That's a great crew trainer to train your crews for the fun tanks,

T49 and Sheridan with the derp guns!

 

Oh wait...

Meh I quite liked the T92 LT.

 

But then I discovered decent LTs lol. Nice power to weight ratio but poor top speed and the price of the gold ammo probably makes them the worst in the entire game. Atleast the Death Star gold rounds actually give value on a decent hit.

Fun little light tank with one hidden advantage: The standard shell functions pretty much like HEAT ammo insofar that it loses only something like 2(!!!) mm penetration over 500m range, which I think is unique(?)

 

This is offset by the fact that when WG moved this tank from Tier 7 to Tier 8, they forgot to lower the premium shell cost to a competitive level. So the premium ammo is ridiculously expensive (since it's T7 premium ammo pricing) on tier 8.

Agreed. 175mm of pen for a whopping 150dmg is already meh, but go up to 210 pen with your premium rounds and pay 5600 credits for the same alpha is disgusting. And I know the T71 DA carries the same HEAT ammo, but the standard pen at that tier is workable, whereas 175 pen at T8 isnt. PMM tanks had their pen buffed from 175 to 186 and they only face T9s...

 

Apart from that its a decent LT with great gun handling.

You mean you don't enjoy firing gold that costs more than a basic repair kit at the enemy?

 

I laugh as every time I fire 4 in a game, it costs more than the price of food.

To be fair; most premium ammo at that tier will cost more than a basic consumable. But the alpha to credit cost ratio is out of whack on this tank.

You have more forum posts than battles. 
This is something mostly seen on WG employees :)

Step 1- Get Blackdog/EBR/HWK 30/Senlac/Lynx
Step 2- Load your "Quality memes" ammo.
Step 3- Charge at the T92 and laugh as its driver s**ts his pants.
Step 4- Pump T92 full with "Quality memes" ammo.
Step 5- Drive away and leave the T92 driver to regret his purchase.

But seriously, the T92 is not that bad tank itself, it is just the environment of superior LT that makes it obsolete.

At least the T92 can bully an Even 90 if you're full HP. Even 90 can't run or clip you out...

Yep! you totally want a tank that gets dry a*al rape by LT432, BlackDogs, HWKs and EBRs.

LT-432 frontal armour hilarious. Especially in an autoaim duel with another LT as the lower tiers and even same tier tanks will bounce off the front. Why something that fast is that flat and has that much armour. Feels bias...

Russian LTs have this unique feature that they have pretty decent armor for LTs. 

Usually it`s not enough to bounce shots of TDs and higher tiers - but against other LTs it can be pretty effective. 
On the other hand, I can`t recall any tank that catches fire as easily as LT. Its fuel tank is big, weak and very easy to hit. It is also the only tank I`ve ever played to catch fire twice in the same battle - and this happened more than once.

I guess there is a reason they give this one away for free in the recruitment program. :justwait:

Yeah, they give it for free because it's too slow for light tank, too expensive to play with even small amount of gold ammo, too weak against lt432, blackdog and EBR, too low dpm for so low alpha damage, and bad HE which can't do anything to even least armored cars. The only good thing is gun handling and interesting APCR ammo.

But you know, according to the WG staff LT-432 gets set on fire easier so thats means it "balances" out other differences. :trollface:
