Personally wouldn't suggest getting any of them with the current match maker but since you ask the only ones that are any good are:

 

T26E5 \ Patriot

Lowe

Strv S1

I own them all and have played them all.  My truly humble opinion is: 1) If you play best in a Heavy, the T26E5 or Patriot (same thing), with honorable mention going to the Liberte and 112, 2) if you play best in a Medium, the M46 KR, with honorable mention going to the FV4202 and T54 First Prototype, 3) if you play best in a TD, The Strv S1, though it takes some getting used to.

With the 3-5-7 match making any tier VIII at the moment is not very useful or fun to play.

Because you will en up about 80% of the time being bottom tier playing target for tier IX and X.

Pretty much this, but buyer beware: the current state of MM means you'll be food for T10s in most battles.

 

I would also consider the Lowe, if you're good with heavies (especially support ones)...

I would suggest the T26E5 while its available. Against lower tiers it performs well as a heavy, and against higher tiers it can flex and play as a decent medium.

WZ-120-1G FT Is a Beast

The  Lorraine 40t  is also a very good tank,

Skorpion G

and The Progetto M35 mod. 46.

Defender 

Those are the best Premiums right now, But with the state of the game and how they treat us lesser Peons , I would not spend a dime until things change Big TIME!!!

The Revalorise is a tier 6 Sherman that was up-gunned, slow loading no armor facing tier 9 and 10, 80% of the time.....just sayn.

this is pretty close to what my list would look like.

 

i would also agree with the others and say that this game isn't worth your money right now.

If they brought back Front Line as a permanent mode it would be worth buying one. Other wise, save your money.

 

I enjoyed the WZ 120, Progetto, S1, Lorr 40t, and T44 100 on it.

The Lorr 40t is a pretty good tank, you will have to adapt to it's play style.  Once you do though you can have some pretty good games even against tier 10s.

You'll get better matchmaking with Tiger 131 AND a BIA crew.

Your list isn't valid. You're missing the elc even 90.

PS, they're supposedly dropping a "terror" tank on Friday for a weekend sale.  You might want to wait and check it out.

Get only the best ones that currently are:

Lowe: good pen and god like armor when hull down (feking useless at tier 10)

T34: better pen/alpha than Lowe but less gun handling with even less armor and a bit more speed. (All around useless at tier 10)

Strv s1: god like penetration/dpm/alpha for its tier, you will never press the 2 key. Fast and literally invisible 95% of the time but lacks armor. (Actually doesn't feking sucks like other premium tier 8 when in tier 10 battle. Yet in tier 10 is a glass cannon so be careful)
