Hi all. Would like to see opinons from experienced players owe E75 and ST1.
myself cant decide which tank to go for.
I do like e50 and is3 (best tanks so far in game all around).

PS> looks like i prefer e75.... but maybe ST1 better?

E75 is better, but the IS4 better than E100...

Didnt had a need to drive ST-I, since I've got IS-4 before the T10 change. But one point to consider:

KV-4 is a very very very special thing to grind. Could be way too painful. German tech trees are generaly a safe all-around bet.

E-75 I think.
More faster, turning speed, awesome sloped armor.
ST-I, had it, it has 160mm of lower plate armor and as you progress from KV-4 you get a 175mm pen gun at tier 9.. That's BS.
Lower plate is junk, next tower gets great hulldown and even the little cupola on it has 225mm of armor, another nightmare to facehug with.

If you hide your hull with ST-I, it's impossible to pene that tank without using gold ammo (E-75 has a weakspot on the top of the turret...). Anyway, even if E-75 is better than ST-I, majority of people knows E-75 as the "t9 maus" so they immediatelly use gold ammo on you, so then E-75 is more like a slow moving, half-paper tank with low pene. But on the other side, E-75 rotates also quite fast (good in critical situations when you need to move from one side to another...)... It's really hard to choose.

I know ST-I only as my enemy, so dunno, how about his owners, but at this moment, I'd prefer ST-I. But if the gold ammo is cancelled, then certainly E-75   :Smile_great:


Edit:
P.S.: Pasport wrote IS-4 is better than E-100... Since gold ammo is buyable for credits, E-100 seems more like and OP tank, it's 2700 hp is really a lot and IS-4 has more weakspots than french lights..  :Smile_trollface-3:

as a st-1 owner i would say e75.

the st-1 has way too many weakspots both on the hull and front turret, abnormaly long reload + aimtime(longest of all t9 heavys) and aint exactly mobile.
if you do bounce whit the st-1 its moustly luck or by ppl who hadly have faced it before.

if you meet a pro he will pen you whit ap even if you are hull down, thats how flawed the front turret is.

The KV4 is a nightmare. But both the ST-I and IS-4 are such a reward.


Invulnerable turret and gun accuracy/penetration make the ST-I a perfect medium range heavy tank(dont expose the front hull and stay at a medium distance) The E75 (i platoon a lot with one) is a better all-rounder heavy, but more vulnerable on the turret. Once your crew is decent(mine are 116%), the speed and even more the acceleration of the ST-I become much better than E75, giving it my preference...
