Generally the Jagtig 8,8 is hated.... however I've liked mine for a long time, it gives good credits, has good armour and pre TD nerf stats (better hull then the existing tier 9 jagtig and pref mm).

Its oldest nemesis was artillery but the arty nerf ment it can actually brush aside arty hits now same tier and higher arty is usually hitting it for around 100-200 now which is ignorable.

That said it is a non turreted TD that is extremely old and can be penned even in its stronger armour profiles by gold.

It prints credits, personally (and I've played a decent amount of prem tanks) I have yet to meet a prem that can print credits like this tank.

If you're looking for a medium, the Revalorisé is currently the best performer. Good gun handling and high alpha damage, which is always pleasing. The Lorraine 40t is also quite strong but it's an autloader which isn't everyone's cup of tea.

 

If you like to camp, the Skorpion G. If you like to push, the 252U or T26E5.

 

Lots of youtube reviews and gameplay videos exist on these tanks to help you decide if it's your thing.

Small-gun mediums are really anemic in the current meta. They lack the gun performance to do well, especially in T10 games - which you'll see a lot. Lorraine and Rev are probably the top choices for T8 meds, even if they aren't great in T10 battles.

 

From what I've heard, the Lowe is probably the top pick for a T8 tank now. Scorpion G is also workable, or even the S1 if you really like bushcamping.

 

VK4503 might be another safe pick for a moneymaker. Makes the same as most T8s, and doesn't really have to use APCR much. Better pick than the Panther 8.8, at least.

I have both Panther 8.8 and VK 45.03, but I mostly prefer the latter as it never sees Tier X but has the credit potential of tier 8 (not for me, but that's a different story...). However, VK is not suitable for close quarter brawling...

Seriously, in this new MM any T8 will be punished hard, if the Vk45,03 comes up get that at T7, MM is much better. Believe me any T8 you buy you will regret when all you see is 95% bottom tier.

All of the 3 tanks you listed are trash and not worth a cent. Löwe and VK 45.03 are your best picks of the currently available tanks.

VK45.03 is a lot like a Panther 88 with slightly less speed but with fantastic gun handling, better armor (enough to sidescrape) and epic MM. Also the gun holds up very well, you won't need much gold and if you do, the gold can pen everything you meet frontally except maybe the Type 4, which is doing a lot better than most T8 fare against T10.

 

Tier 7 MM is way better than T8, a lot more chance to be top tier or mid tier where t8s get pretty relentless bottom tier MM. 

 

(VK 45.03 is in the tech tree now for gold, so you can pick it up anytime)

Also if you're buying any tier 8 medium you're just asking for a bad tank and wasting your money.

I never enjoyed Lowe. My current favourites are the Skorp G and Liberte.

The best T8 Prems atm are the Defender (disgusting OP [edited]), Skorpion, and T26E5.

 

Jag88 is entirely pointless, all the mediums are dreadful thanks to how good the HTs are (Rev is kinda ok thanks to alpha), limited MM one are almost all dreadful now. Basically only the recent ones are worth anything really thanks to WG's deliberate decision to powercreep T8 to hell.

And to give tier VIII the worst mm in the game by far.

 

Almost exclusively bottom tier, unless you're a terrible player and lose alot of games....then you'll see alot of top tier.

Honestly, for fun, credit making and basically being a megatroll with the new MM I'd say the single best option is SU-122-44. Fast, very trollish and bouncy armour for its tier, russian 122mm gun with 6sec reload (asuming good crew and vents/rammer), not too bad aim time and farms money like a jewish jeweller. 

It's also insanely cheap this weekend ;)

the vk45 can be bought for gold in game now, a great tank, great pen and accuracy, i definitely recommend it too

DO NOT touch the JT88.

 

The JT88 is a tank that puts you through 5 horrible games before you get that one battle where you can use the gun and rack up 3k damage. The it is back to 5 terrible games.

 

It is painfully slow and armour means nothing as you'll be shot to pieces with premium ammo. The gun is indeed awesome, but you rarely get to exploit.
