first of all I run the normal gun, because it is consistent. I have a 3 (or 4?) skill crew, which I train in my 4 low-tiers premiums (you can bash me for playing them, I love pain).

 

and is it really worth to drive this thing, when I have the EBR 105?

Yes , because you can't fit a 152mm on the EBR.

The Sheridan ( Do not have).. plays the same as the 60kph high cammo,Mobile artillery piece with the 152 called the T49 ....but with better gun/cammo values...

 

That is why you play this tank .

 

 

You are a 152 assault howitzer with amazing V/R prowling the battlefield using suprise as a weapon blapping the enemy for 950 a time....

 

 

If you choose the small gun good luck with that.

 

 

PS This was with a 2 skill crew when the T49 was a tier 8....just play it the same..

Not at all, the derp allows you to quite happily mess up all the heavy armoured tanks that other lights can't touch.

Plus, if you get the sides of many tanks it's murder time. I'm grinding the american LTs just for the derpguns. Slamming an FV4005 or a T110E3 for 1k alpha in a LT never gets old!

I need not big guns, inconsistent guns to be good.

See, he knows. And I agree. However it's pretty usable on T49. But on the Sheridan? Think not. The DPM that you get from the derp is heavily inconsistent,and if you get tier 12 (i.e. only tier 10 tank battles), you are, in my opinion, at a heavy disadvantage. I was considering the derp gun, however, the high base viewrange and inconsistent DPM of it made me ignore it. 

Sure, there were a few moments when some Sheridan potatos went in my face and derped me, but unfortunate for them, over 70% of these battles ended up winning in my favor. 152mm just does not grant that consistency and competivity of the 105mm. The effect of slamming heavy tanks, armored mediums and armored TDs for 200-300 alpha pays off less than aiming a few shots of APCR or HEAT at their weakspots, at a consistent rate of fire. I do not think the gun choice here is a matter of personal preference, but a matter of lowering the general chance of win for the team, and being less effective overall. I'd rather try using other words from my vocabulary, but consistency is the most potent one of them.

Sheridan does better at pocket medium, than at shotgunning, there's no denying it.

I do not believe in luck mate. I believe in my skill. That miraculous thing so many people (if one can even call them that) lack so much. I have no problems with my aim, and I would probably be more effective overall.

Light tanks shoot at opportunity, not at will. That is why you have 14 other players who (more-or-less) might help. The only LT that has actual problems with penetration is the T-100. I cannot really count EBR 105, because it can easily exploit sides and rear armor very often. All LTs (except T-100) have decent penetration, if and when it comes to flanking, or you could always double-tap ''2''.

There are LTs that can pocket medium and those that are more suited for scouting. Sheridan can generally be a JoAT, but that becomes null & void if you use the derp. But I guess it just comes from bad experience, when bad players get deceived by large numbers, when it comes to alpha.

No offense, but that supposedly explains your performance in the T37. Should've not brought that up, at all.

You can touch any tank in the game with any of the tier 10 lights if you have an IQ higher than your shoe size though. Derp is reliant purely on RNG. Sometimes you will do 300 or 400, sometimes 50. If you want to be competitive then you need to somewhat accurately be able to tell how much you will do. Which you cant with a derp.  Plus high tier derps are just bad for the game anyway

I bought it and played only in ranked battles. It was an ineffective low hp, sluggish light tank that gets wrecked by anything that auto aims it and anything that even misses close to it with a HE splash. A trash and I sold it soon after. "but it can do this and that" ya well just do the same with a decent medium tank and you'll also have about the same mobility only a gun with much better pen values, decent levels of camo, about as much view range and of course you will also most likely have a bit of armor to work with and a larger hp pool to play with... certainly unlikely you will have an insta-pen overmatch armor or at the very least you will have armor that might get penned but not by HE unlike Sheri which gets clapped by everything and players know it too, it's not like it's a secret, as soon a Sheri gets spotted players will chuck whatever they have loaded in their guns and the next shot will be a HE. Did I mention selling it?

I recommend using the 105mm gun. Play it as a fast medium tank, that can provide spots also. Depends on the map ofcourse. On Sand River you can get assistance damage, on maps like Ensk you are the flanker / support fire. Don't play it as a sniper.

 

Edit: It's big, doesn't have the best camo and isn't thát fast, so be careful if you drive next to the lake on Lakeville, you can get spotted. The dpm+gun handling+gun depression+traverse speeds make the gun nice and comfy on short and medium distances, especially against not so well-armored tanks. Lower plate of IS-7 on 300 meters is usually not an easy shot. E75 on such ranges as well. On short ranges you can play much more with those heavies by detracking them, circling, aim for weak spots, etc.

No it isn't worth driving if you have EBR 105. 

It is one of the worst T10 lights in game.

 

So main reason to play it is to meme around with HE gun I guess.

I will 3-mark the T49 with Derp :)

 

And 1-shooting EBRs  (with help of fire) is nice.

While I'm still learning how LTs works, fresh crews and stock module are far more a problem IMO. In T37 I started a fresh crew, not at 100% yet and no sixth sense and other skills...

It's not a shame to start with fresh crew, i started all my tanks with 75% crews.

And thus I'm not so good at lights, but i find that the T49 is a great tank with drep at tier 9-10.

It can over match other lights armor and one shot some other. Also the camo rating is decent on American tanks if I'm not making a mistake.

I may grind them as well. :)

The Chaffee is fun. Took a while to get the hang as it's more a fast MT than a spotter. Gun handling on the second gun is awesome. Got some nice snapshots across the map. 

 

T37 is less impressive. Had some good game where I managed to sneak trough the enemy lines with other fast tanks that were epic, but mainly you can't really influence battles as the Chaffee could, because your alpha is lower, tier for tier, compared to Chaffee. 

 

The rest of the line looks unimpressive too untill T49. 75mm guns stop to be useful at tier 6, unless you have an autoloader and can actually dish out some high damage.

T49 derp at least allows for damaging heavily armoured tanks. Heck, fighting an hulldown E3 you're better of in a T49 than in a SConqueror!

Infernal, just go with the french and the 13 105... Dat gun is what dreams are made of. In all honesty I only got 103 battles in mine, but I have loved almost everyone of those.

The answer is no, mount the 152mm gun.

 

With the standard gun, there are many light tanks that do a better job then you so it's a waste.

 

The 152mm makes you an actual damage dealer to heavy armor (a far more rewarding business) and you can also spot on top of that.

But then again, if you are going that route you might as well stick to the T49.
