If you like the "very slow heavily armoured" thing, I agree with RC, the AT15a is pretty good.

VK 45.03, tier for tier, is a better Tiger II at tier 7.  It's dpm isn't as good at the Tiger 1, but its armor layout is much better.

SU-100Y might be as big as a barn, but that alpha is FANTASTIC at tier 6.

AT-15A is a beast if played correctly, but you need to know how to play British heavy tds well or you won't enjoy this one.

FV201(A45), fun, but I'd only get this if 3/5/7 is changed and/or Frontlines includes a tier 7 at some point.

Skoda T 40 is the only Czech crew trainer and is decently mobile and good alpha at tier 6.

HT No 6 is decent.  It's probably better tier for tier than the Tiger 1 at tier 6.

I had the SU100Y (I don't recall selling it, but...). It's just a box tank, with no armor, no camo. But can lead to some fun gameplay, it's nice to one shot stuff. But it's not a good tank. And you have the Su 122-44 as a better crew trainer.

 

The Skoda is a good crew trainer, same slots, but it's not a great tank. Too tall maybe for it's role? I didn't have any major complains, but you can't compete with a 34-85 or a cromwell

Kinda depends on what your needs are.  Credits?  Crew grinding?

Any worth getting?  Eh ...

 

First, I'd say to try to arrange them based on the type(s) of tanks you like to play.  Then, for those now at the top, consider their credit earning, crew training potential, lines you plan to grind, etc. to help you narrow your choice down to the one or two you ultimately (might) purchase.

 

I have most of the tanks in your list.  Lately, the only one I play with any regularity (and that's not often) is the Skoda T 40.

 

I hope this helps.

1. Steyr WT  IDK

3. SU-100Y  Big Target BIG BOOM

4. KV-122  IDK

5. AC 4 Exp.  Good sniper.  Fast downhill, but not otherwise

6. AT 15A  It's an AT

7. FV201 9A45)  meh

8. Skoda T 40  Inaccurate, but only option for CZ trainer

9. HT No 6  A T6 Tiger  what's not to love besides the speed and lack of armor?

 

Are any of these worth getting?

Obviously, "it depends on what you need to train."  The SU100Y is the only one I would describe as fun enough to play just for itself.

HT 6 is beast with a respectable crew and wet ammo-rack.  Just bought the Steyr this morning and had a good win in it. Think i will like this thing but maybe, it's too soon to tell.

The 45.03 is excelent when played right. 

 

The SU-100Y is a must have. More dangerous than even the JPZE100 for its tier. Note that in strongholds for example the 100Y can one shot a hellcat using HE. A pair of SU-100Ys working together can drop any tank at the tier before they can return fire.

1. Steyr WT I don't own one but the best thing I have heard about it is "meh"

2. VK 45.03 I don't own one.  Some tell me it's better than the Tiger/Tiger P like a tier 7 Tiger 2. Others say, why would anyone want a tier 7 Tiger 2. The only one on the list that interests me and only because of lootbox gold 

3. SU-100Y only for tier 6 SH memes

4. KV-122 It's another version of the IS-2 but without the BIA crew. If you like the IS-2 Berlin and want another one, go for it. 

5. AC 4 Exp. So many other tanks do the same thing better. 

6. AT 15A Slow, painful, armor holes everywhere.  Not my cup of tea. 

7. FV201 9A45) meh. High DPM gun but not much else going for it. 

8. Skoda T 40 Please no.

9. HT No 6 for tier 6 strong holds, it's okay. 

 

Are any of these worth getting?

 My 2 cents. Hope it helps.

The VK is really the only good tank in the list.

Thank you all for your replies. I have checked the stats on a few of these tanks and i have some questions for you all

 

1. Many people recommended the VK 45.03. Would you still get this tank if you already have a Lowe? As well, only a few people seem to do really well in this tank and the stats for it at tier 7 on NA are not super. Can you tell me why you think it is a good tank? Thank you

 

2. A lot of people also recommended heavy tank number 6. However, they are about to nurf Japanese heavy tanks HE shells and I imagine that this tank does NOT play like the other Japanese heavy tanks do. Is there a reason that you would recommend this tank over just playing whatever Japanese heavy tank that you like to play? Would you still even bother with the Japanese heavy tank line considering both the nurf directly to them and the nurf to premium ammo in general?

Thank you for the recommendations. However a lot of people say that this tank is bad. Would you still get this if you also had the Scorpion G tank? If so can you tell me why. Thank you.

I have the SU100Y, and I love it.  I dont play it often.  It's not a daily driver, but probably the most fun you can have in a tier 6 match.  The number of one shot kills you can get in this thing...  It makes me giggle.
