Bush mechanics are your friends, be sure to use them as effectively as possible.  Teach your crews camo, put on camo, throw on a camo net, use binoculars when and wherever possible.  Other than that, you are at the mercy of this game and your teams.

For using bushes, if the bush is transparent then you're gaining a camo bonus from it. If the bush is well bushy, then you can fire through it without getting spotted (hopefully). I'd recommend the STRV line if you're planning on sniping in your tds as they offer great dpm, accuracy and camo.

It is an AT you ain't hiding nothing.

It comes down to hiding as much of your tank around corners as you can especially the commander's hatch, avoid turning corners that expose your track first before your gun. I don't have experience in the larger AT series.

In general, I would say fast TD's with either a turret (T67, Hellcat, Challenger, Charioteer) or with a wide gun arc (Archer, E-25, etc.) are great ways to learn how to snipe. While those kind of TD's are a lot more vulnerable, having that mobility allows you to find better angles to snipe from, and allows you to react to how the battle is developing. They also let you learn bush mechanics more easily, since if your current spot isn't working, you can just move to another one.

 

That being said, if you really like the more armored TD's, then the British TD line that you're going up is fine - The problem is, they're mean to be brawlers, not snipers.

Hide commanders cupola and bully others. Do not get flanked. Boulders and buildings are your friends

If you get bored, here's an e-25 match from last night. 

 

 

The ATs can be fun.  Try to protect your cupola (commander's hatch) from being hit.  Wobble your tank a little in between shots if your being shot at.  You can play those aggressively in city maps too.  Make sure your crew gets repairs.

The British AT series tanks are not the tanks to "learn TDs/sniping" with....

 

They are not traditional tank destroyers.... they are armored pillboxes on tracks.... meant to be played up front or at least near the front. In addition, when you moved up to the AT7 you will now see Tier 9 tanks, so unless you have the top gun you will have difficulty damaging them.... and they will simply load gold rounds and destroy you.... if arty doesn't get you first.

 

In my opinion, the British AT tanks can be extremely frustrating to play in Random battles.... as few teams will make any attempt to capitalize on the tanks' strengths, mainly its ability to advance under fire (giving your teammates a shield or chance to move) or its ability to hold a chock-point.

 

If you want to learn "TD stuff"... namely using camo and spotting mechanics to your advantage.... you need to drop down a few tiers and pick a different TD line.... such as the American turreted TD line (the M8a1 is a good start), the German line (starting with the Marder 38T) or the Russian TD line (the SU-76m is a good start).
