None of them particularly appeal... but probably the T14.

I couldn't wait for an aswer so I bought the Excelsior. I remembered someone here saying they did real well with it. I checked the specs. it does good damage, which is something I like. I can tolerate slower loading in favour of good damage, and it has good mobility. the Church3 is slow. and some things I didn't like about the T14, I can't remember now, lol

Excelsior is a great tank when it comes to mobility, gun depression, and front/rear armor.

Not so good for DPM, accuracy and pen. For example, my experience after 800+ games in it is that regular AP has a 50% chance of not penetrating KV-1 side armor. Thats SIDE armor.

 

Its aiming circle is huge so those who like to camp and snipe behind bush won't do well in it.  You have to be close enough to the red team in order to have any degree of confidence of hitting the target. Against tier 6 tanks and heavily armored t5 like KV-1, you have to hit not only the target but the weak point.

 

Blitzstars says I am rank 75 in it. :harp:

Yeah, I've been wondering about that rank thing for a while now. What does it mean? A few of my tanks in BlitzStars have a number under the column 'rank' and I really have no clue what it is.

I'm rank 27 in M6, 64 in Type T-34, 68 in Churchill III, and 70 in T1, in 30 day specs. then goes to 85 and up

 

btw, I started a new account, to start afresh. I was a unicum, but now i'm just under 60% and win8 Very Good, and win7 Great.

yes, I've noticed the same. been surprised at no pen on close shots at KV1 side. it has resulted in my getting killed once or twice  :( Generally I hate coming up against KV1 in anything. I usually only go after them only if they're damaged, unless there is no choice of course

 

Its aiming circle is huge so those who like to camp and snipe behind bush won't do well in it.  You have to be close enough to the red team in order to have any degree of confidence of hitting the target.

 

I can't say I've noticed that. I usually wait for the circle to shrink to it's smallest, if possible

I already have it. I find it's just a bit too sluggish for my liking

I have the Churchill III and Excelsior on my main account and they are both good tanks - good credit grinders at tier 5. The only one I have yet to try is the T14 but many suggest this is the best of the three and judging by how many of them I see, I would imagine that to be the case.
