I review T-50-2, a tier 6 Russian premium light tank in World of Tanks (WoT), with replays of tier 8 Minsk and Mines battles.

The T-50-2 is a fast light tank with a relatively weak 57mm gun, so the drivers need to choose engagements wisely.

Strengths and Weaknesses
+ Excellent mobility
+ Good gun handling
+ Good gun depression (-7)
+ For incoming frontal fire, the mantlet offers some protection and the turret’s outer edges are auto-bounce
– Low alpha (85)
– Low silver AP penetration (118)
– Tall profile
– Fishtails and is relatively easy to tip

Recommended Equipment
1. Optics
2. Rammer
3. Vents

With the relatively good gun handling, GLD is unnecessary.

I talk through how I’m reading the battle as unfolds and discuss key decisions and mistakes. My hope is that these videos meaningfully help players improve their .

  1. I was going to write “First!” but then realized for the life of me I couldn’t figure out why fuckwits do that.

  2. Legend of Dolphin77

    Yo great vid as always and thanks to your videos i got 5k dmg in my stock t49 🙂

  3. Lots of good insights that i will take in mind while playing my T-50-2, very great and informative series overall… Keep up the good work!

  4. t69 was probably reloading or scared of arty

  5. I met you in my first battle yesterday I was afraid u were recording while I was playing my thunderbolt so I didn’t want to yolo rush you 🙂 cause I was on the Enemy team

  6. Bottom tier in this tank reminds me of classic LT mm.

    I’m on the road, so I actually had to have my mom log in so I could have this tank, lol.

  7. Great video

    I love Tippy-50-2
    One of my favorite tanks.

  8. ArtyPreventsCamping

    I’m great at recognizing fights that I can’t win thing is it seems though I’m always put into situations I cant win every day I think “well I cant go over there because there are 4 TDs in the back that’ll wreck me and I can’t go to the other flank because theres a bunch of heavies I cant pen even with gold” or ” we’re going to lose this game because we lost both flanks and I cant successfully fight the enemy tanks that are on either side”

  9. 5-2 lead is deceptive.   Not if u run xvm.  xvm keeps a running tally of total team hit points at the top.  so no matter what the death count, you always have a better idea which team is actually ‘winning’.  i.e., the team with more hp left is really winning.  (almost always)
