From my most recent premiums I think the winner is the Pilot by far. This tank is incredible. I don't know if I'll ever play the KR Patton any time soon so I scrounged it for equipment.
The T25 Pilot is everything the T20 is except a tier higher and adjusted so that it's better. I'm actually glad they didn't put it as the Tier VII and weaker a long time ago. Funny they didn't, since it was more significant in the development of the Pershing tank than the T20 was...but whatever. Currently it feels like a Mutz with better flanking ability. I think that I am going to enjoy the Pattons if they perform similar to this. Overall I'm very pleased with this tank and it's going to be one of my primary tanks for a while.
Lorraine 40t is also good but harder to play. Definitely this is one tank which arty is still able to squash, but I like the play style as high risk/high reward. It's a challenge to learn the new positions you need to take but overall it is high quality and I think it is good practice for when I go up the French heavy line.
Panther M/10 is excellent. Not much more to say: a Panther that doesn't face Tier IXs. It feels kind of dirty to play a preferential mm tank but that means that it makes good stress relief in the wake of the ELC's death.
59 Patton seems to have a curse for me. I can't get a win in this but it's a small sample size. I like the tank. I hate the T-34-3 and I'm considering selling it. This tank is just like a Pilot or STA-2 but obviously with more armor and more of a hatch which is pretty hilarious. The armor is quality though - an enemy is more likely to aim center mass than at your turret so it does the job quite well. It's also nice to train up my Chinese crew in a tank which plays more like a regular tank. Only downside besides ancient Chinese curse: engine is always getting destroyed and it goes up hills slowly. It's the weakest of hese mediums but it is fun.
Chinese heavies 112 and WZ-111
Both amazing, both better than poor long-suffering IS-6. Good at different things but the 112 is probably the better tank for coordinated efforts while WZ is the better soloing tank.
Now there is the cow of them all: Obj 252u Defender. The gun is a meme. I don't get how people call E 100's gun inaccurate and then say that this thing is OP. They're completely different. With E 100 you can lead shots and nuke people. With this, it's all random all the time. Yeah pen is marvelous, but it doesn't matter when the shot meant for the lower plate hits the gun mantlet instead. It reminds me of Claus's video on pre-buff 112.
Those are my opinions on these new or buffed premiums.
