I realize I can go to Tank Discussion and look up the stats, but sometimes stats don't give you the true information you need. Let's say you buy a Premium TD that has a 165% silver earner. This should make you a nice amount of silver per match, but what if that tank sucks and you can't perform well in it. I want to know from those who play with Premium tanks which one's make you the most silver. If the Lowe Black Edition ever goes on sell again I'll be buying that, but sadly it's not for sale. Which other tanks are great for earning silver? I have the AMX CDC and it's been my go to tank for making silver, but it's only a 150% silver earner. I know there's gotta be something better available.

Löwe, T34, Captured King Tiger, Patriot, Bizon T-103, 50TP Proto, Jagtiger 8.8, Atomic Centurion. Also some tier 7 tanks are great: Banshee Comet, Slayer, Type 62, Hammer. Both Löwe and T34 have great pen so they don't need to shoot premium that often, they make great silver, same story with Patriot and Bizon. Captured King Tiger is often overlooked tank but it has accurate gun, insane DPM, great silver bonus and cheap ammo, it makes insane amounts of silver. 50TP Proto has big alpha, relatively cheap ammo (670 silver per shot if I remember correctly) and quite poor premium rounds so you don't waste your silver by shootin too many premium rounds like in some tanks (Chrysler K, KV-5, 112 etc.). Jagtiger 8.8 can also make great silver but it's not a vehicle for everybody. Atomic Centurion has good pen and great silver bonus, good tank. These were just some highlights from my premium tank collection (118 tanks and more to come...) :)

Whenever I'm in need of silver, my go-to tanks are the Löwe, King Tiger, or Captured King Tiger.  All of them have silver multipliers of 60% or higher.  The Löwe is pretty good, but personally I tend to do better in the King Tigers.

My Favorites are the M6A2E1, Scorpion G and the AMX M4 mle. 49. Good Silber earner with 80-120k silver each battle. With boost 190-240k silver. The M62E1 ja easy to play, has a special MM and a usefull front armor again Tanks until Tier 7/8.

The Rheinmetall Scorpion G... even if its hard to play... @least i'm just mediocre on it, it produces high silver boosts, because there are only few needs for prem-rounds in it... even in T10 matches.

T26E4 SuperPershing / T26E4 Freedom. Silber margin (without silver boosts) goes from ~70k to ~90k in lost or bad battles over ~140k in average battles up to 200k in good battles.

I prefer to play my Banshee, Bizon T103, Skorpian G, and T32 Proto. I play awful with the skorpian a lot but that thing can print solver when you do get it running right

Yeah, I've been eyeballing the King Tigers as well. In fact I think the King Tiger is available now for purchase. I might just get that one although the Captured King Tiger would be more desired. I bought the Object 252U Defender last night, but so far I'm not earning as much silver as my AMX CDC. The accuracy on the Defender is a negative with this tank. I should have bought the King Tiger instead.

 

UPDATE: I'm really loving both the King Tiger and the Defender. They're both fun to play. The Defender has nice alpha damage, but aim carefully. It's definitely made for close range fighting, especially when you're top tier. The King Tiger is a tough tank too with much better aim than the Defender. It doesn't do as much alpha damage, but it has good armor to keep you in the fight. I'm happy I bought both these tanks.

I haven't played the Lowe as much. She and I haven't gelled yet. My main impression with this tank is that it is slow. I've been having too much fun with my King Tiger and Defender so I haven't messed with the Lowe too much.

Look for tanks with good multipliers and cheap ammo. 90mm shells are universally cheap for the main nations. 105s cost more. That doesn't hurt tanks like the Lowe and T34 as they have good pen and use very little premium rounds. Tanks like the Patriot, Cap King Tiger and many mediums like the Motherland are good for this because of cheap shells. All versions of tier 8 premium Centurions have more expensive ammo costs for their size though, you can still get good earnings from them, but not quite what you might think. 

I hope it helps.  :)

I bought both the Lowe and the King Tiger for my silver earners and I'm very happy with my King Tiger. After 53 battles I'm at 71% win rate and around 80 kills. My survival rate is around 52%. For me these are amazing stats. I had a game today where I made $147,000 in silver! I might have completed an OP that gave me a little boost to earn that much silver (I'm not sure), but I do consistently earn around $80,000 to $100,000 with this tank.

 

The Lowe has been a different story for me. The tank just doesn't fit my play style I guess. I haven't played it enough to give it a fair assessment, but I can say I find the tank rather boring to play and my results have been poor.  I've had only a few games where I made around $90,000 in silver, but I've had plenty more that fall below $50,000 which is not conducive. I've only had 22 battles in it so I can't give it a just assessment yet.

I'm glad the Tiger is working.out for you. The Lowe is different, but it is worth sticking with. Try youtube console vids to get tips, and don't forget it was buffed a while back. I haven't played my Lowe much, but it was the tank I got the Show Me The Money xbox achievement for earning more than 100k silver before ops. I've done it more in the Lowe than any other tank. 

 

Keep persisting with it and it will pay off eventually. Good luck!  :)

I‘d prefer the Iron Rain over the Rheinmetall Skorpion. If you manage to unload just one full magazine into an enemy tank, you‘ll already have earned about 60k of silver, depending on what you hit. The Scorpion can relocate faster, but the Iron Rain‘s low profile and stealth can come in handy, too.

Also voting for the Super Pershing. Relatively cheap to buy, been on sale (either regular or flag variant) a few times. Competitive with recent PC buff, cheap to run/repair, and has PMM. Prints money. Downside, both turret turret speed and hull speed are awful. DPM could be better. Can be a bit boring to play (too slow to adjust, just pick a direction and push)
