Title says it all, looking to get rid of this APCR/HESH magnet for a LT. I have some experience running a HWK 12 when working toward the Leopard 1 line so I know what to expect from a tracked light booshcamper, opportunistic pot shot, mildly snipey boi. 

So far the only two I can pick from are the T92 American light and the ELC EVEN 90, currently I'm leaning toward the T92 due to it's squat profile but I figured I'd ask for some expertise before taking the plunge. Which one is better for what purpose/qualities? Should I wait instead for a chance at something else being added to the trade-in feature?

Well the EVEN is a good choice, with good crew perks and equipment is almost invisible, and it's a pew pew pew, with a horrible reload :sceptic:

Only you can decide what tank you'd like best.  Below is the information you need to come to that conclusion. All tanks have their strengths and weaknesses.  One is not better than another.  The biggest differences from tank to tank are the Commander of that tank.

 

Here is a link to Tanks.gg comparing many popular tier VIII light scouting tanks.  Keyword scouting -

Here is the World of Tanks Wiki page for light scouting tanks with a description of all tier VIII light scouting tanks -

Below are some videos on light scouting tanks and how they should be played.

The clown cars have made lights pretty useless in randoms. The Even 90 works really well in FL with the big maps.

I'd go for the ELC, is more unique. And very fun once you understand how to play it.

The Even 90 is my preference over the T92 but both are quite capable scouts. The best tier 8 light is probably the LT-432.

Yeah part of me wants to wait and see if the LT-432 will make its way to the trade-in but I'm doubtful. 

On another note, looks like the general consensus is the EVEN, thanks fellas. :)
