Today, our Supertest server will see a brand-new challenger: a British Tier IX light tank with a complex name — GSOR3301 AVR FS.

Spoiler

It has all the distinctive features of the new UK branch of light tanks, including small dimensions and high concealment. As for its firepower, the top configuration of the vehicle has a 90-mm gun and that is why you’ll love it:

  • Very decent penetration rates: 232 mm for a standard shell and 254 mm for an APCR shell
  • Great stabilization when the vehicle is stationary
  • Accuracy matching the vehicle’s peers (dispersion at 100 meters: 0.36)
  • Good aiming time: 1.9 seconds

However, there are two factors that might eclipse your joy: moderate rate of fire (6.32 rounds per minute) and mediocre stabilization when firing on the move. Moreover, the armor of the vehicle is far from being sturdy, which is typical of all light tanks. The GSOR3301 AVR FS has 1,250 HP and is handled by three crew members.

Just as its Tier X successor, this vehicle will shine when used for passive spotting and fire support, as it has everything it needs for this role: small dimensions, a spotting range of 390 meters, and high specific power (37.2 h.p./t). The GSOR3301 AVR FS can quickly change position on the battlefield and arrive precisely when you need its recon powers or fire support.

So why is it still the case that alot of mediums always have better view ranges? Yet these tanks are supposed to be designed to spot vehicles..

So it has 9% better pen than the other tier 9 lights, and in exchange it gets 40-20% less DPM and 20% worse bloom stats. The balancing department is massively overcompensating for the increased penetration to the point where these vehicles are looking to be the worse line of tanks. 

Soft stats and other things here in cyka:

Why are these vehicles intentionally being balanced to be completely terrible?

the pen is still terrible as well which is the funny thing, like good luck against most semi armoured tanks atm with 232 pen, even 254 on gold is meh

So, +20 pen on standard and +4 pen on gold ammo compared to the other T9 lights and 1% camo than the best one is worth 25% worse dpm and gun handling? Yeah, I dont quite think so.

 

Also lmao at "has great stabilization when stationary". Im not quite sure, but i believe literally every single tank in the game when not moving has great stabilization because there is no such thing as penalties to accuracy when not moving... unless of course you mean by that that it has great stabilization when moving only the turret... which isnt the case as all other T9 lights except 13 90 have better dispersion on turret traverse :D And even when you take into account dispersion on turret traverse and aimtime together you find out that its at best going to be average at "aiming in at targets when stationary and only turning turret".

 

Man, one thing are these sorry [edited]attempt at balancing by WG, but the other thing is the constant lying and bullshitting of players like that that truly makes me facepalm hard.

I like how 254 gold pen is only 6 better than what the 13 90 and 132A have

Yeah, I can already tell that this is undeniably the worst tier 9 in the game, just like how the Manticore is the worst tier 10 in the game. I think they have ran out of ideas, so the "gimmick" of the British LTs is simply being totally useless.

 

At least the masochists must be super hard right now...

Sounds like a Sp1C with more pen and bigger engine.

I've read the RU forums. This is their opinion.

 

>They'd prefer something else (don't seem to care/like LTs at all. No wonder why the class is thrash).

>WVs render traditional LTs pointless (keep in mind, this is still just an opinion, despite the weight it carries).

>No anti-UK sentiment (as in none/Mitsubishi A6M//zilch/nada/nichego/rien/nanimonai).

>Those who support the line, say there's no sense in having it start from the Cromwell (go figure).

>They also expected a new mechanic and line candidates (Autocannons, and other vehicles. British names don't stick as well as Ami ones. Sorry).

Are we getting 5 new open maps that allow for passive spotting so this thing can 'shine'?
