I'm not good with these sorts of items but I'm curious. Also, what is a patent?

Patent = Intellectual Property = Basically means they own it more or less since the E-50M is a fake what if tank based on the actual E-50 design.

They have a tool that prevents anyone else adding it to their game. No idea how broad the patent is or how enforceable but it's probably enough to enable them to send a cease & desist and that might be all they're looking for to stop other companies trading on the E 50 M name and design that wouldn't exist if it wasn't for WoT.

Some of you might recall there was a WOT clone on FB that used not only WOT UI assets, but the E50M to. So that's more or less when they did "protect" it.

I had better hurry up and patent my 430UHT then. It's a heavily armoured medium that runs on long life milk.
