A Guide to the World of Tanks’ Best Tank – Which Tanks Rise to the Top?

In a shocking revelation, it turns out there are an awful lot of tanks in World of Tanks. Truly surprising stuff. With such a huge wealth of choice in front of you, how can you be expected to make a choice? If only there was a way to find out which one is World of Tanks’ best tank. If only there was some kind of list, or guide, or article to tell you and help you out…

Object 430U

The Object 430U is a slight variation on the normal 430U in that it has a rear placement of the engine-transmission compartment. In real terms, this meant there was more space inside and also helped to reduce the weight slightly. In the game, this is a heavy medium tank. It has better mobility than a heavy, and better armour than a medium, making it fantastic for leading a charge into enemy territory, or for taking out anything smaller. This is probably the best contender for the title of World of Tanks’ best tank thanks to its brilliant mix of stats and versatility.

Wz-111 Model 5A

This one is a prototype heavy tank developed in the early 1960s. It was based on designs of Soviet tanks and has superior frontal armour compared to its brothers. This is also the very first Chinese exclusive tank which was then added to the live servers as an alternate choice. It offers very reliable protection and good gun handling but has a lowered HP. It also has bad angling and imperfect accuracy, but with practice you can overcome this.

Object 268 Version 4

This tank was part of a project that allowed for a gun to be mounted in a stationary cabin to the rear of the hull. It was cancelled in the end but was ambitious nonetheless. It has an incredible combination of both armour and speed. It is brilliant for charging headfirst into enemies and taking them out with its excellent firepower. It does, however, have poor accuracy and a low rate of fire, so you’ll want to stick with friends. Not quite World of Tanks’ best tank, but pretty close.

Object 277

The Object 277 is another heavy tank capable of decent damage and with good armour. It was developed back in 1956 under the supervision of Joseph Kotin. It has excellent top speed and is one of the fastest heavy tanks in the game. It does good damage and has pretty good gun handling too. However, it struggles with uneven terrain and has a weak lower plate.   

Super Conqueror

The final tank in the fight for the title of World of Tanks’ best tank is the Super Conqueror. This was manufactured during the early 50s and was used a lot in testing. It has thick armour all around and has better side armour than much of its competition. It is fairly quick when aiming, too, and has a good rate of fire. The downsides are that it has poor gun elevation and is very slow.
