The Grand Finals may be over but definitely not forgotten, especially if one has an outstanding memento!

Well....I really don't see why anyone would buy this light tank in it's current stats.

 

You have this tank on T7 which has a clip of 8 shots (nice but thought it had 10?) but a lousy penetration of 143mm and a damage of only 90 (!!!!) per shell. While the DPM might be quite good (~1950) the *effective* DPM will be a *lot* lower due to the horrible penetration.

Meanwhile you've got the absolutely free Bulldog at T7 as well with the same 10 shot autoloader but 175mm penetration and 150 damage per shell.

Also, mobility wise it's pretty horrible and gun depression is lousy as well.

 

This vehicle raises some valid questions:

-Why does this light tank have 22%+ less penetration than it's peers while it has the same matchmaking?

-Why with such lousy gun stats is it not compensated in the mobility?

 

I mean, just look it it compared to the competition....

 

And don't come here with that nonsense of: "But it's a premium tank / I love mine" because the stats don't lie.

For a bit more money you can even get the premium T8 Bulldog which is vastly superior to this thing.

Anyone thinking of buying this tank...

 

..get it.

 

Insanely good fun.  8 round clip with an insane rate of fire (about 1 second per shot) giving decent burst damage potential.  Damage and pen is on the lowish side but then it's a light tank - you shouldn't be engaging enemy heavies front on.  Seek flank and rear shots into otherwise occupied enemy tanks and watch them panic as you rip ~800hp off them in a few seconds, then run away and disappear before they can react.

 

Clip reload is around 15 seconds which means you can spend more time shooting and less time trying not to be spotted whilst you reload.  I think this also makes the tank more useful overall - popped a few shots off?  No problem, you can reload the entire clip quickly so you are at full ammo for the next engagement.  This is something that other autoloaders struggle with because of their longer reload times.

 

Makes excellent credits since it often gets into tier 9 and 10 games where all you have to do is spot stuff for your team to shoot.  I once made a 100k profit in a game where I didn't even fire a shot.  Ammo is cheap anyway, as are repairs, though the overall ammo capacity is on the low side, so try not to waste too many shots.  On paper, the accuracy seems poor but my experience  (almost 300 games) is that you can lock on to a target and pump out a clip of 8 shots very quickly and still get more hits than you might expect based on the stats.

 

On the downside, the acceleration is sluggish, any shot to the front is likely to take out your engine and set you on fire (training your driver in preventative maintenance pretty much fixes this) and the ammo rack is (understandably) weak, though outright death from ammo racking is relatively rare.

 

Camo is excellent, this is one of my favourite passive spotting tanks and it's obviously a nice crew trainer for the AMX 13 90.

 

It may not be a meta-gaming tank but it's a little tank with a big heart and is a lot of fun to play.

Thanks for answering!

How hard can it be to put the correct notification in the game? I mean the splash screen is:

- for FCM50t tank + 2500 gold

- for the period March 3 to 8 or something

The title of the splash window you get when logging in WoT is the only thing that is correct and made me check the specials on the premium shop.

 

Bought this tank as crew trainer for french light tanks, AMX 13 90 players annoy the hell out of me so it must be good tank to use. So bought it to make the grind easier when I start the french line of light tanks.

This tank is good for training the 13 90 crew. Main reason to buy it. That's it...

You might just be the only one... can't say I'd be bothered to get one even if they gave it for free through a mission.

Well I do want it even though I will detest the white logo every time I see it ;).

Couple of points if you want to sell more premium tanks the logo should be an option not a fixture this is a semi realistic tank game.

There are already small numbers of tanks with advertising I have one the black bulldog this is the other.

If it takes away some of the immersion factor you have fostered with better and better HD graphics the advertising slogans are doing more harm than good.

You will sell a lot more of both without them, just make it an inscription players can change at will.

 

Ultimate edition version has a crew with 100% in major qualification, which is a 100% crew nothing more then why not just say comes with 100% crew thats clear enough.

You see we have the female crews 100% major qualification, plus 100% sisterhood of steel, plus 100% in the first skill they choose.

We have the Berlin quartet crews 100% major qualification plus 100% in Brothers in Arms the first skill you pick is 0% as normal.

The term major qualification could confuse and in all honesty whats the point in giving a straight 100% crew on this premium tank its going to be thrown away "hopefully" No real advantage in using it as you will want to use the crew of your other French lights.

 

You could retrain them as a crew for another French tank but then you could recruit one for the same cost, and if a player is expecting more than just a 100% crew you just disappointed a paying customer which isnt a great idea.

Your programmers are doing a fantastic job don't ruin their hard work with flawed ideas

What is it with all these picky people?..... Is it really that bad and does it even matter, its the tanks characteristics that's more important, not its looks, just saying ;)

People should stop whining about that logo every single time this tank comes up for discussion. You can download skins that remove the logo, so it's a non-issue. Just people looking for an excuse, great then don't buy it.

For me the look is important as characteristics. And if they want my money, just need to add an option to remove that logo. Just will wait for Type 62.

Because it's a premium tank so it's supposed to be weaker. You want a competitive tank, buy a regular one. And you can't train french crew in a german light. And games are supposed to give you fun, keep your stats for competitive play. You're here for so long and you still don't understand the purpose of a premium tank. And why do you write your nickname in every post? Cringe.
