T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

492 posts in this topic

Spammed light tanks in their final hour, can't be honored to have this as a final battle. Full pen the ass of a gold-spamming SU-122, knock out both their arty, then work with arty to kite a KV-5 since I was at such low health for the win.

tbh this tank is the least affected by the changes, since the 152mm is viable because lolHE.

So I picked up this little monster (cancerwagon? I called it :doge: ) on sale last weekend and got it fully researched before the patch last night. I got to play around 10 battles with the derp before heading to bed and awaiting the patch, and while there was a significant lol factor to it, I can't say I enjoyed it too much because of the randomness. However, this patch the 90mm got a nice buff, both to gun handling and dpm. I have rammer/vstab/optics with Cola and my reload is 4.95 seconds. The APCR round has pretty good shell velocity and decent pen of 212. Combine that with the speed, camo, gun handling, and gun depression, and this tank is absolutely amazing to pub with all the lights running around.

Still good with the 152. It traded 7kph top speed for 10 hp/t, 10 VR, 300 hp and a hull dispersion buff of 0.06. Totally an upgrade.

it hasn't lost it's 152?

Nope

Also if you run the 152mm, this tank got straight-up buffed. More HP, VR, better acceleration, while keeping everything else about the gun pretty much the same

I've been playing it with the 90mm and I can't honestly see a reason to use the 152mm aside from screwing with other light tanks. Having 3k DPM and the gun handling/penetration to back it up is just insane, and you can circlejerk heavies so easily you don't even have to think about it. 3k dmg games have become the norm for me in it, while I was only averaging 1400 before the update. This tank just shits all over the Ru 251 IMO.

Sadly, having tested the 152mm on both the T49 and the Sheridan, the standard guns are both better.

The only merit of the 152 right now is the sheer amount of light tanks running around. Even then, when an enemy T49 decides to yolo me with the 152 I typically will come out on top because 90mm HE works really well against them (and it has 4.1k DPM).

90mm T49 is why I sold the RU251: If I want something like the old RU, I'll play the 90mm. Want the HE shenanigans, play the 152mm. 1 tank, twice the utility

(that said... the 90mm is certainly the better gun, and I LOVE that WG made both viable on the T49)

Well in this patch the RU251 really lost its niche. The HEP is about all its got going for it. The 1390 crushes all these 90mm toting LTs in the firepower dept. 152mm T49 is kind of a bad tank in this very LT heavy post patch though, so I expect I'll try it out in a few weeks and see what a more normalized team composition yields

Wait til you get your hands on the HEP the Rhm Pzw has w/ 120mm pen. Its quite nice!

Too bad that and the accuracy and speed are all it has going against the Sheridan :doge:
