It Was a good tank until french wheelies. Now is as useful as a spoon without handle.

O'K, lets analyse a bit. ;)

Let's say, You are playing with Manticore (or ELC EVEN 90, or LHMTV, or GSOR) on the Redshire from the lower base.

The questions is that: would You go to show to Your teammates tanks of opponents' snipers on "the hill" and their spotter in "the standard bush on centre" in the very beginning if:

1. There is some wheeled ones in opponents' team;

2. There is no wheeled in opponents' team?

If You give the same answer in both cases, the problem is not wheeled, nor MM, nor anything else, but Your habits only, and that that You do not want to change Your "standard" moves in the beginning of a battle after seeing teams "ears".

 

p. s. Yep, it's difficult to play with other LTs against wheeled sometimes, but it's possible.

p. p. s. How have You done such decision, if You do not have Type 62?

I roll with the standard vert, rammer and optics. It's an alright tank but it fires potatoes with its sub 800 velocity.

I was waiting for this tank during last (or the one before? :amazed:) advent calendar but it never came. I could buy a tier 8 light (LT-432) meanwhile and as I play light tank(s) only at low tier grinding and for missions, I decided not to buy Type 62 when it was on sale during the year. WG was too late with the offer for me, there is the LT-432 which is better as a moneymaker and it's OP, plus there are the french wheelies and those made the gameplay worse for tracked lights. I think this tank (and most of the light tanks) became obsolete and pointless.

Ventilation, optics, rammer and standard consumables, but it worth to try to put "meal" instead of fire extinguisher and to use big med- and rem-kits.

What you think, guys, will you buy this tank if you already have Type 64 for Chinese light tank crew trainer, tier 7 AMX 13 57, tier 8 lights like M41 90, LT 432, T92, ELC EVEN and an EBR wheelie, you already researched AMX 13 105 (just waiting for some discounts to buy it) AND you are not focused ot researching Chinese light tank any soon?

Great tank, but what a badly chosen mission.

 

WG - I'd have thought that a daily advent calendar mission should be open to everyone. However, most people don't manage 3k until they've at least reached tier 8. Getting them to do it 3 times in the same day is eve worse. On the other hand, if a player only has low tier tanks, at least they only miss out on one small box.

Yeah, you are right. But I will keep ELC EVEN for now. I don't need credits or slots. NVM, thanks dude!
