If you pick anything russian (except IS-4, maybe K-91) you will have best tank in specific class.

Obj430U is the best heavy and medium tank.

^^This olds for USSR tanks.

 

About Germany, Maus and E100 for respectively armour and alpha while E50M is good for ramming memes. Leo1 is up for a buff (in supertest now) so may become good.

 

For USA, T57 is probably the best HT while Patton si the best MT (but being the only american tier 10 MT that's quite obvious).

it really depends what you want the tank to be ''good'' at.

for me 110 is superior to OBJ.252U simply because 110 has gun handling unlike 252.

So. If you want the ''best'' heavy or medium tank you might want to ask yourself: ''What i want the tank to be able to do?''

Do you want a autoloader? -> go for T57

Do you want a Steel wall? -> go for OBJ.252U

Do you want a Sniper? -> Tiger 1 or Panther

Do you want a XP pinjata? -> Tog 2

Do you want a mix of all? -> Super Pershing

Which tier are you interested in?

Russian: Obj. 430u and Obj. 970, T-54, T-44-100, Obj. 430 and T-54 for mediums, Obj. 260, Obj 279, Obj 277, T-10, Obj. 257 and Obj. 252u  for heavies.

US: M48 Patton is decent, M46 patton is ok, the rest is pretty much sub-par. I prefer T57 over T110e5 though.

German: VK 100.01 is supposed to be OP, though I can't make it work. Maus sports very good armour but is situational. At the moment I'd say E-50M and E-50 are the best german mediums but a leopard buff is incoming so that might change.

I think he meant the 113... 

 

I think both the Chinese heavies are better than the 430U, which IMHO is not really a medium tank. Best tier 10 Med is the batchat, all other are worst than the heavy mediums...except for the 907.

 

Sweat spot for medium tanks is Tier 9, not Tier 10, and the best Tier 9 Med is the T55A, which is German. Centurian, T54 and 430 are also good tanks

Compared to the heavy/arty Obj. 252, yeah it's better. The question you should've, or at least i would've, asked him though is where does that 'good' gun handling fit in that list? Is gun handling a class of its own or a characteristic to complement other things on the tank?

 

Sure if the gun handling is super good it can make the tank but in the case of the 110, it simply isn't. Add to that iffy armor, low(ish) alpha and mediocre mobility and you're set for a series of hot 'please buff 110' threads because china numba one didn't meet certain expectations!

Funny, I can make a VK1001 work, but not the E50M. Love my E50, but the E50M just.... doens't.... work....

 

Right now I don't consider any German tier X mediums worth playing. I'll try the Leopard 1 after the buff but I'm sceptical.

 

Leo PTA seems to be a good tank though, I liked it well enough before it got buffed, it's better now that it's buffed, and it's getting buffed again.

 

How's the Object 140 these days, ignoring for a second that it's not a 430U?

OK sure... I certainly did not enjoy mine and surely remembered missing quite so much that I had to do that grind on FL.

It is only me or IS-4 is actually not that bad when you have an atleast 3 skills crew ?

 

The armor work just good against the avarage wot player, they cannot pen it with regular ammo and with HEAT it gets absorbed by tracks. The only tank that I am scared is hulldown S Conq shooting full APCR, other than that IS-4 can deal easly with about anything.
