Power to weight is good in case of the lansen... Stated is that the dpm is good.. only problem is it's accuracy.... Unable to snap shot.. no armor... So you need to play mid range.. but can't hit a barn... The other tank is pure trash as long there are wheeled cockroaches driving around with laser point acc guns and critical hit magnet activated...

FV1066 Senlac - is it worth it to buy?

I got the Lansen on the black market, i really like the alpha/DPM balance it has, a great strength for a medium tank, it is also mobile and rather small, the gun handling is derpy however and the shell velocity average so sniping is not effective, that is the balancing factor i guess.
Also just like on the M4 Rev, the shell price is good for the alpha it has at 580 creds per 320dmg(unlike the 680creds per 230dmg BS the brit 20pdr guns get).

no, i bought it when it first came out, the tank is totally outclassed by the other tier 8 light tanks.

it has bad alpha, is as big as a house, so bad cammo rating, is slow and turns like a boat.

i traded it in first chance i got.

Oh, i love the Senlac, the only downside of the tank is its size so it has less camo factor than all the rest of tier 8 premium lights...

 

BUT

check out the gun 

Big BUT has 90 pens HE with 280 alfa on every 4 seconds you pop out 300dmg shots that reliable pen all the lights beside the lt432 and pen sides and even fronts of some medium tanks, most of the side and rear of the heavy tanks as well.

 

My personal strategy when the battle starts, load HE and rush to brawl with enemy lights after i eat them use good positions with the awesome view range, this tank can out spot with no big issue what so ever, use it cleverly with the ammunition you need to know when you can switch from AP to HE and back. 

 

In hands of good player will work.

Tech tree UDES 14 5 is better than Lansen C imo. I got both, and my stats show a definite UDES advantage. Lansen is not bad by any means, just that in this instance the tech tree tank of similar tier works better.

I enjoy both actually. Lansen with a good crew is a very capable tank, but you play it like a light (small profile, excellent mobility and somewhat derpy gun). If you can adapt to it's play style it is a fun tank to play and make credits.

 

The Senlac is one of my favourite tanks. It is excellent for frontline,  but can be a bit situational in randoms. However it has an excellent gun, HE rouns works a treat on lights and a great way to deal with wheelie bins due to its high shell velocity (even with HE). It is also very effective against lightly armored campers like arty, Skorpions and SU-130PMs. Keep in mind, it does need a good crew and a bit of skill/practice to get this tank to work, but once you picked up its playstyle you will not regret it. And no, it isn't as good as a [OP] LT-432, but to me the LT-432 isn't as much fun to play as the Senlac.

Have them both already and the SU130 also on offer,

Love the Lansen and the SU130 both good tanks and the Senlac is probably the best British Light in the game. :)

 

completed the ride to valhalla event a couple of days ago and currently have a 15% and a 20% coupon to claim and use.

sadly nothing to buy everything available I either own or decided long ago was not for me.

Yesterday you gave me a 30% discount coupon, thank you btw again nothing I can buy.

 

New tank or gold that's about all I could use them for and even then a new tank will be bundled and part of an offer so.no use to me and I cannot buy gold due to the coupon limitations.

Same as the last 3 coupons I got, I don't get a discount and sadly you don't get a sale.

I could buy another years premium same as last year but already have 340 days left

Got a 15% discount coupon valid on absolutely anything (nice change from the useless coupons) but as there is nothing truly on discount in the store at the moment (only artificially inflated prices/bundles), this will go to waste as well.
