Hey all,

I'm currently grinding the Personal Missions for the STUG and the Excalibur. Noticed that I have a few missions that will require me to be a little stealthy.

I realize that my crew can help camo a tank considerably (my Pz38 has a camo rating of 717, better than some of my tds), but what is the best TD for camo rating, and what is the best Light tank for camo.

I'm thinking the E-25 might be the best TD out there, and maybe the M-41 for lights.

I'm no where near Tier X at this moment so I'm looking at between Tiers 5-8, as well as the premiums.

Any suggestions?

E25, STRV/UDES, Kanonen 105 are all very stealthy TD's, UDES 03 being the sneakiest of those, and the E25 being a close second {Though the Kanonen and Strv s1 are no slouches.} The E25 has the best camo while firing however, due to its hilariously anemic gun.

Pz 38 is a tier 3 (unless you mean the Pz 38 NA). Tanks below tier 4 don't count for the first campaign, and they need to be at least tier 6 for the second campaign. Even 90 has the best pure camo, but there are better choices like the LT 432 is you want camo that is still pretty good, while the tank is far more combat capable (Even 90 is trash if you actually want to kill stuff). E-25 is certainly one of the stealthier TDs and has good combat capacity too. You could always just use the in game comparison tool (bottom right in garage) to put the various tanks and TDs into a side by side comparison and see the camo ratings for yourself.

 Sorry, but I was just making a point that crews can improve camo. Thats how my Tier 3 Pz38 has a better camo than my current tds.

As for using the comparison feature, I completely forgot about that! Only problem I can think of is whether or not, it will allow a comparison of vehicles not listed in the tech tree.

But thanks for that suggestion!,

Not sure about that myself. If not, you could hop onto the Tank Wiki to look up any of those less common tanks.

E-25 for sure and basically anything on the french light (the non-wheeled ones) are good, but passive scouting has been dead ever since they brought the EBR into the game, so anything above tier 7 is going to be harder as far as lights go.

I believe the IKV 72 has the best concealment in the game. Not sure about the Brit lights but the EVEN 90 is likely the best light.

For tech tree on sneaky td, try the su-100 at tier six.  With a camo net you can get the camo up to 60% while not moving.  Couple that with the 122mm and it's a sneaky death machine at tier six.  Perfect for quite a few of the td missions.

 

Also click on the rating (the bar for concealment) to see real values, it helps more then some abstract number.

The stug side missions has that stupid 250 spot damage without being spotted which should seriously be changed now.

 

Tier 5 ELC is doable if you have good team, but you have to not fire(slap on binocs, camo net and training all camo crew first. Premium tanks would be valentine 2 or Type 62. Anything higher got killed by wheelies which is idiotic and made the mission almost impossible at high tier.

even90 with camo directive is like a Klingon cloaking device.

Didn't Dezgamez have a YouTube video a couple months back where he tricked out the best camo and tank in the game? Can't recall what it was but I dont think it was e25. E25 might still win though for practical purposes because it has the old pre nerf camo when firing.

my E25 is 68.8/24.15% for a 1141 camo rating with standard equipment and natural cover directive used. I bet I could get over 70% with the improved equipment but I don't have enough bonds lol

LT doesn't have to be much special.  I finished all the STuG IV missions with honors on Asia Server using the Type 62 and a crew with camo and some view range to get them up to 450m.  NA I got almost all of them finished with honors, other than the cap or decap mission, using the LT-432. 

 

If you have a decent Chinese crew, or can get crew books to get one, I'd say your best bet right now is the Type 64 at T6 in the premium shop.  It's a decent LT and shouldn't have too many issues with wheeled vehicles which have ruined scouting in higher tiers, as they can get to scouting locations before you can.  The other option is the LT-432 in the store right now, though the price to me is too high, if you have a decent Russian crew, or again crew books to get one. The Valentine II is too slow. 

 

Also check out 4 Tankers and a Dog, Lemming Rush, Dauntless Tanker, Taugrim, etc on YouTube for scouting locations.  I'm not the best LT player, but they helped me start to get an idea.

UDES 03 has the best concealment in the game. Even if IKV did, it wouldn't matter for OP because its not above tier 4.

it's not the "best" but the Jp.Pz IV is quite stealthy as well. Camo net + camo skin will give you 42.77/10.69 (stationary) and 18.25\4.56 (moving). Add Concealment and BIA and you'r looking at 63.01\15.75 and 30.38\7.6. Comparing that to a e25 and it's pretty close.

 

Jg.Pz.IV

63.00/15.75

30.38/7.6

E25

66.56/23.36

32.47/11.4

 

hope this helps, good luck.

M56 scorpion is underrated. It's got insane camo and unlike the e-25, it's actually got great standard and premium pen.

...it trades PMM and armor for that gun, though.  A loud fart pens it.
