What I know so far:
Both are tier III.
Both are quite fast though M22 has slightly higher top speed.
M22 has better h.p. to weight ratio.
T15 has much better radio though M22's radio is still sufficient as long as it doesn't go rambo.
M22 has better gun penetration but I'm not looking for a mean killing machine, I'm looking for a sneaky scout.
T-15 has better armor, again I'm not so worried about armor as much as I'm worried about getting hit at all.
T-15 has a slightly larger health pool.
M22 is much smaller, harder to hit and presumably has better camo.
T-15 has slightly better view range.
M22 is easier to train up because of smaller crew number for xp distribution
Things I don't know yet:
Maneuverability? I hear M22 is nimbler due to smaller
Acceleration? Is it safe to assume that the M22 will disappear in a blink of an eye compared to T-15?
Armor sloping? Not that it matters I suppose if I'm relying on not getting hit at all.
Equipment loadout? I'll most probably throw in a camo net and optics and/or binocs... but looking at the M22's very small load limit would there be a problem having more than 1 or 2 equipment?
The only thing that holds me from buying either of these is mainly matchmaking. I don't want to buy a prem scout tank and get stuck in low tier battles. I have the hotchkiss for that and I love it where it is. What I want is a speedy-gonzales-nimble-invisible scout tank to use in mid-high tier battles (but not too high, as I'm pretty sure people will be pissed if I'm taking up a spot that can be used by a fast med or soon to come high tier lights). The only way I'm getting around the MM is to platoon with a high tier tank and that's a bit of a hassle. Still, I think I will end up buying either one of these tanks for the adrenaline rush. So I'm looking for the opinion of those who've played either tanks, especially those who've played both tanks. Bonus points if you like playing the sneaky type scout and not the low-tier brawler or high-tier suicide scout.
