So what's the best arty for T-55A & Obj 260 missions in the current meta?

 

There are various guides out there, but not sure they account for the latest changes to the game.

 

I have GW E-100, T92 & Obj 261 in garage from ages ago, but I don't like playing either one of the although maybe GW E-100 is the best out of the three.

 

GW E-100 is alright but so slow I cannot reposition.

T92 is both slow and inaccurate and long reload.

Obj 261 has a poor arc, poor damage and small ammo capacity.

 

Would I have more fun & better results trying the missions in M53/M55?

I have Lorraine 155 51 researched but not purchased, would that be a good choice for the missions?

Don't tell me to uninstall, I don't generally play arty in randoms, but I need to get these missions done somehow.

right now you don't really need a high tier arty, because most of the mission don't involve damage. And even for those 3(iirc) mission, which involve damage, you don't have to do it directly, your team has to damage enemies stunned/tracked by you. This will change a little bit in the next update, because then you have to cause damage yourself in order to fulfill the secondary condition of each 15th mission.

Most missions are about "stun enemies x times", "stun enemies for x seconds" or "damage enemies x times" and imho the best arty for those missions would be a fast firing, low-mid tier arty, like french or americans arties.

The GW E100 would be my first choice.  I think it is the best overall Tier X arty in the current stun era.  But, I think any of them can be used to complete the missions.  The GW has high ammo capacity, high stun duration, high alpha damage, pretty good reload and aim time especially when you use chocolate.  It also has a fairly large splash area so you can damage/stun multiple vehicles if you are patient and wait for the tanks to get close together.  BC 155 58 is good as long as you avoid wasting shots on Tofu tanks and other super heavies due to the low pen and low alpha damage.

 

I probably would choose the 212a over the Obj 261 partly due to the low ammo capacity.  I have ran out of ammo a few times, especially in Grand battles.  Not many in randoms...but it has happened.  It does need more ammo capacity.

 

But, I think you have to figure this out for yourself.  Try them out on the test server and keep up with your statistics on each.  What gives you consistently good results may be different than what is good for me.  Good luck

Thanks, @Eaglax & @Darth_Clicker, good advice.

Do people generally use food on their arties? 

 

I am constantly strained for credits so I don't use food on any of my tanks - is that just not competitive any more in the current meta?

i complete with Lorraine 155 51

And almoust 3 times on gw panther and crusaider SP

 

You know why is better tier - 7-8  arty ?? because when you hit example Lorraine 155 51  tier X tank (its 2 higher tier than you) you have alot of more exp)

Thats why i complete on tier X game my Lorraine 155 51 (2000k dmg.,2200 stun dmg and 550 track dmg)

I only use food for ranked battles or if I am trying to get a M.O.E.  And then, I try to save my credits and buy them in advance when they are half price. Food, hot coffee etc increases your damage per minute, decreases your aim time and reload time, so it might be the difference between completing the mission or not.  Having said that, I dont think it is necessary by any stretch of the imagination.

 

Since you are credit poor, maybe you should try to complete the missions with a tier VII or VI arty if possible.  GW Panther is cheap to run and it can break even while using chocolate if your team wins.  Higher tiers can too... but it is not as easy.

Would go for 212 or M55, tier 9 is more then enough for them with better MM then tier X arties, and those two have both the splash and damage output to actually do those missions.

I have been trying to do it in the Su14-2 for the 260 - I have managed 3850 stun and been top XP on my team , but we lost so not top XP on both :-( . I have been having good games in it (placed in top 5 for hall of fame in it for October) but cant quite seem to get my team to shoot what i have stunned....  I have come close (2nd place on XP and 3499 stun) with T8 Lorraine, but may switch to M53/55 for a while and see if that works. The 4k damage requirement next patch is going to be a pain - I can do 4k+ but generally if you have done that much damage then you have "stolen" the stun damage from yourself and you will miss out on that part of the mission. It should be easier to complete it as you "only" need the 3.5k stun and to be top on your team, but it will be much more difficult to complete it with honours with the 4k and win requirement. I haven't really tried to do it with my T10 arties as the XP requirement means it is better to be shooting tier 10's with a tier 8 or 9  arty to have a better chance of being top on XP. If the folks out there would just shoot what I stun, I could get the mission done and go back to grinding out the tier X light tanks and Chineese TD line so I can get my technical engineers badge back and keep my arty play mainly for CW & SH - it's actually in their interest to help me so there is 1 less competent clicker in randoms......

I did yesterday Obj 260 SPG-6 and 7 missions with honors using G.W. Panther. First game was tier 9 match at Malinovka and second top tier 3-5-7 at Redshire. I was first at experience in our team for both games. Even got 207 seconds stun at first game what I have tried few times using M53/55.

 

I have done all arty missions with honors for Stug, HTC and T-55A and those missions I used M53/55 and while grinding FV207.
