I'm thinking around tiers 5-7, as I know the E-50 is a beast, but really hard to reach.  

I've also discovered that I don't care for sniping much.  The VK H is the closest I've found as it's got good average everything.  The M4 and/or T-28 has been really good for Tier 4, but I want to move on to higher matches.

the best medium brawler is the E2 and the vk3601 but after 8,8 the vk3601h would be a heavy and a pretty good one too.

Matilda IV at tier 5

Panzer V/M10 at tier 7 (the front is surprisingly resilient)

Depends what tier you're looking for.

T127 is king of tier 3 brawling.
IS3 is great for tier 8, or if you prefer mediums Type59 or T54.

VK3601 is good for mid tiers...

Just few that come to mind right away

Was going to say T-54, but that is outside the given range. So I would say the Jumbo.

I'm not sure if your including prem tanks in your question but if you are, then I would say the Ram II is the med brawl king of tier 5. With over 600hp, fair maneuverability and a gun that can out DPM many tanks it is a little monster. Just get right in peoples faces and bully them around. Love it.

KV-13. IS armor + flanking speed = fun.

T-34-85 for me works quite well as a brawler.

At Tier VII consider the T-34-1 as a good brawler.  Reasonably nimble, and an incredibly strong turret that allows you to facehug Soviet Tier VIIs with impunity.  Its gun depression is bad, but if it can get a good hull down position it can bounce very well, and it has a gun to match it. Its hull armor is a little lacking, but it's a short tank and only the British and Americans can reliably hit it at close range.  The T20 is another good choice, no armor but slightly better maneuverability as well as a good gun.  Comet is excellent if you can deal with 148 pen against Tier 9s.

Why would you brawl with one of the best ranged guns in the tier?  The Konisch is like a laser.

If you're brawling with a medium, you are doing mediums wrong.

With the upcoming 8.8 changes and the alpha nerf to the konisch, it's likely not going to be worth using on the VK3601 "heavy" tank.

Such a good tank now that derp is nerfed. Watch out for KV-1s and AT 2s though.

At tier 5 I like all the iconic tanks, but T-34 is kind of snipey, pz IV is my favorite.
Tier 6 the VK 36 I would say. Everyone who has posted VK 36 has forgotten to mention that it will be a heavy tank in the next patch, which is due a couple of weeks from now. So both the E8 and E2 are good alternative mediums; E2 is superior imo.
Tier 7 is the meds-suck tier; the T20 has a good gun but you can have more fun with that gun at tier 6 in the M6. I hear good things about the T-43.
