I want to grind to the ru meds and want to take the most painless route. Hence came here for advice.

I can unlock the KV-13 soon and am on the t34 already. and i have a 4 skill crew from the Rudy. With this info do you recommend me to go through the KV-13 -> A44-> Obj 416 -> T54 -> Obj 140/ T62A or the T-34 -> T-34-85 -> T-43 -> T-44 -> T-54 -> Obj 140/ T62A.

The Obj 416 has a partial turret traverse, is it any good? Which is the more painless grind? Also are there any bad apples which will potentially ruin the grind?


One last question is, if you recommend going through the Obj 416, is it worth going through the obj 430 II to get the Obj 430. Is it better when compared to the other Ru meds or the other 2 are enough,


Edit: just wanted to add that i skip stock grind of the gun but grind the other modules if that alters the advice.

The T-34 to the 140 / 62 route is the most comfortable to play.

The 430 line means you have to go through the a-44 (modules on the outside), obj 416 and 430 v2 (whilst good tanks, are harder to use than standard mess due to no gun depression and rear mounted turrets).

I have the 430 and like it. You have better hull armour and DPM compared to the two mess, but trade it off in significantly worse gun handling.

The 140 is the most rounded of the 3, combining excellent mobility, good armour and gun handling.

Go through both, you'll need all the crews you can get if you intend to get more than one of the 10s (and maybe the tier 9s and whatever else you enjoy playing from that line).


The 140 and 62A are almost identical (the 140 is slightly better but its so close it doesn't really matter), the 430 is a bit worse cause the gun isn't as good but again, minor differences at best.

I find it pretty noticeable tbh. With time, it's pretty close, but its ability to snap shot is noticeably worse.

I went thru the LT route b4 9.18, now at T54 as i lack funds to buy it. Much fun with the MT25, LTTB n T54 lt wt.

T34-85 and KV 13 also capable tanks, got it on the way to the IS 3.

I skipped all the meds in between.

I plan to use those 2 med crews for the T54 and Obj 140, and I still have a spare 100 percent T62A crew from the football mode bunking in the T34.... if I ever get around to buying it.

Obj 140 prolly a priority buy as its popular choice in Tier X CW.

T-54 line is what I went for. No regrets so far. Should point out I came through the T-54 ltwt back before the LT changes.


The Obj 140 is CW meta, so if you're keen to get into CW it's well worth going that way.


I unlocked the 140 a while ago, and I'm less than 10k off the T-62A now. Is the T-54 fun to play? Well, perhaps this will give you a bit of an insight:
