I'm pretty much done with the Type 61 grind, only 11k of free experience needed to research the STB-1, and I was wondering if keeping it would be redundant: Same gun, but faster; more mobile; a better turret etc.

So, if someone has a good reason of why should I keep it, please advice me.

Depends if you need the silver or if you really like the tank enough to keep it.

If I only had a Baneblade....

I have enough silver to buy the STB-1, but I want to know if there is a really good reason to keep it.

I don't know, I'd for sure say the STB-1 over the Type 61. You actually get some armor, better speed, same gun and better handling and the troll turret.

I was just giving the main reasons for selling or keeping the tier 9 over the tier 10.

Sell it. You'll find a better tier 9 medium keeper. STB-1 from what I've seen is awesome!

 Screw my elders!!!!

World of Tanks a game where it's 1 versus 29. 15 reds trying to kill you and 14 greens trying to support them. The yellows are your only hope. For signature and stats visit http://wotinfo.net/en/player-stats

I'll take your advice. I'm planning to keep my Centurion 7/1, It's currently my favorite medium tank.

I sell all lower tanks except a few keepers.  Playing a game in lower tier tanks is a game you are not playing to grind up a new line.  Only tier 9's I plan on keeping are my T-54 and my E75.  Below tier 9 I prefer to keep a premium so that if I am playing a non-grinding tank, at least I can make silver or train crews.

I thought of selling it, but i don't need the silver and finally decided to keep it along with STA-1 and STB-1. Type 61 is the worst of the 3, but it's not a bad tank.

There's an advantage to keeping all 3: the play style is very similar, and if you play platooned or in a clan, you will find yourself playing confortably in case you have to take out a lower tier tank.

Currently, I won't sell a tier 7~9 tank unless I know I don't like playing it.

I kept the STA-1, but I think I'll sell the Type 61 at the end, I'll just wait for a tier X sale to buy the STB-1 and dome equipment.

I guess I'm in the minority here. I really like the 61. Had some incredible games in it. It's my go to tank for damage or for a Brother in Arm's metal. It's all in how you play it. Pop up shoot, move and do it again. That last gun is a beast and at medium to close range will pen just about anything.

I like the tank, and I'm going to keep it

kept the centurion 7/1 and have the AX and the 202p...it feels redundant as well but still love it

Different tank, different style

Only regret was not keeping the STA-1 before buying the Type-61, so I won't make the mistake twice
