Curious if either of these are worth the price tag, or should I wait 16 hours and see what comes up next?

 

Despite being the cheapest of the offerings, the Panhard does not appeal to me.

Lorraine 40 t is totally worth it. :)

Primo Victoria is worth it if you are a Sabaton fan ;)

Centurion Mk. 5/1 RAAC is better than PV, IMO

Your highest tech tree tank is the T44 medium on tier VIII.

The general advice to new players is do not buy a premium tank that is above what level you have in the tech tree.

You own a T34-85M which is one of the best premium tanks, tier for tier for sale. Master that one prior to any new purchases.

 

You have German, and Russian tech tree tanks predominantly.

Play a few more tech tree nations, and then pick an appropriate crew trainer for one line you enjoy.

Lorraine offers a unique playstyle to those who haven't tested autoloaders.

Altho i found the long reload helpful as I could review the map and plan my next move. It has zero armour so everything will humiliate you if they land hits. No idea why it has a pike nose lol

Primo is meh, nice enough but very lacking in alpha so no trading shots as you'll lose. The turret and upper hull are not that reliable either for bounces.

Can't tell ya about the PV, but i just bought the frenchie.

Can't say i'm impressed. I feel it needs a buff :P

The gun is totaly useless long distance sniping
The delay between the shots is long - a standard B for instance kills you with his 3 shots before you can get your 4th out in a head on head clash
Only 4 rounds in the mag is to low to get any decent tank out

I mean, it's a fast tank with no armor and pretty big. Not comparable to the bat chat 25t. 

If one of these 3 values would be buffed, i would remommend it. Otherwise no.

The Lorr 40 is a support monster in a pack, pop up and hammer in 1200 damage

but... a 35 second reload so allies essential

Fabulous mobility which is essential to keep up or run away

 

The primo has a great high velocity gun, decent turret and fabby viewrange, but weak alpha

A good support sniper

 

It really depends on your playstyle but the lorr 40 is pretty unique and must be one of the best autoloaders you can get because its so mobile

 

The IS3A has a great gun and I believe the Somua is powerful but they lack mobility compared to the Lorr, it can really shift about so makes a good frontline autoloader too

Thank you for the input, it's a sensible methodology. I probably fall into the category of Collector nowadays, I dread to think how much money I spent on PS4 only for that account to now sit idle - though it can be brought back into use at any time, it's basically an archive of collectable tanks for now.

So long as this game does not go anywhere, I do not mind the same principle here either.

...............more money than sense, perhaps. :teethhappy:

Ah well if you have a higher battle count via the PS4 then the general consensus on PC is the Lorraine 40T is a very able tier VIII medium whilst the PV Centurion is better than the FV4202 Centurion, but perhaps not quite as good as the RAAC 5/1 Centurion, all three of which are for sale. However you already own the Strv m/42-57 Alt A.2  which is an excellent Swedish medium tank crew trainer. The PV comes with a nil BIA crew so that gives extra value to that package as nil BIA crews are worth quite alot of money in real terms.

 

In the French tech trees you are at the AMX ELC bis, at tier V so you are along way from needing a crew trainer for an AMX 30 1er Prototype.

 

If I were you given the AMX ELC bis I would wait for the AMX 13 57 to come on sale. Not only would it train a crew for your tech tree line, it is also a hell of alot of fun to play.

Primo victoria is just a Centurion, viable but not nothing special.

Lorraine is in my opinion, one of the strongest premium tanks if you can utilize it well, because no armor. But if you can adapt to the playstyle, it's very good.

Not everyone's opinion but I don't really like the lorraine. Aim time's too slow, the progetto accomplish kind of same job waaaay better imo.

As for the pvictoria, i like the tank, solid turret, good gun handling, only downside is the low alpha imo, crew voices rocks.

The Lorraine is £33-41 in the shop but if you have Amazon Care Package Charlie you can buy it at £28-41 which is a further 15% off.
