I mean a tank so out of the game it's just ridiculos.

Mine is WZ-111, cheering for it every day. Awesome hunk of garbage

Manticore. I played it alot on test server and absolutely loved it. I'll get it on my account when Top of the tree happens or I get enough universal blueprints. I would love to own that tank but I can't be bothered to grind it without boosters because the lower tiers are not that interesting.

Foch 155. It makes me regret pressing the battle button every time. It's lacking in every department. It's like starting the game 1 tank down, that's how useless the 155 is. But their is also the minuscule chance that I might hit out of 3 shells in a clip instead of just the usual 1.

I put santa and a helper in my Vic, waiting for the grind. It looks really good, just needs twice the ammo:trollface:

Actually aced that bastard with full HE loadout, it's a fun one for sure! Wish I had played it in its pre-nerfed state, bet it'd be quite balanced with it.

The AMX 40 with stock turret and middle gun, have pimped it with enhanced suspension and Hi-Octane I can do about 30kph on a flat I need a couple more crew skills on the driver though .

The other one has to be the British A45 prem tank it's so bad it's sort of good.

  The one I missed was the KanonenJagdPanzer 90 :(

We all have our guilty pleasures, always loved my duck!

I mean there's plain bad thanks and there's these tanks that just somehow speak to you, "i can do it!"

 

Like ST. Emil for example. Everyone hates it but come on, it has a gun :D

Churchill Gun Carrier. It was out of meta on day one. But I still take it out now and then, as it's still a good laugh. I honestly don't care if I win or lose in it.

Honestly? I like the small amount of ammo. It really forces you to think how you want to use your shots and if you really want to use them. And... how often you do more than 5,000 demage dealt in a light tank? Light tanks are supposed to flank, track and spot.

isn't this one of those "gonna turn into premium" list tanks? daym, need to find it. Yeah seen some rather messed up CPGC (Churchill Proper Gun Carrier, not to be mistanken Conqueror Gundam Compositor) replays and i'm drooling over it tbh:teethhappy:

KV-4. It's 5 meta back in term of performances, but the armour works and have ridiculously high pen on APCR, so I'm happy with it. :)

Italian line and AMX M4 51 excluded, I don't think that I'm playing with any tank which belongs in "meta" category, but Tiger I(it's not hardmode, I know) was always my favorite.

 

After reading all sorts of horrible things about AMX 65T before playing it, that tank was really nice surprise(though ofc it's pretty far from being good). Having gun with excellent standard rounds penetration is not common thing, and for F2P players that is one of the most important stats on any vehicle. In fact, didn't sell it and I'm still sorry for using blueprints on 51 :)

the 65t and 45MLE really don't even count for me, they are actually really good tanks. Even in my Standard B today there was this 45 I just wasn't able to take down cos he was so damn good.

 

But neverhteless, yes. *all* French heavies are the kings of self flogging. They literally scream you can do better!

 

Perhaps this was the sole reason i even made this topic, it seriously made me respect the guy for winning for once with a really underappreciated T7 heavy ( I lold cos i have 4 steel walls with that thing!)

I would have to say probably the STG.

 

Bad view range, rear mounted turret, bad dpm, hideous reload times, sluggish 880 shell velocity especially when compared to the Revalorailgun alternative, papery hull and of course that super fun T8 MM which pits this tank against the most broken and op tanks in the game... and yet, even though I don't play it very often, I actually really love this tank, think it's one of the most gorgeous looking tanks in the game and as such it tends brings the best out in me when I play it. I forgive it all it's failings, it no Progetto or EBR, but it's still a favorite of mine.

 

I think this was it's 2nd or 3rd battle.

 

Spoiler

 

and as I approached the final moments of this battle, I was thinking "Surely this would have been easier with another tank!" so yes, the STG is my most favorite hardmode tank :great:

some clan members had fun recently with HE mode too. I recall meeting it 5 years ago (ish) and it was scary, speed, gun, armour, traverse arrrgghhhh

Low tier French lights, such as the R35. I had a bit of a self touching moment when we got the gift one this winter, and I started touching myself more when I noticed it has no armor...
