If you want additional info, here goes:

 

- I'm on my way to Obj. 140 ( tier X russian med )

- I'm on my way to Maus ( tier X german heavy )

***So i could use the crew training on both tanks!

 

More additional info:

I don't really have a problem with credit earning, as i own Progetto 46, and Skorpion G !

 

P.S. Thanks for your time spent reading/thinking about this.

 

<< EDIT >> : alright guys, thanks a lot for your responses,i will not do any trade-in, and wait till christmas !

I don't think you can go far wrong with either choice. The Löwe only takes 5 crew while the Maus needs 6 (additional loader) so you'd have to juggle crews for training, the T-54mod1 has the same crew as the Object 140, the commander share the radio operator role (unlike the rest of the line) so it's a better match for training at least.

 

Both earn decent credits, the Löwe is a support heavy rather than a brute-force assault heavy like the Maus and the alpha feels a bit anaemic when nearly every other heavy is delivering 390. The T-54mod1 has good armour for a medium that it pays for with average mobility.

 

I'm tempted to say pick whichever you like the look of more - neither of them really stand out, they're simply solid premiums that can cope with being up-tiered.

Voted Mod1.

 

Löwe is just too slow with low Alpha and too bad DPM to be useful.

Pick both ;)

Both have troll armor but Lowe is too slow to my taste.

 

But seriously that whole idea of selling a tank for half its price is rotten, and all premium tanks get at least a 30% off at some time of the year.

I've only ever seen a discount of 15% on tier 8 premiums, 30% on tiers 6 and 7 and 50% on tier 5 and lower. I understand the reticence to trade in given you only get 50% of the value back but I'll take 50% on a tank I never play to get something new, something I've taken some time to research before buying ... unlike the one I'm trading in. :hiding:

I have both of em, and I can say that neither of em are great ! I received the US T34 (for free) back in the day, and never liked it since it got moved to tier VIII; so yes a trade would be a good idea & between the two, I would go with T-54 proto since it's cheaper and it matches the crew layout of the top tier Soviet medz.

Whichever one is Russian is your answer. Simple.

With 3/5/7 you are going to spend alot of time frustrated by the mod. 1's 190 pen. I'd get the Lowe, you'll find you can contribute to the game much more from bottom tier.

Lowe has good armour and a turret that still works against tier 10. Same goes for pen on both standard and premium round. 

 

T-54mod1 has some workable armour against 190-200 pen guns, but the pen on its own gun is quite bad. Never seen that tank as a problem to face except, maybe, on some tier 6 tanks. Lowe, on the other way, should never been underestimated.

I am on the way to Object 140 too.

 

Don't get T-54 Mod 1, wait for the T-44 100 to be on sale again.

 

The T-44 100 is simply better than the Mod 1 on all relevant aspects. Sure it's armour is a bit worse but in the current MM armour for a T8 Med is worthless. The T-44 100 is far faster and has superior gun handling. If you have both you'll never play the Mod 1 and it will have been a waste of your money.

The Löwe got some good buffs and is a good money maker. For your crew training a Mauerbrecher would be better, but the Löwe is better in all other aspects.

 

As Negativvv and Dava_117 already wrote: The T54 Mods armour is worthless against the tiers it faces, while the gun lacks the handling and penetration to deal damage. Furthermore you lack the mobility to flank and bring your lousy gun to bear.

Lowe is a nice HT, can even stop some TWO stuff when properly side scraping or hull down.

 

And that's what makes the T-44 100 simply better than the Mod 1. The gun handling is exceptional for a T8 tank and the extra speed lets you flank. The gun has no better pen no but it's far more practical.

 

I keep saying it but that's because I'm pretty annoyed about it. Please don't get a Mod 1, I regret buying one without knowing what the T-44 100 was...

One thing: The T54 Mod 1 is per se not a bad tank. It is the match maker which make this tank bad. When you are meeting tier VI tanks and are so top tier, your armor does work and makes this tank a real beast. But most of the time you are one of those nice cheap practice targets for the tier IX and X tanks. But with match maker we are enjoying now, get the Löwe.

I am surprised the poll result is that close!

 

Lowe is the best credit maker that i know of, It got enough pen and armor to hold against the constant tier 10 battles.

 

I guess the mod1 was good once, like 3 years ago.

Trade for Super Pershing, recent buff made this PMM tank OP. 

 

- penetration and dpm of normal T8 tanks or even better, and you will never see TX tank

- troll armor with recent weak spot remove nearly impetratable for bad accuracy and low pen guns

- -10 gun depression

- top speed is 40kmh, enough to get on choke position in those corridor maps

- we can now say Patriot(T26E5) with PMM

I thought the Lowe was supposed to be a monster, seems the German lines really do need some love then,as the Tiger 2 is terrible too.

 

So if you had the choice, T 34 heavy or the Lowe,which one would be better?

 

I have both so that question is just for fun.

Seems legit, I melted down my Mod 1 for a SPershing.

 

Feels kinda like a Patriot except with better MM. e.g it's pretty nice...

None - the 'effective' discount is simply not good enough. Wait 'till Christmas.

 

What will you do if they 'suddenly' buff the T34? It will certainly be in the (far-far) future - but remember that we've had two-three trade-in events before they bothered to fix the PMM tanks. Chances are you'll be playing this game in a year or two, let's face it. :P

That's the thing, there is nothing to say WG won't buff all the older tanks at some point in the future.

 

Only scrapped the Mod 1 because of the T-44 100 is in a very good place...

They are buffing, but some of them are let out. Example Lowe and T34.

 

Lowe got decent buffs, and now hes much better then T34. While T34 is nearly unplayable at the moment
