TOG II or KV-5 would be perfect because they'd also provide living space. TOG II is big enough for a small living room, same for the KV-5's turret.

you could have simply quoted the guy on page one  :trollface:  :tongue:  :harp:
but you are right, the guns wont do much against infantry tho, the KV 5 has a couple of MG,s but that only on the frontal, easy to climb up the tank from the tracks to. worries about that

T-50 and Pz 1C would be the best when it comes to killing zombies . however , if you're planning to foucs less on killing and more on surviving , you better take the MAUS .
it has LOTS of free space , it's high and sloped so there is no way a zombie can climb it and enter through the hatch . it is also heavy so once you ram a zombie , there is no way it is still alive or dead . also , you can use the gun in the long distance with HE shells . the large caliber allows it to kill dozens of zombies with 1 shell!

I voted for modern mediums, that is Russian, UK, USA.. the ones with NBC seal.

In essence, anything with enough space and good gas mileage.

Guns you don't really need, since you actually don't care about some feral humanoids that rely on clawing their way through even 5cm of RHA.

So, good gas mileage, and good space inside, with  NBC seal.

Sounds more like an IFV to me ;)

good NBC seal? have you seen any tank from the times it was mass-produced? the ones you see in museums are preserved tanks from post-WW2 era . many of the tanks during WW2 came out of the factory with missing parts . sometimes there is no radio , sometimes the gun is incompatible and sometimes you can even see that there is a huge chunk of steel missing . I've seen those documentary films . tanks rolled out of the factory without wheels on 1 side .
this is the reality about those mediums such as T-34 and M4 sherman .
gas mileage is terrible with all these tanks simply because they are tanks with very strong engines that need a lot of fuel .

go for the heavies . heavy tanks were usually of higher quality and they had almost non to non missing parts since their production is slower .
NBC isn't needed . all you need is a tank that is high enough to not let zombies climb on it . don't always rely on the hatches to be strong . that's why I chose MAUS .

Who mentioned T-34 or M4? I was thinking more in lines with T-54. And good NBC because who knows what variety of plagues are in those rotten scoundrels ;)

T-54 has open hatches . I wouldn't consider that an NBC protection . and an NBC protection wouldn't be all that helpful since you gotta get out of the tank sometimes to refuel and to find food .
if I could choose a modern tank I would definitely go for Merkava 4M . amazing armor , amazing gun , amading NBC protection , fast , heavy (good for ramming) and has an operational range of 500km , plus , it has a lot of free space and the rear compartment can be used to sleep in and/or to store food . on the other hand , the challenger has a tea-making machine .
what would be your favorite modern tank to survive in ?

Left 4 Dead tells us Zombies don't take much killing so a small gun with a fast rate of fire and something good for squishing bodies (so no Type 59 then  :trollface: ).

Fast and manoeuvrable would also help.

And lots of ammo.

Just though some of the high teir artillery. they are fully covered and the blast radius of those guns would kill most zombies.

killing zombies isn't the solution . there would be hundreds of millions if not billions of them . so what you need is a tank to survive in . in WOT limits , MAUS is the best to stay alive and not giving a f*** .
T-50 is good for escaping and Pz 1C is good for killing everything in your path .
artillery is the most dangerous thing you can get into . and I mean it is dangerous for you! most SPGs are open , and the ones that are not , are very lightly armored . their steel plates can shatter in hard hits . "I am legend" taught me that zombie's brains are so damaged that they are unaware of pain like regular humans and that they would do anything to get food . if a zombie smashes himself into the SPG's rear or side , he could seriously damage the armor and force it to curve . multiple hits will make it shatter and allow zombies to get in .

for the long-term survival: M6A2E1 TOG II SU-100Y KV-5 MAUS (because they are damn big - supplies)
short-term survival/gettin' the f*ck out of some place: any low-tier-MG-like-gun owner (Pz II, Pz I C, T-60 etc)
"for fun": BT-SV ... those poor zombies would never climb that, not at that speed it reaches ... also it's amphibious, so you always have a backup plan

the M2 LT has an MG (20mm 15 shell burst 8 sec rld) with 1015 shells capacity, also 3 MG,s of non ingame use
that will do :glasses:
