While the new discounts aren’t as good as the ones on RU server were, it’s still a fantastic opportunity to pick up some great tier 8 premium tanks (if you don’t have them yet) for cheap. If you are interested, here are our recommendations:
Heavy tanks: M4 Mle. 49 – Released in the time period of Defenders, Skorpions and Patriots, it follows the same trend of being better than anything else released before it. The tank is very sturdy with strong armor and a decent main gun, just watch out for that turret cupola weakspot.
Medium tanks: M4A1 Revolver – an M4 Sherman platform with a really punchy high velocity 105mm cannon. This is right up in your valley if you prefer big punchy cannons with decent reload time and gun handling.
Light tanks: German M41 Bulldog “Black dog” – While it’s not the best tier 8 light tank anymore like it used to be and it’s quite outclassed by the EBR 75 or LT-432, it still holds up quite well with a decent 90mm cannon and very useful high penetration HE shells.
Tank destroyers: WZ-120-1G FT – If you ever played the SU-122-44, this tank is very similar to that, but simply better in everything. The tank’s armor is pretty good in the front and can even hold up against some premium shells if angled correctly, while the cannon has respectable high damage paired with good enough reload time.
This list has been assembled in regards of how strong the vehicle is. However, if you prefer a crew trainer instead rather than just a strong tier 8 tank, then consider other tanks of the nation and class you are grinding.
