T23 wont make you money since you'll be spamming APCR into tanks just to actually pen tanks your own tier consistently for that DPM. Weak armor but gets 1300hp I believe.
I've only played 6 battles in my T23 so far and have a perfect win rate going and it does make alot of Silver...
Hit points are 1,440 not 1,300. As for the gun, if you're using premium rounds then you need to go back to the low tiers and learn how to aim. The T23 has the 76mm M1A1 (though its called the 76mm T23 in game) which is the top gun on the Jumbo and the first upgrade on the T20 however, the T23 has a higher rate of fire then either of them.
The T23 is not a heavy tank brawler it is a medium tank flanker. Get around the flank and you won't have any trouble penetrating with standard AP rounds, any one that "has" to use premium rounds simply isn't using the tank correctly, much like some one of drives an SPG like an assualt gun... With the accuracy and high rof, the T23 can be used as a sniper but it really shines in a flanker or second line fire support role.

I plan on putting $50 into the game before these special packs run out:
I have heard both positive and negative thoughts on the T23, it seems enjoyable but is it a good money maker?
The Sherman Beta Test Premium Tank is a novelty, and I have never owned one in the PC version, is this a cheaper solution than buying a T23?
I plan on buying the Panzer 3/4, I have not obtained this tank in the PC version.
The T-25 I have obtained in the PC version.
I am mostly confused on which tank seems the best for making credits and having a fun time. I have heard that the T23 is a hated and loved tank, based on its gun and armor it receives negative rep. The beta test sherman and Panzer 3/4 are rare premium tanks that many pc players adore and beg the PC moderators to put into give shops, are these tanks enjoyable? I just want to know which tank I will be getting bigger bang for my buck. I plan on buying two packs.
To really get the best bang for your buck... get both Founders packs and you get a free Russian Tier III T-127 with 100% crew and garage slot. Its a fun little tank and pretty good for it's tier. If you buy both of the Starter packs you get a free American Tier II T2 Light, which I haven't gotten around to playing yet so I won't comment on it.
The T23, see above, I would recommend.
The Pz V/IV is also a good tank worth getting, though it should be pointed out that it is not an unstoppable juggernaut as some have been claiming on the forum.
The M4A2E4 is not a bad Sherman variant, just don't be fooled by it's looks it is not a Jumbo but rather the half way point between a stock M4 and the Jumbo. If you play it like a M4 you'll do great, play it like a Jumbo and you'll be a burning wreck in a hurry.
The T25 is not a bad tank, looks aside... It does the job and is often under estimated on the battle field, to funny/painful results.
