KV2 can't fight alone on a flank due to slow reload time. T-150 is very solid all around tank. T34-85 is a good tank, I forget if it mounts the 107 zis, but it does mount a fast firing 85mm gun.

 

I'm thinking about the 1950's T34-85/100, so never mind.

Tier 6 mediums tend to suck.

My T-34-85 would like to have a word with you... As would my Cromwell and VK3001D.

The Hellcat and the KV-122.

 

I mean seriously, the Hellcat will still be a great tier 6, if not the best, and the KV-1S is getting split.  If there is still a KV-something with the 122mm at tier 6, it will be good.

I don't have a lot of experience in the Hellcat but is the nerf really going to make it as useless as everyone seems to think? To the point where a heavy like the M6 or T-150 would be preferred?

T-150 is a giant turd imo, would rather have an ARL or anything really.

Lets not start rumors about the KV 1S till we see confirmed reports about the split. They have been saying this for over a year now.

At first, I felt as you do, but after you learn how to play it, it becomes very capable. If a baddie like me can get the hang of it, anybody can.

The T-150 and hear me out on this.

 

It is slow as a turtle.

As Armed as a pissed off Honey Badger

And a gun like a bat straight out of H***

 

This tank is more or less a good all around heavy sadly it lacks speed that the 1s and Hellcat have.

 

The Jackson is a good contender because of the 90mm and some armor. Some of the German tanks might finally get their day in the sun but that is doubtful. Most of the other tank lines aren't really up to snuff at that point.

Heavy? T-150

More HP, more armor, better DPM.

The only thing it has going against it is the speed factor, but it's honestly not that much less.  I figure the only reason it's not already topdog over the 1S is the horrible stock grind and the fact that the IS7 line is favored over the IS4 line.

 

Once the 1S is nerfed and the T-150 climbs to the top of the pile, people will be asking to get the 1S back.  The 1S's biggest weakness was the reload time.  Let it fire, then rush and flank.  The T-150 has a faster gun and better armor making this tactic far less effective.

 

As we still havent seen what the 1S nerf will be though, it's hard to tell what will really happen.

 

We've seen the Hellcat nerf stats, and honestly, it's no biggie.  Less manueverability, less accurate on the move.  So play a little smarter and take an extra half a second to aim.  I don't think you'll see people fleeing from the Hellcat, nor do I think it will greatly hurt it's overall stats.

No one has mentioned the VK 30.01 P? Shame, that one's pretty good in the right hands.

There's really no question. KV-2 is THE carry tank if you know what you're doing.

Only 1 mention the Jackson? Hellcat minus the speed, still a good contender

SU-100 has a better version of the same gun, has just as good if not better mobility and has what is in my opinion a much more trollish frontal plate. It also have better view range.

 

The only drawback is that there's no turret. Will that kill its chances?

It actually would IMO, losing the turret makes it much less competitive, without MUCH better stats elsewhere to compensate.

Well I think it would atleast let us see more SU-100s since it will have made the vehicle a bit more unique to the battlefield packing the fire that was once available through the KV-1S.

 

But if we're talking about a good solid all purpose battle tank I would imagine the VK 36.01 H. It's a good all-rounder. 
 

The armor values and shape aren't all that different from the Tiger The armor is a bit lacking at tier 7, but at tier 6 I don't think it will be bad at all.

The view range is far greater than any KV tank at the tier and is the same as the hellcat.

It has higher top speeds than the KV-1S, but not as good traverses and acceleration. I'm told it has better terrain resistances than KV-1S though.

The 88mm gun is far more quick and accurate than any Russian counterpart and has a good APCR round. Has a good blend of single shot damage and DPM. Just short of the Cromwell's DPM.

It has a fantastic radio unlike the Russian tanks also.

Gun depression is just as good as KV-1S.

 

A downside is it uses a gasoline engine instead of diesel.
