Hellcat...bad armor but good cover and speed.

 

T34-85M...it is premium but it is awesome, decent armor, speed, dmg, earnings.

 

M53-m55...the best arty for me in any way, great splash dmg, great speed, cover...etc. With it I can kill scorpion in 1 shot.

Tier 9 would be difficult to pick out only 3. I've got E-50, E-75, VK B, ST-I, T-54, AMX 30 Proto and the M46 Patton, just to name a few. Then you have the Baby Bat, the 13 90, the T-54 lightweight, M53/55, Tortoise and so on ... Way too many good tanks on that tier, to name just 3.

I've put a favourite premium tank in each tier because I could.

 

Tier 5

  • Pz. IV H with 105mm derp - the most accurate and fastest reloading of the tier 5 derp mediums
  • T67 - strong even with a fresh 75% crew, OP once they've got a couple of skills
  • VK 16.02 Leopard - more stable MG platform than the Luchs especially now it can mount vstabs
  • KV-220-2 - KV-3 hull in tier 5 with preferential match-making, broken until enemy realises to shoot it in the turret

Tier 6

  • VK 30.01 P - proper hidden gem, the short 88mm on a mobile platform with some armour
  • MT-25 - pew-pew go-cart
  • FV304 - not the grief wagon it once was and no stun but still great fun to play in the second line
  • Type 64 - mobile light with great view range and decent gun

Tier 7

  • Jagdpanther - classic TD with enough mobility to act as support to mediums
  • Comet - fat Cromwell
  • LTG - weird-looking light that's sneaky and punchy
  • AMX 13 57 - bwahahahahaha pew pew pew!!!

Tier 8

  • HWK 12 - angry Dalek with excellent base view range
  • Charioteer - angry Cromwell
  • IS-3 - I haven't played it but clearly one of the strongest tanks in the game
  • Too many to chose one, buy whatever suits your game and your wallet

Tier 9

  • WZ-120 - heavy medium that thinks it's a medium heavy
  • Leopard PTA - went from hating it to liking it a lot as a result of upgrading only the turret
  • Ru 251 - excellent mobility and HEP
  • T-55A - very little choice but I started taking missions seriously because I want this tank

Tier 10

  • Squonk - great gun handling on a well-armoured platform
  • BatChat - big damage auto-loader on a pseudo-light platform
  • No idea - I only have four tier 10 tanks; you can't get one of them any more (FV215b) and the other is a tricky light (WZ-132-1) that feels confused between whether it's a medium or a light
  • Object 907 - because duh

Tier 5 
T67 - because it's the most fun you can have in a TD
SU85 - because it hurts the enemy so bad

Tier 6

Hellcat - because its a Hellcat

SU100 - because it hurts the enemy so bad

Tier 7

Krupp-Steyt WT - takes some getting used to, but its a great tank. Best sounding gun too

E25 - because I've had it forever and it can unload a gold shell every 2.7 seconds

Scorpion - because everyone ignores it, until they're dead

Tier 8

Rhm Borsig - Dat gun

Skorpion G - sometimes its nice to throw your weight around

UDES 03 - scarily good

STRV S1 - scarily better. And purple.

Tier 9

WT 4 - its my only T9

Slight changes/additions to Strappter's list:

 

Tier 6

  • M44 - supposedly a great credit maker (played it before the changes)
  • AMX 12t - autoloading assassin

 

Tier 7

  • SU-152 - using the 152mm stock gun prove Stalin's power from the depths of hell
  • AMX 13 75 - autoloading assassin

 

Tier 8

  • Object 416 - medium that acts more like a tank destroyer

 

Tier 9

  • T-54 

 

Tier 10

  • Object 140 - if you can't get the Object 907

Alright here is my list:

 

Tier 5

T67 - Cuz sometimes you just wanna kill everyone :bush:

KV-1/KV-1S - For nostalgic reasons, it was my first line. Also, the armor is pretty nice.

T-34/Type T-34 - Best mediums in tier 5, very nice gun

 

Tier 6

Cromwell - Prob the best medium in tier 6

O-I - Fun blowing up crap

Skoda T 25 - OP autoloader in tier 6

 

Tier 7

WZ-131 - a Really good scout with nice alpha damage

IS - same reason as KV-1

Comet - Prob the best medium in tier 7

 

Tier 8

IS-3 - Overal really nice tank

LTTB - Unique scout

 

Tier 9

T-54 - Super strong, if you spam gold

T-10 - Strong heavy that you can almost play like a medium

T-54 ltwt. - Arguably the best tier 9 scout

Why not. I'll do the same.

 

Tier 5

  • M4, solid all rounder regardless of what gun you use on it
  • ELC AMX with the 90mm. I still love and enjoy mine even after the LT nerfs
  • Archer. 2200 DPM and 171 pen, whats not to like?
  • Excelsior. Mobile and as idiot proof as the 220, with equally bad pen. But mobility makes it way more fun for padding. 

 

Tier 6

  • Nashorn. Almost 3K dpm, long 88 and great camo rating when kitted out. It's a fantastic support TD
  • SU-100 with the 122mm. 40 camo rating, armor that works when top tier, 390 alpha on a 10.8 sec reload. I play mine aggressive as all heck.
  • Jumbo with the stock turret and 105. More armor them most tier 6 HT's with a reliable derp.
  • Cromwell B. No need to explain

 

Tier 7

  • Swedish Leo with the 10cm. Yes, I really enjoy this one. Great bully flanker, great scout if need be, and the alpha works to scare most away.
  • T71 DA. A light that did not change much, and became better with the LT changes. A fantastic scout and bully tank.
  • SU-152 with the stock derp. When you have a bad day, just take this out. It fixes everything.
  • E25. Pre nerf TD camo, silly annoying ROF. But most importantly... cheap as chips to run. So profit if high regardless.

