Can you guys give me some general advice with LTG and maybe equipment suggestions?

 

Is this tank viable to be passive scouter?

(I learned the hard way that active scouting is a quick way to get sent to garage in my MT25)

I actually played it as a sneaky medium

 

its a bit slow as a pure scout but does have great camo, so a bit like a sneaky T-34/85 was my style, armour can be surprisingly bouncy

 

I also ran optics, vstabs and vents to max view range, crew skills as it cannot really out dpm anything anyway

its not a passive scout, you either go with standard setup - vstab, rammer, optics or go with one of other viable lt setups - rammer, vents, optics. Vstab, vents, optics. Its up to you really which setup to use. None of them is bad, it depends what do you need more. If you cant make ltg work, stop now, t100 is the same pretty much.

Azakow I will gladly read the link in a minute.

To all of you I say this.
I dont particularly enjoy LT play. Not my style of gameplay. I do it for same reason I play arty...missions.

I do reasonably well in MT25 (got my 2nd MOE yesterday with out trying).

The idea of active scout it dead to me due to ERB abominations.

I dotn plan on traveling up to LT100 I can assure you of this.

I only want to get to that sweetspot of max tier +2MM because. I cant do the t55a lt missions anymore reliably in my tier 6 lt.
I cant do 3000dmg with a 95dmg gun.

I cant cause 3000dmg in spotting in such a low HP pool.

:)

LTG so far I see has great camo and bad view range.

Active scout has been dead long before EBRs. 9.17/18 are to be blamed for.

I need a higher tier light tank for my missions. Because I cant reasonably finish the new T55a missions with tier 6 tank. :D

Higher tiers = more HP targets + more dmg per shot. (instead of 400hp tank being shot by 40hp shell :D )

Tier 8 should be a sweetpot for missions, lttb is epic vehicle, i mean it has everything.

not really

 

active scouting died with 1.0 maps, the level, quantity, thickness of bushes killed it

True true,

But isn LTTB worse when it comes to passive scouting than LTG?

Yes it does have better view range but it has worse camo and its freakishly tall. Isn't it?

Higher tier LT = higher requirements at your keyboard.

In case you can't, then you might be not be read for T-55.

Simple!

I will say it one more time, dont play ru lights with binos, especially lttb.

Your reply has nothing to do with the comment you chose to quote.

What does my skill have to do with higher HP and dmg pool?

Do you really expect anyone to do 5 tank spotting kills and 3000dmg? In a Tier 6 LT? 

Missions got progressively harder and bigger in numbers. 3000dmg is basically 4 full Tier 6 tanks. 3000dmg with a 125dmg gun?

When a mission ask you to spot and enable your teammates to kill 3 tanks. In tier 6 thats nearly impossible. Because: guns are less accurate, low dmg (so tank has more time to run), less skilled or observing players who cant notice that I spotted and am pining an enemy for them to shoot.

I dont like playing lights. Especially now when the EBR are in the game.

LTG is not fast (its quick when it gets going). But any active scouting in todays meta ends up as a trip to the garage in less than a minute (especially when bottom Tier).

 

I understand that russian LT may be more suited to active scouting role. But there is a difference between suited and whats the current battlefield meta.

 

Im no expert on LT. But every guide I read told me to passive scout in LTG. But as always open to more suggestions.

I understood your comment as "I need more than pew pew gun for missions". Other guns come with higher tier LT. Higher tier LT come with higher requirements at your keyboard.

It is really simple. Either you can or you cannot.

Maybe you should read the campain requirements once again, because I could not fin anything say "cause 3k dmg" in T-55 LT missions, what is says is "enable your allies to ..." - a very different thing.

The LT-15 mission is dmg + assisted, which is of cause extremly hard on LT6/7

So the conclusion is, you shall get better at LTing in order to complete the T-55 LT missions.

It is a good light tank, small and agile with a decent gun.
These are your 3 benefits which you have to find ways to exploit.

It also have badish viewrange, not that fast in a straight line, low hp and no armour. These are the negative aspects you have to work around.

Also true.

 

Maybe 9.17/18 was the coffin and 1.0, the nails.
