  1. That is indeed the case. It's the counterweight for the heavy/long gun barrel.
  2. Actually, what you need to do is too look at it as an updated Hellcat, because when translated, Chassuer de Chars means Tank destroyer...so once again, WG has FUBAR'd another tank and misclassified it.
  3. Ok, while I'm not a great tanker, I'm not entirely a scrub...that being said, I can rarely make HESH work properly. So obviously I'm doing something wrong. Could you please (using small words an idiot can understand) describe WHEN to use it, and more importantly HOW to use it.
  4. Yeehah! I'm Green! They have swallowed the "Everyone's a winner" PC bullshit. That's too bad because there are some horrendously bad players out there who SHOULD be labelled as "bad."
  5. you'll probably never see the M551, but you WILL see the turret and gun on the T8 T49 LT...it's top turret will be a Sheridan prototype and the 152mm gun w/o missiles will be the top gun. roughtly 2.3 rnds a min Stats: Hitpoints: 1100 Top gun: 152mm Gun-Launcher XM81 Penetration: 76/152,4/76 (HE/HEAT/gold HE, gold HE shells have larger blast radius it is assumed) Damage: 910/700/910 DPM with HEAT: 1825 Aim time: 4s Accuracy: 0,6 Depression: -10 Hull turnrate: 44 Hp/t: 24,74 Weight: 22,234 tons Viewrange: 400 The Next Lower gun will be: One thing interesting is that it also has a 90mm with HESH ammo: 90mm T132E3: HESH/HEAT/HE 102/250/45 mm penetration 320/240/320 damage So even if you don't want to use the 152mm, you can use the 90mm guns.
  6. I have to agree with you there...however, in 9.3 the chaffee loses both it's top gun and top turret, as well as it's ridiculous MM...it will be turned into a T5 LT and have commensurate MM to go with the loss of weight.

    Help W/Obj 416

    I'm not a great player by any means. I usually do decently in mediums...but I'm having difficulty with the Obj 416. I could use some help on this tank. Are there any purples out there willing to share their expertise?

  10. I keep 2 drums worth of gold on my autoloaders...and only use it when it's needed. Didn't do too badly in it either.
  11. Would like to see Wn8 include scouting xp...probably won't happen though.
  12. Thank you guys, I appreciate the responses. Unfortunately, I excel at passive scouting...even the great Garbad admitted it...lol, and the Chaffee is the best at that. So, I guess in the end I'm screwed. Thanks again all.
  13. The search function here works as well as on the WoT forums...I did in fact do a search sir, and came up empty, hence my post. So essentially, for those who like to play light tanks, you're fucked by wn8? That's just another reinforcement for NOT playing light tanks then. thanks.
