Give it more ammo and the larger alpha we were promised and I'd grind to it

why always autoloaders?

 

also u should know that you can't expect much from vehicles that never were built (and are not premium)

  I agree with you on the Tier IX and Tier X, those need a buff, probably a fairly large one. But I didn't think the Tier VII was as bad as everyone else did. Don't get me wrong, it's not a good tank, just not as bad as it's made out to be. Also, it's Tier VII, it doesn't need to be very strong simply because of where it is on the tech tree. The Tier VIII, the LHMTV, I believe is actually a very good tank and doesn't need anything apart from maybe buffing the DPM a little. But I understand why they made it so low on the LHMTV, it has a heavy tank gun (albeit a British one) on a light tank platform, so yeah, probably don't want 3,000 DPM on that, but they could give it another shot per minute and it would help a little and in no way make it OP in my opinion.

I think the DPM on all the British lights could go up by 20% and it wouldn't unbalance them.

All that I want is for it to have a third crew member even if it ends up happen to be a garden gnome for a gunner as needing a 7 perk commander to be viable is ridiculous.

I'm in for Leopard 1 420 alpha damage and HE pen to make Manticore scary to those french autoloaders. I'm mean the AMX 105 does the same damage already and has 3 round clips and faster RoF(based on stats) which makes it 1 clip kill scariness. I can't see why they can't make Manticore a stealthy, high alpha LT to scare other players off with its lower RoF.

The stats are out now.

They are actually good.

They require a brain to play and a willingness to consider that face smashing isn’t the only way to win this game.

 

As a side note “British Lights are Fun!”

Even as a big British tank proponent I am a little skeptical, Guido. Where are the numbers?

They are starting to show up in all the various stats sites.  Here's the link to noobmeter.  Click on tank stats here.

 

As of now, still no indication they are the worst tanks ever as all the hyper-ventilators keep saying.

Exactly..im good enough to make manicure work but the gun handling elevation/depression is all kind of annoying. It's like it was made to scout cities.

plus the gun handling is crapyou can't even hit an enemy scout from 50m when moving

I'm enjoying the lhm currently it's a fun tank just wish it had more shells so I could take some risky shots without being punished so bad for missing
