I want to trade in my FCM 50t and the only tier 8 tanks I have enough gold for are STA-2, Panther 88, M4A1 Rev, FV4202 and Super Pershing. Now I don't really trust tank stats, we all know tanks can behave differently from their stats so advice please? I generally prefer faster tanks with decent camo.

Panther 88 is basically the same just labelled a medium.  In fact they all are pretty much apart from the Super Pershing which is more like a heavy with a rubbish gun.

Oh lord what have we got here...

None of the tanks you talk about have any decent camo values, unless you've got a crew backing it up, and even if thats the case, People will still be able to spot you.

 

If you are looking for a decent camo value, go for the Panther 88 and stay the heck back from the 2st line. Which will be boring game plays to be fair.

I wouldnt trade the FCM in, not just yet. It might be that WG will buff it in the near future. But if you set your mind up, and really really want to say goodbye to that lovely French t0nk, i'd go for the Super pershing, just because of the spaced armour it has. SP seems to be a HEAT magnet and can bounce a lot. But you do not want to be in second line for that to happen, you need to be up front. And its not really fast. But it will out run a TOG II !!!111

 

Once again, my advise would be stick to the FCM, unless you have a good crew available for another premium tank.

Well going by those stats you don't trust they are all worse mediums than the FCM50t, the best would be either the STA2 or the Ravioli.  The choice would depend more on what you have a crew for.

STA-2

Not a fast tank. It's a second line support tank.

 

Panther 88

Not a fast tank but it's a second line medium tank. Unlike sta-2, you can carry games in it occasionally

 

M4A1 Rev

390 Alpha. It depends on how you play. Do you prefer RoF or alpha?

 

FV4202

Fast-ish tank after the buff but terrible gun. Though I have had good games in it recently, the gun is just too incompetent. Again, a RoF tank.

 

Super Pershing

Slow tank with meh armour. RoF tank and definetly not a good carrier

 

In my opinion if you absolutely have to pick one, go with 88 or Rev depending on what you want(RoF or alpha). This is considering you only want it for credit producing instead of crew training.

If you don't need to pick one, stick to FCM. There are rumours that it'll buffed

 

 

Edit:

Here's an FV4202 replay for you:

I'm terribly sorry if I use strong language in this replay. I'm not the calmest little gnome around here.

STA-2 is good all-rounder. M4 Revelation Space has very nice gun.

Keep the pmm tank. It has way better pen than the others.

IMHO M4A1 Rev is the best choice.

high alpha, good camo, cheap bullets. 1 weakness - 200 penetration

M4 rev - Alpha is king. You also get decent gun handling and depresion. You will not feel out of place vs high tier tanks. 

 

If not STA since it has good gun stats and provides comfort. 

 

I have the Spershing and FV4202 and they both suck. Spersh requires too much prem spam. Fv4202 has stupid expensive shells, the armor is still iffy and the gun is cancer.
