Although its history appears to be grandiose, it is also a controversial tank... maybe a bit too much for blitz...

ok, it's got good speed (fastest in WW2 as a matter of fact) and is rather stealthy, but that's it (for now)

it's got also a hell lot of handicaps: poor traverse speed (you can't do anything about it... i guess it's because turreted TDs in general have no hydraulic drives and its purely flesh against metal hence the poor traverse speed) and yet that's not too much of a problem. what's really annoying though (and please if you see this, the devs or whoever is in charge of that) PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! CHANGE ITS ROF, 4.93 shells a minute isn't enough compared to the jackson (6 something). an IS6 shoots 122mm shells faster than that. in fact an SU-85 could beat you in it. now i don't play WoT on PC, but i've checked the details for both the m36 and the m18 on their tankopedia and they are very similar to one another. For now you're stuck sniping on top of hills on a turreted tank... doesn't work out

 

please people, post your thoughts here, let's see what you think of it

Aside from the tier 1 level armour (or lack thereof) and the crappy trav, it's nice and fast. Will be a real stinker when the ROF gets fixed. It's like a Light Tank with a boomstick.

They've fixed the ROF, it's an awesome tank with great speed, a great gun!  I've been killed in my IS-3 by a Hellcat because it flanked me!

Yeah currently zipping around in this feline ferocity.   Apt name.  Trick is to get into camo and blast away.  Very very effective as a sniper.  Also cos it has speed to get away when all else fails.

Yep, fast enough to run from the big boys and draw if desperate

My wild feline killed a Tier VIII IS-3 before...was that you?

Think this TD is the fastest Mastery that I've obtained.

Which gun do you all prefer on the Hellcat? The fast one or the big one?

Most definitely the big one for me.

Ah! Just bought my Hellcat today! Can somebody tell me how to play this thing like a wildfire?

 

I am very impressed with this tank already and my first match in stock ended up with me finishing with 5 kills! :justwait:

gun the engine to your first snipe spot , stay in cover. Shoot! Then scoot to next spot. Rinse and repeat till no more red dots. Its a good fast thing but fragile, don t get caught in the open. One HE rd and boom you re gone.

Yeah, I have a hellcat and if I'm honest, Its easier to turn the turret with the hull rather than hand crank it. Thanks for the play style guide thing, Im going to start playing using it.
