 Löwe

The Löwe is a Tier VIII Premium heavy tank. It has an excellent gun for a Tier VIII heavy with better accuracy & penetration compared to a Tiger II’s top gun. The excellent view range allows you to earn credits quickly.

The tank’s upper glacis armour is strong enough to withstand 122mm of penetration and its well-sloped front of turret can bounce of shells even from Tier IX TDs.

Pros:
  • Excellent accuracy
  • Excellent gun for a Tier VIII heavy
  • Better accuracy and penetration than what Tiger II's top gun
  • Very strong gun mantle (comparable to JagdTiger's superstructure)
  • Excellent money-maker
  • Excellent view range
  • Upper glacis is strong enough against IS's 122mm
  • Well sloped front of the turret can bounce even Tier IX guns from TD's
Cons:
  • Large size, easy artillery target
  • Large lower glacis
  • Catches fire easily
  • Tank has under average HP/weight ratio
  • Upper glacis isn’t strong enough to resist guns with 200mm or higher penetration guns

 


 

FCM 50t

Take the FCM 50t if you're looking for a French tank that can aid your transition from medium to heavy tanks. This Tier VIII heavy runs at a maximum speed of 51km/h and can provide you with the familiarity of a medium tank's speed. On the plus side, it has a decent gun that penetrates 159-265mm of armour. The tank can put up a good fight with excellent aim time, accuracy, and reload time.

One of the tank's drawbacks is its low damage for its tier. The large size makes the tank bad at performing sneak attacks or taking cover.

Pros:
  • High top speed, combined with quick acceleration
  • Excellent tank traverse, can turn on a dime
  • Great penetration, better than even the Panther II
  • Good credit maker, due to the high DPM and accuracy combined with cheap ammo costs
  • Great view range
  • Great rate of fire, when used with trained crew/BiA/Rammer
  • Decent gun depression/elevation
  • Good accuracy
  • Special matchmaking that makes Tier IX the highest it can get against, allowing it to penetrate most tanks it faces
  • Excellent tank for support on medium wolfpacks, much like the other high tier French heavies
  • Great speed combined with relatively high weight makes it good for ramming, especially versus medium tanks
  • Large tracks can soak damage fairly reliably. When turning corners, you can make enemies shoot your tracks
Cons:
  • Average armour for a heavy, though very good compared to tier 8 mediums
  • Giant silhouette, many forms of cover are not particularly effective, and artillery has no problem hitting you
  • Low alpha damage
  • Prone to module and crew damage
  • Priority target for artillery
  • Ammorack can be damaged easily, safe stowage skill for loader or/and wet ammorack equipment is recommended for use

 


 

 KV-220

The KV-220 is a Tier 5 heavy tank from the Soviet Tech Tree.

Although it has low penetration and a weak gun, it has potential to be a serial killer in battle. Be familiarised with weak spots of other tanks and you'll have a great chance of dominating the enemy.

Its armour is strong on the front and sides. But when driving this tank, remember: "Arty hates you." They will find you, and they will shred you to ribbons. Angle yourself well and keep moving to avoid getting hit.

Pros:
  • Strong armour
  • Well-angled armour can bounce shots
  • Fast reload speed
  • Ramming techniques can be used
Cons:
  • Weak penetration against better-armoured foes
  • Low accuracy makes it bad at sniping
  • Weak damage

 

T-127

The T-127 tank has one of thickest hull and turret armour in the game for its tier with a slightly sloped frontal armour that will allow you to bounce shots off from tanks of the same tier and take multiple hits without much trouble. If you use cover and time your shots, this tank has great sustainability in close combat which allows you to take on multiple opponents.

It is also equipped with a gun that has a good rate of fire and can penetrate most tanks of similar tiers. While it is slower than the other Soviet light tanks, this tank is much more at home on the front lines than its faster and more agile siblings. Its weakness lies in the rear of the turret so avoid exposing this area to your opponents.

Pros:
  • Solid armour can easily bounce shots
  • Good rate of fire
  • Turret traverses quickly
  • Quite mobile for the amount of armour it has
Cons:
  • Lower speed and manoeuvrability than other light tanks
  • Poor signal range
  • Driver hatch at front is a big weak spot

 

Valentine II

The Valentine II is a Soviet tier 4 premium light tank. Don't let its looks fool you. This tank may look small, but it has strengths and weaknesses similar to those of heavy tanks. It also has great armour and has 380 HP which is generous for its type and tier.

You can choose to lead the charge with this tank's strong armour and high rate of fire. Spearheading an assault alone is not recommended, so team up with a TD or an ally with a better gun for best results.

Try to avoid attention from enemy snipers and arty. The Valentine II can't run with its slow speed. But it can hide well because of its small size.

Pros:
  • Heavy armour with few weak spots
  • High HP
  • Easy to camouflage in bushes and behind rocks
  • Fast gun/track traverse
  • High rate of fire
  • Decent damage and gun depression
  • Good matchmaking
Cons:
  • Gun is weak against tier 4s
  • Weak engine
  • Low speed limit
  • Low ammo capacity

 

Churchill III

The Churchill III is a Soviet tier 5 premium heavy tank. Although slow, it has devastating firepower! It has a high rate of fire at 26.25 r/m which can down opponents quickly. Look out for weak spots and bully those pansies into submission! Another great feature that makes this tank a keeper is that it generates a lot of EXP, which makes it a great tank for training your crew.

But like most bullies, the Churchill III could only pick on tanks of its tier and under. Make a run for it when you see higher-tiered heavies or when you feel that enemy arty is trying to push you off the playground.

Pros:
  • Armour is highly effective against tier 4s
  • Largest HP pool of any tier 5 tank
  • Very high rate of fire, reasonably accurate even while moving
  • Frontal weakspots easily hidden by hull angling
  • Generates a high level of EXP, which speeds crew training
  • Cheap ammo and repair costs
  • Preferential matchmaking means it only sees up to Tier 6 battles
  • Very large ammo capacity
Cons:
  • Moves, accelerates, and rotates slowly
  • Low alpha damage
  • Barely-adequate penetration values
  • Poorly-protected turret
  • Mostly unsloped armor
  • Priority target for artillery
  • Gun reloads faster than it can aim

 

Matilda IV

The Soviet tier 5 Matilda IV is a medium tank, but should be played like a heavy. Although this tank has great armour, high HP, and can unleash some serious damage, it is slow. You will need superb battle instincts to know where to position this tank so it can be a valuable piece in your team's victory.
A Matilda IV can deal 83-138HP of damage - this helps it to defeat lower-tiered light and medium tanks with ease. If you feel like taking on stronger opponents, team up with a heavy tank and protect your ally's flank.
Pros:
  • Superior rate of fire, aim time and accuracy
  • Amazing gun depression
  • Thick, well-angled armour and high HP
  • Fast turret traverse
Cons:
  • Limited top speed and acceleration
  • Low alpha damage
  • Low penetration
  • Fairly low ammunition capacity
