AMX 13 75 has matchmaker of tier 7 medium. It shouldn't be compared with tier 6 meds.

My votes: T-34/85, KV-2, M18 Hellcat, S-51

I think poeple realy underestimate the t-150 its a kv-2 but more armor more speed etc.
And the 152 on the kv-2 is not that usefull because of low rof and it only does mostly about 300dmg.

T-150 is nice, but if you're in tier X, there's a lot of tanks you can't harm. I've played KV with 107mm first and then switched to 152mm. It's a lot, lot more fun to play with derp gun. You can hit everyone, even from wild angles or if only little part of it stays out of the corner.
What I don't understand is why people mount 107mm on KV-2 now, if there's T-150 with a lot faster turret.

Yes but it still got 167pen and thats more then any tier 6 tanks except the arl44.
Look at the the german mediums they only got 132 pen even less then the tier5 pz  iv.

Well, they can always use gun from PzIV ;p
Yes, pen and dmg in 107mm is good and I really like this gun. I've played some battles in T-150 and it can stand a lot. But if what counts the most is fun, then derp is derp :)
But I won't say of course that T-150 is a bad tank. I just like derp play style a bit more.

My picks, AMX 75, KV-2, M18, S-51. The T-150 is good, but I love my KV-2, still a beast on the battlefield :)

Because the 107 is boss.

Sherman E2 because it can get to a spot and defend it from several tanks with the stock turret-look at my 1888xp replay in a t7 game.

ARL44 because it can do something in high tier games. KV2 comes close but it is artied way too easily.

SU-100 cos I say so.

GWP because ability to aim accurately and deal damage over time compared to the S-51 which has a hard time catching targets for massive damage every 42secs is better.

152mm on the KV-2 is very useful, good driven can make a lot of problems to the hight tiers. Before the split I was using only zis-6 because derp was too slow for lower tiers, now using it makes more sense for me (other than fun). My average dmg in battle is 1050 as I recall (yes - mediocre player). Nothing better than support fire on poor E-100 makin 280dmg always or 890dmg in the back of a tiger. I have 2x e-75 and one is-8 fragged in it so far and I was 1 shot from fragging E-100 (arty took that last 150hp, sick)

What I don't understand is why people mount 107mm on KV-2 now, if there's T-150 with a lot faster turret.

KV-2 has better fire rate with 107mm. T-150 has faster turret traverse, but slower tank traverse, so if you turn tank and turret at the same time, KV-2 gun traverse is almost same as T-150.

Me and my friends have regular T6 Company every week and we have 2 and more T6 tanks each, so there some experience we gathered:
Mediums:
- all T6 medium tanks are more or less equals. Some have beter firepower, some speed, some armor, but nothing outstanding.

Heavies:
- KV-2 has best fire power with 107mm. 152mm damage is very erratic - could be 150, could be 800. Unfortunately most often it will be ~250.
- T-150 is jack-of-all-trades. No specific strenght or weeknes.
- ARL has best armor and best gun, but low damage output.
- KV-1S is fast and has best alpha dmg, but crapy armor.
- M6... well... JgPzIV is worse. Ok ok, it is not bad tank when equiped with 90mm, but no good for companies :)

TD:
- M36 Slugger performs like a medium tank.
- M18 Hellcat is a kickass scout-raider.
- SU-100 nothing spectacular. Better take proper medium or heavy.
- JgPzIV is a total disaster.

Arty:
- Grille is the best.
- M7 Priest is a poor man's Grille.
- French premium arty (forgot name, le-something) is a nock-off Priest, i.e. even worse.
- SU-5 is pure pain. No range, no ammo and no damage.

OK, that's about it. Just a side note, that after KV-3 became T7, there is no "wining" configuration of T6 company. All heavies perform more or less equaly good.

  • M4AE2 {good guns, decent mobility and the armour of a heavy. One on one it will also beat the 3601(H) which lacks penetration}
  • KV-1s {speed, just enough armour to ward of low tier zippies and after 7.3 the only tier 6 with a long 122mm gun}
  • M18 {a Slugger, only better}
  • GWPanther {close call with the S-51, but the fact that GWPanther can counter-battery the S-51 and not the other way around was decisive. Also, while the S-51 wins more against higher tier, the GWPanther will in general contribute more to the team effort with varried MM}

amx 12t isn't considered as a tier 6 by the matchmaking, I've played with it, I've been top tier sometimes and never seen a tier X.

Mediums: VK3601H.
Heavies: KV-1S.
TDs: M18 Hellcat.
SPGs: GwPanther.

STFU noob.

1. Have you seen tier X in any other tier 6 mediums? After 500+ battles in T-34/85 I haven't seen it once.
2. -1 for being rude
3. STFU rude noob

You can't name "noob" someone who's just showing us his/her opinion on the game. It's his/her right to do so and you can't act like your opinion is worth more than his/her.

I don't know if you don't read the posts before answering or if you are simply a russian bias, but in both the cases you have some problem.
-1 for answering before reading.

Understand now, or do you need a draw?

I can't see your point.
You don't like Russian tanks? Mine -1 was because you're insulting others. And what's your reason? To feel better?

What?
No, really... are you kidding me?

He stated that all russian tanks are OP in comparison to their peers, but do I have to explain that to you?

-1 for being illiterate, maybe.
