It's always handy to keep a little bit of each type of ammunition available in each of your tanks.  Look below, and whichever way the dial is pointing, either towards Armor-Piercing (AP) or High-Explosive (HE incl. HEAT), is the type of ammo you should over-load.

Which crew SKILLS & PERKS should I take?…

One of either a  Small Repair Kit or a Large Repair Kit is virtually always needed on every tank.

Repair Kit*

A Small or Large First Aid Kit is almost always recommended on ALL of your tanks in World of Tanks.  Oil or Gasoline are often used on light tanks, but typically at the expense of the Fire Extinguisher (go for the automatic version whenever possible)

Camo is a much needed skill for every tank - but doubly so for light tanks, scouts, tank destroyers and mediumsRepair is a handy skill for every tank, but especially heavies, and mediums.Sixth Sense is the most useful skill for every tank's commander - always take it first.The Mentor skill is virtually useless.  Use it only when you want to train crew members as fast as possible.Remember, Brothers in Arms only works if EVERY crew member in your tank has it!One of the better skills - take itOff-Road Driving increases every tank's speed in certain conditions - and speed wins battles - so take it.Adrenaline Rush is only useful in rare occasions when you're about to die - so what's the point?Call For Vengeance is another in a long line of useless crew-skills & perksCome play Mechwarrior Online with me!This tank's global win-rate is...:

Many people believe that the Ru 251 is the best light tank in World of Tanks.  Personally, I prefer the M41 Walker Bulldog or the T54 Lightweight, but I can see why so many tankers love the Ru251.

The Ru plays much like a medium tank.  It’s got better armor than your typical light tank, so it will bounce more than the occasional shot, allowing you to get right up close to the action.  

But, the added armour doesn’t make the Ru251 slow - not at all!  With a top speed of 80km/h, the Ru251 is one of the fastest tanks in WoT!  Although, it does take a while to get there.  And, it’s even got pretty decent maneuverability, allowing you to pivot and circle enemy tanks.  But, even with great speed and turning, the Ru251 isn’t the most agile beast out there (if it was, it would be utterly dominant).  The MT-25 or the M41 Walker Bulldog (or even the French lights) feel slightly more agile and maneuverable.

The Ru251’s top gun boasts great penetration and damage, and is probably the best non-auto-loading gun on any of the light tanks.

Experts will probably prefer the Walker Bulldog, but for everyone else, the Ru 251 is the best light tank in World of Tanks!
