Hey! I just got myself the LT-432 and I want to hear some tips on how to play it. I'm currently trying to figure it out on Frontline but I just can't get myself used to low alpha. I have the same problems with EBR 75, eventhough I have 2 MoE on EBR 105 I can't make the 75 work. These low alpha guns confuse me and I don't know how to use them. I know it's a strong light tank, but how do you play it? Any tips from experienced players will be welcome ^^)

ebr 75 is way better tier for tier than ebr 105, but you are asking about lt-432, low alpha makes dmg dealing a hard work indeed, but lt-432 is great as a scout and with its armour it can bully the crap out of other light tabks, especially the wheeled ones. if you get a map where you cant find any use playing it as a light tank, then simply play it as a medium - similar to china lights, which are better off playing as mediums rather than lights. im not a huge fan of it in randoms either, but in frontlines its one of my favourites for sure, its very similar to  T100lt, which is not great as a dmg dealer, but has absolutely everything else, so make use of your strength - speed and camo. rather than trying to snipe a pixel weakspots from distance.

WV doesnt have VR and you have the same levels of camo as they do, so whats the issue?

heavily armored light tanks are the best WV counters, i think that you probably should play lights at all. So what you are doing with your tracked lights vs wheeled ones? hide behind arty?

Well you load the HE shells and shoot the wheeled vehicles, if they really drive around you.

To all WV haters, please stay on topic! :)

 

Your question made me undust mine and press battle.

You need awareness for opportunistc shoting, map knowlede for the spotting and mostly simply patience.

Try to live as long as possible when LTing.

Enjoy.

Did Outplay two Progetto 46s the other match.

In close quarter

It is a hulldown biest. Yes, the armor of the turret is soso, but with full gun depression the armor gets actually good. Plus the turret is tiny and extremely bouncy.

 

So I keep searching for good hulldown positions do engage the enemy and while searching I scout. Camouflage is very enjoyable in this thing.

But I only have it as of today, because I always wanted it and I could not resist.

Me is ewak.:confused:

I dominate games pretty often with this tank but I can't explain how to play. Because there is not a static play style. This tank is pretty much skill dependent like many scouts. Only passive scouting is not a good idea imo. Do not hesitate toe to toe against same tier lights. Try to play as sneaky aggressive. Peak Aboo is a good choice. I use 6 skilled crew and improved equipments with it and it gives the return. Just yesterday I managed to get a 5k-6k dmg game with it :)

Well I play the game where I have 60% winrate in LT-432 and feel like I contribute to most of my games.

 

And also I shoot HE shells.

The haterate is blinding you!

I get team list for about 30 secondes before the match, enough time to layout a "play safe" plan.

I assume you YT during that time.

I also believe that some players simply deserve what they get!

:P

Samwell? :D

 

PS: got the LT-432 yesterday and played 7 random battles. it's definitely an improvement over the LTTB, didn't play that great but won 6 out of those 7.

however where it truly shines is in frontlines mode. really like it over there and while not being as OP as ebr 75 or the progetto46 in this game mode it's still a great fit.

 

btw, it's a great rammer. hit borasque for close to 700, hit ebr 75 for 500. while taking less than 200 in both cases.

Tracking shot........aaaaand tracking shot............and tracking shot..........aaaaaaand tracking shot.............aaaaaaand tracking shot............aaaaand kill.

 

That is basically how you play low-alpha guns if they have solid DPM, like the LT4342342342342 does.

I think the best way to describe LT-432 is the fact LTTB is already pretty damn good, and LT-432 is just even better.

Hold W key and bounce shots because you're really a medium tank.:trollface:
