The AMX 40 has taught several new curse words, and how to not throw my monitor across the room after driving half the match to the fighting and getting one shot by a derp the moment I get there.

I found that the B1 has same to less armor than the 40, weaker gun, and a slower speed ... U want enough words to fill a dictionary or an excuse for a new computer, try to actually elite this beast. I once had the 15 mins expire before I made it to enemy base, and I was always moving towards it, didnt stop to fire a shot or anything!

I've got Ace Tanker on the Lee and the T28.  Out of both of them now, but while I definitely think the Lee had issues because of its size compared to other TDs (which it really is) I did very well when I was the top tank.

Grinding the B1 now... got Mastery 1 on my second battle, but only getting about 1-2 kills a match lately.

Oh... and by all means add SU5 to the list.  Worst SPG I've been in (and I've been in them all up to T4).  I've got six kills on many occasions mind you, but so many issues to be dealt with on that tank.

I have yet to play a good deal of the "suck" tanks at the moment, but judging from my experience with the fair few I have grinded on, they look like some sort of introduction to a playstyle you may or may not have played.

For some odd reason, the Lee introduced me to being a Tank Destroyer (which is sort of weird, considering your path doesn't lead to TDs, as far as I know), T-28 introduced me to peek a boo, and Pz38NA introduced me to passive scouting.

You might not be able to perform on par (maybe the 38NA would) with someone "into the role" but it is sure to prepare you well for it, given that you didn't spend the entire grind throwing your tank to the enemy spawn or used free exp to proceed.

That's the opinion of a somewhat new player still in the learning process.

Have to go to bat for the med  T28 here. I love it but only at elite (with the 57mm Zis-4 which is unmatched when combining its rof, accuracy and Pen,  for a tier 4).For mine it outperformes any other Tier 4....& matches and outperformes many 5-6`s and the Zis-4 can take down some 7`s if you get in a position to hit flank.
Best way to use I find is to get camo &  bino for a mod and then defend/snipe at distance..then counterattack at flanks. Really good for those dumbass pub games where there is usually no rhyme or reason.Ill  just find a spot, snipe all the rushes ( & with a reload of 2.6s, most tier 4-5s are toast after 3 -4 pens/ 8 secs),  then counter.  Not to much thinking involved always a winner if your near the top of the tree and your team arnt complete ejits..
