Title. I can unlock either the LTTB or the Indien PZ to use primarily in frontlines, and then grind towards their respective tier 10. Given that I am an avid light tank player but also decent at heavies, which tank should I go for? Is one relatively OP? Good money maker? etc.

With the Leop buff it might be wiser to go up that line...

Unless the EBR gets nerfed, the T-100 will be limited to being a meh pub tank. The Leo 1 is also a meh pub tank (the buff elevated it from being a trash pub tank), so I guess other than subjective fun factor they're both about the same. Personally, the Leo 1 is much more my type of tank than the T-100, but since you like lights this is probably not the case.

 

Regarding the LTTB and Indien, I don't think either are particularly good for FL, so I would pick between them based on the merit of their respective tier 10s.

I mean I just farmed 8.9k damage in an indien in FL.  Made 150k credits on it.  The gun is disgustingly good.

I like the sound of that! It seems the Indien is similarish in playstyle to my m4a1 revalorise.

Kind of.  Little better armor.  Similar speed.  Less shell velocity.  Way way way better DPM.  Mines like 2600.  A 5.3 sec reload on a 250 alpha gun at tier 8 is *nasty*.

LTTB is like a t-50-2 at tier 8 and leads to two of the best light tanks in the game. Plus, you can branch off it to T-54 and obj.140, which is 90% the sniper of Leopard but has useable armour.  LTTB is also very good at ramming EBRs and fast enough to close in after you shoot couple shots of HE at their wheels. You can easily take off over half their HP at speed. So, one is an active scout / wheelie hunter, the other is a snipey medium - what do you like playing? 

Another plus for lttb is that it can be equipped with engineering and use its speed to rush a cap. Admittedly, light tanks got a major nerf this FL, so your call op :-)

lndien panzer and STA1 in one night, one patch,  became the most powerful tech tree medium tanks. Seriously, all things considered, you have T-44, Alt 5, Pantera, and now these 2. lndien panzer has the DPM of lansen and panther ll, putting it high end among peers  -  while also having strong gun depression, acceptable armour, and high pen HE shells. So it is basically a T-44, that trades camo and mobility, for better gun depression and firepower. The only weakness l see is the view range not being 390 or 400m. Then you have STA1, which is basically the only tier 8 medium, that has a DPM of even remotely near trying to match Caernarvon A X. This thing is ridiculous now, with an healthy 19+HP/T and 275mm HEAT, while also having the 390m view range and excellent gun depression. The problem with this guy though, are KV2 and oi  (in this case oho)  Lynx / EBR75 will penetrate you with HE ammo.

 

ls this a new thing? Probably. WG WOT:  (1) Centurion buffed, giving it finally reliable turret, speed cap raised, and more DPM  (2) WG buffs T-44 to being the newly best tier 8 tech tree med.  (3) releases Pantera, probably the new best tech tree med.  (4) releases Alt 5, probably the new most popular and riveting tier 8 researchable med.  (5) STA1 and lndien panzer, fantastically buffed to challenge the ranks.  

...  ...

Clearly, much like premium tanks and tier 10, tier 8 meds are going through the flavour of the month as well.

FYI Indien Panzer gun handling is atrocious.  Look up the values in tanks.gg and compare it to the other tier 8s. 

 

However, if you don't plan on moving much and just snipe from the back, it can work.
