which tank do you recon is the best money-maker in your garage?

i only got tanks up to tier VI, so far it is for me the KV, followed by the Sherman M4... what are your experiences?

I love the M5 and the M7 for scouting.  If they get into an evenly matched tier they also do a lot of damage.  The M5 has a huge gun for it's tier and the M7 has fast reload times.

Most tier 5 and 6 tanks are excellent money-makers, depending on how well you can play each.

Best moneymaker I have by far is my Ram II. 3k to repair if taken out, shells are ridiculously cheap, able to fire a round every 1.8 seconds (with a rammer), able to pen almost anything up through tier 6, and can take out tier 8's if played smartly. Oh, and until the patch drops, is the ultimate perma-track machine for tier 7's-8's. I generally walk with no less than 20k on a loss and highest I've had was 75k on a win (10 kills, 3 damaged, 9 detected, 72 shots fired, 71 hits).

The E8 and 3601 are my moneymakers right now.. they make up for what seems like an 80% loss rate in my tiger.  :rolleyes:

I hate to be a forum nazi, but there are tons of threads about it, use the search function. This is just one of the them.

I am mediocre at best, and I think the Ram-II is worth every penny of the cash I spent on it.

IMO nothing beats the premium heavy tank M6A2E1.

I can make 20k on that thing in a total defeat! On good battles can make 90-100k.

The thing is a [slow] moving ATM machine!

I can't remember where i read it but i think Overlord posted that all premium tanks (gold, preorder, beta award) have a higher coefficient of credit generation. So yes the Ram II and the M6A2E1 for example are good money makers.  I average 40-50k per round in my M6A2E1, but of course it costs 1000 per shot and repair costs are 22k or so if destroyed.

MY two highest money making matches were in my Pz V/IV and my Hummel  (around 80k),  GW panther is a close 3rd and the Churchill is fun too.

Most consistent and easiest money maker?  Definitely the Hummel.

ya the VK3601 for sure, I sold it ages ago to get my Tiger I so right now the Tiger is my money maker even tho its only between -3K to +5K for losses and most I have gained is something like 40K-50K for Wins

PZIV, and soon to be elite VK3601. PZIV is the sweetness. Low operating costs very high rewards.
