Happy birthday to you!

Kv-5 is not an easy tank to play, It has very good armor, but its slow and has got very weak gun.

T34 is on my opinion the best tier 8 premium on market at this time. (T59 is the best but you cannot buy it now)

If getting gold is hard for you I would recommend a tier 5 heavy for you. Churchill is my favorite and it costs only 1500 gold. It has good armor, very fast (but not very powerfull) gun which shoots almost like an machinegun... It makes good money and is usually a top tierer in battles.

I agree wholeheartedly.

The Churchill doesn't make a vast fortune but you always walk away from battles with a tidy profit. It's also got an enormously fun configuration, having great frontal armor and a pew-pew-pew gun that lets you pepper-spray the enemy with shells.

The other huge advantage of this tank is that it is great for crew training if you ever want to get a load of Russian heavy tanks for your garage.

Happy Birthday bigflyboy!

First of all happy birthday :)!

I would not reccomend the KV-5 as everyone in the game knows its weakspot now. It's gun is also subpar compared to other tier 8's. Personally i think it is the worst tier 8 tank in game (I rarely see one surviving the battle or actually putting out alot of dmg). Any other tier 8 heavy can outdamage it 1vs1 and it's armor advantage is pretty useless considering the huge weakspot.  I have heard it makes some nice credits though.

If you want a tier 8 i would reccoment either the T34 or the Löwe. Both are quite slow (although the T34 is slightly faster, especially uphill) but have a very good gun for their tier. Both are best played as second line or defensive tank, you can compare the T34 with the T30 imo. If you want a tank just to make money you could also get a churchill or T14 as said above. I personally enjoy my T14 alot but i've also heard alot of good stories about the churchill.
