They're planning a bundle with the 13-57 GF for 199 euros sometime early April.

As this, in 6 years when it has been power crept by new prem vehicles and it's gathered an almost mythical status and can be yours if you buy the "non gender specific winterval" boxes and get lucky.

Precisely. I stand by the accuracy of my post, you just need to check it whenever Defender is not for sale.

If WG has any brains left the Defender will never be sold again.

Lets see if the greed wins again from the brains shall we?

There is a large patch incoming with major revisions to the USSR tech tree.

The patch is being estimated to arrive in February 2018.

The patch includes new USSR heavy tanks.

If there ever was a time to sell Defender/Object 252U it would be at the time of that patch.

However, sale of Defender/Object 252U is likely to cause a high level of whine on EU server due to it overperforming on win rate on EU, and so possibly it will only be sold on RU?

Not any time soon if the following quotes from Tankfest 2017 that I found on Rita's blog are anything to go by:

 

While the Type 4&5 heavies will see some nerfs with the Maus, the Defender won’t be brought back for sale for a long time. At least not until some changes are made to armor mechanics.

 

Even in the hands of lower skill players, the Defender 252 was overperforming. Particular issues where the turret and lower plate.

 

So if WG stick to their principles here don't expect the Defender back on sale anywhere until they've fiddled with the armour mechanics and don;t expect that until after the roll out of version 1.0 and enCore at the end of March.

Now I know WG have a bad habit of not sticking to their word on the "we're not gong to sell it again" front (see the Mutant) but IMO I doubt we'll see the Defender again before the end of 2018, maybe in the advent calender.

Considering the IS-3A saw the same "OP" topics back in the day. But was released before a meta shift and was outdated in a few months. And going by how fast some changes have been of late. I suspect it will be sold next Xmas... as then it's not even good.

Like there's a question about it. They gave up the Type 59. They will sell the Defender too.

Any chance we might get conveniently annexed?

If Vladimir Putin has his way yes. See also the Medvedev Doctrine.

1992 Russia grabs part of Moldova (very short war)

Late 1999 - early 2000 second Chechen War (effective annexation of Chechena, and some land grabs in bordering territories)

August 2008 Russia takes large pieces of territory from Georgia.

2014 annexation of Crimea, & land grab in Ukraine (ongoing)

I may have missed a few small ones.

ZAPAD 2017 was a military exercise by the Russians as a practice for annexing Western Europe.
