I am about to finish the Referral Program as Recruit.
The tanks to choose from are as for now not my kind of play.
Think the selection (correct me if I am wrong) is :


Sherman VC Firefly
Dicker Max
Tiger 131


On my main account I like playing the Tier I LT.
On Tier II I prefer the Cruiser III.
On Tier III I like the T46 and S35 739.
Tier IV...not really ventured much into there...I'd probably go for a Hetzer, Matilda or PZ IVD.
I do like to snipe rather than doing close quarters fighting.

Unsure if that info helps in suggesting a tank...but...can't hurt giving those infos.


Any suggestions regarding which tank to choose after finishing recruitment ?

I would pick Tiger 131 because of historical reasons or panther m10. I have dicker max, but it just lacks some mobility for me. Kv-122 ain't appealing to me and firefly lacks gun depression iirc which kills it for me.

Panther/M10, pretty good with pref MM, won't meet any tier IXs.


KV-122, just garbage, it is just an KV-1S (before the changes in the tech tree) at tier VII.


Sherman VC Firefly, mediocre at the very best.


Dicker Max, decent, epic 400m view range plus gun depression.


Tiger 131, mediocre.

If you are new player, I would suggest going through the Russian heavy line (T-28, KV-1, KV-85, IS, IS-3...). Most forgiving line since KV-1 has quite some armor. Thus KV-122 for crew training.

But if you prefer flanking with faster tanks, Panther/M10 is a decent choice too.

Both the Panther and the Firefly are excellent snipers. The panther can do more stuff and it got PMM, it doesn't see tier 9s. The Firefly has excellent gold pen so it won't be struggling against tier 8s.


For you i think the Panther will be better because it can snipe and it also got some armor if you're top tier.

As you said you like the support role vs brawling. D-Max or the Firefly, as the Firefly has rather a good pen for a tier 6 med to do that role.  M10 is not to bad, but it has 21 less pen vs the Firefly. So vs higher tiers the low pen rolls might troll it more in a support role. But M10 has a tiny bit more DPM, gun depression and better mobility. Firefly has a tiny bit better camo, view range and pen. So it depends on what aspects you find more important.


Another thing to keep in mind is that the D-Max is from the pre-nerf TD era. So it's view range and camo is high for a tier 6. With good equipment and crew you can get to 450m + easy. So you can do much of your own spotting late game and abuse double bushes.

Panther/M10 might be the best choice from the above.

I would probably pick Firefly as a second choice.

Will look into the Panther/M10 and into the Sherman VC Firefly.

Prefer the Panther as it is beeing said that a Firefly took Wittmann out.
