The DPM stock...is a joke, a flat out joke and I don't see it getting considerably better either with the better guns, maybe a bit but is ROF is not very good.  And no matter the gun you get 160 alpha damage.  Sure the the top guns get you better pen but the alpha of 160 remains and frankly is almost laughable combined with the ROF,  The tank looks awesome and is fast and nimble....so it can serve a purpose but c'mon man.....seriously these guns?

Apparently the only American 76mm's designed by Russians.  I can deal with 160 alpha, if I can hit and penetrate the target.  The bloom and aim time on this are ridiculous.

​Laughable all around...you're right..gun handling stinks too.  I just checked, my Crom B and Sentinel IV both shoot over 12 shells per min...this bulldog at tier VII shoot at barely over 9 stock...I get it, its stock but even with the top gun and turret its still less.  AND ITS 160 alpha per shot.  Its gotta be a  way too much vodka induced mistake.

The bulldog does have less dpm and pen than the T71 and I thought the T71 was supposed to be hard light tank to play ...

It's very nimble..until you scout ahead and are tracked and or hit with a one shot (sometimes in that order..or the other way around).  Gun is lacking. I think of it as a yolo tank.

It's not an easy tank to drive at all. It's not supposed to be. I've played 12 games and I'm at 33% with 4 victories. Now I attribute some of the losses to crap teams, but it's tough right out of the gate. I can tell though, that when all the equipment is loaded and the crew skills are complete....it will be a serious winner.

Truth.  It'll still struggle to deal with any IS-spam.  In its favor, however, are better depression, turret placement, mobility, and armor angles... so I've taken more than a couple HE shells that would've one-shot the T71, and it can hull down peek effectively.

 

T71 is abysmal.  M41 is just mildly disappointing.

On the T37 now and its been a struggle. More because of teams than anything this morning, but hearing all the negativity surrounding the Bulldog I'm starting to wonder if its even worth the effort to continue up this line. I was really looking forward too it, but it seems every time WG adds an American line lately they've gone out of their way to make it underwhelming.

 

Maybe its just bad timing to come after the German and Russian lights that started out so overpowered thats causing them to overbalance these.

So I blasted all my gold to get past the bulldog...emphasis on dog.  The T-49 is a riot with the derp, its hilarious, expensive...and don't even think about taking long distance shots..but its worth it to me and getting past the dog using gold was worth it.

Now back to the dog.  My dog is now fully upgraded with the auto loader, so its better but its still a joke.  The auto loader makes the dpm issue a little easier to deal with but overall its still a joke of a tank which does not compare to the Dragon, the LTTB (so OP not even funny) , SP IC....its a tier 6 tank NOT a tier 7.  Thanks Russia!....no where is that Stoli.....

There are so many other tanks at Tier 7 that can do more damage to you than you could do to them...even with the premium rounds, your penetration and damage is just horrible for a tank with paper thin armor.....I've play it at the front, in the middle and at the back as a sniper but it is a tank that just give you that "wth" moment everything nothing happened when you land a shot at the enemy....the T49 is not much better, even with its derp gun (the 152mm) - long aim time and a reload longer than a T34 heavy....

I think where they are going is to introduce a tank and then to slowly buff it.  It makes sense to fear a light tank being OP like the Dragon is/was/alwayswillbe and the Bulldong was notorious on PC for breaking tier VII tournaments the way the scum-driven T67 breaks Tier V over there.  They rectified that, to the chagrin of people who played a roflop tank only because it gave them an unfair advantage, but it is accepted by all who have honor to have been necessary.  More than likely it will be made better in Blitz eventually.  I don't think its counterpart T71 is a bad tank either, just not really my style.

It's Russian bias in the extreme. The bulldog could pen a 54/55 in real life. Right through the front. The ARVN that didn't abandon them did fine. 

 

you can't even pen a lot of mediums from the front - with PRAMMO!

 

IS is doable with good aim, but KV 5 is rear shots only, from close up.

Bolo, 

why all the hate on players driving an OP tank? If it's out there, drive it. Sheesh. Blame the game, not the playa.
