Looks terrible statistically, even for a tier 6 LT (which usually are terrible).

 

That being said, I wonder if it's a premium (more likely though why would anyone want it when Type 64 exists, which no surprise outclasses this at everything?) or if they scrapped the idea of uptiering Crusader & friends and instead use this as a tier 6 standard LT connecting Crusader and Setter.

It looks like a tractor. But more importantly, does it perform like a tractor?:hiding:

Probably the new T6 tank for the "reworked" tech tree. Since all the lines will start from T6 right? So probably it's going to take Cromwell's place.

Wow that is just new levels of terrible.

 

  • Worst pen of all tier 6 lights
  • Second worst alpha of all tier 6 lights, by the far the worst on a 75mm of higher gun
  • Worst premium pen
  • Second worst hp/ton behind the Type 64, that goes 12 kph faster
  • Worst accuracy
  • Nothing particularly special in terms of view range, or DPM or any of the other statistics.
  • Doesn't look very small so unlikely to have great camo.

 

What a pointless tank, even if it's tech tree, it's truly truly awful.

"So probably it's going to take Cromwell's place"  Cromwell is medium that plays like a very good light.

there are a lot of wheeled British tanks...  they should have released some of them...

 

Cromwell is a loved medium..  I can't see them removing a tank that is so popular, that would be stupid right?  :hiding:

It's a British light tank, it has to keep the trend of the techtree branch. :trollface:

Jokes aside, I read the article on TAP and the listed camo is 8.6/2.1 (stationary/moving and when firing), I really hope it's a typo or some other mistake because otherwise... :harp:

First I thought I was looking at a wheelie and thought that 370m view range was really really good. At least it looks cool.

Looks like a tier 3 with the firepower of a tier 4.

Right, found some history on it.

Thought the A45 was the last project under the A designation, but apparently not.

Garbage.

 

For zero reason it has worse accuracy than heavy tanks...

 

Heck, the Chaffee had sub 100mm of pen but it could at least hit stuff and reload under 3s with crew skills + equip.

 

I mind as well just throw the towel and play TDs like everyone else. There's absolutely nothing in store for LT fans. Now it's ALL for the sake of dumb Heavy Tank drivers.

What I meant is, the current British LT line starts fron Cromwell, and in the super test re-worked tech tree, lines start separating from T6, and Cromwell is a MT, so it won't start with it, but probably this tank would be the T6 of "Manticore"'s line in future. I hope you got my point. :)
