I want to buy a tier 6 premium but i want it very accurate, because I intend to use it for sniping. I was undecided especially between AC 4 Experimental and Strv m/42-57. What do you suggest?

Why would you want to snipe with something when that something has little impact on the actual game? What kind of fun do you get out of that?

I want to hit the target with confidence, dispersion is really bothering me.

Of those two I think you'd get more utility from the AC 4 as it has a full crew of 5 whereas the Swede is only really useful for training crews for mid-tier Swedish tanks unless you're willing to pay gold to reassign roles. And I'm not sure the AC 4 is a good choice when there's a Sherman Firefly in the British tech-tree that's got the same gun and can mount vertical stabilisers.

 

The most accurate tier 6 premium tank showing on tanks.gg is the Pz. IV S but they're as common as rocking horse poo and I wouldn't hold your breath for them to be on sale again soon. After that the next that's most often seen is the Pudel and the Strv. shortly after it.

 

Really though, when it comes to tier 6 premiums IMO it's better to buy for crew training. The AC 4 wins that one easily but on accuracy there's not much between them.

A true camper bot will find an excuse to uselessly sit in base with any tank and "snipe". Just pick what looks pretty.

Then get closer to what you're shooting.

 

Sniping is pretty useless.

I have the AC4 and it is a good tank, well maybe it could be better but that would take someone elses hand:trollface: I find to use it best is to go on the offensive.......... and survive.:D

Then get closer, FFS. I assume you're also the kind of player who thinks the Tigers for example are best played by camping the redline, 500m from any sort of action?

as a Tiger ace I can tell, that the best results are indeed achieved if you keep your enemies at bay,

but camping is rarely a good option with it too.

Firstly, hank you very much for the long and qualified comment :)

Nearly 3 months i give a thought to buy AC 4 Experimental, but instead of it, i bought M46 Patton KR. I enjoyed playing with it tbh. However soon enough i realized i need something that has more accurate gun. I returned to think about AC 4 Experimental again, as you said crew training makes this tank attractive, unfortunately it has 0.40 dispersion in 100 meters. With equipment barely sees 0.36 and it doesn't sound like reliable. I don't want to buy a tank that mostly misses the target while grinding it this time. Such that, it doesn't important whether it is a good trainer or credit maker. Skoda T40 and Tiger HT in my options too but it seems unlikely.

Buy the Dicker Max, otherwise you are stuck with medium tanks that should be played as medium tanks and not as TD's. That said the AC 4 is the god on ridge lines but it's a versatile tank and shouldn't stick to sniping so I guess it's not for you.

I disgusted while playing USSR heavys. Even i close enough to target, - let's say 100 meters- it doesn't hit anything until facehugging.

I will consider it.

Pz. IV Schmalturm - 0.32

Pudel, Strv m42 - 0.35

Crom B, Dicker Max, TOG II - 0.36

 

Pretty cute tho that you think accuracy is a stat that matters in this game.

Going out on a limb I'd recommend the AC4 Experimental. Not a brawler, not a bad sniper. It's a good support tank. I use mine almost like a TD.

Actually i don't want to camp, I want to approach to enemy from medium range with little mobility, i can say I want to play like a reserve armored force unit: take a support role, to sum up.

If it doesn't that, what matters? Barrel length? Maybe, i guess.

that actually describes the capabilites of Panzer IV schmalturm very well.

Barrel length is indeed represented in-game with a better accuracy value.

Any reason it has to be tier 6?

Tier 7 is a non starter?

I am asking because the Panther/M10 is in the shop. It's very capable, has an accurate gun, full crew compliment required (1 of each for training) and a surprisingly good matchmaker being limited to tier 8, the same as the tier 6's you are currently looking at but it's a tier higher.
