What defining characteristics of the Vickers, make it a better or even a different, but equal choice?

It has turret armor and light tank abilities


Working as intended

So more armor and a little better camo, but a worse gun (even the T-62's is better)

You say that like the t62’s gun is bad.   Most tanks wish they had that gun.

No, no, I agree. The T-62 gun is great; not as good as the Leopard's, but still great.

I'm just a little disappointed in the Vicker's gun.

I have both tanks and love them both but my preference is definitely biased towards the Vickers Light. It is fast, hits hard and reloads fairly quick. Plus it's turret armor is still fairly good even after the nerf. The Leopard is quick and has a gun that shoots like a laser but doesn't do nearly as much damage and its armor is nearly paper thin and much more difficult to do well in.

The vickers has better view range, is smaller, has hesh, and has useable armor, and if you look on blitzstars, it has a higher average winrate than the leopard 1.

Cheap HESH, not high pen HESH.  
 

But Vickers gets some useful mantlet armor and a smaller turret.  
   Better mobility, smaller size, and light tank camo combined with best view range. 

 

The only positive for the Leo 1 is the gun, (DPM, Pen, and Dispersion).

View range, turret armor, cheap hesh, camo, and low profile.

It's like a sneakier leo that trades firepower for greater parameters.

Should be the other way around. Vickers you can peak a ridge line with little worry of being penned when compared to leopard. But leopard has just about a perfect gun
RNG is rigged !

I dont have leo but as far a playing against them i would rather be facing a leo. HE is very effective against it.

You can depress the Vickers gun while fleeing. The Leo loses its gun depression off the rear. One of my biggest pet peeves.
