No. There will be a lighter T-54 with less armor and more speedz on tier 8 as a premium tank.

They are going to introduce a t54 light version as a t8 premium if i remember correctly. Current t54 will stay in its op state for a long time...

Not the best, IMO, but yeah... the model is aesthetically pleasing.

But to be serious, this sounds intriguing. A tier 8 premium, that I can put my seasoned T-44 crew in, that is faster even than the T-54 and earning credits like the Type-59? Shut up and take my money!

The actual production version of the T-54 in other words(unlike the freak t-54 we have in game now).

I hope its balanced for its tier as i would buy it if it is. I dont care about extra credits and xp from the tank, just want a tank that is balanced that i dont have to grind to get. I already have the T-54, Object 140 and T-62A and the Object 140 is the main tank i play as it feels more nimble than the T-62A.

Never heard about this until now. A source would be greatly appreciated! I wonder if WG has learned lessons after the Type 59 malarkey a while back. Based upon that, it looks like we will get a very watered down T-54 variant, and in my opinion, nothing to get too excited about. If speed is it's only good point then everything else about the tank will be mediocre at best.

The biggest flaw of the Type 59 in my opinion is it's aim time - it's an excellent soft stat to nerf on the premium T54, and don't forget that it will have less depression than the Type's (unhistorical) -7 degrees. 

 

It's not impossible that the Premium T54 will be closer to the T-34-3 than the Type in terms of its flaws. Which would make it less than an ERMAGERD-ROFLSTOMP machine.

 

Perhaps the only problem will be other tanks struggling to pen its (likely) troll armour, even if it's considerably less than the T54. I remember the days of the Pershing having no hope of frontally penning an aggressive Type 59. But with the advent of penetration creep at tier 8 (Centurion, STA-1 and IndienPanzer), it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Nope, totally seperate tank. T-54 'Light' is kind of like the Type 62, which is a downsized and de-armoured version of Type 59. Except, you know, the T-54 'Light' is the same size.

looking at the above articles it sounds very much like a t44 with similar hull armour(weak), a much better/stronger turret than the t44 and type 59 like acceleration (slowish for a medium).

 

In fact it sounds a lot like a type 59 with a weaker hull. I wouldn't expect it to have pref mm with these stats, I personally would rather drive the above than a t44, although that never stopped them giving the type pref mm.

I really don't get why they couldn't add more fantasy stats to the LTTB if they wanted a tier 8 light tank so badly. This will sorely disappoint the playerbase globally and also deprive WG of a potentially /very/ lucrative cash-cow. There was no way that a premium version of T-54 was not going to bring piles upon piles of money.
