Depends upon your play style. If you want to be in the fight, get a Ferd. If you want to snipe, get the JP2.

Some guys love speed for helping a team, some guys like armor or bigger guns.
I can get to the Jagdtiger no matter which way I go, through the Ferdi or through the Jagdpanther II. I tend to play a sniping role whenever possible. Speed makes things less frustrating when I notice that the other side of the map is in trouble and want to go help out, but the front armor on the Ferdi is quite a pain in the ass when I'm stuck facing one head to head. I'm leaning towards the Ferdi, but not decided yet. Another advantage of getting the Ferdi is that it would elite my Tiger (P) in the process.

When I get some free money I can spend on the game I think I shall get one too... they look so rediculus, and can reach out and touch someone! maybe not really hard, but they have a fast enough reload to make up for it with their special match maker.

I do tend to get too aggressive sometimes, so maybe the Ferdinand's lower speed will help prevent me from doing that as much and maybe it's armor will help me out when I do start to make dumb decisions.

I think with a few more rounds and a little more goading we can get Sam to buy one too

TOGs are awesome because they drop tons of silver when you shoot them.

I've realized that the T25 can do 52ish kmph on flat level ground. I can get into trouble plenty fast.

The T25 AT? or T25/2?

I loved my AT. The speed was something to be careful with, but the gun was great, and it did its job well.

It's always been known as an offensive TD. Maybe due to its speed, or maybe due to having a slightly less accruate gun? Whichever, it's been said that it worked well with inital pushes just behind, but right with, a solid medium or heavy push. I've used it aggressively to win battles, and passively to hang back at base when I saw all flanks were made of weak tanks or players. Full camo on crew, and a camo net, always. Wish I could have afforded camo paints as well.

I picked up an M4 again for shits. I run around with the 105, it'll one-shot a surprising number of tanks if you don't try to go through the frontal armor. That rocks.

Yep!

I think I probably used the vent instead of the rammer, but the rammer makes more sense, lol. It was a keeper tank/TD ... until I really needed funds for some reason. Oh yeah, it was that tier 9 sale

I may be selling off both my Pershing and my T28 Proto tonight or tomorrow to fund a 110E5. I really like both the Pershing and Proto, but ... such is life.

Even then, I'll still have to save up for vents and a rammer for the 110E5... but the crew is 100% and on their thrid perks thanks to the T34 training they've been doing.

I have had both researched for about 2 months now. Working on my second skill set for the crew so I have not upgraded yet.
Like with everyone else has said what is your play style ? The other thing to know is that the Ferd requires 6 crew memebrs like the Jagdtiger while the Jagpanther II only have 5 crew memebers like the JagP does.

I am leaning toward the Ferd just becasue the Jagdtiger will be the same play style, so I might as well learn how to play with the fred.

You don't wanna know

I'm just over 2000 games and I've only been playing a few months. Many folks are 10k+ games.

I'm just about to unlock my first Tier 9
