Interesting! If priced right, it could hit the game like type 59 did... With 20 000 of these you could make an impact in matchmaking and lower the ingame average tier a little bit...

Let's see:

Based on Type 59 (whic is based on T-54A)
MUCH thinner armor
Tier 6
85mm gun


It's perfect!  :)


And I don't think that It would make impact in game balance (in average numbers).

Gun seems to be exellent for the tier. Same penetration as 107mm gun, fires 12 shots instead of 7 shots and does 200dmg instead of 300dmg. 12*200=2400 and 7*300=2100. So quite a bit more hitting power than KV-3. (Type59 has DPM of about 2000)
Ok, gun is supposed to be equal to standard 85mm gun. Those are maximum values then.

Armor seems bad, but good angling might bounce quite often anyway. And 50km/h top speed seems to be adequate for the tier when comparing to other mediums.

Interesting tank for sure, If it is quick to accelerate and handles lightly, might even be worth buying. It has tier7 engine, and those seem to have around 500-600hp ingame (exeption, french light: 300hp). Wikipedia says it should have 430hp and weight of 21t. Most likely it is agile. And with that gun, I'm sure it can make good credits too.

(They should really make other light/medium tanks as a premium too, not sure why all fun to drive premiums have to be chinese... Tetrarch is fun though, but does nothing useful except buffing kill count.)

I am looking forward how Wargaming will "balance" this tank in the Matchmaker. Maybe it will just get a MM-Bonus like the Type 59 got untill 0.7.1

According to the stats it seems to be a chinese french tank  ;)

This is the whole point, unless Wargaming have learned from their Type 59 fiasco (not a fiasco for the Type drivers but for everyone else in tier 5-6) this little monster will appear in large numbers, be grouped together, and potentially own low tier games. What matchmaking adjustment will be made?

All these things, if handled in the same was as the type 59 will have a serious impact and ruin the fun in tier 4-6.

So far the premium tanks which have been added in game, Lowe and Type 59, have received very poor response from players who don't own one and implemented quite poorly; leading to an adjustment in price for the Lowe and the removal from sale of the Type (yes it was turned into a marketing opportunity for the company but, if it hadn't unbalanced things, they probably wouldn't have bothered).

Keep tanking

hmm check the armor values of the hull again.. it has 25mm frontal armor in approx same angle as t59 has. (1/4 of the t59 armor!) i doubt it will be hard with a short 88 or a 76mm to penetrate. I might bounce all below 100mm penetration, but nothing above.

With similar module layout as 59 (ammorack on tracks)  and very thin armor this thing will die quickly - if you hit it. I guess everyone capable hunting down french and new T5 lights should have no problems to eat t62's for breakfast.

While the stats shown seem to fit the Tier VI, the tank model itself does not. While I have nothing against premium tanks and Chinese tanks either, I believe that a tank from the early 60s would seem a bit out of place riding along VKs and T1Hs.

Up until now the tier progression has lead the player through the years of armored warfare to a degree of precision. But the implementation of post-war tanks in a tier populated by tanks from the 1939s seems a bit out of place.


Furthermore the gun and armor stats are not what we are looking for in a light tank now is it? How about giving us the view range for that lovely little thing. Since the speed is only 50km/h, this light tank will probably follow the French tank idea where the Scout title is given to dedicated tier 5 scouts, while these light tanks fit the role of glass cannons and quick flankers.

Light metal alloy wheels ofcourse. To add some bling bling to your Gold tank!

Ah right. Not really much sense in getting that for a premium tank then. Going to stay with my anticipated module setup in that case. :)

Those values on the Chinese page are for maximum penetration and damage. 200 and 163mm are the exact same ones as given to the 85mm UBR-365K shell ingame, which should mean it will get the same penetration and damage as the best gun using that shell, which in turn is LB-2S from SU-85B with 130mm pen and 160 avg. damage.
