T25E6 is good. I'd only trade it if you have a duplicate Patriot.

 

Bourrasque is popular so I reckon it will be a freebie in a future season/op.

I used to think the Draugen was cool until they gave them away for free and every shmoe in town had one.

Might be too late to add my two cents, but the Trade-In doesn't seem worth it anymore. I mean, in this case, if you are really anxious to own the French tank, then go for it. But eventually there will be a sale, and you can pay the same amount of gold for the Bourrasque without getting rid of another vehicle. I have dozens of tanks I never play. I like to hold onto them in case I get a duplicate with a Key Card.

Looking through the trade in list I see the Bourrasque is there. I have a T26E5 that I've never played from somewhere (Ranked Lootbox probably) and I was wondering if it was worth swapping for the Bourrasque? I'm a fan of the french lights and love the BC25T when it works and I've just had a couple of thousand gold from a long haul. I've also never bothered with the US mediums. Any advice?

 

Why haven't you played Patriot? It's amazing vehicle! Some would say WG overbuffed it...

The Patriot is too good a tank to trade away. Keep it, and wait for another opportunity.

(The T26E5 is the Patriot, so it's actually a heavy - Basically it's a faster firing T32.  Very strong turret.  Good view range.  OK, but not great mobility).

 

It has a smaller gun than the T32, so of course it fires faster. It's about the same as the T32's smaller gun.

 

It's the faster tank though, which makes the difference for me.

I totally agree.

 

Wait for a sale. I got a M46 KR from a long haul chest a while back. It would've been a dup but I traded the original. Keep the prem, wait for a sale (unless you MUST have it now)

Thanks for everyones thoughts. I pulled the trigger this morning anyway for 1300 gold and then weirdly won all eleven games I played.

 

Not even tried the new baguette yet. Stopped after going full beast mode in the T54 Lwt. I did 3.2K direct and 3.5K spotting with 4 kills including I ammo racking a 279 from distance.:trollface:

The Bourrasque is actually a really good tank played as a scout with a mean gun. You will have to run a full premium ammo load if you want to pen anything above your tier. Add all the camo perks and its a sneaky little fast tank

Too bad you can't trade your ww2 prems in for cold war tanks.

Traded the Patriot for the 131 and Fatherland for the Bourrasque (plus some silver) and also claimed the free GamePass pack. Happy days.

As a good player, you'll make good use of the Borat.
