I've recently finished hating this tank with a passion. ( ground from stock with a 75% crew) to really quite liking it. ( 40% second skill)

Now that it has a vert stab, snapshot and smooth ride the gun is acceptable. It may have terrible stats but standard ammo will hurt anything it hits while damaging modules. The tank is nimble enough to get out of trouble once you fire and your camo is good enough to let you spot while reloading. Once in a while you will find a nice soft target and your shell decides to connect then its 800-1100 damage.

 

Its also not bad at passive scouting should it get the map.

 

I do think any major changes to the gun would make it o/p. Though maybe a reduction in bloom on turning the turret would not hurt.

I'd take a buff but to be honest it's doing fine for me.   Have had a couple of decent scouting games (3k+ assisted plus damage) and it consistantly buts out a good bit of damage too.   Unlikely to carry solo vs multiple tanks but can definitely help the team.   

 

 

And it did LT-15 for the T28HTC for me so I could never dislike it now :)

It's doing fine for me too. Just that it was mentioned at some point and I was wondering if out was going to be a thing.

Buffs to tanks I like can only be good :P

Yeah sure, let it aim fast, with a 90mm canon, not with a 152mm canon with 900 potential dmg

 

Why would you play this tank with a 90mm that is only viable with premium ammo?

 

Cobra 6

Much to my surprise I got lt15 (t55a) on Redshire in it, though without honours as I managed to die in the last 30 seconds of the game.

I've also come back to the T49 after giving up in exasperation acouple of months ago. I've found the best role for it appears to be supporting heavies on urban maps. It's amusing to watch Tier 10 heavies dinging rounds off one anothers turrets, then trundle out in the T49 and take 3-400HP off one of the enemy, and of course take out a crewman/module a lot of the time. The you get those moments when you get a side or rear shot and do 1000+ damage. :arta:

If the surface hit is not vertical or nearly vertical, depending also on the amount of armour, you'll never penetrate with HEAT.

To clarify:

HEAT bounces at a higher angle from the normal (80° iirc) but doesn't get normalisation.

T49 its a LT, but no one is complaining about having difficulties doin scout with it.....(if you copy/paste the complains, you can open a topic for a Tier10 TD) What kind of players are you????? not a team player, thats for sure. PS t49 has 2 options for gun.

the guns are what prevent this tank from scouting

and they dont run around with dropped pants all the time

152mm should have 10sec reload and 330mm HEAT pen. Too much?

Sadly pure scouting is a dying art I think. There's only a few maps that make active scouting viable and passive scouting at high tiers is difficult as everyone knows where the spots are. Hats off to those that achieve it on a regular basis. Basically LT's at high tiers need to deliver damage to be competitive. 

That said there's every chance I'm talking out my ar** as I don't play high tiers that often. My highest tier tank is tier 7 at the moment and I only have one tank at that level.
