As per the title, I'm wondering what is the selling point on the upcoming british lights, I would love it if they could mount an autocannon at tier 10 (balanced correctly, lol) or something, but when I look at the tier 8 premium it just looks dull and un-needed.

 

Why would anyone buy it or grind the line if they already have lights unlocked from other nations.

According to the 'blurb' for the premium in super test, high pen. 

 

But based on the premium stats so far, nothing, its just a bad HWK-30. 

 

The premium is bad to average in pretty much every category compared to premium lights like the HWK-30, LT-42, M41D, even compared to stuff like the Lttb.

Close - they will get the 183mm gun of the FV, but as recoilless rifle, slow shell speed (300-400m/s) and slow reload, but when it hits :trollface:

British tanks being bad is more a meme than reality these days.

I like to think they'll reach their top speed of 40 kph really fast.

Free consumable to put on the compulsory water boiler... tea bags.

Throw in a digestive and that should give 'em +5% any day of the week.

So far...

 

  • Rear mounted turrets.
  • Good penetration.
  • HESH to counter other lights and lightly armored tanks.
  • 10° of gun depression.
  • Good power to weight ratio.

 

The DPM is on the low side though and the turret front is really ugly!
