Why have I not played this tank before? This has probably become my new favourite tank. It plays so damn well.

 

That is all. Carry on.

For some reason when they butchered the lights it came out more fun to play than before...

Yeah, I normally don't play lights a lot, but the T71 is the one I best perform in.

It's been my favorite tank since before the Bulldog was out.

I looked into the T71 and found out that I had "unlocked" it when I wasn't looking. A few months ago, I had gone up the U.S. light line through the T37 and Bulldog. After the readjustments to the lights, the T71 was inserted between the Tier VI T37 and the now-Tier VIII bulldog, and voila! I only had to spend some credits for the T71. I waited for the Independence Day sale and bought it for 30% off.

 

It's been great. For a while, I had a 70% WR. It's probably good that they reduced its pen for 9.18. I think now it's about right. Otherwise, people would have cried OP! Despite the nerf, I don't even carry premium rounds.

 

The tank is certainly not OP (see E-25 for a real example of OP), but it's capable and can be a major contributor to a team. By the way, I sold the Bulldog to make a garage space for the T71. How times have changed!

I am loving this tank.  My top 3 favorite tanks right now are 1357, type 71, and the type 64. I'm managing a higher DPG in the type 71 than the other 2.

Shhhhh. Let's keep the T71 between us, or it will be nerfed.

So much this. Shush before WG finds out they left a fun tank you dont have to pay for.

Yeah, it's the only light tank I can run 65% winrate and 4K+ WN8 consistently.  It's OP as F and will absolutely get nerfed soon.  Hopefully, it's the "take away two rounds and lower the clip reload time" type of nerf that will make it even better. :)

It isn't really OP, but it seems tier VII Scouts get favorable MM more often than Tier VI Scouts and definitely more frequently than Tier VIII Scouts.

I just unlocked this tank last night.

 

Should I bother with loading and HE clip?  I normally only carry a few rounds of HE for cap resets and arty.  Seems like the limited amount of ammo, I would be better off loading a few clips of premium and the rest AP.

​Carrying an HE clip for an autoloader is usually a waste of time because you have to go through a full reload cycle before you can use it and if the situation changes you then need another reload cycle to get back to AP.  Further, I find 75mm HE to be borderline useless anyways - while it can deal slightly more damage against soft targets, it is less reliable and against heavy targets it will be absorbed often enough that I wouldn't trust it. With the T71 I see even less need for HE in the situations that you mention since you have several rounds on tap and the mobility to flank targets.

 

I carry all APCR because I think gold ammo costs too many credits and haven't had any problems.

I wouldn't carry HE.

Yes, I have been getting top tier maybe 40% of the time.
