Hello

What tanks do you see on very rare ocasions in the game? I intended to start a pool but because we have too many  tanks now i find it very hard to start the pool
I will limit my own experience to tier 5-8 because most  us play there anyway these days (but feel free to name from tier 1-10)

I will say
VK DB the tier 7 german medium - this one is rather very rare
ARL V39 and to a some degree ARL 44
T150 tier 6 russian and also at tier 6 KV2(if we compare to how often we see KV1S :) )
VK3001H
KV4 (not exactly rare but compared to IS3 it is)
SU101

These are some that i did remark

Maybe some of these tanks need some upgrades so many will start to use them . It is not that ok to see a legion of KV1 , KV1S ans VK3601 (yes i have them too)

Regards

Then the old premium tanks like the M6.

KV-220 beta (correct me if im wrong)

its only 5 i think on this server. as it really was a russian server tank, but some moved their accounts to EU.

seeing that one is like winning the lottery (but i have seen one though)

The entire second Russian TD line.

KV-13 is still also pretty rare even after the buff and I'd say it's one of the best tier 7 mediums there is.

so duplicates start to pop up :) like su101

the church GC i will not include. it is a new brench in the tree so maybe this is the reason.
Kv220 in 8000 fights is did see none :) but i know the tanks

since i drive almost exclusivly german tanks i can only give a statement on them - because some tanks are rare but for a reason  :)

to your list above: the vk db is not underrated but in my opinion not really worth much - it can be fun but there are better ones in my opinion.
the vk 3001 H is a little underrated because he can be a good supporter or even scout. but again IMO he will never be outstanding in a role.

underrated at the moment (german tech tree) for me are:
- pz 2g: can be a real bugger for the enemy team if you know how to support your team and take the long reload time into your calculations. specially good at finishing even hier tier tanks fast

- the "new" luchs: still a fantastic vehicle IMO even in Tier 4. great agility and a decent gun for tier 4 scouts make him a nightmare for enemy arties :D

- Pz IIIa: true it has no armour and its gun is not very accurate. but jesus this thing is fast!!!! and a real good scout in tier 3 since the luchs has gone one tier up

- Dicker Max: many people dont like this premium vehicle. but it has a devastating gun and hides well - you just shouldnt be in the front line :D

- PZ 4 Schmalturm: same for this prem... excellent gun but very cumbersome...one of the best snipers on tier 6 in my opinion

B1, you will see it every 3-4 games if you play with tier 4

Hmm, I drive my DB when ever I play.. And did so with the ARL v39, but luckily I got finally rid of it.. Horrid machine! o_O
I actually prefer the DB over the Panther.. Or over any other tier7 mediums... I don't think I have a single victory with T43..

Truly rare tanks are those that were gifted to alpha/beta testers, but if you rule those out then hmm...
I must say, that I can't think of any.. :D

Mostly, as mentioned already, the 2nd Russian TD line. I wanted to go for it sooner or later, but it doesn't seem to be favoured?
The M36 Jackson and T25 AT also became very rare to me.

From the stand point of a 'Master Tanker' badge hunter, let me tell you about the few ellusive tanks:

- Obj263 : few players prefer Obj263 vs. Obj268
- Churchill GC : AT line is probably more fun to play

The premium version of the Type-62.
I suppose it's because they've been out of store for a while.
