Hello, 

 

One month ago I've decided to go hardcore mode into Chinese tech tree. Right now, I am grinding through LTs, enjoying every tier. I think I am not that bad on them, 2 stars on 59-16, 3 on WZ131 and 2 on WZ132, but I am affraid of WZ132A. I is this light really that bad? I've read mixed reviews, and tank stats are really mediocre. So, will it hurt, or is it just castrated WZ132 which is just a little worse tier for tier tank?

I got to the tier 9 wz light (on old account) and I can say its no bed of roses you have to work pretty hard to get the most out of this tank. personally I found it best to play it as a support tank it is a mini medium. Never got to tier 10 :(

 

The gun is an improvement over the tier 8 but, out on your own spotting your biggest problem is the other tier 9 lights such as the AMX 13-90 and the T49 will 90% of the time destroy you.

 

the tier 10 is considered one of the best lights so i would say go for it but do try research as many modules for it before buying. the stock grind was painfull.

For me, t8+ is a joy, havent played the t7 thou, and the 59-16 is just so meh compared to the competition.

I've kept all the Chinese lights from tier 4 on, great tanks for active scouting mostly with usable guns. I found the 132A was a slightly buffed 132, as you'd probably expected, and kept the same playstyle. Nothing really changes through the line until you hit tier 10 as it has reasonable turret armour and a good gun so you can be more aggressive and play as a damage dealer.

 

IMO the whole line is pretty consistent between tiers, which might suit you or bore you depending on what you're looking for. Adequate is a good word to describe them - does nothing exceptionally well but doesn't have any glaring faults either.

Have you played the 59-16 before its massive nerf?
the beast had an autoloader that could destroy anything if you looked at it

and the Tier 7 is my favouritetank i have ever played
