There is an option to change the black version to the normal one.

Lol so I am not the only one waking up in a morning hoping for a super rare tank like say the Kirovets1, or indeed the the new cent, and find this offering in the shop?

 

Don't get me wrong this is a good tank, I am just finding this lottery of offers amusing now.

Nice tank not great camo but great gun ROF is a little low but what makes this tank is the ammunition.

AP HEAT and HEP that makes it an extremely versatile little tank especially if you can make good use of those 3 shell types.

- Mm broken?  check.

- 7 years of broken maps only to realise the solution was always symmetry (like in other games 20 years old)? check.

- obscenely overpowered tanks put in the game and pathethically allowed to exist to milk some more pocket change from the [edited]who will free xp their way up the tree? check.

- the power creep diarheea spewing out from Minsk made the game almost impossible to balance? check.

 

I'll stop here for now.

 

But most importantly: #walletclosed4ever!

I don't think it's worth it tbh.

 

Camo kinda sucks, p/w is meh at best, it's got a big profile, and the view range is ok for t8 lights, not spectacular.

It's a tank that does very well on open maps, and quite well on frontlines (great speed with good view range and dpm).

A big problem for me is that it requires a different playstyle than what many ppl assume a light should have .... which means you will get tk-ed/abused a lot and i'm kinda tired of being called 'subhuman' with no downsides for the ppl who do it.

 

For me it's either the above experience or 3 months of premium (where i could play more 'fun' tanks) .... i'd rather have the premium tbh.

Swapping would be morally wrong. You just don't trade in your old trusty dog for another simply because you like the other ones' fur better. Wrong, I tell you.

I wish it was OP even I might do great in it ;) but its not bad at all.

Camo is fractionally better than the standard Bulldog.

Speed good Specific power around 21 neither great nor bad.

 

Gun 90mm is great aim time good accuracy 36

Shell speed average really AP and Heat 830 I believe and the HEP/HESH rounds a little slower under 800

Penetration ok AP is 180 HEAT 250 and HEP 100

Damage 240 and 320 for the HEP rounds.

View range 400.

 

Its a decent tier 8 light tank but its more flanker than stealthy scout

How long will the swap take? I'm happy to get rid off the black camo and put the special T-55A reward camo on this.

In the right map and matchup, yeah.

 

You can compare it with the Type 64, good gun handling, but more like a medium/light hybrid than an actual light ... with 3 major differences :

1 - you can use vents on it, which kinda compensates for commander doubling as radio operator (more stress on him, you will need a very high skilled commander/crew to make it work)

2 - worse vision on it, tier for tier and comparable overall vision with type 64, because you can put vents on it while the Type 64 can't, but has 390 vs 400m view range and a dedicated radio operator (2nd skill on it will be situational awareness)

3 - high pen HE shell

 

All of the above while seeing t10's, which means tons of good vision on the field.

If frontlines was a permanent addition to this game, for t8's, this tank would be totally worth it.

Does anybody know if this new Greydog with additional camouflage has better camo value than the Blackdog?

 

Because if it is same, then it is just wasting of 450 golds for camouflage to have Greydog on same level as Blackdog is by default.
