[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

T2 Light Tank

AnnoA19_T2_lt.png

750

The T2 Light Tank is an American tier 2 premium light tank.

The vehicle prototype was designed and built by Rock Island Arsenal in 1933. The chassis and suspension elements of the Vickers Mk. E (Vickers "6-tonner") tank were used. Trials of the T2 prototype were successful, but the T2E1 variant was preferred due to its higher terrain crossing capacity.

The T2 Light Tank is a very fast tank, with a top speed of 72 km/h and one of the highest hp/ton ratings of any tank in game. It has a fairly weak gun and poor armor though, with the second weakest rear armor of any tank. Its use as a deep penetration scout is limited by its short radio range. The only way to play this tank is to never stop and try to engage the enemy by circling, but beware that it has a large turning radius at speed so you'd better plan ahead as you approach. Its light weight means it takes heavy damage when rammed, usually tracking it and often outright killing it.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Great acceleration and top speed
  • Good gun for tier 2
  • Good gun elevation
  • Small size and good camouflage helps while scouting/spotting in bushes
  • Absurdly high ammo (1200)


Cons:


  • Poor armor
  • Poor view range
  • Poor signal range
  • Dies easily if rammed
  • Has scout matchmaking so can see tier 4 battles


Performance

The T2 Light will excel when top tier, as it is very fast and has a wealthy amount of burst damage. You are unable to bounce shots in this tank however, so take caution when fighting enemies, and try to attack them when they are distracted and use your speed to get back into cover, then 7 seconds later, repeat. As it is, it's fast, but it has a lousy radio, so it doesn't make for a good scout. Training your radio operator in the perk Signal Boosting will improve your radio range.


Crew Skills

Commander: Sixth Sense, Camouflage, Recon.


Driver: Off Road Driving, Camouflage, Clutch Braking.


Radio Operator: Signal Boosting, Relaying, Camouflage.

Historical Info

This vehicle started the use of aircraft engines in tanks. This eventually became the M2A2 light tank. One unit was built based on the experience gained from the Cunningham T1 - T6 series. This unit was built at the Rock Island Arsenal.
