Hello Everybody;

 

I have created a bunch of YouTube videos to display my favorite maneuver in a light tank, which is used when you approach somebody frontally, usually a TD or arty.  At the last second you reverse your direction of motion, and unexpectedly go to the other side -- totally hair-raising, and totally fun.  Check out these "reverses."  I am searching through my 30,000 replays for more examples, which takes a while.  Enjoy.  It's always great when the enemy shot misses by a whisker, especially an rhm (#5), or an SU-152 (#1).  Of all these, my fave is #2, an AC 48.

 

Regards;

FernisBoppis

Just watch their gun barrel and as soon as it lines up with you, slam on the handbrake and mash down on A or D.

I've always called it The Zaggy Potato. Make them think you're gonna zig, then WHAM, ya zag right before they fire! Great maneuver for any tank class. In the slower tanks I call it The Wiggly Potato since the goal becomes to bounce their impending shot rather than dodge it!

T95 finds your movements funny. Seriously though, to many see me in front of them (in my T95 in particular) and immediately slam the brakes and try to run. People seem to forget that one of the greatest strengths of a light tank is it's speed.

If I don’t have a turret and a light tank gets behind me, I just assume I’m already dead. Even with a turret, this is why I use auto-aim. My brain is not nearly fast enough to keep up with good driving, but the computer is.

I've done an awesome one of these before, I was in my wz1201ft and a enemy low hp bulldog was tailgating we at around 50kmh. I slammed on that handbrake and sent the little pest back to the garage.
