Hmm...

I would say that the Crusader is the best allied trainer. Its armour is low enought so that noobs don't learn to do stupid shit. Plus its gun is weak enough so that they learn the importance of outflanking their targets.

The best Axis tank I would say is the Panzer IVF-2. But only until the Panzer III 37mm models are released.

I haven't read the other replies to this, but I would NOT say the Tiger is in anyway a beginners tank.

The Tiger's sighting optics are the most difficult to master in the Axis arsenal. Forget armor values, we're talking sheer aiming ability. People like to claim that Tiger whores are noobs, but that's just the excuse they come up with for somebody knowing what they're doing in that tank. For the Axis I'd say the Panzer IV-H is the best beginners tank. Maybe the Panzer IV-F2 or King Tiger for ease of use of the sight and trajectory of the round. For the Allies, I'd say the Sherman Jumbo, but in all honesty, I'd also have to suggest your regular Sherman just to get used to the more common lower arcing shells of the common Sherman varient. You master the run of the mill Sherman and you can move into any other Allied tank.

Beginner's tank?

You shouldnt even be playing Forgotten Hope online untill you've familiarized yourself with all the tanks offline. There is no beginner's tank, each has a specific gun, armour value, speed, turret traverse, field of view etc. which determine their role on the battlefield. There is no beginner's tank, each has a strength and weakness. If you fuck up in one you can bet nine out of ten times you wont get a second chance.

i would suggest the medium tanks, they take a few hits. but arent nearly indestructable. forcing you to move, thereby improving your tactical skills

however, any tank= badseed satchel attack...............MuHuhahahahaha! there is no tactics that can save you from this :)

^^ what he said, offline you should practise with everything available to you. But online you should keep your hands off high-end tanks like the tiger, panther, KT, shermanjumbo and everything like that. Unless you enjoy screwing your team over by not effectively using their assets, wich can end in complete defeat and slaughter.. The tiger can take a beating, sure, but its not a noob-tank at all.. Offline, i'd say take all you can get to learn.. but online, take whatever your team can spare (stug b's and shermans, panzer2's.. :naughty: Seriously.. just dont.

Let me put it to you this way...

If I see someone who is clearly a noob in a powerful weapon like a Panther or KT, that is the point where I grab a Panzerfaust, hop over the engine, and let someone better get it.

New players should never get the following: Matildas Churchills Panthers Tigers T-34/85s M4A3E2 Jumbo Sherman Firefly Jagdpanther/Jagdpanzer

They should get tanks that are easy to kill so they learn from mistakes. Giving them a tank that is next to impossible to kill will make them do stupid shit next time they hop in a Stuart.

I agree with the Crusader I, it's fairly fast, so getting to combat is not boring and tedious. Also the 2-lbr is IMO one of the most accurate guns, allowing you to focus on tactics and positioning, rather than just marksmanship. I really like the Pz38t, for the same reasons as the Crusader I. The matchup vs. the Char and Somua really hammers home the importance of flanking. As far as practicing offline, same as flying, that's where you practice basic vehicle control and marksmanship. Not very useful for tactics and positioning, since even though the bots are decent, they are still only bots (never seen a bot split-S away from my fighter's guns):D
