This is one of the scout tanks. In theory it must be one of the best scouts due to its good stats, but on practice everything is different. Armor and cannon are good, but these stats are not important for scouts. Also, unlike other scouts, it is unprofitable. The bottomline: there is no point to research it, because it is an unprofitable weak scout.
Cons – expensive repair and ammo. Pros – good armor and cannon (compared to other light tanks).
