The American HSTV-L light tank is probably the most controversial tank in War Thunder . It's a vehicle that I'm infamous for talking about a ton, so I figured I would play it again now that it's gone up to a battle rating of 11.0 without any historical reports being actioned. I've been communicating with Gaijin about buffing XM885, but it's been sporadic.

The Most Controversial Tank In War Thunder


  1. Would love to see a video on the m26 t99

  2. “If you put a robot protagonist in your game, I am more or less obligated to like them.” There are two robots inside you, Revenant and Pathfinder.

  3. I simp for your fursona so bad ngl fr fr

  4. Katyusha overpressure

    If you see this and consider it, please do the BM-13N, they updated the rocket sounds for it, and they sound really good.

  5. @Razrz hehe

  6. Man, Spook really got bought by big leg, huh?

    Also, could you make a video on the M7? It’s a nice design and a great “what could have been” tank in the vein of the T20

  7. This game really doesn’t like Tanks going really fast

  8. I really appreciated the Surfin bird edit in and out… I had to go back and make sure that wasn’t my own brain adding that in

  9. Type-10 players trying not to shoot themselves after Gaijin says Japan MOD’s claim about the Type-10’s armor and ammo capabilities is “false”

  10. 15:45 GOOFY AHH

  11. Quang Huy Nguyễn Đặng

    Everyone fear autocannon…. It’s correct in real life tank battle too…

  12. ohh omg the challenger 2 editt make me howl i need that video rn

  13. War Thunder players are different breed if you’re asking for unclassified military docs on tank shell rounds lmao

  14. Dear lord how am I two days late? Enjoyed the video as always, do sorta *slightly* blame you for me getting back into WT after moving away from it but eh, what are you gonna do?

  15. American main when armour

  16. At this point this is the spookstonmobile

  17. Play the Matilda II. Queen of the Desert most trolly tank in game

  18. The urge to leak a classified documents to fix a bug is high.

  19. Panzer 2C DAK If you can figure out how to play it.

  20. i know you hate Sweden but pls try bt42


  22. Father Lengthy Appendages

    But you did just make an archer video so I can see why you might hesitate

  23. why are you monotone.

  24. Man, getting out of war thunder was probably the best decision ever

  25. could you do a video on the lekpz m41? i feel like it is impossible to pen on stock ammo, specifically soviets seem to tank 2 hits in the barrel and then turning around and 1tapping me- Maybe thats a skill issue but i would still apreciate it.

  26. Have you done a video on the M50 Ontos? Would be fun to see that ungainly thing in action.

  27. Disabling Stuff is becoming ridiculous. Shooting cannon barrels with 20mm to 105mm often does nothing for me. I even shot an ASU 57 with my Panther and destroyed the ammo rack without killing the tank.

  28. Russian tank with ammo hits and other weak spots are just funny. You can hit the weak spots with whatever cannon you want sometimes and the shell will just do nothing or the ammo will not explode anf then you die because the russian has a better gaming chair then you

  29. Everyday I become more convinced that Gaijin is a propaganda op for the Russian MoD

  30. Man what you got to do to get Gaijin the fix things leak classified military documents or something like that :p

  31. The Disney Robin hood is the best tho xD

  32. I mean if this tank had the best shell the US has I feel that it would be able to keep up with all the other vehicles that can pin it but then people would complain about the main battle tanks not having it

  33. Tree hit box is honest to god bad so bad to the point I could have made it across the map in seconds in the fastest light tank but that one tree that I go by screws me up

  34. Yooo, another MechAssault fan, let’s gooo!

  35. its overpowered if the right person plays it

  36. wtf u have to show legit military documents in a bug report?

  37. This man really filed a FOIA for War Thunder purposes

  38. I only hear monkey noises

  39. RU devs gonna be RU devs…which is why the game is in such a moronic state right now. Have morons working for your company, expect moronic behavior.

  40. Basically full auto apcr

  41. Gaijin is just trying to compensate for Ukraine

  42. Thud community is soo fucking stupid. When PUMA got out everyone was complaining, people created a huge fuss about it hoe broken it is, but 2S38, barely any complaints and why? Cause it’s a fucking premium. Everyone would rather buy it than have it nerfed…

  43. I always think “Macarena” sponsors this videos

  44. That F#$ing “Z” at 4:55… Man, people are terrible. Great vid thou!

  45. Gas turbine engines: known for being more silent compared to turbodiesel engine
    Gaijin’s world: loudest engine in the game
