Good speed, good gun that can penetrate ANYTHING at its tier, funny cute looks and small size

What would you need more?

The Tetrarch is simply AWESOME !!!
Whenever I have a bad day in some of my higher tier tanks,I came back to this little baby and it always lightens my mood  :Smile-playing: .

The view range is fairly short which can be annoying in Tier 2-4 battles but apart from that it's a neat little tank.

Its an excellent little tank, it has insane firepower for its tier

Loving the tetrarch too, fought many, many battles scoring 3+ kills with ease in it's tier.

There are a couple of observations though, the spelling of the tank's engine in game is wrong: "Medous MAT"? It's a "Meadows MAT" engine. Strictly speaking it the engine is actually higher rated in game than in reality, which was only 165HP not 180HP but I'm not complaining about that.

There was also a close support variant of the Tetrarch with a 3" howitzer in place of the 2-pdr.

Now what would it take to get the pair of 102mm smoke dischargers working in game???

A Mk VIII Harry Hopkins would make a nice upgrade from the Tetrarch too, which was broadly a similar machine with thicker and better shaped armour, with approx. 100 units produced (although they were never used in service).

Harry Hopkins is listed as tier 3 in the pre-alpha (after the tetrarch) leading to the Alecto at tier 4

In one battle with this, I was fired on by a Pz-35 with an auto cannon. In one burst, he killed my entire crew. I didn't know you could knock a tank out like that

only reason to introduce Tetrarch for free was to spoil the fun for 38h735(f) drivers :(

little aimtime and accuracy on the move buff would be greatly appreciated, but still it's an awesome tank :Smile-izmena:

Better on the move accuracy would be nice or smaller aim time.

But neither is really necessary if you'd ask me. The Tetrarch "Baby Tiger" is a fine tank as it is.

Even the game warns you if you want to do it. :D
It's a good machine. You can feel its power.

Just did 10 kills on himmelsdorf with it.
Then got killed by a stock MS-1
Then we lost.
But still, my heart is still pounding.
