yeah, as soon as I saw that turret (other tank in battle), I gave up on M24 and bought a leo to take a look at vk2801
but looks like russians will be best (again)

On that topic, they probably gave the Chaffee bad camo rating since they top turret is, you know, pretty large. Probably same camo as KV, since they look so much alike.

At least it has 5 machineguns...

Well this tank was on my "wish list" but it's not anymore ... They killed it as they did for the Panzer IV ...

T50-2 is extremely insane fast, but has the worst gun and view range (380 meters)

M24 chaffee is still fast, has 460! meters view range and a 136mm penetrating gun, wich is 50mm more then 76mm and 30 more then 57mm

Okay it looks HIDEOS. Truly HIDEOS.. But it still is a nice tank

Followed the chaffee when I was already dead.

At first I was like... hey, this thing is really fast.
Then I was like... hey, its really small.
An finally I was like... OMG, WTF is that on top of the tank?

Better yet, give it the M41 turret. It has the same armour stats as that lolturret anyway (okey, slightly better sloping, but you can slope tissue paper all you want).

(Edit) Or even better, just fix the T37 turret's model. It seems way too high above the gun shield, just like our M36 model.

Seems like a fun tank from the little bit I've driven it on the testr server (mainly in training battles with friends).  The upgraded turret it ugly and can't be scaled correctly.  It's far too fat/big for the hull.  It doesn't match the pictures I've seen of the real thing.

Why oh why didn't I look up the tank before I ground all that XP to get it.

Chaffee is on my list of favourite tanks ever since they used it as a Sherman substitute in the highly inaccurate but still classic 1965 film "Battle of the Bulge".

Then....I upgraded the turret.

I want to burn the tank, I want the hours I spent grinding given back to me, some might like the turret and it was a real turret but it looks ridiculous on that tank. Not to mention impractical, with a hit box that large how the hell are we supposed to compete with the other scouts?

It's like a giant cardboard box in high tier matches.

True enough it has exceptional agility, the almost complete lack of speed bleed on turns is pure awesome and the gun is exceptional, but that turret is such a hard thing to get over.

It's functional don't get me wrong but the looks of a tank play a large part in whether I actually want to drive it.

Roll on the M41 Walker Bulldog (here's hoping it'll be added at some point in the future).

Also changing the model is simple enough to do but this isn't like giving the Tiger I a shorter gun barrel, using a far smaller turret model is going to have a negative effect on your gameplay due to the hitbox being bigger than what you are seeing, thus you may think you are hidden behind that bush or rock but in reality several shells are already streaming towards your turret.

Anyway, rant over, it's functional but frankly it isn't a Chaffee anymore.

Just proposing that we'd nickname the Chaffee with 2nd turret the "Chaffee Bulldog" as it is kind of a mix of those two tanks.
