Hello tankers!

 

With the release of the Brazilian Bulldog, we want to hear your stories to share with us and the rest of the community!

 

To get us started, here are some of my Battles. I don't normally play light tanks because I'm quite bad at them but the Bulldog is just soo easy to play! I'm really liking this tank and I've already earned my Ace Mastery Badge! Wooohoo! :medal:

Done.

We didn't have to win right? Just knock Max's crown off.

Because I did only manage to win 1 of 4 games played in the tank thus far.

Nothing like having a friendly IS-3 try to troll you, only to find out that while the tank has a shoddy engine, it's not hard to outmanhoover an IS-3.

Well that would require me to play a game, and I ain't doing such a thing at this time o' night.

As I see it, you wont really be making much bonus XP, VIII Premiums ain't about that, and it may also not be making incredible amounts of Silver either due to the fact you may have to load up the Grenn Frey song at some point, and that Cola is quite worth using on it.

 

But in the Defeat, I fired a good amount of HEAT into the turret side of an AFK T30, and in the other game I fired only one shot into the side of a Tortoise's upper casement.

Think it's around 300 a piece for the HEP/HE, and 4,000 for the HEAT.

It's not that bad of a tank, although it's still not the best either.

But if you want a quite poor tank to play that doesn't really have much going for it, wait for the T95E2 to reappear.

 

If a Bulldoge can flank, it can hurt, hell I penned a T-54 in his side, and likely would have got a good deal of damage with his engine on fire had the game not almost immediately ended by cap.

 

Although I have been lucky thus far to only get Tier IX games, and thus yet to face Tier X's, if you can play it sorta like a flanker who takes opportunistic darts at occupied enemies, you can hurt them quite well, and there's something fun about being able to drift at the side of an Awful Panther, end him and instantly set a 13 90 on fire for trying to rush at you, because Lights have yet to fire out that it fires HE and that they have no armour to block that.

I never said it was bad, the thread looks really staged though. I'd pick one up if I had the maaahnies.

Nah man, Max is just trying to look good, and the Bulldoge is the only tank he can do that in. :trollface:

Definitely was a problem.

Especially because the reload is like, 6.19 or something, whereas mine is at 4.98, relatively quick reload which leads me to believe that the crew is like 50 or 75% in the target practice mode.

 

Frankly I just have a single Yank crew who goes in any Yank tank I get.

My best game out of my first 20 is attached below.  It's nothing great, but it was an Ace badge.

 

My impressions of the tank are that it is mediocre.  The single big negative is the ammo.  Reliable damage requires premium ammo, which destroys your silver earnings.  The HEP rounds are completely unreliable except against thin skinned targets.  Both HEP and HEAT seem to get eaten by tracks a lot.  If it had at least one reliable round it would be a much better tank.  Personally, if it had the same ammo choices as the RU 251 it would be a dependable light with much more consistent performance and earnings.  As a crew trainer it is unremarkable.  I get more XP and Silver in my other tier 8 premiums.  Now, the picture:

Looking at all the pictures I can quickly calculate an average of 160-170ish damage per penetration.  That right there shows the unreliability of the HEP round, and it's actually lower than that because a lot of those penetrations were HEAT.  The numbers speak for themselves.

well i didn't take a screenshot but my best game was 3.000 +- 70 Damage with only 2 heat fired earning 117k silver. in that game i... failed to pen the front hull of a wz-132 twice, penned the side of a tiger 2 at 400+ meters twice, jumped over the top of a vk45.02A while putting a penning HEP round into a capping Ferdi (this was muravanka encounter) swivel the turret and put a penning HEP round into the rear of the 45.02a for a 298 damage kill. and then kill a wz-131 with the 76 autoloader in 2 pens and one from my platoon mate's 13 90, and then i put a penning Hep shot into the side of an afk tiger before arty derped him for the rest. and then i fired my 2 heat at an at-15 400 meters behind me....

 

we started in the forest, our lone tier 9 heavy got 1 shot by a m40/43 (arty balanced) at that point my platoon mate and i were chased across the map by a amx 50 120, the tiger 2 i penned twice as he murdered our poor su-152 that couldn't run. and the wz-132. at this point we are down to 6 tanks vs 10 enemies and they are capping, i say, screw this lets yolo the cap, and it goes from there...

Too bad Max. I had to kill you on Cliffs in my T71. 

Still like the AMX 13 90 better though.
