Was going to go for the Batchat but now seriously reconsidering going down the German lights to get the Rhm Pzw (god that thing looks like fun). Anyone here have experience with these tanks? I heard the tier 7 & tier 8 are pretty horrible from a friend.

The HWK isn't bad but the SPIC is pretty crappy.

Apart from that, the rest of the line is superb, just as long as you stop at the RU251.

And the Luchs?

If you haven't played the Luchs I suggest you get right on it.:honoring:

I'd get the Tier V Leopard and then play nothing else. IIRC, RhmPzw is the worst (?) of the Tier X Lights, or atleast I certainly don't recall ever hearing good things about it.

Oh I thought it was good. Joint highest view range at 420, fastest (75 kp/h), most accurate, fastest aim time. Oh, nevermind, just realised it has 320 alpha.

I only have the Luchs and the Leopard. I'd also rather like to keep them both, cute little murder cannons that they are. Tiers 6, 7, 8 all look pretty crummy to me, so I can't get myself to tackling that line.

Use daily doubles and personal reserves boosts to make the grind easier.

Probably not gonna do it now...thought the Rhm Pzw was good until I saw it had 320 alpha :(

It has a more powerful HE round with 120 pen though, if you're really looking for alpha and not joking right now.

 

Anyhow, think the tank's strength is actually it's view range (420 base), and not it's brawling capabilities....

I gave up this line when i got to SPIC.

It's unplayable and I don't feel like spending free exp on it for the moment.

There are other tanks to play anyway

if it's the last line you have to grind, grind the german light line; imo that's how bad it is :P

 

and the tier 10 light is bad; by tier 10 light standards(which are already bad)

+1 on this. You could actually stay at the luchs :) I've gone up to finishing the grind on the RU. And while the RU HE i amazing fun it isn't as fun as the luchs.

It was a fine tank with the old light mm. Then it got essentially downtiered without chaning the stats.

 

The little autocannon is fantastic but very temperamental and I guess the tank really nees a decently skilled crew to be fun.

 

But it is still such an incredibly fun tank :)

Why call it a grind? I "ground" my way to the top tiers, decided they weren't much fun (especially tier8) and went back to play the lower tier tanks. They are so much more fun imho, and you don't get arty annoying you, at least nowhere near as much.

 

I suppose it depends what you think the game is about, if you think of it as a headlong charge to the "top" tiers.

luchs is good/fun
leopard is good/fun
vk2801 is the generic tier 6 LT
spic seems pretty overnerfed with LT patch so ehh

hwk is fairly good, slow shell speed can be triggering

ru251 is amazing

rhm pz; NEVER EVER BUY THIS. JUST NO. CEASE. NO.

I mean I like grinding - if I have no goal I get bored. That’s why I like to ‘rush’ to the top tiers I guess.

Honestly, they are very meh, the luchs and leo was fine, but anything above that is soooo meh. The RU is rather nice too, with the HESH that so many poeple fail to mention, then again, id take m41 90 get fukt over any german light tank at high tier.
