T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

Recommended Posts

This was quite nice on new equipment, and it seems like IAU works all the time, but is weaker than VStab and IRM in 90% of cases.

After a delightful vacation from tanks I just had to come back and play my baby. Sadly some old habits came back like my propensity for autoaim but damn is the T49 still fun. Also seems I've broken spoilers.

I was hoping for the notch turret snipe, but the platoon double tap was worth it too.

Last night I finally got 2 other people running T49s and man oh man is it absolutely ridiculous. Took the hill on Tundra and proceeded to derp anything spotted. Of course one of our clickers decided that we weren't scouting properly and spent the entire game telling us we were trash.

Congrats on the 3-mark minivinny! Making a sexy tank even sexier with that third star...

All the activity in this thread has made me think of how long it's been since I last played the T49... It's been too long.

I had the same experience of a clicker complaining when I was playing in a triple T49 platoon. Starts off the game by saying we've already lost because of us. We quickly prove him wrong by killing 2 and crippling 1 in the first 3 minutes of the game. But that doesn't stop him. He then complains constantly about us not spotting (even though we walked away at the end of the game with something like 4k spotting between the three of us), and even took a shot near me to stun me once (although I will admit that was after me needling him in chat about how wrong he was). So, when the game was won, I went back and teamkilled him (this was back when team damage was still a thing). The salt was hilarious, and totally worth it.

@churchill50 Thanks man! Arty rage is a beautiful thing.

@SchnitzelTruck I'm running bond vents/vstab and bounty IRM so that might explain things.

Yep, arty rage definitely is a beautiful thing. I just miss the days when you could tk arty... It was a great way to let off some steam every once in a while.

 

They also buffed the gun performance when they moved the T49 to tier 9. The dispersion values on movement and hull traverse are both god-tier (0.07/0.07 fully equipped). It's only the turret traverse dispersion that's horrible (0.24 even fully equipped), but you can work around that by locking your turret, pre-aiming corners before poking them, etc.

Yeah I find ill land most of my shots provided I plan out my approach to minimize gun bloom.Prime example I had spotted the T49 earlier and saw he didn't move much on the minimap so I assumed he would still be sitting there waiting for me to peek again.

It had been a while since I had played the T49, so I took it back out for a spin, and this happened:

(Apparently that didn't embed. If anyone can tell me how to embed a Youtube video, I'd appreciate it).

That battle was also played without equipment. I've been using Bounty Equipment on the T49 lately, but moved it to something else and forgot to move it back.

Lately I've been switching back and forth between Bounty Rammer, V-Stab, and Optics (for that sweet view range) and Bounty Rammer, V-Stab, and IRM (for the gun handling). Still trying to decide which loadout I like more for solo play. In a platoon with other T49's, I definitely prefer the second setup, since one of the other T49's usually has a vision setup.

Not T49 specifically, but skills' recent sheri derp vid is rather glorious for those craving some HE pen action.

I have nothing super great to offer penetration wise for this thread as of right now since I just came back to the game, but I've been experimenting heavily with the new equipment setups available and this is what I'm currently running with for shits and giggles:

and this is a result from Fisherman's Bay in which I flubbed 3 shots and didn't pen the others, but out-scouted our EBR 105 by a significant margin:

Any other stupid meme setups anyone knows of that are effective?  I've mostly been focusing on playing vision and camo games so far for a change of pace, but I'm getting the derp ninja itch again
