A lightweight medium tank with heavy armament: this is Sweden's new secret weapon.

Looks decent. Already own the primo victoria though and dont have any mid-longterm plans for the swedish line, so I will give it a pass.

Personally not interested though.

Though it looks cool, 11.5 euro for a 3d style is a bit much.

Have not tested it but I played next to one two days ago. Posted screenshot here. We teamed up in a crossfire position on Cliff and his shot numbers made my "shitty gun" alarm go off. :harp:

Since the Leo was such an atrocious tank and this looks very much like it, I'll skip for now.

 

Let's first see if the Swedish medium branch, the regular tanks, are competitive and useful before investing in a premium tank.....

 

Basically the Lansen C is what the Leo should be minus the penetration and 200 DPM, one tier lower.

Little puzzled I thought the new Swedish medium line had a new-ish mechanic.

Yet it appears this premium doesn't have it.

Finding that a little odd will there be another Swedish medium in a few weeks with it ?

good thought on that, i guess there will be another tier 8 premium, so the buyers of the primo and lansen will be f*d up... so, ill better wait for a prem with the new mechanic then, too.

If you compare it to Progetto, Lansen seems to be somewhat inferior. If the terrain resistance would be more favorable then maybe but now I just can't see this being a good tank. Have to wait and see the reviews though, just first impression after checking the stats.

Too early for this one, need to see the actual release of the top tier swedish mediums.

As already said it in my video about such skins, I welcome it, yes some people might argue that the price is steep with 11€ for the 3D skin. I compared it with fully painting and camoflaguing a T10 tank with emblems, decals, worn effect and inscriptions and came to a comparable gold price. And here you have the difference. In game you solely change some colours and emblems yourself, here someone activly went out of their way to make nordic runes and have a look at viking history ( like NOT having those horns on their helmets :D)

I definitly think that 11€ for a skin like this is an acceptable price when you think about someone putting effort into it like this. I myself support this. I once more want to pitch my idea I said in the video. Maybe think about giving people using this skin a bonus to the vehicle, like 50% more free exp or 20% cheaper repair cost, something minor but still relevant enough to actually buy the skin. Something like WoWs does... ( Btw WoT, WoWs is your sister ;) they got some good ideas, let them copy their homework :P)

 

Also please keep on doing skins as they might be a good way to monatize the game without introducing OP premiums which can not be balanced anymore after release.

 

I try to have a look at the tank this evening in a video if some people want to come and stay around.

Thanks for your attention and have a good start to the weekend.

 

Cheers

RagingRaptor :honoring:

Other than training swede crew I don't see why would you pick this over the revalorise.. if it had the mechanic of the new swede mediums and like 225 pen then it would had been 100% worth it.

First: 12 euros for a skin? Gtfo WG lol

Second: Its a bad to average tank at best? Meh gun, meh dpm, bad armor on turret and hull, average mobility

 

Dont get me wrong, I dont want another chrysler K in the game but this tank is not unique at all? Its meh in everything
