If only this 30% discount coupon I got was valid on something I'd want you might have had me buy this thing.

I got a chance to try it out and I thought it would be like the RU251 but it's twice the size.  It's more Leo PTA.  You need several bushes to hide in if you are going to passive scout.

Aye. They should have give it more hit points, more pen and released it as a medium.

It's why I said in my stream it felt more akin to a hybrid med-scout.

It performs far better than most play it expecting it to be fast. It's not slow by any means but it's quite a heavy feeling tank!

Was lucky enough to get a 5 match trial code.

Not really impressed. Speed feels quite OK, but that gun is not hitting stuff (at least in the few matches I played)

Blackdog felt stronger IMO

It takes time but i prefer the round velocity on it to the GBulldog.

And I'm sure was this released first and WG had just released the Bulldog into the premium shop you'd like something on that more. *wink wink

I wonder how many premium LTs WG sold if the HWK30 was the tech tree LT and the HWK12 were the premium?
