Maybe the AC 1 Sentinel? It is terrible at tier 5 and great at tier 4. If it was buffed in any way to help with the problem of how awful it is when facing tier V's it would make it too overpowered when facing tier IV's. Maybe Wargaming could give it preferential mm..

I'd really like to hear more about the gun mantlet on the American tanks not working. Do you have the link to the Bushka video?

Tiger 2 feels woefully inadequate compared to the Lowe let alone all the other Russian IS tanks.

The IS8 is the only tank that doesn't make the cut for me. Everything else is balanced I think; the T34 Indy is perfect right now with its fairly recent buff, I have no problems when hull down, I'm able to use the tank to its full potential.

 

a tank you should ad to your list is the Chi-to. Compared the Cromwell Berlin the tank is utter trash and is lacking compared to others

I would have to say the T-71 (granted I've only played it 3 times with 75% crew)  but a slight decrease to clip reload would help this tank be much more competitive.

You mention the 112 and seem to forget the Blaze...

 

The Blaze is Playable now but still needs more especially when it lost EGLD after the Update.

Not true.

 

Tier 5 is a monster.  Tier 7 is every bit as good as (or better than) other TDs in its tier.  Tier 9 is reportedly very strong as well.

 

The others, yeah... not fun.  But those three are.

T30 is really strong why is it on this list? Also, the IS8 is really good too that heavy scoots and bounces shells it has no business bouncing. I do agree with the112 I just hate this tank even after WG fixed the fire issues. Gun has poor pen and potatoes often.

​T-71 did just get a reload buff from around 13 seconds to 11 seconds.

I don't have a T-30, but my son who averages over 2300 damage and over 800 battles in it says it plays fine post 3.8.

HI everyone, I thought I’d write a short, highly opinionated piece on tanks that I believe are a bit weak, but if you buffed them, they would be quite strong. Most likely too strong.  As I said, many of you might disagree with some of these more controversial choices, but here goes anyway.

I agree with this.  The turret is strong enough to pull up drop 640 alpha or 920 HE and get back into cover while sometimes taking a shell in return.  If the turret was any stronger it would be OP.

T30 is strong, a T95 gun on a turret. 

Remember to hull down and aim carefully. 

T30 can do well in Tier 10 battles.

I recently went through the Russian med line post 4.0 and I do agree with your choice with the T-43. The T-43 is a good tank but it has been performing a bit poorly due to powercreep and the prammo nerf. Introduction of tanks such as the Dracula, Mod 1 and IS-X heavies have made the T-43 a very hard tank to play when lower tiered. The pen is abysmal when facing IS-X tanks and you will frequently need to switch to APCR to even have a chance of penetrating the sides. With the prammo nerf, the T-43 is outputting less and less damage per game. IS-X tanks are just a complete nightmare when facing them in the T-43. I tried running the T-43 with calibrated shells but it didn't make much of a difference and I only got 1912 average damage per game over the course of 114 battles in it. WG needs to balance this thing out by buffing the penetration.

Panther M10, it needs more than just a speed buff. The gun is still bad and prammo nerf just made the gun even worse. Would love to see a gun buff in the future.

 

Had a team mate that did 3400 dmg in his yesterday.  

 

Seems okay but yeah sure a few more buffs, I wouldn't protest.

I don't agree with the majority of this list.

 

glacial yes 100% agree that tank currently has no place in the game rn.

 

but the t34 is an extremely solid tier 8 heavy. You have to put it into perspective, random games. Chances are you'll see a player who has no clue how to pen a hull down t34. And sure the cheeks are weak and the cupola is small but think about it like this. The t34 has a tier 10 gun. Most of the time it doesn't need to aim to get a shot in. But if you want to hit a weak spot you will have to aim and the guns that are precise enough don't have the Alfa letting the t34 win the damage trade. 

 

T30 is one of the most feared TDs at tier 9 and I can personally say from experience is a rack hunter. I've racked many is8s, is3s, tiger 2s and e75s. Countless Russian Meds. It's a bit of a beast.
