WoT Supertest: BT-42

The BT-42ย is not a typical representation of the German light tanks. Its main features are a 114 mm gun that deals high damage of 370 HP per shot and with a relatively short reload time of 9.3 s. Its standard shell penetrates 105 mm of armor, while the penetration of its special APCR shell is 125 mm. These advantages are balanced with its gun dispersion, which is 0.55 m. The view range of 360 m is similar to that of many other light tanks at this tier. The frontal hull armor is 20mm, top speed is 52 km/h, and specific power is 33.3 hp/t. The vehicle’s durability is 590 HP. The high damage per shot combined with good mobility and short reload time provide new tactical capabilities that, if used properly, will help you not only be the eyes of the team, but also its damage dealer.

  1. Ah so 3rd campaign is coming, would be only logical with announced russian heavy tier X and nerf of 279

    1. Finnish TT would be nice but quite a mess, chancing from lights to meds/td’s and only 2 heavies on tier 5&6 with only one tier 8, ISU-152. And top tier missing, or maybe buffed T-55 as tier X

  2. they should make it a swedish tank instead of german, as it’s the finnish that made it and the only other scandinavian country in WoT is Sweden

    1. A Swedish BT-42 would seem a bit more odd to me. At least Finns and Germans were brothers in arms 2/3 of the war. I’d still prefer a Finnish TT with only premiums if necessary (as in the European WoWp TT) with all the bought German and captured Soviet tanks.

    2. first, finland ain’t scandinavian. second, sweden was neutral towards finland at best, unlike germany. read some history.

  3. Everything about this Great, But change the standard round to AP instead of HEAT. There plenty of high caliber with AP in this tier and it would be fair sense everyone else can auto pen this tank. Everything else on the tank is great shell pen, speed, and damage. The Mobility is prefect, Survivability balance the tank, and the Spotting is just like the other lights. The only thing that we don’t know is the Concealment and the Dispersion factors. NOW where is my GIRL UND PANZER BUNLDE!!!

    1. Anything but HE ammo seems wrong for the gun, historically and technically. It uses a British 4.5″ howitzer after all.

      1. The Finnish manufactured some HEAT rounds for the gun domestically in an effort to provide some AT capability, but they proved extremely unreliable and essentially worthless.Whether the British ever had an AP round for the gun, I don’t know, but the Finnish did not buy any either way when procuring the guns.

  4. Derp guns lol
    This isn’t 2019 anymore.
    Using HE and getting 3 HP damage isn’t fun anymore

    Already copy and paste tank three times

  6. So, they’re giving the OP German LT tank line, a tank with ANOTHER FRIKKEN DERP GUN?
    Yah, great job WGing. There’s a reason I quit paying, I mean playing the game. ๐Ÿ™„
    Though I have to admit, I raised chasing down and killing Luchsโ˜ ๏ธ in my Stuart to an artform. Killing these, a tier higher, would be sweet. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  7. Finnish but since finland and germany kinda were allies vs soviet invasion this make some sense
