CMR 1/72 Buccaneer Mk However, it's still best to equip Optics (or even Binocs since this tank often stays stationary in thick bushes, like a sniper would) in case you don't have allies to spot for you, as the base view range is quite good for its tier. As a result of the strong armor, it is possible to close to short range with the enemy tanks without being seriously damaged by the hits.
