So, we're almost at the end of the year and as usual we expect WG to provide a free limited edition premium tank for their loyal customers. Last year we got the Tetrarch LL but what will we get this year?


From what I have found it's the T1E6 (Tier 2 light tank)

Think of it as what would happen if the T1 cunningham and the easy 8 had a baby.

Stats:
160 hp
16/6/6 mm hull armor
42 deg/sec hull traverse
9 tons weight
244 hp engine
48 kph top speed

Gun: 37 mm semiautomatic 1924A1
30 dmg
33 mm regular pen
53 mm gold pen
5 round autoloader
5 sec reload between clips
80 shell capacity
0.51 accuracy
1.9 sec aim time

Turret
12/6/6 mm armor
38 deg/sec traverse
260 meter view range
-10 to 15 deg gun depression and elevation (an upside down D.max)
325 meter radio range

The accuracy on the move is slightly better than a T1 heavy (0.28 on T1E6, 0.26 for the T1 heavy. lower is better)

3 crew:
Commander/Gunner/Radioman
Driver
Loader

Got a picture of the unskinned 3d model

Info taken from from www.gamemodels3d.com

EDIT: What's with the neg rep? I'm simply providing info that people have been asking for

Yep, i'm sure that's it.

Every new year they give a tier 2 tank
First time it was  the LL  Stuart
Second time it was Tetrarch
Now it's this one.

Because that post is on the 2nd page and people keep posting "does anyone know what it is" in it so I decided to make a new thread with the info 1st.



P.S. Kazomir, I'll steal your image for the thread

You should see the NA forum, they removed the negrep feature because of trolls and no, it didn't get better.

I want the tetrarch again :-/ I was so stupid and sold it... and I don't think that this USA-thingy can make it up.

Try to send support a ticket with the plea/request to restore your Tetrarch (they willsubstract the amount of credits you got for it when you sold it and you will need a spare garage slot).
Chances are good these day - got my M3 Stuart LL back this way.
This is just for some unique Premium Tanks (which the tetrarch should be) and a one time chance.

Good luck,

Martin

I suppose he meant the beta times. Various premium tanks could be acquired back then using invite codes and such (M3 and Valentine for sure) and some were left on people's accounts when the game was released.

i've had my account for over 2 years and trust me, no christmas tank was offered in the beta. the lend lease stuarts was either a sign up gift by using a certain website or by completing the more recent tutorial. The only tanks they allowed you to keep before the beta hardwipe was the M4 (beta) tank and the pre-order tanks

Back in the days, the menu was different (repair button was next to the sell button) and you would get NO warning if you pressed sell by mistake.
Tanks sold by accident (special premium tanks, like pre-order exclusives and alpha tester tanks, not regular premium tanks that you can buy in-game) before this system was changed apply. (not sure about the date)

I consider the restoration of my M6A2E1 as my x-mass gift, anything else is bonus.




P.S. what I still don't understand is why we are not able to sell a premium and later buy it back for the full amount in credits
Example: A premium sold for 1.5 million, would cost 3 million to buy back
I bet more people will buy premiums with this system in place...

Frankly, I think this whole "I sold my tier VIII premium by mistake" thing is big, fat BS. People were selling their tanks in rage after some badly lost battle and now they see how stupid it was and want them back. Especially that pre-order tanks turned out to be a sort of white crows that cannot be acquired anymore.

Anyway, why sell your premium tanks at all? For some measly credits or single garage slot?

Right now, I stopped selling even regular tanks, because this is a waste of your time spent on getting them. You get only 50% back, the rest goes down the drain.
The more tanks you have, the more specials you can take advantage of. More variety brings more fun. I wish I didn't sell my KV-1S ages ago - now I would have fun bashing everything...
