Have been trying to come up with a vehicle to put the Care Package Golf commander in. The German line is so "meh" anymore, I don't really have any good ideas. I have thought about reacquiring the Tiger II or the E-50, both of which I enjoyed back in the day but they are easily eclipsed by other nations's tanks these days. I had started up the Indien Panxer/Leopard PTA/Leopard 1 line in anticipation of the buff to the line in the last update, but the buff turned out to be pretty dismal. I have also considered getting the VK 100.01, although that would require me to go back to the Tiger P (ugh) to grind it out.

 

Below are the non-premium German vehicles currently in my garage. Anybody have a "I really love this German tank!" suggestion?

Tag for interest. 

 

I don't have any that I really love, and the ones that I like a lot all have commanders with more skills than the new chucklehead, so why replace them?

 

So it's going to have to be something new or re-bought.

Comes down to  your play style and what levels your current crew members are.  The PTA is rather nice since the buff.  I enjoyed that prior as well.  Either that or the E100 if you like it.  E50 series still  good, no?

The Jpanth is a fun tank at T7.  

The 45B used to be a beast, but it has suffered some from power creep(705 and masuchen say hi, as does a proliferation of heaviums that can flank the 45B easier)

VK100 is nearly as OP as the 262U last time I looked at its performance stats, though I've not tried it myself.

There are also a few T4 seal clubbers.   Luchs, hetzer, and 38t.

Finally, I am personally have a soft spot for the 3/4, even if technically it isn't a particularly good tank.

I put mine in the Panther since I unlocked it the day before I got the commander.

Same. All of my other commanders are at least as good as the care package commander.

I still like the Indien Panzer and use it quite a bit in FL, but have been unimpressed with the PTA so far. It just can't really compete with the Cent 7/1, Obj 430, etc. and my E-50M and E100 crews are already plenty good.

Believe me, nobody wants to see that...it would be too ugly for human eyes to handle. :(

 

Another thread was asking if the VK 100.01/Mauschen/Maus line. A lot of responses felt the VK was better than the Mauschen for it's tier, which is fine if that's true because I wouldn't have any desire to pursue the Maus anyways. One of the criticisms people seemed to have is that the VK is a big arty magnet, and I am already pretty magnetic when it comes to arty.

VK is a solid tier VIII.  I actually liked my Tiger P back in the day.  I’d suggest the VK and if you don’t want the MAUS, just stay at tier VIII.

That's kind of what I am leaning towards since I spend a lot of my time in Tier 8 & 9. Not a big fan of the Tiger P, but it's not terrible for Tier 7, the VK only requires 101,500 XP to unlock, and I have enough free XP to get all of its modules.

VK100 is a solid super heavy and has a great gun. 

Leopard PTA is my current favorite, snap shots have a tendency to hit. Good nobility for end of game situations. 

 

I struggled in the E50 and absolutely hated the Indian Panther (in fact all Panthers).

I have a grand total of 5 German tanks. While I may eventually get the borsig, it won't be before the commander expires. Since I already have a special commander in my VK 36.01 (H) and don't play the E 25 much, he went into my Luchs. I hope there is a Chinese commander next month. I have fewer Chinese tanks, but it needs a good commander and crew.

I put him in a 38T and started my Borsig Grind....     I put the American Commander in my T28 Proto, and my Hellcat Crew, I think when I moved that Crew to the T30....

 

Brit Commander still needs a Home though, working on that Now....

Vk is a battleship. Need to bounce shots for missions this is one to do it in. Cannon is good and it is slow. As bottom tier it is fodder for the Xs  bit as top tier it can be a monster but did I mention it is slow. The PTA is a fun tank to drive. Nice cannon and mobility but think of it as a light with a punch since a bb will penetrate what little armor it has. Great on wide open maps but cripple in cities.

I'd agree on this, though working to the Maus is worthwhile (though not, as he says, if you don't want it).  I also liked the Tiger P.

 

Of course, I also liked the E50.  Moved up to the E50M and didn't really see any difference.

 

Still may buy into that Leopard vote.

I really want to like the PTA, but haven't gotten too fond of it yet. Still like the Indien, and I really liked the E 50 way back when but it has been overshadowed by too many other Tier 9's.

That's what I thought from the research I've done on it. Me likey some armor, cause me get shot a lot!! :P

Yeah, like a lot of Tier 9 vs Tier 10 mediums, there sometimes isn't a heck of a lot of difference other than a few more HP.  Still have my E 50M though it basically just collects dust. I also have the Obj 430, T-54, Cent 7/1, Leopard PTA, and Standard B, so I guess it doesn't make much sense to reacquire the E 50.

Same here. I recruited the British commander but don't really have a good place for him ATM. Use him mostly in the Cent 5/1 for now.

 

Barring any new revelation I think I will go rebuy the Tiger P and get to work on the VK 100.01. I'm also working in the Golf missions in the KT to get some German blueprints so that should help cut down on some of the research. Thanks for all of the feedback, I appreciate it!!!
