With the dynasty even I have enough bonds to get the FV215b.  I cant decide weather to get that or save up the remaining bonds needed for the M60.

I had enough to get both I went with the FV because that Tumor is going to be fatal in all but the most extreme sniping.

Well the FV has a rear mounted turret so you would think its good for sidescraping but it has these glaring weak spots on the hull that kind of ruin it, look at the armor layout and you'll see what I mean. I think the M60 is probably the better bet if you don't mind saving some more.

I'd save the bonds for something else frankly.

Well it isn't exactly well armoured anywhere so the tumor is kind of moot.

The 215B is nearly strictly a Tank Destroyer, if you are forced to fight someone within brawling distance, they will penetrate you no matter what.

 

The M60 is at least allowed to move around the map, but you are forced to use distance and mobility.

Neither of them are worth the bonds to be honest.  The 121B isn't worth it either.

I'm after the M60 myself....    I liked the Mobility and Gun Handling on it....     It's kind of like an American Leopard I Overall without the Damage the Leo has now....

 

215B isn't Bad, but of the 2 I think the M60 is the Better of them....

I changed FV215b

The FV215b is easy to drive and is a flexible heavy tank

dont buy any of the tanks and spend the bonds on purple equipment to make your other tanks way better. the M60 is the only one of the bunch thats kinda worth the bonds and even then id buy a full purple set for my EBR or T100 first or a Rammer and vstab for a 5A or something

Save them for when there is new things in the shop. The E50m/leopard is far superior that the m60 and doesn't require bonds and the fv runs out of ammo fast due to low ammo capacity and high reload speed.

If you get the 215b, you should be prepared to get ammo racked. A lot.

Fires too, bring along some marshmallows.  The gun handling on it is absurdly good.

This is true. The gun does make up for it.

The gun is BOSS.  I had this tank when it first came out, armor wise it got waaaaay better, but lost about 2 rounds per minute in the process.  Not near as many fires, everyone on TS used to laugh at every hit setting me on fire.  Entire tank was a matchbox dipped in gasoline.  First tank I ever got de-crewed in, got splashed by an su 14-1 for 11 damage on Prok, was puzzled cause I had pretty much full health but couldn't move.  Only when I heard my toon mates cackling did I put 2 +2 together.  Over the course of owning the tank, I routinely shelved it due to said fires and ammo racks, testing it out occasionally.

IMO, both tech tree X's will be better if bonds are spent on purple equipment instead

Personally, I'd buy equipment or save for the release of new bond tanks.

The 215b suffers in comparison to every other Tier 10 heavy tank.  As has been offered, it seems to be setup as an awesome side-scraping tank, but you'll only succeed against those ignorant of the enormous weak spots you expose when side-scraping.

 

The M60 is interesting and a little more playable, but is still weak as compared to the tech tree relative, M48.

 

If you are not a tank collector, get either the Super Conqueror, the M48, or both and use the bonds for purple equipment.

I would honestly wait, I was watching the WoT live stream and asked, they are going to be rotated soon. May not be in the next month or two, but they'll be switching soon.

The 215 is a bit trash. Good side scraper, but no gun depression, and gets set on fire a lot.

The M60 has the big tumor on top that makes it hard to work ridges, but isn't awful.

And the 121 is... meh.. not great, but not terrible.

If it's burning a hole in your pocket, I'd say M60 and grind the Super Conq. Otherwise hold off a bit and see what they flip to.

On the flip side the m60 may not be available again for a VERY long time.
