The M41 Walker Bulldog is a tier 1 Light Tank originating from the United States. It is sold by Sophie Wölfli and leads to the M48A3, T92 LT, and LAV-150.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
  • Magazine loader: allows you to fire several rounds without reloading.

Player recommendations[edit | edit source]

Featuring a powerful eleven round clip and strong acceleration and mobility, the M41 is the first example of a fast, mobile, and powerful light tank in Armored Warfare. The downsides to this vehicle include its armor, which is just about nonexistent, and its long reload in between magazines. This vehicle is best played as a quick and dirty brawler, focusing on overwhelming firepower in a short amount of time.

Pros and cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Good mobility
  • Excellent gun depression
  • High burst damage
  • Access to HEAT makes it a very good flanker

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Negligible armor
  • High clip reload

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

Upgrading the firepower through the improved rangefinder and improved ammunition makes the large burst capability of the M41 even more devastating. Another upgrade which should be considered early on is the AOS-895-5 Petrol Engine, which heavily improves top speed and acceleration.

Retrofit suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Electro-Optical Absorbing Paint
  • Advanced Fire Control
  • Improved Telescopic Lens
  • Improved Gun Breech

Commander and crew skill suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Sabrina Washington, for vision range, camo, and accuracy improvements
  • Driver: Smooth Ride, Off-Road Driving
  • Gunner: Quick Draw, Sharpshooter
  • Loader: Rapid Fire, Explosive Shells/Preparation

History[edit | edit source]

Designed by the United States, the M41 was built to replace the M24 Chaffee as a superior light tank, adept at scouting but possessed of a more powerful armament. It was only in service from 1953 through the late 1960’s in the US Army, though many other countries continue to use modified versions of the vehicle. When operated by the United States, the M41 saw combat in Northeast and Southeast Asia.
