Still thinking about this tank. I love the Indien Panzer, just trying to figure out if the 58 is a better Indien.

 

Yes, there's more frontal armor (less sides and rear) on the turret, but it's LARGER than the Indien's. I think the best thing about the Indien's turret is that it's so small.

 

You can get the 58 and the M10 which appears to be garbage for 10.5k of gold. OR you can permanently enrich the Indien for 12.5k if you want to make more credits.

 

Yes, they could nerf a tech tree but I don't think you'll ever have to worry about nerfing the Indien.

On paper they are pretty close to the same. I have  both and have driven both recently. 

IMHO the 58 plays more like a STA-1 with strong frontal armor. You really have no side armor so you will and can be penned by HE from just about every one. I love the 58 it is a great tank. Very underrated. Play it hull down, work you ridge lines, abuse your gun depression and avoid brawling if you can. 

If you buy I would suggest skipping the Panther/M10 bundle and just go for the 58.

Just picked one up. Really like it and it makes very good credits, tons of fun to play too.

Kinda sad when you notice it has 1350 hp as compared to 1450 for CDC or 1400 for the 59 Patton.
Camo net is for cowards.

But the difference is the 58 is an exceptional tank.  
  I got mine at the outset - 77% WR and 2k avg dmg. 
 

The gun position in the turret is way more effective than the Indien.    There was a thread on this at first release.  I overlaid the Pz58 and Indien and you can see why the 58 turret is more effective hull down using gun depression.
