So, I, like many others, will be starting the long grind towards a (super OP) Chinese tier 10. However, I have the same question as many others... Which one.

I've tried to run as many games as I can on each (which admittedly was paultry) and didn't manage to snag a training room (mostly due to laziness), so I have little testing info and have yet to find a general information/source thread. As a result, in lieu of the testing server (patch today!) or an easy-mode blog post, I will sift through you good teaming masses for the information I need.

Does anyone have general problems in the 113 or 121? Which ones slope is better? Are their turrets equal or does the 121's extra bulk make it more vulnerable? Does the extra length of a 113 make it more exposed or difficult to maneuver? Does the 113 have the same frontal fuel tanks as the 121? Are there any module/crew issues frontally besides the fuel tanks? Is there a noticeable camouflage difference between the 113 and the 121? Is there an info thread/blog and I'm just oblivious? Etc.

113 is really just a bigger 121- it has more HP, the EXACT SAME alpha, BUT 121 reloads 1.5 seconds less... None of them have no gun depression and the acceleration seems to be the same... If I were you I would choose the medium(I don't know about slopes but 120mm will never be enough to really care. The turret is easily penetrated by guns with more than 255mm pen, at least on the 121)

The heavy was a mauler on the ts because everyone was shooting HEAT rounds. In normal play it might not be so great because it's pennable frontally from close range by ap and apcr ammo. Still something with a close to autobounce ufp a tough turret and a gun with 400 pen is not something to trifle with. The 121 feels to me like a 9.5 rather than a 10 in the way that the old t34 felt like an 8.5 capable in the right hands but just not up to par for tier for the average player.
Basicly if you like a tank that feels like a t10 get the heavy. If you want a challenge get the med.

At this point, what I'm most concerned about is frontal module positioning and access. I know the 121's fuel tanks are in front, but I don't know about anything else.
