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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
