Which tank is more effective in battlefield? More versatile, more qualified, player friendly, easy to adapt?

The Panther is an excellent tank with a great gun despite being a bit pew-pew. That said, the Comet is the keeper in my garage as it's a bit more mobile, has much better gun depression and most importantly, doesn't look like an anteater.

Both are good tanks. I liked Comet better.

Comet, the Panther is absolute garbage compared to it.

 

Comet has:

-Great gun depression

-Good mobility

-Great DPM

-Effective turret armor if using said gun depression

-Good gun handling

 

The only thing the Panther has is penetration on the standard rounds. It's top speed is better gun the PtoW and ground resistances utterly trash it's mobility. Gun handling is slightly better but you don't have the gun depression to effectively use it.

I really dislike the Comet, the gun aims so badly at medium to long distances.. the problem is that I also have a Panther M10, whichs feels better in every way.

Both are trash...

comet is just a cromwell with a little bit turret armor but a tier higher..

Panther is just.. just... a toothpick on tracks..

 

But on the other hand,

I've seen higher skilled players doing awesome things in comet.. but never in panther..

 

Totally on the other side..

There is T43.. just awesome... If you decide to use Zis85 gun on it.. with full gold loadoout..

you will have instapens with one in every 1.88 seconds tops..

and you will have the russian troll turret.. and great mobility..

Comet is one of my top 5 all time fav tanks. Panther is on my most hated grinds list. Tho that grind was years ago. I suspect not much has changed.

 

Panther only works if he has distance between him and the target letting the gun work, as the only thing it has over the Comet is fantastic dispersion and great pen. As it has 50mm more pen. Comet is a good all rounder vs it. Turret armor works on a ride line, it has -12 gun depression, lower profile, it has mobility, gun that handles great. Pen might be an issue at times vs the Panther. But it has a bit more dpm.

Comet is preferable to the Panther due to gun depression and maneuverability. T43 is better than both as is the T20.

Panther is lackluster. The vk3002m at tier 6 is the real panther(or something like that) and is better and more fun :)

Comet is good, but Cromwell is just soooo much better on its own tier, it's not even funny.

VK3002m is like the secret sauce of German medium tanks, it really is a hidden gem.

Accuracy on the Panther was awesome, if your target was dumb enough to let you take a dozen or shots at him.

Apparantly my stats say I like the comet as I do average as opposed to just piss poor in it. Once you learn it's not a Crommie its actually fun in its own way

Comet:

 

Bad aim

Crew died often by hit

not sniper tank

Comet is only good if you have full crew+equipment.

 

Panther:

 

Big tank

Slower then comet

Some magnet for op players.

I've recently finished the T-43 grind and while I enjoyed playing the tank, it felt like a T-34-85 moved up a tier. Nothing special and was sold as soon as I was done with the grind because I might as well play Rudy and get better match-making.

Comet, every day and twice at the weekend :teethhappy:

 

 

I like the Panther, although it's still early days but I much prefer the Comet. It's a change from the Cromwell which I guess is why people don't like it as much, but if you can make the change in playstyle it's well worth doing so.

I didn't much like the Panther but looking at my stats on an old account I see I did okay in it, might try it again

 

I am certain I would be a total fail in the Comet.

I liked the panther especially after the dpm buff. Cheap to run no need for premium rounds,amazing sniper but that alpha feels like .... Vents+rammer+optics ,good VR also.You can trade with people if you can land 2 or 3 shots vs 1 against heavier opponents.(theoretically :trollface:).

 

Apcr spamming comet or T-20 should be better.Loved T-43 dont know why.If T 34-1 had less potato gun it would be my favourite.

Doesn't have turret armor anymore since they made it HD, just like 2-3 pixels that can troll, everything else is 100mm effective.
