I've finished all 15 LT and MT missions, and most of the TD missions, in the STuG IV campaign now and moved on to the HT missions and up to where I need to take or defend a cap/get 500dmg/win.  My issue isn't the mission, though I don't like how team dependent it is, looking more on what HT is best to use for the missions, as a whole, as I am not really a HT player.  See list below for the tanks I have available, and no I do not have an Obj252u/Defender on my SEA account so please don't suggest it.  I know it is the best, but I don't have it on this account and they are not selling it any time soon. 

 

Tier 4:

Pz B2

Tier 5:

T14, Churchill III, KV-1, KV-220-2, Excelsior

Tier 6:

Tiger 131

Tier 7:

IS-2(B), VK 45.03

Tier 8:

IS-6, T26E5, Lowe, FCM 50t

FCM. It's fast enough to let you rush and help cap or get back to defend. IS-2 B is also reasonably mobile plus is all-around strong for it's tier and benefits from being T7 in the current MM, so it'll be easier overall to play even if the FCM is technically a bit better for actually capping/defending.

Anything that needs 1k damage would be niggly in the B2 so I'd say:

 

1-3, 5, 8 (less likely to run into enough heavies hit points at tier 4), 11, 12 - In any tank but the KV-220 is probably a good place to start (Pref MM, bulletproof hull)

 

4, 6, 7 (manoeuvrable likely to run into stupids), 9, 10, 13, 14 - In the B2 (Ideally platooned with platoon mates working with you):

 

15 Probably needs a tier 8, no one firing gold, no tier 10s and some luck. It could be done in a 6 or 7 but the lower hit point pools make it trickier to do on pure damage and your 6es and 7s aren't particularly bouncy unless you are top tier and up against idiots.

A well-armoured T8 will do nicely. I did TD-15 for the StuG IV and the T28 in my AMX M4 49 without really trying at all.

Turn on encounter mode. Only having 1 cap makes any defend/cap mission easier. Everyone converging on the one location is helpful, especially in a less mobile tank.

 

Look at how many penetrating shots you need to get to meet requirements as well. A high number will make it more difficult. 

 

Generally lower tiers are easier as the quality of your opponents is lower. They have less skilled crews and are more likely to make mistakes you can capitalise on. Especially true for LT missions where the your vision capacity is relatively high.

 

I found this forum post very helpful but it is old. http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/522263-comprehensive-best-tank-for-mission-guide/

If you need info about what tank for missions check this website Link

I highly recommend using Tie 9 to do Stug IV mission like the VK 45.02 (P) Ausf. B or Obj 257 !

All your T8 ones are doable, the Lowe may be the best bet for HT15, it has a great gun and trollish armour.
Pity you don't have an IS3...

If you have T9-TX tanks of the right categories, StuG IV missions basically become auto-complete.

:) That the idea Mr Fram ! No need to torture yourself by using low tie tank to complete the mission ! Grinding and get the right tank for the mission you want is the key,you also can use them for the next 3 campaign.

Thanks for the advice so far, and I'll organize things based on it.

I'm not much of a HT player either, and the HT missions were the last focused on, but I completed a good chunk of the first set with the Löwe, and most of the second set with the KV-85, which I reckon is quite an underrated tank. The first few missions for HT (first set) I completed in the Churchill III.

2nd MoE: AMX 12t, KV-85, M6 Heavy, M24 Chaffee, T-34, T-50, T1 Heavy
