Are they worth the pain and the grind, I have the At 15 at tier 8, which is the best gun to use on it?

I didn't enjoy that line until the tortoise. The other Brit TD line was more fun to play.

The FV4005 line is awesome and I'm loving it.

Didn't try the Badger one because everybody on the internet says it sucks so ... ^^

Wait untill they release some new english premium td. Only clanwar tanks and a few prem tanks are worth playing.

Charioteer is good, Tortoise is also good, still I don't meet a lot of Badgers but pretty much every game has an FV, dunno why people don't play it, it doesn't seem underpowered or something, might be cause the Tortoise has easier matchmaking because it's tier IX.

Depends if you like that kind of gameplay. I love them, but far more hate them.

The FV is a broken pile of trash. Most arty have better mobility. It plays like you are playing an old CGC (prior to the stun thing) in TD mode. You are completely at the mercy of your team, so don't expect to carry too many games in it. I know I killed my w/r in it hard when I was grinding it to finish a mission-15.

 

The Badger is a lot more fun to play, but the Tortoise is just flat out better tier for tier.

B barrel ofc. It's pricey on XP, but you might as well get it to make the Tortoise grind easier. Vs the 32 the pen difference is not much, and it has less alpha. But over 500 more dpm. And that makes all the difference. 

 

Is it worth it? Well, the AT-15 and the Tortoise are not solid all-rounders. Not even on armor. If you want aggressive TD brawlers on high tiers, then go for the Russian TD line. This is all about the DPM, and the wide gun traverse arch so you can hold corners. As 3,2K and 4K is not bad for a tier 8 and 9. Tier X has 4.1K so not really worth the jump IMO. But on the maps where that DPM shines and can be used. Then yes, IMO it's worth it. But the issue is... it's not always like that.

Charioteer is a nice med/TD hybrid. You get good mobility and a punchy gun but you're squishy. Tortoise lacks mobility but you get a good solid machine that can take hits and mean gun that can murder anything unlucky enough to get caught in front of you. I think you'd do better with something armoured.

Since deathstar removal, I think that the armoured UK TD line became totally uninteresting. They overbuffed armour on all the line still tier 10, while being totally broken against low caliber guns, is vulnerable to HE spam. You're probably better off in a T110E3 for armour and in a Obj268v4 for speed than in a Badger.

Tortoise is probably the best in either line but is SO SLOW you lose the will to live. Charioteer is good IMO.

FV4005 was awesome pre-nerf. After the nerd that reverse speed kills the tank. I have both lines - not great. Go for the JgPz E 100 - much better!

I found it garbage it's good against idiots, but against anybody with 2 brain cells it's a really weak TD.

 

Charioteer is probably the best of the two lines same gun with slightly worse soft stats but mounted on a far better mobile platform and A tier lower.

Ok some interesting replies here, had a game earlier where I actually survived using the 32 ponder, but he B gun is the one to go for is it, well ok I will give it a shot later on, as for strong tier 9 TD's, I do have the T 95 American one, I also have the German (turreted one) and the Russian 263, out of all of those the America none is a beast, the only tank where in one game and the only time) I actually did kill nine of the red team but oh the grind, lol
