Playstyle and an Analysis of Various Styles Being a high-ranking member of a tank academy has many perks, such as endless garage slots, free premium tanks and being able to tell things happening before it happens such as when my enemies will spontaneously explode in a hail of ammo rack fury, or how the future matchmaking system works. This perk has some great advantages, it allows me to see how inexperienced players play, thus allowing me to stomp future inexperienced enemies with impunity, but it also allows me to seriously examine what common mistakes players make when they are confronted with different situations.
Few in the game will have the consistent and real-time experimental guinea pigs all students please use normal complaint procedures! I recently hosted a special session with students in the academy on solo combat, which involved each student facing me in a solo encounter. The results were varied, with some achieving more success than others. But a few common traits were clearly visible for those who, like me, were specifically looking for it.
kazoospec is spot on it’s a tank to keep around for those days when matchmaking is pissing you off or you’re having a bad day with that being said I prefer to play my m22 locust (premium tank) over the pz1c most of the time if I’m going for a tier3 light tank.
The game involves all five of the major aircraft players in World War II: And over time, many more planes and ships will be added. More recent patches have given the United States their own complete tech tree of armored fighting vehicles, a full line of British tanks were in December , and French air and ground forces in This game provides examples of: Acceptable Breaks from Reality: Arcade mode, suitably enough for the fairly mindless shootfest it’s intended to be, features such wild unlikelihoods as Bf s and P s on the same team, the Japanese fighting over Stalingrad, American planes bombing Pearl Harbor!
Averted in realistic battles, where players can’t respawn, are limited to aircraft used by a specific side and must land to replenish ammunition and weapons. Very averted in simulator battles, where everything follows the laws of physics and there is no videogame-style help for the player whatsoever – not even a chase camera. A damaged floatplane on a friendly airfield will respawn in the air when repairs are completed.
Emphasis should be put on speed in order to maximize the Locust’s utility as a light tank. History of creation and combat usage Development The development of this tank began in late as a request from the British military for an airmobile light tank that could travel on a glider. The British airborne forces used gliders as a mean to transport troops and equipments, and by the gliders were rated to be able to carry a tank weighing about 5. The British had a light tank design, the Mk.
VII Tetrarch , but it was not built for the focus of airborne operations so the request was made for a purely-built airborne light tank to replace the Tetrarch, and for the tank to be made not in Britain due to constraints in industrial capacity.
Nov 24, · Im Gegensatz zu vielen anderen Premium-Panzern hat die M22 Locust kein spezielles Matchmaking, was bedeutet, dass sie oft in den TierKampf eintritt .
The Locust began development in after the British War Office requested that the American government design a purpose-built airborne light tank which could be transported by glider into battle to support British airborne forces. The War Office had originally selected the Light Tank Mark VII Tetrarch light tank for use by the airborne forces, but it had not been designed with that exact purpose in mind so the War Office believed that a purpose-built tank would be required to replace it.
The United States Ordnance Department was asked to produce this replacement, which in turn selected Marmon-Herrington to design and build a prototype airborne tank in May The prototype was designated the Light Tank T9 Airborne , and was designed so that it could be transported underneath a Douglas C Skymaster transport aircraft, although its dimensions also allowed it to fit inside a General Aircraft Hamilcar glider.
After a series of modifications were made to the initial prototype, production of the T9 began in April It was significantly delayed, however, when several faults were found with the tank’s design. Marmon-Herrington only began to produce significant numbers of the T9 in late and early , and by then the design was considered to be obsolete; only were built by the time production ended in February As a result, the Ordnance Department gave the tank the specification number M22 but no combat units were equipped with it.
However, the War Office believed that the tank would perform adequately despite its faults, so the tank was given the title of “Locust” and were shipped to Great Britain under the Lend-Lease Act. Seventeen Locusts were received by the 6th Airborne Armoured Reconnaissance Regiment in late , but mechanical problems led to the tanks being withdrawn in favour of the Tetrarchs previously used by the regiment. In October however, the remaining Tetrarchs of the regiment were replaced by Locusts and eight were used during Operation Varsity in March The tanks did not perform well in action; several were damaged during the landing process and one was knocked out by a German self-propelled gun.
