I'd like to know which tank you prefer and why and if it can win enough credits to sustain itself, i mean if its winnings in the end of a match are enough to pay for its repairs and ammo
*without premium

if you want it to have self sustaining credits then the T32 is a no no, I have it and I have to use other tanks to maintain it

I have T32 and I can do 3-5 matches per day. Get your daily double and then use tier 5 for credit farming. You need rammer and vertical stabilizer for this vehicle.
If you get 105 mm and top turret, things will change (I hope).

A Pershing in the right hands can usually break even on most cases aside from bad losses where you don't deal much damage, get fully destroyed and waste ammo.

T32 maintains itself for me... without premium... I guess it all depends on how the battle turn out :)

I had both and I enjoyed them much. T32 is very good, but you have to know weakspots and maps well to play this tank efficient. The same with Pershing. When you learn how to play Pers it will be a self-maintainable tank, but will not earn credits. With the T32 the situation is worse cause of 1k ammo cost. But it won't eat very much of your credits, just a bit. :)
In one word: I recommend you both those tanks, it's a great fun playing them.

As i do not have the m26, I can't really comment on which to get.
But! I do have the t32 and it does not eat away all my money. Sometimes I lose credits, sometimes I gain a profit.

As saml6131 said, Persh doesn't require additional credit farming. It can earn enough to pay for repair and ammo. It can even earn a bit, but not incredible amounts. It even got repair cheaper for 6%.

I played a lot with both of these. Regarding win ratio statistics they both lead in their own class. Pershings's as all other tier 8 mediums were kings of battlefield till 7.5, but they are not now, as tier9 mediums are _much_ better. I would now recommend T32, if you are a good player (your stats say that you are)(simply because it is a more important tank in the team), Pershing otherwise.
Both mediums and heavies at tier8 are designed to create credit loss on average without premium account. Though a good player can even make money with them. This means that even if they eat your money, they will not eat much. Pershing is slightly more profitable. I manage to run my Pershing with positive profit (about 500-1000 / match) without premium, using the usual consumables.

So if you do not mind the slightly less profitability, the slowlyness of a heavy tank, then I recommend the T32 now.

ill keep that in mind thanks :Smile_Default:
i chose the T32 to start the tier VIII and i think it was a good purchase since i probably am going to lose credits in this tier repairs are around 11-12k and even with and average loss i dont lose a lot of credits (stock gun ammo) i might even win more money with this than with tiger...

The only problem of T32 is the cannon. T32 is an nice tank, but T29 was much more fun because of his tier.

I have T32 and a few battles - used free XP for turrett & tracks & 105mm.

Overall - Its pretty much break even. Two reasons.

Bad losses are...well, bad - u lose 10,000 to 15,000

BUT

1. - If you win then very often you will make about 10,000 ish...

2. - For some unexplained reason this tank has a good win ratio - mine hovers at about 60% This means your "bad" losses will be clawed back - I cant explain it since Its essentially a beefed up T29 with same gun and turret (more or less), just worse MM.

Heres a tip - everyone rants how bad T29 & T32 are on flat terrain but if you sidescrape behind a building in a city, or next to a rock/wreck, you are nigh-on invulnerable. google sidescraping if you dont know....suffice to say all their shots hit ur face (300mm :) ) or track you for no damage. T32 seems very, very good at soaking up all damage into its tracks - a winner :)
