After all the VK 2801 nervs and the introduction of the fun to play but not really scouty Aufklärungs Panther, I was wondering if there is any hope for players, who like to play scouts, to see one in the German tree again.

Lately the only tank that I can play like a real scout is the Pz.38 n.A. which is fun at Tier 3 - 7 but not so much at tier 8, 9 and 10, due to its low view range and the fact, that the gun cant penetrate high tier Artillery.

France got 3 good Scouts and I'm not even counting meds here. USA got 2, China now also has a bunch. When is the RU-251 coming? Are the brits Getting any scouts too?

what about the luchs? Ok, only Tier 4, but good viewrange and amazing mobility. And adittionally the best gun you can have on a T4 scout ;)

As far as I know, we should not expect RU251 this year. I heard they had some problems with getting it's specifications from a museum or something.

Leaves me more time to grind the 100k or so xp needed with the AFK Panther...  :amazed:

They are currently working on 2 different higher tier German scouts.  The 28.01, however, is still a great Scout.  It can't carry a team like it used to be able to, but it still can influence every battle it is in - and now it makes money, too! (I've made over 30 million in it since 8.7 released.)

Two? One is RU 251, and the other one is...?

Can't wait to finally get a decent high tier German scout. The RU-251 should be a lot of fun if it does have a 79 kmph speed limit and a decent engine. Currently only the tier 2, 3 and 4 German light tanks are fun.

Really wish the VK 28.01 H wouldn't get nerfed all the time and am kind of hesitant on getting it from the Leopard. Is it worth it?

I am sure the 79 km/h speed limit will be its top speed going down a big hill, not it flat land top speed.

Well I at least hope it can reach at least 60 km/h on flat land. From what I've read on it, it weights around 24 tons with a 500 hp engine. That seems to be decent hp to ton ratio.
Regardless I do hope they add it soon.

I made a suggestion for a new T8 light tank, the Begleitpanzer 57 (a German post-war prototype):
