How good has the new autocannon been for you with firing on the move? It seems like in the replay and from my personal experience driving it you have to drive it more like an amx 13x where you sit, shoot, and gtfo. I've never had much luck hitting/penning anything on the move, especially when you only have 15 rounds in the magazine. Or is it because of my 50% crew? :3

PS. Also seeing as apparently they made it so the MM fucks the T2 light (when was this?), might it be better just to drive a M2 light for roughly the same shits and giggles experience of oneshotting any t1 tank?

u mention is has good maneuverability and acceleration. In my opinion/personal experience the lack of hp makes it lose a lot of speed when turning and when on rough ground. That makes it very tough on you when you try running from those nasty bt's, no? Or have I just been dumb?

By hp you mean horsepower right? Because the T2 light has like the 4th or 5th best P/W ratio in the game...

Your speed bleeding because of the narrow tracks and/or not 100% crew.

I used to love this tank but I sold it recently, I felt so sorry when I sold it but I simply couldn't play it anymore....

I got this tank with the retail version of WoT that I recently purchased and I am very happy with it.

Unlike OP I decided to install a spall liner and ram other tanks. I've killed a few tanks from the ramming itself and many more from the ram&spam tactic that I've employed.

Ram&spam: Basically bury yourself into the rear of the targeted tank and spam everything you have at them. It works, sometimes  :Smile_great:

Crew isn't 100% yet but when I do get there I'm going for the controlled impact skill for the driver.

It's called a light tank for a reason.  I leave all my lulz ramming to my other light tanks. That T-54 never saw my T-50-2 banzai charge coming!

Still, most other tanks at your tier are also lacking in the weight department as well, so it is a viable strategy, but only at your tier, which is my concern. The spall liner is heavy and when you are in tier 4 games the only thing that keeps you alive is your speed and size.

Just something to think about.

Does anyone know why this tank gets Tier 4 matchmaking? It can't hurt tier 3's and 4's, and it can't be a scout either with abysmal view and radio range. Did the dev's just decide they hate it and don't want it to be played any longer?

It is extremely fast and mobile. Also when compared with the other tier 2 light tanks the view isn't that far off.

I am going to update the OP tomorrow I think, to reflect changes I may feel need to be made. Maybe.

Unfortunately, you don't mention the fact that your "blinding speed" bleeds off a lot on soft ground... which usually leads to a sad T2 lt...  :Smile_confused:

Still, you've given me more than a few reasons to start playing mine again +1 to you, sir! :Smile_Default:

Agreed. This tank can reach crazy speeds on a flat plane... physics totally ruined its bleed rate though.
