Sweden came up with another vehicle full of surprises. This time, it's the Lansen C. It might look like your standard medium tank with average armament, average armour, and average mobility. But oh, boy! You'll be in for a treat!

Gameplay

Let's start off with one of the most defining characteristics of a tank: the armour. The one of the Lansen C definitely doesn't shine, as the thickness of this tank is below average. The favourable angles will result in one or two lucky bounces though. The turret is also easy to penetrate, apart from the gun mantlet. Luckily, the gun depression angle is excellent. Thanks to this feature, you can hide most of your vehicle, so terrain will be your best friend.

What you wouldn't expect from a Swedish vehicle is superb mobility. Sure, the top speed might not look like much but check out its amazing power-to-weight ratio. This propels the Lansen C to speed almost in an instant, so going from A to B will be a piece of cake. The view range is alright and can be enhanced with equipment.

Aside from the mobility, what sets the Lansen C apart from most other medium tanks is its 105 mm gun. As expected, a weapon of such calibre features high damage per shot, yet the reload time isn't too bad. Combining both traits results in one of the highest DPM values of all Tier VIII medium tanks. The accuracy and aiming time are both okay, but you'll be most effective at close to mid-range.

In short, use your mobility to get to the best spots first. Hide behind terrain, only show your turret, and trade shots with other medium tanks first before you take on heavier vehicles from their side.

Equipment

Hover your cursor over the images for more information on each piece of equipment.

You have two main options to go for: one is the Improved Ventilation if you prefer a boost to a variety of vehicle characteristics; the other is Coated Optics for a higher view range and more assisted damage on average.  Both the Tank Gun Rammer and the Vertical Stabiliser are aimed to improve your gun reload time and stabilisation, resulting in more potential damage.

Even though the Lansen C is not your typical medium tank, the usual crew skills and perks still apply. So, of course, go for Repair first, to get destroyed tracks fixed as quickly as possible.

Later, Brothers in Arms will give you the same bonus as the always useful Improved Ventilation.
