JagdTiger 8,8 

Many opponents will run for cover when they see a 8,8 cm Pak 43 Jagdtiger. Its rounds can penetrate armors that are 152-252 mm thick. Not to mention, the 11.1 second reload gives it an extremely high rate of fire. High accuracy also allows you to take down enemies easily by attacking weak spots. This TD can deal 180-300 HP of damage.

Although the Jagdtiger is powerful, it is extremely slow and has weak armor in the sides and rear. Use this for sniper roles and find good hiding spots to avoid detection. Long-range strategies are your best bets. Better yet, find a good team that can protect your sides.

Pros:
  • Very strong superstructure
  • Extremely precise gun that easily hits weak spots
  • Outstanding reload time and consequently DPM (2666 DPM base)
  • Ability to hull down
  • Excellent aiming time
  • Decent armor for Tier VIII
  • Excellent view range
  • Good amount of hit points
  • Thick tracks can absorb damage
  • Can engage multiple frontal targets easily - great for holding chokepoints
Cons:
  • Slow traverse speed
  • If "tracked" while going full speed, the momentum of such weight will turn the tank 90°, exposing its potentially thin sides
  • Poor Alpha damage - cannot compete with "peek-a-boo" tactics, and most halfway decent players won't just sit and let you shoot them repetitively
  • Can easily catch on fire if hit in the lower glacis
  • Side armor is weak
  • Large superstructure combined with slow speed make this tank very easy for artillery to hit
  • Immobility combined with lack of turret makes this tank have a huge lack of versatility

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 armor. 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 it can approach a 6 second reload (or 10 RoF)
  • 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 armor 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
  • Expensive to buy
  • 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


 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 armor 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

IS-6

 

The IS-6 is a Tier VIII premium heavy tank which belongs to the Soviet tech tree. This tank has decent mobility for a Tier VIII heavy – especially when compared to the Löwe. It packs a punch with its high damage and can prove to be a lethal weapon in close proximity engagements. It is the 2nd highest DPM among Tier VIII premium heavy tanks ranked after the KV-5.

It has thick, well-angled armor from the front & sides. Its weakness lies in the rear armor where the fuel tanks are located. But if you're careful enough to prevent exposing this area to your opponents, you'll be kicking up a storm with this vehicle on the battlefield.

Oh, and did we mention what a credit-maker this machine is?

Pros:
  • Second best damage-per-minute of the Tier VIII premium heavy tanks, after the KV-5
  • Good alpha damage
  • Preferential matchmaking (Tier IX maximum)
  • Thick, well-angled armor from the front and sides
  • Good credit profitability
  • Decent mobility for a Tier VIII premium heavy tank – especially when compared to the Löwe
  • Crew slots match those of all the IS heavy tanks except the IS-7
Cons:
  • Low ammunition capacity
  • Expensive ammunition
  • Below average gun penetration
  • Terrible accuracy and aim time
  • Crew slots do not match those of the IS-7 and do not include a radioman

KV-5

The KV-5 is a Tier VIII heavy from the Soviet tech tree. It has a strong hull and turret armor. This makes the KV-5 a good choice for ramming strategies. If taking down an opponent's tank like a heavy-weight wrestling champion is your idea of fun, send this metal monster to your garage!

Although the KV-5 can run up to 40km/h, it needs space to execute ramming techniques. Also, beware of vehicles from higher tiers as the KV-5 cannot penetrate armor beyond 125-209mm.

Get the KV-5 if you strongly value a good defence and a tank's credit-earning capability.

Pros:
  • Strong hull and turret armor
  • Can take a lot of damage
  • Decent speed for a heavy tank
  • High HP
  • Earns a high amount of credits
  • Good rate of fire.
Cons:
  • Large size makes it a challenge to find proper hiding spots
  • Low penetration for its tier
  • Slow turret traverse
