(on the AT-15a, at 0:27) "It packs a 650 hp engine that weights 65 tonnes" That's one BIG engine. I wonder how heavy the vehicle itself would be if it needs a 65 tonne engine to get it moving.

Nice video. Is it just me or does the TOG II look like a big, juicy XP pinata? 14kph max, poor armor, low-alpha gun and HUUUUUGE hull. And 1400 hp you can get XP for shooting off it :)

Arty will love shooting this tank, and so will derp-happy tier 5 and 6 tanks with gold ammo. I really fail to see the appeal.

He said "It packs a 650 hp engine and weights 65 tonnes".

Nope. DirtyDutchman quoted the video correctly.

I was pretty suprised to see the length of the TOG II in comparison with the other tier 6 heavies, that's one damn long tank!

The FCM 50T looks like a very enjoyable tank :).

However anything that looks enjoyable or good on paper could be altered in the future due to balancing issues.

I am never keen on purchasing things in world of tanks these days as i always tend to think whatever i buy especially premium vehicles may be changed in the future.

Its not that i wont its the fact that i am not very keen and rather put off due to the altering and balancing issues they could cause in the future.

I wonder when Chinese tanks were Will, for the game World of Tanks.

Type-99

Type-99 is the latest of Plas tanks. After the first Iraq war, China, the celebration of the older types of armor Soviet standards did not have a chance against the modern Western troops. Work came quickly started to produce the new modern tank that would meet the new requirements. Several prototypes were built, among other things, T-2000 and the Type-98, but after consistently analyzes so determined that the Type-99 would become Plas future main battle tank. The price and high technology have meant that only a small number of T-99 has produserats and these have mainly been placed around the capital Beijing. Today there are about 200 Type-99 tanks in service with the PLA.

spot on. wg has proven history of "balancing" tanks just before they release new batch. take a minute to appreciate how much some of those tank cost, more than most whole games out there. and what does it give you in return? few extra credits in game.
very bad return for your money if you ask me. they should earn double what they earn now, or have minimum earned per game that is not damage related

"The At-15A can only be damaged in its weak spots by lower tier tanks."

Which would be? Why is this important fact missing in the video? Are you afraid no one is going to buy this "fortress" once its weakspots are out? like the KV-5 for instance...

The French Prem looks nice, but 50€ is a price I consider too much for a PremTank. I am alright with the 30€ for the Type or KV-5, but 50?? nah. Besides that I think it could be fun to play a mobile PremTank. Thats the main reason I bought the Type, its the only Hightier PremTank that came with decent mobility. SuperPersh, KV-5, IS-6, Tog II or AT-15A all too meager. Even lower tier Prems like the Valentine, Matilda or Churchill suffer from slow speed. I own a Valentine and I like to play it, its a challenge, but I accept it. But again its slow speed makes me play it rather seldom. I´d appreciate if WG would come out with a more agile Premium for a decent price.

good video. the tog doesn't seem like a good tank. It could be very hard to play it. The french one looks ok.

how about using your eyes? Can't you see the hatches and stuff on it? Don't you know that weakspots are (almost) always hatches and viewport and lower plates?

i'm not happy with my T71, it's an horrible tank , that can be a bad tier IV ligth tanks, not better.
i'm very disappointed about this tank , it's very expensive (1,4 M credits) but it have no gun , and horrible armor. it's unplayable!

the lowe when first relsed did in fact do that.

with a prem accoutn of the time it  infact made you 4X as much.

prem accoutns at the time gave you 2X silver income.

that was wh ythe tan kwas so very very expencive. at 15 or 18 K gold. or abotu £36 in cash at the time.

then they redused the prem accoutn silver income and when the t-59 came out the redused its silver income.

so the lowe i brought less than a month after its was relsiced is now 1/3 or less as useful or even good as it was.

the same or simuler thing happoned to the t-59.

the only stable tanks are the teir 5 or lower tanks due to how unpopuler they are.

so basiclyi dotn raconmend any prem tank over tier5 much.

though the lowe is still one of my favort tanks i nthe game... it's just no wher near even worth what i paid for it.

it's been so badly nerfed to helll.. it well still fundmetaly the same tank jsut not godo at what it was ment to do.

makign you abotu 100K silver pre game. with prem accoutns.
