I do pretty badly in this compared to my other lights no idea why as its a decent tank.

Ill have to check my crew skills and playing style maybe I can improve something there.

 

Its a decent light tank one good point is shell velocity 1257 with standard APCR and 1433 with Premium APCR.

Both rather good for killing clown cars.

Its let down a little by its camo rating its 14 a little lower than some others same for the other Walker Bulldog style lights

Well, get your wallet ready for the lootboxes then, or stock up on gold in case the black market dude comes back, cuz WG are not drunk enough to put their golden goose up in open affordable sale(or even in some absurd bundle), it will kill the hype they have carefully created around that tank for years.
I personally don't understand why anyone would want it when the T-44-100 is on sale once every few months.

Still, remember the day i bought my favorite boy M41D, i had no money on PP and offer was expiring but i really wanted m41d, so my friend gifted me, since then and 300 battles later my crew are on 6 skills and commander learning 7th. 

It has bond equipment now, 3 gun marks are a long time on the barrel already but now as soon i finish the battle pass level45 i will go for 8 ace tankers, 500 kills and 500 games to get gold decals for it. 

 

This and Hwk30 are my favorite tanks, 2 golden boys that perfectly suit my playstyle. For me, gun handling is everything. 

 

p.s.

look at the beauty

That is one good tank you have there! What would you recommend the new owners, how should they play? :)

Glad that you ask.

 

This tank is about DPM and gun handling, accuracy is very good so here is what i like to do.

AT the start don't rush like usual light with good camo since camo is weak, if there is more then one light, as usual do, then use the gun handling and snipe for a start, you can make 350 dmg in 3 seconds since you have good penetration and amazing shell velocity speed. 

 

Then as the battle progress seek for the weak links in their defence, flank and do damage, this tank is made for that. i think that right now i have 3000 dpm, even if you are lacking whole battle you can still get some late battle damage and rack up the score. 

 

It's not for everybody tho, you need to know what are you doing, if you have the skill and like good gun handling guns this is it. 

 

Avoid wheeled cars and brawl with them since HE will hurt, i like to think that the enemy will make only as much i give to them.

 

p.s.

I had battles where i take good position and snipe EBR105 so easy that triggers the guy and rush on my spot to seek for revenge and die :D 

When fighting wheeles use the gun capability and view range and own them before they get close. 

 

I do not say m41d is op but i love it, it is made for my needs. If you decided to pick one good luck. 

 

edit:

now when some people read they will think: but you only camp and snipe and that's it, i have to add that on 300 games i have around 1.200 average assistance per battle. You can spot, but spot wisely.

Subtract the 30d premium bloat and it actually could have been a nice offer.

Seems WG still won't touch the area which one is "chinese" and which one is "taiwanese", but, it's fine :hiding:

I am willing to spend £100 for type 59

 

Simple, T-44-100 meets tier 10s, type 59 does not.

We're doing metaphors now ? You neutered the Bulldog by taking away its autoloader, because it was supposedly way too OP, and then forgetting all about your poor old dog while pushing out fast autoloaders at high speed recently.
