A bit of a myth about the T54. The patton makes a better scout due to view range, and it has a better gun and can abuse the crest of a hill better. The E-50 also hase a superior gun to the T54 and is a very fast King Tiger on steroids. Have a look at its gun and compare it to the T54. The T54 is very agile and it seems to have a role in company batles and clan wars. Inrandom battles the other mediums are better. Someone collected the stats on the WoT forums and the patton has the highest, followed by the E50 and no Russian medium broke the 50% mark. The following month they collected the data from the best 500 or so players which brought all the win ratios up overall with the Russian stuff still the lowest. The Americans dont really have a bad medium after the Lee and probably have the best tier 7,8,9, mediums. The Germans have the best mediums at tier 5 and 6 with the PzIV,and VK3601 and 3001H while the M4 Sherman and easy 8 don't suck. The Panther, PantherII and E50 have a different role than the USA mediums but they are quite nasty. T34/85 gets a free ride it seems due to its big gun but it has no armor and stats similar to the hated VK3001P.
