From these choices the Defender by far.

Depends on what the FC wants/needs, but Object 252U is a solid backbone to most teams.

LeKpz M 41 90mm GF (Girlfriend) is popular light choice. Should your team be camping then Strv S1 is a solid choice (but only 1 or 2).

Depends on the style your clan plays as If they are defensive then the Obj. 252U Defender is a must, combine this with 1 or 2 M41 LeKpz GF for scouting and advanced warning, 2-3 Strv S1's/UDES 03's a couple WZ-120-1FT are smart as well. Fill up with Russian Prem meds and you should be fine.

As for offensive? Well, take the Russian stuff, the GF's and the WZ's and add Lorraine 40t's aswell. This is what the so called "best" clans use. Yes, it is completely p2w, no it's not fun to face AT ALL.

 

Oke, let's say you don't have the money to buy those prems then the IS-3/IS-M, UDES when defending either the LTTB or HWK for scouting and again, Russian meds for meds. Or replace the UDES for Charioteer when more aggressive.

Most likely the team with prems will win though, because balance.

Unfortunately for you, Defender and Black Dog are the tanks of choice for most situations. From that list the Skorp G, S1 and Lowe, can be useful but very situation dependent. I'd say ask your FC and Clan for their preference, but as you are your Clan commander and there are only 10 of you in the clan, that is kind of moot.

You have 10 tanks from that list, use what works for you and pay attention to the enemy set up and see what tanks and tactics work for them.

 

As you only have those 10 prem tanks at T8, then my advice, for what it's worth, would be to use the Lowe as the heavy and T92 for scouting.

Skorpion G with gold ammo.

 

Not because you'll struggle to pen but to make up for the slow shell.

You want heavies as your main force, most that can brawl like IS3. Then max 2 which need a specific situation to work like a defensive ridge position like a T32 (I was missing the Patriot in your options list above). The remainder should be light tanks (WZ 132, LTTB)  and maybe maybe one med like a Pershing. TD's are only good for defense. Take a T28 prot for that.. At least that can take a hit.

For Skirmishes / Teambattles when you don't know the map you usually have a mix of mobility, firepower and armor:

Defender (IS-3), Patriot (Caernarvon), Lorraine/Somua (50 100), Blackdog (Wz132), Löwe, Skorpion / Wz-120 (only one or two of these)

 

If you know the map (CW, Advance) there are other map- and mode-dependent options like swedish TDs, Vk-100 or even arty.

OK thanks. But now I mainly play with the IS-6. Would he be good for clan battles if I give him a lot of crew skills?

The problem with IS-6 is bad penetration (175/217) in CW you want all the penetration you can have.

You are better off with a standard tech tree IS-3.

You may see IS-6 is SH or CW, but that is usually because there was nothing else to pick.

Defender.

All Defenders and a GF.

If you don't have that. Go with Löwe or IS-3 or a tank you are comfortable in taking out Defenders in.

No. Against the more recent T8 heavies the IS-6 simply can't compete, even with full-gold loadout. And heavies in general don't benefit that much from crewskills compared to meds and lights.

 

Of course if your FC is feeling generous or lacking players he might tolerate an IS-6 (as it is like any other substandard tank still better than an empty spot), but if you're just looking at the tank itself in the current game, an IS-6 will never be picked if there is an alternative available.
