Tankers,

 

The Lansen C hits Supertest today!


The Lansen C is a Swedish Medium Tank. And get this: it goes really fast. The power-to-weight ratio is outstanding: 28.4 hp/ton with a top speed of 50km. While the top speed isn't anything to necessarily write home about on its own, the substantial power-to-weight ratio allows it to hit that top speed quickly and maintain it on soft ground. Additionally boasting solid firepower on a 10.5cm cannon with 320 average Alpha. While 320 Alpha is above average for a Tier VIII medium, its accuracy and aiming parameters prevent it from being a reliable sniper.

 

Coupled with the relatively low armor values, this will likely place the Lansen C into a Flex Support category, similar to mid-tiered US Mediums. On paper, I would liken the vehicle to a Tier VIII T20 with better mobility. You need to rely on your mobility and the excellent Gun Depression angle of -10 Degrees.

The vehicle will excel at claiming key map positions early, engaging in some active scouting, then flexing to another flank for support. The Lansen is a 'social' vehicle - it fares better in a pack than it does in one-on-one engagements, so laying down solid, punchy, mid-range supporting fire is the name of the game. As always, stats are subject to change based on testing.

Did the Swedish Leo get its hands on some steroids?  Holy toledo.

The CDC can be seen crying in the corner...

 

 

Also, what's the point of Swedish medium tier 8 premiums when the swedish medium line only goes to tier 7?

These "WWII era" tanks are getting out of hand.

The 'low-armor, high-firepower' meta is much more pleasant than the vice-versa. The best way to solve the premium ammo problem is to never need high penetration in the first place.

According to an old FTR blog post, it's from around 1950.  There are some photos in the post if anyone's interested:

I personally think the Tier 7 Leo is one of the best looking tanks in the game.  Would be a shame to make me grind to it since I already have the Strv and the Primo Victoria...

Holy crud.....the Leo got tired of having sand kicked in its face...105mm gun. Excellent speed, fast acceleration, and good HP pool, along with decent MT armor. Hax20 just said that a few tanks are going to be obsolete thanks to the Lansen.

Presumably because the Swedish mediums will go up to t10 soon.

Whatever. After the raging dumpster fire that Leo is I sold that pos and refuse to go any further down it. Sell it to some other sucker. Swedes just another half baked line with junk grind tanks in it. Not worth the grief or winrate sink.

I know I am bumping an old post, but this surprised me. I found the Swedish line a breath of fresh air and I have enjoyed the T5, T6, T7, T8 all and they are all still in my garage.

The T5 has high alpha and awsome -15 deg gun depression.

The T6 has excellent accuracy and good mobiltyalong with that great gun depression.

The T7 is has the option of hi alpha or high rate of fire and laser accuracy, either gun having close to the same DPM, and  Good speed.

The T8 is a heavy with auto loader that reloads resonably quick, has good depression and good turret armor, and decent mobility.

While not the best tanks in there tier, they are all solid tanks and fun to play.

Does this thing have the hydraulic suspension mechanic or whatever it's called? It doesn't look similar to the high tier meds in the videos but since it's t8 confirmation would be nice.

interestingly enough with the roll-out the Lansen C has weak armor but was able to easily to bounce shots easily from a T44. We'll see what it does when the other 70 mm armored Swedish mediums come out.I imagine it will be a pile os scap so that people will grind to the tier ten and use up those valuable "gifts" Wg has been bestowing upon the peasantry. Wg the nail is bent and the straw is broken . Now  to continue until my premium time is done and I can contribute to peoples lol "  enjoyment " . Hope I don't get Team killed

a lot for my clumsy play still:)

HEY the characteristics of the tank listed above don't match the same tank in the comparison table in game. What is Wg trying to pull? 70/70/40 is the turret armor values in the World of Tanks comparison table. 60/40/25 is the hull armor in their comparison chart. What is correct?
