I'm hoping that at some point they move Frontline around to the lesser used tiers, like tier 7. We all know that there are several clear favorites in tier 8 that have emerged. But if they did a tier seven frontline, which couple of tanks would you pick ?

 

My picks:

SU-122-44

IS-2 Berlin

AMX 13 75

Panther M10

Tiger H ? You mean VK 45.03? Or is it one of those rare premiums?

These would be my picks:

     Premium: E25, AMX 13 57, Type 62, SU-122-44, Panther/M10, AT 15A, T28 Concept, M56 Scorpion

     Regular: T29, WZ-131, AMX 13 75, T71, SU-152, T20, KV-3, Chi-Ri

 

It could definitely be fun, as there are no "beasts" in Tier VII (putting aside some people's thoughts on the E25), and most tanks are quite balanced at that Tier. As much as I'd like to see Tier variety in Frontlines, I believe Tier VII and IX would be the most interesting, but Tier VI would likely just be Type 64s and Cromwells everywhere - though, maybe TOGs for capping.

Honestly, I'd use all of my tier VIIs. I'd rather have a large selection to choose from than limit myself:

T71 DA

Eagle 7

T20

T29

Tiger I

Tiger P

Panther

Panther/M10

VK 45.03

45TP

FV201 (A45)

Challenger

KV-13

KV-3

 

I might buy back my T25/2. It's weak when facing Tier VIII and up, but within it's tier, it can handle things.

Almost Sure Bets

T71 DA / AMX 13/57 / Hotchkiss EBR - Wheelies and Autoloaders would Dominate the light category

T23E3/ Comet - Probably the "Progettos" of tier 7.  No autoloaders, but they fire fast enough that they will feel like they do.

T29 / 45TP  - Similar tanks, with the 45TP trading a little turret armor for more hull armor.  Traditionally good, and there's no reason to believe they wouldn't also be so in frontlines.

 

 

Maybes / Situational

Su-152 (122s)  The 122mm armed Su's are really only held back by the low Pen of the tanks.  Since nearly everything here should be pretty pennable, these could become pretty ferocious at long range

E25 - (The Fast, Hidey TD, similar to the UDES)

P43 Ter - (Solid all arounder, and since the only real thing holding it back is Pen, this should be pretty good where things max out at tier 7)

T-34-100 (Czech) / Leo - Not sure which, but one of them will probably fill the "Big alpha Medium"

T28 Concept - Holding corners with this thing could be glorious if few things can surpass 220 pen

Tiger P / O-Ni  - Held back by speed, a bit, but should be pretty workable.

Eagle 7

T71 DA

AMX 13 57

E25

 

I think those are the only Tier 7s I have in my garage.

 

EDIT:  Oh yeah, I guess the Type 62, but that would likely be my last choice.

LT: T71DA and AMX-13-57-- For reasons which should be obvious. Autoloading lights are gonna be little monsters.

MT: VK30.02D -- This might be a bit of a dark horse pick, but its combination of decent alpha, great DPM, excellent mobility, and trollzy armor vs some other tier 7 mediums means it should be a good brawler. Low base pen is the main drawback.

       Eagle 7 -- Good view range, great base pen, good alpha, decent DPM, and a bouncy gun mantlet. The ultimate tier 7 ridgeline warrior among tier 7 mediums. The only downside is the sluggish mobility.
     
HT: T29 -- Still the best Tier 7 heavy overall, after all these years.
       IS-2B/IS-2M -- Hardly a difference between them, or for that matter the tech tree IS. Solid all-around tier 7 heavies for which the only real drawback is lack of gun depression.

TD: SU-122-44 -- Alpha, DPM, mobility, and trollzy armor all in one monster package.
       E25 -- Does this need an explanation?

--Helms

Don't have enough tier 7s, but the VK 45.03 would certainly be at the forefront of it for me. I can almost always get consistent 3K damage games in it, the gun is outstanding, and it has fairly decent armor. 2nd pick would, of course, the KV-122. Since the map is large, having a mobile 122mm gun would be fairly useful. As for tanks I don't have, but would use, I would make use of the Comet, the S-Waffentrager, T29, and T20.

- Su-122/44

- T29
