Been scratching my head over this one. Repeatedly I've said you could grind all missions with M55, which I can say it is the best SPG in the game. Except...

 

  • 2.5K stun dmg - Not hard but not easy either.
  • 1st by exp - Good luck with that.
  • 3K dmg - No prob.

 

^^ About the above, after I corrected my gameplay with clickers, I've started to see more results but I still lag behind the objectives, espcially with the 1st by exp.

 

Big fat gun has a large splash but long reload. The standard 155mm is the other way around.

 

Ideas? I need the final Lady crew member for T-100LT. And because I need a proper tank, the T 55A

darn man, I'd say it is one of those "rng" involed missions, so I'd say just keep doing your doubles in it until you get it

A simple trick is to get dirty if you want the 1st spot. If you know there is a TD camping there etc that has been spotted several times at the exact same spot. Wait a few seconds after he disappears, then fire. As then you don't share the XP with the spotter. Don't wait to long tho, as one shot here and there is still more XP vs waiting for a shot like that. But keep an eye out for those on the map.

 

That's more or less how I did SPG-15 for the Obj, by getting a few shots like that in.

Use the smaller gun, the more shots you can put out the more damage/stun you can do. Load the gold to make up on the splash radius if you don't mind spending the credits. Hunt for kills, if you see low health tanks trying to retreat then nail them. Kills get you good XP.

 

Other than that you need a team that is good enough to let you work but not quite good enough to be effective. You want a nice stalemate situation you can exploit.

It's not too hard if you take a step back and think logically about it. What's the easiest way to actually get a lot of experience? Being lower tier and hitting higher tier.

 

This will make 1st by exp a lot easier but 3k damage difficulty will increase slightly. But it doesn't matter too much because in the end it's luck based. For the Obj. 260 it took me 3 games in the M40/M43 - the only arty I actually kept - to do it. Obviously luck was involved but it's not too brain damaging.

I would say you need a t6 or t8 arty, something that does not see top tier all the time.

Russian maybe ?

I find the first xp to be the easiest of the requirements. With the assist/stun being entirely team dependent.

 

Here’s a SPG-15-3 without honors: http://wotreplays.eu/site/4157947#malinovka-mav75-m40_m43

Mine is too in the replay, with obj 261 (and Ace btw). It is my only arty and this mission was really difficult. Could still work, not so old.

I  did a lot of damage in visual : as said Balc0ra not sharing is the key.

Arty takes no skill, just click battle and then click enemies. If you are lucky, you get the mission.

I did that one for the Obj. 260 (same but requires more stun/damage) in the T92 in a Grand Battle, over 6k damage and around 5k stun, I was just shooting where the other 3 arties were shooting, before they fired, so I got the stuns and insane damage, ran out of ammo completely in the end.

if you do 3k damage and 2.5k stun, you have a very good chance of landing spot 1 in tier 9 arty.

and the best arty for that is m35/55 american tier 9 arty, very fast to relocate, good max speed, pretty accurate, fast reload.

 

once the new update comes then its even more easier to counter arty so you can get a lot of free exp from counter artying alone. good luck tanksers :)

1) play as french spg  B-C 155-58

2) possible if you are the only top 3 tier x in battle.

3) easy to get like you said.

t7 US and t8 French SPGs are very good for this job. I just reached 15th mission for T-55A but i was 1st by experience and had all requirements on several occasions before.

Have not read all the rest of the comments.
However, to get top on xp, it is essential to not be top tier in your arty!
Never try to do it in a tier 10.

I had all the arty missions completed with honours before 9.18. (Thank God!)
I have managed to fulfill the conditions for the final War Gods with a tier 10 arty a few times.
(But those games are rarer than hens teeth...)
I actually did the Obj 260 one in the Fv207 pre 9.18...
Though the M44 at tier 6 used to be the easiest one pre 9.18 to do it in!

(Not posible now of course)


Use a tier 8 or 9 to do it, in a tier 10 game.

Good luck!
