50% price reduction and 70% credits earned with the KV-1S?

You can bet there will be a lot of those on the fields. Tier 4 and 5 tanks are not going to be fun to play.


7k credits for a steel wall and x2 crew experience is my favourite out of the lot though.

Funny to see how the same event can be de rated in EU compared to Russia...

I've heard people have issues with firewalls blocking them from reading the news text from the source, so here is a copy in a spoiler.

Looks like a solid special featuring good (or atleast widely favored) tanks.

Uh, the SU-76 is a tier III, not a tier IV. Did they mix up the name or the tier? Is it supposed to be the SU-85B at tier IV or  the SU-76 at tier III?

Hmm... It seems there's some sort of mistake with the soviet SU-76. It's a tier III tank destroyer but in the news text it appears as a tier IV. I'm guessing the discount and increased credits refer to the SU-85B and it was just an typing error, no?

Anyway, seems like a good special.

I wasn't expecting much as I have US tanks, but I'll take the crew XP and maybe camo my T-49.

I was really hoping to see T-150...  :Smile_sceptic:
After all, it did saw action in Leningrad... And KV-1S...hmmm...it is maybe in museum in Leningrad (today Saint Petersburg)...

Wiki about T-150 said:

A prototype fought in the battles for Leningrad, and became a basis for a modification of the KV-1 with reinforced armor.
Older information claimed that the prototype of the T-150 was the work together with the KV in Chelyabinskodoslaný in prototypes, but there are the available documents, it would be confirmed. On the contrary, there are documents that say so, that the prototype was assigned one Leningradjednotke the defensive. The prototype of T-150 was assigned to 11.10.1941 123 Tank Brigade. In it he participated in a number of the battle, and later was most likely damaged, or the next destiny is unknown.


Either way, there are too many KV-1S on battlefields already, T-150 is much more rare...

Like the KV-1S isn't overused already...

Aside from that, decent special.
