The M 41 90 statistically performs better than other tier 8 light tanks, probably due to its excellent gun that offers good alpha, DPM, and gun handling. The driver has to be careful with the M 41 90 as it is a large squishy target and possesses sluggish acceleration.
I was surprised that this tank was the voted on the most in the last community poll, as it is not always available for purchase.
