The most ULTIMATE tank you can purchase imo is the type 59, but i am sure there are others that will disagree lol

What makes you say its ultimate? Youve never played it or any of the other high lev prems to compare them to.  Strictly forum posts?

True, but i have played against them a lot and my opinion is they are an excellent tank.  Add to that the fact it has a credit printer built in and you can't go wrong with the type 59.

Armor: Lowe, T34 ( turret is the only good armor u will find ), Type 59

Gun: JT 8.8 ( ROF ), T34 ( pen ), Lowe

Mobility: IS-6, T34, KV-5, Type 59

Best for supporting other tanks: Lowe, T34, JT 8.8, Type 59

Best for spearheading: Lowe, KV-5 ( only if it's top dog ), IS-6

Most recommend by me: Lowe, T34, JT 8.8

If you are going to buy a tank, I would suggest either the T34 or Lowe. KV-5 has a big weakspot on its "R2D2" point I'm the very front.

I've tried the Lowe on the test server this week.  It's armor is 'ok', at 120mm and kinda bouncey.  My main issue is the damage is a little light and it's mobility is god awful.  It's like driving my KV-4.  I felt like a crippled duck, with a frickin' laser beam on my head.

Going to try the T34 tonight with the new iteration of the test server.

I want a premium tank, and I have the gold reserved for it, I just can't decide if I can live with the Lowe or if the T34 will be better.

The Chaffee has a GREAT deal of trouble making any credits. One of my last outings I killed two tanks damaged several others and detected 9 tanks. I only made 1 k over my replacement costs. I am a class 1 with  over 300 battles.  World of Tanks needs to increase Chaffee's income.  The only way you can make credits with the Chaffee is to survive. I am playing it as a NON premium most of the time.

Best overall tank is the type 59.  Each level has its best. T29 for level 7. Sherman deuce is my favorite for level 6. Chaffee is a lot of fun but gets cheated on the credits. KV-2 also an excellent tank in class. Each tank has to be played correctly for its particular characteristics.  178 mm turret armor and a rapid firing 76 mm gun on the deuce allows it to duke it out with heavier tanks in the right position.

Lol, cuz it is really....its a very potent all around tank, its got great agility, a fairly deadly gun, armor is atleast sufficient...its not a bad tank at all...idk about being the ultimate uber god killer of super dragon slaying but it is certainly one of the top 10 best tanks...especially platooned with another medium....then its just murder....T59 and an AMX1390....the ntis Rape to the 1st degree...

OP, the Most ultimate tank in this game? Prolly will be the Russian T10 Medium Tank T62A or the US T10 M48 Patton or the T10 French Bat Shit 25T or the T10 Germa.....oh wait, nothing German is ultimate.....All the tanks lower then that...none are really "ultimate the best tank you can buy"...all have strengths all have weaknesses, just that hte Russian line is the most forgiving and easiest to play....

Well.. technically once the Brits come in, Centurion late model (the preliminary tree mentioned we get up to MK 9 model i think?)  would probably be the closest in the term 'ultimate' given it was one of the best design overall of the era with sufficient protection, good mobility, deadly gun, and excellent sight plus stabilization in one package.

in the name of balance though, something will probably have to give way... i mean i don't realistically expect us to replicate Valley of Tears with them.
