So yeah. There's good thanks, there's bad tanks. There's fast tanks and tough tanks.

 

But what about comfort? What tank do you feel is the most comfortable to play as in least restrictive, best flow and of course efficient gun?

 

I have a few favourites, but for tier 8 it has to be the Ravioli aka M4A1 Revalorisé. Man it turns and climbs all smooth, accelerates quite fine, big and clunky but gun angles are just perfect. Extra points to the gun, that shell velocity is pure lightning and it really handles well..

Perhaps the best aesthetic is the gun muzzle break. But yeah. I really enjoy the absolute comfort.

I like that tank too, but the introduction of cars has made it a bad tank. Bad turret traverse and reload time make it a feast for HE autoloader cars.

a comfortable tank is way subjective to the person playing them and play style.

the so called easy tanks i do poor in yet seem to do better in the not so good tanks

example my fav tank i last played is the wolverine.

most people take the top gun but i cant play it with that gun, i like derp guns and play better with them

  • Gun depression
  • Turret armor
  • Good gun handling

 

That's what constitutes a comfortable tank IMO, so basically most american and some british tanks. Sometimes it's a joy to just play a tank regardless of the battle outcome.

Progetto 46 seemed very comfortable to me. Great gun, great mobility.

Somua "SuomenMestaruus"

Is perfect, good gun with 5 round clip, armor to keep it safe from time to time and decent speed.

I'm really getting into my Rev, such a great tank. Beautiful to look at, too.

 

Frontline battles are a breeze in this tank. So much exp and credits.

If only WG modeled it on E8 hull, which Israelis used as well AFAIK.

 

Now for comfortable tank, I'd choose E-50M, maybe 277, Standard B is also very nice to drive.... Also the old tier 10 Brit, FV 215B and Awful panther were absolutely amazing to drive for me, if they ever sell them for bonds, I'd have to pick those up.

Define "Comfortable". Some people define comfortable as being lazy in the back and oneshotting everything the legacy FV tank with OP armor and instakill power seems comfortable enough to many players, others are even lazier than that and define comfortable being able to each Gouda with one hand while making sick plays with the other, and using only 20% of their brain... so in that case I'd suggest SPGs, the wheelchair of WoT.

 

For me it's a tank that allows me to brawl and has average everything, which is why I'm trying to level up my Pershing.

That depends on your style I guess. As for me that's a tank most hate that falls under that list. As it's flexible for my style even in a +2 game. And flexibility is a huge factor for me in terms of making a tank comfortable IMO, not just the gun. And that's the Swedish Leo for me. It's my go-to tank when I'm having a bad day. If that fails.... I go to the SU-100 that falls under that too.

 

Other then that I would put the Standard B up there, Cromwell B, 13 90. Heck even the Luchs. Basically, any tank where I don't care what the MM sends my way falls under "comfortable".
