Dear all,


 I've been credit grinding the Lowe, and I've seen numerous t49's running around, which look like a blast to play. That being said, I'm definitely going to be abandoning my WZ-121 grind temporarily to try to pick up this mobile derp. So:

1. I'm at the M5 Stuart right now, but I'd like to know which gun I should use when I reach the T37- the single shot, or the autoloader?

2. Same with the M41 bulldog, I know it got buffed a few patches ago, but anyways- single shot, or autoloader?

3. Finally, is the T49 still worth it in the current meta? I know it got a pretty big nerf, but how does it fare currently? 

Don't be a hater;


I'm still recovering from my days as a tater

1. Absolutely auto

2. Absolutely auto

3. Not really competitive IMO but if you play it decently it is a pest. Also a blast to drive like you said.

The rrason you see so many right now is because of the influx of CDCs. Large targets for 49 drivers to shoot at to amass easy damage. The hard part is it can be downright frustrating when you track or miss several shots in the same game.

I prefer the single shot on both tanks. However, I have faced reds with auto-loaders that have surprised me with the burst of alpha so I have been thinking of trying it out. . . but I don't like to take a hit to ROF or DPM. . . 


The T49 is super fun and worth it. However, it is expensive to drive. Unless you land and pen every shot, you will lose credits, potentially many credits. Be prepared for that. Still, it is worth it. It's like driving a KV2 that is super fast with light tank camo ratings. You can show up anywhere with a giant derp gun, which makes it unique in the game. High pen HE tanks outside of TDs are rare (British tier 9/10 tanks, RU 251). They are a lot of fun particularly once you have a strong grasp of the mechanics of HE.

T37 = Autoloader

M41 = Fast pew pew


T49 is fun to play but also very punishing at times; if you don’t put your shot in and get out quick, red’s dpm will severely punish you.

I ran the single shot on the T37 but I think that the autoloader would be a better option. I thoroughly recommend the autoloader on the bulldog because the tank is fast enough to do 480 damage, run away and then come back when it is reloaded. As for the T49...it's fun at times...other times it makes you want to sell it and quit the game.

In MINE opnion... i prefer on the T37 the autoloader, it has decent penetration, you can use quicky your 3 shots and get a cover to reload, but in the M41 Bulldog i prefer so much the M32/late gun, because it has more penetration and a 75mm 3 shot-autoloader is not enough for tier 7, so.. wargaming we need bulldog with 4 shot-autoloader!

First, I do prefer the three shot clip of the T37. 300+ damage per clip but needs a vulnerable 10 seconds to reload.


 For the M41, I love the 4.1 second reload of the one shot. It amazing


I have been a very long T49 driver. I love the tank and it will give plenty of credits if you shoot shots that guarantee  hits. I have over 1k battles in the tank and half of those battles I run behind enemy tanks and make them rage. I also hide in bushes to punish the ligh tanks that show up. But most of the time I am going in, fireing a shot at point blank range, and getting out fast.

What I'm about to say has been said but here I go 

on the t37 and m41 i like the one shot gun for its dpm 

on the t49 it's all  about the 152mm gun it is expensive BUT it is so much fun flying around the map doing 450-600 damage per shot is the most fun I have had in any tank i have ever played

The only way to truly win a battle is with American muscle

I can't speak for the T-49 just haven't played it. The only gun for the 41 is the late model M32 76. APCR standard and the HEAT round can be effective. Also the auto-loader loses two degrees of gun depression dropping to 8.  On the T-37 I prefer the single shot over the auto-loader however if you want to practice the play style of the T69 then you can swap out the auto-loader. It has the same 16 second reload, the same 2.5 seconds between rounds, and the same 9 degrees of gun depression. It is a lot easier getting the peek-a-boo and run style down solid in tier 6 then trying to learn it at tier 8. And then when you get to tier 8 you will more fully appreciate the reduced aim time, and dispersion.

1. Auto loader for the T37 makes the tank WAY more fun; yes the 2.5 sec reload for the next shot is kinda annoying but it deals lots of burst damage.

2. M32 late(single shot) because U need all the Pen U can get on that tank; it also has great DPM.

3. Yes the T49 is way past worth the grind, it is so much fun. Run Calibrated Shells on it cause the Pen is low; it also uses SO many creds
