World of Tanks Supertest will soon receive a brand new British Tier VIII Premium light tank: FV1066 Senlac. This also confirms rumours of a brand new Light Tank branch for the British tech tree will be coming in 2019. What’s so special about this vehicle?
- The turret of this vehicle is at the rear, yet it’s a well-rounded light tank with a top forward speed of 65 km/h and a top reverse speed of 23 km/h.
- The Senlac’s gun has good armour penetration (189 mm with a basic round), small aiming time (1.8 seconds), and decent stabilization. Still, this tank cannot excel as a sniper because of low accuracy (the dispersion is 0.42 m at 100 meters’ distance).
- The Senlac’s HE shells deal 280 points of damage. They have 90 mm of armour penetration, making the Brit a real scourge of enemy vehicles with thin armour. The HE shells fired by the Senlac travel at the same speed as basic rounds (1020 meters per second) which means they are way faster than HE shells of other tanks.
Gameplay-wise, the Senlac is much like the HWK 30. At the beginning of a battle, you can act as an effective active spotter. By the battle’s end, you can get more aggressive. The Senlac has a crew of three.
