Well since all of my tier 8 premiums are worthless due to improved matchmaking I'd love to pick up this one. They said they won't sell 13 57 nor m41 90 anymore (sure lol), what about type? Any idea when it may come?

While not extremely OP, it has pre-rework DPM and view range. Essentially the same "problems" as the 13 57 and M41 GF has, thus it's subject to the same "will never* go on sale".

 

After it was removed from regular sale, it has been featured in the 'Holiday calendar' and a Sep. 2014 marathon - which required you to fullfill rather harsh requirements 25 times in 37 days (IIRC it was class-specific rather than nation-specific, thus I actually bothered to do it).

 

*"Never go on sale" is Russian for "whenever we feel like it".

It will probably be put in a bundle like previous times, which isn't worth it

Well it was considered UP before rework with wz 131 outclassing it massively, so I thought they may sell it again. 

Thanks anyway.

I'm pretty sure it was on sale last Christmas/New Year for a day during the Advent Calendar event? I'd already got one at the time and hadn't played it much, and the response seemed to be lacklustre, people saying it was too expensive and not fitting for the meta. But with the new light tank match making the Type 62 is very, very competitive in any game it gets put into. Now there isn't much point in playing the WZ 131 because the Type 62 is better overall and earns more credits to boot. So keep an eye open for this years Advent Calendar.

That thing has even worse shell velocity than M41 GF or STA-2. I hope not to be in the platoon when you excitedly buy the tank, fire the gun a few times and your old man's heart stops beating. Your last words will probably be "[edited] this tank".


Edit: I can offer you a shoulder if the nitros bring you through that, but I doubt. Less than 800m/s shells flying 10m over your target at your age is no joke.

I did... then I saw the shell velocity. It's like finding a super hot girl with the perfect personality you want to be with, then finding out she's pregnant. Life really is full of disappointments.

Yes if you leave out the parts "super hot" and "perfect personality". Still kind of worth it tbh.
