If mobility is your issue with the T-34 I'd be picking up the prototype.  But the Lowe is a great heavy.  Might be slow but it have no problem shooting from range while moving up.

LOL, OP, you can litterally CAN NOT choose badly as you are trading in the T34. In practice there is NO WORSE premium tank in tier 8 than the T34, so no matter what you trade it in for, you're going to make a good choice.

 

On topic, I only own a mod1, but it's a good crew trainer and not bad for earing credits either. It's a T44 with premium income...(which is why I don't understand why they didn't name it T44 mod 1, but who cares) My platoon mate owned a Löwe and he said it has become great after the buffs.

I think it solely depends on your playstyle.

LOL, as if that will EVER happen...

As far as WG is concerned, the T34 needs NO buff as it has 248 standard pen, good gundep, strong turret (full of weakspots btw) and 400 alpha.

They don't care that the tanks crippling weaknesses make it the worst tier 8 premium possible. Deal with it.

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. 

 

There was 30% discount on T8 premiums this summer, for both bundles and tanks. I think it was not blanket tech tree sale but a few per day. There were non tech tree T8 on discount too -for example T-44-100 was for 30 EUR or so. I remember because I was tempted.

 

Here's the link.

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.

 

I did the comparison thing in game between the two, mod 1 and T44 -100, and I found there to be very little in it,mod has better armour so it seems and the T44 has much better mobility. Makes the choice of which to sell for credits so much harder.

Shame about those weakspots, T30 is full of them too, which I play like the heavy it once was classified as, I think both need an armour buff

The T-44 100 is far better than the Mod 1, it's like running a tank without BiA, full gun skills, food and Vstabs vs something that does...

 

Tanks GG gives you a better idea of tank abilities. The in game comparison misses out soft gun stats and ground resistance.

Re T-44-100 vs Mod 1, the Mod 1 is an exact match with the Obj. 140 for crew skills (Radioman on Commander), the T-44-100 matches the T-54 (Radioman on Loader).

I had exactly the same dilemma and got the Mod 1.
T34 is not bad in certain situations and I had great win rate in it (for me) but I felt useless in most games. That accuracy is complete crap in reality, only the turret armor kinda saves it.

Since I absolutely love the T-44 I got the Mod 1. Yes, it is worse than T-44. Yes, it is much worse than T-44-100. But:
- T-44-100 costs real money. A lot of money. Plus it's on sale on rare ocasions. Mod 1 is essentially free if you have some gold laying around. Yeah you paid real money for T-34 but if you don't play it, it's wasted money.
- Mod 1 has a perfect crew layout for Obj140 (and 430, 430U)
- Mod 1 is still a pretty good tank if you like that playstyle. Same rashan "accuracy" as the others.
