Tips on using the XM-1(GM)

Hi! So recently i have been trying to put my Xm-1(GM) into good use to grind out a few tanks in the us ground tree but ive been struggling a bit with it, so can anyone give me tips on how to use it correctly and get better at using it?

Also i dont have premium account rn and im not willing to buy it.

Flank is my go to advice for basically all vehicles.

The XM-1 is a relic of the past. It’s armor is nonexistent. If you want to “perform” with the Xm-1 you need to value your life and play like a light tank. Most enemies WILL out-reload you so your main tool for survival will be your speed. As the other guy said you need to flank with the Xm-1, embrace your inner rat and recite the survival onion to yourself over and over again. It’s a really good sniper with it’s thermals and range finder, but it is in no way a hull down tank. Constantly be moving even when sniping and change positions so you don’t get revenge CAS’ed.

Good Luck my brother and happy grinding hope this helps somewhat lol

XM-1 GM is stuck in a bad position in the current matchmaker, 9.3 means getting uptiered to fight 10.0 Russia/10.3 Germany in most matches. Your armor is unusable even in a full downtier, most tanks will have better shells than you. The only advice I can offer is to not be seen. Pretend you are a 50 ton M18 Hellcat, because someone will somehow sneak 30mm AP through your non-volumetric turret ring and kill you

Again, as Duckywinner_ said, play like a LT.
