I'd say my favorite Russian tank is the IS-2, with the T34/85 coming in second, my favorite German tank is the Panther with the Tiger coming in second.

My favorite all around is IS-2 though.

well the strongest tanks IS2s and Tigers, it always makes me sad to see some guy called ~~~~~~ driving them into mine fields or use them like a ramming battery.
oh and T60. Nothing beats armored tractors.

IS2 is the ultimate sniping-camping-noobtank of choice.

Sure, it is a good tank, but it does not do the hard work like the PV and T34's do.

I prefer a T34 over IS2 anyday.

T34 has awesome speed, reload time and good armor to own any panther or tiger.
The clue is that you need to use the speed of the T34, but most ppl always tend to camp on almost any maps with tanks. Hence the relative impopularity of the T34 and PV and the immense popularity of the IS2 and Tiger.

Second ppl dont seem to know that you should not engage angled tanks with AP and camp, but use HE and do pop-shots with your tank. Or outflank them with speed ofcourse, but this is not always possible on the combined maps where infantry has fausts.

The speed of tanks in this game have always been underestimated and camping overestimated, just have a look at the axis spawnridge in Ogledow (mostly littered with burned axis tanks) to understand that.

Im not worthy of the IS2.
So instead i use the T34, Panther and panzer 4. I wish i was worthy of the IS2 though.

here to kill your monster
panzer III ausf L and then KV-1S... i presume we are choosing from the RO tanks, right?
I like all tanks really but moreso the underrated ones, so in particular the P3 that is far more dangerous than many ppl seem to think.
