As a new player to blitz, light tanks have a certain appeal. No other tanks in the game are quite as fast and nimble as a light tank. They have a fun factor that is hard to compete with. The problem is that they are often times the least forgiving of all of the classes and many new players find themselves struggling to get wins and support the team. 

 

This guide is designed to help you you know what you should be doing in a light tank and what situations to put yourself in to get the best results. So if you are a new tanker or often find yourself on the losing side when driving a light tank, this guides for you. 

 

 

Hope this helps you in your light tanking endeavors!

I agree. Light tanks are probably the hardest class to play, but when you get it, they are the best. I think it's a blend of low hp pool, poor armor, and lack of armor that makes them hard to use.

Thank you.  

I had been having issues with my RU.  Watched this and realized some of the mistakes I have been making.  Spots are holding, but have doubled may avg damage and kills.  And survival is significantly higher.

Happy to help. I encourage everyone to watch the replays of their losses as well. Often times you will see what you could’ve done differently and it will change how you approach your games.

Usually right after I have started to make a move, I realize that I probably should not have done that.  But my brain is catching up to my fingers.  Just got back to blue.

N00b sez: Comparing different units, imagining doing Scout with Lvl VIII light and came up with this:
