KV-4. Wonderful all around armour that can troll tier 10, nice pen on both AP and APCR and 108 ton to ram paper tanks!

My favourite tier 8 HT! :)

AMX 50 100.. and, ofcourse, it's not really a heavy heavy, but i do think against equal or lower tiers it's sheer clip burst is OP.

VK 100 P is the 2nd best heavy I think, i found you want to win games.

TVP VTU, should be classified as a heavy.

Your TVP jokes are worse than the Cuphead fanbase.

VK 100 overperforms as much as the Defender, so there is that. IS-3 is still strong tank even though it is completely unchanged since it got the HD model.

 

I personally enjoy the O-Ho as the derp gun means it can damage tanks that most other tier 8s would suffer to damage.

Emil I and VK 100 -what not. T32 with prem works great too.

Defender is still king of the hill as far as just going in and blasting crapin the face is concerned. Combination of that armor, alpha and mobility is still just supreme.

 

VK 100 P is the juggernaut of tier 8. Rolls over pretty much any tier 8 in direct combat (lower tiers dont need to bother), faces tier 9s on basically even ground and can absorb enermous amounts of punishment while trading really well with its high alpha gun.

 

Caernarvon is a bit harder to get down, but scales exceptionally well with player skill - super nice turret and gun depression combo together with ridiculous dpm means the Caern can rip enemies to shreds like no other tank. Just suffers in peek-a-boom.

 

Patriot, probably similar to the Caern - good mobility, gun handling, decent armor and strong turret, plus premium earnings.

 

IS-3 resisted the power creep quite well and still boosts great gun handling and excellent mobility, which makes the armor pretty troll as the tank can wiggle so well. Gets a very solid turret on top.

 

Emil I as far as heaviums go. Does not work in a heavy role, but excells in medium play and abusing ridgelines. Pumps out damage like a champ, probably the easiest one to get high damage scores in.

 

 

Honorable mention: Löwe

Does suffer a bit due to poor mobility and armor that is only okay instead of rock solid, but boosts very good hull down potential, reliable gun with gold rounds that challenges tier 10s, and great view range. Cannot waltz in like some others, but can be a valuable supporter in basically any matchup.

I thought the Löwe was about the best of those that are available in the tech tree/shop on a permanent basis.

It is. It is just not all around as powerful as the others mentioned, but as far as tech tree tier 8 premiums go, Löwe is one of the best.

I think you are overestimating it simply because it's not a typical pres R 3 times and play tank. Yeah it requires more skill to play but the maximum potential is higher than VK or Defender.

Not the VK100. It stops being good the moment someone loads premium ammo.

The O-HO is quite effective with the 152mm Howitzer. Haven't played it with the new gun.

I like the KV4 better than the IS3, but that's really a personal thing.

Cannot really compare the AMX50100 and the Emil to the rest of the tanks. They're just too different.

In my opinion (with my experience on CT) I played a lot of heavys, but i think my favorite three are:

1. Tiger II ( a lot of people will think that i have brain dmg but i was really doing gud in it)

2. VK100.01P

3. T32
