I review the LHMTV, a tier 8 British light tank in World of Tanks (WoT), with replays of tier 9 Fjords, tier 10 Minsk, and tier 8 Airfield battles.
While the LHMTV suffers from very low DPM like the British tier 7, 9, and 10 light tanks, the LHMTV has the best gun at-tier for its line. The gun has superb penetration and excellent alpha, and paired with the excellent camouflage I was able to get very good results in the LHMTV.
Strengths and Weaknesses
+ Superb AP pen (226)
+ Superb camo (~39 with Camo, BIA)
+ Superb max gun depression (-10)
+ Excellent alpha (230)
+ Small profile and turret
– Anemic DPM (1.4k base)
– Very low ammo capacity (25)
– Paper armor
– Very poor gun elevation on the sides and rear
– Very vulnerable to ramming damage (only weighs 5 metric tons)
3. Vents (what I use) or VStab
Even with Optics and BIA, you can’t reach 445m of view range without food unless you have Situational Awareness and Recon on your Commander, which means the Commander has 5 skills (SS, Camo BIA, SA, and Recon).
Because I prefer to run with Automatic Fire Extinguisher over food in paper tanks, I had to use Vents as the 3rd equipment to reach 445m of view range.
I talk through how I’m reading the battle as it unfolds and discuss key decisions and mistakes. My hope is that these videos meaningfully help players improve their gameplay.
