Yes, looking forward to the Japanese lines too.

One concern that just occurred to me, and this is not meant to be in any way disrespectful/stereotypical to the Japanese, however, all the names are very similar, and at first glance the look (and outline) of many tanks is also similar - I can see the possibility of being caught out in game mistaking a tier VI (Che-To) for a tier IV (Chi-He) etc...- and perhaps paying the price?

I wonder if the good 90 is a 800 cred per round gun  :unsure: .

No.
8.10 is a perfectly valid and logical version number.

Esp since we are no doing math but simply a filing system.

The new tier 1 actually looks pretty good to me.

Dat tumor on the Type 61 , looks like it'd have good depression then they toss that big weakspot on it  :dry:

They look pretty cool though !

Let's see...
meds, starting from t2:
T2 - autocannon pen on a regular gun? Food for T18.
T3 - it's almost exactly the same as Chinese Chi-ha, only branded medium, but loses 9 pen on APCR (122 instead of 131) - dunno why.  It may be actually inferior to chinese chi-ha regarding camuflage values (lights have good camo on the move), too.
T4 - Chi-ha gun, or underpenned cannon... Might be decent vs. same tier only, will struggle against KV-1
T5 - Pretty close to the prem one, bad DPM, average mobility, Bad tenk IMHO.
T6 - Cromwell's gun (going by dam, dpm, etc) on a platform that has 40% less hp/ton than cromwell has, and equally bad armor? No thanks
T7 - Gets autoloader on the same cromwell gun, but is really really sluggish for a med, and underpenned unless firing gold. It will struggle vs. tenks 1-2 tiers higher frontally, and seems too slow (judging by hp/t and max speed) to flank properly. No armor. Sucks IMHO.
T8 - Has a bit higher DPM than Pershing, and similar power/weight, but the turret is paper-thin unlike M26's troll mantle, and it has less view range. I wouldn't be surprised if it had less depression. Poor gold shell (HEAT) compared to pershing's APCR. Very good pen on AP, tho.
T9 - No armor, average hp/weight, good gun, but let's be honest, T-54 slinging gold is more agile, has troll armor and the gun is pretty much the same regarding DPM (lower alpha tho). I'd rather get T-54. Might be good if you dislike premium ammo.
T10 - Not my cup of tea, no opinion so far, except that the gun seems really nice. Depending on ground resistance it may be as agile as T-62A, but it has a meh turret. decent hp/t of 20. 410m view range. Might be good.

Am I the only one who finds tier 1-7 japanese tanks boring..?

But hey, they have the saving grace of being ugly.

I find them (at least on paper) inferior to good tenks of each tier. The meds all have hp/t that doesn't exceed 16, and tier 6-7 ones have particularly poor one (12 hp/t, slightly above 40 km/h top speed) while having a typical pew-pew gun like cromwell has.

GJ for posting.

The only tank which seems decent for it's tier is Type 1 Chi-He. Too bad for the T7+ tanks, they have nice enough guns but absolutely no armor, far worse than french, KV-2 and arty will love them.
