where to start?

 

A tank I've recently top-gunned and I'm absolutely loving the living earth out of it is the T30

it was one of those tanks I've wanted when I started the game, as it looked freaking awesome. Also, it is the first tank that I went against that had the different penetration sounds and bounces. (back before the whole sound revamp, whenever a 155mm+ gun hit you, it had a ver, very meaty pen sound, mostly saying, hey, goodbye to half of your HP mate) I only have 110 or so battles in it, but it is one of my best performing TDs so far.

 

obj 704. only 33 battles played, but my highest damage per battle tank in my carreer(this will change, most likely) the few times I take it out it leaves very big holes in everything

 

E 75. back when I got my first ever prem tank, the SU-122-44, I used to fear every time I faced those things. they were preety much impossible to pen. even today it still remains solid and a very dangerous tank.  while the ret traverse is a bit on the slow side, I feel that it has quite decent mobility for the size it has.

 

M43. my only tier VIII arty and the highest one I've got, I've had it pre 9.18 and post 9.18. always hits hard, and stuns hard

T34. the tier VIII heavy that has the best pen of them all. a hulldown beast, except when going against those swed TDs...

Panther II. I don't take it that often any more, but that l/100 really revived the tank. exceptional accuracy and awesome shell velocity. also, one of the best standard pens for a med in its tier

rhm. borsig waffentrager. Back when I had it I ran it w/ the 150mm gun, as it was just sheer fun playing it. also comes with 334 HEAT shells for problematic armoued tanks.

an anectode for this is when a O-I was attempting to side scrape me in pilsen, and he accidentially showed a bit of his hull...( that AP shell had a field day)

 

T-43. a solid tank, and I quite liked it

SU-122-44. my first ever prem.  3.5k+ dpm..

panther/ M10. nice tenk, got it for one of my bdays. a solid performer

 

KV-2.

strv 74. I'm enjoying this tank quite a lot, denk gundep, but no armout to speak off. it has really good gun stats

firefly. don't take it out as often, but it works as a TD with its really good gun.

 

finally at tiers V and III there are the vk leo (almost three marked) with its amazin 360 dmg burst potential

and the T-46, a nice little light tank.

 

that is a big post lol

I know it sounds weird, but I would say my choice is the tier 6 premium strv, it rocks even as bottomtier:ohmy:

well, the armour is rather bad, but the gun seemes to have decent stats, for an autoloader. (playing the strv and I'm preety sure it has somewhat the same gun characteristics as the m-42-57)

With such a good top gun available on E50 why would you ever use the 8,8? 240 alpha at tier 9 is just a disaster no matter how high the DPM. You just get 1-for-1 out-traded by everything, including T-54s, and as result can't play aggressively at all.

 

Yes, you get tons of DPM but you never get anywhere near it in practice so it's just a pretty paper stat.

 

The thread is about the tanks we like the most. Not the one that are the best.

 

Yes, the 10.5cm is better. But i feel the 8.8cm more engaging, more interesting and funnier to play with.

 

Now that's said. The 8.8cm is way better than you make it sound like. Low Alfa guns are not meant to be used to trade. That should be pretty obvious. As for DPM, what you say is true for any tank with any DPM. They won't get to their true DPM in most circumstances. But we have power on circumstances. We can force, bend, create circumstances where we can use our DPM. It's not allways possible to do. And when it is it will not last for long as your opponents will either try to change circumstances to in their favor or die fast. But this DPM can be used.

 

The biggest negative point for me is the poor overmatch capability of the 8.8cm at Tier 9. That screwed me so many times. Not being able to pen by overmatch where it would have been with the 10.5cm.

T6: Cromwell. Somehow i can manage to have 97% mark all the time. Easy.

T7: medium tanks. T20, KV13,a44. All mediums actually. 

T8: Pr3mium vehicles only, I just cant find reason to play standard vehicles at T8. Elc even 90, m41 blackdog, pilot,t44-100 my most favourites

T9: well,all light tanks apart from wz 132a. I found super enjoyable to play ru251 and t54 ltwt. Also like conqueror, before changes and wz111 1-4 alongside with t10. WZ-120 is my favourite as well,back then I performed very well in t54e1.

T10: Is7, 113, wz 111 5a, 121, e50m, sometimes maus. T100LT ia also fun to play with.

I will make a short list of tanks, and the reason they are my favorite, in no extremely particular order.

T67 - monster dpm, mobility, camo, turreted td, 10 degrees of gun dep

Type 59 - good armor profile, great turret, camo, 7 degrees of gun dep

KV2 - derping is fun

T30 - 750 alpha on a turreted tier 9 tank with good turret armor, manly tank, 10 degrees gun dep

Type 64 - tier 6 t67 with way better view range and stabilizer, 10 degrees gun dep

T32 - gorgeous turret with 400m view range, 10 degrees gun dep

T54 - huge dpm, nice turret and overall armor, mobility, premium rounds, view range, camo, 6 degrees of gun dep

Jagdpanzer 4- huge dpm, low profile, good camo

E-25 - huge dpm, camo, mobility, small

Panther m/10 - nice hp, gun stability, dpm

T25 AT - nice dpm, camo, mobility, 10 degrees of gun dep

T95 - nice dpm, great frontal armor

Bison - the only tier 3 arty with stun and a nice explosion radius and can one shot tier 3s,4s

 

Have fun!

Don't really have one, get bored playing the same tanks over and over, have yet to get a tank over 1k battles.

 

Plus the shifting meta and power creep diminishes many tanks and makes me not want to play them. 

 

Favourite right now is the AMX 30, and the Conqueror is always a tank I like to take out.

Yeah I quite like this too, engine news a hit point buff though. Every hit to the front kills the engine.

Well it *was* the VK2801 with the derp gun but they ruined that for no good reason.

So - it's probably the AMX13 57GF, T100LT or the Luchs.

Its definitely NOT the Emil 1 - which is currently some painful **** in my life. :-)

My only tank over 1k battles, loved it. think I’ve played it twice since the derp removal. Just sits in my garage as a reminder of better times.

It is really good to read the reasons how and why you choose your favourite tanks. It gives some idea to start new lines or play current ones differently. Thank you for all of you! :great:

Very well said there, I'm at Centurion 1 and I love it, it looks bad*ss. I can't wait to finally get 7/1. But in regards of appereance, by my personal taste the STB-1/Type 74 looks the best.
