Hey all! I am soon going to get refferal rewards and was wondering which premium to pick? I need it mainly for fun, moneymaking, completing missions and ofc lvling up my crew.

 

I currently have T34 B, T-34-3, E-25, Caernarvon Action X, Patriot

 

Was thiking of getting T92 or jgtiger for missions since I lack light tank and e-25 is not strong enough for T-55a missions. On the other hand I have heard good stuff about FV although it seems to be powercreeped these days. Which reward would you go for?

Jagdtiger 88 is garbage, do not buy it. With a few exceptions (E-25, WZ-120 etc.) static gun TD's are just artificially handicapping yourself in this game for no good reason.

 

T92 is a fun little light tank.

Mle49 is a rather good tank since it is what the Tiger II is supposed to be and I should have been the regular T8 French heavy tank instead of that garbage truck, the AMX65t.

Not sure what your options are. Fv, you mean fv4202? It's an okay tank, but is it fun? No, the gun handling kills the fun imo. Jt88 is loathed, but I think that's a decent choice nowadays. Surprisingly mobile and fantastic reload/dpm. Massive target and rather weak armor though.

 

I liked the T92, but lt432 and ebr totally ruin it for this small, nimble tank. Gun has nice handling, but alpha and dpm is low.

Urgh FV4202...Excellent accuracy on paper but snap shots about as well as the Skorpion G.

JagdTiger 8.8 is not going to help you with the T-55a missions, even with full gold you struggle to penn things like type4&5

Can confirm this. The weak spot on top of Type 4 is a 'no'. The tiny weak spots on the hull can be penned, but not reliably at all. But against tier 8s the jt works well. Permatracking is fun.

If you meet Type 5 in your jt88, you're doing something wrong.

 

I find T92 rather fun and it should be enough for LT missions, but it's not the easiest tank to play. Mle49 is decent HT, but I see no point of getting it if you already have caern AX.

The best tier 8 premiums are Defender, Skorpion G and Progetto, but i guess they are not available.
Whatever you do, never get the Jt88, it will frustrate you 9 out of 10 battles. And when you alrady have E25 you dont need german TD crew trainer.

It's standard ammo however only loses something like 2mm of penetration over 500m which is unique in this game, it's APCR that basically functions as HEAT.

Not a well known thing but it does help massively.

Sure, but then you tickle the enemy for 150 damage.

 

T92 is fun to play, but it's just very mediocre.

T92 LT essentially has no Gold ammo either. The price you pay for the damage output is utterly bonkers. A Fu gold T92 would bankrupt you faster than a gold firing Deathstar.

I was also considering 112 from what it seems it has very good armor and for brawling decent gun ofc not for any long range shots or snapshots. I am afraid that FV4202 will get me bored fast I love mediums but more like T-54 and its similar chinese versions. I wanna avoid Mle49 because of its weakspot on the top of the turret and I also dont play any french heavys atm and Idk if I am going to any soon

112 is very well armoured for a tier 8 and you get preferential MM so you'll never see a tier 10. Standard pen is bleh.. but you get 250 HEAT pen so it can handle anything you're likely to encounter.

Does it still have preferential MM? I thought they removed it on all preferential tanks and increased their stats?

Yes, Pref MM stayed in but tanks got a buff anyway :izmena:

112 is reasonable since preff MM however the guns on all of those preff MM heavies are utterly garbage. Even with HEAT you struggle most of the time since you will rarely hit where you aim

So after all should I got for that T92 to have it as premium scout for missions and also for american scout crew training? I really cant decide but since I still have AX, T34 and patriot I think I would love to have a little bit of variety which anoher heavily amored heavy wont bring... I am mostly F2P and collected these except for T-34-3 and E-25 by playing therefore i need to take my time and make good decision not to waste my chance for getting another good moneymaker

If you don't have a light tank then T92 would be good as trainer. The american light line is decent.

Skorpion snapshots well.. FV on the other hand, clearly a NO! I've had it as rental and snapshots rarely hit their targets. The snapshots I received from Skorpion G's are disgusting..
