I'm almost to 12k bonds, and I have or can buy the tier 10 American medium, Chinese medium and British Heavy. I have premium tanks for training the American Medium crew (TL-1LPC) and the Chinese medium (Type-59) but nothing to train the British Heavy crew, so I'm leaning that way. What's the best one though?

In my opinion. don't spend bonds on a tank that you want to train crews on.........they all all meh tanks.  Find a premium in the shop for crew grinding.  Bond tanks are for those that just want them cuz.....

 

Bonds are too difficult to accumulate, save for something really special (whatever that means to you - besides grinding).

Training crew in special/prems is obsolete.

Its much faster to just grind credits for books, even with another crew.

You'd do better burning those bonds for equips fir your old prems.

Kpz 50t seems like a solid choice if you have 20k bonds and can wait a while.

I agree.........once you have a lot of tanks, fitting them with equipment is better value.  I'm at 26K, and waiting for something to catch my eye.  I'm not holding my breath though.

I would pick that...........do you know something that I don't regarding this choice?  I'm not good enough (or patient enough) to grind ranked for this thing......will there be another way?

Think you just have to get past the qualifier and then you can buy it for 20k bonds, going up each league (?) reduces the bonds needed up to 50% off.

I chose the FV 215b and it's decent but I wish I would have saved for the M60. Having said that, bond equipment is probably a better use of you bonds.

I've done that the last two iterations of ranked.........do you have to get through a set amount of ranked episodes before it unlocks?  sorry.........I'm a bit stupid around this process, so asking sincerely :)

Just get past the 20 pointless battles to qualify then go to rewards and buy it out right, no other battles needed.

You do what you wish and these guys are better players than I but, I am proud to say I spent my fist set of bonds on the FV215.  It is still a very viable tank, for Tier X, IMHO, and for me personally.  The other two on the list are not bad choices either and I am half way back to getting the M60, as my second pick for a bond tank.  I wish you the best in your decision and I know I wasn't a lot of help but I simply stated the obvious: Don't count either one of them out but ask yourself, am I better at medium or heavy tanks and then decide if you even want a tank or do you want the equipment more.  Take care.

The one that offers the most utility and has good overall performance so immediately that excludes the FV215B due to the soft hull that is prone to ammo racks and fires. M60 is more of a status symbol and collectors item while the 121B is just another soviet style medium. I would save the bonds for another month or so until everyone finds out what is being added and if anything being taken out.

If you listen to the poll and buy the FV you're going to be hardcore disappointed. 

M60 is unremarkable, you can get a better M48. 

121B is the only one I got, and there's also nothing remarkable about it after the 140 and 121 buffs. 

 

Out of all 3, if you had to get 1, I'd still recommend the 121b over the other two.

I already have the FV and the M60 looks fun but I have the M48. The 121 does not appeal at all as I have a full stable of Chinese and Soviet meds...Waiting on something better in the shop to come out later.

Negative, you need to get past the first set AFTER the qualifiers to buy the KPZ
