Basically what the title says. Just looking for some recommendations for heavy tanks that will help me grind through the HT mission set. Have not yet completed the ones for the Stug IV yet. Standard and premium tanks are both welcomed. 

 

Thanks in advance.

You have T34 and IS-6, the StuG missions should be doable in either of those.

Winning answer will be Maus but in terms of grinding the line at the same time I would say the IS4 line as the KV3, KV4 and ST1 all do well in terms of armour tier for tier.

IS-6 does have decent armour but the UFP is only 100mm think...when I bounce, everyone switches to gold and goes through it anyway...or high pen standard ammo will go straight through regardless. I can pen an IS-6 from the front with my FV4202...basically, I love and loath the IS-6 equally. T34 is good, might purchase her again perhaps. Although I have a T29 which is almost the same apart from the gun. 

 

Maus would be fun but I am a looooong way from that. Don't have the skill nor the money/time for it just yet. One day maybe :)

My most successful HT at highr tier is the VK4502(B).  It will serve you well in later PMs.

Think I used the kv1 or OI for all stug HT missions. T29 and ONi are working well for the T28HTC missions.

O-I is quite strong and will bounce like a boss against people too cheap to press 2. I also assume you know how bouncy the Type 5 Heavy is and how devastating that HE gun is? The jap heavy line is quite good for a lot of the HT missions.

 

IS-3, T-10 and IS-7 are also very good heavy tanks for PMs.

 

Patriot and Defender are very good premiums for dmg done and bouncing shots.

 

And right now Maus is king, but will receive a nerf soon.

 

Good luck.

Unless there's a mission to feed the enemy 1,5k hp while bouncing 100% of your shots I doubt IS-6 is any good for that tbh

IS7 can do it all, especially after buffs. It's the one I did most up to T55A missions.

I did almost all missions in is7, for t55 and 260.. Or some is7-line-tanks earlier...
Very few in OI/ONI like kill 2 +2 tier HT, etc... was very wasy with oi.. pardon, not very easy, but not as hard as in some other heavies.

I would pick is7 line too.

I'd pick the following:

 

tier 5: kv-220 or kv-1

tier 6: ARL44 or T-150

tier 7: T-29

tier 8: Defender (or T-34)

tier 9: E75

tier 10: Maus or Type 5

Hi!

I did most of my HT missions for StuG with my tier-5-6-7 heavies. Only for the last one I dusted off my old (t)rusty IS-4. Generally speaking are damage missions easier with tier-8-9-10 tanks. Others you can do in mid-tiers. Just check the requirements and pick appropriate tank. :justwait:

 

BR,  Iztok

IS6 can do the missions for Stug and T28htc no bother. On an alt account I play with my son I only have the T29 as highest tier heavy and it works a treat too. Let that turret take all the shots you can and the stock turret and smaller gun can help too for HT12.
The problem now is more the lights after MM change you almost need a tier 7 or 8 light to have any chance of spotting enough for lt15.

Maus and IS7, O-Ni  and Type4HT also worked well, t34/lowe did their job.

I did my missions till the T55A with tier 8/9 (lowe and E75 mostly), then i took the Obj260 using Maus/IS7/Type4HT. The HT15 with Maus it pretty simple.

For stug - all is possible on KV1 or T150.

 

Just remember for the block/bounce missions, don't kill the tanks that are bouncing on you until you've hit the target amount :)

I managed most of the Stug IV missions with the VK 30.01 H, VK 36.01 H, Tiger I. I actually managed HT-12 with the Tiger 131 during the xp fever...bounced KV-2s three times that day at close range. Was hilarious reading "blocked: 700".

What I've observed, T29s manage to block a whole lot of damage while also dealing it, and I'm myself grinding one for HT-15.

 

Good majority of the missions the tank doesn't matter.

Thank you all for the input. I have nearly completed the heavy tank missions for the Stug. Just need to get 6000 (Or 7000?) damage dealt, taken and blocked. I need to complete it with honours and I get my Stug!!! Wish me luck :mellow:
