What is, in your opinion, the best money making tank you've ever seen/played in WoT.

Lowes make the most creds by far hence the reason they raised the price

PzIv if you are a good sniper player is a good money maker, around 12-13k profit/battle

EDIT: with a prem account it's more than 20k/game

The Leopard can do alright (I'm guessing the T-50 is similar, but I don't have one). The consensus on the Chaffee, T-50-2, and VK2801 are that they approach Tiers 7 & 8 (probably closer to 8) in profit/loss, so tighter profit margins and not great for farming credits.

KV tier 5. Jumbo Sherman, Easy-8 or Vk3601H for 6, T-29 or IS or Tiger P... maybe Panther.... :Smile_harp:

Sherman is my favorite though!!! I get alot of Creds on that think. :Smile-izmena:


These are the NON Prems... I think T-34 will be a good earner though!

Since I have a type 59. And my friends got a Lowe. We have noticed the best money making tank in World of tanks is the Lowe. The best for exp and pretty good for credits is the type.

The real question should be, what will be the best earner after the change in economics.  My vote would be the KV with +18%  income boost.

Can someone give me a ball park credits earned from a decent lowe and a decent KV-5?

I have heard lowes make 50-60k in a decent match and can top 100k+ in a good match on premium.

I heard KV-5s can do 30-70k but I was hoping for some confirmation to justify the price of the lowe.

Thank you!

I have the kv-5 and easily make above 30k every match. My highest was around 135k. I run premium acct. Sure the gun sux on it, but aim in the right spots and you can pen most you'll go up against. Plus, tier 9s is the highest you'll face, and never matched with tier 10s unless you get dragged in via platoon. So with the high DPM and armor to survive a little longer, exp and creds come a little more easily. The type 59 is more fun to play though, but I still like my kv-5. It was noob friendly to me when I bought it a year ago, and still find myself playing it, closing in on 1k matches in it. Hoped that helped.

Thanks for replying.  I have about 500 matches now on the kv-5.  It is a good money maker.

I think the tank does very well and the high alpha and good rof make this tank very dangerous for t7 and lwoer tanks.  I can generally beat most other t8 premium tanks because of the high rof if I can get any position.  But t8 and higher heavy tanks are tough.

I would suggest getting this tank for many people though.  The armor is ok, even with the big weakspot.  My best advice, is ram with this tank.  It weights 100 tons and rams everything for a lot of damage.

I hope people enjoy theirs as well.

With a Lowe and premium account grinding hard you can generate more than two million credits in a day.

I think the Type 59 is the best mix !!

It is a lot of fun and makes great money. I have never lost money even when i get wiped out!!

I normally make around 30-35k for a average game (not premium), the best as yet is 75k profit (not premium) but i have only had the tanks a few weeks.   I know i can do better than that !! :Smile_great:

I have a t59, it makes good money with his high ROF (to load a shell takes around  6 seconds)
Before 7.3 it was my KV with the 107 that tank was an amazing moneymaker. Now... Well the KV-1 has shitty guns now..
