So listen up. I got a tough one here.

I have 1 Russian crew with about 12-13 skills/perks. I like light tanks and mediums and I want to buy back an old tank I'd enjoy.

Should I get the T-54 LTWT or the T-62A?

I have a 140 already and love to play it here and there. Would it make sense to have essentially the same tank in the garage?

The T-54 LTWT was the 1st tier VIII light I had and I was really bad in it but feel now I'd be a hell of alot better in it and it's cheaper to get back..... and epuipment is cheaper. (I don't have a prem account)

So help me out and sway my decision.

Since you already have the 140, I would go for the lightweight.

^This. The 140 is already a much better tank than the T62A while the T54 LW leads to the best and most fun tier X light tank.

I've already had the T-100 and sold it. I know I'm crazy, blah , blah but I like the old lights, even more now that the ones that moved up a tier got little buffs.

I'm kinda reminiscing and want the LTWT back. I also just got the RU back last weekend, which is still a great little tank.

Anyway I may just go ahead and get LTWT due to fun factor and a little silver savings.

Still listening to some controversial posts though.

In that case I can't help, as I've always despised the T54 LW and never liked the T62A either. From the sounds of it you will probably enjoy the light weight more though.

i prefer the 62a over the 140 ... the lightweight is a good tank and it's a tier 9 so that's different already. I'd go for that.

Even after all this time I honestly can't see why anyone prefers the T62A to the 140. I mean, the Object 140 just does so much better and is only really worse when it comes to it having a weak point on its turret.

I sold the T-100 LT pretty quickly too.  It was almost too maneuverable lol.  Very twitchy.  Driving over bridges was one of the riskiest maneuvers I'd try during a game!  I really liked the T-54 LTWT though.

Because everyone that shoots at me seems to hit that weak spot. :(

This. I got the t62 first eons ago, then the 140. I still have a crew in the 140 (even though I don’t play it too often), but play the 54 light quite a bit.

If you have the HEAT-54 then you already have the best of both worlds.

 

Maybe that tank you were looking for....was inside you the whole time.:hiding:

You are exaggerating. 140 is not much better. There isnt really a noticable difference in mobility and firepower between those two tanks except one degree better gun depression on the side of the 140 and a slightly better turret on the side of the t62A.

140 is the better tank imo but the difference is tiny

I went ahead and got the LTWT back. Now I just have to get that crew to 100%.... and play it sober. ;)

 

I'm just looking around at old tanks I used to have and wanting a few back. If they would give me the old bulldog with the autoloader, I'd be all over it.

 

I've also started playing arty, is this wrong of me?

I'm not really exaggerating (after all, there's enough of a difference between the two that I really dislike one and enjoy the other). The 140's speed is 5kph faster (which isn't that much but makes the difference between being fairly slow for a medium and having a decent speed for a medium), its gun depression coupled with its lower profile allows it to actually aim down at the lower plate of most tanks when in close quarters fighting while also making it that tiny bit better on ridgelines, and the Object 140's hull armor is about 30-40mm more effective when not angling (which allows it to bounce a ton of shells from lower tier tanks where the T62A is penned through the hull very easily).

I guess the game does really get to everyone at some point. :confused:

T62A lost a lot of its glory when its turret gets penned constantly by gold. Its lack of gun depression and module damage keeps me from playing it. I would stick with the 140 and grab the light.

That's what I thought too. I unlocked the t62a to be able to go from one to the other when I die with 140, as I usually do with P.Victoria and Atomic. I did not really understand why but I was wrong, if I try to play the t62a as I do with the 140 I'll be the first player on the team to go back to the garage, it's as simple as that .

I use Google translator for english language

Lots of juggling in french text, sometimes translator in trouble with that. If you do not understand what I write, tell me.
