All 4 are good premiums, maybe S1 is more on the meh side.

Skorpion and Progetto need a veteran driver to play at maximum efficiency, Lorr 40 is solid.

Really hard man, all your mentioned premiums are just great :D

 

mediums: I personally prefer proggeto over Lorraine, because its more versatile.

TD: Strv 1 is good credit maker and even I as non TD player enjoy from time to time, but it can be very map limited. Skorpion G is more versatile and overall better I think. Strv is only better than scorp on large bushy TD friendly maps.

Progetto or Skorp G from that list IMO, Lorraine is decent but the gun handling is annoying, especially compared to the Progetto and the S1 is super situational.

LOWE

 

 

 

 

Progetto and Skorp are good, Lorraine 40t is annoying gun handling in pubs.

This Question is tough, just because the Gameplay is different and the money earned everytime skill dependend.

 

Skorp:

Currently quite useless T10s- so crew Training not important

paper and tall (doesnt fit that well in the current HE Meta)

fast and punchy gun - so its quite flexible and can support well

slow AP, so APCR sometimes very helpful for sniping

full rotatable turret gives advantages in city Maps against other TDs

 

S1:

STRV B is quite a good T10 TD with awesome DPM

Accurate Gun + good pen = best T8 Premium sniper (Udes still better...)

Needs no prem ammo - credit making is easier than on the others

good camo

can bounce shoots from guns <90mm reliabliy (cupola can be penned though)

in CityMaps very tough to play, especially against higher tiers which is quite common

 

Lorr:

Batchat is currently a bit behind in current meta, but still a fun tank to play (but needs a skiled driver, i can't bring BC to good use for example)

fast, good pen, good clip potenzial

tall, no armor

Gun Handling not the best (but not bad compared to other autoloaders)

 

Progetto:
Tier 10 ist really strong and fun, full recommandation by me (but Autoloader needs some training, especially when to use last shot - DPM goes down drastically when you used it)

very special autoloader as mentioned above

fast, flexible

good gun Handling

 

For me Progetto is the best, but all are playable - it on you to decice which playstyle fits you the most and if crew training is needed / worth it.

All four are good tank but I only have three of them, still on the fence about the Progetto, unsure whether to but it next time it comes on sale or not?

None of those... Because tier 8 mm.

Oké skorp could hold its own in the mm these days but that's about it.

I'm hearing very good things about the Progetto, though I've never touched one.

For me, Skorp G is comfortable, it's easy to do a lot of damage in that thing (it's equally easy to get into a bad situation though).

S1 can pen pretty much anything so it will help with the money making, but is less flexible than Skorp G.

I've not tried the Lorraine but I think it's harder to play than the others.

 

I'd really say you should add a Lowe to the list, as it is also quite comfortable to play with its pen. Armor also tends to work, and gun handling is not horrible, except the aim time.

If it was possible, I'd sincerely recommend getting a Type 59, but who knows when that will be available. Not seeing tier 10 tanks is really good.

There's his bigger brother though, the T-34-3, which is going to get nice buffs soon (gun depression especially), so you could go for that one too. 

 

Good luck out there!

And just to mention - when you are a good light tank driver - EVEN 90 makes TONS of Credits (because spotting gives credits and you dont need to waste any cost for shells).

I  got a 7 day rent for this little bugger and ... unfortunately ... i love this tank. Needed 50 Games for 1st MoE and made in yesterday 3h Session 3,4 Mio Credits (with Prem Account and 50% Booster).

Additionally its an WN8 Booster as Hell (1,5K Damage are 3,2K WN8 for me)

 

Pro:
Awesome Camo, Clip, better Alpha then regular Tier 8

 

Con:
Bad Gun Handling, slow shells, accelerates like a heavy

 

EDIT: And 1390 is a Keeper, so it works as a crew trainer too

I voted Progetto as it suits my playstyle but you have to find out which one suits yours

Progetto ftw!

 

S1 is a very situational tank. On open maps it is really good but on city maps it is really frustrating.

Scorpion is much more versatile but the camo is quite bad which is frustrating.

Both TDs have great guns and are easy to make money with.

 

Lorraine is a solid autoloader with better burst than Progetto.

Progetto is more agile and sneaky compared to Lorraine, autoreload system is a better version of autoloader imo.

I made a video on the Lowe, maybe see for yourself if it's for you?

Of those listed in the poll, Skorpion due to the huge gun + 360° turret + good mobility. Armor is paper but that's irrelevant when everyone and their mother spam gold ammo. Camo is a bit on the lowish side (Panther chassis) but camo net and full camo crew help compensate.

I miss the Lowe on this poll. Very fine T8 tank that can hold it's own in hulldown positions, with a great pen gun. It's also a bit more forgiving when you made an error.

The tanks listed in your poll are all 4 great tanks in good hands, but they do not tolerate errors, make an error and boom goes the tank (or it gets crippled). Tbh, of the listed, the Strv is the least preferable imo, too situational. Rest can work anywhere (The skorpion TD can work as med, seen players play it like that with great success)

 

So I suppose it comes down to playstyle. If you enjoy autoloaders, the Lorr 40t is your pick. If you prefer a more support single shot med approach, the Skorpion can fill that role. (Bonus, people won't complain when you hang a bit in the back, unlike when you do it in a med). if you like flexibility between autoloader & single-shot option, the Progetto is obviously the choice to go for.

If you like the current MM, then any of those options are good. If you don't like the current MM then none of them will be any good.

i bought the skorpion a few days ago and thought if i should get a refund..

Don't get me wrong the tank is pretty fun ( curios how it will be when i get the crew to 100% + some skills )

But i'm getting the impression that this tank is gonna feel old pretty quick

 

but autoreloading/autoloading seems a lot more fun tbh..

 

for a Lorr 40t, i have a full crew from my B-C 25t, with 3-4 skills each

 

for progetto, i got nuthin' , just like for the skorpion
