My thoughts are in the video. What you think about that "field artillery"? :)

Enjoyed the video, and having tried it on the Test server I like the M56 - but not as much as I liked seeing that example of team play in your last battle!

I've played it on the test server as well, and I absolutely enjoy playing it.  No armor - no problem. It has speed and maneuverability, good camo rating, good gun depression and great gun traverse values.

I did a review and included some gameplay footage on the new D-Day inspired Overlord map on my channel:

I've also played it on the test server.

 

Definitly one of the best, if not THE best sniper for its tier. It has very good precision, aimtime, gundepression and penetration. And its very small, so 

 

Alphadamage and DPM are only "ok" though.

 

The downsides are, that its only fast if you drive straight ahead. It turns "ok", but the guntraverse is *really* slow and the backwards speed is also bad. 

If a light tank catches you, its game over x10. 

 

All in all a really interestening TD.

Has it been delayed again? I see no mention of it in the articles about the patch.

Any ideas on how one acquires this treasure?

 

I see nothing about it anywhere...

It will be a reward tank (according to Rita's blog). Which means you will not be able to buy it. Probably win in some tournament, clan wars or something.

Great.   Now any bloody chance of a normal purchasable premium TD like the other nations?

Don't be silly. It isn't as if the Americans have 2 TD lines...erm...

 

Well, at least the Germans and Russians don't have multiple prem TDs...

 

erm

 

yeah, no ideal.

I was watching the Chieftains WOT stream last night. Apparently the reason it isn't available for general sale is that it's a serious Marmite tank. They didn't want people buying it to find out it isn't their play style. 

 

I can kind of get this to prevent loads of credit card charge backs and refunds. But Meh I was wanting to buy it!

Any news on when and how the M56 will be available? Love glass cannons and want a trainer for US TD crews.

They pulled it out of release because they probably wanted a cash grab on it at some point. use it as bait for an event.

Was tempted

Shame it comes with lots of extras to push up the price.

One reasonable but situational premium TD + premium time you might not want + gold you might not want = massively over priced cash grab trying to milk the EU players even more than usual. Thanks WGEU but no thanks.
