Current Chaffee's 2nd turret is a Walker Bulldog turret.

NO it is (NOT). the m41 walker bulldog is larger then the chaffe by some 15-20%, and its turret looks like a mini m47 patton turret. here is a pic


http://www.battletan...1_Bulldog-1.jpg



the 2nd turret on the chaffee is an experimental POS that wasn't fielded, and failed trials. it was never used on an m41 in combat. let alone a chaffee..


and just for shits n giggles heres an m47 patton,  see the resemblance?

http://www66.tok2.co.../m47/m47-01.jpg

the m47 patton turret is basically the same 2nd turret on the m46 Patton we have ingame.


any way. i think the m41 WBD would be a grate t6 light for the us and would LOVE it have it in game. ied even pay 5k gold for it if i had to.

ied like a m551 Sheridan for the t7 us but thats just me =P.

And neither was the AMX 13 turret and gun tested by the French in Indochina.

Which means that if Tier X mediums are introduced, the M48 Patton should be used as the American X, considering the similarities between the M46 and M47.

There's bound to be a resemblance between the M41 and the M46 because they both spawned from the T42 medium tank project.

The M41's turret is quite a bit smaller and lighter then the M46's turret.

Great lookin tank. Performed great in real life. They had a high velocity 76, so I'd expect a high fire rate with a slight increase in damage and pen... Like 130-150 damage, 160-170 pen. I say make it tier 7 and make that experimental tank that the chaffee's turret (t37) comes from the tier 6. With a decent sized hull, that turret doesn't look so dopey. The chaffee is agile enough as it is so if you up it's tiers just make the new tanks have more hp and an improved gun. Not much to balance in order to make them effective at higher tiers. The only thing holding the chaffee back is too weak a gun and not enough hp to contend with top tier tanks (9-10)... Plus the m41 is just so dog-gone sexy

Na, Keep it tier 6 with gun damage being around 130-140 and pen being around 140-150. It is after all a rifled 76mm main gun.

If you would make it tier 7 give it the experimental rifled 90mm gun that they tested.

Didn't know that gun existed. There's another thread where a guy said put the m41 as tier 6 and m41a3 as tier 7. They pulled that with the amx 13's so it might be a viable option if they don't use the experimental bridge between the m24 and m41. If they put a 90mm on it, I'd honestly want less damage and faster fire rate. Like 200 damage while still shooting around 10 per minute or something in that range. Low damage-high rate of fire is what defines how you kill stuff in a chaffe. I wouldn't wanna lose that.

Well if we keep along tier 6 tanks in game then I would say something like 150dmg and 145pen for the 76mm gun with a 18-18.5rnds a min.

With the 90mm if it gets it something like 170 pen and 210 damage with a ROF of 8.5-9rnds a min.

I remember in a "You ask, We Reply" I asked if they would add the Walker Bulldog.

They said something along the lines of "No". Though I am still hopeful they will add it.

They also said they'd never add tier 10 med's or td's for quite a lot time but that changed. I think if enough people ask for it, they'll eventually comply. It'd be nice to have more options for high tier lights besides the french.

Aw man, i was just about to make a discussion about this. The m41 bulldog should be added to the game, it is a variant of the patton obviously, it has the patton turret.  When my broa and i looked at it, we thought it was a chaffee with a patton turret because the chasis looks like the chaffee's.  So yea it should come after the chaffeee, but it should get a really good gun, since it is practically the m46s gun or very close to it.  I will try to load pics i took of it

watch the asap thing they put up today! "will you add higher tier light tanks?" was asked. They said obviously the french get up to tier 8, and yes, they're looking into it. The biggest challenge so far has been finding suitable vehicles for the other nations, mostly the USSR... American's are easy to figure out as we've posted a billion options there. If they take them up to tier 8, which it sounds like is what they want to do, you could do something like t37 (ugly chaffee turrets original tank), M41, M41a3 or something to that extent. I'm turning off accelerated crew training to save up like 80k exp for the day that these get added. I don't buy hardly any gold so I do grinds the old fashion way

I watched a video interview yesterday. It was entirely in Russian so I've no idea what they were saying, but at one point they switched to historical footage and images of the PT-76, which would be a logical Soviet counterpart for the Bulldog - 1953 vintage light tank with a 76mm gun.
