Did anyone have the M41 Bulldog when it had the 10 round autoloader? I miss that one so much. The only reason I made this post is because me and someone were talking and we both would pay money for that version as a premium tank or back as an upgrade on the TT one. Would anyone else pay for the autoloader on the M41 Bulldog back?

Play WS if you want it. Pretty sure that is the only way you'll ever get to play it


The tank was stupid because of it.

"But it took 15secs to unload"

Yet could do 1500 when done.

"Long reload" doesn't balance it.

Will WG ever have WoT offline like they promised?

There are a bunch of old light tanks that I'd buy as premiums in a heartbeat, like the VK 28.01 with its Derp gun, the ELC AMX, and of course the 10 shell autoloader M41. WG could stand to sell a ton of premiums for not much effort if those tanks were added back as premiums.

The AMX 50 100 has a gun that deals 1800 damage with better pen and a shorter unload time, so there's no reason the autoloading Bulldog couldn't return.

It’s reload was like 32 secs or something and I’d gladly take 6 shots like the lycan


Lights tanks need rebalanced(again)

​Update 4.2 and 4.6 were terrible

I didn't care for the autoloader. Always preferred using the last gun so I could easily switch rounds as needed.

It was fun to play with..... not so much the other way round.  It also meant you’d find yourself with a Scout who would periodically spend 60 or so seconds mostly hiding so he could be fully loaded for his next yolorush.  Again, it was a fun tank to play...... but it’s better this way.

Maybe if you ask really nice they’ll put an auto loader in the Chinese Bulldog when that comes along so it’s not just a Chinese M90 or BrazilDog..... maybe a 5 round clip? 38 second reload? That’s about 1250 magazine potential for a 250 Alpha 90mm, if I’m in the right ballpark.

I’m also gonna say no to it being a premium. The VK 28.01 derp, M5 Stuart derp, Bulldog autoloader, T37 autoloader, 59-16 autoloader, WZ-131 100mm should all still be options for the TT. 

 

13 75 & 13 90 should have options for 6 shooters too.

I three marked it with the single shot but I also miss the autoloader. The new single shot stats are really trash tbh.

MOEs so I can pretend like they matter

The reload was over 30s and the gun handling was terribad. 

 

I used the autoloader for like 2 games, then 3 marked it with the single shot.

Reason why been saying for years it should be 4 rounds but yet people would rather have that burst damage of 1800 and "bad" stats to go with it instead of the other way around. Why is that?

Yet again could do 1500 damage in 15 secs. shouldn't be a reason for it to have it and yes i played it when it did too and it was a dumb gun to have. after a while i went to the SS gun as it felt more better to me instead of how it was before. the tank now needs some love but that is what happen when everyone kept whining saying they want tier 10 lights.

I loved it. I miss it, for sure. However, I do think it sets a bad precedence to have great TT tanks, take them away and then offer them back as a premium that requires real money. In theory, yes I would want it and would buy it. But if they did offer it as a premium, then I would want an answer as to why it needed to be removed from the TT M41 in the first place.

Gun handling was bad. The only way to make it work was to do a drive by then high tail it out if there

I think when they changed the tank it changed it for all of them, existing or new.  Was my favorite tank.

I hate the current version.  The gun can't dump quick enough without getting hit with that terrible reverse speed.  If it had a 4 shot clip that dumped in a couple seconds with good aim time, maybe I'd like it better.  I liked the larger clip on the 13 90 because it gave me some extra shots spotting behind a bush with my binocs.  But a heavy that's got to be closer to the action needs better gun stats.

I bought it and played maybe 5 games in it over the first month I had it, then they nerfed it *thumbs down*

This tank was one of the reasons I stopped playing. Nothing like being shreded alive in the tiger every time I ran into one. The other was the three round auto loader spc 1. The old KV1s with the 122 is up there as well. It was a dark time to be in a german heavy. The konish on the VK36 was no match for the brutality of the 122.

Never like the autoloader version of the 90mm gun I much preferred the single shot version.
