I'm not really enjoying this game any more.  To try a new tangent, I want to try and perform in a specific type of vehicle.  I want to know which vehicles have the best gun handling when stationary, both by known and hidden stats.  As a secondary consideration, of these vehicles, which have the best mobility, and which have the best gun handling on the move?  

 

You can suggest which vehicles meet the criteria, or you can explain how I might research and find this information myself.

 

Thank you in advance.  I look forward to farming damage for kicks.

Super Conqueror and the FV215b have both the best on-the-move accuracy, I think.

American mediums are by far the best in the game for accuracy and gun handling.

Agreed, there is simply no contest.

 

Best gun on the best platform.

 

Best on the move - Maus but don't expect to pen anything, next would be Type 5 in which all you need to do is land the shell.

Marder 38T is simply the most amount of fun you can have in the game.

 

A very close second is the FCM 36 Pak 40 - it has a most awesome gun for it's tier, but it's slower than a dead slug.  (In real life ,this was a turreted tank - with the turret ripped off and an anti-aircraft gun fitted - a very HEAVY AA gun at that ...)  Nevertheless, the sheer joy of one-shotting enemy tanks from the base doesn't get boring, ever.

Swedish high tier tank destroyers. Also the 120mm gun on Tortoise/Conway, that's a beautiful gun, I love that gun.

For me and as far as  I have played the STRV 103B is the best in this sector.

As a secondary consideration, of these vehicles, which have the best mobility, and which have the best gun handling on the move?  

Again, as far as I have played the M48 Patton.

Tier 10 STRV has by far the best gun in the game. Regarding soft stats, the T100Lt is a pretty solid contender.

Don't see much midtier suggestions, so making a plug for two:

 

The german T5 Stug III G Tankdestroyer has a great topgun, very accurate (you can snipe with it, even at range) & the gun on the move isn't bad either, i have chased med/lights with it & still being able to hit on the move. The nice pen + rof for it's tier is also fun. The fact that this stealthy thing is also pretty mobile is just icing on the cake. A hidden gem this TD.

 

The swedish T6 Strv 74 med tank has very neat gunhandling & comes with a small turret-profile. Really enjoy the gun-handling on this tank, very smooth & stable. It's just fun shooting with this tank.

The Hetzer with the 10.5 cm StuH. 42 L/28, gun, if you play it as a medium, is hilarious. 

Along with the M53/M55, mentioned above, I feel, these two are the best guns lb for lb in the game at the moment. 

One for the tier spread, and the other for the sheer 3-face slap it can give.

AMX 30B is really good stationary. Tanks.gg mentions turret dispersion as 0.04. Penetration is not up to scratch, though. E50M has better pen, but more 'normal' turret dispersion.

 

M48, like Mr. Bomb above here has mentioned, is probably the best mix around. Keeps the 390 damage/shot, hovermed gun stats, armor and some gun depression.

Too bad it's so unwieldy.

 

T-100LT should have a tiny edge over the 140/T-62A, but it's really minimal considering what it gives up. Too bad the premium ammo has so low velocity.

The Pak 40 was not an AA gun ten weeks ago, and it isn't an AA gun now. The 'flakbus' we have in WoT did actually have 'FlaK' guns mounted, however, as did at least a heavy halftrack.

Pak is the abbreviation for Panzerabwehrkanone, i.e. 'anti-tank gun'.

 

(...)

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate someone mentioning what the tank actually is - it's not quite obvious since Wargaming put it into the French tech tree (for whatever reason).

 

Anyway, knowing your love for the 7.5cm PaK40(Sf) auf Geschützwagen FCM(f), you might appreciate this demon spawn:

Woah!  Lots of info.  Thanks for all of the suggestions.  It gives me a lot of reading to do and replays to watch.  If anybody has anything to add, it is welcome of course.

Brit at tds from t5 up, but many downsides unless you like being slow and vulnerable. Which I do for some reason. DPM is epic tho
