Woah you take that back. It's super cute. And it fits inside the bush to give you 360 degrees of cover. That's amazing.

Super cute yes but too slow to get anywhere really fast, and once you are in that bush, you get insta spotted, insta deleted, any time I take it out, three minute game

Yeah okay but that goes for any tank you play.

Its a little slow to get up to speed and everytime it hits a wall or a tree and some wooden fences too it loses a lot of speed.

Other than that its great .

Guns too big for the tank of course meaning slow rof slow reload etc.

As a pure spotting tank its hard to beat as a hidden assassin its not too bad but against another light tank forget it.

 

You can hide and outspot everything

 

As for bring back the original ELC yes please do, or come up with a decent reason the current tank does not have its historical engine.

Current ELC 180 hp original and historical engine  250 hp

Curiously also the Historical version could rotate the turret 360 when stationary.

There is the next French tier 6 light or premium light if you must 250 hp engine 80 km speed  fully rotating turret  with the 90mm gun and some kind of siege mode to switch from semi to fully rotating turret,

Guys, speaking of this tank - it`s a dedicated passive spotter with some options to play as an active one as well so yes, hiding in a bush is usually pretty good tactics with this one. 


It is NOT really intended to fight with enemy LTs - the gun does not really allow to engage a 100% HP enemy LTs as the potential damage is too low, and the clip reload is too long. Also, speed loss at pretty much any obstacle means that fighting enemy LTs can end unexpectedly fast. 

That being said - it`s a nice tank if you want to spot and be an actual scout, and the gun is good for a sudden attack to the side or rear of enemy vehicles to quickly deal damage or finish off a damaged opponent and retreat until another clip is ready. 

PS Historical trivia: the tank actually was supposed to have a 2 man crew and was supposed to be airborne, hence small mass and size. We added the third crewmember to make it a useful vehicle for the crew training.

Indeed it is - and is very effective at that job. One of my favorites.

 

Unlike the ‘dedicated passive spotter’ trash you introduced on the British line.

I've wanted this for awhile but always been put off by its poor engine power and the existence of Wheeled Vehicles.

 

Plus I've invested a bit of time and effort into this month's ToTT and will have a T49 soon so might just stick with that.

I own this tiny tank which is not the smallest tank in the game, the smallest tank in the game is the UE 57 (tier II France TD).

 

I played it a few times, but I didn't  manage to test it if it can be hidden under a Type 4 or 5.

So what do you do on Himmelsdorf, Ruinberg, Ensk and Mines or when you encounter a French F1 car? Except getting killed very quickly?

 

Interesting tank but isn't this a little bit too much 'situational'?

Could you do the same for the Manticore please? I mean, if you are changing the historical parameters of vehicles to increase the playability giving the Manticore a three-man crew seems like a small stretch...
