All options are open, I'm within two or three tanks either route, so it's

 

A-44 > Obj 416 > T-54 (one tank away)

T-34-85 > T-43 > T-44 > T-54 (two tanks away)

T-34 > MT-25 > LTTB > T-54 lwt > T-54 (three tanks away)

 

But I'm finding the next choice a bit baffling, I fancy the LTTB, but I'm already having fun in the A-44 so wonder if the Obj 416 would be better, and I've unlocked the M-25 but can't get up the enthusiasm to buy it, so may just Free XP past it. I would really appreciate any ideas.

 

I'm not intending to rush, but it is a matter of which tank to invest serious efforts in.

if you enjoy the A-44 then stick with that (for me personnaly it is my favourite medium), many people consider the obj 416 vastly superior to the A-44 (i personally dont quite get along with it just yet)

but obj is good as it has one of the best camo vallues in the game and has the firepower of the T-54 (330 HEAT penn :justwait:) with the main drawback being having absolutely no gun depression.

cant comment on the classic line as i dont even have the T-34-85 unlocked, regular T-34 just seems complete and utterly cursed in my hands :arta:.

MT-25 is a meh tank. The grind isn't bad, but you don't really enjoy it. LTTB is a step in the right direction and the T-54 ltwt is legendary - Also very good for CW (Though noticing your clan that would mean nothing :p ). However the 416 looks like a good tank, and since you're really close to the T-54 from that (Plus I think that's the tank you need for the Obj. 430?), I'd say just stick with the way you're going, especially since you're obviously capable with the rear turret style

Yes, I think keep going in the A-44 direction. Truth is I tried too many on the test server, such as the LTTB, and I think less knowledge would have given me less to worry about now.

Everybody will give you different answer. Don't trust them, they don't know your playstyle and your advantages. Try all those tanks for yourself and see what you like and dislike. These are Russians, it's all fun grind, no bad tanks here.

MT-25 is insanely fun tank. If you are clever and sneaky. If you don't suffer when you loose because your team failed and there's nothing you could do to win. If it's only about fun, assistance damage and cleaning up tanks at second part of battle, fulfilling your scout supporting role, MT 25 is really beautiful and cute little beast. I miss mine so much.

The 416 is an excellent tank, you get the 330 heat round for the T10 games plus the speed of a medium with the camo of a light. Just remember not to knife fight with it as it gets tricky up close with the limited turret traverse. Not played the other lines to T54 so can't comment on them, but I don't think I've missed out at all. Obj 416 is also the only one that leads to 3 T10 russian mediums.... enjoy

I did have a go in the MT-25 on the 9.14 test and I'm not a fast nippy tank type of player although I do see them well played in many battles. In fact with the news physics and maps I don't mind admitting I am even more wary of light fast tanks and the rolls they tend to play. But I've opened up every option this weekend by Eliting my T-34-85 so now I just need to commit because from now on it gets far more expensive to t9.

 

thank you all for the replies, very much appreciated.

first get Obj430 II, unlock last gun on it and sell it if you don't enjoy playing it(it's a good tank, but i simply didn't enjoy playing it). Save that crew for T62a or Obj140 and go back to T34-85 so you will make another crew for 2nd tX medium(and because of 430II you'll have 2nd best gun for T-54 as soon as you unlock turret). This way you will have 2 good med crews and won't have to do painful 60k xp grind on T-54
