I got M46 Patton KR and 59 Patton on sale and I can't decide which one to buy. I hope there is some player with some experience under his belt that can tell me what to buy since I don't want to buy both of them. I mostly need them for credits and free xp, I don't have much interest in crew training.

59 Patton has better armour and its penetration will be buffed soon.

I had the KR and wasn't really that impressed with it. Pilot is better in every way. The turret armour isn't that great on it and considering it's supposed to be a ridge line animal when you're constantly getting penned through the gun mantlet it gets frustrating. Well it did for me anyway.

I don't like M46 very much cause of his armor but QB told very good about him so I'm confused now. 59 Patton has great stats but QB said it's sh*t. Don't get me wrong but he is a good guy and I respect his opinion so I'm very confuse now. xD :O

Trust QB only when he grows a proper beard.

The review is back when tank was released, it is somewhat outdated now. He said in his stream recently that its "mediocre" or something.

ROFL! Good one xD So 59 Patton it is. Since you said that what about Panther 8.8? He is kind of under-apriciated I think. :/ (sorry to bother you but I havent played this gae for a year and a half now :/ )

QB likes tanks with good gun depression and gun handling that can work ridges, something the M46 does/done well, hence he was so high on it at the time.

 

I got mine when it first came out. I thought it was a solid tier 8 and at one point I started earning more credits in it than I was in my IS-6. Then the power creep started and broken MM arrived, so the M46 is just another mediocre at best tier 8 medium that requires a significant amount of premium ammo spam.

 

I'd honestly get an M4 Rev or Skorpion G.

M46KR is the far better tank.

 

59 Patton has the most enormous cupola that you can see coming 5 minutes before the rest of the tank - your gun depression means nothing.

 

Or you could be smart and just forget these two - get the T26E5 - it's basically the M46KR with super-dupor amazing troll armour.

What this guys says. T26E5 has better DPM and 230mm pen with regular ammo and actual reliable frontal armor and very good turret armor. It's a far better choice than any tier 8 medium tank.

Agreed. To be honest I doubt I'd get any of them now. As said I tried the KR and it didn't feel competitive to me. The introduction of the Pilot simply killed it off in my book. I haven't got or played the Patton but that cupola is like wow - shoot me here.

Patriot is better, I'd even say that the Super Pershing is a better option as an American medium premium if training a medium crew is needed.
