So I just noticed the crew that came with the M10RBFM French tier 5 TD (reward for something I don't remember) came with a crew that has a first skill available... and yes I know this is only a 2M crewbook.

 

Is there any tank in the heavy / TD line tier 5-8 that is a good/nice/fun tank to play? Or should I just play the M10 RBFM with the crew? I don't want to grind past tier 8 and I'm not interested in tier 1-4.

All suggestions are welcome.

The Bathtub with 105mm looks pretty decent.

ARL V39 with 105mm gun and APCR works surprisingly well. Also, the AMX 50-100 is one of my all time favorites.

bathtub with 105mm, for some reason apcr is basically 10% extra dpm. 300 ap/330 apcr. good sealclub td

v39 with 105, avoid 90mm at all costs, again apcr doing 10% extra like with bathtub, pretty decent handling and good dpm and fairly mobile. good little fun TD, just dont actively poke ridges as it has that tumor

td line ends there aswell, ac46 is about worst t7 out there, ac48 is playable but better options around, same for foch and foch b, they kinda lack pen at higher tiers and armor not working out that great to be frontline unless top tier

 

bdr is pretty good with the 90mm, one of the better t5 tanks, but kinda paperish so best to outtrade and not rely on armor in slightest, loved playing it

arl with 105mm (same as TD gun), one of best t6 tanks i would say, good gun dep so can work ridges as turret isnt barn sized either (unless pre hd stock torret :trollface:), fronthull can block some as top tier, turretsides are overmatched by 91mm+ caliber guns. so dont really rely on blocking shots like a t29. yet really loved playing it

 

m4 45 is utter mixed feel, either like or hate massively.

would avoid 65t at all costs, 50100 is mixed feel, suppose it might act more frustrating due to extremely long rld and derpy gun

50/100 was a favourite. Don't overlook the bathtub at tier 5 and oddly the beetle at tier 6. The BDR with the top gun can be a bit of fun at tier 5 too.

At least they were for me.

Well, everyone have already told you, bathtub.

I really enjoyed playing it, even with stock crew! :D

The T8 TD looks good as well, with the auto gun.

I've never played the AMX 50-100, but it's absolutely fun to play. :) 

Gl!

Not that many, really.

 

Tier 5 is probably your bet best - both S35 CA and BDR can be fun, solid vehicles. Bathtub carries a huge gun with tons of alpha, while the BDR is also the alpha king when it comes to heavies.

 

Tier 6 is, eh, both ARL V39 and ARL 44 can be decent if you use 105, especially if you spam gold. Otherwise, though, they are pretty underwhelming.

 

As for tier 7, AMX M4 45 is pretty bad unless again, you use 105 mm and spam gold. Other than that, it's either a bad Tiger I (with 90mm) or a bad 45TP/T29 (with 105mm and no gold spam), not really worthwhile IMO. AMX AC 46, like already said, is just trash and one of the worst tier 7s out there. It's basically a terrible version of Jagdpanther. Avoid it.

 

As for tier 8...meh. 50 100 has a big clip, but from what I know it can be frustrating to play, it has a plenty of competition now and it really isn't as good as it used to be. AMX 65t is just awful, AMX AC 48 has an autoloader which is cool I guess but it's not really a good or fun vehicle either. Not really worth it.
