5 Underrated Premium Tanks in World of Tanks

If you can get your hands on them, these tanks are surprisingly enjoyable!

All World of Tanks players are looking for the next Premium tank that is going to “wow” them, whether it’s an overpowered tank or a Premium tank that’s good at earning credits. Sometimes Premium tanks might not hit these highs, but they’re still worth using if you’re looking for something different.

While not all of these tanks are currently available, they’re nevertheless some of the best hidden gems in World of Tanks, even if they're Premium tanks you probably never looked at twice. Remember to let me know what underrated Premium tanks didn’t make the list that you think should have been here!

Panther mit 8,8 cm L/71

The Panther 8,8 has poor camouflage ratings but makes up for it with its high RoF and gun dispersion.

Starting off our list of underrated Premium tanks is the German Tier 8 Medium tank, the Panther mit 8,8 cm L/71. Commonly referred to as the Panther 88, this Medium tank is comparable to the Panther II (a similarly tiered German Medium).

The Panther 88 does have poorer hull protection than its standard counterpart, but it makes up for this disadvantage by offering the same engine with better terrain resistance. This allows the Panther 88 to be slightly more mobile, making it easier to quickly get in and out of combat.

While it does have a fragile ammo rack and poor camouflage, its main armament offers a high rate of fire, good dispersion (0.32), and average gun depression. The Panther 88 also uses a five crew setup, making it a good choice when training up crew members. If nothing else, the Panther mit 8,8 is one of the cheapest Tier 8s on the market.
