Hello,

 

I was wondering if I should get the Obj. 140 or the Strv 103B. I do know the Strv 103B is a amazing tank destroyer but I am already about to get a tier 10 tank destroyer and I already have a tier 10 Light tank. So I was wondering if I should get myself another tier 10 Tank destroyer or a tier 10 medium tank. I've played the Strv 103B alot on the test server but for what i've seen the Strv 103B is a great tank but only for a few maps. Most city maps are useless for the Strv 103B. Then the Obj. 140 is a epic tank and you can basically use it on any map. I would really want to get but I just don't know if I actually wanna grind it. Please let me know what you think would be the best for me.

Get the 140, its more multi purpose than the 103B

The strv isn't a bad tank but as you said, it's useless in many maps and many situations. The 140 is a cute little tank than can do a lot of stuff on every map.

 

At tier 8 you have a choice to either go for the T54 and unlock the 140 and the T62a or you can go for the 430 and the 430u.

 

All of them are good except the T62a which is irrelevant nowadays and the 430 gun handling can be disappointing sometimes! :)

Thanks for the help! I compared the stats from the Obj 140 and the Obj 430U and I think the Ob 140 is better for me. The Obj 140 is indeed a little cutie

I was under the impression that the 103B would be usable as a 'battle tank'. It's not. It's great at doing TD missions though, sitting in a bush and clicking away.

 

It will teach you close to nothing, however. Aside from platoons in close cooperation, you'll soon figure out how little fun it is to play. Trying to make a 140 work is far more challenging and infinitely more interesting.

 

(One can certainly argue, however, that at a glance it looks like you'd be more successful in the Swedish wedge.)

The 430u is more like a heavy. The accuracy isn't great but awesome gun handling and the mobility is mediocre but it got armor of the gods. Good luck! :)

The brits tested this thing and it was on par with the Chieftain on firing on the move. The use of two engines, the diesel and the turbine gave it great efficiency!

on the Strv line I am on the tier 9 and I kinda like it. It is russian roulette playing it (RNG roulette). You either do 4k-5k damage without even being spotted or do nothing because you get a map like Ensk and die in the first 2 minutes.

 

on the russian medium tanks I unlocked the 3 of them (obj 140, obj 430u and T-62A) but only bought 430U and waiting for a sale to get the other 2. From my point of view 430U is kinda OP. It has speed, heavy armor and a very good gun. It has superb capabilities of snap-shoting even at far distances. I clearly recomend 430U. Never played the other 2 so I cannot say anything about them.

Object 140 = good for playing a manoeuvrable tank, try and win games.

Strv = good for farming red line damage, much harder to influence win rate as you need to push forward to support the battle and be dynamic, and it does not excel at being dynamic.

Both tanks are lethal in their own ways but let this skill table assist your decision and you decide yourself.

 

On a scale of 1-10, 1 being a not much skill and experience, 10 being high levels of skill and experience

 

Obj. 140 = skill level 9

 

Strv = skill level 2 (with arty being 1)

It depends on your own play-style.

If you like aggressive mediums get the 140,

if you like camping a bush for the whole game get the STRV.
