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

 

It never had the 90mm.

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.

 

dont' forget the original Chaffee.

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?

 

Yes, but I always preferred the single shot.

I was going to mention the OG Chaffee, but honestly WG have basically added it back (but better) with the addition of the Rover.

I was going to say, I remember plenty of people preferring the single shot to the 10-rnd autoloader anyways. I personally didn't think the old auto-loader was that OP. It had plenty of disadvantages that seemed to offset it. But it is what it is. It would have been interesting to see how it would've been with the new lights structure, with the old gun.

O RLY!  I didn't know that.  Maybe a new purchase is in my future....

In case you didn't know, it's effectively a better T37 and plays like the old Bobblehead Chaffee (except that it can do 70kph easily under its own power). Given, it doesn't have the snapshotting ability of the old Chaffee and some of its stats are worse in a direct comparision (like it having a slightly worse ROF, worse pen, 10m less view range, etc.), but that doesn't matter much since it's a standard MM tier VI instead of a tier V light that only saw tier VII-X games.

The uni's used to use them in tier 10 egames, perhaps 3-4 in a 7 aside game.

 

The original slaughter loader.

 

I only managed about 5-10 games in it before they nerfed it, pah!

 

Definitely waaay more op than the original AMX ELC bis.  Comparatively.

I always likes the better gun handling and continuous firepower of the single shot to the autoloader.  Then they nerfed that for no particular reason.

When the nice guy loses his patience the devil shivers.

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.

 

Yes, that’s what I was thinking too.

 

The old KV1S was the tank that got me hooked to the game and started me thinking about how to improve, seeking out (in those days) Cosmic Carrie and Wizard Ken on YouTube and checking out forum guides and posts. 

 

Given WG have given up with balance at tier 6 (see: Asbo), I’d buy a prem old KV1S with the 122 just for the fun of it.
