Which should I buy while they are on sale for gold? I only have 4015 gold, short 10 for the Panther V/M10 so that's out of the question.

T-34-85M because you can train Russian medium crews with it. There are 4 Russian medium tech branches which means you'd have plenty of reason to be running the 85M every day that you play.  That alone makes it worth spending your gold.  And the T-34-85M is a good tank for Stronghold playing if you are into that.  And if you aren't, this tank is a great reason to be.

T-34/85M is a trainer but also a top performer at T6. Means you will be training crews faster and making more credits while doing it.

The T34-85M may be the best tank in it's tier, premium or otherwise.

I have all three of these tanks.  I like all three.  My advice would be to get the T-34-85M before the other two.  Of these three tanks my T-34-85M gets the most use.  It's my "goto" tank for Tier VI Stronghold skirmishes.  It's a decent credit earner and crew trainer, as well.  It has all five possible crew slots covered for Soviet mediums.

 

The M56 Scorpion is a unique tank and fun to play.  It's one of my most played Tier VII's.  But it's uniqueness requires particular attention to how you play it.  It's not like most of the other US TD's.  So, you make adjustments.  No real turret, so it's not as effective as a "camp bush" sniper like a T-67 or Hellcat.  It has virtually no armor so it's not a "bruiser" like a T-28 or T-95.  You're constantly repositioning (not a bad thing to do), peeking ridge lines, take a shot and run, etc.  And it's biggest shortcoming (in my opinion) is the 4 man crew (no Radio Operator).  Most higher tier US TD's have 5 man crews.  So, the Scorpion falls a bit short for crew training purposes.  But it is a fun tank.

 

I don't see much use for the HT VI unless you're going up the Japanese heavy lines.  My HT VI probably has a year's worth of dust on it from sitting in the garage.
