I think out of the 7000 gold premium tanks one of the previously mentioned tanks would fit my playstyle best but I can't decide which one so I ask for you guys' help

Got both, no contest

FV4202

 

The STA is about to be buffed in the next 48 hours btw

The fv4202 soft stats for mobility are amongst the best in the game and with a bunch of decent crew skills its a really fun tank which can zap tier nines and 10s

 

The STA has amazing heat but not much else to shout about, a bog standard 240 alpha medium with paper armour

I've seen the buffs and they don't seem too substantial to me

Its also getting a 225mm mantlet that wasn't announced.

STA-2 looks really nice now, much comfier gun than the 4202, great mobility, solid DPM for a t8 med. I'd recommend that over the 4202.

Another option is getting the 4202 with gold and then grinding the STA-2 in FL?

You can earn prestige points in frontline by prestiging and after 7 points you can buy the STA-2.

Make recruit account and grind FV4202 (or one of the other available tanks) for free.

STA-2 is one of the 'free' reward tanks for playing FrontLines.

I'd go for FV4202 though both aren't amazing. FV has 226mm standard pen, which is nice and a turret that can bounce something. STA-2 has nearly nothing. Even after the buffs I don't think I want to have it as premium reward tank for Frontline mode.

STA-2 buffs should make it better than the FV4202.

1612 Battles in my 4202, and it's still a Go To even when WG wants to give me the Worst it can in Everything....         

 

Had it out tonight for a Round of Garbage Team Kids and made an E75 regret letting me that Close to him....     Had to go thru a T-10 and T28 Proto to get to him, but despite the Monkies I had on my Team, it was worth it....

 

Have played the STA2 as well, Rental only, but I liked it as well.....      But I think I'd still go 4202 in the end, it's Far better now than it was at Tier 10 I think....

STA-2 got a very welcomed mobility buff, also a shell velocity buff that finally makes the gun more snipey. They also buffed the turret frontal armor and now can actually bounce some shells.

The STA2 is like a sniper now with a big gun improvement

Mobility is ok and the turret can finally ding stuff
