Have it researched for over half a year now, but never bothered to waste my credits on it...

Guess I won't be able to get it cheaper at any other moment though...

Are ANY of them worth it? I mean, are ANY of the Brit LTs 'decent' or 'ok'ish'? ( Notice how I didnt say 'good';).

Well, I have LHMTV ( grinded it for missions for obj 279) - it’s quite balanced and easy to play LT thanks for good mobility, cammo and penetration (that gun from centurion with 226 pen I guess).

Probably, I will research GSOR via blueprints and get Manticore which with new OP equipment for LT becomes invisible:)

So, yes LHMTV - definitely “OKish“, not sure about GDOR, but Manticore I do believe very “OKish”;)

Setter's fine. Nothing special and not very strong, but workable. I do suspect the Manticore might be worth the grind. TRUvoodoo made a video a while back, been interested ever since but never bothered to actually grind it.

Rental? Been a long while since they gave out rentals for the top of the tree.

I really like manticore: accurate gun, no need for vstab or gold ammo. fun vehicle to play (just had 3,7dmg on himmelsdorf) and a great spotter esp with new comms vision system and optics. 

downsides: poor gun depression and 11,3 sec reload.

This is the only tank where the joke "Bottom of the tree" is actually funny.

I forgot this tank like even existed. They are so underpowered that you almost never see them on the battlefield.

You might find out that perhaps it's a nicer tank than you were expecting to get. :)

Yes, if you play vehicles from tier VIII to X in the line you will get the Senlac rental for 10 battles and the possibility to buy it for a few days.

Its a useless thank even if they give it away to you. Not the best camo, slow and inaccurate gun. Also not so good depression. This and the new polish medium CS-63 are the most useless tanks in this game right now.

Why not write that such a mission exists in the article then?

Indeed.

 

This vehicle is agonizingly terrible for all standards. And LTs are quite underpowered as it is.

We thought WG couldn't factor a vehicle worse than the Spz 57 until this vehicle arrived.

 

All LTs require a thorough overhaul to become competitive again. We'll see...
