I have 1.5 million credits in the bank and I’m looking for a tank that can pay back its price, fun to play, or easy to play. I’m thinking the T71, since that would be my second autoloader, but I’ll take suggestions.

All those Russian lines lead to good tanks, particularly for newer players, although the tier 7 heavies are not great tanks. The 43 is a great tank. The 71 and the 25/2 is not a great tanks for new players and the 71 will probably not pay for itself.

I voted kv3 but if you grind it, grind along with the IS line, otherwise your tier 9 experience in the st1 is going to suck a lot. You need to grind the is3 gun so the tank plays decent while stock. Otherwise you need that free exp to get the is3 gun on the st1.

I think the T71 is getting buffed, good timing for it now.

Everyone poops on the T71 and the T69 after it.  The T71 is much better than the French AMX at the same tier and more fun to play IMHO. 

 

I just picked up the T69 and now that I have the top gun, it's fun to pay as well. Not as peppy and manuverable as the T71, but those shells pack a pretty good alpha. 

 

If you like light tank auto-loaders, I'd go with the T71.  That said, I also enjoy the SP1C.  It's got a 2 shot auto loader that is very fun to play as well. Just watch out for yolo rammers. The RU251 after the SP1C is pretty fun to play, though a little challenging getting used to the wacky gun depression.  The RU251 has HE with very high pen.  It's fun putting 300+ damage shells into the back of every tank you can sneak up on. 

 

I hate the KV3, it's just not fun to play. It's not nearly as good as the other Heavies at the same tier. I'd rather play the IS, it's faster, and if you run the lower alpha gun, you can mitigate its propensity to bounce all over the place by not waiting forever for a reload.

 

I am looking forward to the T25/2 as I like turreted TD's.  

 

I have a lot of fun in the Rudy, so the T43 should be pretty fun as well. 

 

My favorite Tier 7 Med is the T-34-1  I just get along with that thing so well.   Peek a BOOM!

 

Soo... I waffled around a bit there, and probably didn't help at all..

Just curious: whats the play style of the T71? Go up to a tank, take a shot, and unload all three shells to trade damage? Or a hit and run style like the T49, except with an auto loader?

try to play it long range and if you you are close dont stay out of cover long...you can get HE'ed from anywhere...it is a peek a boom style tank...try to bait out shots and unload on your enemy when he shot...it is fast so be sure to use its mobility ro your advantage

Ive tried to shoot HE at T71s’ broadsides before using the SU152, but my HE gets absorbed by tracks pretty darn often, doing only a measly 360 splash. Is this common? Also, can the T71 outspot most other mediums and lights?

Yes, rng fails me a lot. I bounce m46 Patton HEAT shells off the backs of manus, miss 5 meter away KV2 shots, run into walls when firing at someone on the move (or even a enemy heavy tank) and get obliterated as I separately try to get into cover.

The tank moves fast backwards too! Over 20 kph back wards!
