Since you need to have at least 2-3 tanks, which would you pick if you can pick any? Spaghetto 46 is probably number 1, 2 and 2 are probably autoloaders as well and I guess you would pick mediums. What do you think?

  • Progetto also lorraine and pantera can fill that role to some extent.

 

  • Caernarvon AX also caernarvon, patriot and centurion 5/1.

 

  • Skorpion also SU-130PM, borsig and WZ-120. The SU is slower, has better shell velocity and hits harder while the WZ has DPM and some armor.

 

  • 432, ELC, and the 3 puppies (black-gray-green)!

Speed is really important so I've not played much with heavies. The WZ-120-1G FT is excellent, especially for attacking. Decent frontal armour to pull off some bounces from lower pen enemies, fast enough to keep up with the lead push and to reposition, good camo for supporting from range, great DPM, 248 AP pen which is enough for everything at tier 8 and being a TD it gets two ability slots. The gun is derpy so I've dropped camo net and binos for gun laying drive and vents since you're never often alone. With rammer it hits over 3k dpm so can tear apart the big turret things in ~1 minute of constant fire.

Compared to randoms, pretty much every tier VIII is very playable in FL. The FV4202, a tank I dont play much any more is great. Rev is good. Generally just stick to Prem meds with Engineering to maximise credits and tier advancement. Capping is so much better at moving you up the promotions compared to going for damage / kills. Got General in 1 game and only did 4 or 5k damage. Heavies are more playable on the defending team especially at the final objective stage.

listen:

 

I played 10 battles today and got General rank 7 times by using the following tanks:

 

Defender for cap, also for destroying the Bunker gun things

Progetto for farming damage, flanking, spotting

LTTB for fun, flank enemies, spot enemies, get sneaky behind them and farm til they found out your position and yolo you with 3 tanks totally forgetting the cap lol

 

Forget other tanks, If you dont have them, use different ones, similar to them. Dont play Arty, its useless in frontline.

To get high ranks, you must play aggressive, do 10k damage thats all. But use brain. If you can´t, use a TD, but then you get lower ranks.

Any OP premiums. Defender, Progetto, T-44-100

 

any tech tree tanks are very weak as the match is flooded with OP premiums.

 

I use Progetto and T-44-100 - get general almost every game, attack or defence

I use LT-432 all match long.

The perfect tool for FL.

tryed several tanks. Best so far is t-44-100. Also use amx 49 and t26e5. Skorpion didnt work as i expected. Defender/is3a also bc of horrible guns. I was surprised but progetto wast that effective for me too. I guess simply too many targets all around so no time to reload those 3 shots. Didnt try any lights. Today might will try 432. For me so far best working tanks are fast with gun you can trust on and with some armor.

Don't have Progetto 46 but it seems to be very popular in Frontlines, probably for a reason.

 

Played T26E5 as breakthrough/area denial/defence tank, and LT-432 as "medium/light" and T92 just for lulz. All worked well. Many Progetto 46 players seem to have very little experience in dealing with sidescraping tanks.

 

Defender/IS3A are too slow and blind and guns are too crap.

 

WG seems to have removed many of the camper sniper spots from maps or made them harder to use. Most Skorpions shoot once and die almost immediately. They also shoot APCR pretty often, which is quite funny already... what a waste.

 

Played three games, racked one million but this was with a 50% credit booster.

 

Capping and defence points seem to give fastest ranks.

Best ones have: 1. vision/camo, 2. mobility and 3. some armor. So mediums and lights, T-44-100 seems to be very popular, don't have it but T-44 works fine too, LT-432 is godlike and M41 with 90 mm gun seems nice too, STRV S1 is way too slow to use effectively.

 

Progetto-spaghetti, bit meh, can rack some nice damage thou. Lorr40t, dies ultra-fast when spotted.

I'd really say to pick whatever tanks you have the most fun it, but also keep in mind that if you are defending and your zone gets capped, you should run away, and in some tanks you just can't do that. I've been caught in the SuperP and I did not manage to escape (got 1 shot by the arty at the end of the counter). Perhaps I was not paying enough attention to the status of that certain point.

Autoloaders tend to work nicely. So Lorraine 40t, Progetto are nice in this setup. Flanking opportunities are many, so you don't need to load that much gold either.

 

I think you can also go for light tanks, as long as you are aware of the enemies around so you don't get shot from who knows where.

 

Also, don't forget about the repair points, they can replenish hp and ammo as well in a couple of seconds.

Have fun!

I mainly use KV-4 and T-44. 

KV-4 for pushing cap or defend while T-44 to be more versatile and play like a spotter too, if needed.

I used also IS-3 and Tiger2, but not with good results: IS-3 feels too sluggish to push and it's too blind to defend, considering the unreliable armour while Tiger2 get far too many damage from arty strikes so can't hold positions well.

Löwe works fine, as someone said above there is real chances that opponents do not know how to deal with sidescraping tank.

T-44 is good too. Balanced vehicle.

50tp proto has been my fave, even if gun is pretty troll at times.

 

Edit: gonna try tiger 2 and STA-2 also at later point. Usually I take out 2 techtree tanks for grind and 1 prem, rarely more than 3 total so exp is divided more evenly. 1 prem gives nice dividents if I can make it work.

Progetto and T-44

Carenarvon AX and Caernarvon

Udes 03 and Skorpion

 

However, the easiest way to get general is to play arty, especially on defence. Use engineering and position yourself so that you cover two cap points (extra bonus with artillery strike and airstrike).

WZ-132 is just amazing in this mode. I know, is not a premium but I prefer it even over Progetto.

 

It has high dmg per shot and good pen compared to other light tanks + sometimes the turret can bounce shots (not as much as on LT-432) + it is fast + you get 3 FL powerups (or whatever are named) compared to the other tank class taht get only 1 or 2.

It is a medium combined with a light that get the view range, speed and FL 3 skills from the light class but the gun and armor from medium class.
