Tank T71 Guide World of Tanks

Video review Guide tank T71 World of Tanks

Light tank T71 - an experimental American seventh level, referring, as the name implies, to the class of light tanks . Thanks to its remarkable driving characteristics, good viewing radius and a fairly powerful drum gun, it is probably one of the best light tanks in the game.

Initially, the tank belonged to light tanks of level 6, but by patch 0.8.2 it was moved to level 7.


The crew of the T71 tank includes the Commander (he is both the Charger and the Radio Operator), the driver-mechanic and the Gunner (also acting as the Charger).

Specifications T71

The main advantages of the T 71 tank are its excellent driving performance, more precisely the successful combination of speed (64 km / h) and maneuverability (56 g / s), which allows it not only to quickly enlighten the necessary territory, but also to maneuver during the departure from the shelling.

Thanks to the powerful drum gun of the 76 mm Gun T185 (damage - 150/150/185), which has good penetrability (175/220/38) and a high rate of fire (rate of fire - 11.25, speed information - 2.3 s) represents a greater threat to poorly armored vehicles. Also, this gun is characterized by good accuracy - with a skillfully pumped carriage and a patched player, it hits almost without a miss (0.39 m / 100m).

A tower with a better overview (400 m) allows you to light the enemy equipment on time and transfer the necessary information (communication range - 745) to your arte.

Tank weaknesses

In principle, this tank has all the disadvantages of its class - it is a weak reservation, especially at the stern of the hull and the low level of strength (CP).

The best option - turning circles in the vicinity of the enemy base and the possible locations of the enemy. When firing it is recommended to retreat, while using the tank's maneuverability.
  • Passive firefly - for those who are too lazy to travel a lot and constantly dodge enemy shots, this option is recommended. Do not forget about the masking of the tank and shelter in the form of buildings and hills.
  • Tank support - T71 can easily cope with the tasks of the CT , namely, to fight in the composition of the link of medium tanks. The main goals are the arta and the easyball of the enemy, who will get well after your shots. However, again, do not forget about your driving performance and take advantage of your speed and maneuver.
  • The liquidator of the light - after waiting for the calculated positions (appears with the experience and advice of the team) the appearance of the enemy, you can easily knock him out, thereby depriving the enemy's eye art. Otherwise, you can arrange a good chase for him if you do not forget to install additional equipment (see below).
