I have always been kind of a heavy tank kind of guy , but it seems some of the old school tier 10 heavies arent that good solo these days . Mainly the is4 comes to mind right off the bat . I bought the wz 111 5a recently and its probably my favorite tier 10 for one big reason . most of the time in a 1v1 situation you will come out on top . Not many tanks are going to be able to circle you , and given its dpm which i think is 3,300 or so with rations . Even if you run across a yolo tier 10 td you can still make him regret his life choices lol . 

 

Ive been wondering what would be a tier 10 medium that has similar dpm or close to it ? 

I see mediums  seem to be the preferred tank class of unicums .

 

The 430u appears to be popular on the forums but from what ive noticed in battle , they get wrecked most of the time.

how is the 121 these days and what can the dpm get up to maxed out ? I never see these in battle anymore . 

im not nation particular , just looking for something that can fight its way out of a corner with raw dpm if need be .

I'm very far off being a unicum in tier 10 mediums but I have a few.

Based on your requirements obvious answer is ob140 or perhaps the stb1. Both have good maneuverability and short to midrange gun handling. Long range they start to miss where others wouldn't as much

121 has frustrating gun handling. Really, that 430u is probably the best.

If you want dpm go for pretty much any of the Russian mediums.

The 121 has a crippling lack of gun depression that can make it hard to put its dpm to use.

I've always been a fan of mediums and dabbled with some heavys, but I am really starting to favor heav-iums. I find they have a blend of capabilities that make them more adaptable in any situation. They can be found in both classes but have the distinct trait of mobility AND useable armor. They may not all be DPM specific, but make up for it in other ways. 

 

Some examples I believe are:

 

E50M

M48A5

Obj. 430U

Chieftain

5a

E5

Obj 277

H.M. (140/T62/430)

I recently got the M48 Patton and I'm loving it. It might as well be a heavy tank with its size and speed. View range and gun are fantastic. Takes snap shots better than any other tank I have turret armor can reliably bounce shots. I think it's dpm is in the 3.5k range.

K-91 or Obj 140 the 430U is good at armor but funfactor and shoot on the move Obj 140 is unmatched.

Now, I'm no unicum (I usually pull blue numbers in tier 10), and I don't have the 430U, but I would say the 430U is probably one of THE best tanks in-game at the moment. It's pulling +60% w/r according to wotinfo, and it more or less seems to be made of unobtainium whenever I meet.

And that's exactly why you should wait and see what the 430U is like AFTER THE NERF. In the meantime, get the E5 if you want a great tier X heavium. :)

I dont really see why it needs a nerf though , I have not seen them dominating battles .Besides with all the op tds running around at tier 10 I think its fine.

Not saying they dont but its not a hard tank to fight against , well in my 5a lol .

 

 

Is the 140s dpm the same on console as pc ? Tanks gg has it at 3,500 dpm when maxed out without rations . Seems a bit retarded lol .

Don't see it much because it was nerfed (and rightfully so) and all those who saw it lost their minds saying its trash because it was.

Echoing some of the above, if you like the 5A's dpm, the Obj 140 and Patton are probably the top choices.

Fantastic DPM yes, but the lowest alpha at 330.  At tier X it takes a lot of shots to make decent damage. Not saying it's a bad tank but DPM isn't the end all.

I prefer K-91 to Obj430U because people don't know how to fight it as much. Leopard 1 is a speedy all-rounder, can take on lights with ease. E50M would be my fav. if it got the buffs it deserves (avoid it for now). WZ-120 is amazing and 121 keeps up pretty well, real fun medium with bouncy armor. TVP is the only auto-loading medium, recent nerfs get it easily outplayed though. The Chieftain plays like a sturdy medium. Of course the current meta is the M48 Patton w/ it's recent buffs, it can take on anything, and the Pershing was buffed too so the grind is easier.
