Sheridan!  Neat!  I've always loved it for all its impractical fragility and uselessness in actual deployment.......

 

.....'cept......

 

wthif this thing you're bringing into the game?  Have your model designers ever actually seen a photo of a Sheridan that wasn't a half-completed PT-76 vismod version?  I can send them some Google links if they need...

I'm thinking they modeled it after the prototypes of the Sheridan and not the final product.

I actually want to try the T92E1 with the "stock" gun, I think it's gonna be like a go kart with a 105mm that slaps hard and quick. We'll have to see. Not interested in going for the Sheridan immediately, but I will max out the T92E1 immediately when I enter the game.

was told from *reliable sources* that it’s like a sp1c mounted with a derp gun into tier9.

the Sheridan in game is actually the XM551, which is a prototype. The really interesting thing is that you literally can't HE it without aiming for the turret, I wonder how will that affect the survivability of the tank. Oh also

It's 8mm of spaced armor, so it will pretty much stop HEAT rounds, while lowering HE rounds by a considerable amount. Specifically, Sheridans might have issues fighting themselves. 

 

The turret shouldn't be hard to aim for though.

Too early to tell, but a new T10 Light is definitely something to not overlook.  We have to see how it plays against other tanks, and what things it can do the Batchat cannot aside from shoot things from around the corner.

The real thing was designed as an amphibious vehicle, would be cool if you could drive around the moat on Castilla and pop out the other end without drowning.

I’ve always wished Canal could have the actual canal water ways filled in; and the only way you could cross are the bridges or corners across. Would be a fun experience

It's more mobile, so there's that.

How does the camo rating compare to the BatChat?

Worse, but not by much. It still has the 3rd best on-the-move camo in tier IX and X (out of 72 vehicles), only being outclassed by the 2 Batchats. It's view range is worse than same tier mediums.

 

It's also the lightest vehicle of those 2 tiers, so never ram!
