The tier 10 lights have been out for quite some time now and so far I haven't felt like going for them, but I will probably need 1 to do the Object 260 missions. I've watched already some video's during the time they went into the game, but that didn't convince me yet. Please share your opinions here about all of them and tell me (and others that could make good use of it) what the best things are about each one that you have played so far.

 

Thanks in advance!

Dont go for the german line, it is ptobably the worst tier 10 in the game. The US line is pretty solid and so are the French and Russian ones. For missions, any of those lines should be fine, it just depends on your personal preference/playstyle.

Either the AMX 13 105 or the T100 LT in my opinion, the Sheridan is alright as well as long as you use the non derp gun. But it really depends on what sort of play style you prefer

I know. I just hope for some buffs/rebalance in the future, but for the most part I simply don't care. I choose most of my tanks by the looks and that gun poking out of the turret looks quite badass and that depression might suit my rather active (sometimes suicidal) playstyle.

Would also go for the US one, if it (mostly the body) didn't look that stupid.

Could you guys, instead of just naming, explain what you find good about them? Would be great! I'm not the kind of person that just goes for a tank, because someone says I should. Also I want others to be able to use what you share and make a choice for themselves.

T100 - best scout, great camo

AMX 105 - autoloader, mini BC 25t playstyle 

Sheridan - gun, I guess? but looks horrid, like a can of sprat with a turret on top

132A - best medium like playstyle, gun is nice, turret is nice + camo on the move 

german one - don't bother...

 

I just played on the test server though. I would personally go for T100 or 132A, because I like to be a sneaky dmg dealer... 105 ? nope, rather play BC. Sheridan is fugly man... and german one is simply thrash imho, worst of the bunch.

Personally I decided not to get any T10 lights at all. It's not worth it, all my missions are done. Why would you want to drive a gimped T10 tank, there's no reason for that.

It's all about hull down meds and heavies these days.

Pretty much. Why would anyone want to play t10 lights (well, i know, for weenaids padding) is beyond me. Sure, they can be fun to drive around, but maybe for 5 games until you realize driving around doesnt win you any games and that in fact you are useless in them most of the time, compared to any heavy/med.

AMX 105: Autoloaders in general are pretty powerful, and the grind isn't that bad as far as I know. The AMX 13 90 is also a very good tier 9. Decent mobility (struggles with turning) and good camo.

T-100: Best scout in the game, probably. Small, good camo, fast, but the gun is nothing to write home about. The line is again not a terrible grind from tier 8 on. I haven't played the tier 7, so I can't comment on that one.

Sheridan: Has a good gun, I've heard, and is a pretty solid tank after the buff. the line is, again, not a bad grind with some great tanks like the T71 and the T49. The T49 is by far the best tier 9 LT when it comes to firepower. Biggest downside of this line is the mediocre camo and the tanks are rather large.

They aren't even good for WN8 padding. If one wants to do that low tier lights are much better.

Got T-100lt last Monday. Most fun I've had in the game for quite some time. Still need proper crew for it but works fine as is as I did LT15 even almost without trying.

So you basically suggest to the OP a "cool looking tank" when he ask for a good tank to do the LT missions ? Sounds like a dinger's answer, owait...

I wouldn't use a Tier 10 Light Tank to do the missions, if I were you.

 

Some are easier with a Tier 6 scout, others with a higher tier scout. All tier 9's are good scouts, btw, and they're more than capable to complete the missions you think you need a Tier 10 scout for.

 

However, a good crew is important, as it really makes a difference.

I wonder where the German gets loaded, considering how the gun depression works.

I was doing that also so when we could test the hd maps on the sandbox I tried them with the rhm. 

 

Never had a tank where I flipped on my side as much as with that tank. Every bump is a risk of flipping. Way to unstable for me so put the accelerate crewtraining on again on the ru251. Not going to bother with that tier 10.

 

I do like the Sheridan though. And am slowly doing the ru and fr ones now.

You should try Pz. 38 nA... l flipped so many times in that bugger, so annoying to not be able to maneuver at full speed ! Literally only use max speed in a straight line if you don't wanna make a fool of yourself ...
