T26E5 for the heavy.

T-54 First Prototype for a medium.

Both tanks get much better as the skills/perks increase with a  100% Brothers in Arms crew.

you can see the pattern,overpowered tier8 premiums are the only ones worth your money nowadays.

lowe looks good on paper,but the new MM won't help you much.

Think about your crews more before getting the T-54 First Prototype, especially if you are thinking of training your T-44 and beyond crews. You see on many Russian mediums four-man crews, but they are not all the same.

 

  • Commander
  • Gunner
  • Driver
  • Loader

 

Looks typical, right. So who does the Radio Operator job? Premiums in red.

For the T-44, it's the Commander. Same as the T-44-100 ,T-54, Obj 140, T-62A

For the KV-13, it's the Loader. Same as the T-54 First Proto, T-34-85 Rudy, Matilda IV

 

Who does the Radio Operator job is important because that is where you get Situational Awareness. If your Commander in your T-44 has Situational Awareness, if you put that crew in the T-54 First Proto that skill is useless there.

 

Just something to think about when you are looking at premiums to help in crew training and playing.

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.

 

thats a very poor opinion on the m4 rev... its a very strong tank. cannot carry many games but its very strong

Do what I did and buy the panth 8.8 as your first tier 8 prem :>

 

On a more serious note, no, don't do that. I don't hate my panth 8.8 or tier 8 MM as I first did, but it is not a friendly tank. especially if you are like me and refuse to fire gold. I have to get creative with how I play it and really learn to pick my targets and angle of attack.

“Very strong tank” is a bit generous. It’s a servicable soft skinned TD that thinks that it’s a medium tank. The gun is a troll, with middling penetration and mediocre ballistics. The alpha is nice, but it’s not really a reliable gun.

I play Tier VIIIs almost exclusively because I'm constantly chasing whatever is On Track at the moment.  I don't have a problem with the 3/5/7 MM.  If I'm at the bottom, I just find a Tier X or a IX that's going in the direction I like to go and I support it.  I do well enough playing that way that I don't get frustrated and earn a TON of credits and experience, so I believe Tier VIII Premiums are WELL worth the money.  When I originally posted my humble opinion on this post, I only referenced what is in the Premium Shop RIGHT NOW (as per the title of this post).  Like many who have posted, I also like Lowe, The Defender, the Lorraine 40t, the Scorpion G (though I have far less experience in it than the others), and I aslo LOVE the Somua SM, WZ-111 and T-34-3.  I did not reference any of them however, because they are not available "RIGHT NOW" (exception: the Lowe).  Good responses to this question.  But.... I don't get the ELC EVEN 90, or M4A1 Revaloise.  I have them.  I just don't like them much.

I just picked up the Progetto and really enjoy it so far. With current mm, mobility is key for t8's and prog sure has plenty of that. Add a very fun gun mechanic that allows you to either fire single shells or 3 round "burst" and it's a heck of a flanker/strangler picker. It has no armor to speak of as a trade off, but if you are decent at meds then it's nothing new.
