T-25 is good. Finally got a tank from a chest!

Matilda IV is my favorite T5 premium by far.

SU-85I, T14, or T-25 from the tech tree.  Ram II or Angry Connor if you find them for sale.

No, not the T-25, the dpm is so bad that you can’t even carry your team.

It's the gun, you'll need to fire off a bunch of apcr to make it work at times ...  That makes it harder to earn credits.  May I suggest the T-25 in the tech tree when it goes on sale next?  Typically about half price too!

 

Or you can get the T-25 from crates like I did...

And yes DPM is garbage even with provisions + rammer

Valentine II is a fun tank and one of the premiums I only rolled all ACPR in (even after the nerf). Even doing that with premium time you will make money.

 

You want a fun Tier V premium with trollish armor and fast rof go for the Ram II. It's a great tank.

​DPM on the T-25 is fine.  It is basically the same as the M4, Pz IV, Pz V/IV and the other general purpose mediums.  It is a very solid choice if you like mediums.  I have a bunch of the tier 5 premiums, and like the all except the MBP, and even that isn't awful after the latest buff. 

 

T-25 very good top speed, decent gun, good gun depression, turns a bit slow for a medium

Excelsior and T14 - both mobile heavies with good armor for tier.  Both lack a little in the penetration department.  These 2 are my favorites.

Churchill III - solid tank, but boring.

My fav T5 tank is the Pz V/IV.

Rate of fire is really ordinary but the ramming capabilities and the armor are what make this tank great...

I once came over a ridge on Falls Creek and WHAM! All seven reds were there. Sat on the ridge and wiggled. Got three of them then backed up. Survived. :justwait:

Ramming is hilarious as well... an AMX ELC rammed me at full speed with full health and died. Didn't even have to shoot. I lost 50 HP... :teethhappy:

I got seven kills in it as well... a battle on mines ended up in a 6 on 1 battle. I won. This tank is insane. (EDIT: the 1 was me...)

If you have less than 5000 battles, it is NOT COOL to have a tier 10. Having a Tier 10 does not make you good. If you think you're good, you probably aren't.

The APCR is only 800 credits per round on the Valentine II.  And you’ll only need it against other Valentines, Matildas and AMX 40s. 

 

I just went and played mine for a quick refresher and got a 1st Class, High Caliber and Steel Wall. I fired 27 shots scoring 2 kills without using a single round of APCR. I ended up making 27,900 net profit. 

 

:great:Nice:great:

 

I'm 2-0 in mine, avg damage 783. First Class Mastery, survived both wins, 90% hit rate, max killed in battle, 4.

Total killed in 2 battles 8.

 

 I just plane forgot about it. :(

I have 7 tier 5 premium medium tanks. My favorite use to be the 2 Matilda's but they are just way too slow.

#1 Shadoobie!!!!! Because ........:izmena: Shadoobie!:izmena:

 

Tech Tree :

#1 Pz V/IV..Ram Ah Ram Ram

#2 T-25 My very first premium and I couldn't make it work in +2/-2 mm. But now it shines! This tank can carry a

tier 5 battle and with Improved Assembly, 810 hit point. :great: Took me a long time to get this baby to 50%

after being in the low 40's for such a long time. 

 

 

I never could make the Ram II work, Aced it but still under 50%. Starting out 0-8 with it didn't help. I,m 24-26-1 in it.

Please refrain from giving tank advice ... just because you don’t do well in one. Your problem with the t-25, and many other tanks, is not the tank.
