Thanks to the abundant number of opportunities to try new tanks like through the Christmas boxes, Twitch prime deals, etc. I have re-confirmed my type of playstyle as Heaviums.

 

While I am guilty of having big guns and heavily armored tanks in my garage due to the ability to lead the push of a flank, the lack of speed sometimes gets me. 

 

Now, when I say a Heavium I don't necessarily limit it to a Heavy or Medium tank. I play my obj 263 very "in your face" style and love it, so more like a heavy/medium brawler rather than a regular "sniper" TD. 

 

Surprisingly I hated the T-54 but grinded my way through to the T-62A before all the other mediums existed (unlocked not bought). I like the E-50M a lot more because of its "reliable armor" and aim time, mainly the aim time. 

 

From reading the forums and watching videos, I think other tanks I will thoroughly enjoy will be the WZ-111-5A, WZ-132-1, IS-7, AMX M4 mle. 54, Super Conqueror, Centurion Action X

 

Any other tank I may have missed that has good/trollish armor capable of bounces and fast enough to re-alocate? 

 

I really despise campers and "snipers" - unfortunately is what you see most these days. :(

Too many people scared to scratch their paint! :izmena:

I actually call my T26E5 Patriot a "Heavium" due to its 90MM gun. I thought there was a glitch when I outfitted that tank, as it is a heavy, and it only took a medium ammo rammer.

Patriot & Liberte can both be played as Heaviums, if you're looking at premiums.

Ah! The object 277. I always forget to look up this heavy and now can see it fits the Heavium! Thinking more of tech tree tanks rather than prems as I have more than I can play with all the boxes and stuff lol.

Yes sir! Forgot about my Patriot :) - so many prems now with all the boxes and twitch prime rewards it has gotten lost in the list

I just got the WZ-111-5A and put the Christmas box crew into it for achieving level 10 atmosphere.  Haven't played it yet as I am hoping for an equipment sale soon!  Excited to try it out though.

LOL you got that right! It amazes me the amount of people that hang back and wait. I run out of patience most times and decide to rush a flank. They all say "Affirmative" but all that ends up happening is me going at it alone and them barely shooting 1 or 2 tanks out of the 5 I spot. The 5 obviously focus ME and I die in a matter of 3 seconds. Then they obviously die within the next 3 minutes and onto the next one! :D

Wow, your definition of a heavium is quite broad; I'm surprised no one has mentioned some of the true heaviums like the 430U and 113. The Kranvagn is basically a 50B with armor, so I expect it to play as a heavium too.

I though of a faster tank as to fit this bill. like in the 45 - 50 kph. include the t57. I was running with the mediums in a bunch of maps. drawing derision from my teammates. used all my ammo up to win the match. cant think of any german except the t50s.

I's take the WZ over the 113 in the first grind. And hopefully I reach Kranvagn during the on track event. I have high hopes as well that it'll fit my playstyle.

I have the T-62A, but it always seems to get owned by other med...ER...Heaviums especially the 430U with that obscene turret armor. I mean the 62A has the highest Firepower raring in the game, whatever that means. Definitely could be my play style or reflexes are not up to the tank.
