this topic proves again that there is no best tank for it's tier. for everyone it's different.
I can't disagree with this!
For me, my favourite tanks are:
They all suck, never kept any or even ran them after elite.
M2 Light - fast & fun as well as being very capable of killing other tier 2 tanks. This is actually the tank with my highest efficiency rating and that's with over 400 battles.
Marder II - great gun, great view range, really good traverse range for a turretless TD.
SU-26 - the most fun SPG in the game
T-127 - the best light at tier 3 IMO.
M5 Stuart - great passive scout, best view range of the tier 4 lights.
T-28 - impressive RoF with the ZiS-4 and really good mobility, can climb hills like you wouldn't believe. Great medium tank despite having absolutely no armour (I can't remember EVER bouncing a shot).
Tier 5 (bear in mind that I like scouts)
T-50-2 - The fast & the furious
VK 2801 - derping arty to death since this was introduced.
Chaffee - sight range fantastic, gun is RoFilicious
SU-85 - mount the 107 and kill stuff, also makes good credits with low costs.
M4 Sherman - no outstanding features, just a good all round medium for its tier
M18 Hellcat - my favourite tank, very capable.
GW Panther - the 2nd most fun arty after the SU-26. Great gun traverse, good mobility, reasonable hitting power.
AMX 13 90 - the light tank that likes to kill same tier heavies and even higher tier heavies
T29 - my pick of the tier 7 heavies
Jagdpanther - my pick of the tier 7 TDs
M40/M43 - Not quite as good a RoF as the Object 212, but much better mobility.
T20 - fast and fun, the other tier 7 mediums are good, but this is my pick.
Too many to list, I like a LOT of tier 8 tanks. I have ALL the mediums. The premiums make HUGE credits.
For heavies I think the T32 is a bit under gunned, but the Tiger II is a great tank and so is the IS-3.
The Arty are end-tier and all 3 are used in clan wars to great effect.
For TDs the ISU is a bit soft, but the gun . . .
The mediums & TDs are all good, the heavies suffer from being not quite the best, though the E-75 is real good.
T110E5 - RoF, Pen & mobility are great, just accept that the side & rear armour are not good and use this tank to kill stuff.
