At first I thought this machine wasn't much to write home about. Quite big for a light tank and not so agile. In fact I thought about selling it on numerous occasions. But now that I have a 4 skill crew, BIA, vents, rammer, vertical stabilizer and chocolate it's a completely different story. No you can actually have a profound impact on the game and at times even dictate it. Which is nice :). Chocolate costs 20000/game so obviously credit making potential takes a hit but then again potential for big games with big income goes up so I don't know, they might cancel each other out. But for me the sheer increase in fun factor is more important then credit making. Now if it only was a bit more agile and had 10 degrees of gun depression that would be lovely. Wargaming pretty please ;)?

Agreed.

Maybe they will offer it without the Camo, the same way as they did with the AMX 13 57 :great:

The tank is bad, I can not understand why people want it so badly. In fact it is not a competitive tank: it plays like a non armored-low pen-high profile tier 8 medium.

 

Poor agility and very, very poor acceleration.

Not enough cammo for active spotting.

Not enough pen to reliably pen even some tier 8 meds, crappy heat.

Not enough dpm to face new tier 8-9-10 autoloaders.

Awful accuracy (german accuracy, you know).

Awful accuracy on the move.

Poor viewrange given its MM.

Really big, no armor at all (compare with low profile frenchies and armored soviet light tanks).

Not enough gun depression.

Tier 8 MM: 70% of time facing 3 tier 10 and 5 tier 9 tanks.

Hi, does this tank has a really low credit income or it is just me ?

I know I am not a good scout player (I don t play those), ending with 15k credits each game (standard acc - normal ammos) seems very low.

Do spotting damage have higher income ?

I really don't understand this tank ... I suppose I'll have to insist.

It's broken.  Utterly useless.  The gun is terrible.  The only time it works is if you're top tier.  Worst prem I ever bought.

It is a huge dissappointment for me too. Could it be that this tank has to be played as a very mobile flanker cross over instead of as a scout? You know, use the mobility to be there where your gun is needed the most?

Works well in Frontlines mode v other tier 8s but not so great in random battles against tier 10s.

 

Such a pity because it's not actually a bad tank, it's just too big and not good enough to compete as a high tier scout vehicle.

this thing should be played like a paper medium with so-so pen, due to its height and pre-light DPM.

scouting is a secondary role and should be played with care, unless you really know what you are doing!

 

the gun/ viewrange is what makes this tank powerful, I have 5.7 sec of reload with the gun, that also has very nice on the move stats, has noice 250HEAT and 102meme HE to deal with lightly armoured vehicles, and if you land it well you can ruin a wheelies day, but don't try to engage them... they will HE pen you for days while you have to carefully lead the shot

It is a great LT but I can't help feel the LT-432 (Rashan LT) is simply a better all round package. Has a bit less firepower but APCR standard and actually has both armour along with speed.

 

But yeah the different shells the M41 90mm can fire is great as you get a lot of options rather than just spamming one shell hoping for a decent hit.
