As the new tanks for the bond shop has been announced, it's time for me to make a final decision on which T10 reward tank I am choosing. I see no point in saving my bonds for the next ranked season as I've probably collected a decent amount of them by then. I'm also assuming that WG won't add any new tanks to the bond shop in this rotation, as a WG employee implied that "things", other than tanks would still be made available in the near future:

Which should I get, the M60 or 121B? I've read that the M60 is basically an American Leo 1, while the 121B is a Centurion AX without the gun depression. I understand that neither of them are really great (or competitive), so I also value their uniqueness or how fun they are to play as well.

121b is more like the 140 isn’t it? Or so I am told.

If I had to pick one I would go with the 121.
Massive cupolas always put me of a tank

M60 is pretty good, still 6,5 k bonds away from the 121B so dont have a personal opinion on it.

Heard its better than the regular 121 at least.

M60  as I understand it, is a good tank but not as good as a Leo. The 121b is ok, but not as good as etc...
Get either, but don't expect it to change your world, especially when tier x is so ******

I was asking myself the same question. After thinking about which of the two would give me a bit of "something new and a bit special" I have realized that 121B is pretty much the same experience I would get from 140, 430 or even T10 and 277, or any Chinese counterpart. On the other hand, the only "similar" tank to M60 that I have is Patton 48 which is actually quite different, to the extent that they can't be even compared, one might agree. Well, the gap is surely wider than between the 121B and previously mentioned mediums and "heavies".

Went for M60 and haven’t regretted it. Was only worried that I might have spent bonds too early, but seeing what tanks got in the offer this time I got over that issue. Besides, I gathered 16k bonds already, so by the time the next rotation of rewards comes I will have enough to buy something new (not spending credits for tier 8 premiums or equipment.)
