the is 8 is a fast maneuvrable tank that has poor armor, but it is a good tank even when stock

the e75 has great armor, but it isn't as good when stock, it becomes fun you gett he 128mm gun

dunno much about the st1 but since it is very similar tot he is 4 I wouldn't go to it since the si 4 was a pain in the ass as a stock tank

Why am I talking how the tanks are stock ? Cause you need more than a hundred battles to get them elite and having a tank that sucks when stock is extremely frustrating at least for me

But it all comes down to this. Which tier 10 do you want ? The fast is 7 ? The german monster E 100 ? Or the newly asigned russian tier 10 IS 4 ?

ive killed more IS8's and ST-1's already E75's are just too hard to kill, i rarely cause damage to them regardless where i hit them and with whatever gun i use, ive never played or owned either but from what ive seen the IS8 is a very fast heavy with a mean gun, the E75 is just a hunk of steel . ive only seen a handfull of ST-1's but they are very good, but that turret.....

If you like mediums get the IS 8
If you like real heavies get the E 75
If you like heavies with flat armor St 1

E-75 is great, very good frontal armour and a hard hitting gun. IS-8 drives very nice, but everybody can pen you; the gun is nice, but not as much alpha as the 12.8cm from the E-75. Can't say much about ST-1...

I like the E75 ... good heavy.
I like the Is8 ... plays like a med and has a good gun, but the e75 is a better heavy.

Not got the st-1 yet .... but if it plays like the old IS4 it was a good tank when maxed.

I say E-75. Good armor, turn on the spot, and quite fast for a heavy tier 9.
Good acc. good damage, reload time is ok. And great armor.

Though ST-I is also a good tank, when elite, fought 3 tier 8 (IS-3, T-44, Tiger II) and a tier 6 (VK 3601) alone at once and won. All were full health.
And it can hull down, and has some good gun depression, but it's quite slow.

And IS-8.... Well... I sold it after a few battles, don't wanna talk about it, hate it. It's not my type of heavy.

E75 is a beast! Very agile for such heavy heavy tank, good armour, good canon,  good fearfactor. It gets 4 out of 5 in rating from me (the last point its not getting because of some stupid weakspots it has)

If you want to stay on tier 9 because of the costs:

E-75 or ST-1

If you want to get a tier 10 eventually:

IS-8


On the new russian lines it seems like one is good, the next is bad and so on.
IS bad, IS-3 great, IS-8 not so good, IS-7 great
KV-3 ok, KV-4 crap, ST-1 great, IS-4 not so good

On the german side it looks like brackets.
Tiger H bad, Tiger II good, E-75 great, E-100 bad
Tiger P good, VK A bad, VK B not so good, Maus good
