War Thunder M41

Basically, the T49 was a prototype M41 Walker Bulldog with a 90mm gun (crew of 4). In the late 40′s and early 50′s, it was recognized that a 76mm gun is no longer enough to combat modern Soviet medium tanks, specifically the T-54. They definitely aren't bad. (BR 1.0–2.3) you have mostly light tanks, which trade armor for mobility, and their cannon is still effective. You also have the Locust, which, in good hands, can be effectively used even in tier VII battles, or Stuarts. Interested in purchasing something from the War Thunder Store?

General history

War Thunder M41

Designed in 1949 the M41 Walker Bulldog was developed for armed reconnaissance and was marketed successfully to the US army as a replacement for the aging M24 Chaffee , the M41 received the designation Little bulldog but it was later changed to Walker Bulldog after General Walton Walker died from a jeep accident.

The M41 was the first postwar US light tank to see worldwide service some were even exported to asia.

(e.g Japan)

The development of the M41 was slow until the outbreak of the Korean war, when the US demanded for more tank it was rushed into production , which led to some technical problems , adding up with cramped environment of the tank, it was given somewhat mediocre reputation among US tanker. The M41 was considered too large in comparison to the M24 for reconnaissance use.

Funding for the M41 program was slashed, and more focused on the M47 instead.

It production came in a halt in late 1954, and not in US service long before being replaced by the M551 Sheridan during the 1960s.


The M41A1 has very good mobility and low silhouette, making it a good flanker, it gun reload very quickly for it BR and APDS shell can pen the upper front plate of panther with ease.

War Thunder M41a1 Review

Good turret traverse speed.

Nice reverse speed, so you can withdraw quickly after shot.


It's armor is not thick enough it can still be killed by SPAA easily, ammo rack is located at the front, it have first-stage ammo so you have to pause so that you will not suffer from reload penalty.

4 crew member it can be one shot very easily.

Only use solid shot only.


Scouting mechanic can be used as a rangefinder if you use the minimap some info about here:http://aminoapps.com/p/0ygctt

Use you mobility to flank and get to the enemy side.

Acronis true image 21 salon. Aim to the left of the turret (right from your side) that where gunner is usually at.

Either flank or ignore Tiger II when stock.

Find a good place to scout or snipe.

Use APDS against front amror use AP for side shot.

Overall thought

The M41A1 is a good tank when played carefully. It will be more fun when you unlock the APDS.

(Above stats is RB)

The American M46 Patton and M47 Patton II tanks are greatly respected among players in high-ranked War Thunder battles. These powerful vehicles stand out for their flexibility and utility: their good vertical aiming angles, solid frontal armour and an excellent chassis allow them to adapt for any conditions and complete any task.
Very soon, the list of these wonderful machines will be bolstered by an additional one: the developer team has finished working on the M48A1 Patton III.​
The second Patton model, the M47, was initially designed as an intermediary point in the series, so before even finishing its development, General Motors began to design a new vehicle with an improved 90mm cannon. The project was designated T48, and subsequently became the M48. The prototype was a development of the M46 and M47 ideals; it received a 90mm M41 cannon with an ammunition complement of 60 shots and improved armour. A version with a rotating machine gun turret with large-caliber M2HB received the series designation M48A1.
The first series-produced M48 left the factory in 1952, and were deployed only in 1953. The M48A1 modification was, in short, developed even later. This meant that the Patton III was unable to participate in the Korean War. However, the tank’s service record is rich in other combat episodes: the vehicle was used during the wars and conflicts in Indochina, in the Middle East and in North Africa. It was used in numerous battles from the mid-1960s to the present day. The last M48 was assembled in 1960.
What awaits the M48 in War Thunder? First of all, this tank logically links up the M46 and M47 line with the M60: moving from the Pattons to the top vehicle will be a more fluid process. Secondly, the M48 will strengthen the American side in high-ranked tank and mixed battles, becoming a valued ally in the fight against any opponent from other nations.
The frontal armour plates of the Patton are set at a good angle, which makes the tank more resistant to hits from armour-piercing, APCR and HE shells. Its 90mm cannon has wonderful ballistic characteristics and among all its contemporaries, it is inferior in destructive force only to the Soviet D-10T. Finally, the tank’s maneuverability in combination with its other characteristics allows it to impose its strategy against the opponent and adapt for any situation that emerges during battle.
