I personally like the Lowe the most, fits my "giant german tank of doom with accurate gun" playstyle.

Lol i would say Lowe, but i used a m6 90mm and penetrated its frontal armor while i was friendly. Thought it as a joke but.... Its armor is paper. Gotta say t34 is probaly best teir 8 premium tank in game right now.

depends on your preferred playstyle, the 26E4 is a supreme brawler, fantastic frontal armour, the T34 is one of the best hull-down tanks in the game etc.
figure out what role you want to play and go read up on the tanks strengths and make a choice you are happy with.

Or you can hold off until the next test server and try them out first.

Do you plan on using the premium tank just for grinding credits, or do you have a crew you want to train?  If you plan on getting the T57 or T110E5, then getting the T34 and using it for crew grinding would be good.  If you plan on getting the Maus or E100, then the Lowe.  The benefits of crew training are huge and should be a big part of your decision.

The T26E4 is my current nemesis, I hate going against that tank with a passion.  The Jagdtiger 8.8 has a great rate of fire but doesn't scare me.  The SU-122-44 used to be good as well.

I have more fun playing in the T34 than the Lowe, it is a quicker tank.  The Lowe seems to make more credits though.

The T34 is probably the best option atm, great damage/pen, op to hell gun depression with good hull down ability and is a flexible tank in higher tiers which is notorious for rolling into high tier matches.

If you want to be cheap, buy the Super Pershing and then buy some premium time or whatever.

What premium tank you get should be determined by the tech tree you go or intend to go. They will all make a similar amount of money largely dependent on the skill of the player themselves. The real depending factor on which premium vehicle to get is crew training. That's it. Done. Finished. Crew training.

They all make decent money  and they all have plusses and minuses, that could be debated forever I believe..

I use my prem's to run my crews in.. so my best advice is to purchase a premium that matches  your main heavy line...  ie...   I run my IS4 crew in my IS6  fits perfectly... and my IS7 crew in my KV-5.

Pick one that matches your play style and you will be happy...

T34 and some premium account time. Maybe get some camo/save to transfer crew or redo skills at 100%
