    LYs will have better pen than the E-100 if WG decides to atick to the current stats.

    Reload: 8.822s – This will be too OP…

  3. CynicalDutchie says:

    Just what we needed, more cancerous derp guns. Let them ruin all the tiers

      IKR, it’s like they ruin the ability of TDs to hide in the corner and snipe and HTs to just roll down with no fear! These flankers should be stopped!!!

    FODASSSSSSS loook thats stats !!! DERP GUN WITH 8s RELOAD ???????????????????????????/ FODAS LOOK THAT !!!! 0.38 !!!!!!

  5. KermitWOT says:

    I assume that those gun stats are for the 105mm and not the derp

    Damn, I was hoping for a 152mm HEAT round with 300mm penetration 😀

    This one Also have crappy power to weight. What gives?

  8. Interesting. Whole hull covered in spaced armor too i see. What’s beneath it, standard T49 hull?

    • vah2016 says:

      No, its just the M551 basic body shape. Which means aluminum (paper) armor 🙂

      • then why is it blue? check the armor scale in the bottom, the right one is for spaced armor.

      • ndiver says:

        Because technically, the M551 was an amphibious tank made to reply to the soviet amphibious PT76. The small hull (that you can see here: http://i.imgur.com/qKuEymW.png ) is covered by aluminum tanks full of polystyrene foam for buoyancy. That’s what is represented with this spaced armor.
        The T49 ingame is in reality not related to the XM551. The T49 is a prototype derived from the M41, characterized by its T49 turret mounted on a M41 hull (the hulls of the T49 and M41 are exactly the same, because the goal was just to increase the firepower of the M41). Schematics of the historical T49: http://i.imgur.com/VKr43Nt.jpg
        Additionally, there was a prototype called M41 / XM551 turret testbed. This prototype that had the M41 hull with the XM551 turret, to allow to test the turret that was ready when the hull of the XM551 was not.
        To make the ingame T49 unique in its kind, and have a choice of secondary turret and gun, WG decided (and I’m glad of it) to merge these two prototypes as a single tank, because they both share the same M41 hull and just differ by their respective turrets / guns.
        I hope these explanations help you to see what is what. See also this article explaining more in detail with pictures of both prototypes: http://ftr.wot-news.com/2014/02/18/t49-light-tank-us-upcoming-tier-8/

    Odd looking tank. In all the pictures of the Sheridan I see online, none seem to have this boxy (and rather ugly) backside. I wonder what they are basing that on?

  10. MajorOfWar13 says:

    Question? Are the current tier 8’s moving to tier 9? Or are we getting new 9’s? Cause the Wz is identical to the tier 8 and the T49 has the Sheridans turent and gun already.

  11. vah2016 says:

    Shouldve added this imo http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2016/39/1475258341-m551-105.png
    Also didnt WG bosses say they were never gonna add m551?

    • ndiver says:

      If you look the article, the XM551 will have two guns: the 152mm and a 105mm, which was considered in the early development of this tank. The picture you show is a later test installing the 105mm L7 in the M551.

  12. Way underpowered compared to the german tier 10 light. Less hp less hp/ton ratio. less traverse on hull and turret less view range. WTF

    • Well the T49 is UP too compared to Ru251, T54LT and the rest of them, that doesn’t stop lots of people from playing it. Why? For the big KABOOM of course, delivered roughly every 8s on T10 instead of 20 we have now on T8. Plus if i’m correct it’s hull is covered in (very thin, 3mm?) spaced armor, so you can’t pen it back with HE. Can’t wait for it!

  13. димо says:

    its armor looks very cheap

  14. DeadArashi says:

    based on the DPM it should be:
    ROF = 2.91
    Reload = 20.61s

  15. looks like the German, soviet and chinese will be the nice tier 10 lights… hopefully.
