Ok, so I like to snipe, but i currently have a lot of russian tanks (KV-1S, SU100, T34-85) and only the T34-85 is ok at it.
(don't snipe with the other ones, shells are too expensive to just miss :P)
So i was wondering what is the best sniper tank? and also has a nice way to get there ofcourse. I hope to find a T5/6 so I can make some money with them.

Just to be clear, I really don't care about the armour or mobility as long as the gun is accurate and the view range is high. (also high pen and dmg would be nice)

Hope anyone can help me!

E50M which is a German tier 10 medium has the most accurate gun in the game. In fact entire German medium tree from Panther and up to E50M are what I would call "mobile snipers".

After being spoiled by the accurate E50M gun, all other tanks seem like they just shoot somewhere "over there"... especially many of the Russian ones.

e50, e50m, t62a, panther2, lowe are good for sniping dew to good accuracy of their guns. but to win the game you have to remember your place and role in the team. You can do a nice sniping as e50 and do a lot of dmg but if you will not play a meds role your team will probably loose

StugIII with 7,5cm L70 gun
Panther with 7,5vm L100 gun
Any tier 6 german med with 7,5cm L70 gun
Tiger H/Tiger P with 8,8cm L71 gun
Tiger II with 10,5cm L68 gun
Pretty much all the British Churchills have really accurate guns.
Cromwell is also very accurate.

Panther 1 tier7 is my weapon of choice. with the 75mm L100 its an awsome sniper.
and Tiger H have a nice sniping gun.

On tier 5, both the stug 3 and the su85 are nice.  I like the SU85 a bit more than the stug, it hits harder.

There is no such thing as a role assigned by the vehicle class. You do not scout with an E50m even when it is medium, you do not soak up the damage with AMX 50B even when it is heavy, you do not scout with an H35 which is a light tank. You can however flank your enemy with T25AT or Stug3 even when they are turretless TDs, you can and should use the strength of the most accurate gun in the game for long range engagement, even when it's mounted on a medium tank, the Super Pershing is in fact a medium only on paper, being a a slow tank that can take a lot of punishment.

There are so many examples of tanks with different qualities that are within the same class, that pre-assigning a role based on that is just narrow minded.

Why noone has mentioned whole british tree? British tanks and TDs above tier 7 have almost most accurate guns in game. FV215b has second most accurate gun in game if you're talking about tanks, Tortoise has most accurate gun among TDs.

Best sniper tank I have played is the Panther Tier 7, because it's a great tanks has the best gun 0.3 accuracy and has some nice DPM.

The E-50M imao is gonna take you allot of time so I am going to recommend some low tier tanks, also Panther II is a failure as a medium tanks, it's a good sniper but suffer in MM.

So I really do recommend the Panther T7 and the Panther Prem if you looking for accurate prem tank, the 75mm L70 is good gun but British 75mm are better specially with the Cromwell.

Except for that the Chinese has some hard hitting guns that are accurate at high tier compared to Soviet and American big guns.

accualy, panther is the most accruate with 0.28-0.26... if i remember correctly

i dont remember correctly... sorry. yes E-50 is the most accruate, but are tied with the panthers L/100 though

You remember stats from the old days when they showed the maximum achievable, not just with 100% crew.

Also it's not really tied with any other German gun for a reason as simple as the fact that aim time on both 88 and 75 L/100 is slower. Among all 0.3 guns, E50M has best aim time at 2,1 seconds.

I suspect that the gun that will mostly feel like a rival in accuracy is the British top tier gun: it is slightly less accurate, but have faster aim speed. I am still working towards British tier tens, so it's just my theory for the time being. Until then E50M will continue being my beloved favourite sniper.


Oh, also Lowe is a good (but slow) sniper that prints money if you are willing to make one time purchase.

German tanks with the 7.5cm/L70 (shorter barrelled guns are awful)
The Stug 3 is a good moneymaker here.
The PzIV Schmalturm is a premium that also perfectly fits the role.

The British tier 4 Matilda with the 2pdr X-B can act as an amazing sniper
(the single shoot damage is awful, but the fire rate makes up for this)
