Good idea..bad idea...T49....

Recommended Posts

The T49 is getting a lot of love here. I am contributing to that love and it brings big smiles to my face!

 

So.. would it be a good idea or bad idea (and could it be done) to make a wotlabs tank company made entirely of T49s?

 

Pros.. Cons.. discuss =D

View range abuse and camo doesn't help much against an organized team that is willing to push into you. KV-1s can high roll a T49, so once you get spotted you are horked. One T-50 zigging and zagging till he got close and BOO YAH, the Hellcats and KV-1s cut you apart.

 

That being said, if its all purples driving, you could probably win a lot using t-28s and the 57mm needle gun.

Well, I guess the con would be you'll be using all 5s fighting 6s?

So then, how about going all-out Hellcat doom patrol?

I admit to being unversed in medium TCs. Doing some reading I see 1s, hellcat and VK3601s are some of the perferred equipment at that lvl.

 

leaning towards bad idea.. but will fantasize about rolling over them anyway 8)

5 cromwell + 5 hellcat is the "I'm faster than you and I'm better than you and now you die" squad.

I see the main stumbling block with running entirely fragile TDs like the Hellcat and such is the lack of sustainability and inability to assault a positions.

That said, it would be a lulzy proposition for taking out pubbie TCs.

I've run the t49 in some mediums, late at night, pubby style with nobody calling against particularly poor teams once. We were goofing off and seeing what we could get away with, so we would have 1 1s, 1 hellcat, a couple t49s and a load of Luchs and a couple pz1c too.

We were still winning.

When we went all lights with 3 T49s, we still almost won a match.

But any good team would have slaughtered us.

I say if you run a couple it will be fine but you can't run too many.

Crank did that one night and I think we only lost one match the whole evening.
