I currently bought the tier 9 Amx 30 tank, love it to bits.

So i got curious about what tank has the best gun handling in tier 9, except TD's, don't care about those.

 

Looking at mobile HT's or Meds with really good gun handling/ don't care about armor, any suggestions?

M46 patton is probably amongst the best (most likely the best) That gun is laser accurate and has some of the best movement and turret rotaton soft stats there is. Also, that gun depression combined with the turret buff makes it excellent on ridgelines.

What do you consider mobile enough?

 

Conqueror has a super good gun, and it's not terribly slow for a heavy tank. Not very fast either, though, with max speed of 34km/h. But it has the best gun handling of all tier 9 tanks, I think.

 

I would go for M46 and T-54 from meds. They are classics and both are still very strong. M46 especially is very comfortable to play.

The new French HT. More mobile than Conq, almost as good gun handling.

Oh man forgot this. I don't have it, but it does seem really, really good.

Are you joking?

 

Gun handling on the AMX is not even slightly on par with conq.

Leo PTA is one of the best tier 9 meds if you know how to play with it..  it's got some huge buffs lately.

It is a very good tank also, but the grind to it so painful.

Never said it's on par...

 

I know while moving and traversing values are way worse, but them being heavies that doesn't matter as much as it would in meds.

Ok ok i see some good advice here. The conq is too slow from what can i see for my taste. T-54 not so keen on it, i like tanks wight good gun dep.

 

So e 50, Leo PTA , Patton all seem great, even the tier 9 French HT seems nice since it looks pretty mobile.

 

I'm working my way to the tier 9 Skoda, but  it's going slow don't really enjoy the T 34-100 that much.

 

The tier 9 british gun any good? That seems like a fairly mobile TD on paper.

Leo PTA, if you miss, it's not the gun to blame. Best gun I've used in this game.

The Patton is nice. It's a bit more "boring" than the AMX30 to me, but a very good tank with a great gun and good dpm. The penetration can let it down a bit though.

 

I really enjoy the Centurion 7/1 as well, love the gun, but it's got bad dpm and poor aim-time. Its mobility is nowhere near the AMX30, so combined with the bad reload you have to think ahead a bit more. Still, it's a great tank, good gun depression and the HESH is awesome to mess with lights, paper td's and poorly armoured meds.

 

IMHO the AMX30 is the best all-round package at tier 9 if you don't care about armour, so maybe you should just try something completely different like an amx 1390 or STRV-103-0 to mix things up a bit?

Good pen, good fully aimed accurracy, good alpha damage and an interesting HESH round 

 

BUT

 

-Poor bloom stats leading to poor aiming time

-Poor reload

-No high pen prem round

E50 is sluggish, and very much power creeped now.

 

Armour on both the E50 and 50M are dreadful. Major buffs are needed to both to make them even competetive now.

 

I would venture to say most of the lights are more useful in the current game than these tanks.

I am sorry, but you coudnt be more wrong.

The E50 is one of the best, if not the best T9 med in the game. The E50M is pretty bad, ill give you that, because its basicly an E50 at tier10.

 

The E50 has prob the best gun handling or atleast a close second to the M46 at tier9.

It has great dpm, second only to the patton.

The gun has the dpm and the effective dpm.

 

Its decently fast, goes 45ish on flat and 60 when downhill.

The armor on the hull is just enough so people cant autoaim pen, they need to aim for the lowerplate or turret. The upperplate will bounce any normal tank. And against tier7s its pretty much inpenetrable.

 

To the OP:

the M46 patton and E50 have the best gun handling in the tier, the T54 and obj430 are also pretty good and if you want something with pen and handling, the amx and type61 are prob the best choice. although the type is dreadfull everywhere else.
