I've playing the Pz. IV H a lot recently and enjoying the gameplay, is there anything similar at higher tiers (firing HE, fairly mobile, turreted)?

nope. tier 6 is the last tier of derps that arent TDs or heavies. 

there are some heavy hitting Mediums, but not howitzers.

RIP. My friend told me the closest thing was the T49, maybe I'll try it out although I'm not the greatest light tank player

I had a bit of fun with the T-34/85 using the 122mm derp but it’s not really viable vs T 6-8 tanks. More of a take for a spin once in a while and hope for top tier, otherwise use 85mm for most of your games.

M4A3E2 Jumbo Sherman (American medium).  Use the first turret and the deep.

Technically,  the 105 is available on some higher tier US mediums,  but is basically worthless at those tiers.

There's also the 122 derp on the T-34-85 and T-43 as well as the 152 on the T49 and Sheridan(both mobile LTs).  The 34-85 and T-43 may be closer to what you're looking for than the LTs.

Could always run the Soviet T-44 or T-34-2 and run the 122mm gun with HE or the Pershing's 105mm option with HE. But if you're not top tier, you're gonna regret it.

There's always the heavies like the KV-2 and the entire Japanese heavy line. Though because these are slow and reliant on armor, the skill-ceiling is a lot lower.

Thanks for the feedback guys, I'm currently running the T-34-85 with the derp and seem to be doing reasonably well for my skill level (about 76-77% in marks at the moment). I might try the Centurion 7/1 as well.

Some higher tier TD's run derp but other then the Japanese heavies not many tanks run Derp guns as a standard gun.

cheaper than the standard apcr ammo. 
Standard APCR: 1200cr
premium HESH:  5200cr
Standard HESH: 950cr *****These are the HESH I meant*****

Also you can slap the Tier 5 American Derper (105mm M4) onto the Patton 46(tier 9).  No idea if it would be effective but you can.

What some people would like would be the demolition mortar - equipped tanks that have been around since WW2. You know which ones I mean. But IRL they're not really intended to fight as tanks. Of course we have several fortification assault tanks in the game, so why not? In the game the demolition tanks might be awesome, if possibly OP. Depends upon how much bang the designers might give them.

If youre gonna spam HESH in a 7/1 you dont use the 105mm pen HESH.... you use the premium HESH with its 210mm of penetration. Because penning the sides of Type 5s and Maus' is hilarious. (Source: I have over 1400 battles in the 7/1 and I now spam premium HESH pretty much exclusively... because it is hilarious).
