Can someone explain to me which arties on which tiers are best suited for these reworked personal missions. Since the arty nerf I have only been playing the S-51 and no mission success no matter how much I stun, etc. I feel cursed.

Churchill GC has plenty of splash. Inaccurate as hell (shell rarely lands in the same postcode, so rarely any direct damage), but decent splash/stun/tracking.

S-51 has plenty splash as well, I assume you mean I should play top tier arty for more potential damage? I don't own any top tier arty and don't really want to invest in it, was hoping to get things done in S-51 alone :(

I tried these missions with GW Panther, M44, M53/M55. Did not yet succeed with the last one (15-4 for Obj.260).

I have been doing my last few arty missions who had not been done with honors and found that the Obj. 261 was the easiest for those stunmissions. Good splash, good splashrange and usually enough HP on the enemy team.

Something fast firing.

I completed the rest of the 260 missions with the M50/53 using the stock gun. Was easy.

So far I have done them all apart from SPG15 (T55A) with the BC 155 55. Yes, they are frustrating though.

You preferably want something fast firing and decently accurate + bigger gun arc is always a big help. More shots mean more chances to stun/detract and more chances for your muppet of teammates who can hit one shot out of 10 to actually help you with the mission.

Conqueror GC while not fast firing isnt bad as well, huge gun arc and big splash. You can easily hit several enemies with one hit at some choke point at heavy flank and considering the power of guns at tier 10 if you are lucky enough you could get the missions done in two good hits.

Personally I did the spg 15 mission for T55a with M40/43 with stock gun and got very close with FV207, I guess FV3805 could work as well with stock gun which should have even better stats than on 207 and M53/55 with stock gun would be better than M40/43 because of the gun arc. 8" guns on americans definitely arent bad and you can do that with them as well given good map and balanced teams, it is just that smaller guns gave you more opportunities on wider range of maps where the battles are usually shorter.

FV3805 with stock gun. Accurate with approx 18sec reload and 15 sec stuntime. Enjoy administering the permastun.

Before the changes to arty I did all missions up to the 260 ones with the GWPanther.  I now have the M53/55 and this seems fine (even with the stock gun) for missions in the 260 current set.  I would get something a bit faster firing than the S51.  The USA T6/7 arties were very easy grinds for me.  I feel the S51 was a one-trick pony (huge alpha for tier) that is no longer relevant for today's arty.