Background[ edit ] The Light Tank Airborne M22, also known as the Locust, began development in late in response to a request by the British military earlier in the year for an airmobile light tank which could be transported onto a battlefield by glider. These gliders would be used to transport troops and heavy equipment, which by was to include artillery and some form of tank.
In a conference held on January 16, , it was decided that the General Aircraft Hamilcar , under development at the time, would be used to transport a single tank or two Universal Carriers. This made it available for use by the airborne forces and it was chosen by the War Office as the tank to be transported by glider. The gunner or commander, in addition to his own duties, had to act as loader for the 2-pounder, which caused delays in combat; a report on the tank written in January stated that since the commander had both to fight and control the tank, controlling a troop of Tetrarchs during combat would be almost impossible.
The Light Tank (Airborne) M22 or Locust was an American-designed airmobile light tank which was produced during World War II. The Locust began development in after the British War Office requested that the American government design a purpose-built airborne light tank which could be Used by: United Kingdom, United States, Egypt, Israel, Belgium.
Goes insanely fast in a straight line due to unbelievable acceleration power, but it has trouble turning. It’s basically a weird moving polyhedron, so it can bounce a lot of machine gun fire and the odd cannon shot, but it isn’t as bouncy as the T Do not reward Wargaming for that kind of behavior. It isn’t particularly overpowered compared to a tank you can get for gold, so don’t pay an exorbitant amount for it. It went on sale for a few days, and allegedly was so overpowered they pulled it from the premium store.
Newsflash – any tier 3 with preferential matchmaking will be overpowered because that’s what preferential matchmaking does to a tank, it makes it win more. Anyway this is an average tier 3 TD with m view range and the worst gun in the game, the Russian 76mm. Its frontal armor is also immune to machine guns, though 60mm of armor isn’t going to stop much at tier 4.
If this tank was put on sale again, I do not believe it would outperform the T , especially not with the map changes. No more Province or Malinovka at lower tiers really lowers the ceiling on how well a turretless tank can perform. A – Preferential matchmaking tier 4 medium, seeing tier 4s and 5s like the tier 4 heavies do.
This tank is kind of atrocious – it’s like an A , a notably terrible tank, but with 75 HEAT pen for the gold and m view range. Goes fast, I suppose. It was a pre-order tank, and the WoT playerbase are incredibly whiny, so don’t expect it to go on sale.

Route description[ edit ] Marker at Good Harbor, south of Leland The southern terminus is three miles 4. The road itself comprises numerous turns and hills, making it a very popular drive for tourists visiting the area from areas such as Chicago and Detroit, especially during autumn. The road runs north to the village of Onekama running east and north of Portage Lake before returning north to Arcadia.
Apr 06, · Now, if that was a typo or you’re using vehicles in your lineup, then you can and probably will see those vehicles; is an absolutely atrocious BR for uptiering, I’ve found, and the vehicles in that spread are not equipped to handle their +1 BR counterparts (for example, see the M22 Locust).
Until this point, the British had been using the Light Tank Mk. VII Tetrarch for the role. The Tetrarch did not start out as an airborne tank however, so it was believed to be inferior to a vehicle dedicatedly designed for this role. The United States Ordnance Department received the request and began work on finding a suitable designer and builder. Walter Christie was first on their list, who in turn produced a prototype in This prototype did not meet the size requirements, however, so the Ordnance Department looked elsewhere.
The Marmon-Herrington Company then came forward with their own design. At the time, there was no thought given to parachuting the tank in, as large and strong enough parachutes did not exist at the time. The idea was to land the tank on the ground once the first wave of paratroopers or glider infantry had secured a suitable landing area. In April , a trial vehicle was produced and sent to Fort Benning, Georgia for testing. Between the conceptualization and pilot phases, however, the tank slipped over its 7.
