Arty,

Chi to wat? Definitely bad tank.

Arty sucks on random maps. Unless you use 304? But still no. XD
Ain't VK45A, Cent and STA a bit good? Considering they can run faster than the Yank Tough heads and can still look down?

59-16 I have my doubts.

 

That's because you can't really pen 1Ss properly. I tried it before (although I guess I was running full AP).

Too big and lacks armour.

I have used it to good effect.  It has more HP than the KV-1S and pumps out 3-4 shots for 1 of the KV.  It's a sniper that rarely misses.  Needs a good crew with 6th sense and it will do alright.  But it's personal pref, like with a lot of other tanks.

I've found it to be really effective if used to envelop a foe that just pushes down one line. It's got decent legs, so can redeploy if needs be.

 

I've bounced shots from a pair of successive Hellcats, whilst whittling them down to 0. Not sure how it would handle a Crommie one on one. That could end messily. 

 

I'd personally go for it in a skirmish over a Easy Eight or a Type-58. The accuracy and ROF are a boon. Oh, and it weights twice as much as a Hellcat. Makes ramming them so much fun...

VKM is bad, not enough mobility, not enough DPM, no armour and no camo.

Counter argument: consideration of a tank in isolation, vs consideration in context with other elements of a line up.

 

I suspect that our mileage is going to differ, but hey :smile:

The only real consideration for armor in the 6s is can you bounce KV1S AP dependably. I suspect 60 sloped is not in that category.

I found it more effective the lower it is in the tier list...

 

 

So, 9.3 brings in Hellcat nerf and 1S split, as well as new light tanks.

Well, now we await the patch to see the impact of the nerfs and new lights.

So, Light T-54? T49? RU251?

These will be interesting additions...

I'm going to be weird and say: AT-15.

 

I have hilarious success using it against (admittedly, not the cream of the crop) teams that are sufficiently unused to seeing it that they keep bouncing off my front plate while I pew pew 'em to death.

 

It may just be because "pubbing it" is enough to win against those teams, so I submit the AT-15 for more critical analysis. I know it's just a "flavor" tank, and not a serious contender in finding the most efficient tanks. :great::harp:

If it had armour behind the mantlet, I would suggest it.

But alas, it doesnt and so it gets penned every time by anyone with brains...

Given the amount of campers in strongholds - you need to list a tier 8 arty. I think USA & French are best?

Not ideal but you probably won't find me in medium stronk unless the team lineup is of tanks like these:

 

VK 2801

Crommie

VK 3001 d

Type 64

Cats - for now

T-34-85

 

Chopping up cookie cutter KV-1S/cat combos with this sort team is greatly entertaining indeed.

 

I really want to go up against a team that actually isn't running the factory spec team but unfortunately it never comes up.

for T10

 

Setups that i seen in last 60 games

1) 7-8 IS7, 2 arties, 2 bats, and some random tanks (tds, 140s) Should fit fresh clans well, main idea is to play defensive and use IS7s turret armor, bats passive scout on most of the maps and when you get advantage just push till end. (VN54, GVN-T/P, -CNC-) 

2) 12 meds (bats/140) to play as a wolf pack where most have to play just as a platoon and need to communicate with each other 2 FV215b/E5 use them as sniper (VPA use t57 or 50B, but IMHO fv and e5 do better) and one arty (CNC, VPA)

3) 6-8 bat25, 2-4 obj 140 and couple more auto loaders T57/50B (PVP, 5AE) 

 

Can't say which setup is better, but so far best win % on us has VN54 that run very heavy. However best battles are with VPA so far coz most of the time tanks selection is same and games are very fast. 

 

p/s my opinion 

For T8: 

T34, IS6 (50%/50%) with mb 1 arty and 1 light tank. You will roll scrubs even with this setup, and will be able to camp against stronger teams. will lose some games, but you'll be in good profit, otherwise not point playing t8s =)

For every 2 TOG you have pretty much 1 extra tanks worth of hp. It is not to be sneezed at, just laughed at.
