im searching for a small, fast tank that has a powerful gun that will hit enemy like a shark. i liked the ELC but i want something more powerful like M4A1 Rev. but that tank is too slow. can you guys recommend me a tank that meets the description?

Object 416. An aquired taste, but it is low profile, fairly quick and gets a pretty meaty gun.

T-44 with the 122mm? :trollface:

 

 

Jokes aside, T71 or B-C 12t if autoloaders are acceptable. 

Larger sharks may include AMX 50 100 or Lorraine 40t (though they are rather large) or even the T9 or T10 Batchats. I'd recommend the latter, you'll get practice with autoloaders, and if you already have the ELC you're practically set.

 

Ikv 103 might be fast enough, and packs quite the punch for a T5 TD.

You want to play the Tier 8 medium obj 416, its smal, low profile, it packs a 100mm gun that outputs 320 alpha and the reload time with decent crew and bia can go around 5 seconds

its also very good in camorating, and can be played like either a scout or a silent TD in certain maps.

I got AMX 12t yesterday, played around 40 games with it (that said, I used free XP to get top equipment + GLD, VertStab, Vents) and put in 100% crew. Love this tank, been doing 1,700 WN8 in it with damage often going above 1000HP (2x the tank's HP pool). Very agile, stealth tank with excellent ability to peep out, put a shot or two in your side armor and hide.

 

That said, depression/elevation aren't the best. Overall, I think if you're new to WOT - chances are you'll hate it, better to get it after you get an understanding of autoloaders. I'm a very average player with 5k battles but been playing Lorraine 40t a bit, which definitely helped.

Best meds are tier 9-10, too high for you. Lights have some gems across tiers, but they are the most difficult class to master and require good crew, equipment and skill/experience, better dont play too much lights until you learn the basics of the game.

 

I recommend you to play heavies and some tds. So I recommewnd you hellcat and 25/2, fast tds with turret, you could camp and use them as meds when required.

 

Other tanks that fits your description are T140, T54, wz-131, wz-132, T71, but they require more exp imo and some gold ammo.

perhaps a French light such as the 12t? fast, nimble, and clip can give some nice damage

type 64 maybe? the gun has low alpha, but the rof makes it a little more dangerous than it looks


 

potentially, T67?


 

the PZ4H is pretty nice with the gun depression and howitzer combo, its also fast enough to relocate to places

the A-43 is said to be quite nice after the recent rework, much like a Cromwell, that said, you could even look at the Cromwell?
