Soon to be released:
M6A2E1 or Lowe

Available now:
Churchill - Fully loaded with APCR.
I hear the B1 Bis is a hit or miss though.

I have to say dude the Churchill is a very very good choice out of them all. It fires so fast you can take our a KV or a T1, and anything short of a derp gun bounces off.

The B2 german tank will make you king of noobs in tier 2 or less games.

The M6A2E8 or w/e will have to be paid for with real cash.

The Ram 2 is a surprisingly good tank as well.

The current premiums are very bland. Wait till Sturmtigers, E-10, E-25, Lowe, M6A2E1, FCM F1's start rolling in and they will start looking attractive.

Hotchkiss and T2 lights are easily the best of the premiums.

I've gotta agree with this. Both are amazing at their assigned roles an in their respective tiered battles. Aside from them though the only one i'd say is worth it is the Ram and even then its just barely. The others are all undergunned or underarmored for their tiers.

T14 seems like a pretty solid tank, my KV's 107mm bounces off it a lot.

38h is supposed to be dominate its tier, but it's only Tier 2, so judge for yourself.

Descending order of being effective against their own tier,

Pz 38H - tier 2 and below it just dominates the competition, since the t1-t2 games usually are only light tanks most guns won't even be able to penetrate you without a carefully aimed shot.

Ram II/Churchill -they both have a good credit coefficient, but the Churchill has a massive XP gain coefficient - the Ram II wins IMO because it's mobility means that its 6lber is more effective in higher tier battles)

Pz S35- The S35 is now actually quite good compared to all other tier III mediums/lights, best armor of that group and a high rof gun that has trouble with no other tank in the tier.

Matilda/T14 - The Matilda suffers from churchill syndrome in that the gun is ok for it's tier,,,not good but ok - but it's lack of mobility means that in battles where you are lower on the roster you become pretty ineffective.

T2/Valentine - there are tanks even in tier 2 the T2's 2,cm gun will have issues with, and the Valentine is just too slow to be any fun.

In terms of pure XP/Profit generation regardless of tier, I'd go with Ram II/Churchill and the Pz 38H does ok with XP but not so much with credits.

I've tried them all. I made the most credits with the ram-II and the most fun was the T2 light tank

Or wait for the new prem tanks to come out?
