I've just bought binoculars for my Loewe and they works quite well as I started receiving more points for detecting opponent tanks. I've earned about 350k credits today but I spent some of them on the optics so I have about 275k available. When I save 800k, I will sell my KV-3 and buy the IS. If I had not bought the optics, I would have been able to buy the IS today.
better should have bought coated optics - they work even while you move and the max view range is 500 anyway - with coated optics the Löwe gets exactly 500
Seems as if i'm in the extreme minority of MP.net light tankers.
Used my PzKpfw II on Himmeldorf for the first time, standard parts mostly. Lasted a good minute against a Leichttraktor and a BT-2, the former of which I managed to destroy and the latter damaged enough that a friend came by and sweeped past him. After some bad experiences with a 30mm chaingun on the Leichttraktor (might as well have been an MG42 carrier), I nearly swore off vehicles and upgrades that included such weaponry; glad my mind was changed. Had some spare change, so I just upgraded to the longer Flak 38 L/112. Should be interesting.
Still quite a ways off of the 4100 research points needed for the FuG 8 radio and gold status for my PzKpfw 35(t).
In the mean time you guys can think about these things if we are to make a clan:
-Name (Required, Max 70 characters) Blood Diamond Pants
-Tag (Required, 2 to 5 Latin characters, numerals, underscores and hyphens.) BDP
-Motto (Required, Max 100 characters) PKM is the best
-Description (Max 1 000 characters) Mpnets finest
Yeah I was gonna say the Coated Optics would have been the best bet for the Lowe. Thing I hate with the Lowe is if you bounce they usually get two shots on you before you reload and the damn thing is too slow to back up lol. BUT I had to go afk once, that turned out to be the whole game. Came back and my clan mate asked what I'd gotten for xp and creds... 495xp and 50K credits for absolutely nothing. No one came to our base, no hits from arty, nothing. :P
Also I bounced a shot off the rear of a T-54 within 20 meters... wasn't happy about that (aimed nice and flat spot)... damn cheery picked T-54 stats...
