I'm tempted to troll you by extensively listing every single mission there is (75x4 for the 1st campaign and 60x3 for the 2nd) and just suggesting a tank for each, but that will end up being as helpful/ridiculous as mentioning a single tank per class like you ask for.

Long story short, some missions are easier with tier 10 tanks, others are easier at the lowest tier possible. Like do 2xHP damage is easier at lower tiers, because your tank has lower HP; it's a significant difference to do 3.4k with VK100 or 6k with Maus. Similar with bounce missions, though the toughest tanks are obviously at tier 10, and in that case taking lower tier tanks, MM will let you suffer with many +1/+2 enemies; add 5% gold all fired at you, enjoy!

 

You can check SaltyJedi page for his suggestions, nicely presented as well (though I am not sure how up-to-date it is with latest tech tree and premium tank releases).

As Spurtung did mention. You need multiple tanks to be flexible enough. Not saying the Maus can't do all of them. But it will take time as he is not agile for some missions. Tho since I did them, lots of new tanks have arrived that can do the job better ofc.

 

Thus why I used anything from the 50 100 to the T57 HT for damage, kills in the first 3 min, or at close range etc. KV-2 for critical hits, 50 100 again for the cap, reset and damage due to speed and burst damage. 50 120 for the ramming mission. Jap HT's for HT-12 and E100 for HT-15.

 

Meds I used Skoda T25 and Chi-Ri for early kills, track damage and hit enemies xxx times missions. Cromwell B for MT-12 and arty hunting. Comet for kills. BC 25t for 4500 damage and HT damage. BC also did 15 for me. 

 

For LT's I used the T49 for anything with damage or tracks with the 90mm due to the ROF and DPM. 13 90 for anything with spotting. 

 

TD's I used the D-Max for 4x your own HP. SU-100 for anything with kills. E25 for anything with hits. And 183 for anything with damage. Tho I used the WT auf E100 for some too.

 

SPG? As stuns was not a part of the deal when I did it. I could even use the 304 for some. But now? Us tier 9. stock gun for stuns. Top gun for damage. S-51 works the same way. Gets a faster reload with more stuns pr min then the tier 9 US. So not a bad option either. Low splash, but grouped up that won't matter.

There is no direct answer to this question. Most missions reguire very specific qualities. This means that you don't need just the one tank per class or nation group, but a variety of tanks. Therefore, it would be best to ask for help with specific missions if you can't complete them.

Doesn't really work like that. It's different for every mission, and it also depends on what tank you're comfortable in. People can say tank X is best for mission Y, but if you don't play well in tank X, it's not gonna happen. Then there's external factors, like how people react to tanks. I did most of the bounce missions up to HT-15 for the 260 in the 277 and E75, simply because I can't be arsed to play superheavies and with those two people still shoot standard at you most of the time.

 

Basically, the first two sets are gonna happen if you just play. The t-55a missions and 260 missions require effort and a decent tank selection across several tiers.

I already completed t 55 a TD missions with Foch 155, all of them. :/

I meant 1 tank for all, like avrage, and you are so genius you know? Where did i say "name a tank fo each mission"?

Sadly NASA didn't send after you. :teethhappy:

What you were thinking isn't necessarily what works in reality...

It would be very hard to do that.  Many of the missions require complimentary features, so some missions are best dun in fast firing autoloaders, others require high alpha tanks, of high camo tanks.

 

Anyway, Salty's page gives good advice on almost every mission.

No, you need several different tanks that are good in different aspects to complete it. For someone who's commenting on other's intelligence you seem surprisingly slow when it comes to understanding what people tell you.

Well English is not my native language, sometimes it hard to understand and sometimes i can understand so easy.

You didn't say it explicitly, but then again your example indicated that was what you were after. Unless you were going for "making no sense whatsoever", that is.

Any advice on the last missions...the ace tankers one.

 

I only have tier IX and tier X regular tanks, plus the ones I'm grinding, and I have premiums, and its being very hard to get any ace tanker in them.

 

So what tier 7 and 6 should I re-buy in your opinion, to get ace tanker.

Yeah my bad because I haven't explain well enough.

But I'm asking this because it's really hard to choose the tanks, for example LTs.

I'm an average player, and still new some kind, so i thouth to use from other players opinions

Isn't it ironic that you try sarcasm first and only when you get called out on your BS end up behaving like a half decent human?

I've done  the ace tanker mission (Germany) with the tier 6 med tank vk 30.01 p and i already have two gun marks on it. :)

You should go for tanks rarely seen in battle.and play them well.

 

Think niches, like the Churchill GC.

Comet is easy to ace if you're not a terrible player. Basically any tank that's not awful in itself, but is pretty bad in the hands of your average potato or aren't played that much. The tier 7 lights like AMX13 75 and wz-131 and were also incredibly easy to ace when I played them, but that was before the light tank changes. Tiger I and II are also pretty easy to ace.
