Just curious to what peoples favourite looking tanks are :) 

 

I want to do this by two categories;

 

Favourite looking model 

Favourite looking tank based purely off the base model, no camo, no skins etc

 

Favourite skin

Any of the special skins/preset styles or the reskinned tanks e.g Defender, Patriot etc 

 

 

My personal favourites are;

 

Centurion Action  X for the model and the Alpine Tiger for the skin,

Best looking tank - Waffentrager auf Pz. IV

Best looking skin - Clan Digital style (not digital cammo per season but preset digital style)

Tank: STB-1, if you remove the hideous mantlet canvas. I'd love to see sideskirts on it too, but oh well.

Skin: I'm guessing none of my modded styles count, even if they are just swapping camos and paints around. It's boring but I'd have to go with the Kursk style for the T-34S Specifically, I just like the white lines on the turret tbh (which, fun fact, are a camo scheme apparently just tiled in a very specific way). I'd like the Italian marathon one otherwise, if it wasn't a single colour palette which is only suited for desert maps frankly. Pardon my ranting for a minute but I hate how many styles have only one colour palette  and don't have different versions for different seasons, as WG Has done plenty before. In fact, the new "Assault" styles often just incorporate existing camos with modified palettes.

I think AMX CDC is the prettiest tank in the game. 

 

But I got another one, too. Back when I was playing my first tanks, probably T-34-85 or something, I saw my first IS-3 on the enemy team and my first thought was "Wow, that looks so awesome": I mean the pike nose and the round helmet made it look sort of like a panther or something. On that instant I started grinding towards it.

Model: T95 - why? It looks like it means business, it doesn't mess about. Hell's gatekeeper in the flesh---err...steel.

 

Skin: Alpine Tiger - why? Ferocious Byakko (white tiger) on the prowl, not afraid to run up into the enemy's face and rip apart their arteries.

T-55A is def one that ticks all the boxes for me in the model department.

 

For skin? Alpine Tiger def, but the IS-7 skin from the Xmas boxes def is a looker.

I really think that's a shallow approach, I primarily appreciate a tank for its personality.

 

 

 

 

... and by personality I mean its ability to blow up other tanks, I'll pay some more attention to aesthetics tomorrow :P. I do like the Skorpion G's unique skin, but the model is meh.

Model: ELC EVE 90 It just looks ridiculous and I love it.

 

Skin: Igelschnäuzchen (Grille 15 Skin) It's looks like a prototype that was just throwing out into combat and got some "battlefield improvements". What is not to love about that.

On model, it probably comes at no surprise that I really like the KV-4. Not only as tank, but also its looks. That simple & boxy look. Also like the russian green colour on it, hence it never had camo (except the mono-white winter camo, as I like it as well). Also the fact it is a rather unique model appeals to me. 

 

Everybody is driving those nicely curved tanks. And then you get that KV-4 among them. No chance of mixing up that tank with something else!
Part of why I like the KV-4 model is its simplicity. Hardly any curves, no slopes. Just straight lines. 

 

Prettiest skin ingame? The dark grey of the german tanks. Use it on the Lowe & Maus: seems to fit big tanks the best. not that good looking on smaller ones tbh.

Not too bothered by any of the skins, they look a bit fictional and useless to me. If I do have to pick one, Panzer 58 Mutz.

 

Best looking tanks are a few: T-55A, Centurion 7/1, E 75 and Leopard 1 are my favorites atm.

 

EDIT: also, the Lynx 6x6 is looking charming too.

That's an hard choice! I learned to like some wird looking tanks, like ST-I, because I liked their playstyle and played it a lot. And the choice between T-150, KV-4, ST-I and IS-4 is really hard! I really love the boxi but well armoured shape of the KV tanks, feels reliable and simple, like and old trusted tanks that still do the job. But at the same time I like both the IS-4 chassis based tanks due to the streamlined shapes. They looks more technologically advanced than they actually are. :)

So I would say that for me, KV-4 is the best looking boxy tank while IS-4 is the best looking "modern" tank. :medal:

 

About the skins, I particularly like the Defender skin. Feels so epic! If only it wasn't bounded to such a brainless tank!

I would put it on most of my soviet HTs! ;)

You must be driving a Volvo 850 Estate then ;)

 

My favorite looking tank is one of these: amx 50-100, T32, STB-1, Leopard 1 and Batchat 25t.

 

Favorite skins/colors are the new(ish) skins for the batchat and T57 heavy, the CW reward camo with red in it (see below) and I also really dig the Italian tank color (also below). I have painted quite some tanks in that color.
