I'll bet this is the most expensive premium in the game......per pixel you get. Have it, haven't played it very much but this is a  very fun tank.

While it's enjoyable to play and a one trick pony (camo), a purely defensive skill set will do you very little good in an offensive game. At the end of the day in 95% of the cases winning is done by killing the entire enemy team and this tank is *VERY* bad at killing enemy tanks due to it's atrocious DPM and gun handling.

 

Also this tank has such bad mobility it will be stopped by every blade of grass it hits and it's also slow to accelerate.

 

It's enjoyable enough as I said if you get the chance to abuse the camo but if you get challenged by any tank, you die as your RoF simply can't compete.

 

If you get a choice between French light tanks, the AMX 13 57 is the better choice as that one is very capable offensively while also having very workeable camo.

The EVEN90 has great camo but not much else going for it, the size is an argument for some but speaking from experience people will have no trouble hitting you even if you are so small. Only the worst tomatoes will miss you.

It is a fun tank to play - but not sure if I'd shell out money for it these days, as it is really a stealth bush play tank, and more often than not these days some wheeled tosser simply yolo rushes the obvious spotting bushes and proxy spots you (which usually means insta-death thanks to the terrible acceleration).

Meme tank with full passive spotting loadout (CVS, LNES and Optics). Sitting in a bush " too small for a tank to fit in" and giggle when enemy tank drives by your position 53m away and you remain unspotted. Sadly, not many maps you can be that sneaky b*****d, and as Cobra says; gun-wise this tank is atrocious. Reload is crap, alpha is crap, DPM i crap, aim time is crap. Nonetheless, I really love playing this tank mainly due to the camo meme,

its hard to play against it on few maps until certain moment. Mine EBR eats it for breakfast - 2xHE + ramming and its over in 2 seconds.

Once it is spotted it is game over.

Hm very map dependent tank.Only good on large open maps where there is ample possibilities to passive scout.It has insane camouflage  and good view range.But that is all.The gun is super bad because of RoF,poor aiming,long clip reload,bad dmg per shot and poor pen against higher tiers.

So if you get a good map map with lot of bushes,no clown cars and most iportantly a good team where they shoot your spots you can be a super passive spotter but in any other situation you are just fodder and you are not even fast and have bad acceleration so you can't really run.

So my suggestion save your money and do not get this one trick pony as Cobra suggested above.

Save your money when they will sell other tanks(T77,KT © *wink wink).

I think the tank is good.

I am known for my open critics of Wargambling.
 

I could honestly say I despise them for their shortsighted all-destructive greed and lack of reason and pondering to Soviet nostalgia which prevents this game to became fully accepted by all nations to develop its full potential, jet In my stupidity and love for tanks I spent thousands of euros on this game, apparently in vain.


 

But ,that been said, this tank is such an unique  marvel that it keeps me playing this game.

It is so good in its role and so  unique that reason why it is not jet nerfed and sterilised like almost all other tanks  is unexplainable to me , it could be a fault of some Wargaming operator that nobody noticed, just like that in Chernobyl nuclear plant.

Fun tank.

 

You can get it cheap if you get a 'free' tier 8 heavy (black market / bond shop / referral?) and trade in the heavy + ~500 gold during a trade-in event.

its the worst tier 8 lt compared to everything .

Even 1357 at tier 7 better in every stats except the size...

Almost 30 sec reloading - low engine power- only 3 shells in clip ( that mean you cant kill even full hp tier 6 tank) 

Bad gun handling , bad acceleration , if you hit a wooden fench you lose the 50% of your speed .

On other side its good to spotting in some maps, it difficult to hit it ( size of tier 1-2 tank ) , good camo value ( but we have ebcars and you will be spotted ) 

No armor so any tank tier 6+ will kill you with 2-3 he shells when you will try to reload ,,,,

And before you start to think anything i have 990 battles with this tank.

Bad tank, typical of wargaming's incompetence when it comes to balance. Don't waste your money on it.

Time they stopped the de forestation on maps, we need more bushes.
