Fun little light tank to be honest.

 

Cobra 6

 

Decent speed and view range, gun accuracy and HESH.

The only thing I find inappropriate is the excessively high reload for its caliber. Otherwise, yes. Indeed it's a good light tank. Reminiscent of Pre 9.17/18 LTs

Did buy this one last time it was on sale (during Frontlines) to use as german LT crew trainer to crank up the crew before buying the RU251. Bad choice. Baaaaaaaaaaad choice.

 

It just gets insta-rekd and raped by all the EBRs and if no EBRs - the LT-432s run circles around it and just obliterate it DPM-wise. The Hwk30 feels just as useful as the "fun" British LTs...

Think I got mine from a loot box I doubt I would have bought it as I already had the M41-90 which is similar.

Like the Black Dog this tank has 3 very useful ammo types the Dog has AP HEAT and HEP which is basically an American version of HESH.

The HWK 30 has APCR premium APCR and HEP I carry all three as 102 pen HEP rounds are pretty useful

Going by stats it seems like a decent tank, it's just too bad that as long as the wheeled clown cars are in the game, I don't see much point in playing any LT of any tier...

I'm sure you're safe playing LT's on tier 1-4....

I guess the Gendron-Somua owners need some people to style on too, from time to time, but again, not really interested. Also, there's the issue of those low tiers being practically useless for an older player like me that is also trying to do personal missions for the reward tanks (currently have the StuG IV and T28 HTC), and those require tier VI or above....
