Good day Commanders,

 

It’s about time to witness another newcomer blasting off into the Supertest: let's hear it for the A46, a Tier VI light Brit.

 

With a top speed of 60 km/h and a specific power of 22.2 hp per ton, this vehicle boasts good dynamics. While its maneuverability is up to its mobility: the hull traverse speed of 55 degrees per second can make your head spin.

 

The survivability of the A46 is what you would normally expect of a light tank of this tier. The HP pool amounts to 580 points and the armor is 35 mm thick at best. As for its firepower it’s far from impressive: the 77mm gun deals 105 points of damage with a standard AP round piercing 105 mm of enemy armor. The accuracy is 0.45 (safe to say that our hero is a bit myopic) while the aiming time is 1.9 seconds.

 

To keep it simple, the A46 is a fast light tank best suited for active reconnaissance. It can handle maneuverability-based play. If needed it can retreat with ease—to switch position and lend support in the battle’s critical spot.

I'm browsing from phone and i was scared when i saw image. It looked like another wheelie...
Huh, whatever, it's worse than T21 or T37 so it's balanced, there are stronger tanks people play and they're not broken.

Will this be a premium or reward tank?

I’ve just read tanks encyclopaedia for this tank https://tanks-encyclopedia.com/coldwar-uk-a46-light-tank/

it was going to have the same gun as the comet with work been done to make it an auto loader 

12 degrees of gun depression

and it had more armour 

it’s not clear whether it would be 3 crew or 4  they say it would be crammed with 3 for its role

would it not be better at tier 7 with these improvements than what wg wants to put in game

i like the looks and model but not the stats

The model looks good, not so sure about the stats though.
