Ok, quick questions.

Grinding the HWK 12 atm because i always thought RU 251 was a strong light tank on par with amx 13 90.

Lately i have read its not as good as it used to, so wondering if i  should sell the HWK and put the crew back in the tier 5 Leopard?

I can ofcourse unlock tier 9 medium, but from what i heard this line aint worth it at all?

 

DId check the vehicle section, but never anyone there...

I don't really like it still, after 101 battles with 51,5% wins in it. I didn't play the HWK when the RU 251 became tier 9, but I bought it some time ago. Haven't played it much but it's a good one. I would stick with that one. I also kept the Leopard, because it's fun.

I quite enjoy the Ru 251 (have kept it to after also getting the tier 10).

If you enjoy light gameplay, it is pretty solid for me.

Just have an eye on little bumps and hills to avoid overturning your vehicle, this thing goes really fast.

I think back in the day when  it was a t8, it was even better tier for tier.

Nice tank, really like it. Works for spotting but is a great flanker. Gun handling (bloom) could be better so the accuracy would work out better. Don't forget to use the nice HE shells :)

It's the only light tank that can let me do the missions all the way up to the t55a missions.

I'd say its a good bit of kit

Ru-251 needs slightly better dpm or gun handling. Also depression to the fron should be buffed to model maximium (8-10 deg)

I got back to the Ru the other day and it's still quite nice. Not as fast as it used to be but it spits APCR now. That's an upgrade from the old potatoes.
