So to start things off, I'll say that I rarely if ever flip tanks. In fact I can't remember the last time I flipped in randoms (unintentionally) - aside from the LTTB.

Holy crap is this thing easy to flip. I am actually scared to press A or D. On FLAT ground, if you try turn to fast, gg you're flipped. If you hit the tiniest bump / ramp at the wrong angle, gg you're flipped. This tank would actually be decent at doing climbs. But the first time I tried climbing in it (Redshire climb, you know the one), you guessed it, I flipped. 

It's so freaking stupid. It's already one of the worse T8 LTs and is completely inferior compared to the M41 90 (but then again every T8 light is xddd). At this point, I'm concentrating more on trying not to flip this damn tank than anything else... :mellow:

It is easy to flip I agree if you are lucky you can roll right over and back again but I have yet to manage to do that consistently.

Meanwhile be careful its not as if it happens all the time.

In my experience it flips easily, but usually bounces back. Probably because it's fairly high and thin so it's not likely to find a resting position when the turret is against the ground.

Haha, wait till you play rhm-panzerwagen. I flip this thing on every little bump like every three to four games. It is a horror to play. Its manouverability gets negated by the easyness of it getting flipped. Next worse is Sheridan and after that follows directly lttb.

You have to be so freaking careful driving those lights that it negates the perks of their mobility....wg needs to do something there.

Wait, the hamster is not only shishx but also fishbob101? :confused:

Anyhow, haven't got experience driving the LTTB, but my A-20 is nigh impossible to flip, even intentionally unless driving on slopes or rocks.

I'm glad it's not just me does that, it's a very twitchy tank at times.

You are overreacting mr !

 

My LTTB flips the sheet out of itself all the time, but it usually lands on it's feet.

 

PBKAC obviously :trollface:

I drove over a small rock on Kharkov and flipped my Challenger. Swore like at hell at the imaginary dude who sits next to me telling me what I should have done every battle.

LTTB is quite bad indeed, honestly, I think a tank should not be able to go on it's side when a track is still touching the ground in general, the centre of gravity should move in the opposite direction of the tilt to prevent this. It adds nothing to the gameplay a part from frustration anyway.

If you need, I can always flip you... off.

The chances of me flipping my ltwt is higher than with the LTTB.

1. iam not a real goat, rather a mountain caner (Russians couild appreciate the pun), but the redshire climb from the b8 entrance (from hill northwards) feels quite failsafe on ltb 

2. but yes its flippin flippin! barrel roll is a must somewhere on by the river on stalingrad^^. I suffer too but its kinda funny and all is grinded and the Magic badge too so its justa funny fanny full of fannies (in my case)
3. once i have t54l that suffices for goating at least with my poor skill lol but spk of ltb - traction is poor methinks. for a climber

I usually flip my lwt 2-3 times out of 20.

Nah, this is common to most high speed light tanks with strong power to weight. I remember the LTTB from pre patch. It is very lanky and narrow so that coupled with such a fast speed and power it's not surprising it falls over and in general is a really nervous tank.. like a rocket with no tail fins or an old GroupB rally car. That said, as mentioned, this is common with many light tanks. I can tell you the AMX I have used thus far at tier6 and 7 are very prone to falling over often costing kills and battles in with it's a simple circling maneuver of a tank and next thing its on it's side and I'm like "really? I was driving a very gently incline? on my side? f*** you tank!" and the same is true of the German line I am grinding the SP 1C and  now the tier8 whatever its called, tall and shaped like a boat, most the time its ok-ish but it falls over a lot I just got used to it so a lot became "sometimes" lol

you need to practice more :) yes it's easy to flip it, but it also has a unique driving style, not really conventional :> gotta be more careful because if insane acceleration and cornering should be done slightly
