I've got my S.Conq which i don't really like because of amount of HE flying in games (maybe it has changed after Types getting nerfed) and AMX 50 which feels like it needs a solid buff. Before grinding any more useless lines (at least for me), could you guys suggest which HTs are doing its job fine? It doesn't exactly has to be tier X, just fun to play heavy tanks, possibly capable of doing missions for obj 279.

IS7?

 

I hear IS3 and T10 are both good too...

 

Still tho, I'm about to get the S.Conq and I'm MEH with HTs in general. Big, fat, slow and arty magnets.

 

Might grind the French Autoloader at some point because it's fast but I already have a T57.

I guess russian tanks aren't exactly my pick. I have T10 in my garage and i almost never do at least decent in battle. I was thinking of the new french ht line, any thoughts on that?

You don't want 50b, trust me. Your armor doesn't exist, gun handling isn't that good. The only good thing is mobility, but imho not worth it. Finished it during marathon and had more fun on 50 120.

I'm not sure if i can stand grinding through Tiger 2 (heard many complaints xD) but about 60tp - why "if you're good" and what do you mean by that? I'm on my way to 277 (about 100k exp left) and I think of going further with polish line. Is 60tp hard to play? I'd love some tank with big alpha (useful, unline 121)  but I'm not sure about my skills

Why would you grind tier 10 heavy when there are tiers 11 in game,obj 279 and t95/fv4201

go for Chinese WZ-111 5A and 113.

5A at least is competitive.

Not so long ago I just got 121 and I'm disapointed. Moslty with its depression and overall gun handling. Is WZ any better in that? I mean, 110 was awesome with 100mm, but I'm afraid of bigger potato guns.

its not hard to play, but you can't really yolo in 60tp and expect to live. you'll have to expose your hull as lil as possible and aim every shot, thats why it's not for impatience/newer players. 

 

also 5a > 113 > 121

Playing on hulldown isn't a problem for me anymore. I'm more concerned about sidescraping/brawling. Is it possible with such a weak hull? Let's take Himmelsdorf for an example - I'd love to go and brawl with other tanks under the hill, is it possible or maybe the better option would be going hill, because of obviously hard turret?

60tp goes 7-8 line on himmsels where the heavies/tds brawl. it has a good turret, just go hull down there and win

T95/FV4201 Chieftain. Get a clan and get it next campaign. It's the most versatile heavy in the game with the best turret that cannot be penetrated. As fast as m48 patton has a 410 base view range and enjoy it until they add challenger 2 :)

I'd say the best tech tree HTs are S.Conq, 277 and WZ 5A. I guess it's mostly a question of preference in play style.

 

On tier 9 really like the T10 and AMX M4 51. Really unfortunate that the tier 10 french one is such a letdown.

amx 50B is different in play style compare to t57 as it is quite mobile

both fun to play

IS-7 is worth the grind and is very nice t8 and up

IS-4 is fun on a few maps but pretty useless other than that.

T110E5 is still pretty decent but there are many better heavies

that's what I can tell from my own experience

 

apart from that I can say what I hear and see.

Obj. 277 seems to be great from what I heard

also the Chinese WZ-11 model 5A

if you want another autoloader there is also the Kranvagn which has the best gun depression in game and a pretty much impenetrable turret