Flames of War – M22 Locust ** Brand New **
Both have a weaker LFP [lower front plate, typically a weak point on all tanks; may also be called lower glacis] than the IS-6, but a stronger UFP [upper front plate, usually one of the most strongly-armored parts of any tank], which is generally a good trade. Both are a bit slow and inflexible, and have trademark bad Chinese gun handling, but these characteristics are common on all pref MM tier 8 heavies.
Not as competitive in tier 8 Strongholds due to being outclassed by regular MM heavies. Turret is reasonably bouncy, and the gun depression is now adequate if not exactly comfortable. Like its heavy tank brother, not as competitive in tier 8 Strongholds. Accepts US medium crews, although it is a medium tank in name only.

Leave a comment Sixty-eight years ago this week the war in Europe ended on the 7th, 8th, or 9th May, depending on your nationalistic or ideological preferences. The special offer this weekend is designed to celebrate this — and it is a true celebration. This is a true blockbuster offer, in many respects grander than even the 2nd Anniversary Special. The offer looks pretty much identical to that being offered on the NA server. Like most EU specials this one runs from Saturday morning to Tuesday morning.
There is also a special bonus code associated with the special, which grants a single day of premium account plus a bunch of the crew quality enhancing premium consumables. So let us get onto the offer itself. To start with the first victory on each vehicle will give a x5 experience bonus — very useful for though research grinds, but it also injects a quick burst into crew skill training. This is something everyone can enjoy For the highest-tier tanks however there are further bonuses in regards to crew experience.
This is a great bonus aimed squarely at the more veteran players, especially since they will often have crews working on their third or fourth crew skill where the grind is very pronounced. Players who avoid the very top-tier tanks are not left out however. I will definitely be happy playing the Jagdpanther this weekend. Looking at the regular tanks involved however I have never seen an offer this top-heavy before.

Yes, game is f2p. If you’re a Chinese or something. But if you have some money to spare life is suddenly easy. Premium account and Premium tank s. Gold ammo in randoms is useless.
M22 Locust – Tier III American Light – gold There are several reasons why this one is now first on my list. Firstly it is a low-tier premium, and I already own most of the premiums Tier V and below.
M22 Locust front left view M22 Locust front right view M22 Locust rear left view M22 Locust rear right view Historical Info The Light Tank Airborne M22, also known as the Locust, began development in late in response to a request by the British military earlier in the year for an airmobile light tank which could be transported onto a battlefield by glider. At the time the request was made, the War Office considered using the equipment in Britain’s fledgling airborne forces, which had been formed in June by order of the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill.
When officials at the War Office examined the equipment that would be required for a British airborne division, they decided that gliders would be an integral component of such a force. These gliders would be used to transport troops and heavy equipment, which by was to include artillery and some form of tank. Plans to transport an airborne tank went through a number of revisions, but by May it was considered feasible for a tank weighing 5.
In a conference held on January 16, , it was decided that the General Aircraft Hamilcar, under development at the time, would be used to transport a single tank or two Universal Carriers. A decision had recently been made by the War Office that light tanks were no longer to be generally used in the British Army; on the whole they had performed poorly during the Battle of France and were considered to be a liability.
This made it available for use by the airborne forces and it was chosen by the War Office as the tank to be transported by glider. However, it had not been designed specifically as an airborne tank or to be airmobile, and it also possessed several faults.

And as a bonus, I already get the L1A1 railgun thanks to my Conway. November 18, New French Heavies “review”: Tier 8 is kind of trash, paper hull, the turret only works against lower tiers and good luck meeting them with the current tier 8 matchmaking , trash gunhandeling not T34 level of gunhandeling but still Tier 9 is great, you actually get some decent armor. Small tumors are existant on the turret but can be hidding by using the gundepression.
Gun is decent mm is trash, use the mm Basically take a M and make it better in every single way better gunhandeling, same DPM, stronger armor with smaller weakspots, better mobility, slightly more health Atleast the M doesn’t get the shoulder plates I guess Tier 10 is disappointing tbh.
