I used to love my PZ4 before it's transformation into a grey M4 and I'm considering buying a premium tank with my tax refund.  So how does it do as a credit earner?  What kind of money per game?

In the interest of disclosure I have to admit I own a Lowe I bought back when I started playing and I am utterly horrid in it.  It's bad enough I'll only take it out anymore if I really really need credits to buy a new shiny in game and I feel terrible for everyone on my team when I do.   :Smile_mellow:

If they put the Type 59 back on sale I'd buy one (but wouldn't most people shopping for a premium that don't already own one?) but since that isn't likely I would like to find something else that has a high credit earning potential that might match my style of play.

If someone has other recommendations I'd love to hear them.  Please keep in mind it is probably going to need some mobility if I'm going to enjoy playing it;

Get the Dicker Max if you enjoy hiding/sniping in a TD, or the SU-122-44 if you're more of an assault gun player. Both can perform admirably, while I've never seen a Panzer IV S. that's managed to impress me.

The PZ4s gets the engine destroyed almost every shot to the front plate, if you get this tank it plays best hulls down

I think if he was to go with a TD premium the 122-44 is better than the D-max  but we are talking a tier difference also...personal preferences..As for the PZ 4s...it's ok nothing spectacular. It will make you credits.

It's called a lower glacis. Besides, almost every German tank does that.

If mobility is your thing definitely get the SU-122-44... Soooooooooooo good!

This
but

I do love my Pz4 S. Bought it on sale and it is the only premium tank I have.
It is a support tank and should be used as such, not a pure brawler nor a sniper but capable in both.

In a straight up tier 6 fight, imo, it performs well. Capable of a high rate of fire, especially with vents, rammer, and BIA.
Kicks azz against lower tiers, capable of decent scouting when needed, and just enough speed to find trouble but not too fast.

I do hate being on the bottom tier and facing 8's though. You're delegated to some scouting, protecting arty, and finding weak points on higher tier tanks as it doesn't pen much.

A bad game yields me around 8 k silver- bad meaning I did nothing and go killed fast
A good game anywhere between 30-60 k.
(with premium account)

I'm sure there are better premium tier 6's out there but I really enjoy this tank and do not regret buying it.

I'll be the first to admit I can't drive a Lowe.  My win rate in the thing is easily 12-13% lower than my global rate.  I am horrid in it.  It has a great gun but other than that I hate the slow bigness of it.  I tend to have better games in mobile tanks and that is what I am looking for.
