Expecting to get a reward and I already have the HT No.VI. I prefer speedy tanks with a good view range but do not expect whichever will get played much

T-34-85M is the best tier 6 tank so probably pick that one.

I cant recommend enough 85M, its a beast, but that sweed looks interesting with that clip, and I love autoloaders. But I doubt I will unlock tier 5 rewards..

Get 7 days of premium. Tier VI will be [content removed] with amount of T34-85's after this event. It's so easy to get it it's just stupid

 

Atleast that's what I think

 

Inappropriate use of word.

Depends on your style.

 

After they buffed it. The T-34-85M is just flat out better than the tech tree variant. And in terms of versatility the best of the two, and arguably the best pick. Good armor, good dpm and good mobility. And can do any role when top tier. Bully, brawler, flanker you name it.

 

The Swedish has a clip gun with 4 rounds that makes it a good bully flanker if that's your style. With 600 burst damage, it will kill off any lower tiers instantly. And a fellow tier 6 medium if it has already taken a hit. But that 15 second reload will make you suffer if he has a friend. So it won't hold anything alone more so than not. So it's a wolfpack medium if you will to put your clip in anything not looking at you. Or a 2nd line flank fire medium. It can also double as a scout in a +2 game if needed to farm credits that way.

well depends what you want. They have different playstyles.

 

If you like OP tanks with good mobility, good gun and good armor then go for T-34-85M

if you like autoloaders then go for the Strv.

I would say T-34-85M, best medium tank in T6.

Strv has terrible gun depression, it is very akward to play on ridgelines. T 34 85 m has better gun depression and lower profile. It is flat out better tank.

Strv is cool but it's not very good. Get the T34.

Unless they have changed it (have not played it in a long time), expect frequent engine damage in the swedish tank.

Can say that the 42-57 is quite fun to play.

All low-tier premiums lose sense to keep, once you have good crews. The incentive to play them simply disappears. For these reasons, I already sold off my Chi-Nu Kai and STA-2 and will probably sell Škoda T 40 and JapTiger.

 

This does not apply for nations, which have tons of premiums and all 5 tank class tech tree lines. As such, I keep lowtier premiums for USSR and Germany - BT-7 art., LTP, M3 Light, Gr.Tr., Pz. S35, Pz. III K etc... until I do not need them anymore. You play low tier premiums only to quickly boost your crews, after that, they are useless, since if you wish further training your crew, use Tier 8 premiums, which are both better at credits and can train crews.

 

thus, I have trained 2 separate USSR MT crews in my T-29, T-28E F-30, T-34-85M and T-54 mod. 1.

After I grind out crews for all tech trees, these premiums make no sense for me to keep, therefore I sell them to clean up my garage.

 

but to answer the OP's question - T-34-85M is the better one. It's a consistent tank which can fill all roles when necessary (assuming, you already have a decent crew). Strv4257 has the autoloader, but has no gun handling, mobility or armor whatsoever, but it has the autoloader!

But DONT play it as a sniper!! like those tomatoes i see in full tier 6 battles.

If you play skirmishes or want the best, T-34-85M obviously but I also had a lot of fun in the Strv since I like autoloaders.

T34-85M is the (way) better tank. It's quite boring and generic though.

85M is amazing, I get 3 % higher win rate in that tank  than my overall win rate.

I call it a tier 6.5 tank, because it can wreck your tier and below, and still be competitive vs tier 7's, quite a ' bully  ' tank.
