KV1, Pz4H, T-34. The T-34 with the 57mm is a monster if you have credits to burn.  With a good crew you basically have an automatic autoloader as you're shooting under every 2 seconds. The gold round has 190 pen which is brutal for a T5 tank but as above, it costs to go gold.

 

 

Have 3 Marked them all and I'm trying to move up the tiers with similar levels of success.

What are the best tier 5 and 6 tanks to play in each nation

 

There are a lot of great tanks at these tiers & which ones you enjoy will depend largely on your playstyle & ability.  

 

For example the t67 american tier 5 TD is generally regarded as one of the best seal clubbers in the game, so if you know what you're doing you can do extremely well in it.  However, it has no armour & a low HP pool so if you're new to the game you can really suffer for it.   What it does have is mobility, good camo, a great gun & reasonable view range.  So you'll need to understand the spotting mechanics & have a decent crew to do well consistently, but if you do you can dominate same tier games & be a real pain for higher tiers .  People will judge you for it though as it's a well known stat padding tank.

 

On the other side there is the kv1 russian tier 5 HT.  It's a great tank to learn how to play heavy tanks in & is arguably one of the easiest tanks to do well in at these tiers.  It has good armour & a decent gun, although as a HT it's fairly slow.  There's also a general bias towards russian tanks in this game, so going down any of the russian lines is not a bad thing.  If you're looking to play higher tiers in the future the russian mediums are especially good.

 

As for the other nations, my favourites were:

 

China: 59/16 tier 6 light - used to be my favourite tank in the game till they removed the autoloader.  Great scout & scout killer.  Damn you WG :(

 

British: Cromwell tier 6 med - fun & fast, but the gun is dodgy.  Stay away from the british heavy tanks at these tiers unless you intend to progress them to higher tiers which are ok after tier 7, but slow & painful up till then.  The British TDs are a bit of a niche with low alpha fast firing guns, the AT line is fairly good for beginners as the armour is fairly troll.

 

German:  Pz4 auf H tier 5 med - play it with either gun, but the derp is funny against most lower & some same tier tanks.  I'd also suggest the vk36.01 tier 6 heavy, but only because it leads to the tiger1 at tier 7, which everyone should play at least once.

 

France: BDR G1 tier 5 heavy - Not sure why I liked this tank so much, but I had great fun in it.  Armour & mobility are a bit meh, but the gun is wonderful & it makes a lot of money.  I used this to grind credits when I was free to play.

 

No point mentioning the other nations as there's no choice of tanks.

 

I'd suggest trying a few different tanks from different nations in different classes of tanks.  Find out what you enjoy & go for them.

 

Please note, this is all my personal opinion & you may well find you enjoy other tanks far more, or that any of the tanks I've suggested really suck for you.  If you wait until the test server is up you can always download that & try any tank you like before buying it in the real game.

 

There's information on every tank in the game here, including useful suggestions on how to play them:  https://wiki.wargami.../World_of_Tanks

 

Best of luck & have fun.

That list is awesome and pretty much all you need. Some of the tanks I've liked but are not included on that list are:

Pz lll/IV which was probably the best all arounder tank on tier5.

AT2 can be fun in a good match up and map with it's broken armor for it's tier. 

S35 Ca is a great clubbing tank with 300 alpha on tier V. 

VK30.01P is one of my favorite tier 6 medium tanks. 

O-I if you're into derping. 

Strv74 has great gunhandling for a tier6 medium. I liked it a lot. 

P43 Bis I liked too, with it's troll armor and nice alpha. And it leads to greater things. 

 

Hard to say what you'd enjoy since you didn't share much of your preferences but out of the top of my head those tanks stand out from the tech trees with some nice aspect.

Such a broad spread for this... so depends what you like playing.

 

I'm a new player so don't have a breadth of experience but my favourites.....

 

Heavy = KV-1 (great to learn in, very forgiving) and then the T-150 (just all round good at everything)

Mediums = P43 and P43 Bis (again, just good all round if a little slow)

TDs = SU-85 and SU-100 (great, great, great guns)

 

Best answer to give is that the best tank is the one YOU like... this will be different for so many people.
