We know it's the 268. If we ignore it, the Grille 15 line.

Except the Grille 15 is crap, as are most of the tanks in the line up until Tier 8.  The Tier 8 and tier 9 are some of the most fun tanks in the game to play though.

marder 38t's main problem was too little ammo

the flakbus was fine with the middle 8.8

the nashorn had meh gun depression compared to the dickermax, but was an easy enough grind

the stur emil was a giant, slow slug that was painful to play - even as someone that liked the dickermax

rhm borsig was a lot better in different map meta

waffle pz4 is a great tier 9, and with the 128 it can reverse poke with plenty of elevation, depression and good gun handling

the grille 15 was a bit too strong, which is why it's so ridiculous that the 268 v4  gets the same agility, but also armor - with the unfair loss of agility the grille suffered it's nowhere near as fun, but calling it "Crap" is a bit of a stretch.

 

 

as to the topic at hand, the STRV is pretty absurd so long as it doesn't get spotted.

the 268v4 is a bully - medium tank agility, stuper heavy armor, and a TD gun.  the issue is if you don't have it, there's always the unknown of how long they'll let it enjoy win rates some 10% higher than the curves would normally allow for before they do something to it.

 

I don't personally "chase carrots" - and I also don't play a ton of TDs, especially since I'm done with personal missions now.

Didn't vote.  Question is too ill-defined.

 

If we judge a line by its ultimate result, then it has to be the Russian line ending with the Obj 268 v4, the best Tier 10 TD in the game.

 

If we judge a line by how fun it is to play (approximately, how good its tanks are) on the grind to tier 10, that's a different matter.  And it depends on how you like to play.

 

The US turreted line suited me well.  Turrets make like a little easier and there are some outstanding tanks in this line: M8A1, T67, Hellcat, and T28 Proto.  At low-mid tier they're fast, at high tier they hit hard and have good armor.

 

I also like the German heavy-armored TD line, because at tier 8/9/10 they have excellent armor.  This allows you to take them into heavy tank zones like cities, which means that on maps like Himmelsdorf or Paris they can still have a good game, whereas the lightly-armored TDs are screwed.  Also, when a TD snipes from long range it gives away half  its XP to the spotter; if you brawl at close range, you spot for yourself and get all the XP.

 

This is also true for the US turretless line.  The T95 at Tier 9 is a superb brawling tank and just has a lot of character.  And at Tier 5 and 6 this line has great turreted TDs (Wolverine and Jackson).  

 

The British turretless line are also well armored and can brawl... but on those, the guns just don't pay off until you get to Tier 9 and Tier 10.  I like a big gun with big alpha in city fights because you'll be doing a lot of poking, not standing there trading punches.  So while the Brit guns have great pen and ROF, they don't always get to use that ROF.   And they're REALLY slow, which means you can't always react to where the battle appears, and many of them have the stupid cupola weak spots..  But the Tier 10 is very nice.

Yet another pointless poll. There is a difference as to what is in fact statistically the best TD and what players like. Not necessarily the same.

 

For example, I played the French top tier Fochs on the test server and really liked them. I also like the American turreted TD's. I can't get on at all with the Russian TD's and believe me I have tried. The German TD's are popular but a bit of a Curates egg as I found the JgPZ was great, the Grill has one hell of a gun, but the TD's inbetween are a bit tricky when you consider what they are up against! The British TD's, well the mid tiers are pretty awful in my view. The AT assault TD's if played right, ie: not playing camper, can be formidable, but an easy target for Medium wolfpacks and artillery. 

 

So having a poll is not at all straightforward, to the point of being misleading.

 

Horses for courses.

 

Have fun, with the TD that suits your gameplay.

 

Guffy.

I was thinking of trying a TD but I'm just a meduim driver not really much use in anything else I've tried.I was thinking of giving the turreted British TDs a try becuase they might suit a meduim tanker better.I just would like the tier VII and viii  I have no interest in the 4005 thing.

Voted 268 v4 because it’s just overpowered (for the moment).

But I did watch a FV 4005 just evaporate tanks in a match yesterday.

To JOSEPHINEISH in particular, British turreted TDS go from relatively immobile (the Achilles is a slowed down undergunned Hellcat) to highly mobile paperthin armored flankers). If high mobility is your goal you’ll be waiting till Tier VII at least. American turreted TDs do the reverse with high mobility in the mid tiers reduced to lumbering up armored tanks by the time you hit Tier VIII. Pick one based upon how you like your mediums

Thanks for the info.I saw QB in I guess the tier VIII and it  got my attention.I was going to free xp to  the tier VII and throw a 5 skill Crew in it  from my failed AX career and give it a try.

All Russian lines are better.  Russian bias at it's best.
