It now makes miracle auto-lock shots on other lights oddly consistently. I believe it's related to sacrificing landed aristocracy to the forces of reason.

Yes. Seems like a lot can now. Changed it on my 13-90 and LTTB....not sure if the LTTB could before, but don’t remember.

They can!

Not actually noticing a lick of difference on the 13-90 mind, I had my gunner killed earlier and was still landing all four shots at 250m with the reticule about 3 times larger than the KV-4 I was shooting at :teethhappy:

Seems that shells will land in a circle slightly larger than the target you're shooting at (~1m) and the reticule is meaningless lol.

No, I think only American LTs had the chance to mount stabs. French lights absolutely could not, don't believe LTTB used to either.

Ok. Thanks for the info.  I knew the American line could and French couldn’t. 

 

I just couldn’t remember if the Russian line could or couldn’t.  I Had rammer, optics and vents on my LTTB and wasn’t sure if I was just being cheap in the past by only having vents over vert stabs. Haha.

Chinese at tier 7

US/AMX Chaffee at tier 6

USSR/Germany at tier 8 (so the Ltwt and RU could use one)

Snakebite has vert stabs too. Better than a Cromwell in everyway but penetration.

Artillery punishes flankers, not campers.

 

3500Wn8. 70+ tanks with 3 MoE.

Ah. I bought the ltwt literally the day before the update so wouldn't have noticed.

Wait.....they gave the snakebite vert stabs? I mean I was happy when I saw the Type 64 now had vert stabs but the snakebite....sweet.

How high can we crank this?

Stabs, vents, Snakebite crew, BIA, Smooth Ride, Snapshot... anything else?

​What equipment are you using for the Type 64 now that stabs is an option?

Vstabs are super nice to have available to most lights now!  My 59-16 and Snakebite are very happy about that!  I only recently got the 13-90 but I play it as a passive scout/cleanup tank and don’t need to use Vstabs for now.....though I might switch it up sometime and go full “harass and dash” with it.

​The reason I asked was because I used to run without a rammer because I leaned way more heavily on the formidable scouting potential you had in tier 9 games.  Now that it no longer needs 1/3 of its ammo capacity to deal with 1 top tier heavy, with tier 8 being the max it means I should be focused on the lethality of this little monster.

That's old-school. People have been judging lights for their offensive capabilities forever, so I haven't heard of total-scout builds since the VK Leopard passive build was "popular"

​I'm not very good at it.  But the idea of making my team better with intelligent positioning appealed to me before I discovered that the only machines I can carry games in are the KV5 and vk 30.01P, both for vastly different reasons.

I used to run Binos/optics /camo net so I could swap between active and passive scouting as required. With the Mm changes you're basically a hellcat without the crap turret traverse do you can circle things to death better.

​Thanks, you described my setup perfectly.  Haven't changed it yet because I knew i didn't need all that anymore but couldn't convince myself to maximize dpm on a light tank.  A relic thought from a bygone age.
