Im getting ready to start grinding from the 110 up to tier 10, Only crew trainer i have of course in the Type 62, I was thinking of moving that crew up to the 110 but i would also need a prem tank to continue training the crew in that has to be a heavy, Should i get the Alpine Tiger or the 112? Which tank is better and why please?

I'd say WZ-111

Alpine Tiger is a re-skined WZ-111. Mobile with good gun. Similar with IS-3 with a pike nose. In that, it has the same weakness as the IS-3 on angling and such. Similar to the medium tank's play style.

  • I think the WZ-111 is suited for "practice" for the WZ-111-5A

 

112 is less mobile than the WZ-111. Lower plate is good. If I remember correctly, it was buffed, the lower plate, way back.

  • Just by looking at the tank, 112 may resemble the play style for the 113.

 

If you prefer a medium-like play style, then WZ-111.

If you prefer a heavy tank play style, then 112.

Thank you both for the positve feedback, I am more of a medium tank guy i excel more in them then the sluggish heavies, I also love and still do love the IS-3. So from you guys feedback i think the Alpine tiger would be better suited for me, By looking at the tanks up close i kindof like the front end on the tiger more then the 112

The WZ-111 is also at the same price if my memory serves me correctly. And you cannot use a coupon on that tank (WZ-111 and Alpine Tiger). So you are pretty much stuck with $53.99.

 

There were some discussion threads that the Alpine Tiger makes more credits than the WZ-111. Not sure if that is true though since I don't have the Alpine Tiger, only the WZ-111.

 

Regardless if you go with Alpine Tiger/WZ-111 or 112, pick your enemy carefully because of the penetration value of the standard rounds. If you need help, then just Press 2. :P

Well i guess i am screwed because i wanted to use last years Christmas camo on my prem tank but since the Regular WZ-111 is not in the prem shop, I am stuck with the Alpine Tiger. Not like Chinese Line has many options of tanks LOL

I just unlocked and purchased the WZ5A, played a few games and it plays like a dream. I am not the best player to say the least but it is a good tank after coming from the WZ-111-1-4, I just couldnt make that tank work very well for me. However, the 5A, is a beast with the -7 gun depression, gun handling and mobility.

If you are looking for crew trainer over all the WZ111 is better options, the 112 would be my second choice. The Alpine Tiger is ok but you wont make the crew xp and credits as fast. As for the tier 10 Chinese heavy, go the WZ111-5a line, 113 is good but WZ111-5a just a bit better over all.
