Hello forumers, with Black Friday approaching, I thought it would be appropriate to do a BEST list for the tier X heavy tanks.  Given their meta popularity, tier X heavies are what many public players strive for because of their firepower and armor.  You may be thinking about how to spend your saved credits on a black friday discount, so without further ado, let's begin!

 

See how things have changed! Found below is the original list for this specific topic, written over a year ago!

*Note: Reviews are done in the style of WoTLabs.  

 

What do you think is the best tier 10 heavy?  How do you think the revealed WZ-111 5A will fit in? Let me know!

For me , the t57 heavy holds a special place.

Even though it may be in the play for fun division, I still like it. 

With some mediums to back me up, it is extremely effective in close quarters combat.

It's also less prone to he unlike the AMX.

 

For the Wz-111 5a, I expect a hull-down monster with 7 degrees of gun depression , with a gun that can rival the t110e5, based on the stats on PC. 

A video on the potential of the Wz-111 5A:

The T95E6 is not a true heavy. It’s far more of a medium tank with heavy tank hitpoints. It’s mobility is often understated. It’s has a solid gun and decent rate of fire and the giant tumor on top can and does get troll bounces more than you’d think. I’d bump it to the play for fun division as it is quite enjoyable to play. It’s definitely not a good frontline heavy though and shouldn’t be played like one.

E6 has 374 HEAT pen with CS, significant better than the Mk6 at 326 with CS on APCR.

This is the first time I agree with the placement of every single tank in the categories. I may disagree with the exact placing of some of the vehicles in their categories, but I have to say it's a very accurate list.

 

I haven't seen the E5 very much at all recently, but I imagine with the new consumables, it's capable of some serious firepower. That said, I'd put the E5 above the WZ-113. I think they're good candidates for the Stat Padder list, but the 113's DPM, acceleration, and armor is an amazing combo. Yes, it does have a mid mounted turret, bad traverse, and limited gun depression; but I'd put that above the E5's lack of DPM, weaker turret, and the 38 kph speed limit. They're basically neck and neck.

 

I'd also put the T57 under the Maus. The gun...is unbelievable. It's so solid that I can barely have any complaints about it. I know it's a support heavy, but it dishes out its clip so well that you start racking up massive damage numbers and the enemy doesn't even seem to realize the potential power of the tank. It's incredibly useful to have at the end of a match, being able to put out 1200 damage in 5 seconds. In addition, you can 2 clip any tank in the game except the Maus (with enough highrolls, I guess it's possible as well). That means that it's not even that bad in a brawl if each tank is at full HP, to be able to deal 2400 damage in 30 seconds is also pretty amazing. I'm personally putting up pretty big numbers in it, so that could be part of my opinion.

 

Other than that, I think the list is perfect. Let's be real folks. The T95E6 wants to be a faster E5, but falls short pretty massively. You can't justify 5 extra kph for all the armor that's stripped off. Besides that, the E5 has better gun dispersion and aim time, and 8 degrees of gun depression with an actually strong turret vs 10 degrees of gun depression with a very weak turret isn't even close.

I love both my German pie eaters and I'll never understand what people see in he E100 over the VK 72. Other then side scraping and a little dpm advantage I think the Vk is better in every way. E100 is just all weak points and yes, the VK has its weak points but compared to the E100 they are tiny. Maybe not a nub friendly tank and not op, but just an easier drive then the E100.

 

Also the WZ-113 is an example of a tank the is worse then the sum of its parts. Not sure I'd put it that high. Sure its has a good gun but so much harder then most tanks to bring that dpm to bear.

As much as people praise the 215b, I still can’t make it work... Other than that, I agree with pretty much everything on this list.

T95E6 reminds of a soft or feminist man.  But I like the spit the E5 got, I love it and think it’s a excellent tank

Now I hope I can finish my IS-4 grind before the nerf hammer/power creep  hits it. I think I am going to have a whirl at the French autoloaders next. I know I am mediocre at the regular meds and heavies so I might as well find out if I can bring the overall average of the French heavies down as well.

Good stuff as always DMG thanks.

I just realized I don’t use any consumables on E5.  
 

Does that make a real difference?   Which one’s do you recommend?

 

Also, I haven’t changed my provision in forever.  Should I change those as well ? (i.e. sandbag armor?).  
 

Finally, what clicked in 4 years that makes you like E5?

I don't know actually.  At some point, something clicked in my brain, and I was ready to play it.

Do you run the Classic double food, good fuel; or swap out the 3% food for the Protective Kit? I saw you running Defense, and I've never played the FV215b, so I have no idea how fragile the crew is.
