7 Best Medium Tanks in World of Tanks

Beware the wolfpack - they bite.

Tier 7 – Panther/M10

If you’d told me a year ago that today I’d be placing the Panther/M10 as the best Tier 7 Medium Tank in the game, I’d first of all be confused as to who you are and what you’re doing in my house, then consider asking you for future lottery numbers, then forget about that because you’d evidently be completely mad, before asking you to get out of my house again.

The point is, the Panther/M10 used to be so bad it became a meme, a really bad one that nobody found funny. Then, half a year ago in Update 9.17.1, it received a huge buff fixing pretty much everything that was bad about the tank – great news for me who was stupid enough to buy one before that.

The significant buffs to its mobility, reload speed, and dispersion values transformed the worst Tier 7 Medium Tank in the game into something pretty mobile, with excellent DPM, gun handling and accuracy, and surprisingly good turret armor with enough hull armor to challenge some equal-tier Mediums. To top it all off, it retained its Premium Matchmaking, meaning on top of having some of the best statistics of all Tier 7 Medium Tanks, it will never see a Tier 9 in its life.
