Fully equipped + food you only get 45 more DPM compared to Blackdog with worse alpha, no HEP rounds, 75 mm gun that wont realistically overmatch anything, worse view range, worse top speed, same huge profile and bad camo.

 

More importantly, LT-432 shits all over both of those tanks.

 

Its 76mm, and it will overmatch every German heavy :teethhappy:

 

 

Remember, there is no Soviet Bias in this game.

If you are eager to give wg money and buy a tier 8 light tank, buy rashan LT-432 instead - it is effectively a tier 9 light tank and it makes every other tier 8 light tank obsolete.

I needed a Chinese light crew trainer, and more toys for Frontline, so why not. Where do I find the rental code after buying the tank though?

first impressions. Expected more after checking those stats. Didnt feel any advantage in mobility compare with blackdog. Maybe i need more games. Also tank is very fragile every hit even from small guns damages something.. Again maybe just no luck so far and need more battles. In general wouldnt buy it if i would try it first. Just do not add anything apart good looking:)

29,85/6,99 with BiA, camo, vents and piant.

31,01/7,26 if you add food

(...)

 

Basically the same as the other M41s, then. Not great news; the lack of camo (and the size) can be quite frustrating, though mobility might compensate a tiny bit.

The mobility is *slightly* worse (bulldog mobility is already pants) but it gets more then an extra shot per minute and very good aimtime and it's mobility is still better then the Blackdog (M41D has 10 more HP/t and same resistance values).

 

I make this statement as a good light tank player and I can tell you, firepower is more important on a light then mobility is in most situations. Couple that with the fact that light tanks already have better mobility then other classes, even this one, so it hardly matters.

If you have TS, I think I need you to train me on these damn LT's for sure they are like quantum science to me :trollface:

 

January must be the moth of LT's for LT lovers, as we were all waiting for the French go cart, and BAM, right out of nowhere we are hit by this, my mentality screams buy it, my common sense say no.

Why you are so bad at timing and marketing? At least create a reason for this tank to be in the game, make an event or something!
Why is this tank more powerfull than the regular bulldog? Isn't that pay-to-win, do you know that this is hurting the game???

Why you so lazy? 9 parts of same camo for all maps? Really?? in 2019??? It shout out that this is unfinished product!

You create  facepalm not a new tank that players are asking for to buy.

There is no reason to buy this, many not to. Hope you listen.

 

 

Do you mean celebrating the Chinese New year aside? ;)

I'll probably end up buying it as so far I have bought all premium light tanks, I'm kind of addicted to light tank play.

That said I like my Light tanks sneaky and the bulldog is not the most sneaky of lights.

Only had the standard version because of the autoloader.

The Black dog is worth getting because of the 90mm gun and the excellent ammo selection.

 

Chinese version I'm not sure about but as I say I'm addicted.

So we reskin a bulldog, make it yet another nation (we already got 3 versions now USA bulldog, german and a german GF).. so why not add a 4th.

We reduce the view range of the light but then again increase the penetration and fire rate? :sceptic:

 

(meanwhile M41 US bulldog is crying in a corner)

 

The clip bulldog had way too many good days and bullied too many other players!

While I can understand the removal of my picture of a maid with a gun, I still think it was sort of on topic given the tanks name literally is "Maid".

 

Next time I do something like that I'll put in into a spoiler though if that's all right.

It was a threat by itself, true. But it was also a unique tank - and we've seen a departure of many unique tanks over the last years - most of them tier 6 lights that got streamlined though (and an ELC that has lost its mobility)

Say, ekeeboo, is there any possibility to get the old ones back as premium one tier higher? *puppyeyes*

I have both the Type 62 and 64, but this is still tempting. If I should ever decide to spend money on the game again, I might actually go for it.

I can't promise this, but that's not to say they won't be back, but I can't say yes or no or maybe, just it's a possibility :) The more interest there is, the more likely. 

 

I still have nightmares the game I forgot to change from premium ammo clip in the bulldog :( RIP credits.

Just because thus far I haven't seen anyone share a screenshot, tier 8 only game but the gun felt really nice.

Your memory is failing you. Even the pre-pre-nerf Bulldog only had a 10-round clip, and the nerfed 9.18 version was already reduced to 6 rounds. At which point the tank was already not competitive anymore as it effective had less firepower than the T71 one tier lower.

They are rental codes not invite codes. They're meant to be a small trial and test out for those interested and a good way to reward engagements and contest winners.

You're right sorry, I'm thinking of the damage involved!
