Here is veteran tip, if you wanna stop at tier 9, anything else is fine but don't touch the Type 4. Not because it's kind of "i'm noob i have no skill" but it's super weak and it need tons of brain and gut (and good teammates and maybe dumb enemies) to play.

 

Things about Type 4 is, its so slow and have terrible dpm with top gun, and become worse if you cant afford to spam gold. So most of the time you rely on bad enemy, and bad map design (:P) that allow you to sit and fire those 300-400 dmg per shot with 20sec reload, sure 1k plus shot happen, but rarely. Good thing its armor are very good, can bound lots of shoot, even gold when you dance it around and almost immune to tier 7. I quite like it, not really like it to keep it, but its not really bad, just not for aggro player. It got me this mission too, been stuck here for so long since its hard solo play for this kind of mission.

Dump 2 shots, hide, wait, dump 2 shots again. It really cuts into your effective DPM in a fight, is not needed in either the TVP or the Standard B (or even T54E1 if it manages to pen), but that's the cost of being an OG autoloader. I once switched back to the 100mm because I got annoyed with the 120mm; went back to the 120mm.

 

As for the 65t, it was a glorious tank in Frontlines, and was truly enjoyable there. Best mix of effective armor, DPM, mobility, alpha, and gun depression at FL because FL is so hilly, and because without tier IX or X guns (or sprem) your armor actually is useful. Missed chance there.

 

Yeah, I was busy grinding out the Pantera in FL. Would have liked to also do the 65t and the T32 if FL had been on longer.

I do reguarly pen light and certain medium tanks like the leo and italian line reguarly, and do 600+ to heavies on their side because i use premium HE. It doesn't require brain to play, but having one makes it better.

Was the Pantera good though? Bought the STA-1 to try to grind for the top gun in FL, then I realized with 275-pen sprem I'd earn more XP chai-sniping tier X'es instead.

 

Type 4 is fun if you know how soft the roofs and floors of the tanks are, or if you know their module design. Would've made the module-skins mod better - had that mod been legal.

​it'll maybe at least have a more consistent gun arc than the O-Ho, which has to find some wonky angles to be able to bring the gun down depending on whichever corner you're trying to bring the gun to bear. 

I think I'll stick to the 15cm derp.

At cost of rate of fire and make Maus looks like a medium tank I've shown the screenshot to my friends and they're shocked. And you don't actually get better overall gun arc, you just get frontal smooth gun arc at the trade for rear blind spot, if someone hug you in the rear in open you're pretty much finished (just like how Centurion can't depress its gun in the rear quarter). 

As for my recommend, WZ-111 1-4 FTW.

Don't mind me, I'm just a green tomato.

Pantera was fine. It's actually very very comparable with the Spaghetto and plays pretty much the same.

AMX M4 51 is pretty fabulous with the stock gun.

T10 and WZ1111-4 for my second picks.

 

T30 with the second to last gun, fabulous having people think they have a long reload to push in........

I would recommend the Wz-111-1-4 as the first option, T-10 for the second, and then the conqueror as the third. The Wz-111-1-4 is statically the same as the T-10 however its trade-offs (mainly the higher alpha) is suited to the current meta and hence outperform the T-10 in most situations.
