I was thinking of buying a new T8, but, I see the Srv 81 (Primo Victoria) is not available to buy, do we know if it will be back in the shop?

 

Also, before, there was the possibility to trade your ok premium, (I want to trade my SuperPershing) can I do that still?

Unless you want the Strv. 81 specifically, the Centurion 5/1 RAAC should be along soon and it's looking to be a slightly better version of the Centurion than the Strv. (which is slightly better than the regular Cent. 1). The 5/1 will be in the British tree so might be a more versatile crew trainer than the Swedish tank. Can't say for sure when either will be sold but the 5/1 is more likely to come sooner as it's already available for RU and NA.

 

Trade-in is only available at certain times. The last window was just after Christmas so it shouldn't be too long before it comes around again but as above, there's no telling exactly when. Might be worth noting that trade-in is only available against other premiums sold in the tech trees; you can't trade in a tank against a tank that's only sold through the premium shop.

The princess Victoria was a limited time offer connected with some band, presumably promoting their gramophone record or something.  It's anyone's guess if/when it will go on sale.

 

Trade in happens from time to time for limited periods, keep an eye on the news.  You only get half the value and can't trade for a lower tier tank, and the tanks you can trade for are limited to what is available to buy in game for gold.

Thanks guys, yea looked at QBs review now of the RAAC, seems like a nice tank, will wait for that one then! Hope it comes before Frontlines ends.

Oh no, now it got complicated, now I want the RAAC more, better engine, better ground resistance and hull armour, but worse shell velocity ... what to do, what to do!

Well the Princess is pretty useless as a crew trainer, and comes with (IMO) a stupid skin.

 

The FV4202 is available in game right now though, trains high tier British Medium crews, makes good credits, and isn't bad at all since they decided to go non-historical on it (after dropping it from tier X so they could give it it's RL stats).

Yea, at first I was going for that, or the STA-2, but after catching up on the Primo and RAAC I think it seems worse at everything except ground resistance and elevation according to tanks.gg.

 

Feels like I don't want to get it when they are better options out there. The RAAC is good since I have an AX already.
