Supertest: FV1066 Senlac – Premium British Light Tank

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?

  1. 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.
  2. 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).
  3. 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.

  1. Definitely interested in this tank. On the other hand, this means that a British light line is in the works, and since a future British light line will probably largely consist of wheeled vehicles, this is sort of bad news for me since I hate the wheelchairs with a passion.

    1. So because a non-wheeled light tank goes on SuperTest, you expect there to come wheeled lights? Strange logic

      1. The thing is that historically there have been very few British tanks featuring tracks that can be considered light tanks (which is why we have not seen a British light line so far), while there have been plenty of wheeled tanks, such as, for instance, the AEC or the Dingo. This went on why into post-war times with well-known tanks such as the Saladin. In short: Hardly any British light tanks on tracks, plenty on wheels.
        Enough logic for you?

    2. Since it is just an assumption – no worries – drink some tea and lets wait for further announcments.

  2. This honestly looks very underpowered. Its got worse gun stats than the other lights and has nothing really that special.

    1. Did you read the article? “This also confirms rumours of a brand new Light Tank branch for the British tech tree will be coming in 2019.”

      1. Is that actually confirmed or just a guess?

        I would’ve expected the SU-130PM to confirm a Soviet turreted TD line coming soon, but so far that hasn’t happened.

  3. Damn I was really hoping for a wheeled light line in the Brit TT but hey I’ll take whatever they give me in the British line.

    1. it does take them a while to catch on to the players wants and needs as well as the latest trends. I mean it took about 7 months for the obj 268v4 to be nerfed and its taken nearly 3 years for wargaming to catch on that we don’t want OP prem tanks, and that all the IS4 drivers want their tank buffed (me included 🙁 )

  4. In which world this trash would be acceptable`?
    Why not get 130 or scrop instead and have twice the value Oo

  5. With those HE rounds, my first thought was “Stick it to the French wheelies”. If it lives up to that, might even buy my 1st prem tank in over a year
