SP I C is actually quite decent, mostly because you can abuse your 390 m view range, camo and punchy gun. Tbh, all tier 7 LTs with 390 m VR are really good if you know what you are doing.

One thing to remember - it's not a brawler. Gun works like a potato launcher so until you get good with it and get used to shell velocity, you should fire only at stationary targets.

 

I didn't like it but I had good results in it. View range coupled with light tank camo and good alpha made it playable for me. You hit harder than all LTs and most meds - use it to your advantage.

Sadly, this doesn't work for HWK 12. You get great view range but everything else is improved only by a little while competition (a lot of battles with tier 9 LTs) is much stronger. Potato gun kinda works in tier 7 tank but on tier 8 is just awful and 240 alpha is nothing special.

I finished SP I C with 64% WR and more damage per battle than HWK 12 - I sold it right after I was done with it, barely managing 51% WR. I didn't even get Ace Tanker in it. I'm probably going to re-buy SP I C because it's very easy to get an Ace in it so it will be great for personal missions.

They just should give the meckar autoloader gun back. It was the only german autoloader and they just trashed is. It had a very unique playstyle back in the day, but now it is just a generic bad light.

You can use blueprints to skip playing tanks that you don't like.

one most fun to play light tanks in a game, even after it lost its 3loader gun... yes its absolutely bad at spoting, but if you know how to play hit'n'run style you'll be surprised :honoring: same goes to hwk12 , but its bit weaker

Because they needed to introduce ELC even 90 which is pretty much what SP1C was, but premium. Go figure... Instead of introducing HWK they should have just uptiered SP1C in order to retain its (historically accurate, btw) autoloading gun. I thoroughly enjoyed SP1C with autoloader and haven't played it since the change, and refuse to buy ELC.

The SP1C used to be a very nice and niche light tank when it had it's 3 shot autoloader.

 

Then WG rebalanced the light tanks and *somehow* got the wrong impression that the SP1C with this autoloader would be overpowered (which it would not and is not), and removed it.

 

This instantly made this LT rather useless. I used to love the SP1C and played it quite a bit, then they "rebalanced" it. Played a couple of matches, saw how it was ruined and sold it. Such a shame.

I'm sorry but the EVEN90 is worse then the SP1C was with the autoloader tier for tier, mainly because the SP1C had viable penetration for the tier *AND* pretty competitive DPM.

I loved the SP1C with the autoloader and the EVEN90 is not the same, at all.

Ask your clan mates, some probably think WG buffed it ;)

 

SP 1 C is pretty ok, I've had good fun 3 marking it. Unfortunately the abysmal shell velocity makes it suffer most from wheelies. 

It's best to shoot while stationary and at stationary targets. 

The camo is pretty decent and it can work ridge lines, what more can you expect from a tech tree LT.

The RU 251 will at least be a lot better.

Be thankful you're not playing the British Lights. :trollface:
