  • Tier 7 Mediums: VK 30.02 D or T-34/100?

    So I'm stuck in a bit of a conundrum, which medium tier 7 tank should I get?

    VK 30.02 D (Germany)
    Health: 1150 HP
    Turret: 80/45/45
    Hull: 80/45/50
    Speed: 56 KPH
    Traverse: 39 deg.

    Top Gun: 8,8 cm Kw.K. 36 L/56 (Tier 7)
    Penetration: 132/171/44
    Damage: 220/220/270

    OR

    T-34/100 (Czech Republic)
    Health: 1000 HP
    Turret: 90/75/52
    Hull: 45/45/45
    Speed: 54 KPH
    Traverse: 36 deg.

    Top Gun: 100 mm VZ 44S (Tier 7)
    Penetration: 175/250/50
    Damage: 250/250/330


    I was initially leaning towards the T-34/100 because of that high pen gun, but then I looked at the VK's hull armor and the front slant and I was like: "I bet I could bounce some shots in that where I really couldn't in my 30.02 M.". So which do you guys think might be better for me?

    Keep in mind I play my mediums as fast mediums. I do a lot of poking, prodding, flanking, harrassing, or support pokey sniper.

    I don't have any opinion on the T-34/100 whatsoever, but most players that I hear from figure the 3002D is a turd. I agree with them, I found it thoroughly mediocre, and recently sold mine to free up a garage slot. Unless they branch something new off of it, I won't be buying it back.
    On the other hand, which tier 8, 9, and 10 do you want? The Czech line looks good, and seems to have a growing fan base, but if you want to eventually get the finicky and delicate, challenging but rewarding Leo I...

      You could try a third option: the Panther. Works best at long range with it's 0.32 dispersion & 13.64 rate of fire. 2/3 of people dislike it because it doesn't have "exciting" damage per hit, but some people are really good with it. It's a very heavy medium tank, so it makes it a good rammer too!! I actually embraced that & chose the Controlled Impact skill.

      Panther (Germany)
      Health: 1300
      turret: 120/60/60
      Hull: 85/50/40
      Speed: 55 KPH
      Traverse: 32 deg.

      Top Gun: 7,5 mm Kw.k. L/100
      Penetration: 198/244/38
      Damage: 135/135/175
      Weight: 45 t

        I enjoyed the Panther - still do, once in a while. Can't say I was that impressed with the Panther II, however. E50 is supposed to be excellent - except I can't make it work. E50M is supposed to be a bit of a disappointment after the E50.

          Hmm, not much damage on that Panther, but even more frontal armor, but less traverse. Hmm, maybe I'll give it a shot (once I can research past the 30.02 M).

            It's odd in ways due to it's super low damage, but ultra high range accuracy. It's got a jousting lance for a gun. Use as such ^_^

              I, uh, have to put this tank on hold for the time being. Kinda spent all my research points on researching the T29 so I can have a decent tier 7 heavy for upper tier games.