 

Tier 8

  • Obj 416. 3K dpm, great camo, even when firing. Great mobility and... a fantastic gun.
  • Charioteer. Mobile turreted TD with the L7 gun. Terrible stock grind. But elited it's one of the more flexible TD's around and a good all rounder IMO.
  • JPanther II. Terrible stock grind again. But great fun for a non turreted TD due to the gun and the mobility.
  • ELC even 90. Yes you read right. I'm having so much fun playing this it's silly. As it's a great bully tank and scout. And this too is cheap as chips to run so profit is always high.

 

Tier 9

  • AMX 13 90. Another LT that became better after the LT changes. As the faster reload made it more flexible. It's a great bully as it's a passive and active scout. I never feel useless in this even on urban maps
  • Tortoise. Yeah I still enjoy this old workhorse. She became even better after the armor changes. Just get in their faces and hold down the button until it dies.
  • AMX 30. A recent purchase. Great mobility, fantastic camo, amazing gun handling, a turret that bounces surprisingly much after the buffs. If you like support meds. Def worth a try.
  • T-55A is the only tier 9 prem I have. Played it for 5 games until I aced it ages ago. Never touched it since.

 

Tier 10

  • T57 HT. Burst damage vs reload is just silly. Lacks in other areas, but it's still a solid all rounder.
  •  430U. No explanation needed. You want a HT that has armor and medium mobility and gun handling with LT view range and good camo? Then look no further
  • S.Conq. Go hull down and rape the ridge line. It's surprisingly fool proof with a great gun then.
  • Foch 155. I prefer this over the Foch B. As it's the only tank I have that reliably rapes the 268 4. close to 300 AP pen. And close to 400 gold pen.

@Rubenioz,

 

For tier 9 I would give more advantage to obj257. For now it's brutal,, but we'll see how long.

Regular tech tree tanks or are you including premiums?

 

Tier 5

M4/Sherman III: Pretty much the same tank just in 2 different nations for most intents. It's a solid performer, the Brit tank has more guns to choose from, but we all know tier 5 meds are derp carriers.

StuG III: Stealthy little thing with a choice of 2 decent guns.

KV-1: It's a big slab of armour at a tier where prem rounds aren't all that common. Personally I like the 57mm as my gun of choice. It doesn't hit hard but it hits often and pens most things.

 

Tier 6:

Firefly: It says medium on the tin, but it's more of a TD. But with skill rounds you can go through the front of an IS-3, which is always fun.

Cromwell (B): Armour is not always armoured enough as you go up tiers, but fast is always fast. Buy the Berlin version if you can for extra credits and xp (plus the special crew)

M4 Easy 8: It's a good all round medium tank. Doesn't really do one thing spectactularly but it doesn't really do anything badly.

Type 64 (Prem): If you're allowing prem tanks then this takes the place of the E8 for me. Good gun, stealthy and the changes to LT MM have really helped.

 

Tier 7

JagdPanther: As has been said, it's a classic TD. Good gun, good mobility, the chance to bounce some shots frontally.

Comet: Far better than the specs would suggest IMO. It's more than a fat Cromwell, I've never felt useless in a Comet even as bottom tier.

T29: It's a hull-down champion (as long as you're arty safe).

Panther/M10 (Prem): A tier 7 med with pref MM, the gun isn't great but it's certainly good enough. Like the Comet, it's better than I thought it would be.

 

Tier 8

Hmmm, apart from premium tanks there's not much reason to stick around here IMO...  Unless you play clan wars etc when there's a definite list of tanks to use.

IS-3: Because it's a stupid tank that is so much better than most other tanks on this tier. (Although I couldn't get on with it and sold it)

M41 90GF: It's a LT from the pre nerf days but with added xp and credit gain.

Lowe: After the recent(ish) buffs it's actually quite a good heavy tank. Plus it's a premium tank and all that brings with it.

 

Tier 9

Not played much around this tier.

 

JagdTiger: As top tier it can be a very effective assault gun, or a good sniper if you hide the hull.

Centurion 7/1: Find a ridge, peek, shoot a hole in something, retreat to reload and repeat.

Tier 5:    Bathtub (french TD) - great gun and unique gunarc

              Pz 4 H - derpy glory

              T67 - sealclubber deluxe ^^

 

Tier 6:    Churchill GC - this tank is unique - it can pen pretty much everything it meets without resorting to prem ammo - an aquired taste

              KV-2  - really a tank in its own battle tier - doesn't matter what it faces, it can always derp it

              ARL44 - really versatile tank

 

Tier 7:   T29 - the hulldown king

             T71DA - nowadays king of light autoloaders

             Challenger - a fast TD with a fast fireing peashooter - or nowadays also with a slower punchier gun - very mobile

             IS2 (chinese) - a more mobile version if the IS

 

Tier8:    LTTB - amazingly durable scout

             T28 prot - armor, big boomstick, modest mobility

            T69  - no armor, no speed, no pen but an autoloader - it is strangely a nice feeling to this tank for me

 

Tier9:    WZ-120

             Type 61

             T95
