I do have S-51 but I feel quite inaccurate, should I just grind for something else? Heard that american arties are quite accurate, what you guys think?

I have SU-14-1 and I actually like it. 53 sec of reload are a lot, but big splash and damage pay out well. If you don't miss ofc. But ususally the bigger the gun, the worst the accuracy, so I suggest french arty if you're searching for accuracy.

French are more accurate, reload faster and can relocate quicker but don't do as much damage per shot and have poor splash radius compared to US.

 

Which set of missions are you on though?

I completed all Obj 260 missions with French and German arties up to tier 9. A lot depends on a mission though. It's next to impossible to splash 3 tanks with 1 shot with BC, I did this one with ease with G.W. Tiger P though.

I have done all 60 with honors and mostly used the Russian arties for it. Earlier on I also used the bishop and 304 for a few missions. If you have RU arty 8, 9 and 10 you should be able to do them all.

I looked at S-51 (tier7 russian SPG) stock gun... it is pretty much same as Lorr 150 50 (tier7 french SPG) upgraded gun. Only difference seems to be that french has little bit faster aiming time and 2mm extra penetration. So I could actually use S-51 stock for more accurate shooting and upgraded gun for splashing missions?

Most missions are based on stun, not damage now anyway. So pen is not gonna matter much. It's all about the stun time, reload and splash. So stock guns is not the worst idea.

I actually saw lots of player using stock gun, for fast firing. That could be a good idea.

Whatever you use go with the smaller gun. Being able to aim faster and put out more shots per minute is far better than the moderate damage boost you get from a bigger gun. Did all the 260 missions with the FV3805 and M53/55.
