They're quite fast, indeed.

Their potential is just impossible to use on our tiny corridor maps...

As with light vehicles you will have a few options. 

 

A: Go pick on other light tanks

 

B: Spot effectively wait and hope your team's not utterly useless. So when at least half the enemy team is dead you can then start driving around more freely causing havoc.

 

C: Watch the map and go down the corridor that has less tanks and pick off lone wolfs / wolf pack

Well... their mobility has to be countered by something vs the 13 90. It might be worse camo, a worse gun or a way longer clip reload, making their hit and runs more rare. Or even way way less HP making any derp even 2 tiers lower a dangerous foe. 

 

As WG have said before that wheeled tanks have been a pain to try and balance. I guess they found a working way. 

 

 

 

 

Tho anyone that faced the old T-50-2 in their meds is already used to being bullied that hard.

as far as I recall, physics was modified considerably to prevent lights to fly off at every dune. I wonder if these thingies will face the same fate. 

On the other hand.... light tanks are getting even more obsolete.... Now they are not the fastest anymore.

How about less hp since they can only be lighter and carry less armor and worse module health especially wheels. They shouldn't have that much traction either even with those steel roadwheels since the footprint is way less than with tracks.

They are going to release a whole line(s) of wheeled vehicles and ofc the premium(s) will come first. As always

If there is a premium for it that is.

 

But we don't know what tier they will start from. If it's tier II or if they will jump in with it at tier 6 etc. As all their new video about it said was more or less that same video with more info coming soon. Tho they showed a ton of new maps. Inc.... the worst on console. The China server exclusive Emperors border. God I hope the K line is not the new Lakeville valley like it's on console.

Well done, Wargaming! Looking pretty darn good.

 

Just don't spoil everything by making them like our current LTs. LTs and now WVs should be all about speed, on-the-move accuracy and accuracy in general and stealth.

Not the potato launchers with worse accuracy than HTs, which doesn't make any sense. Also, leave aside the "LTs aren't meant to be the primary damage dealers" mentality.

 

Looking very forward to this... as I already have the appropriate crews for such vehicle.

 

France is finally making its comeback at those surrendering jokes.

It will start from tier 5+ as said on their live stream today. I'm guessing it will branch off the French tier 5 scout. So get it or if you got it untick accelerated crew training and save up some XP

 

And ofc there will be a premium when did they say no to money? And trust me the first wheeled tank premium especially if it is to be released before the actual line so noone can get hold of the NEW WHEELED  tank for free; will cause people to rush and open their wallets for it. It will be a gold mine and they know it. So for sure a wheeled premium tank will come out at least 2 weeks before the actual French line.

 

If not then they are very stupid indeed.

According to their live stream they will have better gun and mobility than current LT. But much worse view range. So effectively they will act as combat scouts rather than passive scouts with great view range.

The rally car sim that is WOT has now gone full WRC.
These things will take suicide scouting to a whole new level. Do three laps of the enemy base before the enemy clickers have even taken a slice of cake.

Well, if we go by AW's wheeled tanks. Vs a tracked they have drawbacks as is. 13 90 can turn where he stands. As in the tracks each going one way to turn it around on a dime, so you can turn around in a corridor fast. These won't do that, as they have to drive in a direction to turn. So 3 point turns ftw. But their reverse speed was fast. But still, if they want to turn, they have to move forward. And that's gotten me killed a few times on AW vs tracked in the same situation.

That's true and wheels will make you go faster. Also the tank shown you can raise all four middle wheels. Giving it two modes, one superfast and one for better turning
