According to wikipedia Sheridan tank should be lower than Batchat and 2/3 the length of T62. Whats the issue with scaling light tanks size up in the game? Why we get light tanks "balanced" like that?

Looks the right size to me. Width is correct compared to T-62 and remember the ingame Sheridan is that prototype, not the production version, it's taller and has an overhang at the back of the hull.

 

Why WG used the prototype idk, it's ugly and was never intended for production in that form, but there you have it.

Yeah I think they should swap the model on the Sheridan since it looks like a kids drawing of a tank and as mentioned above was never intended for mass production. Just use the serial model, it's way better and yeah the exp model is HUGE, Making this a really bad LT.

They used this model so they could give it spaced armor and increase it's in-game survivability i think. The hull underneath that takes damage is a bit smaller, i've seen a sketch of it somewhere on this forum, and you can see it on tanks.gg if you clip through the hull. The "spaced armor" is actually floatation tanks for the amphibious version, the entire hull was made from aluminium so the tank was very light and could be dropped from airplanes.

You dont remember what WG did -years ago- to tier 5 german scout "Leopard" size? Now it is taller than many heavy tanks.

 

I played my Sheridan and it is too easy to hit for enemy tanks. For a light tank with so low armor (tier 1 armor) and soso mobility (bad aceleration and turning rate)... sheridan is dead.

Ever put the VK16.02 next to a Rhm Skorpion and seen the similarities?

 

It's all arbitrary

 

 

P.S. Compare the Sheridan to the Soviet T X LT and compare the profile...

Not biased at all
