It only has a little bit less pen than the others, but you are a lt so you can flank easier. 

But its the hardest to play of them all. So if you arent very good the others are prob a better choice.

On that list I've only played the Type, DM and SU. Voted Type. 

 

Edit: The Sentinel AC6 is also not too shabby, depending on what you like.

As Brumbar says the Type 64 is probably the best, but it takes alot of skill to get the best out of it.

The Dicker Max and SU 100Y take very little skill, merely patience and the right maps. You can make OK silver in these two.

Skoda T 40 and Strv m 43/57 are both good but in different ways and play differently (I have both), marginally I prefer the Strv 42/57.

HT no.VI used to be bad, but it has received a buff and so long as you remember to play as a second line heavy it does alright.

 

The other reason why the Type 64 is best is that it is used ALOT by clans in tier VI Strongholds. But remember it is hard to use right.

Take Strv, it is the only tier 6 tank I have played the past 6~ months (except for the t34 85M). I have about 420 battles in the strv and really love it, but tier 6 mm is bad.. so.. meh. Type64 is the "best" but as other people have said: it requires more skill, while the strv is quite noob friendly in my experience

I'm pretty sure Type 64 sales have been kicking off (just a guess though) and they might pull it out from sales (another guess) soon, for the sake of "game balance". It is not expensive, I'd go for that, just in case. I'm quite good at LTing and the Chaffee, my most played tonk has only 3 more rounds, so I already know what to expect if I got one.

Yeah i play my Type 64 a lot and it is great if you know what you are doing. However the ammo capacity can be an issue on awesome games and I'm nowhere near the 3rd MoE as im stuck at 86% and have been for about 40 games now.....

 

BUT that's because my spotting/assisted is abysmal :hiding:

 

I have just got the No 6 though and i did a quick n dirty comparison against the other tier 6 heavies and it seems average ish. PLus i haven't bothered with the Jap heavy line yet so i think i might start.

Type64, after that the Swedish medium simply because it has an autoloader with good burst damage.

Then maybe DON'T only fire AP? It's better to spend some credits firing prem to live and later compensate for that with doing WAAAAY more money. I'm making way more money since I realized that.

Sure the pen is lower, but it's mobility, camo and ROF is superior to anything. So you can flank bully anything down with AP more so then not. And you can like any light, be top tier. So it's profit aspects is great. And as it's a light, you can farm plenty of assists without firing. As you don't make credits on damage only.

 

The Swedish medium would be a good second option. Not as mobile, but the burst fire vs reload is actually great. So it's good bully flanker as well. Tho way more crew dependent them most tier 6 premiums IMO.
