Ladies and Gentlemen, this poor creature you see before you is known as LTG. He has a rare developmental defect known as Russian Physics. RP can hideously deform and often leave sufferers with flattened bodies and bulging extremities, causing severe discomfort and societal isolation.

Our goal is to reach 2,410,000 credits for further research into the causes and cures for RP.

Only together can we find a cure!

 

 

Free Goodies;

Here's my highest damage game in it so far. http://wotreplays.com/site/3522047#stats

Some scouting fun (I need to respec my crew, it was a heavy crew and doesn't have VR skills) http://wotreplays.com/site/3522051#malinovka-schnitzeltruck-ltg

Some pewpewing and stuff http://wotreplays.com/site/3522056#murovanka-schnitzeltruck-ltg

First mark \o/ http://wotreplays.com/site/3524243#mines-schnitzeltruck-ltg 

 

Essentially its a T-43 with far better gun handling and mobility that trades HP and a tiny bit of RoF. Its pretty fun IMO and works surprisingly well. Also its stupid tiny with insane camo. 35% camo with 3 crew members at 80% camo skill and the commander not having camo yet.

Edit: this is the LTG appreciation thread in case that wasn't obvious

And I thought I was doing surprisingly well despite being a broken excuse for sub-functional. This little tank has crippled my self-esteem and self-image in one glance.

Now i am thinking we should make a dating simulator on Schnitzel and the LTG and another one on Leggasiini and the O-HO

Nice replays!  I have to say I'm looking pretty hard at this tank now.  Played well, I have found it to be a somewhat intimidating foe in battles (at least while running LTs myself).  

Let's face it, there are no T7 meds really worth having, and precious few other T7 tanks (with the exception of the T29 and perhaps the Tiger).  This tank seems not only an improved version of the T43, but kind of an improved version of the KV-13.  

Now that LTs see regular MM, this tank, and the 13-75 and T71, might be the best of the bunch.

Yup. Tier 7 seems to be the best tier for lts now. Very capable. Only my vk43 and is2b beat my ltg's dpg atm and that's due to the fact they can take a hit more than anything

my absurd WR in the ltg is highly likely to be influenced by the low sample of 40 games (near 80% solo WR). However I feel that high 60's would be very easily attainable for me possibly even 70%+ due to the new MM

prior to this patch my LT solo WR generally was mid 60's

puppets-who-kill-buttons-the-bear-e13948

I picked up the LTG this weekend and have a couple of shitter level cure notes. 

It's ugly and fascinating in an abstract surreal Picasso kind of way.  It often reminds me of Buttons the Bear from  "Puppets who Kill".

Like most stock tanks if your starting from scratch with a 75% crew its extremely underwhelming as you cant really scout or fight in it.  The underwhelming view range cripples your ability to scout and the poor maneuverability hampers your ability to fight and flex.

I had the top gun and top radio researched already (so ran suspension eqpt. to mount them) but chose to grind out the the engine and then the tracks.  The engine and track upgrade makes it feel more like a light tank and less like a skateboard in mud.  Even with optics and the crew nearing 100% the view range is still underwhelming.

This tank will be a serviceable scout and can leverage a good crew and map knowledge, but it is painful to get there.  My first 20 games or so have been feast or famine and god help my team if my LTG was the only "scout" and the map needed one...

Consider free XPing the modules and installing and retraining a moderately developed crew if you choose to pursue a cure for the LTG...

VR really sucks on it, my main complaint. You cant hit 445m VR without binocs

I have not watched your replays yet.  I am running vents, rammer, optics (I think) cause they were laying around.  What is your equipment and loadout?

(for some reason I thought vstab didnt come up... then again maybe that's what I actually am running)

I don't run food very often but may give it a try...

I tend to run food on most tanks now just because why not

Got my 2nd mark this match at 51 games \o/

I generally "neglect" to give Salty TD players that camp 1/2 line and refuse to flex, relocate, or move up according to the battle flow any help...

The last time it happened to me, I kept getting lit by the camper in the E1 magic bush and could not counter spot them.  With likely four or five big TDs for support lighting them was a no go. The TDs and arty refused to blind fire and would not move to a position of support, if I yolo'd in.  So went hill and we rolled the east side for the win while our 1/2 line campers got rolled, sucked to be them...

Wanted to keep DPG over 2k but had to do a lot of passive scouting last few games. Got LT-14.3 done tho! The WR is solo but idk what it would be over a larger sample

I'm really enjoying this little deformed bastard. It has some great qualities such as it can be played as a much as medium as a light. I'm not a LT player and this is my highest tier LT and I'm loving it. The gun handling is good, the speed is nice, the camo is great. The view range is really the only down fall but it can be worked with or around.

But but but... how do you scout with 360 view range?

However this is so ugly that I kinda want it.. but I hate MT-25 with a passion. It feels so useless in all games. Maybe I need to L2P.
