JT88... I have SP and i find it mediocre, the amazing armor gets punched through often (the spaced armor that is).

T34, Lowe, Type 59, etc. All the tier 8's in the right hands have the potential to make over 100K credits.

I have JT88, SP, Type 59, SU-122-44.

JT88 brings in the best top end credits, but seems to earn less average credits than my type 59 when playing solo (in platoons with T34s or Lowes it brings in higher avg. creds.)

I turn to my SP when playing solo and the games are crappy (think x5 weekends.)

OP, the search function is your friend...

http://forum.worldof...-tanks-in-game/

The top premiums, that are currently available for sale are the T34, SP, Jag8.8

The Lowe is not near the top...

it has been shown time and time again, Type 59 is the best money making premium, UNLESS you some how get a Type 59G, those things make 2x as much credits and xp as Type 59, every single battle...

I love the Super Pershing. Its simply an up-armored beast of a slow tank. I treat it like the M18 Claymore mine training when I was in the military. FRONT TOWARDS ENEMY.
I heard the Type 59 is the best. But since its currently not on market the point is moot.

Overall they say that most tanks are fairly competitive for cash making. They all have their little ways of playing.

Also, the Pershing also eats gold rounds like a champ  :Smile_trollface-3:

It has been said time and time again, the TYPE 59 IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE!

And you are so wrong about the Type 59G  it costs how much? and makes how many credits? And is ONLY available on what server?

geez...

What has ACTUALLY been proven is that the T34 is the #1 money maker of all the CURRENTLY available tier8 premies...and by the way, thay are on sale for 10,200 gold today...I've had mine sitting around, (Got it free back when) and started rolling it. It does not need but a few sprems to do well, (Good for those tier10 fights) it can be equiped to negate the nerfage.

And is a cash cow. I play it a bit last night, and it took about 20 battles to make a net profit of 1 Million credits...yep I'm sure other tier8 premies can do that as well, I know my 59 can, BUT, the T34 is as much fun to play, as any other Tier8 heavy I have ever driven..so that is a bonus as well.

I know NO ONE who has a Lowe and a T34, who prefers the Lowe...and most dont even like their Lowe's anymore. Take that for what it's worth.

There was a forum post a while back on the EU server that listed each tank's credit income coefficient. Unsurprisingly, Arty had the lowest ratio.

The absolute highest coefficient in the game is the Type 59, followed by super pershing, JT88, IS-6, T34, Lowe. In that order. (If I recall correctly)

Thus type 59 makes the most money, to compensate for its low damage (income directly proportional to damage dealt), as is the T26E4, and JT88

I own a JT 88, and ever match, EVER MATCH, get above 15k, and that's when I suck! You could possibly get up to 75k with it, and I have tried, but since i'm not Top Gun material, I got close to 51K. GO TO THE JT88!

Lowe is actually the worst T8 premium credit maker... thanks to its expensive ammo and fragile engine that is always broken/on fire. you often spend 3000 extra for the repairs... and unlike T34, it is simply a fodder if they put you into t10 game thanks to its terriable gun depression and armor.

if you DO NOT use premium account, 252 credit/round T8 prem tanks almost always make more credit than those with expensive ammos such as IS6, Lowe and T34. better match making is also a key factor for credit making. Combine all the key factors together, Lowe is at the bottom without doubt.

When you look at the top of the money making list:
Type 59   26,573
8.8 cm Pak 43 JagdTiger   26,131
KV-5 26,020
T34   25,189
T26E4 Super Pershing 23,169
IS-6 23,167
M6A2E1    22,793
Löwe 22,620

It is clear that all of those tier 8 premiums make good credits.  If you are working the USA heavy line and want to train the crew while making really good credits then it is very clear that the T34 is a far better choice than any other on that list.  If you are working up the USA medium line then the Super Pershing would be a better choce, the credits aren't that far off and you can train your crew while earning those credits.
I'm considering the JT88 but training a German TD crew isn't as high a priority to me, I haven't even bought the JPE-100 yet and even if I did I can't recall the last time my clan used one in clan wars.  But the JT88 is the highest credit earner currently available and I do like to snipe, it is also only 8.5k gold until this special ends.
