Accurate arty is the french arty, so i guess that could be the best.
Most damage per shot is usually the American arty, but most of the time they aren't very accurate.
Germans have decent accuracy and decent damage per shot.
Up to the SU-5 the Russians are very accurate but not very good damage per shot.

Take your pick.

EDIT: -1? Penis in vagina :DDDDDDDDDD

Also, while high arc gives you a better ability to strike vehicles behind cover, the time of flight is longer, thus timing is more important.

Generally, the Russian line is the best artillery.  I would recomend going KV-2 to S-51 so you dont have to play the SU-14.  The obj. 212 is fun with a 30 sec reload.  Then, with the 261, you can effectively use AP shells because it is soo accurate.

Not always, the "transition" tier 6 arty you get from the KV-2 has horrible accuracy, worse than the americans.  (might get fixed by the next patch)

Also, nerfs have given tier 2 and 3 soviet arties serious pen problems and horribly low damage unless you use gold rounds.  Not sure about tier 4.

In other words, unless you use gold rounds the Soviet arties are only good at higher tiers.

Soviet tier 8 arty lacks anything related to an arc. It is closer to a straight line.

Since the French is the only SPG line with a premium vehicle, it would be the easier line to grind up to top tier; for training crews and credit income is better for premium vehicles.

By the time I purchased the Bat Chat 155, I had over 3M in credit after the purchase and my SPG crew was well over 320% (100% plus 2 skills/perks) in training. French premium SPG 105 leFH18B2 is a great credit earning vehicle.

keep in mind, arty relies heavily on splash, even though french arty is accurate, the splash is only 3 meters so most likely be a miss, while if you play the other arty of an average of 6 meters or so, you are more likely to hit and dish out more damage (French arty are like the sniping german tanks)

the Batchat arty is the only one with an autoloader. can kick out 4 shells (low alpha but it is 4 shells) pdq but then has a hellacious reload.

French arty are also fast little buggers. The American/Russian/Germans are pretty slow. movers.

BatChat Arty :D

Auto-Loader. 4 shots in about 16 seconds, which is about 6,000 damage. Sure, huge long wait on the reload, but if you're pubbing, you can't regularly rely on your pugs to protect you between every shot in the other arty. So the whole "unload everything at once" might work better. The huge benefit of this is you can easily relocate while you wait. With your speed and maneuverability in the BatChat, it's almost a requirement to do so between reloads.

Oh yeah, and it's also the ONLY turreted Top-Tier Arty.

Auto-Loader, Turreted, AND High-Speed arty...

I don't have the type E but I do have the other three end tiers and I would rate them in this order:
261
92
Bat 155
However each has it's advantages and disadvantages.
The 261 is supremely accurate, allowing for use of AP shells to great effect. However it has lowish splash and and flat firing arc, making it harder to hit targets behind cover.
The 92 has the godly splash radius and one shot potential of most tanks if it hits. However the aim time is very slow, as is the reload. It is also rather inaccurate.
The bat has the 4 round drum, allowing for devastating cumulative damage. However the splash is limited, the damage is low, it's not as accurate as it says it's biggest failing is it ungodly long reload. I have everything possible to cut down on it and it's still 64 seconds.
They are all rather situational.  the 261 is the best all rounder for it's fast reload, good speed and traverse, as well as it's tank like accuracy.

With the Tier Change in Arty... You'll have to play the SU-14 either way.

With BiA, and vent installed, my Bat Chat 155 had about 62 sec reload time,
but WG took away the vent, now it is about 68 sec for reload.

With 4-shots loaded, I can usually get a vehicle tracked in the first 1 or 2 shots, then finish them off before reload.

Handful of times I've tracked an enemy vehicle with 1st shot then finish them off with the 2nd, tier X, AMX 50B, T110E5 or T57 are usually the victims of one-shot kills.

Having a turret allow the Bat Chat 155 to go on TD mode quite effectively.
I've out maneuvered a Maus and TD it to death even with reload in between.. or could be just a poor Maus driver.
