It's not an easy tank to play and even harder to play well given it will tee Teir X so often . It can be enjoyable but will bleed credits if you spam gold .

Good tank for experienced light tank players.

It suffers from 1 huge problem. Massively weak engine Hp.

You will get tracked and engine dmg very very often making premium repair kit essential.

I like it, it's a fun tank to drive around and shoot lazer peas with. Good spotter. Sure the 2 key is an expensive option but I've barely touch it so whatevs. :child:

Tier 5 gun on tier 6 platform that goes 60. its trash. only got viewrange and good HP/t going for it. dont bother with it.

 

@jackobsson. its got same accuracy as ELC EVEN90. it just aims faster.

like all light tanks, to really get the most out of them you need crews with a lot of skills. 

I really like the Elc Even 90, but it is crew skills that turned this from a sour lemon to lemonade.

It's fun if you like light tanks. But it's not a good tank. The gun is too pew pew with bad DPM.

 

If WG gave it same DPM as M41 90 has, it would be much better.

 

Also, the premium ammo is stupidly expensive, likely because WG doesnt really care about balancing light tanks at all.

That was updated shortly after it went on sale the first time. It shouldn't suffer engine damage any more frequently than other front-engined lights (the French ones). So it's still not great but it's better than it was initially.

 

From what I've seen of it, it has a combination of excellent gun handling, poor alpha and ridiculously expensive premium ammo with no armour and ok mobility.

If you know how to play lights it's a decent tank. 

 

it's not super competitive like a Defender, but in the current meta where tier 8s see tier 10 all the time it's actually one of the better options because it has high camo and 400m view range (higher than some tier 10 lights lol), so it is able to be a very good spotter even in tier 10 games.

 

Pros -

  • Superb gun handling, barely needs to aim.
  • Fairly accurate for a light tank.
  • High hp/ton, keeps it's speed well.
  • Good gun depression.
  • High Camo, IIRC it's only beaten by the T-100 lt and ELC EVEN 90.
  • High view range, on par with tier 10 lights and many tier 10 meds, it is hard to out spot.
  • Very little penetration drop off, even at 500m I think it still has like 172mm penetration. 
  • Standard rounds are APCR so have nice shell velocity at over 1200 m/s

 

Cons -

  • Low top speed at 60kph, so can't out run even some mediums it faces.
  • Very low alpha damage at 150 and DPM is not stellar.
  • Low hit points at 1k.
  • Low standard pen at 175 for a tier 8, though no worse than other tier 8 lights.
  • Crap premium rounds with only 210mm of penetration and they cost an absurd 5600 credits per shot. 
  • Turns like a bus on soft terrain.

 

Overall I like it, it's a very comfortable all round light tank, it rarely lets you down, more often you will let it down. 

 

Still think it needs some buffs, particularly DPM, it needs like a 30% buff in DPM IMO, as well as maybe a top speed buff to like 70 and fix the traverse on soft terrain.

It's fine, it's no 13 57 or M41 90mm GF but it does it's job and is very good for kemping bush.

 

Terrible on city maps but then the lions share of lights are, and it's mediocre at best if you're caught in a one on one vs 80% of other lights.

 

One thing I would say majorly in the negative is that its on paper mobility stats are very impressive and seem superior to equivalent light tanks but they are in fact pure fiction, this thing does not handle well at all compared to most other T7-8 lights, yes even french ones.

It's traverse is poor, especially at soft terrain. In general its ok light, but traverse should be a little better.

All tanks are crap apart from the 268v4.
