I do remember the first-release Caern where we thought it was an effective and even fun HT, but that it was lacking. It's good, but is one aspect shy of being a really memorable tank; we thought all it needed was DPM but we can't have that because the AT 15's main hat of DPMonster will be gone.

 

I just can't believe that CaeAX would actually be OP especially with 357 and powercreep on a tank with its kind of gameplay. Especially on sprem-heavy servers like ASIA. Maybe on AUS it would be OP, but on ASIA I can't imagine it.

 

ASIA server players don't aim, they just press 2 which means they bounce constantly.

 

Plus its mobility is not really talked about, which is odd because it really shifts for a hull-down Heavy. Its faster than the T26E5 by a mile.

Minor nitpick but you didn't actually show the gun handling.

 

The stock soft stats are:

Moving: 0.10

Tank traverse: 0.10

Turret reaverse: 0.08

 

With the usual Vert stab/rammer/optics and BiA/Gun handling skills they are:

Moving: 0.07

Tank traverse: 0.08

Turret traverse: 0.05

 

For reference these are identical the that of the M60, which has the best gun handling in the game outside of cheese wedges in siege mode.

WG at it again with the [edited]Russian tanks.

I still hold the view that the 432 is the solution to making LT less unbearable , LT is probably the most team dependent class out there . What you spot and track , most of the time the team barely do anything to kill them . What happens then ? Most of the LT can't survive more than 2 hit of the 15 cm gun , barely enough penetration or damage to kill a tank that is not a LT . It takes a great amount of skills just to not die pointlessly . LT-432 and the upcoming HWK 30 seems to bring about the new standard that LT should follow .

Your opinion stated above .

 

  You mentioned to me before how you dislike a certain LT , personally what I feel is that most LT just don't have what it takes to be remotely competitive . I am not asking for a LT that can outdo a MT and make playing MT redundant . What I am looking for is an increase performance of LT so they are not just a bunch of free HP that can only bounce 4/5 shots they fire . Lastly , playing a LT in ANZ is so much easier than in HK but personally I prefer to judge tanks based off the main server's performance and sadly LT do not do well in HK's meta .

I have seen Caer AXs perform well in battles. I have never ever seen one carry a team.

 

Anecdotal, sure, but I've now played hundreds of matches where a Caer AX has put in an appearance.

m41 90 and type 62 both fire HEAT though, I assume the lt432 has APCR.

I only get the most prestigious of 3 marks.

APCR standard, AP premium, same as the T-100.

Also worth noting that AP gets better normalisation compared to ACPR. So 218 AP is going to penetrate better on angled armor compared to 218 apcr.

Just saw they gave claus one. Golly gosh, you'd think they'd learn to give them only to people decent at lights. He makes that thing look painful.

as the title say this tank was way too good for a light tank here is a few reason why?

1.it has armor,ya i know you guys say LTTB also have armor,but this tank can bounce a strv gun with it turret and with it smaller profile this tank gonna wreck tier 7 and lower.

2.it has -7 depression people always say who need gun depresion when you are russian,this is not the case for this tank

3.great camo value it has a camo value which can make elc even 90 look the same as this tank

4.gun which are better than some of the tier 8 med tank(alpha is bad though)

 

can some CC request this before they release? 

i mean i love this game but please do something before it wreck the game more

I doubt wg would be giving CCs them for free if they wanted an honest opinion.

So on the 4 maps where a light tank is useful combined with the 1 in 20 games where you're not bottom tier in a 3-5-7 and partnered with some 44%er in his E100 the tank might be competitive?

Even without it will likely be more competitive than any other 8 light. And just as with the 44100 vs 54mod comparison, if you're going to get shat on most of the time, may as well be mobile. 

 

The downsides appear to be alpha and comparatively low credit modifier. Decent trade offs considering the advantages.

Maybe, but the real issue is would you rather be in this or the BC12t with your 44%er.....?
