Inb4 arty cancer clicker noob weight tanker *edited*: Nothing to see here then. Carry on.


I've been playing the German arty line up to G.W Panther. Today I sold it. Around 30k left for the G.W Tiger P. But is it worth giving out so many credits for an even longer reload? Sure, the morser has more damage and splash, but I'm getting really unlucky with the inaccurate G.W Panther just like the lower tiers. I mean, the G.W Panther showed off as the best German arty for me than its predecessors, but I just gave up. People say Americans like the M44 are really good, accurate and have good reload. At the end, I'm awaiting T-92 HMC with the longest reload. "deja-vu", but my god, 24cm gun! I just love shooting dead tanks on common test with it just so I can hear the 24cm shell go DOOOOOOOOIIIIIINNGGGG.


Is the U.S. Arty line worth for me more than for the German?

What do they have that Germans don't? (I can check the stats, but I prefer peoples' experience.

Depends on what you want with them. The US are good all-rounders. Not too long of a reload, middle pen and alpha vs the rest, and the shell arch is not that bad that you can't even hit tanks behind even a small ridgeline, unlike the French. The tier 9 works well with both guns. One farms stuns and is more or less like the elite tier 9 French. The top one smacks them harder for a longer reload. M44 is ofc nasty for a tier 6 SPG. But if you need stun missions and damage missions, US works wonders. 


The M12 is the only one I did not play after the SPG changes. But the tier 8+ and the tier 6 still works better then the GW Panther to name one.

The US line is much better than the German but I don't see any point in getting the T92

I Have both lines.

what i see from tier 6 and up

If you dont have to move I like the German more,most times they have the bigger gun.

But if you have to relocate on the map the Usa line is much better .

For example i played FL with both.

I only took out the German line 1 time the horror it gave me when i had to move to another zone was to much

In my Usa line i could move to another zone no problem

So German big firepower slow moving and you verry big

Usa i think you must see as the good allrounder

I am quite impressed with my M12, which did infact surprise for some reason after the M44 which i loved, still do, especially now I have got it to elite status.


It has impressed me so much that i have completely ditched the stupid idea of grinding the brit line of SPG's, the tier 8 brit arty seemes nothing but a turd where as the tier 8 yank at least gets the option of a gun that can lay down some damage.

I have been playing arty for a while now and started with Russian and German but switched to US.


I have upto M40/M43 (Tier 8) not far from the Tier 9 now, but I am already expecting to hate it and throwaway to only keep, M44 (Tier 6), M40/M43 (Tier 8) and the T92 (when I get there!)... Also note, these are the Tiers that fit with Skirmish vehicles :)


I LOVE my M44 (Tier 6) - tis my goto vehicle for raking in credits when I need them, I do have 4 skills on the crew and makes a huge difference, easily makes me 25,000 to 40,000 silver per battle. The M41 HMC isn't far behind and I enjoyed it but it's relatively low damage has defaulted me to the M44.


I HATED the M12 (Tier 7) - this has to be the worst US arty vehicle, but a necessary grind - I ditched it as soon as I got the M40/M43 (Tier 8) which I am beginning to like and getting used to the reload times, but a good shot and resulting damage make it worth while. Not tho, you will hemorrhage silver playing this till fully trained and a skill or 2 under way.

You want to keep T9, M53, probably the best high tier arty after GC. T92 is ok but not as good as M53.

generally WG was probably trying to balance the lines between. so some tiers of one line should be better then tiers of the other. lots of that balancing was scrapped in 9.18 patch, however.

Having said that, US line has two arties which are the best all around:

M44 and M55/53.  If you have to pick a line - take US.
