Bought it two weeks ago . I have a LT432 and the EBR 75 as well so I can say that The life span of this tank is not very high due to a very low armour protection , a not so good camo rating . The top speed is nice but the acceleration is not . Anything can pen you or ram you . The gun alpha is great but the ammo speed is so low that it is very hard to hit anything at distance , it is nearly the feeling of a DERP gun .

 

I tried the M41D and had masterclass after few battles and even it has less view range and smaller alpha damage , the shell velocity is so much better that it compensate the smaller gun . it is also more precise gun .

 

The HE doesn't pen much apart from the PROGETTO 46 which is then a real joy to hammer 

 

Another issue I have is since I bought it , I'm always bottom tier in every battle so fighting against tier X is very very hard indeed .

 

I would recommend first the LT-432 as it has everything you want from it and then the M41D for the fun /view range and the look !

Still waitin for BIA crews for 300 GOLD,....missed them last year

It would be nice to have the likes of the Tiger 131 and Cromwell up again to get those crews for 300 gold, but they are not giving crews on duplicate tanks this year when you buy for gold, sadly. Last year you could do it once, which was a nice Xmas surprise and bonus. Sadly, this year, no. :(

You can buy the 6500 gold, and get it bundle free.

.... By the way, Light tanks are DEAD since WG has put these stupid Ferrari from France. They have destroyed the meaning of light tank. Why go light when you can go super light. Shame on WG, really shame.

 

They have "changed" the meaning (and the gameplay) of the most of the light tanks in the patch 0.9.18.... You should remember it...

All the three "big" changes of that patch:

1. Implementing tier 10 light tanks and letting light tanks to be "in the top" and to feel "as the same combat unit" as all other medium and heavy tanks;

2. Changes of SPGs (stun and etc.);

3. Changing of MM to "templated" one with too little amount of top tier tanks in 2 and 3 tiers' battles;

have shifted gameplay to more "speedy' one. Everyone of these changes has "a little bit" influence, but all of them together... :(

The implementing of wheeled was simply the last drop, as the "new" branches with super-duper-high alpha heavies and re-de-loaders too.

Try to remember, how many "High calibers" and "Snipers" You had got before 0.9.18 with light tanks.... and see, what's going on nowadays:

http://wotreplays.eu/site/5121597#tundra-iknewit-gsor3301_avr_fs

http://wotreplays.eu/site/4920483#serene_coast-iknewit-amx_13_105

http://wotreplays.eu/site/5070792#el_halluf-iknewit-gsr_3301_setter

http://wotreplays.eu/site/5120325#westfield-iknewit-amx_13_105

 

And now it seems that developers are trying somehow to undo all that "speed-up" (that they were made in the game in the last two and a half Years) with these changes which are being tested in the Sandbox.

I hope they will succeed...

Yeah? Have to say I'm tempted to buy it for gold. Was hoping for the Progetto but that won't come as it's in the loot boxes, and I do fancy a half decent light to tackle the campaign missions in and it would be a great crew trainer for my Luchs/Leopard

I played yesterday on Fisherman's bay with LT-432 and the enemy team had two wheelies, a tier 9 and a tier 8. The whole battle was an agony for me. Just stick to meds and heavies instead, you have some fun factor with those.

yea, you should thank wg for the introduction of the worst class of tanks in wot, after arty

Already have the tank, but haven't played it much in the last 9 months to be honest (or much WoT in general, actually...) - liked it before, though.

The daily mission rewards are really quite nice today, however :medal:

I gotta say despite the fact I have an EBR 75 and played it a lot on Frontlines, which was a lot of fun spamming people with HE etc and running away with my magical shell absorbing/deflecting wheels etc. I gotta say if one thing has detracted from this game above all else it is the wheeled lights since I started playing in 2017.  They often create mayhem and chaos in games and lead to quick victories or defeats etc. They also rendered many of the other lights in the game obsolete in many ways.

The main reason I took a 9 month break from the game, actually - completely ruined Frontlines for me this year & that had been my absolute favourite mode last time.

Thank you for specifying this. The words "French Ferrari" triggered my spaghet.

WG, why don't you give an extra 30 days free premium when people buy a tank? Make it a bit sweeter not always bitter. By the way, Light tanks are DEAD since WG has put these stupid Ferrari from France. They have destroyed the meaning of light tank. Why go light when you can go super light. Shame on WG, really shame.

 

We do offer the tank together with other items in the Premium Shop bundle. We also believe that there's still a space for both regular light tanks and wheeled vehicles in the game, as they have different play-styles. The game, with its meta, is periodically readjusted and re-balanced, so what doesn't work in favor of a specific play-style or tank class today may vary tomorrow, don't just give up on an entire class of tanks because of the wheeled vehicles. You can still have fun with traditional LTs and this one is pretty valid. :)

Well, the leKpz M 41 can also dab on the Progetto this way, as it does fire HE. :trollface:

When you check the gold offer for a tank that you already own, what you get when you buy it is a discounted garage slot at less than 300 gold - 287 today, if you own the leKpz M 41 already. :)

Yeah, almost like they know how OP russian tanks are so they don't want to sell them for gold. So every advent calendar we get a bunch of German underpowered tanks... And we should act like we don't notice that...

I would actually put wheeled tanks in the number one place of nuisances in the game, well before arties. I have been playing this game for over 7 years now, but I consider the wheeled abominations the greatest design fail Wargaming has ever produced. By a mile.

Yes, but they should balance tanks, or balance nations offered, NOT sell every other nation except russian, that is just not ok, shows how broken the game is, and how aware WG is of that!
