Idc if it’s premium or not as long I can reach it in time for frontlines

also looking at Lorraine 40t

I have lots of experience with autoloaders on blitz, and I know how to use them; as support tanks. Especially the Lorraine and 50 100

Emil 1, autoloader, great turret, mobile, quite small gor a heavy, great gun depression.

Can't say I enjoyed the Emil in FL. Gun is too finicky, tank is too slow, armor is too unreliable, clip-dump time too slow, and ridiculously vulnerable to pocket arty strikes.

- 50 100 has similar issues with pocket arty, clip-dump time, and aim time, though the mobility is MT-like

- Somua SM has some armor to resist arty and decent clip-dump time, though the mobility will hurt

- IS-3A is the best among auto(re)loaders; it's a premium tier 8 Soviet after all

 

Ayt, should it really be an HT? Autoloader MT/LT/TD are still viable options (AC 48 is a difficult gun platform, BC12t is a bad LT, Bulldog is fat and weak autoloader; best of the lot is EVEN 90 and that's a faint praise at best)

- T69 is slow and the pen is a problem against a common IS-3A or Defender

- Panthera is effective, but outshadowed by its premium counterpart

- Lorraine 40t is a premium so automatically better, plus has speed to dump clip and run to the next repair circle in haste. A bit fat though and is real problematic with arty and porta-arty.

- Progetto has it all: speed, gun handling, auto(re)loader, camo; it's a premium tank after all. Its only problem would be that it's not a Soviet tank, and thus will be overshadowed once WG releases an autoloader T-44 or T-54 or yet another random Object

Already have is3a, and it is powerful, but I was thinking of a true auto loader cos the is3a’s hull armour is non-existent and it’s acceleration is pretty bad.

 

EDIT: Looking at Somua sm due to good armour and decent mobility, great clipping power and awesome pen at tier 8.

I run IS3A first, its ridiculously good. If you have one its a great opening tank.

 

Then Progs/T44-100 or lights

    I still think it's morally wrong so in fact I'm right.

I've been pretty apethetic towards FL, but found exactly what Puggs said above.

 

IS3A for startup, then 44-100 or Prog. For some cap def I'll run the SU-130, but those 3 are just too damn good not to run.

I have been doing OK with the Emil 1, followed by progetto. Occasionally Alpine tiger or T32 once attacking objectives. Have run the WZ132 a couple of times to deal with a wheelie running around in the back field.

 

Gold rounds not really needed due to all tier 8 line up, so reasonable credit returns.
