The Type 62 might be one of the oldest Chinese light tanks, but its bite hurts like it did on the first day.

€ 40 for a tier 7 light tank... Would be an instant buy for me against a normal tier 7 premium tank's price. But € 40?

 

Thanks to WG's WalletProtectionByInsaneInflationtm  i saved € 40 today. It almost looks like they don't want my money.

Yes Saxsan, we're all aware that you are the biggest whale in the history of WoT. Even for this extreme overpriced tank with a goodie bag.

+1 :)

 

If someone had recently gone up the Chinese LT line and enjoyed the WZ-132 on the way, then this tank would allow them to play a very similar vehicle without the need for retraining the crew. I've had it for a while and enjoyed it a lot. It's quite unique on the battlefield.

I have it. It can have some good battles, as tier 7 is a nice spot for light tanks. But with the wheelies and LT-432s in the game, it's somewhat out of META. Like Chinese lights in general. They can have their moments, and I like to play them, but sometimes I have the feeling that they are pointless mainly due to the clown cars.

Won it many years ago at a time when you could win a tank for free if you played enough regular games

Pricing is odd usually there are 3 offers standard, Ultimate and Supreme this time its just the two £34 for the tank nope.

If you want to really sell this tank and it is a good tier 7 premium, instead of gold why not bundle it with the AMX 13-57 which is only £12-48 about the same price.

Now that would sell. :)

Do NOT BUY it.

I repeat, do NOT BUY it under any circumstances.

Please listen me on this topic: I played it for a logn time and now replayed it the last 20 days !

This tank is...BADDD beleive me: outspotted constanly, VERRYY sluggish, with mediums deployng faster and, most iportantly OUT OF META.

Completely out of meta. 

It's hard to explain , but in fact is powerless and uselles tank, IN SPITE of all the theoretical characteristics.

If you dont beleive me go on Skill4LTU page and see that this tank is rated as a : BAD TANK.

 

I hope I could really help my fellow tankers.

No base tank package.

Only available in crap bundles with gold etc.

 

So Wargaming, the answer is a resounding NO THANKS.

Not a light tank lover here, but i got it, its fun, but would not recommend it unless you want to "complete" your Chinese collection. Its slow for a light tank, the cammo its not great for a light tank, i rather play it like a spotting medium tank and support. As mentioned the shell velocity is just a joke for a light tank.

WG really cannot win can they.

All premiums are either OP and should not be sold or rubbish and should not be bought :)

 

Its an old Premium and as such is pretty much a Stock WZ131

Its got better DPM a little better aim time and 20 better View range than the WZ131
