Both are good, but I haven't driven the indien.

I like light tanks so personally I love the Ru 251. Fastest tank in the game, brilliant HE penetration, Its just a wonderful machine. If you do go with it, the gun depression only goes all the way down on the sides, so use ridge lines where you can get your tank smaller and harder to hit. Also to maximize the gun depression, turn to the side lol.

Its a rather easy grind, might be slightly frustrating grinding it, but you only gotta research tracks and engine.

I personally dislike the IP, haven't driven the RU.  I'd tell you to avoid the IP.

I dont know much about both,  just that the Indien Panzer has one of the lowest average win rates in the game.

The RU is relatively unique with its speed and acceleration and light tank camo combined with the best HE pen outside of the high tier Brits. It is a tank experience not to be missed. The Indien was the hardest of the Tier 8 meds for me to manage so my WR in it is awful, but now that I understand it's strengths a bit better, I think I could make it sing, but I would rather drive other tier 8 meds. If you had to choose between the two, there is no question about it. The RU is a unique experience while the Indien is a marginally interesting differentiation on the typical tier 8 med theme.

I've only driven both less than 50 games and I get in trouble with RU as I tend to be too aggressive.  Indien is a pretty fantastic med, but don't just trust me, read what DMG had to say:  http://forum.wotblit...__fromsearch__1

I played the ip a long time ago and found it kinda mediocre at best but i think it has been buffed ever since, the ru has a very high skill ceiling cause you can't really play it like a medium since it has 0 armor so in the end you should decide between whether you like mediums or lights.

Depends on your skill level. RU has greater potential due to the mobility and HE but can easily get you killed for the very same reasons. I prefer the RU but the indien is a solid tank.

RU is a keeper tank. Unique but with a high skill cap. The Indien Panzer is the best or second best (t44) tech tree tier 8 medium but all tech tree mediums are very sub par for tier 8.

who cares about credits. Derp paper TDs from behind and have fun. If you really need credits, get yourself a premium tank or learn to not explode in the RU. At the very least, it is more credit positive than the t49 which simply bleeds credits (if youre using the derp. Dunno about the other gun since i never used it).

Give advice so that the person that is supposed to use it is unable to do so. Yes the guy with 1,6k battles with no premium vehicle is supposed to not care about credits. Absolute genius. Even with a premium vehicle or an account, 50k-70k on average to lose in the RU is not even worth.
