How is the T49 with the 90 mm better than the Ru 251 again? How are the inferior base accuracy, gun handling and RoF better than the insane German 90 mm gun, that also offers AP, instead of that weak standard HE?

No one says anything bad about the Ru 251 when I am around!

 

How is the HESH of the Ru 251 not working for you? And what about the AP? I felt sad for the 90 mm gun on the T49, because that makes choosing a gun for the tank really hard - the howitzer is an RNG gun, while 90 mm has no useful-at-all-times non premium shells, and this is a tank that really needs to offer a choice between two good guns.

No need to worry about how to play with the derp gun, WG have solved the problem with a plan to move the T49 to tier 9 and take away the 152mm. That will only be available on the Tier 10 US light tank, which looks damn ugly.

I got this tank 2 days ago and I must say it was long time ago I had so much fun playing wot.

The only downside it when you hit a 50B for 900 dmg (yeah) and next shot hit a Skorp G for 300 dmg (wtf)...

 

I use vert stab, vents and optics. No BiA yet and no cola.

Oh, T49... What can I say. I just don't know how to love you!

This tank drives me crazy! Sometimes you hit a snapshot at 400m to a moving target for 900dmg, or side shot an Emil l for 1000... The next game you can almost hug the butt of a bat chat and hit a nearby building. IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!

 

I wonder if this "play for three games and hate it for a month" will ever get me to tier X... :D

 

Edit: My current equipment is Vstab, Rammer and optics.

Tier 9 heavies hit enemy tanks for 500 dmg every few secs. They have lots of armor and penetration. In fact heavies kill scouts like there is no tomorrow, but a scout kills ur tank and u come here to cry about that scout crippling ur tonk.

 

And tier 9 heavies have the same view range than a scout... do u want t49 to lose his derp gun?? Well, I want heavies to stay at 250 view range at tier 9-10.

If the T49 get's your [edited]in a heavy it's either A) your own fault or B) game is about to end and your getting swarmed anyway. The smaller gun is better anyway the derp is 4fun™

The derp gun should have been removed, they should not have listened to the crybabies. these things can somehow snipe me from 500m with the derp and take large chunks out of my hulldown tanks yea real good game design there.

Hey guys,

 

Almost unlocked the T49 and wondering what equipment to put on this thing. Training a crew for it, which is on 2,5 skills (Full BiA, SS, Smooth Ride, Snap Shot, SA, camo for third). It will take a while to unlock the boomstick, so planning on playing with the 90mm, which means that they way I will be playing it is more traditional scout than ambush / shotgun scout, so I am thinking, Vents, Vstab and Optics? Thx!

I am currently on 90 battles 6050 WN8 %61 WR with my little beast. Guess which gun am I using? Of course 90 mm! I played 1 game with 152 mm and hated it. That gun's reliability is absolute 0. As a gun handling lover player 90 mm fits perfectly with my play style. Keep playing with 152 mm and help me pad my stats more guys :)

P.s: Vert stab, optics, rammer. Also running with cola. 499 view range for now and growing day by day.

Boring and expensive gun.

 

152mm for the lols and profit. I use it as support gun to deal with heavily armored tanks in corridor maps.

I'm definitely with SirPotat0, in spirit if not in WR.

 

Yes, 152mm is great fun when it works, but mostly it doesn't and it can be very frustrating to play. With 90mm, T49 is a very competitive light/flanker with great gun-handling, dpm, depression and acceleration. Holy trinity of vstab, optics, rammer as is my default for all meds and lights (and food for t9/t10).

Tank is pointless, 152 with stats worse than the KV-2 and completely inconsistent. Fired 2 premium HE shells at another T49 only to do less than 900 damage. He derps me with standard rounds for over 900.

 

152 isn't worth it in any scenario, which was really the only selling point of the pile of junk.

Finally got mine a couple of days ago!! My first Tier 9 tank :B Freexp' ed the turret & 152mm. Just havent played it yet (work & RL). Also a bit hesitant to take it out, but I WILL! :justwait:

 

Vstab, GR, Optics is the way to go I concluded...?

Full HE loadout, or also a couple of HEAT rounds...?

Vstab, optics, vents(i use improvedVstab, it helps a bit, later ill use iVents, when i have required amount of bonds).No rammer because it doesnt care u reload 20 or 18 seconds, any scout still eat u alive if u not pen and do mistake. I use 4heat, 4prem he, else he. First shot always load gold he, then standart he. The most important thing: ALWAYS USE FOOD.

U need at least 3 full skills on your crew(better 4), commander: bia, 6th, camo, sit avareness, repairs, another view skill, firefighting (thats what i have, but its correct in order to get)
Gunner: bia, camo, snaphot, des.Target, repairs, ff.(u can dismiss des.target if not enougj skills and reset later).
Driver: bia, camo, smoothride, clutch br., repairs, (dont remember further because on my phone, will add screenshot when will be at home).
Loader: bia, camo, repairs, safe st., adr rush, ff.

Good choise of the gun. i played all my 1,4k games with it. If u want 90mm go play ru251. If u want fun when playing go with derp 152.

If you want go wotreplays search my nickname, there will be some replays with t49.
