Spotted before anybody else :-) But even if I'm in a bush almost fully covered and Camuflage Net is ACTIVE it seems/happens that I'm spottted before I spot the approaching scout. Playing many scouts till now I can't belive that WOT would create a scout with such crazy visibility? I guess this is a bug? Are your experiences the same?


 

Thanks,  Joze

New crew on the tank? Are you shooting from the bush? Could be well built enemy tanks, because you face tanks with 400+ meters of base view range combined with crew skills and equipment that improve the already wide view range. While the LTTB has the average of 390 meters. What is your build?

Yes it is and I dont have an answer for it. Ive been spotted by heavies before I spot them and other lights and meds spot the LTB before I seem to spot them. Not always but to much for it to be random errors on my part.

Ive tried all sorts of load outs aincluding - Binocs - Combat Rations - Vents - Cammo Pattern (not net)

I was going for the full scout ability with that load out and ran it for about 20 matches but didn't see any improvement.  It might be that I need BIA although I dont think that will help. I think its just the way it is, but have considered if there was a bug in the LTB's cammo.. However in all honesty it doesn't bother me that much as I dont really use the LTB as a passive scout.  I use the LTB's most awesome maneuverability for Ninja circling enemy tanks and constant on the move scouting.

Thanks XCabs to share the same experience. Namely puttting questions to WoT there is no answer as usual or they claim that everthing is OK :-)

 


 

It is true that I've got almost no camoflage skills (only one crue member reached 95% now) but I've got camoflage net. And being hidden in a bush (static) with camoflage net active I'm spotted by any tank from a long distance. I have many other tanks with camoflage net but differnce is so huge that I don't think this is du to crew skills diffrenece.


 

Regards,    Joze

I've played over 300 games in LTTB with several Ace Tankers and have some experience in how camo works.

I have full camo skill and coated optics on my tank. I will tell you this: LTTB has a very good camo value. No doubt about this. 

 

If you want to prove it, just PM in game, we will go to the training room and I'll show you.

That's not true. LTTB camo is very much at the low end of the T7 light tanks. Only T71 and M41 are worse. WZ-131, AMX 13 75, Spähpanzer I C, Type 62 and AMX 13 57 all got better camo. That being said, it's still workable. But LTTB's primary features are the high speed and powerful gun. It's not made to sit in a bush and stay invisible.

AMXs are the same tank basically. So are WZ and Type. Which puts LTTB in the middle of the pack in my book. 

What is the actual difference in camo values for LTTB vs the highest tier 7 LT value? It would be nice to know.

In my experience, no matter the difference, it still outspots the tanks I want to outspot very well.

 

Edit: I checked myself. It loses around 3% to amx13.57 (which is better than amx13.75 btw). LTTB has 15.4%. Not bad at all, as the OP claims, but also not very good as I said.

I thought LTTB is an active scout?

Do you have any optics on the LTTB? Could be their viewrange is just better than your's.

If your LTTB is camping in a bush you're doing it wrong.
