This prototype of an airborne tank is one of the best scouts out there!

That should be the pricing of the EBR 75!

On topic, i have the tank and it's a fun little tank, at 

that price imo it's worth it.

"Incredible value!" *About to buy the tank*

"The missions included in this bundle can only be completed with the T92"

Guess not

? Are we looking at an actual discount here? Or did someone mess up the price tag? 

Could be because the tank is also available through the referral program?

 

Anyway, not interested. I want to buy the EBR 75 in a decent offer, until then its no deal.

What do you exactly mean? It is in the shop for € 25,05 for quite some time. Now you can buy it for the same amount including 30 days premium and some other stuff. Looks like a good deal to me or am i missing something?

Scout the American way, have super low DPM *AND* have your premium shells cost double the amount of other T8 lights for much less alpha, because "Reasons".

Great little tank both for active and passive spotting. Gun handling is very nice. I run mine with Vents, optics and Gun Rammer. Mobility is ok'ish and the camo rating is above average. The DPM, penetration and alpha on this thing are just bad.

 

My biggest grief is the premium ammo cost; 5600 credits for 210 pen and 150 alpha is disgusting and I think its one of, if not THE highest cost vs pen shell at Tier 8. And yes, I know that the tier 7 US light, T71 DA, uses the same premium ammo at the same cost and also has the same 210 pen for the same alpha. However, that 210 at Tier 7 is workable, but go one tier higher and you dont even get a pen buff???

Yeah they simply forgot to put the values in line with Tier 8 as this was initially tested as a tier 7 light tank. They did the same with the engine health (that was super low being at tier 7), when they moved it to tier 8 they also forgot to increase it. 

Luckily we were able to bring this to WG's attention quickly via the official channels and it was fixed in a hotfix.

 

The premium ammo shell cost and penetration should also be brought in line with Tier 8 lights since it still carries the Tier 7 parameters.

I've played mine 867 times and the amount of special shells that has come out of its gun is less than 10, as there's not much of a point to use 'em. The tank is fine.

While this may be true for good players like you and I, I'd much rather have the choice that when they are needed they don't artificially cost much much more then it's peers while having less alpha.

Yeah the cost is silly, especially for what you get. The standard shell feels better than one would assume it to be though. Like a laser needle that punches above its stated 175.

You know why that is? It's not actually a feeling.

 

The T92 has *VERY* little shell penetration drop-off over range, actually it only drops 2mm of pen over 500m if I'm not mistaken

Other lights drop something like 30mm pen over 500mm.

Just mouse-over the T92 standard shell in the garage and look at the penetration drop, now do the same for other T8 lights.

 

So you are actually correct, the penetration feels like it's punching over the stated 175mm but it actually functions like it should :)

Tbh it's a fun tank but the gun feels often like you are shooting marshmallows at enemies, due to low alpha.

 

Also, if you meet wheeled vehicles, you better pray they don't load HE...

Please sell the x5 boosters again, missed the timing to buy them last time because was super busy, damn limited time offers, probably misses more people who would buy them then goading into buying them because of "limited time offer" BS :(
