I found the WOTLabs 'best tank for mission' threads to be helpful for the 1st campaign of personal missions, so I thought I'd put together a list for the different missions. 

 

For the first set of missions, the minimum tier required is now 6+, instead of 4+. These missions can be completed within any number of battles, unlike the other sets.

I have taken the missions list from The Daily Bounce, and added a recommended vehicle column, color coded by Aslain's tank type colors. These are just initial recommendations, if you have better suggestions, let me know, and I will try to update the list. These missions don't 
necessarily require these specific vehicles, but I think they'd be easiest to complete with the listed ones.

 

​Additional campaign info is available at The Armored Patrol.

 

TL;DR? You will need:

  • USA arty,
  • French, USSR (or Chinese), and German Light Tanks,
  • Japanese or German super heavies,
  • and American superheavy TDs.

 

I will be putting lists together for the two other campaigns later this week as I have time.

Union: USSR/China

 

Bloc: Germany/Japan

Aren't they just cumulative missions? Basically the key is to...play tanks until they complete.

I'm not sure if I'm happy that the next set of missions seem way easier but I am looking forward to doing them all.

Does anyone know if you get any special rewards for completing all in a set with honors? I.E. in the first missions you unlock a special camo for that nation.

It's the same. Camo that can then be purchased for the same nation as the reward tank.

You mean not completely based on getting good RNG and MM? I fail to see how that is a bad thing.

 

Also @OP, I wouldn't recommend using LTs for spotting/assisting damage. HTs and MTs are a lot more reliable since they have the same view range but with a lot more of survivability. You could also just shoot HE at tracks for easy assist damage.

These seem a whole lot easier than the old personal missions. 

 

Still haven't gotten myself a Obj 260 since i'm stuck on TD-15... Hopefully I can get one within the next 10 years.

The Tortoise is another vehicle good at blocking damage, for Alliance-6.

Nice list.  Keep in mind the Polish 50TP premium; awesome at blocking shots.  Also the Brit heavies for blocking shots (hull down) and dishing out good damage fast.  The Swedish tier VI medium premium is also good for quick damage because of the autoloader.

I like this thread, somehow missed it while I was out west for work.

 

That being said, I'm trying to do as many of the Union damage missions with the Type 64 and/or T54LTWT cause I prefer LT game play anyway.

Figured it out, I don't play all nations so no point in pursuing this further.

Best vehicle to complete Coalition-2 (primary only) mission is the Foch 155 with a full HE loadout.  Got that advice from our clan website.  Holy cow is it a fun TD to run, and throwing HE around with a large caliber autoloader is the quickest way to complete the primary mission. You can then switch to your arty to finish the secondary if you are into that.

Any mission that requires arty Like Alliance 2. A Strike Out of the Blue, I will not be able to due, 'cuz I don't play arty. I don't think I've ever stunned anyone with my Derp guns. Oh well.

The top tier British TDs stun with HE. The Americans might too
