So according to Overlord:

Quote

- Added premium tanks (box and pre-order): PzII J (German tier 3 light tank), BT-SV (Soviet tier 3 light tank), M6A2E1 (American tier 8 heavy tank).
These vehicles won’t be available in Store, and can be obtained in box version and/or pre-order packages.

Looks interesting. Like a shorter, stubbier PzII.

The gun seems pretty bad though, probably a 20mm autocannon.

PzKpfw II Ausf. J: Up armored version of the PzKpfw II, increasing the front armor from 30mm to 80mm and the side/rear armor from 30mm/15mm to 50mm (wow!). Uses the 2cm KwK 38 L/55 gun (that's the second PzKpfw II gun) and the Maybach HL 45P (150 HP). It has a top speed of 31 kph (slower than PzKpfw II) and has a weight of 18 tons (thats double from the PzKpfw II. With the 150hp engine, it has slower acceleration than a Maus).

Whoa, for a tier 3, that armor is pretty rad.

Seems like a Hotchkiss equivalent for tier 3, except unlike Hotchkiss it will get shredded by combined hordes of KVs and Marder IIs. It would be pretty fearsome in max tier 3 fight though (especially because the tier 3 TDs aren't premitted into those).

There's a thread about that in the Russian light tanks forum.

It looks like a Vk3601 that was washed at too high a temperature.  :P

Looks good but that cannon is a little bit small :S if it gets to tier 1-2 than it can't be killed but if it gets in higher tiers it is simply useless
