The T-92 LT is a tier 2 Light Tank originating from the United States, and is sold by Marat Shishkin. It can be unlocked from the PT-85 and leads to the FV101 Scorpion and FV4201 Chieftain Mk. 2.

Features

  • Invisible movement: motion does not reduce camouflage factor.
  • Designated target: vehicle has the ability to designate targets that are within line of sight and vision range. Designated targets are called out and takes increased damage.
  • HESH: can even penetrate armor with large hit angles.
  • Smoke generators: generate a smoke screen around the vehicle.

Player Recommendations

With high mobility and an excellent rate of fire, the T92 LT is a very powerful light tank. The downside of this vehicle is its armor, where even light autocannon fire can easily penetrate it. This means that to survive, it relies on its mobility and camo rating to get around the flanks of heavily armored targets and riddle them with 76mm cannon shells.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • High rate of fire
  • Excellent camouflage rating
  • Very good mobility

Cons

  • Negligible armor

Upgrade Suggestions

As there are not many other systems with a significant number of upgrades, improving the firepower on the already excellent 76mm cannon should be the primary focus.

Retrofit Suggestions

  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Augmented Optics
  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Improved Pioneer Tool Kit

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions

  • Commander: Juan Carlos, to improve the aim speed and crew stats
  • Driver: Spin to Win, Off-Road Driving
  • Gunner: Sharpshooter, Do the Twist
  • Loader: Rapid Fire, Explosive Shells/Preparation

History

Class: Light Tank (Prototype)
Developed: 1952-1958
Service: N/A
Vehicles Built: 2
Operators: N/A

The T92 Light Tank was developed in the 1950s by Aircraft Armaments, Inc. to replace the M41 Walker Bulldog. It was actually one of three designs to attempt to do so, the other two being the T71 Light Tank variants by Detroit Arsenal and General Motors. For its time, it was a very futuristic design with a cleft turret (separating the gunner from the commander by the body of the gun). The welded steel hull armor was naturally quite thin and some parts were even made from military-grade aluminum, but thanks to its design and a lot of armor sloping, it effectively offered the same protection as the armor of the M41 Walker Bulldog.

For the time the vehicle was developed in, the firepower was adequate. The vehicle was armed with a 76mm gun with semi-automatic loading. The gun was actually nearly identical firepower-wise to the M41 Walker Bulldog gun. Its effective rate of fire was 12 rounds per minute but the gun was not stabilized, which limited the possibility of accurate fire on the move. The mobility of the vehicle was also excellent thanks to its 340hp Continental engine and 18.5 tons of weight.

The vehicle proposal was well-liked and was approved in March 1954 under the designation 76mm Gun Tank T92. Two T92 prototypes were ordered by the military and the first was delivered to the Aberdeen Proving Grounds in 1956 with the second following in 1957. The Aberdeen testing resulted in a number of modification proposals as well as in the order of two more vehicles by 1958. Unfortunately, the situation had changed in 1957 as the U.S. Congress learned of the Soviet amphibious PT-76 light tank. This resulted in a request to make the American light tanks amphibious as well but the T92 could not be modified that way, resulting in its cancellation by 1958.
