Loathe artillery and hate playing it, But i assume one of these two will be the best for trying to get the personal missions out the way, Which do you reccomend and why? What SPG did you use to complete the missions?

M53/55 because of the big splash. Depends on what mission you need to do. Some missions it's better to have a fast firing one, while others may be easier with a big gun.

It's a matter of luck, not specific arta. I did whole set for obj 260 in M53/55, apart from the last mission. For this, I used stock FV3805. Yes, with stock gun. I did it by choice, even though I had CGC already. Wih food and BIA you can spam stun almot as quickly as you can realod and it aims fast af. For the SPG15 its was the most consistent arta for me. It didn't even take time to do it, like ~20 games, and I was close few times. For damage/kills you need something with a punch.

 

All in all, you need luck and good map.

M53 because 'murica.

And it has 2 gun choices, both of which have their pros and cons.

I'm a pleb in arty (implying doing well in it is a matter of skill) but have had some success in it.

Definitely M53/55 and then just pick which gun you use depending on mission requirements.

USA! USA! USA!

As mentioned 2 guns, faster firing or bigger splash. Frenchie just doesn't have the alpha damage or splash.

I used mostly M53/55 but there was some missions that require you to hit often etc and I had G.W Panther and FV304 for those.

How about Tier8 versions?

Now that WG opened Grand Battles for Tier8 it could be best tier for missions as there is 30 enemies to shoot instead of 15.

 

Last few days I played Lorr 155 51 to finish grind (have it for ages) and 4 out of 5 battles were Grand Battles.

Don't know if it is same for other T8 (didn't play any since GB were opened for T8) but for Lorr 155 51 most of games I got were Grand Battles.

Both are good.

In the end, I downgraded BC to tier 8 cause of front lines and M53/55 is in general better performing. But for some missions you want to have faster reload.

Most people recommend the M53/55, some even using the stock gun with it.

I’ve done them in the M40/43 with honors except 15th.

Stock M53/55 is basically like the 155 55. Low alpha, less pen but a faster reload. Top gun is great on the M53/55 due to the higher pen and alpha vs the BC if you want damage and stuns for the same mission. Or module damage. BC is not great on that tbh. So go for the M53/55, as it's an adaptive hybrid depending on your mission needs.

Considering that the top gun only gives 2 more seconds stuns on a low damage splash. And only 5 seconds on a high damage hit with an 11 sec longer reload. It makes a huge difference if you want to farm assist or stun timers only on tight groups, as ofc the splash is 4m smaller. Then there is nothing better for it. If you want damage, internal module damage or assist and damage, then there are ofc better options.

Most people will say that M 53/55 is the best for missions. Stun missions are easier with the stock gun.

M53/55 and the big gun all the way.

 

If you are using the little gun you may as well use the French arty which is useless.

 

The only other arty worth even trying with the the CGC.
