This thread again. For the last time, T34 is by far the best premium tank. Gun is 75% in this game.

T34! IS6 is a lump of s**t and Lowe is too slow. T34 also packs the biggest punch and more damage=more cash.

I drive T34 and he is so amazing... His Gun is very nice nice damage and the penetration is wonderful. The Turret is perfect only a little weakspot at the top but only sometimes someone hurts me there.
My dad drives Löwe and he is ok... very slow good gun but a weak spot tank. Every hit hurts you.
I played Is-6 on the last Test Server...not my favourite tank. I think he is bad.

T 34 is best prem tier 8 tank that i have evr played so my oppinion is that T34 is best prem tank to play but in the end everybody has a other opppinion :)

I played about 400 games with T34, was a fun tank, but now I also bought KV-5. I think it's even more fun because it's the top tier tank for 90% of the time. A great moneymaker, better than T34, unless you're top tier with T34, which rarely happens.

t34 is top premium tank if you enter very fast in rage mode, and want to make big damage to big tiers....

I personally make more credits with my Löwe than with my T34.

I would say, Löwe for the average player, and T34 for more experienced players. The Löwe is a balanced tank, excellent gun, decent hull armor, good turret armor, and somewhat bad mobility. T34 also has an excellent gun, poor hull armor, excellent turret armor and somewhat better mobility... It depends on your play style really, but both are very good if played right.

As for the IS-6, well I haven't tried it, but that penetration is very low, you will probably bounce a lot. Bounce = no damage = no credit/xp.

IS6 never caused serious trouble in any tank of same tier when duelling it.

I have T34 and lowe, and both income are similar.

I prefer T34 over lowe cuz of its great gun that AT LEAST (frustrated german hvy driver inside) i can reliably penetrate higher tiers. Make me think the T34 gun is what should be mounted on E75...
Dont get me wrong, lowe doesnt have too much penetrating problems, its a very good tank i also like much.

I purchased T34 very lately, to switch playstyle for moneymaker, and having two moneymakers to make quick cash when needed, and because first underestimated it when it was released, but hell getting owned in a tier IX by a premium tier VIII was some wtf moment for me due to that high dmg/high pen gun that is very noob friendly, even for sniping.

Edit: as for armor, the lowe is quite bouncy (especially turret), T34 have some invincible (but cuppola) turret, and both have suxxy lower front plate, point for T34 since engine cant get damaged or burning frontally wich can happen on lowe without engine durability buff perk/element.

T34 is one of the tanks that "dont give a $#!t" about MM - 120mm with some weakspot knowledge can punch everyone in the face. And even then you have quite convincing HE (515dmg@60mm). Just don't get too cocky and rush with it as T34 excels at mid to long range when hull down. Caught with pants down by med and it just dies. Also handle it with patience - reload and aim time trains you well in that department

Lowe have better turret armour but no gun depression, hull is better but still squishy + likes to burn from lower plate hits.

KV-5 is very underestimated tank. Many clanmates in need of moneymaker bought it and when played smart it just rapes stuff, as long you don't meet too tough enemies. Platoon 2x KV5 + T34 often can pulverize half of their team, unless MM goes trololo and sets you against 6x Maus


IMHO T34>Lowe, unless you have wild mob of 200hp mediums coming at you. Then better RoF in Lowe helps.

I used to think Löwe (750+ battles), but now unfortunately I have to agree the T34 is better. The gun is simply awesome and the turret impenetrable.

Actually turret is easy to pen, especially at short range, aim cuppola weakspot...

It's way easier for me to get high amounts of credits when driving an IS-6 than the T34 mainly because the armor can actually bounce stuff. With the MM in 7.5 it will only face tier 9 tanks so any weakspot can be penetrated with the 122 gun. Damage is nearly identical to that of a t34, but the rate of fire is better than that of the lowe. Thing is you also get credits for being in the first line, so you don't give 50% of the cash to the guy who spots. Since the t34s hull armor can't bounce anything that is thrown against him, going in close quarters is not the best idea unless you got some things to cover that hull and make due of the great turret armor. I was actually surprised how well the IS-6 plays.
If going head on against any of the tier 8 premiums ( and i mean attacking one at 10 meters without any objects to interfere or be used as cover) this tank can destroy any of the premiums since the lowe catches fire incredibly easy, and if not...well 390 damage at 5.3 rpm is better than 320 at 5 rpm, the t34...same story but bigger damage and worse rpm, and the kv5...well lets just say that i've had plenty of 1 on 1 games against kv-5s in the is6 and either they don't know the weakspots, or they just can't pen (100mm at the is-6 angle is around 170 line of sight armor).

Problem is...THIS TANK AIN'T WORTH 11800 GOLD. it is fun, but not worth the cash. Honestly...just keep your money in your pocket until mid august or so, when the type 59 gets back in stores. Now that tank is a great premium.. stay front towards enemy and slightly angled, and even tier 8 meds will have a hard time. Tthat thing made me stop grinding for med tanks since it has all i would need: great bouncy armor, nice gun, meh to ok mobility, and it never loses credits.

again: i personally think that the is-6 is fun to play, maybe not now since you might be facing tier 10s, but when i got an is-7 to bounce 3 consecutive shots while i kept him tracked and dealt damage (sides can easily be penned) i had a pretty stupid grin on my face. Also is-4 top turret...not strongly armored.

i would say if youre patient person a T34 is the best,
if you like the is series of russian heavies the IS-6 is best.
löve i never tried so i cant say so much,

i do have the T34 and the IS-6, bouth realy good at their own spesiality.
is-6 brawling and T34 on long range sniping, ( i usualy play it abit like a T30 TD player would do)

T34, if you get hull down you can hold of lots of tanks at once. Not to mention your gun is very good and packs a good punch (which is the most important thing in this game really, no matter what others say).

Had a match earlier this week where me in my T34 held back a T34, two IS-8, Object704 and a Tiger II by going hull down on a ridge and no arty on the map. Was one of my most epic matches ever even though we lost.

Got:
~1.3 K XP
~122K credits

On a loss
