Since garbad hasn't done it yet, here's my take on the latest CW polls.

I shan't write anything here in the interests of neutrality

I'm really digging the Chi-ha right now.  It's got great pen for a little tier 3 popgun.

Where's that German tier 3 premium with a tier 7 or 8 radio? T15 I think.

I make 400+m one shot kills with my Mark II "Derp of Earl"
The downside is the targets have to be stationary and a slow aim and reload.
With support tanks (Chi-Ha), might be interesting.

As far as arties go, SU-26 is OP, Wespe has the range to cover most of the map.  I'd go with 2 SU-26's for each 1 Wespe.

Echelon probably does not consider that a Tier 3 tank...

That, or a minor error.

M3 Stuart and M37's signal range with top radio : 615

The Skoda T-15 has 710, just saying.

It is impossible to run out of ammo if everything takes 1-2 shots to kill, and 90% of shots hit.

Tier 6, but it's got the range of the FuG 12, which is the Tier 9 German radio that's widely used throughout the latter half of the German tree.

I don't think that's a typo either as I can see nearly everything that's going on in the battle with my T-15 in Tier 3 max (which many tanks' radio are junk anyway, willing or not) battles.

hands down the Luchs... can't tell you how much fun I have had in that tank. In comparison it drives and fights like a tier 3 chaffee :D great maneuverability and a pretty good gun for tier 3.

Well, for light tanks, it has the BEST pen.

What? Only 13 people voted for the Pz S35? That beast eats all other Tier 3 tanks for breakfast including the Chi-ha.

22 shots now.  They nerfed capacity by 4.  Shouldn't be a problem in a tier 3 game.
Edit: Maybe not a problem.  Tier 3's move fast.  Means you will probably be taking more 'leading' shots that miss more often.
