Easy, choose Obj140. This way you open up other options via the T-34 for either T-100LT, T-62A, Obj430U, Obj705A and IS-7 for later on.....

For starters, IS7 line is good. Obj 268 V4, 269 up to ISU 152 is good. arty line is good. Pretty much all the lines are good except IS4, 268, and T62a(inferior to 140 and 430U)

Go for MT line, the one who branches in three good tanks.

Given your preference for heavy heavies, I suggest the IS7 or 705A lines.

KV-85, IS, IS3, T-10 = all decent tanks, plus new tier X which might or might not be OP.

It strongly depend on your gamestyle. USSR got tanks that fullfill almost any role. 

Do you like fast tanks, the med line is quite good and ends on 3 different tanks.

IS-7/277 line got some nice heavyum.

268 line got high alpha TDs where tier 7-9 are quite enjoyable.

While IS-4 is greatly powercrept, the line has some gem that standard HT player may like.

705A is nothing particular, but got a good alpha, so you may also go for it.

T-100LT is said as the only real tier 10 scout, so yoi may want to try it if you're in LT gameplay.

268v4 is OP, so nothing to be add...

K-91 line is going to be a sniping med line with poor armour.

Arty line is a bit meh. The 203mm gun lost all his power and now is basically worst than the 152mm. 261 is quite accurate and fast firing.

Follow what you like more. :)

Most of them are quite new-player-friendly. The IS-7 being the absolute top of that, and as it seems the lines towards the T-62A, Obj. 140 and Obj. 430U are quite nice too. Obj. 268 4 line is overbuffed and prone to giant nerfs when WG got their money. 268 line has some really funny tanks but they can be frustrating and the Obj 268 seems to be not that good these days.

I am so pleased the IS7 is noob friendly:trollface:

Talking of grinding the lines, what about the rusina Td's, from the SU 100 are they any good, ISU 152 etc, as those are line I myself am looking at..

I would suggest the Obj 430U line, actually all the russian mediums are very good but choose this line for more armor and high alpha damage .

SU-152 using the derp with all the ammo type us great fun.

ISU-152, used as first/second line support is good, but not as good as it used to be.

704 is really good, IMO. Good alpha, good pen, works well again from first to second line support. Can bounce something thanks to the 320+mm effective mantlet.

Still don't have 268, but looks a light buff respect to 704, with just a couple of lower stat. Hope those won't affect the performances so much...

The SU-100 is a must, no question, has always been. The SU-152 is also a great tank, combining the fantastic derp gun with good camo and comparably nice mobility. But leads to the wrong branch. So you have to take the way over the SU-100M/SU-101 with the horribly poor gun depression. But if you can handle that, you should be fine with them.

T-34.

 

its a nice tank and give it a 100+ games you'll get to realise whats expected of a medium tank. its easy (ish) to learn, and can rack up damage too even given the tiny alpha. its worth trying it

 

id also say its worth trying out the Chinese variant too
