engine decks, etc.

T49 can do 400 dmg shooting Maus in the face.

That's not bad...

Chaffee and M41. The 41 has a great gun but is bigger but in the end both fun to play. The T37 is a good mix of both. If you can keep the Chaffee and T37 and get the M41. I haven't tried the T49 yet as there are too many mixed reviews.

 

The T49 has a very different gameplay. With its 22s reload, it does not play at all like others. Think about it as a fast mini kv2. It is a fun tank, most effective against soft targets. See them, build speed, pass right next to them, plant a 1000 hp damage shell in their side, continue driving while getting showered with insults :trollface:

 

T37 is what the chaffee used to be before M41 was introduced.

Given that the bulldog is super agile, big clip, good camo and has an average penetration better than most TDs and mediums at tier 7, its UTTERLY op.........

This has to be a keeper.

Anyone want to get in the ring with me and argue that? no, thought not .

I only have the T-37 right now, I really enjoy it, and so plan to keep it, but that might change when I get the Bulldog, as everyone (well, almost everyone) raves about it.

But, what is it with light tanks and getting tracked ALL the time?

I've kept Bulldog because it's a very fun light tank and of course T49 which I LOVE!

Edit: I dropped vents yesterday for gld on M41 and now I like it much better! I know that on paper aim time is really short but in reality the boost of gld cuts it better for me.  I'm starting to think that vents' boost is really small to actually significantly help with anything....

Have chaffee from its prem days, and i never sell it. Just a good machine.

T37 wel i liked it but not realy a keeper for me but a good all round machine.

M41 bd, wel awesome machine, have it and never gonna sell it.

T49 completely different kind of tank compared to other lights, 1 of my most favorites. U need a good crew.

 

I pick tanks for there uniquenes not how others play with it.

If going for the t49, remember this, it takes 500 games even getting used to it. (500 dont know but it takes a long time).

Play it as a light/td/arty mix, light it can spot (just not as good), td sit in a bush and declare the bush to be youre bush, arty just hit a t71 driving at full speed from 400 meters away, you need to lead the shots like crazy just like arty.

 

Ow some advise when driving the t49.

When you see a target, and he is more then 30 meters from you, you need to aim longer than 3 seconds. Always if going for a shot, take the shot from a position where you can atleast aim for like 7 seconds, or expect to mis.

If a target is more then 100 meters away, autoaim is youre best friend, why? at that range dont expect to hit any form of weakspot. just aim deadcentre on the tank and pray. (target must be standing still).

Never ever shoot anything other than HE or sometimes HEAT.

And if going for a driveby shooting Hold fire til you are behind the target and shoot them in the engine for some lovely fireworks. When doing this on the move, get extremely close to its engine max 2 meters from him for this gun is the biggest trol gun. If he isnt aiming at you, stop aim KABOOM in the engine.

This tank is the most dangerous machine when there are few low hp targets left.

Its not like the buldog or any other scout that ping ping away the entire game (wel i can but it takes loads of games and a skilled crew), this tank takes patients and lots of time.

I really shouldn't have sold my T37, when I unlocked the M41 Bulldog.

The T37 is a really good scout. I wasn't bothered by any shortcomings, when I drove it, apart from the low alpha but that low alpha is well balanced for a tier 6 scout.

 

The T37 is definitely a keeper!

All 3?

 

3?

 

Chaffee, T37, Bulldog, T71 and T49 in may garage.

Only 3 marked the Chaffee so far though.

Working on T49, got very close so many times, but it's also my go-to tank for when I'm having a bad day and need something take the edge off.

I keep abusing it too much.

have you been playing the same tank? bulldog can't hit ANYTHING when going over 20 km/h, it has huge dispersion values for moving...

 

And yet it still is one of the few high tier LTs that are actually viable...

WB is the best of the bunch, the rest, not really worth much.

T49 is viable too, just in a complete and utterly different way.

My T37 is cursed...for the last 3 days, i get almost entirely teams consisting of bots or worse completely horrible noob players...This is becoming absurd, i can't even get a decent result, cause my teams just fail completely getting shot to pieces in about 2 minutes or just lemming and even fail at that...If i had more hair, i surely would have ripped it out by now.

 

Oh and not to mention that the Camo-values on t37 are pretty much crap... this tank is like a light Maus

122 battles in with Bulldog and I am really struggling with this supposedly OP light tank.

Enemies rarely miss me and I get detracked all the time, so it's kinda hard work to get enjoyment from playing it.

I suppose it might improve once my crew get to 100%, but I by far prefer the T-37 right now.

Will I ever get the T-49? I probably will stick at the grind but it really is a GRIND so far with M-41.

Sold T37, not worthy anymore, will keep Bulldog and switch to single shot gun,

and yes T49 actually has improved a lot with the patch, very good tank now.
