Whatever you can do the most damage in. Td tanks probably unless you can do well in heavies and mediums.

SU-100M-1, once you get to be top tier it's just press 'w' and profit.

Hm, it's irrelevant to say "what tank" tbh. All tanks can get high caliber, today I got it with my M12 arty.

 

Mostly the tanks that you enjoy playing, I even remember getting it once with my bc12t IIRC.

 

But you should say "what tier?" Instead of "what tanks?".

Like, if you play T5, and you become the top tier (T4-T5 matchup), and deal 1.2k or 1.5k damage if I'm not mistaken, you'll get high caliber.

T6 is my favorite, +2k is a guaranteed high caliber in full T6 matchup and when you're top tier? 1.8k.

I'd say avoid T10 tanks for that one. Usually you need to single handedly kill half of the enemy team to get high caliber.

I personally like T9 medium tanks because they're a massive upgrade over T8 mediums, but at the same time they're not all that weak compared to T10 mediums. On top of that teams made of T8 and T9 tanks have considerably lower total HP compared to T10 teams.

It's hard to hunt a HC out of a T10 battle, because usually you face full T10 games, which means a hell a lot of HP to farm. The least HC damage is 6k damage. 

 

But in T5-6 which isone third of that damage, it's way easier to get it, best option is HTs, for me KV-1 snd T 150 were extremely fun and enjoyable to play with them and farm damage, I got my second pool's medal (8 kills, also correct me if I said the wrong name) with KV-1. :P

Tanks with medium to high alpha. High calibers are hard to get in high RoF, low alpha tanks since you have to expose yourself so often to shoot.

Not quite sure about that, my best High Caliber deliverers are the O-I (11 HC in 252 battles, roughly 23 battles for each medal) and the Matilda (27 HC in 636 battles, about 23,5 battles for each medal) and their guns couldn't be much more different.

Although what those two do have in common is being reasonably well armored for their tier.

On average divided pr battle. My Cromwell B has the most. My E25 has the most of the medal tho, but 2x more battles vs the B.

 

But tbh, out of what you have in your garage on those tiers. I suspect a tier 5 derp is your best option. Just get a few of those to high roll, and that's about it.

Easiest way is to play that tier4 special b2 heavy with -1 +0 matchmaking. Do 1000 damage and its almost automatic highcaliber unless someone Else does More, which is rare

My tier 7 tank with the most high caliber per batle  is T20.

My tier 6 tank with most high caliber per batle is VK3001P by far.

My tier 5 tanks with most high caliber per batle are KV-1 and T67 by far.

 

Checking your tanks, probably the easiest tank to get HC is KV-1.

In that range? Surely my T-150. 300 alpha and 2.2k dpm at tier 6 is really good. Pen is nice too and you have a workable armour layout. You basically can oneshot tier 4s and 2 shot tier 5s. Lovely.

704, T95, e100, Kv2, etc... Those work for me pretty well.

But it really depends on your own preference. Take a tank you like and usually do well in. Then the hc will come eventually
