I think one of the reasons many think American tanks are not as good as others is because they are tiered badly.  Most evident with the M5 Stuart!  When matched against other tier 4's, the gun does very little damage very poor traverse speed.  I understand it is built for speed and scouting, but it is no match with other tier 4's.  And it even gets worse when it matches you against tier 5's, which I find happens 60 to 70 percent of the time.  It really should not be a tier 4.  
​Does anyone have any thoughts?

Not every tank is made to go face to face with the reds. If you play the tank to its roll the M5 is fine.

Rest in Peace CJ.  You will be missed.

I loved the m5 stuart. 56 pen was a little iffy, but what you CAN penetrate you will burn down much faster than a luchs can.

 

 

37mm autoloader pumps out 200 dmg a clip, with like a 5 second reload. Much more DPM than the luchs, and 500 more than the Chinese m5a1.


Hans, get the Luger.

That being said, I have a much higher wr in the Chinese variant for some reason.

The only problem with the Stuart is pen. In other respects it is fine. Also, I completely disagree with your notion that American tanks are below average.

 You have to practice with the autoloader. You need to dump the whole clip and run. This tank can do some damage. It is a great permatracker. Reset the camo often and abuse the gun depression. I usually divide the ammo by 5s and think of it as clips. Mostly AP with at least 3 clips of APCR but don't be afraid to carry 5, especially once you start getting bottom tiered. It can tear up soft side sided TDs with HE just aim at the gun compartment. Also abuse that gun depression. It has 10 degrees. Roll back reset the camo, roll up and dump a clip. Plus this tank earns credits. One of my favorite tanks in the game. Give it some some time. You could try running it with the M5 turret and the top gun. I would be happy to platoon Stuarts with you some time. Good luck.

I am running both right now. I Chinese Stuart is faster, the gun has higher pen and better alpha, and even though it is M5A1 turret the armor profile is the same as the M turret on the US Stuart. I prefer the US Stuart but I love the autoloader. They are both really good light tanks at this tier.

I always loved it until the made it a 3 shell clip w/ 7 second reload and didn’t even up the caliber or damage

Tanks in my garage: t110e5, t28 prototype,PZ V/IV, t34-85 Rudy, Su 122 44, y5 t-34, y5 firefly, its not as sad!
