In this video, I discuss the capabilities of the M8A1, a tier 4 American Tank Destroyer, in a tier 6 battle in World of Tanks (WoT). The M8A1 is a mobile glass cannon that can snipe from great distances with an accurate gun.
Tank specs and statistics:
- Crew level: 86-87% training level
- Gun: 57 mm Gun M1 L/50
- Equipment: Camouflage Net and Tank Gun Rammer for the the camouflage and loading bonuses
- No premium account, gold spent, gold ammo, or consumables
Let me know your questions and feedback.
P.S. After a brief and disappointing experience with Age of Wushu just over a week ago, I installed WoT on a whim. That turned out to be a great decision, as WoT is a gem of a F2P game! I’m extremely impressed with the tactical nature of WoT teamplay and the rich design of the tanks and battle mechanics. I’d heard a while back that WoT is “pay-to-win” (which is part of the reason I never tried it until now) so I’ve been playing without a premium account and without buying gold, to see whether a noob player can compete against other opponents who have better crews, equipment, and possibly gold ammo.
