I would not say T69 is horrible if you load all HEAT (which is very expensive).  That said, its mobility is a major issue for a medium tank.  And due to its small clip size, you basically just have to snipe for most of the game until you can finish a tank for sure.  Nowadays, tanks like Somua SM and Lorr 40t are just significantly better.

 

T54E1 was a great medium.  These days though, there are so many tier 9 mediums that are far more flexible.  Standard B is just better in so many ways.

 

T57 Heavy used to be the highest DPM heavy, and being an autoloader.  This thing reloads so fast that in one vs one situation, if you are not careful, the enemy T57 can unload two drums onto you when you could probably get 2 shots back.  And T57 behind a solid heavy is just extremely dangerous.  It is still a great tank, but solo with it is not necessarily fun since in today's meta, you basically need to be able to do everything.  (And 430U is so OP since it can do everything.)

I dont understand this line, why is the T10 a heavy, and the T8 and T9 are mediums?

Plus the T9 has no HEAT or HE rounds, but the T8 and T10 do?

 

Because this line is not a medium or heavy line. It is a autoloader line.

The T54E1 could stand to use better gun handling. Or mobility. Same for the T69 for mobility. They are quite large, essentially no usable armour, and not very mobile mediums.

 

To add to the T57, it is pretty much a support heavy and force multiplier. On its own, what it can do is very limited. But with another vehicle or it following a push with others, that group becomes massively powerful.
