The T6 has the highest power to weight ratio in the game, 'nuff said.

 

Also pretty good gun and that stuff, but who cares when you go 60 up a hill?

I pick Dracula because the terrain resistance is abnormal, speed of the tank, record breaking track repair without the use of repair kit or multi restoration pack, and ...the gun probably.

Dracula pros:

Excellent mobility

Excellent gun depression

Good alpha for a tier VII med

Super Swag track repairs: never waste a repair kit on them again

 

Dracula cons:

Gun is slightly lacking in all categories (DPM, gun handling, pen), but not by much in each individual category

Super thin armor

 

Van Helsing pros: 

Great DPM and clip damage for a tier VII, and good AP pen

 

Van Helsing cons:

Poor gun depression

Poor armor

Low speed for said thin armor

 

I personally feel the Dracula is an excellent tank, sure the gun is lacking, but it has the alpha to bully other meds and lights, and the mobility and gun depression allow it to pop up anywhere. I'm rocking a 66% WR and over 1700 damage per battle in it after 56 battles, and I suck with paper tanks (And that's with virtually no APCR use too)

 

Van Helsing is just as weakly armored as the Dracula, but it doesn't have the camo, mobility, gun depression, or massive alpha that other paper tanks have that allow them to avoid damage. The van Helsing will often find itself trading shot for [edited], and without the speed to move to a more favorable position. The gun is good, but it's not nearly enough to compensate for such an unexceptional tank.

I don't know guys.

 

I picked up the Helsing during the Halloween 2016 event, and it has never disappointed me. The 200x2 dmg in 10 seconds reload is freaking amazing. The autoloader has its pros and cons. One main con is that the second shot (or the first for that matter) will sometimes miss. Sucks, but usually if your reticle is in the right place, you'll get at least one hit. The pro to this is that you have 2 shots to hit someone, so most likely than not, you'll at least do SOME damage. The pen power on AP is really good, penning the frontal armor of basically every tier 7 except the T29 and sometimes the IS, and will pen most tier 8's. Using APCR does give a big boost. With APCR, you usually can pen the frontal armor of even an IS-3 Defender, if you know where to aim. Using HE is not recommended unless you're sure you can pen with it. The splash damage is almost nothing. 

 

As for the armor, it is a lot better than the Drac. The frontal plate that is sloped will bounce almost every shell if you can angle it right. I'm not kidding either, I just had a KV-5 bounce one off my frontal plate. Side armor can be really weird. I get the weirdest bounces off them, sometime even at 90 degrees. I wouldn't trust the side armor to bounce anything off though, just think of it as a plus.

 

At full speed, it can reach about 50 to 55 kmph, which is pretty good. The tracks are okay, but agility is not a strong suit here. 

 

The worst thing about the Helsing is the turret, by far. Stupid thing is very slow, don't depend on the turret to save you if a light tank starts to circle you. Also, the hit points are fairly low, at 1000. Fortunately, the turret does offer some weird spots that can't be penned easily, at least in the front of it.

 

Doing well in this tank destroyer means over 2000 damage and a kill or 2 if you're lucky. This tank destroyer is really good and it makes it easy for you. Today, I actually received Mastery in it for the first time, with 3700+ damage and 5 kills. It has taken me a long time to do so, and I've racked up 290,000 xp on it so far. 

 

I don't own the Drac, so I can't really make comparisons to it, but I do know that the Helsing is a BEAST. The overall design is stunning too, with the artwork on the sides and on the front. It looks like a collector's tank, and trust me, it's probably one of the best td's in the game, for it's tier. One time, I was tooning with a Pershing, and I got dragged into a tier 8/9 game. Guess what? We lost, but I finished with the most damage on my team, something like 1700 or so. I wasn't too surprised from this, and to be honest, that was a bad round for me.
