It's tier 6 but M44 is legitimately the most profitable non premium in the game.

The real answer is whatever tank you are good with and find interesting enough to keep playing a lot.

Tier VI is generally the best money maker for standard accounts, tier VII if you play well.

 

KV and PzIV have always been popular choices at tier V, well they always seem to show up in my most killed tanks list.

 

Tier IV heavies don't meet tier VI like other classes do, so worth bearing in mind, though there is a good reason for that.

Damage = credits. So any tier 5/6 tank you can get reliable damage in works. As going by what stats say or what others suggest won't help much if it's not your style or you don't do to well in it. Lights are not the worst either if you are good at farming assist. As they are cheap to run and repair vs say a HT.

 

Personally on my NA account before I got a premium there via an event. I ran Cromwell, Archer and ELC for the most part for income. It worked fine for me and my style that is.

Back in the day they said BDR G1 B is the best credit printer of the standard vehicles and it's even been buffed since that. Also any derp tiers 5-6 should be ok, if you're into that kinda thing. T-150 is one solid HT for tier6, too.

 

edit: and yeah, arty is the best. Bishop used to be fun, dunno how it is nowadays.

Pay attention to Balders - he is wise.

Probably best not to do that at all because if that's your expectation, you're going to be horribly disappointed. :amazed:

KV1 with 85 mm is very good at that.

Not rushing tiers saves credits.
Learning how to play makes credits.
Doing damage makes credits.
Worry about how to git gud first before thinking about what tank to get next.

You are already way too far up the tech tree for your battlecount.

Let's look at some simple FACTS. These are not disputed.

 

You MAKE credits by doing work. You spot enemies, you get assistance damage for spotting. You damage enemies, you get critical hits and you get assistance damage for tracking enemies. You destroy enemies, you cap, you reset and YOU WIN.


These are the ways that you make credits. These facts are not disputed.

 

You SPEND credits on a variety of goods and services. You can SAVE credits by buying as many of these goods and services at a discount.

 

You LOSE credits by NOT spotting, NOT damaging enemies, NOT hitting targets with shells, using consumables, being destroyed and- after all this: LOSING the battle.

 

You are obviously doing far too little of the first section and far too much of the third.

 

For a start: your survival rate is 17.79% For more than 80% of your battles you are having to pay a full repair bill (except on tier I, of course) As you have lost over half your battles, this means 52% of your battles where the credits you make vs the outlay is going to be minimal- You will almost certainly make some credits at lower tiers but NOT lots.

 

Your hit rate is only 50%. I can understand a lot of low tier play with auto-cannons, but basically, half of your shells fired are wasted. As for the other 50%, some of them are not going to pen (zero income) and some are going to hit very low HP targets (poor return for the shell cost)

 

You have 399 battles but have played 43 tanks already. Most of them badly. You can ask all the questions in the world about which tank is best- the simple answer is the one that you play well.

StuG III G, Pz.IV, M4 Sherman, M10 Wolverine, T67, T-34, KV-1...

 

Pretty much most of the tier V tanks.

 

Use those which you really love to play.

Any tank you rarely have to fire premium with and can still rack up decent damage scores. And, as has been mentioned numerous times, is a tank you enjoy playing.
