This is basically a question about which arty line to grind next but i want an arty which is mobile and rapid firing, so all you good gamers out here.

 

 

Which ones should i go for?

Don't have that much arty but the tier 6 baguette launcher is quite fun to play. You can even outmaneuver a HT with it.

The French line is reasonably rapid firing, for arty. But the American arty line gives you a bigger bang for your buck. Especially when you get to the M53/M55.

Which, in my opinion, is the best artillery piece in the game.

The French stuff sounds like what you're asking for.  Not past Tier Vi with it yet... I hardly play SPGs.

I would say that best line is the US one.

For fast firing and mobility you have the french line from tier 7 and up, sadly their shells are kind of weak specially against super heavies. At tier 10 the russian obj261 is pretty mobile and fast firing too with a better shell than the french one. But not overly impressive though. Best gun in this regard is probably the german top tier but its mobility is bad.

At top tier, for what you say you want i would chose obj261 over bc58 because of the shell and steady reload. But i also like the bc with it's good aim time and accuracy, not to mention the drum capacity which can help you better if assisted damage is your goal. It also has a turret which may help you if you don't want to move for net or binocs bonus. I for one prefer more fixed guns as the minimap has the traverse limits shown. By the way 261 has a very narrow gun traverse which may be annoying at times.

So i don't know, take both?

Issue with French arty is the low pen and alpha combo. Nice for stun missions. But the tier 9 does zero damage rolls vs Super heavies rather often. US tier 9's stock gun is more or less the tier 9 French with a faster ROF and less pen. But with the option to toss in a bigger gun that don't get trolled by thick armor. So I would say the US line, as they are not slow either. But rather a good mix of all things. French have the speed. But lack in other areas IMO.

M44 fast reload and fairly fast to relocate, T 7 & 8 a tad slow to relocate, T9 is fast to relocate with a 32 second reload on top gun. T10 packs a nice punch but sweet spot for me is M44 and M55.

haven't gone down that line yet but I did watch one out circle a jumbo around a rock. I nearly peed myself laughing so hard.

Really doesn't make any difference with the bot program you are using, just choose whatever gives you the best income, which probably means sticking with the M44 tbh.

French have mobility but as noted, the impact can be lacking at times. That said, I've had some decent battles with them and have completed all arty missions up to the T-55A with honours primarily using the French so they're capable. One issue that hasn't been mentioned is that they have the shallowest shell arc. That means the shell is flying faster so it's slightly easier to lead moving targets but it also means it's more difficult to get shots on targets behind cover.

 

I've been impressed with the accuracy of British arty, currently playing tier 8, but they're odd in that you don't get stun until the upgraded gun on tier 7 and that SPG drives backwards, which takes some getting used to. I've only played US arty on my alt and haven't touched that in ages but for a decent all-rounder arty line, it's hard to recommend anything else over it.

Either t7-8-9-10 french, t6 american, and of course the FV304

The reply didn't need fixing, it's just I don't know which bot program the OP is using so it's harder to accurately answer, which is why I went down the income path.

For missions the US arty is best. They're quite mobile compared to other high tier arty except for the french which afaik lack the splash.

 

Also if you like interactive arty shenigans, FV304 is good sport.

If you want speed - French, if you want power - Usa.

Since the arty revamp I can't make this thing work anymore. Used to be good fun, but now all it does is miss. It lands exactly where I aim, sure, but around tier 6 everyone plays like headless chickens on steroids.

Not using any bot program if you are referring to mods, I have the tier 6 Brit arty which I am begging to learn how to play, I have the M44 although the best one I find is the M37, I was just wondering which other lines to grind, but thanks anyways guys for the answers.

As many have said, either French or US are equally adept, with the US coming out on top for me by having the best combination of speed & firepower - especially at Tier IX.

FV304 is a good active arty.
