the US m40 should be good now.

Disagree!

 

M40/43 has bigger gun, more damage, but is less accurate and the rof is poor, plus mobility is bad.  Plus, all subsequent US arties follow this same sort of style, though their mobility improves dramatically.

 

Lorraine and FV207 are both much better for gun handling, but the Lorraine has a significant mobility edge.  The UK line gets more mobile at tier 9 (which is probably its best at the higher tiers) before you go for the CGC (which is a different beast again).

 

SU-14-2 has big gun, but with poorer gun handling than even the M40/43 (gun traverse is particularly aggravating).  And, like the US arties, this is just a taste of what is to come... except for the anomalous Obj 261 at tier X.

 

So, if you like the 'big whack' then go with the US M40/43 and continue the US line.  It is certainly one of the most forgiving to play and most popular for a good reason, namely the M53/55 at tier 9.

 

It all comes down to style of play and what you enjoy.

For me, M40/M43 doesn't work (with base or the top howitzer).
SU-14-2 was really nice!
I'm struggling with the FV207. Just got the upper howitzer. At instance, the base one appears nicer.
I still stucked on the Lorraine 155 50 (french tier 7). Can't say how's the L 155 51.
