Who plays tier 3 anyway? Don't get me wrong, and gift is nice ofc, but I didn't touch my T7, LTP, Pz2D and such for months... play 1-2 rounds once they come in garage and that's it. 

 

All my gifts are taking dust right now.. I play more often my T-127, Pz S35 and FCM Pak.

 

But when I find a platoonmate which also kept them, I pick one for a drive and it's pretty nice.. :) I just need a platoonmate.

Low velocity i can cope with... that accuracy is beyond horrible but what might kill this tank is the supposed high arc shots. no gun in game should ever fire in such a terrible arc. the cruiser with the derp gun made me hate that kind of gun.

To the contrary, it will be amazing to have such a high arc. Consider the possibilities for shooting over cover or penetrating the top of some poor sod's turret. Grenade launcher, baby.

My equips are currently Vents/Bonocs/Net currently.. cant use rammer or Vstab so im kinda stuck with what to use.. maybe vents/GLD/net? the viewrange kinda sucks.

So the game is giving me conflicting information concerning the AP shells depending on where I take a look at the shells.

In garage view: 28-48 penetration (mouse-over), 28-46 penetration (right-click).

Tank service view: 28-46 penetration (text), 28-46 penetration (mouse-over), 26-48 (right-click).

In depot: 28-83 penetration (mouse-over), 28-83 penetration (right-click).

 

Which is the correct one? And, consequently, are AP shells worth using?

 

*edit*

Oh, and for what it's worth; tank inspector says it has 37mm average on the AP shells (vs 38mm on the HE).

Bt7 art... OP in my opinion, get rid of it again. We don't need any more derptanks for players with 0 skill. We got the T18 and Hetzer for that crap..

It is nice little tank, played ~5 games and then proceeded to spend whole morning kicking them with T-127 and AMX 38  :justwait::trollface: With equipment I've gone for GLD, Vents and Binos:bush:

Thx for the advices..

At first I thought going with GLD, binos and vents..

 

But I am afraid being spotted when shooting.

Does it gets spotted easily when shooting? (I mean.. with tanks that have a normal view range)

 

If yes, maybe I should keep camo and binos, and pick the last between vents and GLD.. (but.. which one? ^^)

This tank needs to be removed ASAP! It kills the Tier-2 game completely!

Even the match-making is broken now. I play PzJgr I (Tier2) and get matched up against a min. of  7-10 BT-7 tanks >every< game!

 

How is this a "light" tank? My PzJgr I  just sucks compared against it.

Wait a bit before to play Tier 2 again.. ^^
It's always like this: during 1-2 weeks, they're everywhere, then after you see less and less of them, as people sell it/get bored/... .

It was the same for the LTP, the T7 combar car, etc. But I don't think you met a lot of them since you began to play WoT. ;)
Be patient and play Tier 3-4 instead, it will be fine. :)

Maybe because like 80% of the tanks currently used at those tiers is the BT-7A?

It's only 13½ tonnes.

A better question would be why the Sealcubber Ausf. J (at ~18 tonnes) is a light tank.

I wish my 2 J was heavier. These things can suicide-bomb me like you wouldn't believe. One ram to the front and they take 2/3rds of my HP, and I've got a Spall Liner installed. Sure, they go 'splode from the impact entirely, but still.

Nah, there was an M3 Stuart that was putting shots into my sides in that one Prohkorovka game. That guy was a PITA as well.
