autoloaders in highly organized battles still win out.

Any tank will back away from the ISU-152 with the BL-10.

IS3 hands down,
lorraines (panther IIs are also paper but with worse guns)
ISU with OP10
GW panther,
one light tank that knows how to scout, 13 90 or T-50-2.

IS3 + Lorraine.

Don't use TDs in company, they're not flexible enough. T28 can be useful to hold a flank alone on some maps, but it's overal not worth it.

A good tiger 2 will own a is3 any day...but due to wgs love for russian 0 crit hits the is3 probaly win in a brawl.

Lorri = best med ever the dps it puts out can solo any tier 8 heavy.

Personaly id say the proto is the best TD compared to the isu...not many have it so its not gonna be voted any good but the turret is very very usefull as a td trust me...and the isu has next to no armour with a long ass reload, the proto can at least hold a flank, JUST DAM SLOW!  :lol:

Gwpanther...most acc out of tier 6 and most nimble to easy to get around and hit where it hurts.

amx 90 should be better its 2 tiers above the other scouts, which gives it the much needed favoured spot.

however if the amx wasnt an options the VK its by far the best, the 105mm can deal damage anyone.

hmm i think it's not a matter of which one is best, but more which combination  is best. For example: a strike force of 4x IS-3 with 2x AMX 50 100 to flank is very effective, just like having 2x GWP and 1x S-51, hard hitting one and 2 faster firing ones which can easily relocate

This is outrageous.
The most OP tanks are missing: Type 59 & T34, where the type is the best medium for companies without a doubt.

Ferdinand wins anytime anywhere.

And VK2601 in skilled hands is the most deadly light tank

Tiger 2 - I just fear it more than an IS-3 in randoms, so it seems like a better option.
Pershing - fast, versatile and has great viewrange, can be used as a slow scout that can also deal damage (everyone tries to kill Lorries ASAP, so they aren't nearly as useful, whereas a Pershing is likely to be ignored a bit more).
Ferdi and ISU - Very hard choice, as ISU has the ridiculous BL10, but isn't as reliable and is MUCH more fragile. A Ferdi doesn't pack such a huge punch, but in a proper position it can actually wreck just as much havoc.
GW Panther - hands down the best option for tier 8, SU-14 and S-51 are arties more useful against tier 9-10 due to their huge alpha, but in tier 8 they are just too slow to deal with faster targets.
T-50-2 - simply the best scout out there anyway, I've actually seen T-50-2s taking out Tigers, which is absolutely ridiculous :D

Heavy: T32
A well driven T32, with a map to suit it, can do very good in company battles.

Med: Lorraine40t

TD: ISU, just because of the fear factor of the GREAT and POWERFUL BL-10 (although I have seen Ferdi rock in t8 Company battles!)

Arty: S-51 /GW Panther, take both with you and it's the perfect combo.

Light: T-50-2 / AMX 13 90, tough choice, depends what you want the Light to do..

I have seen a lot of Type59 in its Heyday in Companies, and in my opinion, I'd take any T8 (except T-44) over it.
